    They could use it to simplify some Speed Champions while creating more stability...If it weren't pink. Ferarri doesn't allow  pink cars, and this immediately made me think of the F40. (Why does ns&bp or something like that show up when I tag somebody by clicking on their name in the drop down?)

    I looked for surprise pet in the database but found nothing :(
    Turns out the series is called Magic Cube and starts at #41400 as you can see in the pic above.

    I wasn't sure what the series was called either.

    I feel bad for Friends animal completionists, at a minimum you're going to have buy 20 of the pods to get all the different colored animals. That's if you're lucky enough to get a unique animal each time. And there will be a second series...

    Maybe LEGO have been reading this thread ...

    I’ve found @ing someone using the drop down seldom works smoothly. I usually have to clean it up before posting.

    And now three days later the series name has changed to Play Cube in the database.
    UNLESS you type magic cube in the search box, in which case they all show up as Magic Cube still.

    The new Douglas minifig in #70429 doesn't use the traditional skeleton legs. They're new parts, that are slotted into a pair of boots (has Lego ever made minifig footwear before?).


  • BumblepantsBumblepants DFWMember Posts: 6,368
    @klinton those have been used in the Ninjago skeletons previously

    And later in silver and titanium metallic for the Squirebots in Nexo Knights!

    I do find it interesting that Lego reintroduced the white and black version for Douglas but didn't do so for the revamped skeleton baddies from last year's Ninjago Legacy sets (opting for classic skeleton legs instead).

    I have a bunch of those skeleton boot legs in my collection. I had no idea what they were at first.
  • gmonkey76gmonkey76 ChicagoMember Posts: 1,570
    They were also in a couple of the Pirates of the Caribbean sets.

    On the subject of those skeleton legs with boots, I suppose it might be worth pointing out WHY they must have opted for those in this set. Apart from making skele-Fuego slightly more distinctive than an ordinary skeleton (in addition to the cape and helmet), they also allow him to better slot into the 1x2 panel piece that is used in the plane set, originating from Friends sets as a way to hold them in vehicles since unlike minifigures they don't have anti-studs on the backs of their legs. The same applies to minifigure skeletons, whose only anti-studs are on the base of their feet. These legs' original use in the first year of Ninjago was slightly similar, since the more minifig-like footprint helped the skeleton baddies to slot into the molded spinners better.

    I am a little curious how tight a fit it is for El Fuego, since unlike standard figs or mini-dolls, the legs of skeletons are separate from the hips/torsos and as such I'd worry he might fit in more loosely. It'd be disappointing if he risked falling out of his stunt plane if it did a stunt like a barrel roll!

    EDIT: I just realized that another possible reason might have to do with making it easier for the app to detect him as a minifigure, despite his skeletal silhouette being different. I don't have the app or the figure so can't confirm this.

    He does fit rather loosely, actually. It's kinda negated by his cape though. If you tuck his cape into the cockpit, then he'll stay put through barrel rolls. If you add a copilot in the gunner seat, it's even more secure. :p

    Another article on The Brothers Brick today looks at the new Nissan GT-R Speed Champions set ( #76896 ) and some of the new parts used in the 8 stud wide construction...

    It is probably a lot more durable that way, because the parts needs to carry more weight now.

    Was eagerly anticipating the new sets showing up on B&P, which they now have- but, sadly, minus most of the interesting new parts.

    Same here. Given that BnP isn't normally open this time of year, I have no idea when they update the stock for the new parts.

    Yeah, there's no pressing need for new colours, just get on with the (updated) classic colours. After the wonderful opportunity of white and yellow, I also would like an opportunity to buy loads of classic blue and red spacemen.

    No bluebird though. Still waiting for those white ones to show up cheap (cheep?) somewhere!

    I think you will need to call CS to get the little birds as they do not appear on BnP.

    We're also getting two new colours - transparent blue and pink opalescent. See New Elementary for more details.

    New window pieces in the new stadium set?


    I’m not convinced that’s a ‘window’. It looks like Brick, Modified 1 x 3 x 2 with Curved Top. Design ID 33243 in Trans.Clear. 

    EDIT oh wait it’s 1x4 at the base, I’ve got that wrong!

    Now that I look at it more closely, I think the dimensions are 1x4x2 and 2/3.  It fits  under design id 15967.

    Yes exactly, as soon as I posted I realised this was the next size up and a new mould. Thanks and sorry for confusing things 🙈

    It's not up on the Lego image server yet, but here's the picture from the instruction book.  The official TLG description is: BRICK 1X4X3, OUTSIDE HALF BOW, NO. 1

    That is going to be an incredibly useful window brick. No more need for window builds 2 bricks deeps, that is, an arched brick placed in front of an ordinary window.

    I just noticed this guy in the new landspeeder:
    Design number 33492

    Now, what bugs me is the BS database (and presumably TLG) calls this a “MINI HAT”. But I’ve looked at all the sets it is in and it is not used as a hat in ANY of them. How the heck did it get that name? At least BL calls it a cone.

    I was thinking of starting a thread on stupid part names :-/

    IIRC the more dome-shaped droid head for BB-8 is also classified as a hat. My best guess as to why both would be described as that is their similarity in size and shape to the earlier fez piece.

    Yeah this piece started out as a BB unit head hence the name.
