    The part on top is 3183b and the part on the bottom is 3462. Both found on Bricklink. You should put these questions in the Master Thread for indentifying parts.

    What is this called? Also looking for part number and sets it may have been in. Also instructions for the sets it was in. Thanks!

    Thanks, how can I find the sets they are from?
  • oldtodd33oldtodd33 Denver 4800 miles to BillundMember Posts: 2,616
    Go to Bricklink.com and click on the catalog tab and enter the part numbers in the search field. On the right it will tell you that the parts came in x number of sets and click on that.

    ^^^ :)

    ^^ I was going by what the website said because everything you read on the internet is true. But I suppose they never said they themselves forged the parts, just that some professional did.
  • brickmaticbrickmatic Member Posts: 1,071
    @Bcj5_10 That looks like two parts. Specifically a Red Plate, Modified 1 x 4 with Towball Socket, Long, 2 Slots and a Red Plate, Modified 2 x 3 with Helicopter Rotor Holder. Not sure if they appeared joined together like that in any models, but it looks like the two parts did appear as parts in the same set on two occasions: #1056 and #599.

    @brickmatic - they are lego parts. I bought one to see. They spray paint the head yellow (from trans yellow) and of course print on them. high quality.
  • brickmaticbrickmatic Member Posts: 1,071
    ^Nice.
  • DaddyDeuceDaddyDeuce Member Posts: 272
    I wonder what kind of equipment is used to do printing like this, especially printing onto curved parts.
  • LegobrandonCPLegobrandonCP CanadaMember Posts: 1,918
    @Bcj5_10 The 2x3 plate is this. While the top rotor is this.

    I am busy sorting a 35lb lot of used lego. There are about ten partially built sets in the lot I can't identify as they are all made with fairly common pieces. Is there a way to search any of the Lego part databases for sets containing part xxxx AND part xxxx? If there isn't, I may be posting some pics here shortly...
  • plasmodiumplasmodium UKMember Posts: 1,944
    ^Not easily (that I know of). Most of the people here are quite happy to help (not to mention that half of them have a frighteningly encyclopaedic knowledge of Lego), so why not post it anyway.
  • oldtodd33oldtodd33 Denver 4800 miles to BillundMember Posts: 2,616
    ^^ Besides, it's fun guessing what they are.
  • beegeedeebeegeedee Galway, IrelandMember Posts: 380
    ^^^ try looking for an unusual piece in the build. It helps to track them down or at least reduce the number of sets when searching for it.
  • CupIsHalfEmptyCupIsHalfEmpty CanadaMember Posts: 547
    To answer my own question, I've been partially successful using rebrickable. Before I started, I didn't have any loose parts tied to my account. I added a couple pieces and then selected "build" only using my loose parts. It then came back with only a couple sets that use those exact combination of parts. I'm not sure how complete the database is over at rebrickable, but it definitely has potential.

    p.s. Don't worry I have lot's of weird parts I can't identify and will post them here in the next couple days for your enjoyment.
  • plasmodiumplasmodium UKMember Posts: 1,944
    I was wondering whether Rebrickable would work, I was just trying to think how you would use it. ^That's a useful idea, though.

    @starwarfan77 Looks like some/most of the parts are from #6211.
  • JezzatheshedJezzatheshed Member Posts: 159
    Need a bit of help here.
    No picture for this but I will do my best to describe what I have.
    Bought a box of lego with some instruction books, built up a police station,police lorry and several smaller creator sets, I am left with a snake made up of tan and grey Bionicle elbows linking eight body segments a definate head and tail and a fat middle in red/dark red (as if the snake is digesting a meal). 90% of the left over elements are red or dark red (the star wars colour) together with 4 caramel colour 3x8 wedge plates. Has anyone an idea what this could be- Ive been searching the database with no luck.
    Thanks in advance.

    No not that one- this one is more lifelike (if thats possible) and has dark red coverings.

  • JezzatheshedJezzatheshed Member Posts: 159
    Sussed it. its the brontosaurus from 4507 minus its legs! time to count the bricks me thinks.
  • atkinsaratkinsar Member Posts: 4,272
    Looking for this on Bricklink, can anyone help please?
  • atkinsaratkinsar Member Posts: 4,272
    Picture for above!

  • peterlinddkpeterlinddk DenmarkMember Posts: 170
    ^ is called a "Wedge 4 x 3 Cut Back with Cutout, Two Studs", but I prefer to think of it as a "motorcycle saddle", as used in Set #4893.

    The part number is 50948, and here it is on bricklink: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=50948

    Darn enough to build a one legged T-Rex.

    That'll be why I don't recognise it, never did open that one!

    Hi!

    If anyone can give me a second pair of eyes on this, that would be awesome. I have identified almost all of my sets but I can't place these. I have scoured the town sets with no luck. I have tried looking by parts, but I can't find it.

    If it helps, on the back of the 2x2 it has numbers:
    on top: 12 38
    bottom: 3068

    Let's try this again.
  • oldtodd33oldtodd33 Denver 4800 miles to BillundMember Posts: 2,616
    They look like they are from set 8818
  • lannyjacklannyjack Member Posts: 39
    They are!! Thank you so much! I thought they were part of my sets from when I was little. I never had any Technic sets, so I was stuck looking on town and racing sets.

    I did get a bunch of Technic parts in a thrift store buy, and this is where they go.

    thank you again!

    Hi guys!
    Can you tell me if the dark tan 2x2 tile (see below) is available in any other set than the modular fire brigade?
    Cheers! Jess :)
  • peterlinddkpeterlinddk DenmarkMember Posts: 170
    ^^ If you need 2x2 dark tan tiles, they were recently in the PaB walls in the LEGO Store - if you live near one of those. Here in Copenhagen they still have lots of them, and according to http://www.brickbuildr.com/view/pab/ they are still around in many shops.
  • JessyDooDahJessyDooDah UK Member Posts: 228
    Perfect! Thanks @atkinsar &B @peterlinddk !
    I have lots of chances to get some. :D
  • lannyjacklannyjack Member Posts: 39
    So I have found most of my parts, but I have no idea what this is called. I have tried searching by curved slope or dome with no luck. I have just been looking at random sets on bricklink and peeron to try and find in an inventory.

    Any help with be great!

    ^ That's under Brick, Modified Facet 3 x 3 x 2 part # 2463.
  • lannyjacklannyjack Member Posts: 39
    Thank you!!
  • JT32JT32 BasingstokeMember Posts: 124
    Can someone please help me identify these, hopefully they are from the same set?
  • mressinmressin Lego City... erm LondonMember Posts: 843
    @jt32 They are all three in this set: http://www.brickset.com/detail/?Set=8059-1
  • JT32JT32 BasingstokeMember Posts: 124
    ^ thanks for that.
  • plasmodiumplasmodium UKMember Posts: 1,944
    I've answered a few times, but this is my first time asking a question on this thread.
    It's a slightly unusual question, too: What is the hairpiece used on Ewart in the Glomshire Knights brick comic? At first I thought it might be a "Gilderoy Lockhart" wig on upside down, but I'm not sure. Is it a custom piece?

    ^ It's the Hero Hair from Brickforge. Looks painted, though; I don't recognize it as one of the colors they offer (looks like light yellow rather than tan).
  • plasmodiumplasmodium UKMember Posts: 1,944
    Alright, thanks! That's been bugging me for quite a while. :P
