comment Is it possible to connect an RCX to an iOS device?
The iPhone (2007) and RCX (1998) are a generation apart. I'm not saying it's impossible, but it's unlikely anyone has tried to connect the two devices.

comment How can I create a simple steering mechanism for a car?
My solution doesn't have to be motorised, you can use a gear or pulley wheel to manually adjust the wheel angle.

comment What are some free kid-friendly tutorials to get started with Mindstorms Nxt 2.0?
@ClayNichols: Ah. NXT-G supports that. You can use the Move block (not to be confused with the Motor block)

90 Degrees = 0.25 Rotations. Using the drop-down box you can choose between Unlimited, Degrees, Rotations and Seconds.

comment How to make Mindstorms respond differently, depending on which sensor is triggered?
That's true but you will also need to place it in a loop, otherwise it will run through each block only once.

NXT-G doesn't quite work that way. It runs through a set of instructions once, unless it's placed in a loop.

comment Is there a way to re-tighten a minifigure's hip joint?
Older minifig legs had looser joints, since then minifigs have been stiffened so legs will stay in place when moved.

comment What is the difference between Shuttle Adventurer (10213) and Shuttle Expedition (10231)
10231 has 26 more pieces and was released the next year. I'd have to look into what pieces they are. Perhaps it's something promotional?

comment Did LEGO recently change Millennium Falcon with a smaller kit?
@abatishchev: A large difference in style, parts and overall price. The minifigs are also more complex/detailed

comment Ninjago lightning and fire dragons
I tend to buy a set for a certain feature and use the parts else ware (point 3). In some cases LEGO sellers on Ebay split sets into key components (like each carriage of a train) and sell each component at an inflated price.

comment Firmly connect bricks in a triangle
@DannyStaple: It shouldn't be floppy once it's built, since it forms an equilateral triangle it should hold well.
