Pre-order the new injection molded PFx Brick; the new standard across all PFx Bricks replacing the 3D printed enclosures used for our production debut.
Here are some of the new improvements we've made to the new PFx Brick:
- Technic Pin Holes - side mounted Technic pin holes allow more robust attachment options for integrating the PFx Brick into Technic models as well as conventional brick built models.
- Bottom Anti-Studs - the underside of the enclosure is both functionally and aesthetically more compatible with the Lego system stud / anti-stud connection and now permits some interconnection schemes at half-stud intervals.
- Durability - the lid now includes mechanical reinforcement features around the the speaker and IR connector ports to resist excessive bending or twisting forces on the connector. The Power Functions compatible input and output connectors include additional bracing and precision mechanical guidance for the gold-plated pins.
Once again, our good friends at Brick Model Railroader hosted the "OcTRAINber" train building contest. This is such a fun event with so many amazing entries, so we were pleased to sponsor prizes to support it again. This time, BMR challenged builders to showcase their Technic skills and build a model with interesting mechanical and functional features.
Here they are!
Our PFx Brick M Package winner is Denis Garnier for his impressive "rolling road" test bench. It is awesome to see someone actually create a rolling road test bench, something we've been meaning to try for a while. Denis' creation has many clever functional details that look like they can be easily adapted for many types of locomotives. The icing on the cake was Denis' superb model of the SNCF 140C steam locomotive used as a "test subject". Well done, Denis!
Congratulations again to all the OcTRAINber 2019 winners! We look forward to getting Chris and Denis their PFx Brick prizes packages delivered to see what they'll create next.
