  1. Really cool how you made this review! And smooth too. Love how the captain was sleeping with the treasure on that tiny island

    Should people buy Fake Chinese PF motors?

    Here in Sweden they're also temporarily out of stock, but I've been keeping an eye on them and they never become available. Maybe TLG makes them available differently across the globe. But I wonder, can't they just order a bigger supply from the manufacturer? I agree with you saying that posts could get removed, but maybe in this specific case the rules could be interpreted a little bit more flexible. Considering the situation. But I don't make the rules here, so it would be entirely up to the moderators to justify and enforce or not.

    Should people buy Fake Chinese PF motors?

    That's not very realistic anymore. I've been keeping my eye open for M motors and they've been out of stock for months(!!!). So yes I would buy fake motors, simply because that's the only thing you can actually buy (ignoring the official ones from 3rd parties who charge a ridiculous amount for them, also not a real option). And yet there are old official sets and lots of MOCs that use these motors. What you're implying is that you're simply out of luck to talk about it on eurobricks, even if you just want to get an old set back up and running. And when PF is officially discontinued? How will that be handled? What are you going to tell those people?

    "Kings And Queens Of The Sea" - Episodes

    Never knew this existed until this weekend. Seen the 1st 10 episodes by now and very much enjoying it. I find it relaxing and engaging and plan to fill some more evenings with it this week. It also brings back some very enjoyable memories from past times. Style wise it just clicks. But then again, I turned 41 this weekend, so like you I still remember a time when these things were more appreciated. It's nice to see these things still exist(ed) in a time when there's too much quick fix and simply uninteresting online 'garbage'. Thank you very much for making this series.
  5. I've build the MOC your bricks version and found that has the same issue. The long masts are wobbly, especially the main one. Was thinking of using round 2x2 bricks (e.g. Barracuda bay style) instead of the round technic connectors, but that seems to be too think at first glance. Maybe a combination of a big boat mast piece (part 48002a) topped of with the round technic connectors would work better. I don't have the parts available right now, so can't test to see if that works. Just a thought.

    [MOC] The treasure is at the bottom

    Very very nice and good to see something that combines ship with surroundings (below or above the waterline) Btw, this torso might fit in there somewhere; 4540738

    Lego BYGGLEK general discussion

    I ran into them in the store yesterday while looking for something to sort pieces. While Bygglek wasn't on my shopping list, I couldn't help to check it out, mainly the biggest box and its potential use as strong baseplate. Long story short, I thought the biggest box was flimsy and lightweight, especially compared to more generic plastic storage solutions. And waaaay overpriced for what you get, half price would already be pushing it. Swedish price is 149 SEK btw. Apart from that, why white? Throw in some colour for crying out loud, Lego is for kids (AFOLs can be considered kids as well on the inside ;)) and should be creative and playful. Not this boring white designer stuff...

    Modding the Barracuda thread

    Interesting island if real. I've only recently come out of my dark ages when it comes to pirates and Barracuda bay was my entrypoint again. Day 1 purchase, but now I'm looking to expand beyond the ship and island leftover. I've decided not to spend insane amounts on buying old sets, but take it slow and see what comes along. Ninjago has surprisingly been on the radar due to a good pricepoint and possible pirate MOCs. E.g. I took The Skull Magician's Caves (71722) as basis for a skull island. Rip off some parts, replace lava with beach and stick some palmtrees and plants on. Works surprisingly well! Also build the latest Destiny's Bounty, but that requires more extensive work for it to function as let's say an asian pirate ship. But I like the shaping of it more than the creator 3 in 1 set, so I'd like to have a go at it when time permits. PS, apologies for being a little off topic. The post above triggered something that's been in my head for a while.

    Delays with customer service

    Still waiting on a customer service response, so I can't say the time that took yet. Auto reply says that it takes a little bit longer due to COVID-19 and that they're working from home. No timeframe giving. Swedish btw, maybe differs from other countries. I did get a shipment notification email concerning bricks and pieces yesterday. Took exactly a month.

    LEGO Ninjago 2021

    Promobricks updated their post on August 18. It's now 5685 pieces and over 20 minifigs. If true, really looking forward to this set! https://www.promobricks.de/lego-71741-ninjago-city-gardens-2021/106965/

    Future Set Wishes and Speculation

    To quote official Lego PR; "With digital tools, building and playing are even more fun" Fully agree with you. Really hope the future holds a handset/controller solution. I've declared a personal moratorium on buying any new PU sets until further notice

    [MOC] AZURA LMP2 Racing Car

    While I have nothing with racing cars in general, I have to admit I very much like this one and would like to build it someday. Do you have any video of it driving? I'd be very interested to see how it performs with the PU motors.

    Quantity over quality?

    Please don't turn this into another discussion about that specific set. There's a dedicated topic for it. No. Why would I buy a product from a manufacturer that can't even get their colours correct. Then there's other manufacturers with interesting designs, at similar prices, and actually have their act together. TLG really needs to ask itself what sets them apart from the rest.
  14. Full price it would be way too expensive. The Tatra would cost 5000 SEK just in PU components. For comparison; the Liebherr R 9800 costs the same. This just brings home that TLGs pricing is just completely delusional. Now bricklinking the PU components makes these kinds of projects viable (for the time being at least). Now we're talking. If only instructions were available.... but he/she already said no in the comments And the new planetary wheel hubs of course. Hope they'll go down in price soon. I simply refuse to buy 42099 for the hubs, even with massive discounts. By the looks of it, stores just can't get rid of these sets.
