About kungpo

  1. I spoke to customer services this morning - the lady said they've been informed that around the beginning of November they think backorders will ship. But might be sooner. But I think November looks likely,
  2. [MOC] Palace of Westminster

    Simply Outstanding!
  3. Well, I'm going to give this a go soon - got some 14mm marbles and the instructions. Just need to find some time!
  4. Late to the modular game *update pg 3!*

    Me too - it's the only one I haven't got. But not going to pay £1K for one now. Might build a Blue Grocer one day I suppose.
  5. Good to know - any recommended sellers? As I'm missing the GC from my modulars collection I think I will get one of those as I'm not quite ready to spend £1K on the real deal. And perhaps another UCS Falcon so I can put my genuine one away. Thank you - that's really useful and nice to get a balanced view.
  6. I'm tempted to get something to see what the quality is like - but ordering from China feels a bit tedious. Anyone had any success so far buying something from AliExpress?
  7. From Facebook: I have been hearing some concerns with lepin bricks, apparently it has been giving people itchy skin. I do not know if this is the plastic or the oils they use for the molding process. I did not notice it when building the ninjago temple or the 2 star wars sets but I have seen more and more people online mention it. So I do feel the need to mention it and warn people. And of cos ask anyone if they have experienced and irritation or itchiness from any of the knockoff brands and wonder if this is dangerous long term. Keep the kids safe! Thanks!
  8. The Cyclone - LEGO Compatible Roller Coaster

    I've backed it as well. I was one of the lucky ones to get the Rollercoaster factory but sadly not had the time to explore it.
  9. Lego Star Wars Electric AT AT walker

    There is a Mindstorms version from a while back as well. Bit more skeletal in appearance.
  10. See if you can collect the bits to make an 8043 - this is an amazing build as well. Some yellow panels are quite rare/expensive but you don't have to make it yellow (red and white has been done). You will need more M motors and some IR transmitters but both are fairly cheap. If you can locate a cheap 42006 on eBay that's a good place to start as a donor set.
  11. Request: Fairground Sets

    Don't forget the Grand Carousel (10196) as well - older but certainly part of the same theme I'd say.
  12. Lego HQ UK?

    They have a big office in Slough - I thought that was the UK Head Office?
  13. using bleach on lego parts?

    Here's the topic: http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=7167 Although it is based on a technique called Retr0bright http://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-Retrobright-Whitening-solution/
  14. using bleach on lego parts?

    Don't do it - there is another topic somewhere where you can use peroxide and oxy to reverse the discolouration. Bleach will weaken the plastic.
