  1. So it’s more ‘DollarBricks’ for you then? That’s nice to know...;)
  2. That’s something to consider, indeed. But looking at it, the distance between two black pins which are attached to the boom and the black pin attached to the LA seems bigger than one stud/hole. So it doesn’t look like a standard T-beam (which aren’t available in red I thought anyway)...
  3. Yes I see, lol. But, how do you know there’s an optical illusion? All other things seem quite in proportion to me.
  4. How would that not make sense? They’re pretty big parts. And the sticker on the boom is (almost) square. This fits perfectly on the center part of a 5x11 panel, and definitely not on a 3x11 panel. Which IMO adds another reason to believe the dog bones must be 3x7.
  5. Maybe not, but I don't suppose they make such a big box for nothing but air...
  6. Well, it has Unimog tires, a lot of red/black panels and a lot of additional LBG panels and beams, with which you seem to be able to construct some kind of house...
  7. My first impression: 42079: TLG has been long overdue to release a proper forklift, IMO. This one is small, and for that reason probably not very detailed. But if functions are well executed, it might be worth getting. 42080: looks a bit of a mess, color-wise. But a lot of pneumatic hoses and impressieve saw-blade! 42081: I don't quite understand the point of getting this if you already have 42030. Kind of strange/futuristic looking shovel. 42082: really 855 on steroids: very big and red! Looks like it can reach a very impressive height!
  8. Looking at the tires and length of the boom shaft (at least 4x11 studs) I think 42082 might be a lot bigger than it seems. And also a lot higher...

    Nice teaser! Bet you’ve got some more pics!
  10. [REVIEW] 75192 - Millennium Falcon

    Hi Jim, Thanks for this incredible review, which is a joy to read and to watch. The interactiveness contributes much to the reading pleasure, bringing some diversion to a very (very) longread! Which a very (very) big set like this obviously deserves... Since my wife will probably veto me getting hold of this one, it's easy for me to decide what to sell to get it anyway...
  11. Impossible LEGO

    My main point, in fact. I got it out myself with help from a potato knife with very thin blade, which hooks behind the stop of the 4L axle with stop. But the construction shouldn't have been in the instructions in the first place.
  12. Impossible LEGO

    Just found out that 42070-B is lacking in another, more unexpexting way. The construction as built in steps 106-107 is impossible to undo by normal means. Don't know if there are more official models which are impossible to break down, at least I haven't seen this before. Another good reason to reconsider building it... https://flic.kr/p/XZa44A https://flic.kr/p/YnHKxX (hope I got the pics right, I'm quite a noob with flickr)
  13. You're right there. I should have used some more words to express that I don't really mind the rather unfinished look, and that I like most of the outside coloring and shaping. Even my wife was impressed by the thing! (Not an "argument", I know...😉) I won't really argue about the design with you, since that's your forte (and totally not mine), but somehow it seems functional. Random as it may seem. Regarding the B-model: probably the first one since 8275 which I won't bother building. One hypothesis/hope/longshot could be that something spectacular WAS being created, but passed a deadline. And that Uwe was asked to quickly design a set that could pass as flagship.
  14. I think you're misreading some matters, as I already mentioned the MSRP is outrageous by any standards. My opinion regarded playability, not pricing, which you totally ignore, just like the comparison with other big sets I mentioned. Furthermore I don't think I was really presenting an argument, just an observation which lead to an opinion about playability. Nothing illogical about that if you ask me, but feel free to present the opinion of a bunch of other kids who disagree.
  15. You seem to reject any argument which doesn't support your thoughts on 42070. I assume you built it yourself to solidify your opinion?
