    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

    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.

    ^ 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.

    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?

    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!

    ^ It's a rubber band holder so it doesn't go anywhere on the actual module. http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=41752
  • TinKnockerHimesTinKnockerHimes Member Posts: 76
    well that does explain why the rubber bands were wrapped around it when the set arrived!

    ^I've seen them used in builds/MOCs, but they are a rather odd shape for their primary purpose it seems.
  • sandtherapysandtherapy Member Posts: 108
    I just found these in a pile of Fisher-Price Construx. They have LEGO printed on the back but I can't find a number. Any ideas?
  • SirBenSirBen In the Hall of the Mountain KingMember Posts: 586
    @sandtherapy they look like the Train Level Crossing Center Rail Cap Insert 2 x 14 x 2/3 http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=812
  • sandtherapysandtherapy Member Posts: 108
    Thank you very much SirBen.

    This looks to be a lid of some sort, but darned if I can find out what it's for!

    Wow, I get to answer one! That's an X-Pod lid (see http://www.brickset.com/detail/?set=4349-1 for the red version).

    People have made some cool MOCs using these parts, and the Hoth Rebel Base http://www.brickset.com/detail/?set=7666 used them for the anti-personnel turret.
  • ShpadoinkleShpadoinkle 13 hours West of BillundMember Posts: 420
    Awesome! Too bad it doesn't have the rest of the container, those are nifty!
  • AFFOL_Shellz_BellzAFFOL_Shellz_Bellz Member Posts: 1,263
    Any idea if these two helmets are Lego or a competing brand. The one with the yellow spiral on top says "Pro Art Works" across the bill and "Shoei" on the side, the other has no wording. Looked on BL but did not find either. They came in a 40 lb lot of bulk that has some MB and some BTR mixed in.

    So I felt like rebuilding an old set in lego digital designer, got about half way through and I came to a piece that I couldn't find anywhere in the pallet. Looked for about an hour. So I decided to search the piece database for this piece. I looked at every single yellow and white piece known to lego history and I couldn't find this piece anywhere. Which was odd because from what I remember from my collection of legos this piece was quite common (having at least 4). Here is the piece in question:

    Has this piece like fell off of the face of the earth?! Please help!
  • oldtodd33oldtodd33 Denver 4800 miles to BillundMember Posts: 2,618
    Do you mean this piece? According to BL, it was last made in 2003. http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=4214
  • eelikayeelikay Member Posts: 1
    Yes! It isn't in the database for this site and I don't think it's available in LDD

    Could someone please address my question about the helmets in the above picture? Thank you in advance.
  • plasmodiumplasmodium UKMember Posts: 1,944
    ^I am fairly sure those are non-Lego.

    That was what I thought but many pieces I'd thought were not Lego turned out to be! Thanks for confirming.
  • brickriverbrickriver Member Posts: 27
    trust me thouse helmets are not lego.

    awesome, thanks!

    i never know how to describe them when looking them up in bricklink
  • JosephJoseph Member Posts: 651
    ^ Often times I find it helpful to look through the relevant category; for instance in this case, I just looked under the "plate, modified" section.
  • sandtherapysandtherapy Member Posts: 108
    I can't seem to find a part number on these.
  • peterlinddkpeterlinddk DenmarkMember Posts: 170
    The yellow pistons are 2851 Technic Piston Round.
    The cylinder (you must have one more somewhere) is 2850 Technic Engine Cylinder.
    The two small rods still connected inside the pistons, are: 2852 Technic Engine Connecting Rod.
    The yellow "pins" are part of a crankshaft, and called: 2853 Technic Engine Crankshaft.
    The red pin is a normal technic axle, 32062 Technic Axle 2 Notched.

    Oh, and I have a feeling they all must be from set #8291 - Dirt Bike.
  • sandtherapysandtherapy Member Posts: 108
    Hello peterlinddk,
    Thank you and I must confirm that you are exactly right! I did a bit more research after my recent post. Indeed, these are from 8291 - Dirt Bike.
    Good call and thanks for the help.

    just a few things I have not been able to identify, and the crazy color in the bottom right corner
  • sandtherapysandtherapy Member Posts: 108
    Several of these go to 6969: Celestial Stinger Space/Insectoids.

