Cool, thanks Pierre. Do you have a link to any more photos of those 2?

Number of clutches

Does this justify wanting 'virgin' lego when drafting? :lol:

Re: 420

I had that set as well, which I think is what made it extra funny for me.

Maybe I'll dig out the parts this weekend and build it.

420

Short version of a long story. There was a discussion/argument at work where the term '420' came from ... it lead to some googling which lead to this:

Given the age of the set I'm sure there's no official connection, but a funny coincidence...

Re: Harry Potter Lego

Just a heads up that Diagon Alley was recently flagged as "Retiring Soon" on the Lego web site. I'm not sure how long it takes for a set to 'retire', maybe it just means they aren't producing them any more and are just selling what they have in stock?

X-mas suggestions

So, my son ( just turning 8 ) thinks he wants the Mindstorms set for Christmas. I think he would enjoy it (and who's kidding who, so would I :) ), but it's definite pricy. Is the best place to get it a US lego store? The other thing we might be able to substitute would be a lego remote controlled ca...

Re: help with what that piece might be

Hey Keith, I don't actually have any of those 'timing gears' so I can't say for sure, but to me it looks like it's a set of those timing gears with a 'bar 4L' stuck between each tooth. You'll notice in the 2 photos you commented on they pillars are either 4 or 8 high. http://www.bricklink.com/catalo...

Maybe someone with a flickr account could send a message to this guy to add the Vancouver store. Then using this site might be the easeist way to keep an up-to-date inventory?

Re: New to the forum?

So while the modulars might be acceptably wide (in some cases) they aren't deep enough. So I'm expanding them by stretching them... I realize this isn't quite what you're working on but it might be inspiring.. http://www.3xgyro.com/GEplus/GEplus_8_Teardown1.jpg More here: http://brikkelauget.no/dis...

Perhaps the humour is a bit black, but I love the way you changed the pet shop into a 'Meat' shop. Did you change the interior as well or are all the pets still inside?

My initial reaction is similar, like the building not crazy about the color.
