I came across this piece while sorting:

enter image description here

It appears to be similar to 2569, but it's clearly a different part. 2569 doesn't have the ridges and has a spherical tip rather than the cylindrical one on this part.

2569

I didn't see the word LEGO anywhere on the part, so I strongly suspect this is from a knockoff brand, but I wanted to make sure before I remove it.

Is the length similar? –  Joubarc May 22 '13 at 4:17
    
@Joubarc The length of these two parts is about the same. –  jncraton May 22 '13 at 11:09

That's totally a megablok antennae. I have a couple megablok sets with that piece. –  J. Walker Jun 11 '13 at 0:12

I've never seen that part until now, and it's certainly not in the antenna or bar bricklink categories. I'm fairly confident it's not LEGO.

However, it would be far more interesting to know what it is, but that's not easy to search. A few Mega Bloks parts have been catalogued, but your part isn't there either (I could only check categories bar, weapon and tool/gear before I got sick, though). Considering that database is far from complete, it doesn't mean it's not Mega Bloks, though.

Actually, I think there's a good chance it IS Mega Blocks: the antennas on the Repzyllian Trekker and the Gyro Fighter look very much like yours.

I can confirm that this is, in fact, a Mega Bloks piece. –  Nick2253 Jun 6 '13 at 16:20