    The crazy rose/pink color is mostly found in the Life on Mars series.

    The top left printed piece is from 5958 Mummy's Tomb.

    The yellow one in the middle is found in several of the Alpha Team sets.

    The yellow one in the middle is found in several of the Alpha Team sets.

    Expanding on this, the name for that pinkish color, used by both Bricklink and The LEGO Group, is Sand Red. It had a very brief lifespan; Life on Mars was one of the only themes to use this color in sizable quantities.

    As a trivia point, the "tone family" (my term, not TLG's) that Sand Red fits into also includes Sand Blue, , and Sand Violet, three colors also used widely in Life on Mars, but also another color that people don't tend to associate with these: Sand Yellow, better known to the AFOL community as Dark Tan. There were also metallic equivalents of Sand Blue, Sand Violet, and Sand Yellow, all of which are now discontinued. Metallic Sand Yellow is called Flat Dark Gold by Bricklink. I have no knowledge of whether any sets actually used Metallic Sand Violet, but it is on LEGO color palettes from the early naughts.

    Is sand green (one of my favourite colours) in the same family, or just coincidence?
  • TinKnockerHimesTinKnockerHimes Member Posts: 76
    cool!!! thanks for the help and knowledge, I was able to identify both sets #7314 and #6969, but most of the wings are missing from that

    Yes, it is, I coded my post wrong. It was supposed to say "Sand Blue, Sand Green, and Sand Violet", linking to each-- instead I accidentally left out the text for "Sand Green" and linked a comma and the word "and" to the page for the color.

    Is this really a set? I'd love to know...
    flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/8516785064/
    supposedly it's a united airlines plane. I think it's a MOC, but I can't tell for sure.

    It is a MOC - the tailwing doesn't seem to be a LEGO element, but something else (I can't quite see from the rather small picture). Are the wings made with two plates on top of each other? If so, that also signals MOC.
    And there is something weird going on with the front-wheels - even if the current cockpit is just some random brick, there wouldn't be room for a proper cockpit ... So all signs point to MOC.

    If I'm wrong, I'll eat a 2x4 plate :)

    I'm leaning towards "clone brand" rather than "MOC", since the tail, engines, and wheels seem to be non-LEGO elements. Can't find a picture of a set quite like this one through a Google search but as far as I can tell it is an American Airlines, not United Airlines, plane. Note the "AA" logo on the tail. Whether it was originally an American Airlines plane or is a generic or differently-branded plane someone customized is anyone's guess... it's not a very good photo.
  • MorkManMorkMan Phoenix, Arizona, USA.Member Posts: 885
    Thanks, @Aanchir & @peterlinddk. I think you've helped me to NOT pick this one up for $20. I thought if it was real, it might be rare(ish) and worth it. Definitely not since I agree with your thoughts on it being a MOC. Thank you!
  • MorkManMorkMan Phoenix, Arizona, USA.Member Posts: 885
    I guess I'm on a roll, so I'll ask this one. There's some sort of modified three-sided brick with post (?) as the base for this train. Any thoughts on what it's called and/or the number? I can't figure out how to find it out...

  • SirBenSirBen In the Hall of the Mountain KingMember Posts: 586
    @MorkMan, I believe that piece is the Brick, Modified 1 x 2 x 2/3 with Studs on Sides, http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=4595

    Hey everyone,

    I'm back again and stuck on trying to find a particular part I have seen used in loads of mocs recently. After searching on bricklink under various categories I just can't seem to track it down.

    It can be seen in this moc here http://www.flickr.com/photos/buurli_burri/8524185884/sizes/o/in/photostream/ (not made by me) and are the two staffs with crystals held by the minifigures on the path.

    If someone with greater bricklink experience than me could track them down I'd be very grateful.

    Thanks,

    DP
  • peterlinddkpeterlinddk DenmarkMember Posts: 170
    Ah yes - that staff is not an official LEGO-element, but an extra produced by BrickForge: http://www.brickforge.com/store/product.php?productid=16369&cat=0&page=1 - It is quite cool, and suits Gandalf way better than the standard "stick" he has in the official sets.

  • Dark_PegasusDark_Pegasus Member Posts: 37
    Ahhh that explains why i couldn't find it. Thank you very much peter, that saves me further hours of futile scanning on bricklink!
