    This came out at the same time as minifigures. It will be 40 years old next year.
    They used grey ones in classic space for moon buggies.

    In Lego documentaries they always highlight the 2x4 brick as the best Lego piece and I'll admit it's iconic. However, I find it is not that useful. It can't be used for walls because you might as well use a 1 thick piece instead. It is also too short in length to be used to strengthen the core of a vehicle. A 2x6 is the minimum for that purpose.


    For my favourite I'll go for #4070 "angular brick"

    If understood properly it can be used in so many ways. While it is not a pretty or iconic brick, I feel that it is an example of the genius of the Lego system.

    My favorite from my youth:

    Could make a rocket out of anything.

    It's true! You can just build anything and put these on and it becomes a spaceship or speeder or something

    Only ONE favorite piece?!?! I have many that I fancy, but if I had to pick just one it would be the classic 2x4 brick.

    not my favourite, but I would pick bricks with studs on side over the headlight bricks. so much easier to use for snot. that was one of the new kind of pieces that excited me the most after leaving my dark age, as snot pieces availables in the 90's tended to be a bit awkward to use, as studs on side wouldn't line up perfectly with the side of regular bricks.

    The 1x2 plate is one I never have enough from (except in black, it was in the PaB wall once) and can be used to make details fit in the wall!

    Ah! This is a terrible question! How could I have one favorite piece!?! There's so many good ones! Actually, I think I do have a favorite: glow in the dark stud.

    It's a nostalgia thing rather than a usefulness thing, but the space logo always makes me smile. Simple bit of design, instantly recognizable, brilliant! #918 was the first set that was mine and not shared with my elder siblings and this part, like the wings mentioned previously, instantly take me back.

    *Pushes glasses up* "uh, well, ACTUALLY, the Lego bicycle is made of 3 pieces, 2 of which are different, the frame and the wheel. What's that, no one asked me?"

    I don't think I have a current favourite piece, but when I was a child I prefered the 4* 10 * 6 burp, for making secret bases, like volcano bases, that kind of stuff.
    but I have at least currently a favourite weapon, the ninjago fire sword.

    This thread is making me angry, because I now remember a lot of sets/parts that I once possessed, but which were given away by a relative during one of my long periods of living abroad...
    Grrrr

    Of course 2x4 bricks can be used to build walls. It was the staple brick of many 1970s LEGO buckets / boxes that kids had. Although I prefer 1x4 for walls as an adult, many kids still use 2x bricks for walls when they play. Plus they have the advantage that they can easily be used for stepped roofs (pyramid style), which cannot be done with a 1x brick.

    I have to go with element 3046 2x2 slope double concave. 

    And insofaras 2x4 bricks go, my skyscrapers are predominantly those, so I would agree that they have their place.
