    I am already very grateful for some of the new parts we have gotten this year. Today I used the new 1x1x1 brick w/axle hole (73230) while redesigning the Magma Cube from set #21130. I wanted to make the "cube" (which was actually more of a rectangle) perfectly square while still keeping the cool function, which probably would have been impossible without the new part.

    I did wonder, but I couldn't find it on Bricklink.

    Edit: just found it. Apparently a heart-shaped plate is a 'round plate' on BL... I think that is a new colour for it though. The current one on there is Bright Green and that looks like normal Green.
    Nah, pretty sure that's also Bright Green. The curved brick also looks like the 1x2 one that previously appeared in Mos Eisley Cantina.

    There is a new 2x6 wedge plate in the Darth Vader Helmet. You can see it in The Rambling Brick's review.

    The leaked image of the Speed Champions Dodge double pack looks to have a black 4x6 tile for the Charger roof.

    Edit: on closer inspection I suspect it's actually a 6x6 tile. Boooo.

    Just noticed these in the new HP sets... are those new pieces or just recolours of a piece used in themes that I don’t follow?

    Both are 'old' pieces, personally Id guess they are both new colours though!

    What?! That's almost sacrilege! Why can't they just use a 1x2 and a 1x3? Those would have worked just as well.

    To keep us buying sets, of course! If they didn't make new parts, we could just download the instructions and build everything with parts we already own, except for minifigures, I suppose.

    That'd definitely work functionally. But using a 1x5 here looks a little cleaner than having a 1x2 and 1x3 with the bottoms exposed. My guess is the 1x5 might also have been designed more for small models (maybe sort of like the recent 5-wide Speed Champions polybag) where an extra layer of plates to lock a 1x2 and 1x3 together might be less preferable.

    Yay 1x5 plate! Id like to see a 1x14 or 1x16 plate, its so annoying the longest plate is 12 studs. Also perhaps some longer plates then 8.

    Side note, isnt a 1x5 the name American AFOLs have for an attractive woman who turns up at a Lego convention? (since its super rare or whatever??)

    I'm guessing 1*14 and higher don't exist for the risk of snapping in half under stress.

    It looks cleaner, as mentioned above. But also, haven't you ever had a situation where you needed 1x5 as using a 1x2 and a 1x3 wouldn't be structurally sound?

    Not just Americans, I've heard it used at Australian shows too.

    A 1x5 plate would make building in odd widths much easier.  Building in odd widths around a 1x3, 2x3, or 3x3 base can be fragile. Lego has already used the 1x5 Technic plate with an axle hole in the middle in many applications where the axle hole is unwanted, so clearly the set designers have been requesting this part for years.

    @Casper_vd_Korf Hey I know its a joke but I do like to make as many people aware as possible that the whole French cowardice thing was purely a lie made up by Americans around the time of the Iraq War in response to the French not getting involved.

    No it wasn't, it's a long-standing claim about the French which is difficult to date, but stretches back to WW1 at the very least, and possibly back to pre-Napoleon times. It's mostly nonsense of course, but for some reason us Brits in particular seem to enjoy saying it.

    I was actually taught at school that the Dunkirk evacuations were possible because the Brits had rigged up 1,000s of rifles in such a way that the morning dew settling on the trigger would be enough to discharge them. I always thought this had to be nonsense, why would it be assumed that the Germans would press their attack at that quite precise moment? There's probably some truth in it, but the bigger truth is that many French soldiers sacrificed themselves to allow the British troops, many of their French compatriots, and smaller numbers of other free European troops to escape almost certain death so that the fight against Hitler would continue.

    ps French fries are actually Belgian. So they may not be cowards but they are Edison-esque in many of their claims to fame.

    Although it was resurgent then, the stereotype was around long before that. There were American - French disagreements during the Cold War too where it became a popular view from the quick surrender in WW2, despite many French fighting on.

    @Aleydita Actually it was us Aussies who did that rifle trick at Gallipoli. Its quite possible some of the British troops knew about the trick and tried it at Dunkirk.

    Are these rounded 4+ bases new too? We’ve had some interesting rounded base pieces in Mario and plates in Vidiyo. Personally I love them for more interesting stating points for vignette type builds.

    About the 1x5 plate... I have mixed feelings about this. For sure: many times I wanted to have something uneven (brick or plate) available for a specific build. But I always found it a challenge to find a solution for my 'building problem' in some way or another.
    What if LEGO would supply us with an (almost) unlimited array of 1x5, 1x7, 2x5, 7x9 -and so on- bricks / plates / tiles? Personally I think that would completely take away all the challenges and pleasure I find in making my own creations and make them good looking, sturdy and within system.
    I regularly make buildings that are not 10x12 or 6x8 and so on. Here's a 9x11 example of an apartment I made. What would be the benefit of using a 1x5 tile here?

    Came here to post about those. I'm virtually certain they're new. I guess they realised how useful the banana gears are for stuff which isn't gear related, so wanted something similar without gears on. I suspect these are a bit smaller though. I'm going to christen them 'Technic half circle liftarms'.

    I tried to think of a snappier name, but half circle or half moon is almost certainly what they'll become known as.

    Definitely a full circle from what's visible in that picture. There are 4 pin holes and two cross-axle holes. The name better have "ring" in it. But knowing Lego, they'll probably call it a sphere or something ;-)

    I don't really understand this. If you want to challenge yourself by limiting builds to certain parts, then nobody is stopping you. Just don't buy or use 1x5 parts.

    Looks like a Pixar Cars recolor maybe.
