  1. 60051 x2 motor placement

    I didn't extend the locomotives - just the carriages. The Lego LEDs fit in the nose ok.
  2. 60051 x2 motor placement

    I found 2x 60051 doesn't have quite enough pieces for 4 carriages and found myself getting another unpowered engine to get the requisite pieces to make the 4th carriage (only because it was much cheaper than another carriage). You might then find the carriages look disproportionally short compared to the "engines" so I then extended mine to 28 studs long.
  3. I believe some online backorders are going through. My order from the launch date has changed to "In Warehouse" which I assume means it will ship soon.
  4. They do indeed. Just popped in and got one!
  5. I have to find this lack of decent communications from Lego quite frustrating. For those of us who have a backorder from S@H seem to have had no indication on when we might get them yet those that put themselves on the waitlist in store are getting them sooner. Argghhhh!
  6. 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,
  7. [MOC] Palace of Westminster

    Simply Outstanding!
  8. Well, I'm going to give this a go soon - got some 14mm marbles and the instructions. Just need to find some time!
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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?
  12. 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!
  13. 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.
  14. Lego Star Wars Electric AT AT walker

    There is a Mindstorms version from a while back as well. Bit more skeletal in appearance.
