All new magnet sets introduced by LEGO will have the figures glued, as will any re-makes of existing sets. History In 2009 LEGO started producing sets of minifigures standing on magnetic bricks. At that time, the figures were removable, although some felt that they were of lower quality than the figs in regular LEGO sets. In early 2011, however, LEGO ...

I am not sure such a case exists for the HTC Desire. All of the LEGO style phone accessories I have seen in the past have been for the iphone. A bit of searching turned up these items: What appears to be a case with LEGO compatible studs (for iphone) Check out this page for other LEGO relates accessories and a picture of the above case in use with actual ...

I found them. The capes were packaged in a small, square, white, cardboard box. Apparently the little box came with the set, and someone else took the innocuous box, assumed it was trash, and put it on our recycling queue. Considering the capes are the only items out of stock besides the Cave Troll, it is possible others may be simply dismissing the box, ...

Just put them in boiling hot water and leave them for 5 minutes then take them out, straiten the torso and it should come off. If it doesn't come off then get a knife and wobble it a bit and there will be no studs in the legs and you can take the whole body apart - I have successfully used this method.

About 8 to 10 years ago there was more RCX-compatible sensors makers on the web. Today, I don't think we'll find them unless we dig into the Internet Archive. It looks like Techno-Stuff is still making some RCX-compatible components. Also, Mindsensors was making RCX-compatible components also but I couldn't find links to them through their website main ...

It is fabric - probably cotton or polyester - coated with an acrylic substance that makes it more durable and tear-resistant. You can easily print on acrylic-coated fabric using standard laser printers. You can purchase acrylic-coated fabric through suppliers that sell sign-making supplies as well as art supply shops.

The term acrylic is used for many mediums, like acrylic paint (liquid), acrylic fiber (clothing), acrylic rubber (flexible) and acrylic glass (really hard). So, as you see, it is possible to make those capes out of a type of acrylic material.

I have not heard of this problem before and I'm a member of several LEGO communities. However it is quite possibe that a batch is missing the parts, or even just your one box. I would suggest that instead of trying to get the replacement parts online, just call customer service and get them that way. Perhaps they are holding back on online stock because they ...

Good places to find parts include: Thrift stores, car boot sales, jumble sales. Sometimes you get lucky. eBay is a good general source for parts... as long as you can find what you're looking for. LEGO's Pick-a-Brick (PAB) service is good for for common parts. LEGO's replacement parts service is better for less common parts from newer sets. The range of ...

My son has a Lego Movie poster on his wall that he got in the "Mega" magazine a few weeks ago. I think it's A2 sized. We're in the UK though (I don't know where you're located) but I'd recommend looking at any magazines in shops to see what they include - some of them are a little expensive for what they are, but they usually bulk them out with free "toys" ...

If you subscribe to the Lego Club (availability depends on your location) you will receive the official Lego Magazine and often a free poster is included. The March/April 2014 edition contained a reversible poster with the Lego City theme on one side and the Disney Princess theme on the other side. Occasionally, you may receive promotional Lego posters with ...

One way to remove them would be to carefully drill out the studs. You would need to put the legs in a vise of some sort (covering the metal jaws with something that won't damage the plastic) and use a drill bit just slightly smaller than the studs. You would probably then need to cut out the remnants of the studs and glue, or at least cut out enough so a ...
