    If only that head was brown, I could make me a cyborg :(

    @CCC, it is Emperor Palpatine in these magnets and keychain. However both of those have black hands and are glued...
  • scrumperscrumper UKMember Posts: 323
    @ColoradoBricks If you have them to view you'll know best but the brickset images for those do not match what @CCC has posted. You cant see the neck clasp properly but the printing lower down is definitely different.
  • CCCCCC UKMember Posts: 17,592
    Also the waist band tucks in on the other side. It is definitely not them. The clasp is also quite different.
  • ColoradoBricksColoradoBricks Denver, CO, USAMember Posts: 1,640
    yeah, sorry, should not look at those before I am fully wake up, that will teach me that checking brickset is the first thing I do in the morning :)

    The head belongs to the Overborg in #70722 Overborg Attack.

    So (finally!) a part to stump everyone. It makes me even more sure that it is an unreleased part yet to appear.

    I can see similarities to Palpatine, but also to ringwraiths. So I'm hoping it is the torso of a Witch King. < \ wishfulthinking >
  • scrumperscrumper UKMember Posts: 323
    So, where did you get it?
  • oldtodd33oldtodd33 Denver 4800 miles to BillundMember Posts: 2,407
    @ccc I know you are an experienced Lego man yourself, but does it say LEGO on top of the neck? I assume so, but I'm doing my due diligence here.

    Judging from the neck printing, it would have to be made by Lego in Europe, not China. The torso does have play wear on it, so it's been around for a while. Hmmm, well you have me stumped. Maybe a misprint, I haven't looked for that clasp on all of the other Lego torsos yet.
  • CCCCCC UKMember Posts: 17,592
    It's definitely real, and definitely a European made piece.

    It's from a reliable parts source.
  • CCCCCC UKMember Posts: 17,592
    PS it's not playwear. It's my dirty thumb print and a very bright desk light that is showing up very slight dings from being in an envelope with a few other parts taken on my crummy phone camera in my hotel room.
  • CCCCCC UKMember Posts: 17,592
    I also got a nice new girl's torso. A horse rider wearing a rosette. I'm not sure what set it will be part of.
  • oldtodd33oldtodd33 Denver 4800 miles to BillundMember Posts: 2,407
    Maybe you will get your wish. It definitely looks Star Wars/Hobbit/LOTR.
  • CCCCCC UKMember Posts: 17,592
    It's the tan hands that are confusing me. If they were black, I'd think Witch King. I don't think we're due another Palpatine, but if he had a pale / tan face (similar to Grima) this torso might make sense. I guess I'll have to wait and see.
  • scrumperscrumper UKMember Posts: 323
    ^^^ #10674 ?
  • CCCCCC UKMember Posts: 17,592
    That's right, thanks. I hadn't seen that one and I'm not so hot on these sets. My daughter will love it, although I'm replacing hands with fleshies and it'll have a head and hair to match hers.

    This is definitely Star Wars/Palpatine related. Compare the clasp: http://www.theforce.net/swtc/exhibit/costumes.html

    (google "palpatine clasp" for more images)

  • CCCCCC UKMember Posts: 17,592
    Yes it does seem more like a Palpatine one than a LOTR one, so we will probably be getting a new Palpatine at some stage. In that case, it also seems likely that he will come with a tan head, to match the hands.

    If true, it's about time. I've never understood why the previous Palpatines were gray. Yeah, his skin is a bit pallid but he's not a zombie.

    The timing is interesting, though, since we've just seen all of the late summer sets. Could it be the May 4th promo?

    Palpatine it is!

    Nice find! Thanks.

    I wonder if they will be lbg hands or tan. This one is definitely tan.
  • adventure_aladventure_al Scotland Member Posts: 243
    Still looking to identify parts of this fig on left (it's not the Spider-Man torso as originally thought)

    Also head and hair?
  • mressinmressin Lego City... erm LondonMember Posts: 843
    ^ It's from the Exo-Force theme.
  • Bluefairy_56Bluefairy_56 Member Posts: 320
    I have a few things here I would like help with identifying.
    Lego Fox, he is larger than normal Minfigs:

    Lego Astronaut, I have no idea where his hands went:

    And this Lego set:

    These are the Minifigs I think go with it:

    Thanks for looking.
  • scrumperscrumper UKMember Posts: 323
    The fox is from the Fabuland theme.
    The astronaut is from the Classic Space theme (Benny from the LEGO Movie) and should have blue hands and airtanks.
  • Bluefairy_56Bluefairy_56 Member Posts: 320
    Thanks @scrumper. I definitely remember a Fabuland set, the fox is called Freddy Fox, but none of the sets look familiar.

