Former LEGO ambassador and LEGO zealot as a whole. If I could give negative rep for people writing "Legos", I would. It's going to be very hard not to suspend any offender though.

comment How has the basic brick changed over the years?
@CadeRoux — right, but it's not really a structural change. I think the clutch power should be the same, since they've left plastic on the part of the walls where the studs touch it. But they're less plastic, that's for sure.

comment How can I easily remove a jumper plate without a brick separator?
That ascii-art is surprisingly simple and efficient. As for the answer, sometimes adding a brick opposite the your 2x12 plate helps too, as that brick will stay in place and you can lift the 2x12 plate as well as pulling it, producing a lever effect too.

Well, it was correct, actually — I'll add that to my answer.

comment Are there any health concerns with letting children use old LEGO kits?
@Sibbo: Joe is right, magnets are fully embedded in buffers now, that's what I was talking about.

comment What are some storage options?
When using big bins, use big, low ones. Good advise, and that one one of the less efficient methoed!

comment Why are minifigure head studs now hollow?
Well, I've seen enough references to this that it sounds likely, but then I don't get why LEGO would go back. I've sent the question to someone there in the hope of settling it once and for all.

The hole in the stud of heads is actually going away now.

comment Can Lego soccer (football) parts be used for anything other than soccer?
I suppose the Vikings designer was in love with that part. I've only built 7020 and I didn't know about the others, but I guess the usage is similar in all sets: launch some form of missile using the spring power. But I think the magazine mechanism in 7020 is really a nice touch. Fire up to 10 projectiles without rloading!
