I'm a software developer working on a social-networking site. I work mainly in J2EE, SQL, HTML, JavaScript and CSS. My free time is spent raising a daughter and a son and indoctrinating them in the cult of Lego.

@gev I included it because some people don't use the terminology as strictly as others do :)

comment Is it possible to run more than two remote control trains on one track?
Or just use one remote and switch its channel to match the train. Red 1, Blue 1, Red 2, Blue 2, etc.

comment What are the tiny, single-peg, statuette figures from the SHIELD Helicarrier called?
I'm pretty sure it's hard to trademark a phrase like "nano-figure". If Lego already has "minifigure" and "microfigure" then "nanofigure" seems pretty reasonable. I'm not sure some other brand's use of the generic term "nano" would be infringed.

comment How is this brick attached to the pregnant minifig?
@Nick2253 On my older minifig they fit slightly better; I can jam the bracket down about 1mm. If the leg studs or the bracket were shaved a bit, it could be made to work, but I'm not willing to test that.

I tried several brackets on my newest and oldest (30 years old) minifigs at hand. None fit.

I can't get neck brackets to fit over the minifig hip studs.

comment How is this brick attached to the pregnant minifig?
I don't have a huge quantity of those parts, but the ones I have, of various ages, do not fit on any of my minifig's hips. The studs on the hips are thicker than the regular studs.

comment Is it safe to use a hot glue gun for Mega Bloks?
You mention the "collectible" nature of the item. I can assure you that after you glue it, the only collector who'll want it is you. Nothing devalues a building toy like glue.
