Mind you, if you don't trust price-per-piece, that's totally fine! It's definitely not a perfect measure of value, and you're welcome to use some other metric like price per gram instead (when comparing the value of sets, I try to use both, as well as more abstract metrics like number of minifigures). Generally, you'll find a similar result — that most of today's LEGO sets offer a value as good or better than sets of comparable size from the past.
In other recolor-related news, 70623 includes the canoe piece in Olive Green for the first time. That piece isn't exactly common in any color these days. And the Dragon's Forge set features the new 4x4 "macaroni tile" in Reddish Brown.
Also, has anyone noticed the 1/4 circle 1x1 tile with pizza decoration in the Pizza truck from City and Pizzaria from Friends lines? I also think they're using the CMF pizza design (with Pepperoni) as well (or at least a similar iteration).
While new cloth pieces have been introduced in other creator sets (4894), I still enjoy seeing creator reinventing the uses of already available pieces rather than creating new ones.
70372-1: Combo Nexo Powers (Series 1)Another view at the piece.
Also the main body piece for the battle suits...I can see this getting a lot of use in the future
I didnt even even notice these until I was questioning if the instructions had a misprint, it's like a cheese slope combined with a 1x1 tile.
Quite a nice idea, allowing Aaron's battle suit to use the shield as a hoverboard like the minifigure
New colour short legs.
Finally we can have Father and Son Stormtroopers with white legs!
Another piece that I don't believe has been mentioned yet.
So I guessed right when I said part that was visible looked like a Bracket 1×2, 2×2 Inverted, yay me! Curious are those Tile 2×2 Corners with the missing bit on his shoulders new, or is the reason you didn't mention them is they were in a set for 2016?
Cant say I have seen this one before.
I've not seen any mention of a "Corner Plate 45 deg, 2x2" yet. So this is exciting :)
I saw this on the 75882-1 Ferrari FXX K & Development Center set.
Speaking of recolors, that 1x1 with vertical tooth in black is a great one. I had been hoping for such a part when I wanted to MOC an evil Elves dragon last year. We're finally getting one (in a different color) this year, so those plans have sort of fallen by the wayside, but nonetheless black could be a very useful color for that part.
I'm always on the look out for interesting pieces in red and black, because they're lovely for my M:Tron MOCs. So, this and the vertical tooth in black are lovely for me too. It's nice to see the 2x2 22degree angled triangle plate from last year is making it into a few more sets in red this year too.
