    Hello. I was just building set #6276 and found this. I believe it happens when they switch over collor or something . Does this happen a lot or is it that's its an original piece from 1989? Thanks
    I don't think it happens a lot anymore, but it's well-documented in older sets. I haven't sen a lot of it firsthand (being a younger AFOL in the grand scheme of things), but I've read mentions of it in "The World of LEGO Toys", a book about LEGO from 1987.

    Not exactly a part, but would anyone one know where those cup/pot come from ? They have no marking beside a "Made in China". The LEGO logo is a sticker. Each cup is 3" high, 2.5" wide at the bottom and 3. 5/8 at the top.

    @Dawn I have almost the same thing. They were packaged by RoseArt and sold in stores under the Lego Educational banner.  I have red, green, yellow and white cups and came with 50 2 x 2 bricks in assorted colors.

    Hi, I recently purchased a basket full of what was tagged as vintage Lego. It contained a lot of bricks from the early 60s but in amongst it was this. It is 8 x 2 x 3 and I've got no idea what set it comes from. It has the Lego name on each stud, so I'm sure its genuine. Any help would be appreciated

    Many thanks for that it also explains where the VW dealers sign came from!!

    I had some boxes of off-brand blocks mixed in with legos. I was sorting them and found these two pieces... WHAT ARE THEY?

  • MattsWhatMattsWhat Studley, UKMember Posts: 1,643
    Hi all,
    Just looking through a box and drew a blank on these pieces...
    Left part is some sort of spring launcher, still working perfectly.  Never seen it before.
    Middle is obviously a classic space but looks to not have the yellow in the logo. Is it just faded or was there a production run like this?
    Last part I just don't know, haven't looked yet but threw it in the picture as someone here will tell me faster than I can google!

    Left part is not a spring launcher but a fork lift truck part http://alpha.bricklink.com/pages/clone/catalogitem.page?P=3430c03#T=C&C=9. Middle just looks like a faded red classic space torso as you have guessed. Far right not so sure as not seen one of those before.

    ^awesome... I never would have guessed that I was looking in classic castle.  Bricklink suggests finding one with a spring still in perfect condition is a bit of a find then! Thank you!

    the far right part was from the UFO theme, in set #6915 Warp Wing Fighter, or #6836 V-Wing Fighter
  • AanchirAanchir United StatesMember Posts: 2,802
    Far right is 30118 from the U.F.O. theme.

    Does this piece actually exist?

    http://brickset.com/parts/4623498

    Pig with a printed ear? I ask because the sets that bricklink only identifies one printed pig (without the black ear)

    http://alpha.bricklink.com/pages/clone/catalogitem.page?P=87621pb02&idColor=28#T=C&C=28

    and having looked at various reviews of the sets that brickset claims it is in, all seem to show a picture of the pig without the printed ear.

    Does anyone have one?

    I'm guessing the printable surface on that render just isn't mapped correctly. That's not unheard of on LEGO Customer Service.
  • TigerMothTigerMoth Member Posts: 2,343
    I also suspect that the root of this is just a matter of the rendering of the image.

    Furthermore, I don't actually thing you could print the ears like that. You need a vaguely flatish surface for printing. The tip of the ear is far from that.

    However, depending on what you're actually asking, the part probably exists - but with unprinted ears. The inventory in the back of the instructions for 7198 lists it (and shows it with black ears), so that is probably what was included in the set, at least at first. Whether it is noticeably different from 6068981 is another matter - but they are different but possibly still identical, parts.
  • andheandhe UKMember Posts: 2,718
    I'm asking if the pig exists with a black ear. As Brickset has two part numbers (but the two sets it identifies it in are the same), but bricklink identifies it as the same part.

    I own 7189, and although the parts list does indeed show http://brickset.com/parts/4623498 with a printed ear, the rest of the artwork shows a pig without a printed ear, and that is indeed what I got in the set.

    So just wondering if anyone out there owns one with a printed ear.

  • TigerMothTigerMoth Member Posts: 2,343
    Pedantry rules when it comes to things like this!  Unfortunately, the inventory only closely approximates the detail of particular parts. It's also unfortunate that the inventory, with the part number, is in a different booklet to the images of it being used.

