Just look at the (very useful) 3x3 low slope inside corner (double concave) slopes... introduced in 2011 in the ROBIE HOUSE architectural set... and 7 years later still available in only an extremely limited color selection for a roof brick....
As happens so often... I get more excited about existing parts in new colors, due to this problem....
If it is it looks like it could have some interesting SNOT applications. Also looks like there might be a pink one but only features in side of box art so not a great shot of it.
Is that a new crown piece?
There's definitely new recolours in the new sets but not had chance to look closely enough to see if there's any brand new parts.
Love the use of reddish brown ingots for the chocolate bar.
There's a new studded gear system in the party bus set, sort of like the Duplo gears or the old Samsonite cogs.
And recolors galore, including our first sightings of new color Vibrant Coral and a Trans. Bright Bluish Violet recolor of the UCS Slave I windscreen!
Is this a new sort of gear piece?
There's actually two different gear plates!
I wouldn't really compare Vibrant Coral to Sand Red, since the latter was less orange+pink and more gray+red. Like, sometimes as a kid I liked to try to use Sand Red as a lip color on brick sculptures inspired by the ones I saw in pictures from LEGOLAND parks (although needless to say, completing a model like that without any kind of digital or paper sketches was way beyond my building level then and probably still is now). But vibrant coral would be much more believable as either a natural lip color or lipstick, whereas sand red would probably make you look kind of sickly… needless to say, I understand why it wasn't used as other frequently missed colors like Bright Bluish Green or Bright Violet in the first place, let alone why it hasn't been brought back.
So with a lot of teal bricks in #70830 Sweet Mayhem's Systar Starship! and #70828 Pop-Up Party Bus, it makes sense to add an orange brick separator to those sets.
Too bad this isn’t two parts that are only printed on one side. I could see some folks drooling over this part if it was plain.
