Question about part 4211644
Okay, i am pretty new to the forum. I have loved - loved - loved building Lego and technic as a kid but since uni and moving out of my parents house (where I left all my bricks and they gave them to my siblings :( ) I stopped for a while. I now have a five year old and after years of duplo-fun we have graduated to lego. I am not sure I am buying the things for him or just for me ;) We build together (some bits he just looks on cause we've got some sets that are to advanced for him), we play together, take apart, build again, it is so much fun! My husband is even buying me a milennium falcon, that i've wanted forever.
I've been bricksetting for a while and reading the forum and getting more and more into the lingo and ideas, this is all so exciting!
But, there is a part I have a problem with, part 4211644 and wanted to see if other people had the same problem/any solutions might be offered.
I own it in 70816: Benny's Spaceship, Spaceship, SPACESHIP!, 75017: Duel on Geonosis and
2824: City Advent Calendar. I have not opened the Geonosis one yet because it is going to be my sons Xmas present for me (yes he is five, but he likes to buy nice things for his mummy ;) ) so can't
comment on this one.
But in the spacehsip and the advent calendar this part seems to not work for me. In the advent calendar I ended up using a different construction altogether (see pic) for Santa's shower seeing as the see-through sfere just falls out of it. In Benny's spaceship (for the rest, a truly AMAZING set) you use 4 of these parts to make the arms for the two little robots. Again, the arms just fall off and do not stay on. Do you have any tips on this? I really do not want to take out the KRAGLE ;)
thanks in advance!
