Limited Edition Welsh Icons in Lego
leafan posted a topic in Special LEGO ThemesI've just stumbled across this article regarding a recent sale of limited edition Lego minifigures of famous Welsh icons. Seems we're all too late though... Are these official Lego though? It seemed vague on that. I guess scalpers will be happy if they are. There is also this article with some more pictures...
Quite some time ago I entered my Porsche 914 on this forum, on which I got much appreciated comments. It took a lot of time to implement proposed changes and netxt, getting hands on the bricks needed. It's done however, just in time to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the model, first appearing in 1969. I took the liberty to built one of the Limited Edition variants of 1974, the so called Creamsicle. Overall proportions are improved, this model can be converted into all variants that have been made of the 914, including the 914-GT, 914-8 and the 916. Like the first model this one has: Porsche suspension in the front, cheating the torsion springs by real springs hidden under the chassis, Working Ackermann steering, Working headlights, single but also dual headlights as once used on one of the two 914-8's fit, A working gearbox, but with only 2 gear ratios Fully adjustable seats but I've built an eualy interior as well in which the passengers seat is fixed while the drivers' seat is reclining, An engine bay, accessible through the glove box, with a flat 4, 6 or 8 cylinder engine, battery and a blower used to help getting the cabin heated, And next to the engine lid, the doors, and both trunk lids can be opened. Somehow I can't insert more photos but there's more on my Flickr account Porsche 914 Creamsicle. Looking forward for your comments and/or replies, hope you enjoy this model Kind regards, Wilbert

REVIEW: 21021 Marina Bay Sands
WhiteFang posted a topic in Special LEGO ThemesHello everyone, What is this mysterious LEGO Architecture package? Read on to find out! Revealing the latest 21021 Marina Bay Sands Architecture Set I am really very pleased to bring this exclusive new review to our Eurobricks Community. Special thanks to The LEGO Group (TLG) and Eurobricks Staff/LEGO Ambassador, CopMike for facilitating and giving me this exclusive opportunity to review this superb new LEGO Architecture set! Before I was given this chance to review, I was determined to buy this set as soon as it is available locally, so I can also do a review of this new iconic architecture that is the first international feature of my country, Singapore. Without further ado, let's bring you a tour of this newly acclaimed building structure. Before I begin in proper, some of you is wondering why the first two opening images look particularly unique as compared with the mainstream release. It is because this is a special edition for very special release for publicity purpose and it will not be available at retail front. The content is the same but the packaging is very different. Other than that, the main focus is the LEGO set itself. Name: 21021 Marina Bay Sands (Republic of Singapore) Theme: LEGO Model Making / Architecture Year: 2014 Pieces: 602 Minifigs: 0 minifigure Price: USD N.A, GBP N.A, EURO N.A, SGD $89.90 Resources: Brickset, BrickLink An original box image of the 21021 Marina Bay Sands (Republic of Singapore) Back view of the original box image of the 21021 Marina Bay Sands (Republic of Singapore) By seeing the front and back of this box image, has certainly impressed me very much. The packaging for the LEGO Architecture products is very remarkable and is of the usual high standard that we have seen earlier. There are lots of details that can be found in the front and back. At one easy glance, you could have realised that this building, Marina Bay Sands is designed by the famous architect, Moshe Safdie. The box even reflect his signature. This iconic building landmark is designed by the LEGO Architectural Artist, Rok Zagalin Kobe. His name can be found at the front of the box, located at the bottom left hand corner. In this image, you will be able to view a very brief description touching on the Marina Bay Sands. Different side view of the original box image of the 21021, Image 1 Different side view of the original box image of the 21021, Image 2 Different side view of the original box image of the 21021, Image 3 Different side view of the original box image of the 21021, Image 4 The very first Singapore Landmark which is being featured by The LEGO Architecture Product Line The Marina Bay Sands is a state of the art modern day marvel, even with its bricks built design. Through the LEGO Architecture Series, TLG has officially iconise the first ever Singapore building landmark into the world of LEGO, which I am very proud to associate with. As you may have recall that there was a poll even though the poll link seem to be in non-existence, conducted by TLG, one of the choices was the Marina Bay Sands and I was very pleased that the choice that I have voted for, has actualised into a formal product offering in this series later this year. I was thrilled and elated by the results in early February 2013, when news that the Marina Bay Sands won the poll. The Marina Bay Sands is a model of a Singapore recent new landmark. The building is a hotel by itself, and is an integral part of the beautiful Singapore's city skyline which is mesmerising at day and night. The LEGO building model focuses on the signature hotel complex that showcases the three tall towers and the rooftop Sands Skypark. The building dimensions for the LEGO building model is measured at 224mm length and 136mm height. The official information for the Marina Bay Sands is as followed, first opened in 2010, the Marina Bay Sands is the leading business, leisure and entertainment destination in Asia. It features large and flexible convention and exhibition facilities, 2560 hotel rooms and suites, casino (one of its two in Singapore), the rooftop Sands Skypark, shopping mall, celebrity chief restaurants and an outdoor event plaza. Its two theatres showcase a range of leading entertainment performances including world-renowned Broadway shows. Completing the line-up of attractions is ArtScience Museum at Marina Bay Sands which play hosts to permanent and marquee exhibitions. You may visit the official website for more information. This 21021 Marina Bay Sands is marketed as Limited Edition. From my understanding, there is only 10,000 sets produced and is rumoured only to be exclusive for sales in Singapore. As of now, I can tell you that all of the local toy retailers and even the Marina Bay Sands gift shop is currently out of stock. Apparently, the first shipment had been wipe cleaned off the shelves and I am glad to manage to be able to grab a few before it is totally out of stock. I do believe that there will be a second shipment but I am not