    Technic 2020 Set Discussion

    Doesn't need a license imo and i don't want to pay for a license for every set. We had lots of sets without a license and people bought them. I just want yellow black and grey construction vehicles. My favorite Technic set is the 1997 front loader 8459 Its got 4wd with engine, steering and pneumatic in a small set and no one would miss a license on that thing. And no one bought an Arocs or a Volvo loader just for the license. If these sets don't have a license and look a bit different people would still buy them becaus they are good (apart from the top gear rally car, even without the license it would be rubbish )

    Technic 2020 Set Discussion

    If we get a big Backhoe this year i just hope it won't have any of that control+ stuff! I like the Liebherr but won't buy it since i don't think the app gets supportet more than 5 years... I wonder if we will get the next big super car, Porsche in 2016, Bugatti in 2018, so maybe one in 2020?
  4. I had the same problem with the Ship in a Bottle set. Reddish brown 1x1 plates with clip (used to attach sails to mast) all have cracked! Had to call customer service and they send new.

    Poor sticker quality for 60197

    I agree, stickers gone worse and worse over the years. The stickers from a lot of recent sets i got are already peeling off and break to bits. I have 75874 and the red camaros stickers are fine, but the one from the black one are ruined.
  6. I like how the CaDA logo kinda says CaDFI

    Technic 2020 Set Discussion

    I like the boat, Claas and the buggy, small sets remind me on older technic times with small vehicles with a few functions (not quite on the level 8459 , but still not bad) Crane looks cool, mini version of the 2013 one. But iam not a fan of: rally car. -Why does it have a Top Gear license? I see no need for it and it makes the price higher than it should be. -Looks kinda crude and unfinished, especially with those stickers. -And again, no additional RC control, just the App which we don't know if it gets supported long term. Stunt bike and pickup -looks unfinished -does not really belong into technic Pullbacks: Dont't look bad but i hate pullbacks

    [moc] Shay Class A geared Locomotive

    Yeah, i tried a 3 truck version but it looked quite long and not right, so i stick with 2 truck 2 cylinder. Maybe try 8 studs wide, and maybe try the rare 2 cylinder 3 trucks version...

    [MOC] Generic American Diesel Electric Locomotive

    The switch part itself has a little black switch in front. So it does not matter in which direction you turn the orange switch, since you can turn direction with the black one! But there is also a version of that part with no black small switch! with bb0339c01 and without bb0339c02 I did the same thing with the Maersk set as well, both locos together and you can haul tons of rolling stock with it, as long as the locos are heavy and have some weight on the wheels. And if you want even more traction, remove the bands from the wheels and try white rubber bands ;)
  12. Over 4 years ago i builded this one, slightly based on the Maersk set. Its got a rechargeable battery, infrared sensor, 2 motors and a switch so one motor won't turn backwards. Cab technique, i actually forgot over the years that these bricks have a 2l cheese inside them :D This assembly is only attached with that lamp holder.
  13. I decided that i show my Shay Class A locomotive here because why not :) The original design in legoform was i think from Stephan Pakbaz. I builded it about 4 1/2 years ago and it works fine and reliable since then. Its got a rechargeable battery, infrared sensor, 2 old lights and a small motor. It ruined a couple of u-joints but thats TLGs fault for not making them strong enough It has one custom part for the crankshaft to angle the middle bit 90°, and the wheels have a custom painted silver ring. Sorry about those watermarks

    42078 Mack Anthem Mods and improvements

    Try to remove the little offcenter hump on the ring in the middle, and maybe use a pointed punch to add a 10th dot to that ring to get 10 "lug nuts".

    42110 - Land Rover Defender

    Wow, if this is from the factory and not bend by yourself, sell it on ebay :D
