  1. Historic themes have their own lovely thread all about sharing cool parts and sets that can be adopted and adapted to fit their theme. So here we are with our own thread. Ready to supply any budding adventurer! This thread is for sharing about parts, prints and sets that are currently available from 2021 onwards. (Of course if the thread lasts a long time, some sets and parts/prints might be retired in future). Any and all themes can be the source of useful parts and even sets that supply our thirst for Adventure! Build a Minifig, Pick a Brick and Bricks and Pieces tips are welcome. Remember: Adventure is out there!
  2. Hi, guys! I know that, there is February yet and we're before March release, but let's start new topic! So, at first I want to say that 2023 wave is amazing. New brand, new mudguards, new windscreens! Whoah! And there are my speculation/cars I want to see in Speed Champions 2024: ~ Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport 25 ~ Porsche Taycan ~ Audi e-tron GT ~ BMW M6 ~ BMW M4 GT3 & BMW M3 1991 ~ Ferrari 499p LMH ~ Ford Focus RS 2021 ~ Honda Civic Type R ~ Cadillac LMDH What do you think about my cars? What cars would you like to see? Show your speculation/wishlist.
  3. About The idea represents ball-and-stick models of molecules using LEGO bricks. Atoms are made of cubes with technic holes. Bonds are made using soft axles. Many chemical compounds can be easily and quickly created by connecting and disconnecting atoms. To represent valence electrons and bond abilities, the hydrogen atom has one connection point (one technic hole), oxygen has two, etc. Soft axles enable the creation of complex compounds with angled, double, or even triple bonds. Many variations can be made by applying different stickers to the top tiles of atoms. For a set, I have selected 80 atoms and an adequate number of bonds, for a total of 742 LEGO bricks. I have already successfully used this system to show my kids the difference between atoms, molecules, and various compounds. What you can see on the images All molecules in the proposed set. Selection of gases: ammonia, nitrogen molecule, carbon dioxide, oxygen molecule, and hydrogen molecule. Molecules of liquids: sulfuric acid, water, chloroform. Organic compounds: methane, ethane, methanol, ethanol, and benzene. Solid matter: a unit cell of silicon dioxide. Overview of atoms. Two versions are presented: the top one has only simple chemical symbols. The bottom one also shows the proton number and oxidation state. Photo of my real build of molecules. System The idea is the system. One can take only a few bricks and switch top tiles with stickers, or one can build a whole periodic table of elements. However, for most molecules, one needs multiple hydrogens, but helium is not used at all (because it does not create molecules under normal conditions). Changing bonds is very quick, so one can also demonstrate chemical reactions. Two possibilities For myself, I have used simple paper stickers with a chemical symbol, proton number, and oxidation state. The oxidation state was quite easy to explain; kids understood that the number of 'holes' in the element is relevant to the number of 'bonds' the element can make. Sulphur is good to show that oxidation states can differ. The atomic number was perfect for explaining why CO2 falls down to bottom in a standard atmosphere made mostly of lighter nitrogen molecules. The other possibility is to make stickers with only chemical symbols, as shown in most images. Because I had issues uploading images to the Lego ideas, I used it for most images. There is some rule that texts have to be readable, and in the first image, that was the only way to make all texts readable. Why Kids were asking about atoms/molecules/matter etc. So I thought I will find some nice chemistry system using lego and explain the topic. I have found several chemistry Lego systems or ideas, yet all seemed quite complex or too abstract. So I tried to think about something more easy to understand, and easy to build.

  4. Flameo my fellow Avatar fans, I’m a huge fan of ATLA and I need your help. Recently I have submitted a project on LEGO IDEAS, it's the Spirit Oasis from Avatar: The Last Airbender. As you might know LEGO IDEAS is a website which allows users to submit ideas for Lego products to be turned into potential sets. So If my project reaches 10.000 supporters it may become an official LEGO Product. Many Avatar Fans including me would love to purchase another LEGO ATLA Set since the original sets from 2006 are not available anymore. Check out my project: The Spirit Oasis Project on LEGO IDEAS All you need to do is press the support button and create a free LEGO Account if necessary. Thanks a lot, Every supporter counts!
  5. A revamped version with new elements from the latest LDD parts update! I especially like the SNOT portion of the roof's front section and the improved tail lights!
  6. Hi, I have sometimes found myself baffled by parts so I thought a topic for parts which have been "phased out" or "replaced" would be helpful Here are a couple examples of what I mean A completely changed design which upset a few fans of the older space themes. Old New A change to the base which no longer allows connection the old dragon/crocodiles mouth sized hole Old New There are more and I am currently researching and remembering the few I have noticed in the past few years. (If this topic is inappropriate or felt unneeded by any of the staff members feel free to contact me or take it down)
  7. I know that normal bricks are made of ABS plastic, but what about technic elements? I would assume that axles and beams are made from another material than ABS. Connectors, joiners etc. are probably ABS. But I also want to know what a "safe" temperature of the various elements are? I can't seem to find anything on google
