  1. New PF Remote

    ^ yeah, it's not like they wouldn't have done ANY product testing with the target age group, or anything like that, is it?
  2. 2018 Lego Trains

    The train controller for the two new sets is a handheld one, similar to the current one, but looks to be primarily white. The two dials look slightly strange - like a solid 3-long liftarm has been stuck across each dial, presumably to give kids something to grip to turn it. I'm not confident there's anywhere to stick an axle into the dials, as on the current controller, although there could be.
  3. LEGO Star Wars 2018 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!

    *sigh* I try to tell people what I remember, and some ungrateful b*****ds have a go at me for it. There's gratitude for you. Look, I like Star Wars, I've seen the films. But I'm not someone who can tell you exactly what happened in each scene on Cloud City, or who was in each scene, or be able to recite the dialogue word for word etc etc, like most of you probably can. I can't even remember the last time I saw Empire Strikes Back, but it probably wasn't in the last year. So I can't look at a set and say 'ooh, that's that scene, and this is that scene, and they've included X, Y and Z minifigures, etc etc. I recognised Slave 1 because it's very recognisable, but I honestly couldn't tell you what a Cloud Car looks like. Hell, I've just googled it and I can't even remember it being in the sodding film, let alone whether it was in the set. Perhaps you'd all just prefer me to say nothing next time? And when I come across you all still speculating whether it even exists, maybe I should just let you keep speculating.

    As I said on Brickset, it's probably about 28 - 30 studs long, from what I saw. It's instantly recognisable, and looked to be a decent representation.

    Tell me a set number and I'll check! I'm not too familiar with Star Wars sets I'm afraid! EDIT: If it's #8097 then the one in CC is smaller. Open like the DS. Yeah, that was me a day or two ago. :)

    No, not guesswork, I've seen a photo. I can't say how or where, but everything I said is from what I saw.

    It's definitely Cloud City, and it's definitely a playset along the lines of the Death Star. It's not like Assault on Hoth. In fact, chop the bottom off the Death Star, then add a few platforms and a ship or two (hello, 28-30 stud long Slave 1), and you're pretty much there.
  8. GBC General Discussion

    I'm afraid not, I've no plans to travel abroad with my GBCs. Sorry!
  9. GBC General Discussion

    I've really got into GBCs over the past four or five months, and whilst I haven't actually displayed any modules yet, Huw (of Brickset fame) and I are going to do collaborative displays at both Bricktastic in Manchester (June/July), and at The Great Western Brick Show in Swindon (October). I currently have twelve modules, and here's a couple of videos of most of them. Any questions, just ask. They all seem fairly reliable, but I guess I'll only see how reliable once they've been running for a full day at a show!
  10. Okay, help me with PF train motors

    Is it possible that those which have had some running are faster, because they've been 'run in' and have a bit less friction?
  11. 0-8-0 Tank locomotive

    Well that's a good job then, given that it can't actually be built.
  12. I don't know how many factories there were then, or where they were, but these days there's factories in Denmark, Hungary, Mexico, China, and I think there might be one in the Czech Republic as well.
  13. Perhaps that was just the crossover year? Maybe one factory started making type 4 before the other?
  14. I think he needs the top photos showing the other end, to distinguish the number/type of holes on the top! :)
  15. 0-8-0 Tank locomotive

    Very nice, but there's quite a few parts on there that simply aren't available in those colours.
