  1. I am loving the new pieces we are getting and their usefulness. The only problem is that I have to keep starting my MOCs again because there is a new part to make it better. As far as sets go, I generally only buy them for parts, though more often I just buy the parts I need. I sometimes build the sets but only ones that appeal to me. I see a much greater range of sets being released now, catering for different age groups and markets. The previous years were 5-6 sets a year topped with a flagship the equivalent of the midsize sets now released, but we have bigger sets also available for those who want more. We have the sets now also which are aimed at other markets other than just technic fans with the licensed sets which are being marketed elsewhere like the Mack thru the Mack dealer network and the Porsche and Bugatti. Lego has always been to inspire people and that is why there are B models, sometimes great enough to be sets on their own, otherwise just to show that the set is not just one thing, it is a collection of parts to build whatever you want, not limited to someone else's imagination.
  2. Pretty sure the T600 I used to drive was a Cummins N14

    How many sets do you own?

    Currently have a lot more unbuilt models than I do built, I could probably build another 100 or so mocs but will most likely be one or two parts short for some of them. No matter how much you have there will always be some piece that you dont have, sometimes its the new piece that you didnt know you needed but it just got released in a new set and you need it now.

  9. Rough Terrain cranes usually steer independantly on each axle, front by the steering wheel and rear by a switch, not like a telehandler ;-)

    Ninjago airship and temple

    Thanks for that. I now have a few ideas for a figurehead after seeing the new Destiny's Bounty so will look at modifying it.

    8886 PF cable issue

    I have had similar problems with PF connections and also have resorted to slighly bending the contacts to fix the problem.
