Re: Matt's GBC module thread.

That's just cool. Are you able to switch out the car for a covered wagon, or does it become too heavy for the mechanism? One of these would look great:

Fake Websites

I've found this site advertised on my Facebook feed, but the prices are too good to be real. https://lego.3jiu.com/?fbclid=IwAR28nQK9BQFC0xfFio0Wty_Jm6yw5km_oC7clko4TcikBS_mxGmKj7ogGN4 I know the web address is suspect off the bat, but have any of you guys tried buying from any of these places?

Basic Brick Lots in Tubs - Peter

Hey guys. I picked up a lot a little while ago with some tubs and was wondering if anyone is interested in the following sets with their respective bins. I'm looking at the Bricklink prices, and they seem to be pretty high for these. All parts are included. I have 2x of 3759 - 35th Aniversary Tub. O...

They could be like the Monster Fighters vs. the Friends, or a Monster High kind of look.

Re: Classic TV Series Batcave - clearance deal

So Walmart seems to still have these in stock for $228. It's even decent for price for parts.

Star Wars Sets on Sale at amazon.ca

So, I'm not sure if these sets are very popular with people, but I thought they were worth picking up at these prices. There are other sales on at Amazon, but these were more than 30% off. 75180 Star Wars Rathtar Escape (CDN$ 58.25): https://www.amazon.ca/LEGO-Star-Rathtar-Escape-75180/dp/B06XRDP31J...

Re: Non-LEGO bits in MOCs?

I used pennies for weight in my drawbridge. I would consider that acceptable for function. The ballasts would cost a fair bit more, and would be more difficult to get a hold of in quantity.

Re: Figs/Sets for sale/trade

Those wheels can be kind of useful, if you want to turn them into a turntable or something. Those wheels alone are still going for more than $35 a piece.

Re: New to the forum?

I don't know if I would recommend LDD for just playing around. I'm the type of guy who likes to actually play around with real bricks. I think it's more fun that way, but if you do not have the pieces give it a try. There are all sorts though. LDD does allow you to do a piece count if you plan on do...

You should also note that cucumbers are not the only thing that can be pickled. ie. onions, beets, peppers, etc.

Re: For the technic Geeks.

Has anyone else noticed that the price for the BWE coming out Germany and the Netherlands on Bricklink is nearly $100 cheaper than in stores here? I know I've talked to Paul a little bit about shipping out of Germany, but what are your thoughts? Ihttps://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page...

Re: Brixo Kickstarter

I think I prefer the old lights and sound system. I think they stopped producing it since it is very expensive and they have switched entirely over to Power Functions.
