    Any ideas where this strange chap came from?

    Surprisingly enough, it actually IS LEGO - although many of us would like to forget about that shamefull time, when LEGO produced such characters.

    It is a pirate from the 4+ or 4juniors series, back in 2004 - see him on Bricklink here.

    Since you have him holding a sword and jug, I would guess that he is from set #7080.

    :O I stand corrected. Must have been a repressed memory.

    That would make sense. I stopped collecting Lego in the mid-90's so no idea how we ended up in one of the boxes in my loft. I swear some of these mini-figures have a mind of their own.

    @Steve56157591 if your 4 Juniors figure needs a new home, please pm me.

    ^^Your remark reminded me of the "Twilight Zone" episode of the doll that wouldn't go away and kept returning, no matter what the father did to it. The minifigs are possessed little people I tell ya..

    Hi all

    In IT in about 1995 we programmed using a Lego thing that plugged into a computer, and we programmed them to work. I recall a wheelchair, robot arm, conveyer belt. I recall they had little sensors that then turned motors.

    It was the only thing I excelled in during IT, the wheelchair had a joystick and was really clever.

    Couldn't find the set on the site, mainly as I didn't know it's name or year or anything

    Any clue?

    thanks

    i've been trying to figure out which sets these belong to. I haven't been able to find where some of the older set pieces belong.

    First one is set #6609.
  • peterlinddkpeterlinddk DenmarkMember Posts: 170
    ^The fellow and slope-brick on the left is probably from set #6609 - the other one is a spaceman from the early 1980'ies, but I don't think the blue arms were ever used in a set. Take a look at this list, and see if you recognize something: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemIn.asp?P=973p90&colorID=3&in=A
  • JenJenningsJenJennings Member Posts: 3
    Thanks so much for the help guys. I really appreciate. i do remember getting the #6609 now that I see it. I still can't figure out how I got the space guy...especially if his arms are the wrong color. Must have picked it up from one of my cousins when we were little. They had all the space stuff...I don't think I did.

    Are you talking about LEGO Mindstorms? That is LEGO's robotic branch, used by many schools and universitities: http://mindstorms.lego.com/en-us/Default.aspx

    Just opened 1 of 3 massive boxes of jumbled up Lego from when I was a kid, any idea what set this aircraft remnants are from? If so, I'll try and download the instructions and clean & rebuilt it...

    Also sorted out these various Minifigs, are they worth much? Gonna take a while for me to sort all this out!

    ^ The airplane is from set #6375. From your other pictures, the bricks look heavily yellowed and are worth more in sentimental value than on Ebay.

    Thanks mate, i'll dig out the instructions online and start re-building it. Which pics are you looking at that are 'yellowed', sorry?

  • peterlinddkpeterlinddk DenmarkMember Posts: 170
    ^^^ Minifigs that aren't from licensed sets, i.e. Star Wars or Harry Potter or such, are seldom worth much, but it looks like you have a bunch of pirate-figures there, and if you can find all the bricks, and build the complete sets, they might be worth something with the original minifigs!

    Take a look at these pages, and see if you recognize some of your figures: http://www.bricklink.com/browseList.asp?itemType=M&catString=61

    @smillatt The white slopes on the airplane are all yellowed for the most part and the island with the 2 soldiers has yellowed white bricks on it also. Yellowing of the bricks happens over time and is usually caused by direct sunlight as well as other causes. There is another thread here for turning the yellowed parts back to their original color. The minifigures look ok for the most part but the picture has a yellow tint to it so it is hard to tell if they are in good condition or not. I think the most valuable set you have is the 375 castle if it's complete and the 6080 castle also, that's one of my favorites. This link is one of the threads to look at for turning Lego bricks back to their original color. http://www.bricksetforum.com/discussion/comment/105753/#Comment_105753

    ^ While we're on that topic, I'd suggest looking at this thread since they're already yellowed. http://www.bricksetforum.com/discussion/497/un-yellowing-old-bricks

    This is 15 years ago, small sensors which could identify tilt and different colours, they were lego pieces which plugged into the computer. You'd be able to tilt a Lego joystick, built from pieces with sensors. Which would activate motors in the wheel chair. There was also a robot arm and conveyer belt, we got it to send bricks along until the sensor noted a yellow one and then a robot arm came and took it off.

