comment Why aren't LEGO bricks cubic?
@ghoppe: I'm confused. Didn't the bricks with holes in come years after the plates? Were Lego really planning that far ahead? OTOH, I can't imagine that the geometry you describe is a happy coincidence.

comment Is there a database of original Minifigure configurations, including their personal gear?
I must admit, however, that I can't comment on the quality nor usefulness of this book for the task in hand, as I have not actually seen a copy myself. Unfortunately, the cover price is just too high for something I wouldn't use that much. Nevertheless, I hope the link to the book will prove useful to someone else.

The technique isn't new this year: the The Emerald Night (which appeared in 2009) uses the single stud-in-a-hole technique for the details on its carriage.

comment How can I easily remove a jumper plate without a brick separator?
@Ambo100: There have are already been a few on Bricklink, and they have been specifically designed with this task in mind. ut you're right, of course: we won't know for sure until someone publishes their experiences. Let's hope they're good, and that this tool lives up to its promise.
