    Most of those pieces look to be from #6926.

    I can’t seem to find instructions for the build circled on the left. Is this a special build?
  • 560Heliport560Heliport Member Posts: 3,731
    I'm pretty sure it's one of the alternate builds that were pictured on the back of the box in those days. I've heard that the reason LEGO stopped putting alternate builds on the package was that they got a lot of letters from people wanting instructions for them.

    The mold was used in several 1980's space sets, and Arctic from 2000 as well. The Aquashark set was about $3, so I bet they sold a lot. 

    Oh they did. My brothers had a few of that same set. There were like 732 Aquanauts sets to 2 or 3 Aquasharks sets. So to build up the sharks they had to get that small set a few times. Aquazone was a great theme by the way.

    I bought two of several of the smallest sets, mainly for the minifigures. The only Aquazone set I didn't get was #6199. About two years ago I got a used copy, mostly complete. Missing the nameplate, but I have two of #6195, so I used one of those baseplates. Different printing, but close enough. They were all displayed since I moved to this apartment five years ago, but I put them away last fall to make room for other stuff. Now I want to get them out again! I love Aquazone!

    Anyone know if this is in the BS database? It’s one of a series of TLM2 clip plushies that I’ve only seen at Target. Currently on clearance for $1.48. 4x6 plate for scale.

    This is collectible "tat" as huw calls it and he doesn't usually keep track of it.

    That’s kind of what I figured, but I was doubting my search skilz :)

    I've bought a large amount of lego.
    Puzzled by a few bits that I cannot identify from which kit they came, anyone have any suggestions?

    Ninjago spinner, and the MF is this one: 911607 (foil / poly bag).

    I think the last pic is from the Friends pop-star stage show.

    And the grey and red radar dishes is from the UFO Attack game. The other platform looks like it might be from the Doctor Who / tardis set.
  • JudgeChuckJudgeChuck Member Posts: 1,576
    The one with the large hexagonal plate is the Ideas #21304 Doctor Who set.

    Recently made a bulk order on BrickLink for some pieces, and everything arrived perfectly as expected except for this one.  It was listed as light bluish grey but the piece that arrived was light blue.  Did this come from any set or is it a mistake?  I couldn't find anything on it.
  • 560Heliport560Heliport Member Posts: 3,731
    @King_J I'm sorry I don't know how to quote a post, or link to it, but I may have found an answer for you: go to page 11 if th Collecting Certain Parts Only thread, look for DeMontes' picture of some hammers. Yours looks like it might be Aqua?

    I'll throw my 2 cents in. To me the color looks to be a yellowed or sun faded lbg hammer.

    I have to agree- looks like a prototype color... here is the link

    Oh, interesting!  It must be a prototype then, that looks exactly like mine.  Thanks for the link!  

    I was originally thinking it was supposed to represent a lightning-charged Mjolnir but couldn't find that in any set.  Unlikely to be faded grey as it's in perfect shape and uniform in color all around.

    Hi, I’d like to know what set this plane tail is from. The numbers on the bottom says 335B9. Nothing seems to come up for that number. 
  • Switchfoot55Switchfoot55 Member Posts: 3,276
    It's part 54094pb01.

    Possible sets #7894 or #3182
  • Legojack10231Legojack10231 Member Posts: 71
    Thank you. I hope to find all the pieces. 
  • Legojack10231Legojack10231 Member Posts: 71
    What set are these from? The red one looks like he can transform into a rover. 
  • Legojack10231Legojack10231 Member Posts: 71
    Thank you. I’ll look them up.

    The red and black pieces look to be from #8897 Jagged Jaws Reef, which is a World Racer’s set from 2010 (for once I beat @560Heliport!)

    @KungFuKenny I was busy watching John Carter of Mars. There's a license I'd like LEGO to do! @Legojack10231 the one on the left is from #70013.

    Those look like mixed up parts from the Exo Force line... for example , the middle one is #8101
    Here is the list on BrickLink:

  • Switchfoot55Switchfoot55 Member Posts: 3,276
    If I may, most of these sets (if not all) are easily found on the main Brickset page or on Bricklink. Anything with a sticker becomes super easy to search for. 

    For example, the 4x4 dark blue wedge on the arm piece of the left most model. You can search, 4x4 wedge. You could then either look through the decorated parts, or simply go into the part itself, look at the sets it comes in, scroll down to Dark Blue, and look through the photos. I was able to find set #8103 in a matter for probably 30 seconds or less. 

    Usually searching for parts with stickers, unique colors, or unique parts is a quick way to run your searches. 

    Maybe just some quick tips/tricks for you. I always enjoy searching for parts/sets for people, so I don't mind so much. But you may be able to find some answers pretty quickly.

    Thank you so much for sharing these tips. I will do some researching. I’m sure it will take me more than 30 seconds but at least it’s a start. Just need to get familiar with the website layout. 
  • Legojack10231Legojack10231 Member Posts: 71
    Thank you for the tip. I was able to find the set number using the sticker as a visual guide. 
  • Legojack10231Legojack10231 Member Posts: 71
    How about builds that don’t have a sticker as a visual guide? How would I find out which set number it belongs to?

    Here is the method I used to find the two sets. 

    For the one on the left: 
    There wasn't a super unique part on this one, so I went with a more rare color. In this case, Dark Red. I searched Bricklink for 2x2 Tile, moved over to "Appears In" and see it listed in about 2400 sets. I did Ctrl-F and searched for Dark Red. I then looked over the pictures for a yellow car as there are quite a few sets with Dark Red 2x2 Tiles. A quick search showed #4949 as the only yellow car. 

    For the one on the right:
    The piece that most stands out to me is the wheel. I searched "Wagon Wheel" on Bricklink. The wheel in your photo has 10 spokes. By looking at the pictures on Bricklink, I see that this is Wheel Wagon Huge (43mm D.). I clicked on that one, then went to "Appears In" and there are only 14 sets. I scrolled to the "Pearl Light Gray" and reduced that 14 sets to 2 sets. Then, after looking at the two possible sets, I saw the carriage matches the picture for #7092

    It took me a lot of time and practice to refine my search processes, but usually can find most parts/sets now in a matter of a minute or less. Sometimes there are tricky ones that take longer. In bulk lots, you'll find sub-assemblies that you think are from a set, but were actually just bits and pieces the previous owner had put together. Those can be tough. But, keep at it and you'll be quick in no time!

    Thank you so much for sharing all these tips. I’m gonna use them to find set numbers. #4949 doesn’t seem to match the yellow car I posted so this will be a good practice. 
  • Switchfoot55Switchfoot55 Member Posts: 3,276
    Haha, I promise I didn't post a wrong set number on purpose. Let me know if you can't find it and I can post the right number. 
  • Legojack10231Legojack10231 Member Posts: 71
    Hehe that’s fine. I’m stuck on this step...