sure how or when it will ever appear again. Because I don't believe that all 10,000 sets had been wiped clean in Singapore 'for good' in this single shipment within less than two weeks of retail sales. I really hope there will be more stock appearing, because it will be a huge disappointment for many LEGO Architecture fans especially to our international friends. I also heard that the set is available in Hong Kong, and perhaps in other parts of Asia as well. I sure look forward to see more of these sets appearing in other places, than Singapore. Enjoy your building experience There is lots of hype and anticipation when I opened this! It look as if the packaging is communicating with me and it is definitely effective, when it convey such a simple message across to my mind. I will certainly enjoy this building experience that I have been waiting for. The content of the sealed box Within the sealed box, it comes with five packages and a beautiful instruction manual to build up the set. It also come with a single promotional leaflet which feature the recent LEGO Architecture highlights and a survey request by TLG. I will encourage you to do your part and send your feedback to this survey if you happen to buy the LEGO Architecture series. I am sure the LEGO Architecture design team is keen to find out your thoughts on your latest purchase. The construction materials As you can see from above, it is a good assortment of white and transparent blue bricks that form the main building structure, while the dark and light grey form the building foundation. Let's see how this building transform itself in LEGO bricks. I like the part, that the Marina Bay Sands is feature as a printed tile which is shown in the next image. The beginning of the construction of Marina Bay Sands Laying the building foundation The various dark grey flat tiles, mainly 2x4 size, are placed in a systematic manner that laid the foundation of this building structure. Front view of a single tower This building component form the main structure of a single tower. We will be repeating these steps for the other two towers as well and combined them shortly. As of now, it only show the half-completed tower of the front building. As you rotate to the back, you will see many of these white grids. These are the illustration of the hotel rooms balconies. The bottom of the walkway of the building show the connection of the base from one end to another. Back view of a single tower All of the three towers together ready to be constructed This is the back view of the building structure which depict the hotel rooms There are individual supporting layers within each towers We also need to create these three individual supporting layers that are meant to be placed within each towers to represent the different floors from within the towers. This is the design of the glass front of the building structure Now you add in the main design of the glass front onto the individual towers with numerous levels of transparent blue to show the glass levels accordingly. From the actual building design, I personally felt that this design is lacking of, is the gradual curves of the three towers. It is not as perfect as I hope it will be, but at one glance, people can still instantly recognise it as the Marina Bay Sands. Placing the glass windows onto the building front Building the top level of the building structure After completing the three towers, we will turn our attention to the top level that will be featuring the Sands Skypark and within the attraction, you will probably noticed the Infinity Swimming Pool from the top aerial view. It is amazing to swim in such a spectacular scenery which is 57 stories above ground floor and enjoying the Singapore's city skyline. Front view of the Marina Bay Sands Back view of the Marina Bay Sands Top view of the Marina Bay Sands This is the side entrance of the building It appears to be an exit shelter Black and White feature The base and the building structure can be removed as two distinct pieces Lining up the Marina Bay Sands building structure Some of the nice pictures of the real Marina Bay Sands The completed building can be kept safely into the original box At the end of the day by separating the two distinct pieces away, I will be able to keep this whole set nicely in the original nice packaging for storage. I wasn't feeling so well lately and I failed to take a good picture of the actual LEGO set with the scenery behind. I am planning to take a picture within the next few weeks! The weather was not very good lately due to the rainy season. Still, I will love to get an actual shot from my camera together with the completed built. I will keep all of you posted later on. To conclude, I am very pleased with this LEGO Architecture of the Marina Bay Sands. This deserved a very special place in my own collection, especially since this is my second LEGO Architecture set that I own, after the 21006 White House. I like how the designer capture the essence of this whole building design and present it in our favourite LEGO bricks. Even though the gradual curves are not captured perfectly for the three towers, but the overall appeal is very nicely done up and it made as a fine masterpiece to placed in a display cabinet. Not to mention, that I am proud to see a Singapore building landmark being made into my favourite toy hobby, LEGO and to showcase this icon to the global scene. I really wish to see more of other Singapore landmarks being able to capture in the LEGO Architecture series. Summary review Playability: 7/10 (LEGO Architecture sets can't played well with regular LEGO System sets because of the lack of the minifigures.) Design: 8.5/10 (The design is done up very nicely and it is almost perfect, minus the imperfection of the gradual curves for the towers.) Price: 7.5/10 (The set is a little pricey and furthermore with the 10,000 sets released worldwide, will expect the price to rose further in the secondary market.) Overall: 7.7/10 (Complete your LEGO Architecture series and don't give this set a miss, for Singapore fans, you ought to grab this iconic landmark by showing your support for it.) I gave it a "4" based on my Review Score Card. What about yours? I hope every one of you enjoyed reading this simple review of mine. Comments and Criticisms are strongly welcomed.

Why is 41999 NOT worth buying
peter_m posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingAs I am running out of money (bought 8110 and 9396 already in the past 3 months) I am trying to find any drawbacks of 41999 that will discourage me from getting one. I have found few: 1. Not so technically complex 2. Expensive (in Poland it will be ~$245 - S@H delivers it "for free" but shipping cost is already there, included in the price) 3. Parts in unique colors that will not easily blend with standard colors in order to build MOCs Anything else?
