  1. This is the method I follow most of the time, build with parts first (the color doesn’t matter) and do a digital model if it’s worth showing. I did do a digital model first once with a non-Technic build and it turned out fantastic, so there is a great advantage if you have a particularly bad sorting system for parts (like my normal brick collection).

    In this case, I would orient the pins so the bends cancel out. Not the quality I expect from LEGO, but also not the end of the world.

    Huh, I just checked my copy and you are right. It is so minor that I doubt it will make much of a difference in a rigid construction.

    From my testing the older version seems to run better at sharp angles. I’m disappointed in the new version’s binding when spun close to maximum angle.

    My massive B&P haul arrived yesterday, but I sorted it already so no photos. It included 20x the new light bley 3L push pins, 50x black Technic bushings, tons of dark green panels (I may be building a dark green car out of spite), 4x the new long thick CV joints, all of the new Zetros color parts, 4x thin VW T2 tires, 20x white half bushings, 4x long 1x11 pneumatic cylinders, 2x large compressors, 4x 7x11 frames, along with many, many more parts. I've already used the new 3L pins, they are very useful!

    The long cylinders from 42128 are now available at Bricks & Pieces for a bit under $8 USD a piece.

    LEGO Creator Expert 10271 Fiat 500

    I don’t get it, why would LEGO do that? Making that many recolours in the same set is confusing to me, I don’t see why it is worth it.
  8. A rally car / rallycross model competition would be neat. People could use RC with the new buggy tires or whatnot.

    I’ve seen red, trans dark blue, trans neon orange, trans neon green (my favorite, too bad they’re impossible to get), white and DBG.

    1990 Honda NSX

    Very awesome model! I had the opportunity last week to ride in a 2000 NSX-T, and it was very cool! You did an excellent job capturing the lines of the bodywork and the pop-up headlights are great! I wonder how it would look in a blue color.

    @2GodBDGlory @N-4K0 on photos of the set this part comes in (Darth Vader chamber), it shows a bar hole through the stop end. I believe a bar can be inserted fully through it.

    I’m not sure about that, the Education wind turbine blades were recently re-released and B&P has them for $149.00 each?!?!?!

    42128 - Heavy-Duty Tow Truck

    Unfortunately they ran out right when I arrived. Looks like I have to wait 60 days

    42128 - Heavy-Duty Tow Truck

    I am going to try to get this today — I’m driving across the state for something (unfortunate timing) and will stop at a LEGO store on the way. Hopefully they don’t run out of stock by 2 as apparently there will be shipping delays in NA.
