I think this is the yellow element: Hinge Bar 2 with 3 Fingers and Top Stud And this the black "plate": Hinge Plate 1 x 2 with 2 Fingers and Solid Studs Both elements are hinges, so they can connect.

The red car that you mentioned is Mail Van (7820). There are a number of other trains in the picture including: 7730 - Goods train (the locomotive doesn't seem to be visible) 7710 - Push-Along Passenger Steam Train (just the cars) 7750 - Steam Engine with Tender (pulling the cars from 7710) 7814 - Crane Wagon 7760 - Diesel Shunter Locomotive ...

After zooming the image and identifying the windscreen, I searched the Bricklink catalog and found this in the list of sets using that windscreen in trans-black: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?S=4402-1 4402, Creator set, 2003. More details and instructions here: http://www.peeron.com/inv/sets/4402-1

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 ...

You were on the right track. This is a skateboard, but it is not a LEGO part. It's a Mega Bloks part, probably from set 9167 (X Mountain). The skateboard in the top right has a sticker that seems to match your description. The wheels clip on to allow them to pivot back and forth. I can only assume that this is to give these skateboards a more off-road ...

Those would be Waffle Bottoms, which seem to have been mostly phased out by 1969, except for the 4x8 plate that went until 1971. Having not read any deep history on old LEGO designs, I'm going with that was just what they went with to start, then realized that the tubes were much better.

The parts you are looking for are Technic Rotation Joint Disk with Pin Hole and 3L Liftarm Thick and Technic Rotation Joint Disk with Pin and 3L Liftarm Thick.

Yes, they are real! The minifigures all have standard LEGO body-parts. They are not from any specific theme, but mixed and matched from different minifigures. The headgear and hair-pieces are all real LEGO pieces as well. The beards are from LEGO customizer Brickforge, the spears are from LEGO customizer BrickWarriors, and the capes are standard LEGO. The ...

The 1955 Bedford Esso truck sets that oddTodd refers to were the earliest appearance of a company name/logo on a product in the LEGO system, however these trucks were sold separately as part of the Town Plan, without bricks (although some versions of the 1251 set came with 1x1 bricks that were used as oil cans). An accessory set from 1955 included gas pumps ...

Esso (aka ExxonMobil) showed up in one of the first sets ever, released in 1955. Bedford, a truck maker, was also represented in the same set (and others from that year). I do not know if there were Bedford sets released before the Esso/Bedford sets, since they were all released in the same year. http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?S=1250-2 Esso also ...

I also think those parts are painted, but I would like to add one more thing. The LEGO Friends sets have these cute cupcake holders that are quite similar, and no painting is required. They come in four colors, and you can easily insert a 1x1 round tile inside to add the "food". Here is the link: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=93082g And here is ...

My guess is that they're LEGO Round Plate 1 x 1 Straight Side (Part ID: 4569058 Design ID: 6141) with paint applied to make them look like food. Details of some of the sets that contain them are available on BrickLink.

The set is 8364, and you can see it here: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?S=8364-1 The motor is part 5313a: (http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=5313a) Unfortunately, they do not seem to be widely available. The current inventory has one guy selling one as-is (untested) for $10 in the US, and one guy selling a working one for $40 in Israel. ...

It's a "Turntable Spinning with Sports Trick Handle 2 x 24 x 4 1/3". I found that on BrickLink via browsing by colour, since there aren't a lot of tan parts and most of the categories are obviously not applicable (it's not a tile, for example). That page also lists the sets it came in (two of them), but none of the pictures show that part. But once you have ...

The set(s) in question are likely two versions of set 1210 Small Store, released in 1955, or 210 Small Store, sold in 1958. They were available in a number of languages and with a variety of store names. "Tabak" means Tobacco in both Dutch and German. The Dutch word for bakery, however, is "bakkerij", while in German it is "Bäckerei". "Bakerei" is only used ...

The two larger gears were produced from 1970 to 1974, while the smaller gear remained in production for three additional years. There are six sets released during that time that contained all three parts: 800 Gear Set with Motor (1970) 802 Gear Supplementary Set (1970) 803 Gear/Wheel Set (1972) 810 Gear Truck Set (1974) 811 Gear Crane Set (1974) 812 Gear ...

I see you already found the answer, but in general, you can use Rebrickable. After registering, in the My RB menu you can upload the parts you have and the site will tell you which sets you can build out of them. It will even show partial matches, listing the bricks you still need to build them.

Well, I have the Falcon and I can confirm that those pieces are not included on this set. That print appear on my directions too, therefor is a simple print mistake. I have rebuilded three times the Falcon (Only for enjoying) and those pieces still hide, somewhere, on the abbism of the box, so, don´t worry, You have all the pieces. XD

It is about the right size and shape to be the main shaft of this wind-up motor from set 4093: Here's another view: These pictures show the piece as white, but it might be a variant. I do not have one of these windups to take apart to check.

The symbol stamped on the parts you are asking about is the international copyright symbol © and is common on nearly anything with a copyright and not indicative of any particular brand or producer. A decent description of the use and purpose of the symbol can be found at http://www.copyrightlaws.com/international/522/ The tops of Cobi bricks have ...

It is very obvious that it is a Mega Blok. Mega Bloks are always thicker than Lego bricks. It would have Lego markings on it. It would be listed here. Have you seen a Lego piece with those big bumps? I have seen them on lots of Mega Bloks.

I'm going with "This is not a LEGO piece", assuming completeness of this Brickset page: http://www.brickset.com/parts/browse/categories/?category=Plates,%20Special%20Circles%20And%20Angles which seems to be where it would be if it existed in genuine LEGO...

Keep in mind that all Technic sets, even if they represent a vehicle or something, are also an assortment of parts by themselves. You don't need to build the model, and some sets are better "parts packs" than others. I would also encourage you to check the inventories of current sets (on brickset or bricklink, for example) and see if some of them could suit ...

Lego sells several kits of parts through their Lego Education line. You can buy them online in the US here: http://www.legoeducation.us/ The direct link to the Technic kits is here: http://www.legoeducation.us/eng/characteristics/ProductLine~Machines%20and%20Mechanisms They have a $50 "Simple Machines" set, a $140 "Simple and Motorized Mechanisms Base ...

The only 1984 set with corresponding dimensions seems to be 6080 King's Castle but I can't find any picture of a possible inner tray; and that's even assuming it had one (the box picture on this classic-castle forum post seems to point to the contrary). There's another good candidate in 1985: 6392 Airport, but again I can't find any pictures of the box. ...

Sets containing at least 100 pieces made in 1983 or 1984 would be my guess as to where to start searching...

You need to find the rare/unique pieces, and that generally just comes from years of building different sets. You just know which pieces will be exclusive to a set or at least a limited number of sets. Then search that piece on bricklink and see what sets it appears in (hopefully only 1!). Get the inventory of that set online (bricklink, peeron, etc) and ...


1

The short answer at the moment is no, at least as far as I am aware. Although, as oddTodd points out, there are kits in the Education line that may provide what you are looking for. The only Technic sets in production are models of some kind rather than parts packs. There is the Mindstorms set, which allows for many different models to be built, but that is ...

I don't think the molding pip was completely gone by 1980. I recently rediscovered my childhood Lego collection, which was mainly Classic Space from about 1980 (oldest set was 6970 Beta-1 Command Base) to about 1985 (the newest sets were 1984's 6951 Robot Command Center and a 6073 Black Falcon Knight's Castle and 1985's 6882 Walking Astro Grappler). The vast ...
