it does strike me as an odd purpose for a special part, I wonder if it's partly from the reports of trans 1x1 round bricks cracking minifig legs when left in - not a problem I've had myself but sure I've seen it discussed here. the big tell on that will be if the next Iron Man figure uses this setup too.
Of course, there'll be plenty of other applications as well, both in terms of aesthetics and functionality. Just like the 1x2 plate can be used for things a 1x1 plate wouldn't suffice for, this part will be useful for situations where a pair of "Apollo studs" just wouldn't do.
Anyone know this torso? It's popped up as a new part.
From #70917 The Ultimate Batmobile
I'm sure it is a nice set. But I just see more variety in caveman hair!
A recolor but I thought it looked cool. It looks like Lloyd is holding sand green shurikens?
This is from the photo posted in the nexo knights general discussion thread. I noticed this silver curve piece in the back and found the unreleased piece to be interesting. Might it be a early version of https://brickset.com/parts/6131732/roof-tile-8x6-45deg-w-cut?
(And a "Forever Sorting 2" DVD. Honestly, that's making me want to buy the set more)
It is a non-licensed system part, so it will probably come to replacement parts soon enough, and get used in other sets.
Now, if it were a sticker like in #4702 or #4721 that just had a picture of what its reflection was supposed to be, rather than an actual mirrored surface, then I'd agree — not mirrors. But these stickers seem to have an actual mirror finish.
Its a sticker, not a part per se. Now, before you go on your hour long dissertation about how a sticker can be a part, I do not recall seeing any references to stickers in this thread, only plastic pieces. Now, maybe I'm wrong about that (and stickers have been referenced in this thread) and if so, then I will apologize. However, to my recollection, this thread is actually LEGO pieces that are new, otherwise we would be seeing every sticker sheet that is in a new set in this thread.
Is there any reason in particular that there is a reason for less chrome or am I imagining this shortage in chrome?
Nevertheless, wish that there were more chrome available.
Would love to get this figure among other chrome pieces.
My understanding is that it's mainly down to price. Not only does the process of producing chrome parts involve more steps and somewhat more expensive materials than an average LEGO piece, but in many cases chrome parts actually have to use different molds than their non-chromed counterparts, since the chrome finish changes the part's thickness.
Plus, LEGO just has way more options for metallic colors than they did back in the 90s when chrome parts were more common. Back then, the options for gold and silver treasures were a choice between chrome silver or grey, or between chrome gold and bright yellow. But these days LEGO has some richly-colored, reasonably consistent "pearl" colors that can be used a lot more freely, as well as painted or lacquered metallic colors. Chrome is no longer the only way to make a part feel shiny or special.
Got it. First, you called me out for critiquing someone saying the mirror sticker was a new part. NOW, because your mirror argument is invalidated, you switch to the fact I failed to mention the wavy panel part was not new.
Sure, I did not mention the panel itself, but did I ever mention the wavy panel was NOT a new part? No. I figured people would understand I was only talking about the sticker, but I forgot some people need everything spelled out for them.
I'm getting a strong feeling you resent me, even though nothing in this conversation has merited the "hour-long dissertation" you seem to think I'll take any excuse to make. You made a confusing statement, I questioned it, and you doubled down. Nothing I've said here has been the least bit malicious and I'm frustrated that you feel the need to talk down to me.
Doubled down on what? I simply said that the mirrors are stickers on a curvy panel, you are the one that took it down the rabbit hole.
I refuse to get involved any further in one of your spinning debates (seriously, get into politics, I think you would be great). Yeah, I made a comment speaking towards about how pedantic you can be.. Am I wrong? I dunno, I think most who have seen your commenting on the forum can attest to this.
Sorry I did not think, and write to account, of every possible outcome of a comment because you would read it at some point. "IMO (and I'm guessing the opinion of many in this thread) stickers are not parts; the curvy part is a new part." Happy? There, you won the internet. Congrats.
