I definitely know them as the headlight brick, and they look like this: HoMa's world of bricks has a nice page dedicated to this brick! http://www.holgermatthes.de/bricks/en/lampenstein.php LEGO's Pick a Brick lists this as an "Angular Brick 1x1", Design ID 4070 (equivalent to the piece/part id).
Hooray, I get to answer a question! This is not a piece for launching missiles. It's actually part of an old steering assembly from some late 80s and 90s Technic sets. Here's what the whole thing looks like: And a view of the piece in question: And an example of how it is meant to be used: The teeth on the outside of the piece help lock it into ...
The LEGO Pick A Brick store lists them as connector pegs (or, more simply, pegs) although they are more commonly known as pins in the fan community1. The black ones have added friction for holding things together, while the light gray and beige ones are smoother and allow pieces to rotate, for example tires or beams. 1 BrickLink, Peeron
That looks like 30384 Windscreen 7 x 4 x 2 Round. In general, BrickLink is a pretty decent place to browse around for parts identification. Peeron is also pretty good. BrickLink provides a comprehensive list of windscreens both plain and decorated.
The part in question shows up as a "Minifig Gravity Stunt Handle" (part number x817) on Peeron and a "Turntable Spinning with Sports Trick Handle" (item number bb128) on BrickLink. Looks like it appears in two sets: Snowboard Super Pipe: Skateboard Vert Park Challenge:
Usually, the LEGO group doesn't seem to have much organisation; at least in the past. That's why you can find sets with two different numbers, or two different sets with the same number. Now the keyword here is "seem", as I suppose there was some logic to it even in the past. But nowadays there is some logic, and even if not all of it is understandable, ...
I don't have it, but BrickLink already has inventories of all submodels. According to them, day 1 is a Republic Cruiser. This is a mini version of 7665 — Republic Cruiser. They do look quite similar for sets of a such different scale: Sadly, Wookiepedia doesn't have a picture of a republic-class cruiser, but I suppose that's what it is.
It's been worked out by multiple groups who decided on different systems. The disagreement is based on what information was publicly available from the Lego Group at the time, what pieces had been manufactured up to that point, and what features the category authors thought were salient. To really appreciate the magnitude of the problem, just try ...
I ended up finding my old instruction book. The parts were called Lego Znap. It still blows my mind that these things exist.
This is the "Moustache Red, Headset, Red Eyebrows Pattern" minifigure head: It appeared in two different minifigures. The Explorien Chief minifigure featured in three sets from the Explorien theme: And "Aquaraider 1 with hook" featured in two sets from the Aquazone theme:
They are referred to as "Minifig Hips" almost everywhere: [partlink:970:4]. The LEGO Pick-a-brick service doesn't sell them without legs, and just refers to the whole construction as "Mini Figure Mini Lower Part":
Looks like a minifigure headgear accessory, specifically a feathered headdress plume (no. 6029b): It's appeared in a number of sets, most with pirate, castle, or western themes and sometimes as an extra part. It's sometimes packaged in a "Plume Wheel" (i.e. still in a circular runner with some cattle horns), and is typically used for islander minifigs: ...
It looks like you have SandGreen parts from probably two different sets... The dinosaur head (x158), 2 tail sections (40396 and 40379), 2 sloped pieces (3039), and black Technic brick (3700) are likely the remains of a Baby Ankylosaurus/Young Ankylosaurus: The wedge plate (2419) and curved brick (6091) are likely parts from a Red Planet Cruiser (also in ...
Republic Cruiser Is this the one you were looking for? You can see the entire selection of mini-models on Bricklink.
According to the LEGO customer service, this part is a "BUSH Ø7.84" (which is of no help whatsoever, as with most LEGO internal names) and has the design ID 6221. Unfortunately, there seems to be no official picture for it yet. This design ID corresponds indeed to the part which Joel Cohen and BradC have identified; the element id of the same part in black ...
