    Lack of original themes

    Some of the smaller Friends sets are like animal packs. 40264 was a quick way to get more bunnies for my bunny slope MOC last year.

    LEGO vs. Held der Steine

    It could be his logo design choices. The LEGO Group claims the basic brick and knobs are their trademarks. I suppose his IP lawyers can fight it out in court with the LEGO lawyers if he feels his logo is not infringing anything. The LEGO Group is also the owner of a whole range of additional trademarks, including the LEGO logo, the minifigure, the basic brick and the knobs. It is a common misunderstanding that the basic brick and the knobs are not protected as trademarks; even though they are not registered for construction toys, they are still registered for other toys and various other goods.

    The dice reader

    Clever. I thought of designing my own dice where one side is heavier and 3D printing it. This is a good way to see if it makes any difference.

    12v Train controller/transformer options? Aftermarket?

    If you have 12V AC-DC wall warts (power adapters) kicking around, you can get a $2 motor controller board from China. I used one to control the speed of a Power Function M-motor running a ski lift MOC. I think that's as cheap as it gets.

    Licensed Themes VS Original Themes

    Original themes. They don't have an IP licensing fee tax.

    [MOC] Powered Boxcar (Power Functions)

    Nice power car. It's kind of like those HEP (Head End Power) cars back in the early days of Amtrak and VIA Rail before they got all HEP equiped locomotives.

    Mega Construx "Train Heist"

    I believe Playmobil's trains are LGB G-scaled too. MegaBlocks may be going after that market.

    What was the last movie you watched?

    Spider-verse. Fun film. Stick around and watch the end credits.

    Classic Technic

    Great nostalgia trip.
  13. How about this all LEGO solution with PUP to get more battery life and power? You can also do things with Mindstorm to control multiple motors.

    Ideas for freight locomotive to complement 4559

    You could make it more like the Windhoff concept for transporting ISO shipping containers. (I think their concept eventually became the Windhoff Cargo Sprinter.) You could build some shipping containers from the Maesk train and see if it fits and MOD accordingly.