    Mind storm looks like the modern equivalent though
  • CalvCalv Central EnglandMember Posts: 904
    A couple of weeks ago my mate gave me some Lego Dacta which a local school was throwing out. (He rescued it from being put in the skip!) One of these sets was Dacta 1090 which dates from about 1995 or so. This has an optisensor and makes a washing machine, conveyor belt, robot arm ferris wheel and opening door. Sounds something like what you are describing.
  • jockosjunglejockosjungle Member Posts: 701
    Yes sounds much like it, will do some digging

    And another...not being lazy here but I've spent 20 minutes searching through the rubbish vans / garbage trucks / or whatever they're called in America - and can't work out which one I've got here...

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/8350966425/

    Is there a way to attach / embed photos into this, rather than using links?

    Thanks in advance
  • oldtodd33oldtodd33 Denver 4800 miles to BillundMember Posts: 2,654
    ^ @smillatt Here is the link for it. I searched BL " panel decorated" to find the piece with recycle logo and that listed the set number. http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemIn.asp?P=4215ap08&in=S

    Long shot, but any ideas where this is from?

    Spent ages looking through old fire stations and trucks, can't find it.

    Cheers

    The man is from a fire set.

    Think the surfboard, cycle and lady in the red jumper & blue trousers will all belong to #7639 . Def Harry Potter stuff in there and what seems to be Pirates of the Carribean as well.

    WoW! Thankyou!
  • ravnutravnut South BrumMember Posts: 25
    @andhe, was that all from memory or some other technique?

    I had to Google Jack Stone, some weirdness must have went on in my dark ages! I thought it was a mega-clone.
  • andheandhe UKMember Posts: 3,865
    @mrtonyj No worries, good haul!
    @ravnut mostly memory, with the odd bit of bricklink searching for the more obscure ones (eg Knights Kingdom & Jack Stone, where I recognise the theme, but not necessarily the figure).
  • mrtonytjmrtonytj Guest Posts: 214
    I actually knew that was a jack stone! When I first got him I thought he was a mega block too! Also, these are for sale/trade in the marketplace if anyone is interested?
  • anks1anks1 Member Posts: 1

    This was in some bulk Lego we bought yesterday. the piece has a Lego marking, and a part number (can see it, but not read it). It's made of a rubbery material rather than the standard brick material. Anyone know what it's from?

    LEGO Alien Conquest 7052: UFO Abduction

  • beegeedeebeegeedee Galway, IrelandMember Posts: 380
    There are a few variations of that part too in other sets where the rubber part is a different colour. It's used on the underside of UFO abduction so you can shove a minifig through them an it holds the minifig in place. Quite clever
  • AFFOL_Shellz_BellzAFFOL_Shellz_Bellz Member Posts: 1,263
    How about this one? It too is made of a rubbery material and was attached to a 1x2 modified brick, that has a stick on the side.
  • mressinmressin Lego City... erm LondonMember Posts: 843
    ^ It's probably part 61406pb02 (bricklink), see here: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemIn.asp?P=61406pb02&in=S
  • AFFOL_Shellz_BellzAFFOL_Shellz_Bellz Member Posts: 1,263
    @mressin any idea what the lt bluish gray one above is?
  • AFFOL_Shellz_BellzAFFOL_Shellz_Bellz Member Posts: 1,263
    Found it, part X169, most likely from #7673-1 as inventory lists two and we have two plus many of the other inventoried parts.
  • mressinmressin Lego City... erm LondonMember Posts: 843
    Ah, sorry, was stuck on the previous page. The other part is also in #7115.

    It's this piece, which debuted in the 2008 Exo-Force set 8114 Chameleon Hunter and also appeared in the Mars Mission set 7649 MT-201 Ultra Drill Walker. It also exists in a number of two-color blends.

    The reason for the rubber tip is for safety and stability reasons. Thin, pointy parts can not only be uncomfortable to step on, but can easily snap at the tip if molded in regular ABS.

    EDIT: Didn't realize that this had already been answered, sorry!
