    Can someone help identify this set please 
    I think that is from an educational mindstorm challenge kit. I have seen a lot on eBay that had some of the parts in your set and it was part of challenge where they had to create a vehicle to drive over obstacles. The lot i saw had the obstacles which looked more like a bridge and had a width about the perfect size to fit your vehicle. I looked for two hours and couldn't find the set anywhere.

    Ok so have joined this forum after seeing the Lego 4D Movie and Wildstyles Rollercoaster.

    Wondering are those parts real lego parts or just created for movie? I would have thought they would only use valid lego pieces.

    In the movie the rollercoaster looks like a Kynex type coaster, or is the best we got so far the Friends Amusement park.

    Thanks for excepting me to the site

    I'm trying to identify this "plant" piece.  It's in "The LEGO Neighbourhood book", in the Canal Ring House instructions (step 12 on page 199).  I can't find it on Bricklink.  Any thoughts?

    @Briking I would look for it under headgear accessories; I don't think it's a plant originally, but one of those things that fits into the clip on some of the hairpieces or headgear on the Islander characters...

    EDIT: Yep, here it is: http://rebrickable.com/parts/87696/

    X-Wing (2005), Professor Quirrel (torso, head, and turbin), Mcdonalds Racers, Chamber of Secrets, ball socket probably from Dume and Nivawk, hubcap from Speed Champions, Sandtrooper Pauldrons, Gringots safe, Bohrok Krana holder, 2006 minifigure scale Bionicle Hahli/Vezok torso and legs.
  • CaptainRogersCaptainRogers Greensboro, NCMember Posts: 711
    Thanks man! Helps a lot. I never got into Harry Potter or the original run of Bionicle as a kid. As for the hubcap, I don't think it is Speed Champions... It is way too big, plus I have all the SC sets and it doesn't show up there. Of course, it might not even be lego - I got quite a mixed bag of stuff.

    The yellow sticker-ed parts are from http://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?S=8143-1#T=I along with the hub cap.
  • davetheoxygenmandavetheoxygenman Colorado, USAMember Posts: 190
    @CaptainRogers - could it be this one?  

    http://brickset.com/parts/design-58088

    There looks to be 3 sizes of  18mm, 36mm and 56mm.  The link above is for the 56mm version.

    Sorry, I meant Speed Racers (awful theme...)

    1st post so please shift this if I've done this wrong.

    My boys are avid Lego heads (mortified when Chima was discontinued)

    Can anyone point me in the right direction identifying stickers that are still on their backing sheets?  Twin 1 rushes to complete the set and the stickers get shelved.  I know there is a set of numbers on each sheet but I can't work it out.

    @twin_boys_mum  Go to Bricklink, on the sticker sheet at the bottom is a printed number. Enter the number into the search area and you'll find what you're looking for.

    if you head over to bricklink you can search for the numbers on the sticker sheets (long one like the below example)

    set number 70143 uses sticker sheet marked with: 11704/6075178
    to find the set from the sheet I searched "Sticker 11704"

    alternatively you can search by set number, and match the sticker sheet to the set as it will be listed as a part.

    lastly if you have a list of set numbers, or sticker sheet numbers I'm sure one of us can run through bricklink for you pretty quick.

    Fab.  It looked like the numbers were too long to relate to sets.  I think I understand now.  Cheers.

    Found a boat hull from #7207 . There is a clip on the bottom, I'm guessing it's for a ballast weight.
    Can someone point me towards the item that this clip is designed for please?
  • SprinkleOtterSprinkleOtter Member Posts: 2,731
    ^ A boat motor.

    I've got that #7207 hull around here somewhere, never built it because mine is missing the grey insert. The instructions don't show any parts connecting to the bottom of the hull, but you could probably use the motor from #7906 with the #7207 hull.

    Just acquired a Bionicle lot.
    I am not familiar with the names and types, so please be kind and help out and identify what you see!

    Thanks in advance!


  • datsunrobbiedatsunrobbie West Haven , CTMember Posts: 1,437
    That's quite a jumble of parts :)
    I usually track down Bionicle by browsing by color on Brickset and narrowing it down by looking at the Constraction parts. For instance, There's a lime green part in the upper right of picture#2. I started with "Bright Yellowish Green", then started looking at just Constraction parts and spotted it on the Body Shells Page. #7165 is the only set listed with that part. The head from #8910 is in the last picture.

