    oh yeah! now I know thanks...I got the LEGO Mania Magazines too

    I recently sorted my collection and came across this really odd piece that I couldn't identify. It's sort of like a nifty little hatch/hinge but I couldn't find anything about it on Bricklink. I can't even find a LEGO logo or part number on it, but I'm almost positive it's LEGO as it is completely compatible and feels like the same ABS. I'd imagine it's really old, maybe from a classic town vehicle or something. Any thoughts?

    @matticus_bricks Since it doesn't have a Lego logo on it, I would say it isn't Lego. That and I don't recognize it at all as a Lego part. So, no not Lego.
  • leg0fanleg0fan Member Posts: 37
    yeah I do not think that is Lego
  • matticus_bricksmatticus_bricks Member Posts: 648
    Yeah, that was I was starting to think as I had no luck finding it. Really weird though, because I can't imagine what it could be and the quality is definitely on par with Lego.

    Not looking for help to identify, just an odd lot I got in a box of Lego. In that box there were weird bricks... What on earth is that little car, you press the middle bit and something moves... Then you got that long yellow thing? And the see through long thingy... I have bought many joblots and I still find bricks I have never seen before....

    @Norlego‌ the car chassis is from the racer line. I think the idea was that you bashed them into things and the driver would jump out.

    http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=racerbase

    A lot of the other pieces should have parts numbers on which you can use to search the bricklink database. Though I do know the black piece (bottom middle) is a dragon's tail (it's the same part as a crocodiles tail).
  • NorlegoNorlego ScotlandMember Posts: 444
    I assumed "driver" was a human, but it some sort of monster... #1239
    I am not going to build anything, was more going to show what odd bricks I got in the lot.

    Lego or not? Almost looks like it belongs inside an assembly that's not to be taken apart...

    50903, part of a Rhotuka spinner launcher. Most of the 2005 BIONICLE sets and a handful of 2006 sets used this part.

    B 3, 4 and 5 are from #7993 Service Station (and carwash)
    E 2,3 are diving goggles, or rather visor diving mask (30090)
    H is a snowshoe from the old arctic-sets: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemIn.asp?P=30284&colorID=3&in=A

    @peterlinddk‌ : thank you! :D

    C4 is figure cap. C2 is from 7993 too.
    G1 and 4 are top of figures hats. (Army pre ww1.)

    E1 is part 30710 and is in these sets
    E4 is part 46304 and is in these sets

  • mustnapmustnap Member Posts: 18
    Thanks @Norlego‌ and @beegeedee‌ .

    I am wondering, for C4, for which minifig/set the cape came from? I am not sure how to search for cape on Brickset or Bricklink
  • NorlegoNorlego ScotlandMember Posts: 444
    Try system pirates. Loads of sets where they could come from. I think the figure is red/white or blue/white. Do you hace such figures? They need shoulder pads to.
    Look for hats with small holes in them.

  • gmonkey76gmonkey76 ChicagoMember Posts: 1,413
    C4 is a shoulder pauldron from a Sandtrooper and F and G are castle figure accessories.

    @mustnap - A2 is from #1239 Subzero. The first of the two pieces beside D is a Clone Trooper pauldron (included in #8014 Clone Walker Battle Pack among other sets).

    G2 part number is> 87687 It looks very like one I have seen on pirates, which is what confused me.
    G4 part number is> 4502a

  • NorlegoNorlego ScotlandMember Posts: 444
    C3 is from 8654: Scuderia Ferrari Truck. The newer sets are red, but I found the black one.... Racers sell badly, but Ferrari sets sell better.

    Apologies for not having a picture yet but I found a piece in a box I bought on the weekend. It is basically an almost complete Jeep mild in green about 2 inches long, in inch wide. It has studs in the back and doesn't have wheels. I have looked on brickset peeron and googled for it but can't find any information. Anyone know the piece or which set it is from. Maybe a dino set?
  • plasmodiumplasmodium UKMember Posts: 1,936
    The jeep from #7628 maybe?
  • superstarbeejaysuperstarbeejay Member Posts: 121
    I thought that might be it too but it isn't. The piece I have is a single piece of an almost complete jeep body. I'm wondering if it is from the dark era of Lego when they started making more traditional toys with a few studs thrown on.

    Any help identifying these torsos?

    Also what is the deal with life jacket top right? It's a lego product but doesn't fit minifigure properly as head cannot be push down to meet torso??

    The life jacket is this piece, and the fact that it doesn't allow the head to be pressed down fully is a frequent criticism — especially since this life jacket basically replaced the classic LEGO life jacket which, although bulkier, didn't have that problem.

