Been playing with LEGO for years. Notable for selling most of my entire 1990's collection to Steve Jackson of Steve Jackson Games. Now I'm accumulating again because of my kid.

comment Has Lego discontinued presenting alternate configurations on the backs of modern boxes?
This is the sort of info I'm looking for. Needs more research to back it up, but I'll accept any answer with a sourced variant on this comment info.

Have they given a reason why?

I'm referring to the instruction-less alternate builds, which were commonly displayed on the back and sides of the box.

comment Design of record-breaking builds
Are you limited to generic pieces or can you use custom parts; for example pieces used to create walls and wall corners in Castle?

comment What are the armless minifigures from the LEGO boardgames called?
+1 Good answer on usability. Was going to ask about utility in a separate question.

@Joubarc - I wouldn't know; I don't own one. I've only seen them on the covers, like on Minotaurus.

Anything to corroborate that?

comment Where are the cloth / fabric minifigure capes / cloaks in my set?
That was what I was initially trying to do prior to this response; I completed the rephrasing earlier today.

I did place the order through their website, but I'll make a call out tomorrow too.

comment How does LEGO handle the breakage of Hero Factory sockets?
Yeah, tell that advice to my 6-year-old. Thanks for your input. In my opinion, your piece-specific answer trumped the prior answer as it really does address the true underlying question about this particular piece.

Of note, I added an image of the broken parts.

Thank you for the response, though not the complete answer I was looking for (upvoted!). I did contact them a while ago via Twitter, as it seems the "go-to" avenue for many who have quality issues with items or prefer a direct customer service response. I'll try the link and update this question when I receive a response; I am very responsive with StackExchange communique, so I won't keep this question hanging for too long.
