    LEGO House Live Tours

    I don't think I heard the story about the airstrip/half share in an airplane previously. The fact that the electronic train had a "Mindstorms like pricetag" was also surprising.

    Inspired by the LEGO® DC Superheroes Collectable Minfigures, I would like to challenge you to build a minifigure habitat for a hero. But it does not need to be for a DC Superhero. Marvel Superheroes are also valid, and since not all Superheroes Wear Capes and crazy costumes: LEGO City characters who do heroic things can also be used: Emergency services, Teachers, the person who fixes you Wi-Fi connection. Entries are open around the world, and there are prizes, courtesy of the AFOL Engagement Team. Check out the full details at this link .
  4. To celebrate the release of series 19 of the collectable minifigures, I am running a competition. Build a minifigure habitat for a chance to win a complete set of Series 19 minifigures, and a LEGO Shoping spree. Details can be found at https://ramblingbrick.com/2019/09/15/build-a-habitat-for-a-minifigure-to-win-a-set-of-series-19-collectable-minifigures/
  5. I know that they are, Kevin. It is just a matter of time before the possibilities are opened up.
  6. At the Rambling Brick, we have started to publish some articles based on the content from RLFM Days. In particular, putting together the information based on the Powered Up presentation/interview, as well as my interview with the Technic team. Hopefully this might help you to understand the Differences between Powered Up and Control+ Apps, and what you can do with them, Today https://ramblingbrick.com/2019/08/04/a-mans-got-to-know-his-limitations-control-and-powered-up-apps-august-2019/
  7. I believe that USA do it by cupfuls, but they have LEGO brand retail, rather than certified stores. LEGO certified stores are more common through Asia, Southern Europe, and South America and typically go by weight on their PaB walls. I am not sure about Legoland discovery centres in USA, but the Legoland parks around the world charge by weight.
  8. In the Australian Certified Stores, PaB is sold by the cup, rather than by the 100g. Even at the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre. So it is already being piloted in some markets.

    Powered Up Update

    I think this is more about the sunlight/line of sight. On a bright day, Ali can’t get 10m out of PF. You can also conceal you receiver inside the model.(compared to PF) Lots of channels are available BUT at present only one hub at a time can be used with the app. It is apparently possible to control two hubs with the same remote (using the same channel), but I have not tried this personally. Details are in the original community questions, from the time of the initial release of PU. The two channel Powered up hubs, as provided with the bat mobile and train sets, can use the Boost sensor to trigger events, or control the boost servo motor (or take readings from the servo motor) the new version of the app provides a programming environment very similar to the Boost app, incorporating both boost and powered up elements. Compared to the boost app, it seems to be MUCH more stable, and significantly faster to get running. (And boost should be able to be controlled too) you can find an example of the sensor here: https://youtu.be/qUHjSxLFKqA

    Powered Up Update

    The Powered Up FAQ needs a bit of an update, given that Boost now works with the Powered Up app, and boost elements can be controlled from the Powered Up hub, using the app. I’m sure it’s coming. [Somehow I missed the comment above before I posted - apologies for the redundancy]
