Ben Duguid works in London, UK as Head of Back-end Development for Hugo & Cat, mostly delivering web sites on various Microsoft based platforms.

He has run internal training sessions helping other developers get up to speed in the technologies he knows about, and tries hard to get others to do the same.

For what it's worth he is an MCPD in ASP.NET 3.5, and is currently a Pro-Tem Mod on LEGO Answers

comment What range of parts do LEGO Stores offer, or is it just sets and games?
Not to forget all the accessories: clothes, outfits, watches, magnets, clocks, torches, etc.

comment How should I go about selling $3k worth of unsorted LEGO sets?
True enough, and well spotted. I wasn't planning on buying it either way, I know where the PDF's are ;)

comment How should I go about selling $3k worth of unsorted LEGO sets?
Hmm, apparently so, seems a bit daft when you can download them from the LEGO site - although I'm only seeing that as a Buy It Now price - I can see one manual as an auction going for 0.01. But yes, the more expensive Star Wars sets in particular are commanding very (ridiculously) high prices. If you sorted that one alone and sold that as a set (without the box) then you'd probably get a very good sum for it.

comment Is it possible to buy a bulk of 1000s of basic bricks (mostly 2x4)?
@Ambo100 I think Grandpappy means the stock cases they use to fill the PaB walls, which presumably don't come from dismantled models but a big box in the back room somewhere ;)

comment Old - New grey. Why?
I felt that the first paragraph of the accepted answer states why (to the best of our knowledge): "They were somewhat warmer than the colors today, which was perceived as looking faded, though it had nothing to do with aging. Part of the problem was that the competition (Megabloks) was using more blueish greys, which made the LEGO greys look old."

revised How many degrees can you flex an arm of a lego minifig?
Removed "or jointed" as the type of plastic has no bearing on this.