I think Joel Cohen's comment is correct, it looks like a "Technic handle/hub" (escalating to an answer so I can include pics): Here's a similar-looking view from the parts list of set 7703 Fire Vulture: and a portion of the instructions from 7476 Dino Attack that shows how it is used: So if this is correct, it appears to be a mistake (or misprint). ...
Your best shot is to identify individual piece and look them up on Peeron or BrickLink. Since both carry set inventories, you'll be able to find lists of sets in which the parts can be found. Try to start with more bizarre parts, chances are they are in a few models only. Once you're sure you've found a model for which you've all the parts, build it using ...
The website Brickset.com has an extensive database of sets, digital copies of instructions and a Minifig database built in cooperation with Bricklink. The layout and style may be a little more user friendly than the Bricklink catalogue and if you register on the site you can keep track of your collection.
: 3787 — Car Mudguard 2 x 4 without Studs : 4211 — Car Base 4 x 5 : 4732 — Bracket 8 x 2 x 1 1/3 In the link for each piece, you'll find actual sets containing them, from which you can find set instructions. In particular, the two mudguard ones need to be one plate apart from regular wheel sets.
I believe the set you're looking for is the F1 Hauler (item no. 6484-1): Here are the details: It was released in 1995. It's a red-and-white truck for towing Formula 1 cars (and has no support legs). It has an 8 x 4 x 2.33 9V battery box, which is hidden in the body of the 6-stud-wide truck. It has a 1 x 4 light bar and a motorized winch driven by a 9V ...
There are three types of chain/track that are similar to what you describe, none of which are currently available through the official Pick A Brick, though all are fairly common on BrickLink. The smallest is the Technic, Link Chain The medium sized is the Technic, Link Tread The largest is the Technic, Link Tread Wide with Two Pin Holes There are also ...
I'm currently doing an inventory of many of my son's Lego sets, including the 10179 Millenium Falcon set. The search for this 4211642 piece is what led me to this site/thread in the first place :) I've been searching/sorting through all pieces, but can't find any of these... Me and my son are pretty anal when it comes to not losing pieces, and although ...
It looks like this piece; Door 2 x 5 x 5 Swivel, Flat Base. In this case it was part of LEGO Set 6089, Stone Tower Bridge.
I'm trying to assemble the 10179 set by buying the individual pieces, since the prices for the set are outrageous. I put the inventory of parts from the PDF version of the manual into an Excel spreadsheet to track piece counts and prices. The total number of pieces comes out to be exactly 5200. If you subtract 5 for the 4211642 pieces that are listed but ...
At BrickLink you can browse through, what seams to be, all the existing Minifigures. This link is the query that seams to returns most of them but you will have to dig around in the other Lego themes(categories) to find the other ones.
i'm calling those things "fenders" (don't know the "official" name, too). EDIT: if found wheel arch 2x4 in the LEGO-shop. this isn't exactly what you were looking for, but looks like a "newer version" - so maybe we should call those pieces "wheel arches" in the future.
It's called a brick. This may sound like a weird or mocking answer, but when you think about it, it does make sense. The 2x4 brick the most iconic brick of them all, the one which has started it all. The one for which the first patent has been issued in 1958. The book "50 Years of the LEGO brick" contains 6 of them, and the number of permutation for these ...
According to Leggodt.nl, the molding pip was moved from the side to the top of a stud beginning about 1974, but as Kramii points out there is no hard cutoff date, as LEGO used molds until they were worn out and included existing stock in sets until it was depleted. So you may find mixed types of bricks in sets between 1974 and 1979. By about 1980, the ...
A full list of LEGO tree parts can be found on Bricklink. I'd encourage anybody looking to identify a brick to use the part catalogue. The two trees on the right are definitely not LEGO parts.
(7259) ARC-170 or (8088) ARC-170 Starfighter. The part can be found in these sets on Bricklink and a cool alternative list.
