    42110 - Land Rover Defender

    When I'm on HI selector with max speed, there is a lot of friction when pushing the car and the engine doesn't move. The car even goes in reverse when I release it. Is it a known issue or did I mess something while building it?

    42111 - Fast & Furious car

    Too bad that there will be a Fast and Furious logo on it.

    Future Pirates Speculation

    The 10210 Imperial Flagship could be re-released without any modification and it would still look perfect. (I kinda hope that it will happen)
  4. This picture seems to be a zoom on a catalogue for toys sellers.

    On the leaked photo, I can only see one minifig. Has anyone saw the others?

    42111 - Fast & Furious car

    Even if the set was good, the Fast and Furious licence would be a negative point for me: I think that the movies are very bad (except the first one). Not something that I would expose at home.

    Probably brick built in some way yes.. Some old canons have been released last year in the rollercoaster pirate set. No reason to not akso use them in this set.

    I'm a bit affraid by the lack of cloth sails. I hope that we will see some images soon or that someone who saw the set will give us more details about the sails.

    42114 - 6x6 Volvo Articulated Hauler

    What is the horizontal motor used for? It could be interesting if it is used to control a gearbox.

    42113 Bell V-22 Osprey Helicopter

    How big is it? Is it realy a control+ set or is it used as the old motors?

    Volvo seems to be a brand which tries to create good sets. I hope that they have push to have a B model.

    42114 - 6x6 Volvo Articulated Hauler

    There seem to only be 2193 pieces. It's small for a flagship. The price of the Control+ sets is only for the motors.

    The Control+ sets already released were very expensive for the number of pieces included. I hope that it won't be the case for the Volvo.

    It would be more logical to have all the "ultimate" cars at the same scale and without motor. The Lamborghini could also be an Urus.
  15. It's my first MOC / C model / Lego contest. C model of 42055 Bucket Wheel Excavator It is inspired by this ride. The structure and each branch rotate. The seats rotate thanks to the centrifugal force: the weight on the back of the seats and the inclination of the ride varies the rotation speed. The direction rotation of the seats can even change. --- Old first post My plan for TC14 is to create an attraction with 3 levels of rotation. I'd like to use only pieces from BWE 42055. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zYwtlriA37M&t=0s&list=WL&index=16 The deadline is close but I'm not really advanced. There will be 9 seats will be on top. But once I added the 2nd branch, the motor wasn't able to make it rotate anymore. I don't really know how to try to improve it : - Modify the black turntable to make it rotate. For now, it is fixed and it is only used to move the gears connected to it (https://bricksafe.com/files/Akbalder/tc14/tc_14_2.jpg/1280x960.jpg) - Connect a gear on the big yellow circle to make the structure rotate - Connect a gear on the big yellow circle to make the 2nd and 3rd levels of rotation

    [TC14] Dance - 42055 C model

    I'm glad you've been able to rebuild it. The lights are a nice addition.

    Grohl's Creations

    Very nice. I'm impatient to be able to build it.

    [TC14] Dance - 42055 C model

    The beam that goes through the middle of the turntable is only connected to a serie of 12T to go to the side of the turnable. The upper part is just placed on top of the turntable. I've found a photo with the upper part separated from the base. It may help you to see how it works: Happy new year ;)
  19. Not providing printed instructions for the B models may explain why a lot of people don't build them.

    42108 - Mobile Crane

    It looks nice. It uses the same stickers as the 42082. But not having a b model is very bad. The last 5 models don't have B model! It's worying for the future.

    LEGO Speed Champions 2020 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    Each set is 5€ more expensive in France. 65€ for the Lamorghinis is ridiculous.

    LEGO Speed Champions 2020 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    I've seen it in videogames: a car constructor allows the game developper to add a car that players want only if they also add a car that the car constructor wants to promote.