    @mustnap G1 and 4 also found in Castle Forestmen sets.

    @adventure_al‌: Bottom right is Lord Sam Sinister's torso from the Orient Expedition subtheme of Adventurers.

    Bottom left is interesting. It looks like Rascus from Knight's Kingdom II, but it has printing on the body itself, whereas I would expect, and in fact have examples in front of me where the (same) printing is on a breastplate which would go over the torso.

    Top left might be a robber from recent City sets (his head is also from KKII, either Danju or king Matthias), top-second-from-left torso is a CMF Santa's Elf maybe? Third could be Dino Hunters.

    Scrap the Jeep question. Looked properly tonight and it isn't Lego but a knockoff brand.

    Hi, so I recently purchased a set on eBay and the seller included these bonus pirate minifigures. Can anyone identify them? The one in the striped shirt looks like pi131 from #852751 Pirates Chess Set but I didn't see one with green legs. Are they just constructed from various parts?

    Those little guys are Definately mixed parts. The torsos are great though

    This should be a fairly simple one, you would think however no such luck. I am looking for a minifig - female - with a Darkish Red - CORSET with a silver trim to the collar. I've checked stagecoach escape and Vampyre Castle and the print is wrong.

    Its definitely lego not a clone from the join inside. Its not a sticker as its printed straight onto the torso.

    All i'm wanting is links to sets that have this option. It suddenly turned up so god knows where my youngsters found it.
  • binaryeyebinaryeye USMember Posts: 1,734
    It sounds like Rebecca Reid from #79111. Or maybe Ann Lee from #9462 and #9467.

    @raven1840‌ could be Calamity Drone but that would have noticeable silver arms

    Weird red power pack brick? Possible technic?

    Feels heavy like a battery inside?

    Google provided no answers

  • plasmodiumplasmodium UKMember Posts: 1,936
    It's weight - just a lump of metal, not a battery or magnet I'm afraid. They used to put them in the bottom of the one-piece-hull floating boats to stop them from capsizing. (I don't know whether they still do - my only examples are from late 80s, early 90s)

    Thanks you're a star. Think there would be any demand for it? no good to me happy to pass it on
  • plasmodiumplasmodium UKMember Posts: 1,936
    I wouldn't think so. Not unless someone has a hull they want to use and no weight to put in it. It's kinda a one-use piece. But then again, you never know...maybe someone will need it to balance out some very precisely engineered MOC?

  • beegeedeebeegeedee Galway, IrelandMember Posts: 380
    Could be used as a counterbalance on a tower crane as well. I suspect you'd need a few though. Or a siege machine like a trebuchet a bit like this one: jkbrickworks.com/trebuchet/

    Mind you, a few steel ballbearings or something similar would also do the job.
  • SirBenSirBen In the Hall of the Mountain KingMember Posts: 549

    ..maybe someone will need it to balance out some very precisely engineered MOC?

    I have a weight brick in the back of this build to balance the cab: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/378308 It is especially helpful when the dipper bucket is raised.

    @adventure_al, If you really want to find a new home for it, I'd be interested in it.
  • adventure_aladventure_al Scotland Member Posts: 243
    @sirben given it's nominal value I'll probably keep hold. Unless you'd like me to cost postage but i don't know it'll be worthwhile as due to weight I could see it being a few pound

    I'm looking for bricksets expertise again though. I'm sure that head is a harry potter but I can't place it?

    Also torsos, in particular the bow tie and sweater.

    If it seems I'm being lazy I assure you I'm not. I've already completed 12 figures from random mixed minifigure parts. The searching is time consuming and tiresome. I'm a bit stuck!

  • plasmodiumplasmodium UKMember Posts: 1,936
    Yeah, I think that head is Hermione. Maybe from the third (Prizoner of Azkaban) or fourth (Goblet of Fire) year sets. The first torso is from Rock Raiders, the middle one is the computer programmer CMF (I think) and the right hand one is a generic City one. Sorry I don't have set numbers - this is just off the top of my head!
  • binaryeyebinaryeye USMember Posts: 1,734

    I'm sure that head is a harry potter but I can't place it?

    It looks like Hagrid's, from #4707, #4709, and #4714.

    thanks that is good enough for me. I've picked up quite a few joblots recently and its painstaking sorting through to make sure im not overlooking any hidden gems. Your help is much appreciated, thanks!
  • mr_legomr_lego Member Posts: 8
    Hi,
    I'm just sorting through a job lot that I recently bought and wondered if any one could help me identify some of the minifigs that I have found amongst it.

    I'm guessing a lot of them are mixed up pieces but if you could possibly give me any pointers or clues that will help me put them back together correctly that would be great!
