Pick a Brick Help?

LewisBLewisB CambridgeMember Posts: 5
Hi all, apologies if this is in the wrong place.

I'm trying to use Pick A Brick to buy some more window pieces. I've found the "Frame 1x4x6" but can't seen to locate the glass piece to put inside it. 

I've found it on Brickset (6256058) but no matter what I search in Pick A Brick I can't find it! I've tried searching for "pane", "glass", "window", and by the Brickset number, and searching all 'Transparent' pieces.

Are they unavailable on Pick A Brick, or am I missing something super obvious? Any help would be appreciated!

    These two seem to be all that comes up currently.

    You are correct, they are not available on the Pick a Brick section and are also currently out of stock on Bricks and Pieces.
    Your best bet for picking these up are www.bricklink.com or www.brickowl.com.

    Both sites have their good points and bad points but if you've not used either of the sites before I would probably recommend Brickowl over Bricklink for ease of use although there is a larger selection of sellers on Bricklink to choose from but postage costs and extras on a store invoice can sometimes be surprising if you 've not done your homework.

    I would also recommend spending a bit of time putting together a list of parts that you want and maybe set up a wanted list before taking the plunge on buying.
    It can really take the shine off a project when you realise the buyer you've just received parts from has the other parts you want and you now have to pay another round of shipping to get them (numerous bouts of postage and packing can make an already expensive hobby really expensive, very quickly).

    Ah, I'm glad it wasn't just me being dense then! 
    Thanks for the confirmation, and the advice. I guess I'll take the plunge and try out Brickowl.
    Thanks again!

    I was going to suggest Bricks and Pieces, it is on LEGO's customer service page. There are three options on the page; Missing Bricks, Broken Bricks, and Buy Bricks. Only use the first two options if your new set was actually missing parts or if you broke a part while building. 
    The "Buy Bricks" section has many more parts available than Pick-a-Brick. Unfortunately I just checked for the glass you need and it is out of stock. 

    So I'll second bandit778 and say check out BrickOwl.

    Haha just my luck, thanks! 
    I'm navigating my way around BrickOwl now, I'm sure once I get used to it I'll see a few paychecks disappear!

    I would second using Bricks and Pieces wherever possible. Unfortunately you're out of luck on the glass, and there seem to be a number of elements that are similarly out of stock.  I think B&P is rising in popularity; it was Lego's best kept secret for a while as it is much more user friendly with a much bigger selection that PaB. Plus, B&P orders now qualify for VIP points, so time your purchases wisely for the best bang for your buck.
