comment Known quality control issue with 10234 Sydney Opera House?
I can't speak to quality control on this specific set, but if you ever find your set is missing pieces, you can easily get them replaced free of charge at service.lego.com/en-us/replacementparts#BasicInfo

comment How much do bricks cost at the LEGO Store?
Actually, a purchase from the Build-a-Mini tower only needs to total 15 pieces: the types don't matter. For instance, I bought my sister about 12 minifigure heads and a few other minifig parts as a gift, and the staff were totally fine with it. You're also allowed to change the individual torsos and pants to suit your liking. A double peg-legged set of legs, or a mermaid torso with hooks for hands are no problem!

comment Is there a reliable way to determine what minifigure is in a LEGO Minifigures series package?
Could you try to update this for Series 6?

comment Is it unethical to distribute 3D models of Lego bricks?
Are 2d renderings of the CC-BY parts considered to be derivative works? Is attribution required for those 2d renderings?

comment Where and when did the straight block letter LEGO logo appear on brick studs?
Note: I retagged this question with [history] instead of [identification], as you seemed to be asking about the history of the straight lettering than trying to identify something. Also, very interesting question -- can't wait see some answers!

comment How can I catalog my LEGO pieces?
Sorry about that, I haven't been on SE for several days due to school. Sorry again for not being able to respond.

Actually, if you have a Rebrickable.com account (I do), then you can add individual elements to a digital list of your collection. Also, it's free to sign up, so it's a pretty useful resource, in my opinion.

Have a look at this question -- it's probably what you're trying to find.

comment How to fix my XL motor?
What?! Really? Are you serious? I should check to see if they'll replace my two busted motors! I thought if your Power Functions stop working you have to buy new ones yourself. I am definitely going to see what they've got to say.

For AFOLs, 10 bucks is not bad at all, but for kids, 10 dollars may well be a good amount of yearly income.

That is probably the only heart necklace I'd ever wear. :)

Feel free to add or change tags as appropriate; I wasn't sure which ones would be best. Additionally, the first link is to Wikipedia: go ahead and switch that for the image listed there if it would be easier to read.

comment Lego-compatible suction cups?
I'm sorry, but the question specifically asked "is there anything out there I could buy?". Unless the suction cups for the Vertigo III are for sale, this is not a valid answer. Sorry if I'm sounding harsh, but this is not one of the possible right answers.

Check out The Vertigo III on LEGO.com's NXTLOG. It is probably a pretty good example of what Dave's looking for.

@Ambo100 You have not gone unnoticed, you crafty tag-adding-person, you! :)

Awesome. GIMP rocks. Let me make sure this method works (not that you're untrustworthy, I just want to be sure) and I'll accept it then!

comment Is it possible to add the power functions to Western Train Chase?
This may sound like a dumb question, but have you made sure the batteries in the battery box are fully charged?
