comment Which official LEGO sets are micro-scale versions of existing sets?
@Zhaph-BenDuguid: I know about those too, but they're sold as a set , like in a calender.

comment How can I convert an image's pixels to actual LEGO colors?
This can also be done in Photoshop by cropping an image of a mosaic to the selected area, then applying the Blur -> Average filter effect. From there you can change the image mode to an indexed colour using a Lego colour pallete.

comment How do the train wheels turn so smoothly?
@RoryAlsop: I don't understand, It might help if I knew the piece or set in question.

@RoryAlsop: I'm not quite sure what you mean by axle friction. Which particular piece are you referring to?

comment How can I blow a stream of air for up to two minutes at a time?
I like this solution the most as a I can blow air evenly up to 7cm wides. My only problem is the technical aspect of building such a device, like making the housing reasonably airtight and circular.

comment What is the difference between the NXT 1.0 controller and the NXT 2.0 controller?
I believe the bricks are physically identical.

I'm not quite sure what you had in mind by 'toggle switches'

Using linear actuators would require a processor of some sorts to follow a program like a NXT brick. I'm looking for a more mechanical solution.

If you blow hard enough you can play a note from about 2-3cm's away. That would only blow a bunch of notes but with the film would be able to block it out.

comment How can I blow a stream of air for up to two minutes at a time?
@NathanStohlmann: Yes. I intend to blow air across all notes whilst having a piece of film cover most of the notes. It seems more efficient then having a motor go back and forth blowing each note individually.

comment Can an axle be removed from this 'brick paradox'?
I was thinking a toothpick wouldn't damage the bricks but be too brittle.

comment How do I build a curved wall?
There are many ways to make a curved wall. The smallest full circle shaped wall can be made using 84 1x2 Bricks. For this scale you may require 1x1 cylinders/cones or hinges.

comment Are the LEGO Friends Mini-dolls compatible with Minifigures?
Just curious, are they actually called 'minidolls' by LEGO? I do know that hairpieces are interchangeable and the neck of a Freinds figure can fit in the 'claws' of a traditional minifig.

comment What is the male:female ratio of gendered minifigures?
I did a quick check of the released sets in the Freinds theme. There are 23 female figures and one male figure (Peter).

comment Which sets currently contain pneumatic LEGO equipment?
@tombull89: This vending machine concept is powered by a home-made linear actuator. The Linear Actuator bricks sold by LEGO are smaller.

comment What is considered the most valuable LEGO set?
Expensive Star Wars sets in mint condition are generally a good investment. The only non-Star Wars set that comes close would probably be limited edition sets like the 10182 Cafe Corner, 10184 Town Plan and 10189 Taj Mahal.

comment How do you store your built models for long-term display?
@JoeWreschnig: Thanks, I'll have a look into that. I've found one example here.

comment How do you store your built models for long-term display?
I have the same model from IKEA for displaying models and the small gaps allow a lot of dust to get into the models. The advantages having this particular display cabinet is that it can clearly display models and it's relatively cheap.
