    What was the last movie you watched?

    Last night at my dad's place I watched Event Horizon (1997). Never seen it and although the effects are somewhat dated due to it being a 26 year old movie, it was good.
  2. I sincerely hate the current 2L axle/pinhole liftarms (+o) because of the change in plastic, cos the axlehole in the ones I have basically have no friction, they might as well be frictionless. I don't really mind the new pins, though I prefer to keep them separated from the old ones.
  3. The only options I can see for tree trunks fitting the size of this set would be - 98585 https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=98585#T=S&O={"iconly":0} - 6222 https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=6222#T=S&O={"iconly":0} The brick exists in brown, the connector only in dark orange as the closest. I checked with some of the 4x4 brick that I have and 4 bricks together are 5L long. Possible logs in adequate lengths made out of these would probably require a 16L axle with 16 connectors or 12-13 bricks, meaning 13-14 or 17 additional parts per log.
  4. If you mean what I think you mean, it's this, released in 2021: https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=77765#T=S&C=86&O={"color":86,"iconly":0}
  5. For accessibility, I think the pinholes could be facing down so the windshield could be removed upwards if need be, to make it easier. For the 2 pieces I linked, I have some of the first one and I use 2x of the "pin with pinhole" part inserted in the windshield and then attached to a liftarm with a 3L pin. I don't use any studded bricks in the front to hold it closed and I've only used it for a few SW-inspired fighters, but I would like to have more options that could be attached with pins which I personally prefer. In regards to the plastic and how the trans-clear panel appears to be kinda frosted, I have no idea why they did it that way. The windshield parts, even the ones that have pinholes, are clear and I can only assume it's a different type of plastic, maybe for strength reasons? But the trans-clear/colored liftarms were all made with clear plastic AFAIK and they should be sturdy enough... but maybe it's different since they are made thicked due to being liftarms.
  6. I wish TLG would update the mould of many of the windscreen pieces they've made and make more of them with pinholes to be "compatible" with technic pieces and models. As a fan of Star Wars and starships and a primary Technic builder I've gotten into doing starships with technic parts and although there are many windscreen/canopy type pieces, I feel like many more of them should be made with pinholes in the back, like these: https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=45705#T=C https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=41881#T=C Especially seeing as some of these bigger windshield pieces have a 1L thickness in the back regardless, I think they should be fitted with pinholes to make them more versatile.

    Thank you, I looked for it in every category I could think of, but wheel wasn't one of them.

    Excellent model of a really cool castle Out of curiousity, what's the ball shaped part in yellow/pearl gold used as a bowl in one of the interior rooms?

    Only in the second pic can I see, zoomed in, what looks like eyes inside the green helmet with the green feather. Other than that I can't see any sign of eyes and I can't see any place beyond the armors where he could hide. Nice and stylish scene though.
  10. Reportedly 7L alternating hole liftarm, as it seems to continue to the top of the wings which I've counted to be 7L.
  11. I just have to clarify that I was talking about the regular thick 2L axle/pinhole beams, not the thin ones, in case it wasn't clear I have the same experience as you with the half beams although I generally feel like the axleholes in those, of all variants, tend to crack too easily. I appreciate the stronger clutching power, but I'd rather have weaker clutch if it means the parts won't crack, though the axlehole clutch in the thick 2L beams are way too weak IMO.
  12. I too feel the difference in grip towards the weaker side in the pins as well as pins with pinhole, especially for the pin/pinhole parts it annoys me, but I've had these and the 3L blue pins crack over time and if this softer plastic can prevent cracking, I guess it's an aceptable trade-off even though I prefer stronger grip. I also feel the difference in grip depending on the liftarm color, the same pin can have noticeable difference in grip between e.g. LBG/DBG and black liftarms. The most annoying thing to me however is the significantly weaker grip in the axle holes of parts like the 2L axle/pinhole beams and the #1 connectors. The 2L beams feel like they'll almost slide off the axle...

    Really nice looking ship you got there This might seem like nitpicking, but I have to ask - is the listed number of guns correct? You say there's 52 in total which seems to match, of which 28 are 18lb longguns which I assume are the ones on the lower gun deck, but I count 13 on each side meaning it's 2 off + the list has 32 guns, so there's 20 that aren't mentioned. Only curiousity from my side + a bit OCD I'm afraid
  14. The option to the printed parts issue is including extra parts in the box so the customers can choose themselves whether to use the printed arches or not. It is a doable option cos I can't imagine wheel arches cost that much when they're mass produced that it would increase the set price. I'm eyeing this set for the new parts, I've developed a habit of rebuilding small car sets like this into Star Wars inspired starfighters and I can imagine some design details using the new small yellow panels.

    Digital alteration of actors' appearance should be limited to only necessary cases, like if they cast someone old(er) and they do a flashback to their younger self and need to make them look younger, or if they make a movie with a familiar character portrayed by an actor who has since passed away, like Tarkin in Rogue One. I'm not a fan of the thought of using CGI to recreate dead actors to fill roles in new movies. I assume you may have heard the rumors of doing this with James Dean to make his "4th movie" or whatever, which is a foolish reasoning because the actor is dead, so no matter how good the CGI would look, it's never going to be HIM in the role, just a CGI rendering that looks and sounds incredibly realistic. No, cast new actors, it's better to let new people get a chance than reusing by CGI old/dead actors just because.