    That was an easy one to track down. Just like the System sets, lots of parts get used in multiple sets, then there are oddball parts that only come in a few sets. Look for the oddball parts first, then pull all the parts to build that set out of the pile, then repeat. And don't hesitate to post pics of both the assembled sets and any more parts left unidentified.

    Thanks, @datsunrobbie.
    i actually found three Hero Factory torsos so they'll help me with this search.

  • BobflipBobflip Member Posts: 462
    I can see an 8901 in there, but a lot of the part/colour combinations only end up in a handful of sets. Blades, masks and arm/leg pieces are good to start with.
  • datsunrobbiedatsunrobbie West Haven , CTMember Posts: 1,437
    Also check out #8913 and #8943. There's a fairly large silver part, #4504965, in one pic that seems to only be in those two sets.

    Thanks for leading me to the identity of that little yellow axle with the hex end. I have one lone one and was almost sure it wasn't Lego.

    #8901 Hakann

    Hello, I'm considering purchasing a tub of Legos being sold online, but I'm curious what sets might be included in it.  There are three plates in the attached picture that should be easy to identify because of missing studs, but I can't find them via a search of BrickLink.  The three plates are the (1) the white one towards the left that is partially concelled by a multi-colored house construction, (2) the half-concealed yellow 6x? plate in the middle that looks like it may have studs only around the edge of one corner, and (3) the large gray plate to the right that is missing almost half of its studs on one side.  Thanks in advance.

    The yellow part is 6178 - Tile Modified 6x12 with studs on edges.  Appears in yellow in 4 sets (3826, 5846, 7685 and 4404).

    Maybe others can assist on the white and grey parts, but I suspect they are not Lego brand.

    That large dark gray baseplate has me a bit confused. I count that it's 36 x 26 studs? That seems potentially like Mega Bloks dimensions? However, I'm not a longstanding expert like so many here, so I could be completely wrong.
  • Switchfoot55Switchfoot55 The Northwest, USAMember Posts: 1,431
    I know we have some identifying already in the works with the above photo, but I'll throw some more in. 

    Any thoughts?
    Picture isn't the best, but it's what I was given. Based on the purple, I'm pretty sure I see most/all of $41553 Vaka-Waka Mixel. What about all those tan pieces strewn about? Some of the green look like another Mixel too. 

    There are obviously some non-Lego in the mix with the minion-esque figs in the top center. I'm hoping that means not a lot of other off-brand. 

    The guy I'm buying from buys storage lockers and sells the contents. I'm his exclusive Lego buyer, so even if the lot isn't great, I feel like I have to buy to keep the relationship in a good place. He only wants $2, which I figure the Mixel alone is worth. Plus I'm looking for a lot of tan currently. 
  • gt7319cgt7319c Atlanta, GAMember Posts: 15
    The doubts of Lego origins expressed by sdetsky and Switchfoot55 prodded me to do a Google image search for large gray Mega Bloks bases, and I believe I've confirmed the Mega Bloks origins of the plate in my picture.  See here:  https://shop.megabrands.com/en-us/shop/construction-toys/blok-squad/build-plate

  • Switchfoot55Switchfoot55 The Northwest, USAMember Posts: 1,431
    ^The most I looked and searched BL, the more I feared it was Mega Bloks. For $2, I'll probably still pull the trigger for the 1 or 2 mixels that are likely there. 

    Thanks!
  • datsunrobbiedatsunrobbie West Haven , CTMember Posts: 1,437
    ^If I saw it at the local thrift store for $2, I'd certainly buy it - I already have several of the related Minions sets, and I'm happy with them.
  • Switchfoot55Switchfoot55 The Northwest, USAMember Posts: 1,431
    The build itself looks fun. I know my son would LOVE to add a dinosaur to his city, be it Lego or Mega Blok. 

    I guess the idea of being a purist is understandable to me (I'm a purist in other things I collect). But due to the fact that 95% of my Lego purchases are for my son, I have to be realistic and just know that he doesn't care if they are Lego, MB, or some other non-pirated generic brand. ...though, would he really care if there were some Lepin bricks?
