  1. Not sure why and I am sorry if this comes off a bit too strong but I hate it, lol, just looks plain sloppy to me. Really not trying to be offensive, not even sure where to start, so much I don't care for. I do feel like it could be much improved though and shows great potential, maybe it's just the style of building I don't like and I would have said nothing if it didn't show promise. As I said please don't be offended, just one persons opinion, that doesn't amount to a pile of beans.

    Lego purchase limits reset

    Wow that is news to me, I certainly wouldn't think LEGO has the power to control how many sets you buy from other retailers.

    [Poll] Do you like LEGO as a company?

    Had to vote no, love my LEGO but I care none for any large corporation, too much greed and wasted talent. Just my opinion and I recognize it is likely a necessary evil but I just can't buy into the hype, that is a major corporation.

    Be very interested in seeing how it turns out, can't wait to see it.

    Problem with 46524 (light & sound)

    The "one" I have is still working, about a year of very light use. Anyway there are two screws in the bottom, so it looks fairly easy to switch out the battery. Just opened up, just a simple 3v coin battery looks pretty easy to change. One thing too, although you probably already tried, sometimes you have to hold the button down for a second or two for it to actually start, instead of the one light coming on for a split second.
  6. My choice for starting out with PU was the buggy, I thought it made the most sense to check out PU with and I still think I made the right decision. Not only for two L motors and Hub but also for those new tires and new Lift arms with alternating holes, the big gear wheel, two soft shocks, two hard shocks and the front suspension components. All stuff I have found very useful for other mocs. Also the new differential. In fact, considering the price of other PU sets, I may actually pick up a second copy, if I can find one, they seem to be getting a little harder to find.
  7. I used to do that too, now I have an overabundance of pullback motors, so I avoid those sets now. Those balloon tires are quite common as well and you will soon accumulate more than you will ever need. I do however still like to get parts from sets, so I look for sets with not so common useful parts. I prefer doing this rather than just buying parts, it may be cheaper to buy specific parts but it is much less economical. More importantly I just try to enjoy building and don't really think there is a wrong way to play with LEGO.
  8. I used to never do it, but lately I find myself doing modules more and more. The biggest reason is when something doesn't work out exactly how I want it to, I don't have to rebuild half the structure, I can simply rework the module. The plus side is my mocs are much more refined from the start, providing I actually finish it, lol.
  9. Lol, yes, yes I do. And here I thought I was the only one.
  10. Really makes me wonder, how many people are on the payroll, that have nothing at all to do with manufacturing or designing of LEGO products and how much this effects the final cost of sets.

    Help with identifying parts/sets!

    Not LEGO, that much we know, straight from the creator.

    How do you wipe your Lego box?

    Most ot mine are in the older plastic bags but the paper ones work just as well. I fold them over and put a very small piece of blue painters tape on it to keep it closed. Think of a wrapped Christmas present, the blue tape is made for easy release with minimal damage to the bag.

    How do those people create MOC?

    That is something that comes with time and why I say practice, there is no substitute for experience.

    How do you wipe your Lego box?

    I have always just used a damp sponge, with no issues whatsoever. Not so damp as to leave moisture on the box of course. I also find it is a good idea to keep boxed sets inside of the bag it comes in too, then the box doesn't even get dusty.

    How do those people create MOC?

    Practice, start small, don't try and make some huge building at first. Also I find it helps to just concentrate on certain sections at a time then join them together. Like just build a simple one room cabin first. Other than that it does help to be able to visualize your design first, I have even sketched the basic shape out on paper, don't worry to much about details at first. Tear it apart and try again, lol. Anyway that's how I do it. There are software programs available but as far as I know they don't actually show you how to assemble bricks and I don't use them anyway. Practice and look at what others have done, experiment with different parts and have fun, best advice I can offer.
