    recently bought another 3000 pins due to always running out.

    [REVIEW] 42114 - Volvo Articulated Hauler

    Maybe its time for us old farts to embrace technology and get on board with it. Whilst this would be a great model with power functions it does truly showcase the possibilities for the control plus system, it truly can enhance the Technic system. I just need to learn more about programming the app and controllers, as I would love to add automatic gearboxes like this into some MOCs.

    42113 Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey

    I think we are just lucky with the parts count, I believe they try to fit sets into price groups, and this year we have a few with better parts counts than normal. It would be nice if it was a trend though.

    Technic 2020 Set Discussion

    I only build a few sets, most of the ones I buy are kept in the box and resold later when someone wants one, the odd one is built but modified like the LR with the hub and motors from the crawler, otherwise I am just looking for the new parts to add to my collection for building MOCs, either from BL or Bricks and Pieces.

    Linear Actuators VS Pneumatics

    amazing, it was almost two years since this thread was posted in.
  6. I believe the powered up app is now customizable to build custom controllers, rather than the control plus app. Unfortunately I haven't gotten it to work on my current phone.
  7. This one I built for a friend, I hope to build my own in the next week or so.
  8. Correct, NZ is RHD so changed it over. I had made the mistake of mirroring the engine also but have changed it back.

    Yes I was, trucks were there as well as some other exhibitors didn't turn up so filled their tables.

    Having issues with my Lego Roller Coaster

    I have replaced the wheels several times and replaced the bodies, some of my original bodies also have started jumping off the track due to the side lug that holds them on being worn. The tracks also need regular cleaning. still haven't found a fixall solution. Mine is about 3x the original size with two climbs and gets used at shows.

    What happened to Bricks & Pieces?

    I have been having the same problem since the B+P went back on, I usually order every couple of weeks but now it wont process payment at all, been trying for 4 days.

    Questions about 8285 tow truck

    I use Chrome Block City on Bricklink. Auri has been great, haven't had any problems, unlike some of the other stores whose bricks broke trying to fit them together.

    Questions about 8285 tow truck

    Early sets had 10 metallic silver wheels, then some had six silver and 4 BG, then they had all BG. I had some of each, all bought at Kmart around the same time. Yes to the two different types of axle joiner, this was at the time the smooth one was being released so many got those. Also the pin joiner with slot appeared in some of these sets.