    7189 seems to only have been available during 2011, so what you've got is probably genuinely 4623498. 6068981 seems to have come along a couple of years later.

    That being so, it's unlikely there's another part with the same number that is printed differently, and therefore that it's unlikely that there are black-eared pigs. The alternative might've been that one part number was used for pink ears and the other for black, but that's not the case.

    Proving a negative is always difficult, so that might be the best you'll get.

    Hi, I have 2parts too (both minifig torsos) and I don't know, where they come from. I will take pictures tomorrow. One is a white one with a green print in the front with a microphonr and "Space Police" letters. The other is a very simple yellow body with something like a red dress on the Front. I don't know exactly how old they are but they are older than 10 years.

    I just looked at the sets. It seems like I have none of those.
    But the fact that really annoys me is, that I usually know exactly where nearly all of my bricks come from.

    Yes. And again I have the whole minifigure, but none of the other parts from the set.

    I don't know where the right ones come from. But I know that the left one are Tusken Raiders from Star War. The Problem here is: I have 4 of them. All have the same head and legs, but the Brown prints in the back of 2 of them are lighter and those 2 have white instead of grey hands too. I know the set, where the 2darker come from. (Anakins speeder or so), but the lighter...

    I just wanted to say, that I'm not sure, if they originally had white hands. But there are definitely 2 versions of the body.

    I recently purchased a Samsonite Educational Gears set # 322.  While I was inventorying the set I found 2 2X2 blocks attached by a string.

    The big reasons that I think it might be a LEGO/Samsonite piece is it appears the same type of string was being used in the Jumbo Brick Pull Toy # 501.  Follow link to the BrickLink listing: http://alpha.bricklink.com/pages/clone/catalogitem.page?P=x1447c01&idColor=9#T=C&C=9

    The holes in the brick appear to be put in after molding, but  are very clean

    Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Im 99% sure this is not lego but I thought I'd ask the peps in the know. Thanks

    You are right I does look a lot like this http://bricker.info/parts/x1447c01/ But I think your going to have to wait for the real experts to say for sure. One thing that I see and I may be wrong but the knots look different from each other?

  • LeeLee ukMember Posts: 138
    The string looks a lot shorter so prob came from another set. Sorry Im not more help but as I said the experts should be here soon.

    Considering the pronounced "seam", it's unlikely.

    Need help with color identification.  These three bricks -- what color are they?  Our best guess was Magenta, but looking that up on Bricklink shows it never appearing in any sets, and the few for sale are nearly $20 a brick.  And we are sure these aren't that special, as they just came in a random lot of LEGO.

    For reference, the pictures include known color items via flowers: Magenta on left, Dark Pink in the center, and Red on the right.  And knowing how a camera can mess with colors, took a number of pics in different lighting conditions.

    We've looked at a number of other reference photos, esp the various Purples, but these bricks have too much red in them for that.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Bricklink aren't (or weren't) particular consistent when it comes to renaming some colours - including the pinks and purples. With that in mind, I'd question the identification of the colours of your reference bracelet parts.

    Off the top of my head, I'd say the bricks are Bright Purple. They appeared in at least three sets (all of which are bulk boxes of pieces).

    Yep, that sounds about right. The official name for Bright Purple is Bright Reddish Lilac, whereas Magenta is Bright Reddish Violet.

    What do you mean 'yep'? We're disagreeing!

    I'm talking about TLG's Bright Purple (221).

    And Bright Reddish Lilac (198) is Bricklink's Light, not Bright, Purple.

    And now we're going to confuse everybody...

    It's similar but it's not the same.

    1) The seam is missing.

    2) The hole in the hub is proportionately much bigger - the diameter of the hole in the lawnmower wheel is about a third of the diameter of just the hub; for the queried object, it's about a third of the size of the whole wheel (if that's what it is).

    3) The grove on the wheelbarrow wheel is a completely circle when seen without reflections:

    Oh, I thought you meant Bricklink's Light Purple. I was misremembering the name, sorry. The 2x4 bricks look way too dark to be Bright Purple (which is the color of the "dark pink" flowers in that same photo). Bright Reddish Lilac seems more likely to me.
