Don't limit yourself to just what you have. I'm sure Bricklink has a few options. Most torsos can be found cheap.

Just look up the set on BrickLink and view the inventory:

http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemInv.asp?S=21113-1

Then find the bucket (infuriatingly listed as "container" which made this really hard to find when I searched for "bucket"):

http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=95343

Then look at all the sets it's been in:

I was mostly curious because I have this fixation with engines in my Lego sets. Whenever I build a Lego car and it has a hidden away odd looking block where the engine would be, I can't help but giggle to myself and consider it the "Engine block"

In the same way, I'm deeply amused by the removable engine/reactor behind the pilot.

The facades aren't as ornate as i would like and the bottom floor of the left building looks a bit boring (apart from the cornices with crazy pieces and that sweet decorative balljoint usage). But what i love about it is how it really feels like a small street on its own already. The small castiron balconies in between the two and the length/width contrast is really cozy.

I'm hoping they also add some open windows and emergency stairs in the back for some rear window action.

Nah, they're all one mould. This was a picture I took of that from the biggest set, The Mine: >>4528391

Here's a better look at the front for this one.

>>4535712
Strictly as parts, as the ingredients to MOCs they are all compatible with eachother. That's not an opinion, it's a fact. The lore and themes of constraction sets is a whole different can of worms.

>>4535720
The lore is what makes bionicle good and hf a terrible idea.

Last up, here's the equipment from the set. All wooden, and in this color, they're all exclusive. Heck, the axe is an exclusive piece/mould that only comes in this set.

and you're entitled to that opinion although I mostly agree. I feel that Bionicle became too large and convoluted for its own good near the end. I'm glad the new series is a reboot.

If he likes minecraft, good chance he'll like it, if he doesn't care that much about minecraft... lot less chances.

In any case, take two different sets, if he doesn't like it, you can still have it for yourself.
>>
>>4535767
Does your brother like Minecraft? I think any kid who plays and enjoys Minecraft will love these. If he doesn't, I dunno. If he likes building MOCs, I'm sure he'd either like the builds or make his own cool creation from it.

The Mine in my opinion is worth it. The sucker is HUGE, and it's one of those sets that is really fun to play with and build. As a display piece, I guess it's not the best if you don't have any other sets. I put pictures of it here: >>4528375

>Hey guys, TRUfag here.
>The street date for the Rocket Raccoon polybag (as far as I know, this is nation wide for Toys "R" Us) was today. We had them for sale for $4.99 in the same place we usually stock the other polybags. I'm the manager in the area with the LEGOs, so I took the initiative to take them off the floor because of neckbeard scalper faggots buying twenty at a time. Apparently the exact distribution is up to the regional higher-ups, but the official date when the figure was allowed to start being distributed was today.

As a manager, I'd be fine with that. The scalping incident that instigated me taking them off the floor was one particularly neckbeardy neckbeard that bought every one we had on the floor at the time (something like 25). As long as you're not being THAT guy, you should be fine.

I like how you have movable limbs on yours. Looks breddy good

I've been trying to make a minifig scale powered exoskeleton that holds a whole fig (becuase slapping a minifig head on a robot body feels wrong and feels like a copout) But I had to sacrifice articulation to keep the size small as possible. Anyone have tips to make it more articulated/make the harness look better? I'm not satisfied with this

I'm not sure if it'll work with your design, but have you tried the mini balljoints from the Chima Legend Beasts? They're pretty compact little things.

>>4536205
Yeah they add too much length. The proportions of what I have right now are perfect but the fact that it has no articulation is killing me. The stuff I make always has functionality in them and this is sorely lacking in that department

Is there someone, that could help me out with a Rocket Raccoon?

I am from Holland, and we don't even have a official TRU so I think that there is no change at all to obtain this.

I would be happy, to pay for the mail and other expenses. I would rather give a /toy/soldier some money, then a ebay scalper.

Oh boy.

I also work as a manager in a TRU. We've gotten the Rocket Raccoons but I've told my employees to keep them to one per customer, since they're prime bait for reselling scum

So I get a call from the register. I walk there and there's this fat, balding 40-yo something guy that literally has every single Rocket Racoon we had out in the store on the counter, he wanted to buy all of them. I got the call because the girl simply stated that there's a one per customer local store policy and this guy got mad and pulled out his phone and started looking at the TRU site because "he was sure it didn't say so on the webpage"

I told him that we can do what we want, especially with "promo"-stuff like the polybags (half-truth, we can't really do it but if he'd phone them I could simply pull some crap about how we don't have many and I want as many kids to get one to get HQ approval)

He kept raving about how he had been at 3 others TRU (probably bullshit) and how he could buy as many as he wanted there and that they even pulled out more from the back for him at one (definitively bullshit) and by now there's been a small line behind him so I just say

"Gee mister, do you really need that many toys? You know these are intended for children and that's we have a limit of one per customer" and I hear someone snicker in the line

He almost throws the money at the poor girl in the register, grabs his one Rocket and walks away

Fucking resellers, man

People living in western EU or the US are lucky. I recently started selling Lego in my home country of Bulgaria and the retail prices of Lego are crazy. Here's an example 60052 train set costs around 250 Euro I can buy it at 133 Euro from a Austrian toy shop and by the time I get the cost is around 137 Euro depending on shipping. I can sell it around 180 Euro for a good 30% profit. I don't understand how Lego can be so expensive in a country with a 400 Euro avg salary.
>>
>>4536552

Isn't everything besides food and drink stupidly expensive there, though? Last time I visited my Dad in Veliko Tarnovo, I was getting drunk on grozdova every day for the equivalent of 4 bongdollars.

