Two Questions: Would you consider this a proper building technique for MOC building? Would LEGO consider this a legal building technique? My Thoughts: I am personally hesitant to use this in a build as it feels wrong to have the small sprong sticking out of the bottom. Also because it's so thin there are strain concerns. However connectivity-wise, the stud hubs are the full .6 stud size and not chopped at the corners like almost all 2x2 circular plates' studs (4032, 2654, even 2655) which allows connecting at all four corners (as shown above). It's dimension make it unique. Excluding the middle sprong which runs .25 studs long with a width of .4, it provides a flat .1 stud thick platform with connecting studs on top. Also it has a .8 stud diameter with potential for positioning a connected piece .4 studs onto a flat surface. There is the argument that 3679 and 3680 are meant as one piece and shouldn't be used independently. In most sets today though they are packaged individually and connected later. I don't have an issue with using 3680 independently as it feels about as strong as a normal tile piece. However, 3679 just feels so flimsy when you hold it (though it is quite strong for it's thickness) plus it wasn't designed initially to function as an inverted connector. Conclusion: I'm still hesitant to, but because of the unique uses it proposes I'm leaning towards using 3679 in my building but mostly just for small bearing decoration uses. Since 3679 and 3680 are sold disconnected one could argue LEGO would be okay with the above use, but I would still guess they would say it is illegal. I'd be interested in hearing if anyone knows of a official LEGO set where either 3679 or 3680 are used independently without the other present.
Hey all, a lot of us are a big fan of the Lego Modulars. I also noticed a lot of stunning MoC's on this forum already. One thing we don't see very often though (both from Lego or in Mocs), is modulars with an inverted/inverse corner (270° instead of 90°). I would love to see more of those, as it would be nice for once to be able to redirect our modular streets in another angle. Browsing the web for inspiration only gave me one or two pics (as below) . Are there people on this forum that already created Moc or Mod in this way? Would you be willing to share some of them? It would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance

Some facts: - 5 cart inverted roller coaster train - 10 minifigures per train - 4 person staff - Half corkscrew followed by a half loop (is this called a Diving loop? Reply in the comments!) - Total heigth: - Track: 79 studs - Overall: 95 studs - Track length of the track (measured from the middle of the track): 655,5 studs - Built on 4x2 baseplates (128x64 studs) - Powered by 1 Mindstorms NXT unit - 3 NXT servo motors - 3 NXT sensors: 2 touch and 1 color More pictures are available at flickr. Hope you like it! Want LEGO to make some sort of roller coaster set? Support here: http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/2201 I know there's a different roller coaster on the picture, but it's about SOME SORT of Lego roller coaster. If this reaches 10000 votes, LEGO will consider making a design themselves, and then produce it so you can buy it in your local store!
