comment How do the train wheels turn so smoothly?
@RoryAlsop: You mean that the question is about the way the axle turns freely in its plastic holder (the place where you might have a bearing in a humal-scale wheel), rather than the friction between the wheel and the track?

comment Are all the Magnet minifigs now glued on and how should I remove them?
@Zhaph-BenDuguid: I quite agree with you regarding the Hasbro figures. Unfortunately, TLG's hands are tied in that respect :-(.

-1: LEGO started producing sets of bricks in 1949, branded them LEGO Bricks in 1953. Whilst the bricks lacked the "tubes" that were patented in 1958, the earlier bricks are fully compatible with the modern ones.

comment Rebuilding the Millennium Falcon 7965 with unsorted bricks?
+1 for "NEVER THROW AWAY LEGO BRICKS". If you really want to dispose of LEGO bricks, and you aren't bothered about selling it, at least consider giving them away. And if you're ever struggling to find someone... yes, I will pay the postage. ;-)
