comment Are there LDraw files for the standard Heroica components?
I'll bet you're the only one combining bricks.se, Heroica and LDraw for the moment.

comment How can I make a working pin tumbler lock?
@JoeWreschnig yes, that's certainly going to be an important factor, and as a matter of fact the key and the tumbler should be designed together — even if one has ideas for keys, it's only when building the tumbler that it's possible to see if the idea will be practical or not. I'm curious enough to try it too, honestly, but I don't know when I'll find the time.

It found ir rather puzzling that LEGO would create a ship for which there's no picture. Nice find.

comment Are LEGO minifigs' arms supposed to come off?
I can't add much more in the answer without really going off the topic of the question; I guess this topic should be a question fo its own. That said, LEGO has its own quality standards to maintain and they will sure want them enforced by all their partners. I think the main issue with these minifigs was that some were slightly translucent, but LEGO has had the exact same problem with regular bricks (when they started mixing the ABS and color themselves instead of buying colored ABS), so maybe the Chinese aren't to blame if they followed the LEGO recipe to the letter.

comment How can I make a working pin tumbler lock?
That's the kind of design I had in mind (maybe not multicolor though ;-)). @JoeWreschnig I was assuming there was one tumbler per brick, every 8mm thus — which seems reasonable enouch to me. But a 1x1 plate instead of tile might be gentle enough to work, depending on the design of the pins.

comment How can I make a working pin tumbler lock?
I must admit I have some doubts on the key design - the idea of the tumbler lock is that the key is a series of flats and gentle slopes so that the key pins can be pushed gently one way out of the way (against the strength of a spring, no less). I'd rather suggest two layers of 1xn plates, with 1x1 slopes above it or something.
