Hi, I called myself deafpilotboy because I am one of few youngest deaf boy who got pilot license! My hobby is to do stop motion with LEGO. Sure LEGO can be great hobby for Adult too! Here my Blog about my experience on doing stop motion and my point of view of LEGO. Enjoy!
While I was cleaning my attic, I found my old uniform from the Space Camp and it barely fit me since I was 13 year old, Yes, I was pretty tall boy. It nice to wear it again and it remind me of my dream that never died on me no matter how my life turn out.
It been while since my last blog post. I am working on my 3D model of my 2 little famous lego actor. Maybe I am go mix with some of 3D software with stopmotion to find more leverage for my time management. I am go see how it work out. I used few software mix together, they are LDD, LeoCAD and very very old school 3D animation software called Carrara Studio come from 2003. They will be on my youtube channel at some point.

After try to figure out the best way to motorized the LEGO Lone Ranger Constitution Train 79111 without change the appear of the Train engine. I figured best way is to just simple created the MOC motorized caboose train to push it from the back.
Thank to my Bricklink.com buddy name A Merry Venture for sell me awesome piece to build this setting. I recommend to try his store anytime you place order LEGO part. Here his logo banner from his store site look like this.
My son own the 79104 The Shellraiser Street Chase Ninja Turtles. Other day he was play with it and accident broke it apart. He asked for my help to rebuild it. After I download the instruction in pdf for those set from http://service.lego.com/en-us/buildinginstructions/ look like image below.
While I was helping my son rebuilding it, I was struggle with look for missing piece that don't exist. Until I finally realized there was a 2 diff instruction book with different piece but the outside of it look same. Even both are under same set number as you can see the different in those 2 image below.
This image come instruction book that use more techie lego piece to build support under it.
While other one instruction in here only use one large black train platform piece to support under it.
For Power Function Train, which do you prefer type of battery power function?
Both have it own pro and con....
Not know the different in both battery? Here the Detail. If you already know the different then skip to vote box on the bottom of blog.
Power Functions Rechargeable Battery Box 8878
It rechaged by plug into the wall input. very convince way to recharge it up. But the question is how long dose the battery cycle life span last in long term? If it ran out of cycle charging out, you have to buy the new one for retail value USD $49.99. Very easy to leave the battery in the lego train and just put wire in the train while charge without need take them part to replace it.
Power Functions AAA Battery Box 88000
The most cheaper battery pack retail value USD $12.99 that require you to put in 6 AAA battery, value of it may be reasonable if you use rechargeable AAA battery instead of disposable battery. For long term, you can have that one pack for life time and easy replace the old aaa battery for cheaper. But depend on the train lego, some will require you more time to take lego apart to pull out the battery AAA battery, recharge it, put back in LEGO train to play with it.
Which do you prefer type of battery for power function LEGO train?
