  1. Past hour
  2. When I was first watching reviews, I wasn't watching it to know whether the set is good or bad, but rather, I watched them to see what are the set's functions/play features. But I can't help but notice that nowdays fewer and fewer sets have those. Other than basic things such as stud shooters or spring loaded shooters, I barely see sets having functions. When I was a younger, I was very obsesed with functions. I watched whole reviews just to see what are the set's functions. But almost every time I watch a review now, I barely see any functions to the sets besides, of course of the simple ones I mentioned above. Even the bigger sets feature few (if any) of them. I know that most AFOLs don't care about them because they care more about displaying their sets rather than playing with then, but still, they used to be a important part of the sets that added a lot more play value for the kids. Does anyone know what happened?

  6. Many many thanks on your reply, I’ll put the red gear, however the red differential casing doesn’t look to “firm” a third gear.. Did I mis-install or uncorrectly install the red differential casing? Best Regards, Idris

    Percentile system for which mechanics? Combat? Skill checks? Everything? Call of Cthulhu has an interesting percentile system which may be worth looking into if that's the direction we want to take this.

    Why the upper age limit???

    I totally agree with you, I am 41, single (but I always keep the small kids away if any comes for choking hazards) and I am a CPA working with almost 100 clients... In my “brain-washing/cooling” time, I buy a LEGO Technic kit and even sometimes I buy two of the same to assemble two different models of the same kit, without dissassembling the other... That’s “love”. I always applaud LEGO for the adults themselves to have a wonderful time, especially with Technic... In my opinion, Technic is the only “3D Assembly toy concept” in the world, which make adults have real fun, brain-work and relaxation with patience... Best Regards, Idris PS: No person can vanish the love for LEGO Technic!

    Why the upper age limit???

    Dear TechnicRCRacer, I believe it does for kids, ranging from one age to other, because LEGO uses professionals for their toys. For example, there can be no choking hazard for kids being more than 5-7 years old... For Technic, I again underline that there should be a lower age limit but over that, in my opinion is useless because the love for LEGO should not be limited, what’s more people, say 50 years old should not feel as a “retard” by others if the box says the toy is for kids between; say, 11-16 years of age... In my view this statement pushes the thought that a 25-year old young lady or a 60-year old gentleman would be seen “weird”, if they buy and assembly a Technic, by others... I love Technic and I will buy the Mack Truck tomorrow and I am 41 years-old, I am well over 16 and I do not have a “choking hazard risk”, lol... Best Regards, Idris Lol! Beautiful message! Many thanks!

    Just don't be surprised when the Lego Secret Police kick in your door. Those guys mean business!

    Why the upper age limit???

    Dear dr_spock, I do not think there is anything to ignore at my risk if I am over the lower-age-limit as given to LEGO by pedagogs and psychologists etc. I think there can be no liabilities ever to LEGO, especially for Technic for people well over the age of 40-50-60 and up to 150 (God knows) to even rehabilitate or entertain their minds thus “brain joy” Best Regards, Idris

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Same, I have it on my shelf in the living room and I just havent been in a rush to put it into my layout. I'm even tempted to put Brick Bank up with it as an opposite corner. CG may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I think it's a lovely set. I enjoyed the build and new techniques, and I like looking at it.
  16. Yes I am nitpicking what he said. What else should I be doing? He can assume all he likes. But that's not what he said. What he said was what earnt my vote. h-I will confine my speech h-impediment to fluffy statements to save h-your small brain. Sure. Intercouse discussion. Objection sustained. I withdraw my statement. The jury is to disregard.

    Lego Stores...

    Thanks for the heads up! Very interesting! I'm doing something similar, but with other LEGO Retailer items as well... I have expanding my LEGO computer desktop guide chapter on LEGO Retailers, retailer shop windows, retailer glued display items, LEGO display stands and signage, and LEGO retailer documentation... from the years 1949 to the present. This is for my Unofficial LEGO Sets/Parts Collectors Guide (2800 pages). Here are some of the interesting older LEGO retailer displays (before the time LEGO company stores came out)... 1955 Swedish (first year of LEGO in Sweden) sales kiosk in a department store in Göteburg Sweden... Copenhagen Goldschmidt & Chrome Departments Store LEGO window, December 1959.... USA Samsonite LEGO Window... Detroit J. L. Hudsons Department Store... 1961. LEGO display stand... from a LEGO retailer catalog page.... 1959. Samsonite LEGO model shop Detroit... 1962. USA LEGO Retailer promotion 1975... USA LEGO display... 1967... 1960 Odense Denmark LEGO display window....

    Heroica RPG 2.0

    I don't know if tying mechanics to faction alliances is a great thing to carry over from Heroica 1.0. While it helped to develop some character interaction with factions due to their faction accessibility, as a whole it seemed to more arbitrarily limit players or force their characters to go in a certain direction just because that was the only way someone could get a dragon. Sure factions can have perks, but tying important mechanics like classes or proficiencies, I think might be a little too much. I like the idea of a percentile system, the hard part is allowing for enough granularity so that there's enough of a spectrum for success, but not so much that the math becomes tedious.

    The Future of Lego Space. (opinions, ideas, discussion)

    Well I have to say from a Sci-Fi fan perspective this is the best Town and/or City Space(port) theme Lego has done. While I would love a follow up to Benny's Space Squad with the red, black, green, and undamaged blue classic space figs, that City Space figure pack is one awesome consolation prize. The orbital station is better than I would have ever guessed it could be too. I wish they would have just used the classic space logo recolored like they did in Mars Mission though. The new one has the curve going the wrong direction. Overall I am really looking forward to adding to my city spaceport. Because why have mere airplanes when you can have Spaceships!

    Book III - Avalonia: Guild sign-up and Discussion

    You are welcome! It seems, from my almost three years here, that there are really only five or so members truly active at any one time; who those five are will change, but most of the people on the Guild member list are either already gone from the guilds, are busy with other building, or just check back in every once in a while due to the busyness of life (*cough cough* @TitusV). Sad but true! At least Avalonia has been more active of late than the other guilds, I guess, if that is a positive. The next challenge should help. And summer probably will bring out some more builds, as people gear up with the Summer Joust and find ways to incorporate them into the guilds, or spend time back home from school, back with their collection of bricks. But who knows? I look forward to seeing those MOCs!

    Avalonia Mini-Challenge: Game of Thrones

    Emphasis on "old"!
  23. BAWK! Objection, Your Honour hold up, I'm the Honour around here. This Hippo is quite sneakily putting words into my mouth, so I shall find him in contempt of court! Or perhaps the mechanics of intercourse discussion? Why would Haydn be so touchy about a possible third party before someone confidently asserted the existence of such party? You folded fairly quickly there. Caldwell took a long time to come out and say "yeah I guess what Cleo said was a bit weird" after several other people (including this ~fabulous~ magistrate-about-town) had already commented on her statement. Per the terms of AFC3, I shall Vote: Brewer Bunny. BAWK!

    Why the upper age limit???

    They are there to provide guidance to the purchaser of what age range the product is suitable for. It is no different than juvenile and young adult books that have age ranges listed in the publisher's product catalogue. As per the LEGO Movie age limits on the box are merely a suggestion. As an adult you are free to ignore it at your own risk. They are probably there to cover any liability to the company.