    And no it's not Benny from the Lego Movie. The face is different and the picture on the front of the suit is also different. This astronaut is between 25-30 years old. I tried looking but I can't find it. Unless they revamped him, I don't know.

    But thank you.

    Anyone want to guess on the set...I am not sure but it looks to me like it's from a space or robot set, with all the electronic stickers on the plates of heaps of the parts. Plus the astronauts that came with it.
  • Bluefairy_56Bluefairy_56 Member Posts: 320
    Just checked eBay, yep he is Benny, but from the 1980's so they did update him.

    Ok two down one to go.
  • Bluefairy_56Bluefairy_56 Member Posts: 320
    Ok after searching over a 1,000 space, robot, astronaut eBay pictures I found it. It is Recon Robot #6889-1 I have all the wheels too, I just wasn't sure if they went with it or not. There are 135 pieces, so I think I would have roughly 80% of it, as I recognise a lot of the pieces still in the Lego crate of old pieces. So I will have to get a complete list of pieces, Bricksets list isn't complete.

    Anyone know where I can look to get one?
  • Big_SalBig_Sal UKMember Posts: 37
    There are definitely some parts from a Spyrius set, most likely #6949 Robo Guardian and also #6835 Saucer Scout. If you switch the heads on the minifigs you'll have the Spyrius robot and some of an Aquasharks minifig.

    But there are other parts there that aren't from any of those sets.
  • Bluefairy_56Bluefairy_56 Member Posts: 320
    I just looked yep you are right @Big_Sal‌ I have 10 of the wheels for the set #6949 and the other pieces which #6889 doesn't have. Also the clear blue hexagonal top also fits with this other set. I appear to have all these pieces for this set, which is great. I wondered why I had so many of some of the pieces.

    Now I just need to download the instruction manuals or try and get them from eBay.

    Thank you both for all the help :)

    I have no idea what they are. If you guys can help me ID them and give me a rough price of them I would appreciate it.

    They are mainly mixtures of random parts. Fleshie hands with yellow heads gives a good hint of this.

    There is Senator Palpatine on the left, some Star Wars parts, some aquaraiders (the Neptune fork symbol on two different parts shows those parts go together).
  • abeszabesz Member Posts: 2
    I appreciate it. I have so many pieces for LEGOs I have no idea what to do with it all.
  • murphquakemurphquake Member Posts: 651
    Dark red with blonde hair on left is Chancelor Palpatine http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?M=sw243, blue guy on right is a Senate Commando http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?M=sw244 Both came in set #8039. The white fig with the orange printing and classic space logo is http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?M=mm004 from Mars Mission but his helmet is on the minifig next to him with short legs, which is this young Anakin http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?M=sw159 but without his head or hair

    This is a bit out of the box, but any idea what size tire is being used here?
    Witch's cauldron fire technique

    Leprechaun

    I tried the one I have but it's a lot smaller. http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=61481
  • ColoradoBricksColoradoBricks Denver, CO, USAMember Posts: 1,640
    @andhe, this is this one usually used with this wheel

    Isn't he talking about the inverted tire making the "kettle"?

    Maybe Tire 20 x 30 balloon medium. Sorry, I don't have one to try.

    Awesome. Thanks @ColoradoBricks‌.

    (If any in the UK has one to trade... let me know!)

    The medic with the glasses isfrom the 7903 set, but he's missing his blue helmet.
  • murphquakemurphquake Member Posts: 651
    @cody6268 is right, i had to get that set for them as I'm trying to collect everyone with a star of life... if only the ones on the pics of the set that TLG released with different figs shown would pop up! was working my way through the others on BL last night but was falling asleep at the keyboard adn had to give up

    One of these studs is not like the other...

    Have you seen this before?
  • Bluefairy_56Bluefairy_56 Member Posts: 320
    @CupIsHalfEmpty‌ I'm not sure what the difference is, other than they are inverted sloping roof bricks. They appear the same to me.
  • plasmodiumplasmodium UKMember Posts: 1,936
    ^^I know I have seen some variations on the thickness of the plastic used in the studs on those pieces before. It's usually just due to age.
  • mressinmressin Lego City... erm LondonMember Posts: 843
    On the rightmost stud, the "Lego" printing seems to be misaligned. No, I've never seen s.th. like that before.
    (Also makes me wonder how that can happen. It must be an error in the mold. Wouldn't that be very obvious?)
