    Third row center is probably from #75002. For the little ones, check out the Star Wars advent calendars. I'm still pondering the large circle thingy. It seems familiar.

    Ah hah! I think the big circle is from #8086!

    This is part #4515. I don’t know how to look for parts with pictures on it. I’m trying to find out which set this belongs in. Thank you.

    ^ That's from #8161. I just recognised the helmet as being Speed Racer and there's only four of those sets.

    #8161. Speed Racer sub-theme of Racers theme. I don't know how to look up snickered/printed parts either! But I recognized the figure. Which is weird because I don't have any of the sets, and I don't think I ever watched the show.

    Thank you guys. I’m not familiar with the Speed Racer theme from Lego. I will look this up. Thanks.

    If you search Bricklink for "4515*" you will get the stickered parts in the results - the asterisk is a wildcard character representing any string of text, so any part that begins with 4515 and is followed by extra characters will be a valid result.

    I think the asterisk wildcard string only works on the last characters on Bricklink, I've not had success using it at the beginning or in the middle of a search string.

    I also tested searching "live sticker" and it was one of only 4 items that came up. I've found anything that has a word on it, you can search that word and "sticker" or "pattern" depending on if it's a sticker or a print. It seems to have fits now and then, but usually narrows it down pretty quickly.

    Yep, that's good too. Both approaches get tricky if it's something like a 1x2 tile, but you can then select in the piece's colour in the results page to narrow it down further.

    I'm at a loss here gang. Searched Minifig legs
    assembly, decorated with both "claws" & "talons". I still think it's Chima, but my searching led me to Nexo Knights which I'm totally unfamiliar with.

    BTW, dont tell me outright; let's make this fun. Give me a hint.

    Hint: Newer than Chima, Home grown theme and only came in one set.

    Answer below if you get stuck.

    I focused on the arm and hand color of the torso and it didn’t take long :)

    @Astrobricks- I did that too! :(

    Dark blue hand & sand blue arm?

    I think they're cracks (he's a rock dude) but do look like claws. Most descriptions tend to be illogical.

    Hi guys,
    Glad to be acquainted with all of you. I'm also looking for a famous artist to place a technic according to my wishes. 
    I am also looking forward to learning from you.
    many thanks

    ^Links to Lepin site...

    Are you wanting to know what specific Technic set Lepin copied?

    Hi everyone. 
    Can anyone identify this part?  It was in with a Hawkeye minifigure.  I'm not sure if is supposed to be something or if it is a faulty moulding.  It looks a bit  like the handle from a katana.

    eww.

    Yes I would say that used to be something or was meant to be...

    Hi guys, the numbers on the bottom doesn’t seem to show up on the parts list. One is 321B0. The other is 318B0. Anybody familiar with these?
  • bandit778bandit778 Docking Bay 94. Member Posts: 2,133
    @Legojack10231.
    These are magnet stands used primarily for Minifigure display sets. 
    Part number 74188c01 on Bricklink.

    If you search bricklink for magnet, it’s one of only 29 results under parts.

    Got this little build sent to me in a care package. Wondering if its part of a set or polybag. Bricks seem to be older.

    I also got that Santa in a care package- in December 1987! I had just reported for duty at Fort Campbell, Kentucky and wasn't able to go home for Christmas. (But I had been home for Thanksgiving.)

    Can somebody help me find the part number for the green part here (plate for scale)? I can't seem to find one this size in another set to compare.

  • benbacardibenbacardi EnglandMember Posts: 595
    @pxchris Thank you! That's interesting, then - the part code in the instruction booklet isn't the same as the one you linked to. Bricklink says that's 6172469, the instruction booklet I have says 6293393 (which is why I asked on here—I couldn't find it on Bricklink.) Why would that be the case?
  • CCCCCC UKMember Posts: 18,994
    If there is a break of a number of years, sometimes parts comeback with a new part number. That part in lime had a break between 2012 and 2017, so this might have been enough to have a new number assigned to it.

    Ah, but this part is different to those listed in the instructions from a 2017 set. Would only 3 years be enough?
  • stluxstlux LuxembourgMember Posts: 2,341
    Rebrickable has 4 Element ID's listed here. Seems like they have gone through some moulds for this part over the past 2 decades.

    That hole in the side can be a real pain in the arse. When building the most recent carousel (which has a lot of these parts), half of them had the hole on one side and half had the hole on the other. I was kinda relieved at the time but wondered if Lego specifically supplied them like this and made them in pairs. I'm pretty sure I've heard of other people who didn't get half and half so still not sure if I just got lucky with the carousel.

    Got a bit of a challenging request. I had a basic Lego set as a kid, I think it was Universal Basic Set 4 released by Samsonite in Canada around the late 70's/Early 80's. Either on the box art or something was a build of what I can only describe as a multi-unit tree house.  I had built it and it was always one of my favourite when I was a kid.

    I found my old Lego set in my parents' basement but it had been partially disassembled to fit into a shoebox and I can't for the life of me remember how it goes together. Here's an image of the pieces. Anyone else recognize this and have a photo of a completed build? My childhood nostalgia would thank you immensely!

    Hey everyone, I found this minifgure on minfigs.me and I was wondering if the headpiece is a custom piece, or if it comes from a particular set/figure.  I've spent an hour or more looking at Bricklink and I couldn't find it.  It's likely there, and after looking for so long, my eyes might have just glazed over. :)

    Even though the website says “made from genuine Lego parts”, I think this must be a custom piece.  I looked through every headpiece/hat part on BL and found nothing.  I thought maybe Prince of Persia or Pharaoh’s Quest, but nothing there either...

    Minifigs.me does use custom parts. I made a couple of orders from them or bought at toy fairs before. I’m not sure whether the parts come from a specific other supplier like Brickarms though.
  • KungFuKennyKungFuKenny Deep in the Heart of TexasMember Posts: 1,319
    I think I found it!  Brick forge sells a turban that looks very similar to the one in the pic...

    A little hard to compare but I think it’s the same one...

    Thanks for the help everyone, much appreciated.  @KungFuKenny that does look like the same piece to me.
  • AstrobricksAstrobricks Minnesota, USMember Posts: 3,293
    I looked for the printed slope brick on BL and couldn’t find that either.
  • red237red237 Member Posts: 296
    This is the best place I thought to put this question - does anyone know of a current set that has smooth tires in it?  Size and center can be anything, just smooth and no tread. Thanks!

    Don't think it is but just to check it's not something like a weird helmet attachment I haven't seen before... is this one LEGO?