That said, I was trying to convince the Old Man to buy a Sopwith Camel from a Bricklink seller in Popovo for the equivalent of £90, which isn't actually too bad.
>>
>>4536491
Not him but I barely consider that scalping. If you're gonna use the parts, cool, if you're gonna resell close to MSRP, that's nice.
>>
>>4536491
I'd be totally cool with it. Like other anons here I agree that there's a difference between scalping and reselling.

I myself resell stuff to fuel my LEGO interest, mainly I buy clearanced stuff on atleast 50 % and then sell it for slightly under MSRP. Nets a nice profit.

However scalpers buy everyone of a certain item then sells it for way too high prices. Also, I don't wanna be judgemental but it feels that I've kinda learned to spot a reseller. It seems that they're either a fat, balding guy or one of those lanky guys with shitty beards.

I'm assuming you're referring to their small percentage of frog DNA, and I fail to see how that would remove their feathers. It would only do that if the sequence for their feathers was one of the ones missing, it's not as if frog DNA overwrites any host DNA having to do with feathers. They're not inherently incompatible.

Now that I look at it, it doesn't have too many, if any exclusive pieces.

Like a few other anons here, I've never been too keen on the tendency for Technic models to have large gaps, though I understand that imagination is key to "fill" those gaps in your mind. It just does bad things for my aesthetic sense (AKA OCD) to the point where I've even passed over buying large Creator sets where something such as a windscreen has been represented by an empty frame. Many models with steering also have a problem with fuckhuge wheelarches, because the size limitation of available parts means that the pivot point is way outside the centreline of the hub, resulting in some forward / backward movement of the entire wheel.

Pic related is a work in progress for a steering system that works in tight spaces. Although it works great in principle, it's limited to vehicles that are 18-20 studs wide, and the moving parts flex so much that they actually rub against the TOP of the wheelarches. The weird dimensions of Technic beams (liftarms) means I can't easily use some other parts to seamlessly brace them from above. The rear wheels also need to steer because the turning circle would otherwise be crap, so I'm gonna have to burn all this and find another way if I'm going to go with my plan to rig this with Power Functions.

For some builders, finding solutions to stuff like this might be so annoying as to get in the way of actually enjoying building, and must admit that I've gotten pissed of quite a few times, only to end up with something that is full of problems. But I'm determined to make this my bitch because I know I can come up with a solution. Eventually.

tl;dr: Technic is fucking hard work.
>>
>>4537380
>tl;dr: Technic is fucking hard work.
That's why it's only for ages 12 and up.
>>
>>4537406

Sure, that's a guideline for the sets and boxed accessories, though. I'm hitting dead ends because I'm looking for solutions that TLG designers either cannot or don't need to find. I personally enjoy messing about with Technic bits (as I have done since the days before beams revolutionised the approach to building). The tl;dr was just me trying to understand why people might prefer a streamlined building experience as opposed to trying to solve engineering problems. I am in no way trying to imply anything negative about builders who don't bother with Technic.

The crazy part is, I only want to make all this >>4537380 work so that I can build a motorised Model Team sort of thing.
>>
I have few questions about Bricklink. If I put 50 items on my wanted list, then order, say, 20, from one store, does it automatically turn the amout on my wanted list to 30 or do I have to do it manually?

Second, is there any way for it to show a store that has as many things from the list in stock as possible?
>>
>>4537380
The holes are to be covered with other stuff, there are plenty of pieces allowing you to place regular blocks on top of it.
(pic related, my favorite.)

As for the technical problems, good luck with that...

>But I'm determined to make this my bitch because I know I can come up with a solution.

Unfortunately, it doesn't auto-deduct what you've bought from wantlists. There's a way to do it manually, but I can't get on BL right now to find the exact options. Near the top of your orders list, there'll be a link or a tab where you can configure which icons show up in each row of your orders. One of them places a little scroll which will show you the items from each order which appear on your wantlists (I think there's also a listbox on that page to choose specific wantlists, otherwise it's global).

The quantity box there will still show what you originally put in, even if you bought a different amount from the store, so it's a good idea to open the order details in a different tab to compare. It's also useful for moving stuff into a "pending delivery" wantlist - in case there are missing parts or somesuch - to save the bother of adding everything again.

>>4537440
>>4537450
>>4537457

Yeah, the gap is roughly half of what an angle bracket would fill - more like the thickness of one of those rocking plates for the old hinge bricks. I'm gonna bust out all the bits and build it again to see if I get an epiphany. I need to build a treadmill anyway for some fun with differentials.

The problem with basic yellow is that it's also a building colour. Light flesh is almost exclusively used as a skin colour, so you don't have cases where the skin is the same colour as other parts of the build.

(it /is/ too bad Lego hasn't replaced standard yellow for non-fig parts with Bright Light Orange, though, normal yellow always looked too lemon-y to me)
