  1. 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.

    42113 Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey

    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!

    42115 - Lamborghini Sian FKP 37

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

    42107 - Ducati Panigale V4R

    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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.

    42115 - Lamborghini Sian FKP 37

    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.

    42115 - Lamborghini Sian FKP 37

    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.

    42107 - Ducati Panigale 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.

    42115 - Lamborghini Sian FKP 37

    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.

    [MOC] PC Case With 3D Printed Parts

    Very cool!

    42115 - Lamborghini Sian FKP 37

    Actually, the Sian does have an active rear wing. Hopefully that feature is included.

    42107 - Ducati Panigale V4R

    Very impressive. The gearbox, brake discs, and windscreen are nice touches. It isn't easy to get certain shapes and details right with a Technic motorcycle, even in this scale. I do wish the new front fork pieces included some sort of attachment point for a fender and calipers, although playability would likely suffer. The lack of a radiator is noticeable, as well the rear being not as polished as the front half.

    42111 - Fast & Furious car

    Just got back from Walmart here in NY, and there were eight of these on the shelf along with quite a few Speed Champions sets. Packaging looks great in-store.

    [HELP] LEGO Digital Designer 4.3.12

    Jim, I have the 4.3.11 installer. I'm not sure where to upload it though; it's 311MB.
  24. I added extra liftarms around the rear, to make it level with the operator cabin and boom. I have also changed a few other things since then like replacing all visible red 2L axles, and I added a safety cage on top of the superstructure. Has anyone tried adding the new 15L actuators to this set? Perhaps there is not enough space? It is a shame that the boom on 42009 doesn't connect closer to the rear like on the real thing, but the gearbox is the issue there I suppose.
