  1. Do you know exactly which parts you’ve added from your own collection? I’m thinking of making a Turbo Targa as well and want to order the extra needed parts 😊
  2. The B-Model from set 42030 was a Dump Truck, so maybe this'll be an updated version? From what I've read it contains Control+ elements, so probably three motors (moving, steering, movement of the container (can't think of the right word for it). Judging on it's presumed price of €250,-, I would say that this would be a reasonable assumption of motors and functions...

    Limited Technic Reviews

    Some 15 years ago I wrote a lot of reviews about hard- and software (not Lego related btw) and know how much time and effort goes into delivering a review that's easy to read, has explaining pictures and the information you want to know before buying the item. And with my reviews I didn't even had to put pieces together. I'm also one of those that prefers to read a review on a decent screen instead of scrolling through a review video on a mobile phone... I do view them, but only when a motorized set has something for me to see working. Please keep up your spirit about creating a review that fits your own standard! You're very good at Technic reviews and I always enjoyed reading them and regularly buying a set after reading your review. With one exception, the Land Rover 42100 review. I've read that before clicking the link to this topic and was surprised about the information, and in-depth quality (lack thereof). Now I understand and hope you'll find the inspiration to deliver some old fashioned good reviews in the future..!

    42100 Liebherr R9800 Excavator

    Bad experience? I've ordered a number of Lego sets over the years with Conrad, never had any problems and always delivered in the promised period... I do want the set, but as others also have said, I'll wait until a decent discount is available somewhere.

    New VIP system

    I do agree that having the VIP card in the Wallet on my phone is a positive thing, but that could have been accomplished with the old system as well I think. Furthermore, I've contacted Lego last week to give my opinion about this system. The reply that I got was more or less the same as what can be read in the Brickset post, but there was something that surprised me; the reply stated that if you want to use VIP points for an in-store purchase in another country, anóther step has to be added, because first your points need to be converted to the country you're in, then a voucher has to be made and after that you can use it. Also, they are aware of these issues, but the bottom line in the e-mail was "deal with it. It is here to stay."

    New VIP system

    There's an interesting article on Brickset with some answers from the 'VIP Director', the responses on that article say enough about the feelings on this new VIP system... We'll see how this new VIP system develops...
  7. What an amazing set! I like the fact that, from every angle, you can see and discover things, not just a great facade and dull rear, just like Ninjago City. I'm not a great fan of those movie products, but will buy this, just like I bought NC.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Who knows... maybe TLG decided to release the new modulair on the 31st of December. :-) that would offer an explanation as to why it isn’t on the January calendar... We’ll know more on monday!

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I know it's a long shot, but since Lego surprises us every year with a building that not a lot of people would have guessed, how about an 'inverted' corner building..? Sure, it would take a lot of space on the 32x32 baseplate, probably no back 'garden', but it sure would be nice and a big surprise. Can't wait until the next one is revealed!

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I sincerely hope not. I'm not really fond of re-releases and think there is a ton of building types we haven't seen (postoffice, police station, museum, what not). So: please don't Lego.

    [MOC] Ferrari Testarossa

    wow! That's one really beautiful Testarossa! I really like how you captured the doors with the blades, instantly recognizable!

    @kbalage Very nice video! Liked the comparison!
  15. Last year I bought the Brixo starter kit via Kickstarter. However, a lot of things came in between and I haven't had the time to start experimenting with it. And won't have in the foreseeable future I'm afraid.. So, I want to sell my Brixo starterkit. The starter kit is a lot like the Inventor kit ($99, see which is currently for sale, only with 68 parts instead of 78. The set is complete and brandnew; never used and never opened. Asking price is €50, plus P&P (I can ship anywhere in the world, contact me for shipping costs). If you have any questions, or want to see some pictures, just let me know
