    Having problems with Brown

    Fortunately I have yet to experience broken LEGO, I have noticed though from this thread and others, see fragile pieces on page 2, that the Browns and Reddish-Browns seem to be the ones that most often break. Must be something to do with the pigmentation process is all I can figure. I have just put together the Hans Christian Andersen story book, it has a lot of brown plates and they seem just as durable as other colors. It would be nice to know for sure what causes random breakage though, in hopes of avoiding disastrous consequences.
  2. There is no engine in the weighted block, they simply inject fuel in the cylinder then when the block drops driving the pile in, the fuel is compressed to the point of ignition driving the block back up where more fuel is injected and it does make a sudden drop. Like a one cylinder engine with the pile as a piston. The difference being the cylinder block moves up and down. You are right though when the fuel detonates the pile is driven in while the block is pushed back up at the same time.
  3. I am sure @Shroffy123 is glad, after 7 years, to get a definitive answer.

    2018 Speed Champions Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I have no news either way, I certainly do hope the theme continues though, I have grown rather fond of them. I do feel the build techniques have evolved for the better as well, with each new wave. There is only so much you can do differently at that scale though, so maybe the theme has run it's course. I do really hope SC goes on at least a couple more years.

    LEGO - 40291 Hans Christian Andersen

    Sitting here with the parts spread out in front of me, I have to agree with most others, fantastic set, very impressive part selection for sure, especially for a giveaway. I also noticed the other builds in the front of the instruction book, pictured in other post. From the looks of them they will just sit right into the book, like the swan scene included with the set. Does anyone know anything at all about those other scenes, will they be future giveaways, for sale or something else. I would very much like instructions for them, even though they look pretty easy to do from just the pictures. Well time to enjoy the build, fabulous set I would have easily paid $30 for this set, I know it is valued at $19.99 though.

    Forum upgrade done

    @sed6 Good to see you and others are really happy with the new upgrades, as well as me. Still I wonder if you still see those things if you are using a computer, since I don't have access to one and if those items are purposely omitted for phones.
  7. Just out of curiosity, what sort of battery would react so violently to moisture, I want to make sure I never purchase any of that type, scary stuff.

    Some Basic Layout Questions

    @RedBrick1 you may have some luck finding the color match of felt material by checking out what billiard table suppliers have to offer. When I worked at a pub they would re-felt the tables and I was always surprised with the large amount of choices they had.

    Forum upgrade done

    The only way I can peruse the forum is with my mobile device, having said that since the upgrade I no longer see ranks, post counts or badges. Did the upgrade eliminate these or is my phone just not showing everything.

    Marvel Superheroes 2018 - Set Discussion

    A yeah, sounds like an educated guess for bragging rights to be the first to leak news of new sets. But hey bring it on, tell us all about them JC.
  11. Cool, is this an improved version of your previous boat or a totally new beast. If i remember correctly you were having some issues with the last one with the props and power delivery.
  12. Yes I like this set too, nothing special but I will sure be getting it, I need those tires and bucket mostly but I still think overall it's a decent value and build.

    Rogue One Chess Set MOC

    Cool chess set I do agree though, put the higher ranked pieces on elevated pedestals. I also think the pawns should all be the same. More importantly turn the board so the white square is to the right of the player. I would say with a few more improvements you could make a good set a great set. Good job, brick on.
