    [Review] 40358: Bean There, Donut That

    We owe you thanks for the review. But I would especially like to thank you for the taxonomy/relationships of the people parts. If it IS a promo, then that might explain the price to brick ratio. Promos frequently have obscene prices.

    Bricklink questions

    I have never received such on Brickowl or ebay. There is still a minimal amount of figures that have been cloned, so it's not very much trouble to double check the ones that "could be". My wife is super hardcore about Lego only, so I don't worry too much because it won't get past her. We have received off brand bricks (megablocks, or whatever) as aparts of used sets on ebay. Usually this is a trifle.

    Town Forum Review Requests

    I would love to hear ASAP about a hands on with 853840 Xtra road playmat set. How it feels, opinions about durability. Ability to connect with base plates (edge to edge). Stacking base plates on them so a creator expert building (or whatever) could be right up to the edge of the road. Sizing and scale. Compatibility with the current studded road plates. Please and thank you.

    (MOC) The Elvan Seaport of Elvadion

    I really like your use of the elves. Personally, I am quite happy to mix Elves elves with Lego people, and having the Elves just be a tall race (or races). Please tell me, did you use an intentional mini doll specific scale here? Or did you just sort of make it work? I get so used to minifig scale that when we work in minidoll i get thrown, and my results in fixing it are pretty weak.

    Post your general LEGO Star Wars questions here

    The stud face on the Guavian soldiers (specifically 75180 Rathtar Escape). Is the stud tall enough and the proper dimensions to interface with 1X1 round females? Such as a 1X1 round plate or 1X1 cylinder?
  6. I am looking for a small onboard wireless camera with a real time stream for inclusion in various remote operated and self operated builds. Also not looking to break the bank. Does anyone have any suggestions/experience/reviews?

    Linear Actuators VS Pneumatics

    I am looking to build a stationary baler. Think cardboard, not hay. Clearly, the pneumatic option would look more realistic and claim realism. But I suspect the LA might actually make the device "function" more true to life. Does anyone have any suggestions in the realm of actually smooshing things to bale? I considered using parallel pneumatics, but that would actually look sillier than the LA.
  8. I am planning to build a model of a real world processing machine. It doesn't have DO all the work, but the parts should move the same. The alternate build of 42055 (Aggregate Processing Plant) seems to be a reasonable place to start. Does anyone have any suggestions on other lego builds or MOCs I should review for inspiration?

    Lego GBC Minecart Module

    Could you use a second string and wheel to connect the carts at the bottom as well, so that one cart going up pulls the other cart down? Anyway, I think I just had my mind blown as regards my current thought-project. Seeing what you have going on and realizing just how much I am taking on.

    modifying hands?

    Simple hand functions. Fists, Hi 5s, maybe a ImI for rock n' roll.

    modifying hands?

    Does anyone have any hints (or links to reliable info) about molding the lego hands? They cut easily enough with a razor blade, but don't like to bend. I assume there's a number of options, heat, chemical, etc. But I'd rather not reinvent the wheel.
  12. Can anyone make a reasonable prediction on how the Jurassic World sets will go at retail outlets. A local store currently has an "ok" sale. These are sets that I would ordinarily wait for price drops later in their life. But it sounds like the last JW run didn't have much of a "later life". Can anyone chat about how the first JW sets did at retail (duration, frequency of sales, etc).
  13. I just recieved a cut price 31313. Box damaged, some bags open, etc. All major parts present. I don't have time to jump into playing around with it. Is there an easy way to test the EV3 and other electronic components? Something akin to a printer's test print page?

    Boost/value

    I am sorry if this forum isn't where Boost lives, but it seemed like the best choice. With the Boost Toolboxes starting to go clearance, what are people's general feelings about the value of the set? Yes, it's limited. Yes, there's a lot of non-Technic pieces. But, as the value of the parts. And the capability of the programmer/controller. Is it worthwhile? Is it cute/fun to play around with? Is it too "cute". Note: I mean this for me, an adult.
  15. Thank you, that's why I chose it. I was hoping to get the box from lego.com and the minifig factory. Looks like lego.com doesn't do that. Maybe I'll talk to some store managers in person (ugh).
