    REQUEST Name Change HERE

    Fixed it for you. I have an underscore from webhandles I used a long time ago... But someone kindly engraved a brick badge with this name, underscore and all, so I kept it.

    REQUEST Name Change HERE

    It would be preferable to choose a name for your profile. If only so you remember it. I would update names, but the panel is not working for me currently

    Which forum does my MOC/topic belong in?

    Once a moc is posted, we can move the topic to another location, but it cannot be duplicated in another section.

    Could use help finding (an) old, old post(s)

    I have asked around a few friends who have been around and involved on EB, certainly active at the time. No answers just yet, but my staff access does let me into a few places I have not searched yet. I would say that Community and Buy Sell Trade could be locations to try.

    Could use help finding (an) old, old post(s)

    This one certainly is a really doozy. I would suggest using the filter search, EB doesn't archive things to the point of inaccessibility. The other option is to use Google to search the site. If you have a recollection of any names that would have been involved, you can search a members posts in the full search page. The only posts you would not be able to find would be those in staff sections/exclusive areas. I can try poking through them, but so far I have not pulled much up. (we need a chin scratch emoji) I have been knocking around a fair few years, but I cannot recall such a parts draft to know where to start!
  6. I don't think anything is archived in any completely inaccessible way. The search tool can be filtered to find certain content. I am not sure where to suggest looking though. I have been here a long old time now and cannot recall such a thing, which is probably not a great deal of help

    HELP! ! !

    When you are posting a reply or new thread, an Eyeball icon should be there in the rich text editor. If you click it, a spoiler box is inserted. The spoiler box posts as required.

    Why were some sets region specific?

    Tyco really did scare TLG in the US market. It has a noticeable feature in the brand museum in Billund and was a major lawsuit for TLG trying to wrest majority control of the Stud'n'Tube brick design. That court case was in fact the first official concession that TLG "borrowed" the Kiddicraft bricks for their own initial designs. Of course, since then it has been ruled that the functional design of the bricks cannot be held onto exclusively so TLG have turned their attention to Minifig instead. So yes, it would make sense that a few "premium" products would be US exclusive to make LEGO seem more appealing over competitors. Something Else that might interest you: Dino 2010 in Europe was Dino Attack in the US, with design changes and different storytelling. The 2010 "treatment" of the story was not popular/did not test well in the US, so they made it more gung-ho.

    Custom Rocket Racer themed t-shirt

    That is really cool. I too enjoy the character and it is super great that TLG have brought him back.

    Design quirks/hallmarks of 2006-2008 sets?

    I can only really suggest that the build style is a little more simplistic, there is more "basic" brick stacking instead of using hinges/clips and SNOT methods and as you mentioned, larger parts like a panel with a window instead of a brick created shape. There has been an influx of AFOLs into TLG over the last decade or so, who design with techniques developed outside of the demands of the company but can have them fit the ideals and principals of a set design. All I can suggest is checking out some older instructions and set photos and brace yourself for a lot of critical comments. That era of sets is still on the periphery of us AFOLs who use forums the most, a Dark Age start for some even. Though, I am feeling aged by your comment of growing up with them. Even though teenaged me was buying LEGO still (no dark age, I was and am a real nerd) so I know the sets and even have some of them, they were not part of my childhood LEGO. Heck, I joined the forum in 2008!

    Is It Possible To Reintroduce Old Sets?

    As a moderator, it is not a problem to have long posts. Forums are for long posts. This was not a long post, but I wish to assure you that long posts are a-OK.

    Is It Possible To Reintroduce Old Sets?

    Yes, yes they do. Take it from a terrible "clone brand" buyer of many years. Some parts won't separate, some brick brands are so loose a connection that they hardly stay together during a build, let alone play. Then you have the "quality" that causes a 2x16 plate to warp if you put a 2x4 brick onto the middle. LEGO are doing some things to count towards their premium status.
