Lego Got Hot!

Post by drazhar on Tue 03 Jan 2012, 4:43 am

I just started building my new Millennium Falcon, got about quarter the way through when i was ordered by my girlfriend to bring it to her house...
Long story short i left it in my car for a while and because the car got quite hot the pieces don't stay together very well! like even Luke Skywalkers legs feel loose when connected with his torso and the other brinks feel loose when placed together...

Any Ideas on how to fix it? :-(

I would say that you have a problem.

From what I have read, the temperature inside an enclosed car in the Australian summer can get up to 70ÂșC. This is hot enough to kill a human.

An analogy would be leaving a CD on the back shelf of a sedan; it doesn't play very well after you leave it there in the sun all day.

Plastic expands in the heat. I would say that you have cooked these bricks and that they have twisted out of shape. I doubt if putting them in the freezer will bring them back to shape.

Maybe your girlfriend can buy you a new set for coming when she asked?
