The new tea pot will be used for miss Potts in Belle's enchanted castle!
This 1x1 rounded corner tile, used as a watermelon slice in the #41134 Heartlake Performance School will certainly be useful. Has anyone found it without printing in other images?
In #70594 The Lighthouse Siege, it definitely looks like there are 1x1 plates with a horizontal bar and rounded corners used to make the angled corner roof details. A great part for hinging elements at an angle in a small space.
The same set also has a new chain element with a stud on one side and something else on the other. Not sure if it is supposed to be a bell and/or if it has a way to connect to other elements.
There are many other new elements, but these are some of the ones I am most interested in. Has anyone else noticed a new element that they can't wait to get? Perhaps you've noticed something I haven't yet. For me, the best part about new sets is discovering the new elements, some of which I have wanted for years beforehand, and thinking about what I can do with them.
I wouldn't be at all surprised if unprinted versions of the watermelon slice show up in either future mixels or the next modular (like the Nexo Knights shield pieces in Brick Bank)
good thing when new parts are that small, you can often expect spares of them in sets :-)
And yes, there's definitely some 1x1 plates with horizontal bar and curved corners in that set.

Also, I like the new book dual pieces that allow a 1x2 deco tile to be snapped in place inside.
Here's an unexpected recolor. We got the 1x2 channel bricks 2(?) years ago, and now we can build houses in tan with a full roll up garage door.
Here's a resurrection of an infamous old non-System part. The old one used pin connectors, which were excessively stressed. The new one appears to use axle connectors.
Someone spotted this already, but here's a clearer picture of the new 1x1 with handle on end
This should be a popular recolor as well
I guess 2016 is the year of the inverted baby bow, which adds several new colors including light and dark grays for the spaceship builders.
Quite a few other interesting tidbits if you want to page through them! http://brickset.com/parts/new-05-06-16
The 1/4 circle tile also comes in medium azure and 'lattice fruit pie' as well as watermelon:
and this seems to be sand blue, compare with other dbg part in the photo.
And then an interesting mini figure part:
I wonder if the scurrier models are done or if they are going to be used for the Kobolds / Leprechauns in the new Elves sets.
looking at a couple of the others it looks like they might have the technic/constraction hands behind them (the same parts that are holding the weapons) so it might have a bar at the back, or could of be a mix like the other Nexo Knights shields
Is this big round part new?
To me it looks like the seam is at the 'top' of the hand.
There also appears to be some new sort of energy weapon part which could be useful for sci fi builds and a return of the galaxy squad egg parts in grey that look interesting too.
