    I love your loader more than I like the A model. I'm curious what it looks like with the 42030 bucket on it. I"ll probably build it once I get the set. out of curiosity, do you have a picture of leftover parts?

    which loader lifts more weight?

    Technic Model Comparison

    Wow, the two loaders side by side look great! I think I prefer the old loader as a model (especially since my son likes to play with it) but I love the details on the Zeux! I have the Claas wheels on my RC Volvo loader, and they look really good on it.

    I made a mistake on the bugatti set (positioned a beam wrong by one stud) and Had to disassemble hours of work in order to fix it. Haven't made a mistake like that since!

    Hey, at least this cycle isn't as bad as the Modular Building cycle "The current modular building is great!" "I bet the next one will be (insert unrealistic expectation here)" *"Fakes" get posted* "Wow, these really meet my expectations!" *pictures get leak* "There is no way that is the building because it isn't (insert unrealistic expectation here) *leak gets confirmed* Well this building is just terrible, there is no way I'm buying it. *set comes out* Well this building is terrible but I might as well buy it because I have all the other ones (Loop to beginning)

    Replace Rubberband Treads on 9V Train Motors

    I forget the exact size, but I just went to an auto store, showed them the rubber currently on the wheel, and asked for a similar size O ring. They provided me a small bag of them for a few bucks and they worked perfectly.

    I sincerely hope there is an entire new line of Power UP motors and a new battery box that gives multiple motors on single output

    I tell you what, you provide the mobile cranes, and I'll show you what I can do!

    I bet I could turn those mobile cranes into excavators!

    It's funny, I found that same picture after seeing this thread. With al lthose yellow things side by side it's hard to tell what's what. Also it looks like there was a huge size jump between the two mobile cranes.

    He can't build on his own yet but if I tell him to stick a pin in a hole, or attach a liftarm In a certain way, he's able to figure it out eventually. Him and I built the arocs recently and he did the entire "dumping" assembly by me showing him where to put parts. He can is the controls to make the crane arm move on it, but hasn't figured out what does what. He has also figures out how steering works on it. He likes to push it around and make the suspension bounce and put random toys in the bed of it. I still can't get him to walk though or say dada

    Is it weird that I'm not a huge fan of the 41999 Bugatti? I think it's a beautiful model and was a blast to build, but I feel like once it's done, you can't really do much with it. My 1 year old son and I built it (seriously, I showed him where to put pieces and he was able to do it. i'm really proud of him for that) and now it really just hangs on the wall. Sure you can shift gears, but you really can't see what it does or really any impact to the model itself, and the suspension is so soft you really can't "push" it on the floor without the bottom scraping. My son really enjoyed making the spoiler go up and down though and opening and closing the doors.

    Mindstorms General Discussion

    What is the scope of everything you can do with Mindstorm? Professionally I'm a software engineer, and would love to make smart creations. For instance, could I create an excavator with a claw arm that goes around, picking up red objects and putting them into a red bucket, blue objects into a blue bucket, etc? Make it so if an object is too heavy, or if it can't grip said object, then it will ignore it in move on?

    I too am trying to hunt down sets before prices skyrocket as well. I was lucky to find the Arocs at MSRP still at walmart.com. I was able to get the old RC Volvo loader used for about 170 as well. I think if i can get the old RC excavator, Heavy lift copter and mobile crane MII as well, I'll be good for older sets. Then I can move onto the mac anthem, 6x6 tow truck, AT Crane
