    LEGO Hidden Side 2020

    Personally, I think this one is a lot better than the Scooby Doo one... so there's that.

    Problem: Gear Gets Pulled Out

    Well it's a flawed design. You should just redo it.

    gyro errors -

    Hi can anyone point me towards a reason why the program run is sometimes skipping over a gyro turn ? this appears to be random as if i run the program multiple times it will sometimes miss. or miss at different turns thanks
  5. Recently while testing for gear skipping in my EV3-powered torque heavy MOC sports car, I found this... The 5L (I believe) axle holding the half-gear I'm pointing at, which is clearly visible from the issue, moves out of the half-gear every time it skips. Indeed the axles with axle connectors connected to this gear have a "sliding axle" issue. I made a light fix by adding another axle connector, but I don't know if it will stop the sliding. Here above is the axle being pushed in... and pushed out to its maximum. Above is the issue: This piece my right finger is pointing at is in where my left points at, and it seems to wiggle enough to be the main cause of the sliding. However, I can't fix it because there is no place to reinforce the small piece. It seems from the pictures above with the axle sliding in and out that it will keep the half gear in place, but I don't know if it would under torque. Here's what happened to the last gear I had in here... completely chewed out by the axle. Have anybody else dealt with this? Some helpful feedback on this issue would be appreciated. Happy building.

    Imgur is also hassle-free (you don't need an account to upload, unlike Flickr).
  7. Both Jack’s cap/hood piece and Parker’s hair/hat piece have been reused in sets for 2020 (Ninjago and Chinese New Year, respectively), so a recoloured appearance of one of the new pieces in the CMF line is a reasonable possibility.
  8. Nanth'ri! Now there's a terrible place to end up. The system sits at the junction of the Nanth'ri Route and the Trax Tube. And considering it is less than a parsec away from Daalang, we couldn't just leave it in the hands of pirates now could we? I started my work there by building on the information ascertained from the criminal Jol Dixun by Commander Storr's investigation. Dixun had been associated with the Mordageen mercenaries used by the pirates to guard their holdings around their base in Mott City on Nanth'ri Prime. Their leader was one Ramara Till. She was a greasy old character, but just the type I could do business with. I explained to her that the Triumvirate assault on Mott City was a matter of inevitability, and that the pirates would be all but annihilated. But I also suggested that any parties who helped us win the battle would be spared, and might even be allowed to stay planetside; benefiting from the renewed civilisation that we would bring. Well, she saw sense in that, but wasn't about to make a deal without guarantees. I left her with my personal collection of antique firearms to act as deposit for the duration of the invasion (not, I'm afraid to say, the first or last time that I have pawned them). In return she gave her best slave as hostage; a Twilek called Lu'vel. I had no conceit that this would prevent her from betraying us if they saw a better opportunity, but I was confident that it would be enough to convince them that we meant business. Her people were guarding the Mott City spaceport. They agreed to disable all docked ships at the critical hour, and prevent the pirates from accessing the port. This would help us nullify any aerial power they might have, and give our bombers free reign to attack Mott City.

    I was very happy when seeing the pictures on the catalog and still I am now.

    Market may be saturated but when PR is sold out the second market will be way overpriced.

    LEGO Star Wars 2020 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!!!

    The choice to make a new character, rather than just using IG-88, was intentional. Quote from Dave Filoni: “So a droid like IG-88, if you know the Expanded Universe and the Star Wars history, there are a lot of stories around him or what might've happened to that particular droid. So out of respect for people that have been with this franchise a long time, it's like, 'well if we do something with this space, would that be contradicting those stories?'. . . So it's better just to say, 'Well, there's other droids,' it's not like it was a unique assassin droid. And then we have a little more free range.” From the first post:

    Marvel Superheroes 2019 - Rumours, Speculation & Discussion

    I just took another look and while I like to try to be positive, it’s really not great, is it? Most of it is a Hulk hole. And I think he’s got a Space Stone or three anyway, why does he need the ghost of Black Widow to drive him around at all? As sets with ‘rescue’ and ‘helicopter’ in the name go, it’s not a patch on this one. It doesn’t even have a working siren! https://brickset.com/sets/6482-1/Rescue-Helicopter

    Disappointing. I was hoping the Fair would be decent but am turned away. The lightjouse looks to be a solid build but practically the same one from Scooby Doo. I'll likely buy the tree portal for my forest. Not convinced yet on Ghost Fair.

    (Moc) Narrow Gauge 4-6-0

    With 3d printing, pretty much any gauge is now possible. Plus, I expect my models are more likely to end up on a mantle than a loop at some club.

    I'm extremely disappointed with the next wave overall. Only the portal set looks good as a whole, though I may get some lose figures from some of the other sets. The clowns look fun.

    Colorful and creative build. I particularly like the raised beds and that arched gateway.

    [M10 - Fedalle - TCR] Becoming Stormtroopers again

    Great job @Gubi0222! You absolutely squeeze the maximum out of a relatively simple scene, packed with goodies and nice little details... I really like the continuation of the collaboration with the Triumvirate, and really nice use of the Patrol Trooper. Cheers!

    A little blocky perhaps but "brought to life" with all the descriptions and accompanying scenes.

    Thanks! I thought that about removing the colour wheel app thingie and if your estimate is correct, I’ll have to as I’m a few mm off as it stands.

    you do know the Urus does 0-60 mph in ~3.5 seconds, right?

    The Portal set is fantastic. LEGO has been doing really well with designing $20-30 sets to be decent builds and a nice selection of figures. The plane is also very well done. The light house is the Scooby Doo set redone. :) I'm curious to what the next wave / more expensive set will be.

    Matoro from Bionicle. In the Bionicle story, he sacrificed himself in order to save Mata Nui and his friends, and to this day, his sacrifice is considered one of the pivotal moments of the Bionicle story line.

    LEGO City 2020 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    LEGO revealed Hidden Side because it's a new theme and they want to drum up the talk about it. Makes complete sense. What I find interesting is it's two weeks before Thanksgiving USA and for the last 15 years LEGO has release 3-5 of the following year's City sets at the end of November. So I guess that's ending as they would have to put the pages on S@H.
  27. @Corydoras That is a very delightful dock. I'm sorry for ruffling your feathers.
