We know we've lost your legs, but apparently you've also lost your heart.

Either tell me how to describe it or stop telling me to describe it.

I think that molding your own weapons would be sweet. Just make sure that they're completely badass. :D

Of course! :D


If I may ask, Stubby, do you know anything about Legos policy on copying but not selling?
Since you seem to work for them.


Thanks, m19

Found it, took about 10 minutes.
Because of course when you search on Sijun it turns up nothing.
Edit: OK now it just returns this post :)

Just a quick Google search for "ice planet"

Nope.

Prooooobably too small-time for them to worry about, but who knows. I do remember times they've gone after guys who copied existing parts in new colors, but I don't know if they would go after someone who wasn't selling them.

On bricklink you can often find people selling parts that TLC/G whatever the fuck never made in a given color, so signs point to domestic production.

Benchtop injection molding machines get cheaper every day, they are especially economical if you are fortunate enough to own a CNC machine/have one at work/have a buddy's or hackerspace's you can use.

Well, if you want to use the old one you will have to re-size it.
