    REVIEW: 10245 Santa's Workshop

    Great job reviewing this. looks pretty good to me. I missed the toy store and post office in this series but will pick them up at some stage used. This should be a great addition.

    What to do when an Era ends?

    I have a good back up of stock for both my 9 volt and PF trains. Regardless of whether it's going to be replaced by something new or not, you can never have too many spares!
  3. I do the same. Will be doing away with the switch soon and opening up one of the motors to alter the polarity so it runs in the same direction without the switch.
  4. Already been said. I have several long freight trains. My Maersk with 2 motors can pull 2 engines and 6 flatbeds ok. Same with my 7939 cargo, it can pull up to 8 cars but i have 5 octans on that which are pretty light. I haven't ran my 9 volt stuff yet to test so will be interesting to see how it goes. BNSF with 5 double stacks and santa fe with 6 passenger cars, someone here may know on those.

  6. Guy in hong kong has these on bricklink, i bought 3 recently off him, great to deal with. Worked out roughly about $240 each at my door

    Review: 4999 Vestas Power Plant promo set

    I ended up finding a new and sealed one of these within an hours drive of my house! A Vestas employee who doesn't collect lego decided to sell it to clear a bit of room in his shed. (Yes you heard me, his shed!) I was suprised when i made the trek to discover it was in pristine condition so i snapped it up. His mate who worked on the same local project and lives in the same area also has one which he opened is also looking to sell so i'm in the process of grabbing his as well. Given i'm halfway through bricklinking one looks like i'll go from having none to 3 in a short space of time! :)

    Your LEGO regrets

    Pretty much missing out on the following 10182, 10196, 10185. I've since built a carousel and i'm working on the other two as we speak. I think everyone regrets selling their childhood collection. Having kids now it would be awesome to see them getting the same enjoyment out of them that i did.

    Boxes - do you keep them?

    I keep them, simply because the collector in me doesn't want to throw them out. Storage is starting to become an issue so i'll have to start the flattening process soon, have been putting it off.

    Where to find cheaper LEGO City roadplates?

    $15 for a standard 2 pack here in oz. Even the 626 green baseplate is $10! Target had them at 20% off recently and at their already cheaper price it bought them down to $6.75 each. I bought the lot, around 15 from memory.
  11. Ordered the sandcrawler, can't wait for it to show up!

    10244 Fairground Mixer

    Love it! This will go well with my carousel and ferris wheel. Liking the truck, lots of room for mods on that one. Will be getting this along with the sandcrawler, my wallet hates me!

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    They're both great, so there's no wrong decision. I'd probably go the TH first but that's just me.

    MOC: Roller coaster

    That's really cool, nice job!

    What Video Game(s) are you playing?

    The last of us. Just started playing the hardest setting and dying heaps once i leave the boston QZ!
  16. Love it mate, fantastic models. Love the 10027 shed moc and switch tower.
  17. Thanks for the tip. Rang up and got 2 sent down to my local store for $0 shipping! Given it's a 3 hour drive saved me a bunch. I plane on boosting my parts inventory so this is a good start.
  18. I've bricklinked 2 of these. Was lucky enough at the time to build them when the sails wern't too bad price wise, about $22au each. The sound bricks were good too at $40au each. Wouldn't do it now, sound brick is crazy at $150+!

    NEWS 2014 trains!

    The 2 new ones don't do much for me so i'll probably give them a miss. I have waaaay too many trains as it is, if there is such a thing!

    Best sets to get to start a town?

    I started collecting for mine 2 years ago and being that i'm heavily into trains, have since bought heaps of trains and sort of neglected my buildings! I do however have quite a few modulars, town square, bus and tram set (8404) which is a beauty of a set. I've also bought lots of the creator houses whenever they're on sale as they're a great source for parts, plus you can build 3 different houses with them!

    Fire Brigade Discontinued?

    $300au for the FB here, which has always been the case :( I bought mine 18 months ago off bricklink for half that price, bought 2 at the time, still have one sitting in the box. I"ve just started on my GG tonight by buying the instructions, then it's on to the sand greens. I love the challenge of building the set from scratch. Had a ball doing the 10179 falcon!
  22. If it's too good to be true, it usually is. Hope it turns out ok for the op but i wouldn't hold my breath.
  23. Loving it, awesome work.

    [MOC] CAT D7R LGP Bulldozer (with PF)

    Love this. I'm a earthmoving contractor by trade and we have a D7H here, these kind of builds i admire greatly. Excellent job and detail.
  25. That is awesome.Always inspires me to get off my bum and get my city off and running. All those trains sitting in my cupboard, such a waste!
