  1. Brings back a few memories, our first attempts at computing at high school were a Sinclair programmable calculator, a friend had a trs80 and then apple computers we started to learn on but mostly played games, Santa Peravia I believe it was called mostly. The RCX is what got me into Lego. I hope to get a computer that I built a few years ago running again, it has XP on it but the RCX can still be programmed with it, I had to replace the motherboard and graphics card after mice got into it, I have new ram sticks to put in it now to see if I can get it working. The biggest worry is my boot disk as the hard drives were striped and mirrored so won't be usable without the boot disk. It has been so long that I am not sure that I remember much of it now. Loving the work you are doing
  2. No, it needs a controller. The only simple battery box is the technic one.
  3. If you are mostly working with system bricks then the Batmobile powered up set 76112 had two m motors with studs and a AAA battery box like the trains. Might be a good set to start from.
  4. I wonder if this piece is used in the Lr13000 boom, it has possibilities for those sorts of uses.
  5. I am waiting for a parts order that was shipped two months ago to arrive. I used to use bricks and pieces instead of pick a brick as the shipping service is pitiful but now have no choice where to buy them. I have been buying much less since they changed the system.

  6. The bump steer occurs when the tie rods are not the same length and angle as the suspension arms.
  7. Liebherr crane is not 2022 any longer, possibly 2023, at least in NZ anyway.
  8. Factory colour is normally yellow superstructure and boom, white cab, grey undercarriage and counterweight
  9. Mine arrived on the 11th, was ordered on the 1st and shipped on the 9th. The bricks ordered at the same time arrived before the set.
  10. Ours usually only take a few days from Denmark to NZ, that's why I preferred to use bricks and pieces to pick a brick, shipping from Poland is slow and unreliable, I had several orders not arrive. Now they have combined them I have no choice in where to order from. Their tracking never works.
  11. I ordered some parts when I ordered the Ferrari on the 1st, the best seller parts shipped after 3 days, the Ferrari was only shipped on the 9th.
  12. I have had 2 missing orders of pick a brick, shipped from Poland but never arrived in New Zealand, eventually Lego did refund me though.
  13. My Bricks and Pieces order I placed on the 1st March included those and other new parts and I finally received it a couple of weeks ago, that order was placed before the system was changed. When I look back at the order on Lego.com the parts numbers are not shown on the order any longer, for any of the new parts, the 3 x 19 frames were about $4NZ each
  14. Internally it looks similar to the inline clutch
