    I'm not familiar with the set, but assuming it's this section


    Then from the pics at https://brickset.com/sets/21006-1 it looks like there isn't a 1x1 plate there?

    Maybe someone has played a prank on you and added it at some point to see how long it would take to notice? Any annoying siblings or trickster friends who giggle when they come in the room it's in or when you mention Lego? :)

    ^I'm going to say not LEGO. First, the smallest American Flag I can find is 1x2. Second, the quality of that print is really poor. Even if it says LEGO on the inside of the tile, it is likely a second hand print. 

    EDIT - after looking more closely, it looks to be a sticker? I still think the above applies. 
    Mystery solved. Hard to believe I did this ten years ago and that’s why I didn’t remember. Your comment jogged my memory. I DID print out a flag to fit a 1x1 tile and glued it onto it.

    Yes. See my previous message. I did it to myself and then forgot I even did it! This makes me feel REALLY old.

    Struggling to identify this skeleton's head from the boy's collection. I thought it was from Hidden Side but can't find it. Suggestions welcome. Cheers!

    Hello, I am looking for the set this part on the left of the picture came from. I cannot provide more because it is a listing i found online. It seems to be a raised base plate.
    Thanks

    I could be wrong as I'm not super well versed in raised baseplates, but the studs on that appear to be an off-brand. A few of the studs have small indents from the molding process that is indicative of MegaBloks or other like-brands. 
  • andheandhe UKMember Posts: 3,506
    Yeah the recessed studs point to non-lego.

    Here is the list of official lego raised baseplates https://www.bricklink.com/catalogList.asp?pg=1&catString=243&catType=P

    Can anyone help me figure out where this mask came from? I know it's a Bionicle mask, but when I look at Bricklink to find which set it came from, it only shows me the gray version. Where in the world did this lime green one appear??

    This turned up today, wife found it somewhere.  Doesnt show up on BL under "slope, decorated" or "brick, decorated" (just in case the sticker doesnt belong on a 2x8 45° slope)

    Looks to me like the sticker was meant for a 1x8 brick. Did you try “1x8 police”?

    @FowlerBricks It’s possible the lime green version came in a random mask pack as they did plenty of those back in the day such as #8530 and the full extent of the masks doesn’t seem to be fully documented.

    Ah, I see. The minor amount of info I can find labels the green variant as 'rare' and it costs about $20 to buy it

    The sticker looks like it comes from set #60141 Police Station

    Yep I see it on the yellow gate now. Guess the youngster I got the previous haul from liked to sticker-swap.

    I tried "police" in "brick, decorated" but not in "tile, decorated".

    Argh. I saw it but failed to realize the sticker is black and clear striped, not black and gray.

    Hi !
    I'm having a hard time reading the part number of this part I bought in a lot.
    It reads something like 26581 but it does not corresponds to the right part.
    I took the pictures with the minifig just to show the size ans that there is a pin to hold it in the minifg hand. The plastic of the part is a bit is soft.
    I think it comes from a theme I don't really know about!
    Thanks for your help!

    That’s from Ninjago (Hands of Time subtheme)…
    https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=28587pb04#T=C&C=84

    And it came in three sets:

    Picked up a box of Classic Space the other day (more info coming in brag thread later), and one piece in particular is throwing me off.



    Trans-yellow, removable black ends. 

    The box overall appears to have been really well taken care of...most of the instructions are pristine, finding most of the pieces to sets, very few broken pieces, etc. It did come with instructions for 6941 and 6954 which each include similar tubes, but in solid yellow according to Brickset and Bricklink. Rebrickable mentions that 6941 may have come with trans-yellow.

    The bends that are retained by the parts also seem in line with those 2 sets having been built and displayed for a long time.

    Anybody have insight on this? Color variations between production runs of sets?

    Here's a photo of a sealed Canada Samsonite #6941 with translucent hoses, so the inventory variation is genuine.

    Also, a search of eBay listings for the 6941 Battrax set does bring up examples with translucent tubes.

    My theory is that Lego likely had a bunch of the translucent sections left over and used those in the first runs of these sets, most likely for cost savings.
    As to why Bricklink does not list the translucent hoses as alternate parts, that can be explained as an artifact of Bricklink's set inventory verification process.

    Thanks for that.....I also thought to search eBay after posting this and saw some of those listings. 

    Now to continue sorting through the box to see what all is there

    @dvaupel - Here's verification that the #6954 Renegade also came with black/trans-yellow hoses.  This is a photo of a 6954 with sealed bags that I bought secondhand.  The hoses are in the center bag.
    The set came with a 1987 U.S. catalog (BL# c87us) and had "Hills" (defunct regional U.S. department store) price tags on its box.

    (I didn't mention checking this in the earlier post, as I wasn't sure that I've have time today or this weekend to dig out the set.)
