LEGO doesn't directly take product ideas from fans. However, there is a website called LEGO Ideas where you can post creations that may potentially get turned into official LEGO kits. The process is as follows: Submit your idea to LEGO Ideas. Take some time to get good pictures, and write a good description, or your idea will probably not make it off ...

The review over at Brickset mentions this exact modification: Pearl gold windows are fixed inside each gunport, preventing the deployment of cannons. While this seems slightly odd, the lattices can be removed and replaced with cannons, as demonstrated here. I appreciate these options but some furniture must be removed from inside to create enough space ...

It looks like LEGO did not intend to make Shuttle attachable to ISS despite the statement. At least not with a stud-on-stud connection like the set is designed right now. As seen in picture below, Shuttle is docked using a connection port inside storage bay with its doors open. Not sure if it is possible to replicate opened doors in scale Shuttle and ISS ...

I've been contemplating this question for quite a while. In the great tradition of this site I felt this needed practical verification. I decided to make a ruler based on scaling up set 5005107, LEGO Buildable Ruler to measure the Saturn V myself. tl;dr | STAGE | Studs Tall | Bricks Tall | |-------------------|------------|-------------| | S-...

The sixth LEGO CUUSOO set is the upcoming Exo Suit. See announcement here: http://blog.lego.cuusoo.com/2013/10/21/results-of-winter-spring-summer-lego-reviews/

It just so happens that I have this set and have come up with a way to attach it without adding pieces: All this requires is to move the two second-to-back float pads, take off the fez piece from the dock, attach it in the revealed anti stud on the bottom of the shuttle and put the fez piece back on, with the shuttle on top. I know it's not realistic because ...

I contacted LEGO and this was their reply (emphasis mine): All LEGO® 21303 WALL-E sets produced during or after November 2015 already include the neck stability revision, which includes revised Building Instructions and extra parts. You can tell the production date by checking the manufacturing code which is usually printed in black ink on the clear tape ...

Looks like LEGO switched up the numbering of the CUUSOO/Lego Idea sets. The Ghostbusters set is officially #006 as can be see on the Lego.com site and now that review units of the Exo-Suit have been released to several Lego related blog sites, it has the number #007 on it.

The other transparent part is Cylinder Quarter 4 x 4 x 6

I believe this is Panel 6 x 6 x 9 Curved Top. I couldn't find the other one that's containing the brown parrots, however. Correct me if I'm wrong, because there were a few other parts like this which were almost identical.

If the idea is a new kind of part, element in plastic, you may want to take it into your own hands and try to design it in a free cad app (like Sketchup, Open SCAD, Creo Elements or something). There are people around here (like myself) who have 3d printers, and may be able to suggest or try things out. You can then see if there is a market for such Lego ...

It looks like you don't quite understand how those robots became supported by Lego. You see, EV3 was released in 2013, and they've supported only 12 fan robots. That's not a lot, and if they were still accepting fan robots for years they definitely would've had more robots on their site. I have an unofficial book by Laurens Valk about EV3 programming, in ...

Other answers seem to be focused on stage dimensions, rather than engines as asked in the question, so I'll address that. Scaling is a pretty easy math. Stud is 8 mm and brick height is 9.6 mm. Given that the entire 100 cm (1000 mm) Saturn V rocket is 125 studs or 104 bricks and half plate high (104.166667). The real Saturn V is 363.0 ft (110.6 m) tall. ...

This part is 6047220: Plate W. Bow 2X2X2/3. You can get it from Bricklink, but first try the official LEGO replacement parts service. They will most probably send you a free replacement part and with your report you are contributing to the quality assurance project of LEGO, helping them avoid such cases in the future. P.S. Still before, check the box, the ...

The question is unclear, but I will take a stab at it. It seems that OP found the LEGO Ideas website with the LEGO Pop-Up Book project: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/cfaf7a52-02a4-4dc0-8ec3-6b94d7c36069 Then they also saw this listing at the Online LEGO Shop: https://shop.lego.com/en-US/product/Pop-Up-Book-21315 OP thinks that both sets can be bought ...

On the box the entire rocket is shown to be 100cm. I just measured the first stage, that is 40,7cm. Else you can go to service.lego.com and download the instructions aand start counting/calculating (the studs face in different directions, so you can't just count).

I'm not entirely sure which direction you're going in for the "new 'kind' of LEGO - but as you point out, unless this is based around existing LEGO elements Ideas is probably not for you: Your models may only use existing LEGO parts. We do not allow suggestions for new LEGO parts. So unless it's based on System (and by extension Friends and Elves) or ...

That's a pretty vague question, but here are some general resources on city building: Rebrickable has a large selection of MOCs. Browse through it and see if you can find something fun there. You can look through all of the official City sets. Brickset is a good place for that. Twinlug has a fun Micropolis standard you can use to build a large layout ...
