Several questions have been submitted to the LEGO Company regarding the quality of the products and their packaging through the LEGO Ambassador program. LEGO has answered these questions and the Q&A has been posted on The Brothers Brick and a few other sites. I have translated this report as best I can below in order to make it accessible to French speakers:
Question 2: Fans find it difficult to determine the colors of the parts on the instruction booklets. The "Black" and "Dark Gray" colors are difficult to distinguish from one another.
Answer: Fans aren't the only ones with this problem, we all have it. During the last 4 years, we have tried 2 or 3 times to optimize our printing techniques on this particular point, but without real success. For the products of the second semester of 2012 we will introduce an outline on the elements in "Black" - Let's cross our fingers so that this solution is satisfactory.
Question 3: The injection points on transparent parts are awful, fans do not find them acceptable for their builds because of this defect. Parts such as windows and glass require more attention when molding.
Answer: Changes have been made in this area, please let us know the references of the parts concerned so that we can check if they have been corrected.
Question 4: The "slopes" are available in different textures. Some are completely smooth while others are grainy. Standardization would be a better compromise.
Answer: 3 years ago we made sure that all roof tiles had the same surface. But for some reason, in 2003 the surface of these rough tiles was changed to smooth. All sets produced in the last 2 years contain uniform roof tiles.
Question 5: The "Studs" of some parts are sometimes full, sometimes hollowed out. It should also be standardized and unified.
Answer: Sorry, but no. A hollowed-out "stud" fulfills a necessary mounting function (A minifig tool can be inserted into the hole) or because we cannot produce a hollow-out "stud" from the inside for technical reasons. Look at the "studs" on the back of a plaque. They're hollowed out because if they aren't, we can't control the dimensions.
Question 6: The small tires are covered with a fatty and greasy material. Dust clings to it and it becomes difficult to clean.
Answer: We need this grease to remove the parts from the mold. It does get tacky, and we are constantly trying to improve the materials used in tire design, taking into account technical constraints.
Question 7: There is a major difference between parts of the same color. "Dark Red", "Red" and "Yellow" are the colors most affected by this problem. In addition, some parts are transparent, especially the red ones. They are too light in comparison to other parts of the same color.
Answer: We are constantly improving our colors and a lot of progress has been made over the past 3 - 4 years. Please judge the quality of the sets produced over the last 6 months and report any problems encountered as we want to achieve correct quality.
Question 9: The heads and torsos of the minifigs are problematic. Some heads do not fit properly to the torso, they have too much "play".
Answer: We need specific examples, please let us know so we can correct our molds.
Little info on the contents of the pack, except that we should be entitled to yet another remastered version of episodes IV, V and VI with revised and corrected explosions, boosted battles, and integrated CGI creatures.
Well anyway, whatever the content, we'll buy it and that's it .....
FBTB publishes a report on the press conference announcing the event and gives some details on the models which are being assembled for the various scenes which will be presented.
In all, these are 7 dioramas on the SW theme on which the LEGO team in charge, made up of 8 designers and dex specialists in electric animation, worked for about 13 months and which required the use of 1.5 million bricks .
Find the full report with info and photos at this address.
Connoisseurs will not learn anything new and the article is worth reading here.
In addition, do not hesitate to inform me of press releases about LEGOs, I would gladly put the articles online on the blog.
As usual, you will have to fight on eBay to afford this set of 76 pieces.
Also for the impatient, the link to the instructions is here: 20019-1: Slav I.
