Over the last 6 months I have focused on rebuilding the majority of the backend code that deals with calculating parts reuse between sets (i.e. the main reason behind Rebrickable!). I am happy, and quite a bit relieved, to finally announce that this new functionality is now live and I am going to go ahead and call it v2 :)
Inside the classy LEGO internal set style box we have:
The competition held last December was a great success with lots of awesome MOCs. We are running another one for April, with a similar theme. Create and submit a MOC using only the parts from any single set of your choice (that meets the criteria below). If your submission gets the most votes at the end of the month, you win $100!
The last of the 2-in-1 sets to review, The Flying Flusher is an interesting one. In what I think is a first for LEGO, this set consists of an outdoor toilet cubicle and plumber van. These transform into the Flying Flusher to shoot... erm... toilet things at the bad guy.
Here we have another of the 2-in-1 sets, this time in a Castle theme. The idea of a medieval themed Castle transforming into a flying war machine is interesting, and since this is the LEGO Movie theme anything is possible :)
This is another of the object-transformed-into-flying-thing against an evil black Micro Manager robot who is picking on an innocent bystander. In this case, there are actually two good-guy vehicles, a great looking western themed biplane and a flying kebab shop.
This is another of the 2-in-1 sets where the alternate creation is once again a must build. It's not really clear which one is the alternate creation though but whichever one looks more interesting is the one I have been building 2nd. In this case it's definitely the Trash Chomper.
This is one of the larger sets with over 500 parts, two good sized and good looking models and 5 minifigs.
