    Powered Up - A tear down...

    I observed once the same behavior. I'm following with interest this topic, because I'm currently developing a Java-based solution for Powered-Up. I have already a working proof of concept. Thanks to @Mr Hobbles for the job regarding the PUP protocol.

    Pillaging and Liberating (Final)

    Lots of activities in this small part of village ! It's bad that the 6 pics limit doesn't allow to show all the details. However I like the way you did the smoke of the canon, and the brick-built bird too. There are of many other details, but lots of entries with lots of details, it's too difficult to comment everything !

    Finders Keepers, Loosers Bleeders (Final)

    Hum, too bloodish for me, but the micro BSB is so cute.

    *Finished* - The Pillaging of Neptune's Noggin Lagoon

    Very nice buildings with different building techniques, the "rockhead" is very well done and I like the way you made the pavements. This would be a very cute place for holidays, if those bad pirates were not present !

    Die for the King!

    Wow! The ship is really huge and full of nice "skeletal" details. The seamouth is quite horrific, I don't want be at the place of these poor soldiers But I think that a picture of your lovely beach/coast is missing in your selection pics, because you made a wonderful job on this too.

    We pillage, we plunder, we rifle and loot...

    It's not frequent to get a "moc by night", so you offer an original creation :) The light and fire effects are really well done. The un-straight harbor is also a nice touch. I like when the things are not always straight in LEGO. You also made a great selection of minifigs. Now what is missing is the music, the cries and laughters, and smell of a strange mix of rum and smoke

    Shark Attack!

    I really like the waves as it's a real improvement of the now traditional flat snotted sea. The use of the tails for the stairs is also a really nice idea. Well done !

  24. Hi every one, FreeLUG (the french LUG) organizes its fifth annual summer event. It will take place from the 13th to the 15th July 2007 in Auvergne near Clermont-Ferrand, center of France. You can find more informations about planned activities and location on the dedicated website : [en]. You are welcome to attend and feel free to drop me a line if you need more informations. ------------------------ Bonjour
  25. Hi, FreeLUG members were to the french Toy Fair. We wrote an article (in french) on our website Among the new sets, we can spotlight : the new electrical system with IR remote control, for the Technic bulldozer and the Creator Dino. The electrical plugs are a new system (neither the classical 2x2 nor the new NXT one). A remote control can control 2 motors at the same time, and has 4 different channels (so we can control 8 motors). There is an IR receiver, with also the 4 different channels. the StarWars line : the MTT is really impressive ! The new Jedi Kit Fisto : the castle line : the new arms of skeleton and weapons : Ferrari : the new Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano 1:10 Creator : a new truck EDIT : Due to heavy traffic, please use the following links : North America : Europe : Thanks to people who are mirroring the pictures.
