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.

I call these mudguards or wheel arches

3rd party accessories should be separate.

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.

Just to clarify are we referring to the dragons from 2507 and 2521?

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.

Is this what you were looking for?

comment Which sets can be built in the bag (all the parts are in one bag)?
Rather then listing all of the sets, I'd go by the general rule that sets that are 9.5cm x 9.5cm x 4.5cm or smaller are in one bag (or just in the box). The Court Jester (7953) is one exception in that the Jester hat is packaged separably.

How about 'What sets can be bag-built?' for a title?

comment How to get started with Mindstorms?
Although this refers to RCX (The older version of Mindstorms) most of the advice still applies to NXT. The main differences can be found listed here.

Could do with less pictures maybe?

comment Is it possible to change the battery in a 54604 light brick?
Not to worry. I presume it's something they've added since 2006 when Power Functions were released.

comment How do I make my own LEGO stickers?
I think this question is sufficiently different enough for me to undelete this question. I'm also desperate for an answer.
