comment How are LEGO sets designed?
You may also want to read designer Mark Stafford's interview which provides a lot of insight on this as well - including the reason why the Technic axle 4 is more expensive.

comment Does cleaning LEGO parts affect their value?
As you can expect, the answer to this will most certainly be "yes" in most cases as there's always a chance of scratching the parts. However, you could argue that getting bricks dirty is what diminishes their value to start with (some would go as far as saying opening the box is already a bad idea :-))

comment Extra pieces in my set - Eiffel Tower
Most of the times it's not really a matter of number of extra pieces but what they are. If a set uses 9 different colors of 1x1 round plates, for example, you'll get an extra for each color no matter what? So, what are the extras?

Well, nothing a good search can't handle, apparently... here you go: LEGO Turns Design Concepts into Working Prototypes using Objet 3D Printer - the video provided by LEGO is very interesting.

comment Has anyone made their own custom LEGO bricks?
Sorry, this isn't something I read on the web, but witnessed firsthand. LEGO Benelux once lend BeLUG a prototype of 8294 Excavator to show at an event, and the linear actuators in there weren't fully functional, but prototype parts which had clearly been 3D printed. I may have seen this on other occasions as well, but that example was very obvious.

comment Can I change the firmware on a Retail EV3 Intelligent brick to the Educational version?
The hardware is most certainly identical, so I don't see why you wouldn't be able to change the firmware at will. Actually, I wonder if it isn't the exact same firmware to start with.
