  1. RC4WD Wheel Adapters

    12mm hex wheels offer a great variety for both crawlers and 1/10th scale street wheels. I'd like to see a supercar fitted with some of these, or the 3D printed variety.
  2. RC4WD Wheel Adapters

    I've been spending some time with the RC hobby the last couple months, building my own 1/8th scale car. The price for those adapters is wayyy out of proportion. It looks like a nice piece, but adapters are usually 12-25$ for a full set, and that's for machined metal. The 3D printed ones seem more cost effective, and Lego doesn't necessarily need metal in that area for the torque they deal with, as long as the threading is metal.
  3. No more MOCs from me folks, but i will be sticking around to enjoy everyone's new creations!

  4. Rally car looks interesting apart from the boxy wheel arches and baby blue, the B-model is nice, but as others have said, same recycled internals with no new interesting mechanisms.
  5. Excellent. This is probably the highest attainable level of fun with pure Lego parts. Agreed, softer springs would offer better traction on that rough terrain, minus that both models are tastefully built, and nice homages to the original.
  6. The two sets I rebuilt have been sold.

  7. You can PM me for a direct transaction, would be best so I can avoid dealing with ebay fees. Over the next couple days i will put listings on ebay unless i get offers for them sooner. When I add them I will link it here.
  8. Selling the remainder of my collection, so I created bulk lots based on part type or color. Will create ebay listings, but making a topic since I'm open to offers (from USA, otherwise shipping is a killer).

  9. So I rebuilt two of the valuable sets from my collection, sold some individual parts, and now I am still left with the majority of my collection, so I decided to create bulk lots ranging from 6 ounces to over 3 pounds based on part type or color. This seems to be a method that works, proven by the hundreds of ebay transactions I've seen The list is as follows: T̶e̶c̶h̶n̶i̶c̶ ̶C̶o̶n̶n̶e̶c̶t̶o̶r̶s̶ ̶-̶ ̶2̶ ̶l̶b̶ - SOLD Black Liftarms - 1 lb 12 oz - $18 Red Liftarms - 10 oz - $5 Orange Liftarms - 6 oz - $3 Yellow Liftarms - 11 oz - $5 DBG/DG Liftarms - 11 oz - $5 LBG Liftarms - 13 oz - $10 White/VLBG Liftarms - 8 oz - $4 Pneumatic Parts (I modified 2/3 cylinders into heavy duty shock absorbers) - 3 oz - $6 Treads and Sprockets (includes 260 large DBG treads) - 1 lb - $10 Technic Engine Parts (cylinders/cams/pulleys/blocks etc) - 8 oz - $6 Technic Bricks/studded box frames 3lb 4 oz - $24 Assorted Plates and Bricks - 2lb 10 oz - $15 Thin liftarms with axle holes - 7 oz - $3.50 Bionicle Limbs, Chest Pieces, useful in Technic - 1 lb 9 oz - $14 Bionicle Joints/Connectors/etc - 1 lb 10 oz - $16 Assorted Plates and Studs - 1 lb - $7 Technic Pins (including roughly 500 black pins) - 1 lb - $5 Technic Axles (including custom made metal axles), Bushings, Axle Pins - 1 lb 13 oz - $16 Technic Gears/turntables and Transmission parts - 1 lb 2 oz - $15 Assorted Minifig parts (including chrome) and small pieces - 9 oz - $5 Old Technic Panels - 7 oz - $4 5x11 and 3x11 Technic Panels (27 total) - 7 oz - $15 Suspension/Steering/Drivetrain parts - 1 lb - $20 Parts from set 8840 - 8 oz - $3 Assorted Wheels and Tires - 3lb 6 oz - $20 LBG 5x7, 5x11, and H Frames - 7 oz - $12 Flex Axles - 4 oz - $5 Modern Technic Panels - 10 oz - $8 Thin Liftarm L Frames - 5 oz - $3 Tubing (pneumatic and decorative) - 3 oz - $3 Random Parts/pullbacks/netting/mindstorms spheres - 1 lb 3 oz - $11 3D Printed Lego parts - 3 oz - $6 Shipping: This is within the USA and may vary slightly based on specific location (items that are 12-14 oz jump to priority shipping costs when packaging is included) 0-5 oz: $2.70 (first class) 4-7 oz: $3.00 (first class) 8-11 oz: $4.00 (first class) 12-27 oz: $7.00 (priority) 28-43 oz: $8.00 (priority) 44-59 oz: $9.00 (priority) orders 3-4lb+ may be shipped via fedex if it's cheaper. *The more lots/order the more cost effective the shipping is* Photos in this Brickshelf Gallery (now public) Link
  10. Selling 8157, preferably to US and Canada. No parts missing, but some stickers on nose missing. Outfitted with custom white wheels by efferman on Shapeways. Rebuilt this week, so no dust. No box or instructions. Priced at $115, and additional shipping fee (roughly 15$ with fedex) Pics:
  11. The 8157 is one of my favorite models of all time, easily the best looking official F1 set, although it lacks in functionality. As I'm selling my collection, I'm rebuilding my largest sets to sell, and this one is hard to part with. Since I don't have the original rims anymore, I substituted some 3D printed wheels designed by effe, and it really makes the car pop! This set needs more appreciation, as the designers really nailed the level of detail. Not sure where to post, I felt here or Lego Licensed would make the most sense. If we can't post official sets, my bad! Photos:
  12. I might consider building them again after seeing their value. Hopefully I still have everything. PM'd each of you.
  13. I remembered some sets I purchased as I built my collection. The two largest that I have the most parts from are the 8053 Mobile Crane and the 7662 Trade Federation MTT (large Star Wars droid carrier from 2007). Would it be more profitable to build these models up and sell them? (no box or instructions)
  14. Hi, I decided to part with my collection, so I just wanted to create a topic with some photos of my collection if anyone is interested to buy it as a whole, whether it be for a BrickLink store or expanding a personal collection. UPDATE: buggy motors sold on BL a box of wheels/tires, and if you noticed, some 3rd party tires and 3d printed wheels, also one of my containers has some 3d printed Technic parts^^ An entire car frame full of black Technic bricks, Technic box frames, plates, liftarms, and bionicle ball joint pieces that I have yet to disassemble: Normal bricks, plates, and a bag full of smaller unique pieces and minifigure parts/attachments: Some more Technic parts that need to be disassembled, a bag of older Technic bricks and pieces from a old buggy set, and the last 2 of my buggy motors: ^buggy motors sold^ PM or post here if you are interested, or if you know someone or a place that would welcome an entire collection, please direct me there. Thanks!
  15. My BrickLink of course if someone decided to buy all inventory i would freeze the store and remove all entries. [UPDATE] Buggy motors were sold on BrickLink! here are some photos: a box of wheels/tires, and if you noticed, some 3rd party tires and 3d printed wheels, also one of my containers has some 3d printed Technic parts^^ I sold some tires, here are the remaining notable ones: And a some small wheels and tires: An entire car frame full of black Technic bricks, Technic box frames, plates, liftarms, and bionicle ball joint pieces that I have yet to disassemble: Normal bricks, plates, and a bag full of smaller unique pieces and minifigure parts/attachments: Some more Technic parts that need to be disassembled, a bag of older Technic bricks and pieces from a old buggy set, and the last 2 of my buggy motors: ^buggy motors were just sold on BrickLink^
