thank you very much, that helped alot
but this thread is about sorting out minifigures and lego sets like this, so I dont think there will be something else
thank you :) I think you are right especially theese 2 heads I was trying to find them for 2 hours :D
From what I can tell no set came with the green wedge plates and red tail like that
The bottom left appears to be from #60182
18 looks like part 3228c -- not seeing any sets with it and the other pieces.
Part 20 has only appeared in one set #6575 ( in that light grey color)
Part 16 may be from the same set (part #30285) if it is white (hard to tell color in your photos).
15 is part 3474 which appeared in lots of airport and plane sets if I recall.
As an example, 17 above likely has on the bottom the number 4476. You could then search Bricklink for that and find there is a 4476a and 4476b. There is a photo which outlines which one is A and which is B. In your case, I believe yours to be 4476b. That is found in 116 sets. I can't tell from the photo if your part is white or light gray. If white, it is found in 64 sets. If light gray, then it is only found in 6 sets.
As you identify additional pieces this way, you'll start to see some sets overlap in the "appeared in" lists. That's a great way to narrow down what set you might possibly have in your bulk lot.
I usually reserve this process for the more uncommon/unusual parts as they become more easily identifiable that way.
Lols. Of course, I know what he's talking about. However, those kind of glasses didn't help at all.
The few which remain unidentified (circled in white) were ones where I could NOT find a number at ALL. That's only FIVE pieces left!!
I figured I'd post the update, in case anyone else was curious as to what piece numbers these are.
Using BL terminology:
10 and 11 are, respectively, 2463 and 2464, Brick Modified Facet 3x3x2 Top and Bottom. Used in the 90's for Space, Western, and Aquazone themes.
25 is 2607, Magnet Holder 2x3
26 is 30554, Hinge Cylinder Locking 1x3 (no center hole)
21 is a Freestyle Wheel, either 4259 or 6248 depending on the type of hole (Freestyle pin- or Technic pin-compatible)
The Canopy on the bottom right is from #7930 Bounty Hunter Assault Gunship
The brown slope, bones, and 6x10 dark green plate are from #9463 The Werewolf
The Green, red, and dark green build is from #5868 Ferocious Creatures
An attempt has been made on this classic-castle.com article http://www.classic-castle.com/sets/articles/ideabook250c.html but I'm not convinced it's correct, but a reasonable attempt at reverse engineering it.
Sorry for the grainy photo but it's a crop of a jpeg of a scan! (not mine).
However... while the 1x1 brick with studs on 4 sides came out in 1985, the one and only time it has appeared in red is in this year's Star Wars advent calendar. So now I'm confused not only by the original pic, but also by the pic that has been reverse engineered.
True, and the color is the old dark gray, before the switch to dark stone/dark bluish gray in the early 2000's.
Definitely not a part I've come across before.
I'm liquidating my entire Lego collection so have had a lot of sets pass through my hands over the past few weeks. I thought I might have posted something off without a piece. I certainly didn't recognise it. Excellent that you can specifically identify it, no idea how it got mixed up with my stuff.
