comment Why are Lego products so expensive in Europe?
I'm going to guess that part of it is that the 19% sales tax is included in the EU but in the US sales taxes are normally applied only when you purchase (partly because they vary depending on your location). So a US purchaser might find state, county and city taxes applied.

revised Unknown brick/piece information (curved, decorated slope)
more useful title. 500 questions all titled "what is this" will suck.

comment Design of record-breaking builds
Actually, the 3.5km limit is easily reachable just by making the pyramid wider. If the base was 3.5km on a side and tapered straight to a point at 3.5km high it'd be pretty stable. And heavy. And use a lot of Lego.

Couldn't find the axles easily, this one will have to wait until I unpack the collection (after we move, hopefully in not too many months time)

yeah, GWR are quite specific and rule out basically anything using Lego Technic parts. Technic cranes often top 4m using truss frames of liftarms, but GWR doesn't allow that either (even if you use "technic brick with holes"). It's stacked bricks or nothing.
