The Internet is currently buzzing following the discovery of a 1x5 plate in the main image of forthcoming Vidiyo set, 43115 The Boombox.
Odd-length 1-wide plates are currently restricted to 1- and 3-long so the introduction of a 1x5 is a game-changer. Until now, when one has been called for in a model, a 32124 TECHNIC ROTOR, 2 BLADES (aka 5-long Technic plate) has been pressed into service, but it is not always suitable, owing to the lack of a stud in the middle and rounded ends.
It will certainly make it much easier to build vehicles in odd widths which can end up being a bit fragile at the moment. Is it a piece you have always wanted? What will you use them for?
