  1. Very cool! Please submit to LEGO Ideas! I own Curiosity, and this would be a nice set to have alongside her.

    latest lego quality standards

    I purchased the Defender last month and the color variation has been mostly nonexistent. That is, until I got to the power dome on the hood. It looks even worse in person, and the LEGO rep on the phone was a bit snarky about it. For such a visible area I expect better quality.
  3. It is rubbing on what would be the outer rim. This is the left front, and it occurs on both sides.
  4. I am just about half way through building Pimp up my Defender v1.3, and noticed something worrying. Is it normal for the rims to rub against the steering arms at full lock?

    A 1:10 scale new Ford Bronco to go alongside the Defender? Yes please!

    Wow, that is pretty bad. I would absolutely contact them and tell them about it. For $350+ this is unacceptable. I am hesitant to purchase this set because of the color differences, and LEGO is seemingly okay with leaving it as is. They have denied others requests for replacement parts from what I hear.
  7. That looks fantastic actually. Just curious, what color is underneath the gold paint?

    42113 Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey

    I'm quite jealous seeing how many people in the UK were able to find one(or three). It looks great with the DBG and orange color scheme, and would be a great display piece.

    I really wanted this set, but not for $1500US! If you have a popular YouTube channel it might be worth it.

    They just now discovered that the V-22 is used in the military?

    42107 - Ducati Panigale V4R

    Just for an experiement I built the Ducati swingarm to try on my 42036, but soon noticed that the chain is not parallel due to the gears and hub that are used. Is this right? Pretty sure I built it correctly. It's also not that stiff as a structure.

    Yikes! Not good at all. Quality has definitely taken a hit in recent years.

    It's a beauty! I really wish I could build it!

    The floating liftarm/blue pin near the rear fender panel?

    In case anyone had been waiting, Bricks & Pieces is now available in the US. I grabbed the new brake discs and a wide rear tire.

    Nice I'm thinking about ordering this from Europe, and the total cost is actually not far off the US msrp.

    42115 - Lamborghini Sian FKP 37

    I'm lime green with envy right now... I have decided to wait until general release so I can use a gift card on the purchase. $400 US is more than I care to spend right now.
  18. Great review as always, and so fast! I see you brought up one of my only concerns with this set, the painted rims. I wonder what color is beneath the gold paint and how durable it really is.
  19. The unboxing experience is obviously something that many consumers do care about. Just look at the countless unboxing videos on YouTube featuring the latest and greatest tech products, and how many views they get. They want people to feel as though they are getting a taste of actually buying a Lamborghini.

    It may not be a technical leap above the Chiron, but for me it smashes the two previous releases in terms of presence. It is stunning.

    I'm curious how the doors will work too. The return of dampers, white rubber bands, or nothing at all? The doors on the Sian, like the Aventador, open outwards while opening up, and not just straight upward like on the Countach or Diablo.

    42107 - Ducati Panigale V4R

    Ducati actually switched back to a more conventional suspension with the V4, V4S, and V4R.

    Oooh! Nice! Time to start modding, albeit digitally for now. I still find it utterly bizarre that this arrives on August 1st here in the US.

    Well I think it looks fantastic, and I'm beyond happy that it appears to be lime green or at least something similar. The gaps are well placed and everything flows quite nicely. The roof is a bit flat, but the designers must have figured the 3x13 or the new panels were too convex in shape perhaps? Can't wait to see the rear now, and of course the Technic bits on the inside.
