comment How many miles per hour is one notch on the IR speed remote with battery box from set 8293?
I'd like to add another comment: the IR speed remote doesn't directly control the speed. It controls the power. A heavier train needs more power to reach a given speed.

comment Instructions for LEGO bag dated 2007 bought at a Thrift store
@Laura Just FYI: the bags sometimes have information printed on them that applies to the bag itself, as a part used in the packaging. Some proof that the 2007 date applies to the bag: the bracket piece in that photo wasn't available until 2012.

@VaroujanMughdTanielian I think your capslock key is broken.

@Laura If you look at this pdf on page 24 you can see the pink circles and the various tiles from your bag. Page 6 shows the black doors being used for the car.

I thought you might have seen it, that's why I posted it as a comment rather than an answer.

There is a video which explains a little of what went into building the robot: youtube.com/watch?v=5x0n29MjIi8

comment Duplo Train Resources
If your kid loves trains, and Lego, I'd save my money for the system trains, which he'll be able to use in a couple years. Buy one or two duplo train sets, or get them used, but they don't last long, whereas the system train is an investment that will pay off for years, IMHO.

comment Temp Glue for LEGO
Track-side models often break off of train tracks when there is too much movement of the track. One of the easiest ways to prevent that, without glue, would be to put some plates under the track to build up the connection between the straight track pieces and the rest of the model. A baseplate works well for this, as long as your main model is well-connected to the baseplate. (baseplates are flexible, but with enough studs connected they hold well).

comment How can I get a direct hyperlink to a result on LEGO shop?
JSPs do not inherently require storing the search state on the server. It's merely lazy programming, or intentionally making it difficult, that results in this behaviour. In any case, it's helpful to erase all your cookies from the lego site from time to time as their site does get confused.

comment Why do some minifigs have yellow heads and some are flesh colored?
Clarification: non-human and monstrous minifigs had non-yellow heads long before the flesh-toned heads, however, they usually aren't Caucasian-skin-peach-toned.

Can you describe in more detail what you mean by "the jamming issue"?

comment What LEGO sets/blocks to buy?
I don't know brictec. Generally I avoid the other brands as I find the quality isn't as high. Also, if you're planning to mix together the bricks from multiple sets, buying fewer larger sets usually gets you more pieces than more smaller sets would.

comment What LEGO sets/blocks to buy?
10696 is fine. It contains a little of this, a little of that. It's a good assortment to get started. It has enough pieces for one big model or several small ones. Since this is for a group to pay with rather than one child to own, the lack of instructions is fine and probably good as they'd get lost anyway.

comment Identification for Hinge-like Piece
@SamuelL. nitpick: The droid body has graduated from the Star Wars theme some time ago, and appears in all sorts of sets besides Star Wars.

comment What is the most cost effective way to get basic bricks in bulk?
FWIW my understanding is that in North America the Lego stores are no longer selling whole boxes of pick-a-brick elements.

comment Are these real Lego figures?
The head reminds me of the freckled boy face from a few years ago. Also it's worth pointing out that while these are official Lego pieces, this particular arrangement is strictly unofficial.

comment Identification please
Also the Technic pin/axle connector is in almost no sets in both red and yellow, and the sets they DO appear in look unlikely to have a polybag with just one of each in it.

Yeah almost no sets ever have that many light-bley 2x4s
