    I know they came in old train cars/construction equipment, but my knowledge ends there.

    Definitely in 662 Dump Truck from 1976.  Don't know if they appeared anywhere else though.

    I remember having these parts back in the late 70's and early 80's for my trains. They were used to make hoppers on my freight train set. The two prongs sticking up sit on top of a regular 2x4 (for example) and can tip way or the other. I'm sure someone will be able to find a pic of this in action.

    I know them from making appearances in sets #8848 (my first Technic set) and #856 - I'd not seen the top part either though, good to know there are other build options out there.

    Could be from:



    or:



    Both from 1976.

    @drdavewatford That yellow claw on 387 really takes me back, with it's little spring inside to make it snap shut. Surprised I never lost a finger in that thing, it was lethal!

    Was? It's been in a couple of recent sets - most recently in #60098 which is still available.

    @TigerMoth I'm in no way an expert on Lego and hadn't seen that part since my childhood, so (wrongly it would seem) assumed they no longer used it. Good to know that it's still around though. It'll be sitting in my mother's attic somewhere back in England. Some day I'll get back over there and rediscover all my old sets from back in the day.

    For many years it wasn't. What I meant was if you want... get!

    The same goes for the angled tipper ends - although when they reappeared it was without the pivot pins.

    It's a coincidence that piece was in that particular train set because I almost bought it from Amazon when it was on sale. It would have been a nice surprise to see that spring loaded claw again after nearly fourty years! I might still get it but I'm trying not to branch out into Lego trains just yet. It'll be another theme to distract me and drain my bank account.

    You guys are amazing, thank you all so much. These have been driving me crazy...

    There are a few other train pieces in the lot so that would make sense.

    Thank you again everyone.

    Are these pieces Lego?

    Middle bottom is from Ninjago 2013 sets, stone warrior helmet attachment. The two on the bottom left look like Playmobil beards to me. Top middle looks like it might be Lego, a harpoon piece, but i can't tell for certain from the picture. Top right is knex. Don't know about the rest

    Slight correction, middle bottom one is from Samurai X. The Stone Warrior ones have more wing-like "ears". Top middle is an Aquazone harpoon. Top middle-right is Ki Adi Mundi's forehead piece from LEGO Star Wars. The rest are hard to tell without a better photo.

    Ah, you're right, I just looked quickly, my mistake.

    Second to right bottom brown beard looks like https://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemIn.asp?P=15501&in=S

    Looks like a Chinese knockoff. Especially seeing bad molding and fit of the pieces
