What part desperately needs a new mo(u)ld?

Rolyat24Rolyat24 PA, USAMember Posts: 41
Lego has, especially in recent years, updated quite a lot of their molds. The horse, pirate bandanna, and crocodile have all undergone changes pretty recently. Other, less prominent changes have occurred in arches and jumper plates, changes which, if not for the New Elementary, I would never have noticed. My question to you is what part you think most deserves an updated mold next. I personally would change the book piece. I've never been a big fan of it and I think TLG could do a whole lot better. Thoughts?

    These:

    Also, I find it quite annoying that there are no inverted versions of this slope: image

    But I guess that's where SNOT comes in :)

    I'd prefer new parts rather than updated existing parts. The problem with updating is that parts don't always match older ones - you have to be careful with arches for examples.

    If new moulds are allowed, then a 1x1 brick with studs on 2 adjacent sides, and studs on three sides.

    The robot ar. It is an excellent and very useful piece, but LEGO changed something on it recently and since then it falls off even if you look at it wrong. They are prominent as the shoulder pads on the Exo-Suit that always fall off, and at that time LEGO said it was a faulty batch or something, however then later the same element appeared in the Parisian Restaurant, and it has the same problem. I was able to change the ones on the Exo-Suit by buying another, stronger batch on BrickLink. And for the Parisian Restaurant I'm using blu-tack to keep up the lights in the balcony. Such a shame. We shouldn't be needing to use blu-tack or glue to keep LEGO elements together. :(

    They're falling off precisely because the mold is worn out. So this part certainly needs a new mold
