Because, the size matters!

Sometimes there are so simple things, that it took you sometime to realize it worths to post, or to make others to think the same.

Just in case you do not have a trained eye and have too much difficulty to figure out, about the length of each TECHNIC axle, beam or brick, then you have now a new tool as an option...



Available at LEGOLAND Parks, or order it from S@H (here).

It's an interesting tool but it isn't available in EU, ohh

Conchas said...

It was listed for European countries for some time, mentioning an expected availability date in August and still without price.

No seems it won't be available anymore.
Maybe a mistake to correct closer to the previously expected date.

Oh please... any AFOL worth his/her salt can eyeball the length of a beam or axle from 5 feet away :-)))

(Admittedly, it's taken me some time to get the hang of judging 1x14 beams ;-)

JAMS said...

I agree with TJ, lol

Parax said...

haha yep I think TJ is right.. But this is ideal for those who are not experianced AFOL's afterall Lego was originally for kids.. (shhh!) this would be Ideal for the educational Kit Boxes..
I cant help but think they could have made a better shaped piece though, something with proper studs or technic pin holes for MOCing with...

Parax said...

BTW is that confirmation there will not be an 11 Axle?

Conchas said...

LOL

At least for the moment. :-/

JAMS said...

Pretty nifty device though, brick height, length, liftarm length, axle length, all in one thing

Jorho Erst said...

for all of those who can't count...

I can see axle or beam length from few meters away... Still good for beginners.

JAMS said...

its a gimmick thats for sure.

when i was four i would just take an axle and place it next to like, a 16 stud technic brick to figure out its length.

Then i grew eyeballs

These are available at my local LEGO store, but I agree, a person should practice a bit to get to know sizes. It will make the work much faster.
