  1. Might be a little round-about, but this is the first thing that came to my mind: 1. Export a CSV parts list from Studio 2. Since that contains the element ID, color, etc., it should be trivial to use those values in a spreadsheet to construct the URL for the image of the part in the correct color on a site like Bricklink. e.g. The standard URL format for the part image is:[COLOR_CODE]/[PART_NUMBER].png 3. Once you have the URL created, there are a number of tools and plugins that will pull the image directly into a cell in the spreadsheet, like this one: That wouldn't work for your custom parts, but would be quick to get the standard parts into the format you're talking about.

    How do I get this height offset?

    How small a space are we talking about here? Can you give an example- photo / illustration of where you need the 2.5 plates so we can see what there is to work with? There are some potential options depending on the available space under and adjacent to the spot in question. For instance, if there's room to work with to secure them, a brick is 2.5 plates wide and some brackets are 2.5 plates in one dimension, so if you can place either of those elements with the side stud facing up you end up with a flush, no-gaps stud facing in the same plane at 2.5 plates high.

    Highest piece count sets

    Bricklink has weights for many sets on the their main catalog page. See here for Titanic:{"iconly":0}

    Highest piece count sets

    Official sets by Lego-specified piece count here: As noted above, the mosaic has the most pieces, but if you look at piece count plus amount of plastic you get across those pieces, the largest set is the Titanic coming in at 14kg / 30.9lbs.

    Bit of a dilemma regarding a purchase I made...

    If it were me, I'd send the seller a message letting them know, and perhaps purchase the other minifig as well and even-out the price between them to what it should have been for both (maybe with a small discount since they won't need to pay for return shipping as well as sending the correct minifig, and it was their mistake). No extra hassle shipping the other one back to them if it's one you wanted anyway, and nobody is any worse off overall.

    [moc] Command & Conquer 3 Soviet Dreadnought

    Cool - clever use the the 2 ship hulls!
  7. This is great! You captured the look beautifully, even with the color choices. The front end came together nicely, and things like the curved slopes on the underside are subtle but really add to the look.

    Can you help me ?

    Lots of info about it out there- just search for "Lego Overwatch Influencer Kit" and you'll get there. I don't know if there's a good source for how many were made, but this is really just the outer box shown in your picture, an "exclusive" Tracer minifig (the guns are a different color not produced otherwise, but the minifig itself is not unique), and a regular copy of the 75973: D.Va & Reinhardt set. I personally wouldn't say the value is particularly high since only the outer box and the 2 drum lacquered gold gun elements are unique and there's likely not huge demand for that from enough people to push the value up.

    [MOC] 1948 Chevrolet Pickup Truck

    That's quite nice, and good choice of color as well. The front grill and rounding out the back of the cab really take the whole thing up a notch.

    Hi! I'm ScaredyCat

    Welcome to EB, ScaredyCat! Happy building (and sharing)!
  12. Came here to say the same thing. Not sure how many folks would want to buy specific Duplo pieces they way we do for System/Technic stuff, but there's definitely a market for it in general. I would suggest perhaps offering bricks in lots, and maybe even not taking the time to inventory by color if the demand isn't there. That is, offer 10x 2x4 bricks in a lot, sold as random colors, and decent but not necessarily pristine condition so you don't have to spend hardly any time on picking orders. Also, find what shipping box works for the Duplo dimensions so you can do that efficiently. Just my initial thought on it. Obviously you'd want to inventory minifigs and other more interesting parts individually and see if there's any interest in them, but I do think the highest demand would be for more "standard" bricks in quantity. For anything you don't want to sell that way, absolutely consider donating them or even throwing up a large mixed lot for a nominal price, plus shipping for someone who wants it vs trashing it!
  13. If you're on a Mac, just open the PDF in Preview, select the pages you want, and drag them to the desktop or a folder and it'll create a new PDF with just those pages. Or on any platform, if you can "print" or save to a PDF, just "print" for example pages 1-50 to a PDF and then 51-100 to another PDF. If you're wanting to do something more complex (pulling out submodels, adding directions or arrows, etc.) you'd need to do some of that by breaking down the model in Studio as mentioned above, and/or with a proper layout and editing program since PDFs aren't like Word docs and are meant to be more the final output.

    The Kings Great Hall

    Great build! I love that general column design every time I see it, but your floor and those windows are stand-out excellent.
