This would be a Crane Bucket - Complete Assembly (Top, Jaws, Spring). It could have come from any of 29 sets from 1974 to 2012.

This is an Technic Steering Arm and was used is the steering mechanism of all kind of technic car like 1972-1: Go-Kart With the introduction of studless building it was replaced by Beam 3 M. W/4 Snaps.

It's difficult to tell exactly what part this fragment came from, but it looks like it is part of a broken Technic gear or pulley. It looks like it probably came from 3736: Your fragment looks like it was probably once one half of the center axle hole of that part. In terms of repair, I suppose you could try to glue this back together, but given that it ...

Is it possible that you are thinking of this goblet (2343)? This part was fairly common, and it was introduced around 1985, so it was probably in your collection. 1x1 round plates attach securely to the top as shown in this lamp from the Pet Shop:

The city people pack is probably 9348: Community Minifigure Set based on the clasic space minifig print. The numbered bags are probably from 4635: Fun With Vehicles - that's based on the colours and the lime green/"bright yellow/green" cap. I think the first 2 bags are from 6118: Wheels and Tyres. This set has the same number of the small (8x) and bigger ...

i think you mean this part Yellow Torso Nesquik Bunny Large 'N' Pattern / Yellow Arms / Brown Hands from 4051-1": Nesquick Rabbit or 4049-1:Nesquick Rabbit Film Set

It would be a Slope, Curved 2 x 2 Lip, No Studs with Island Xtreme Stunts Logo and Flames Pattern.

These parts were used for steering in many Technic sets between 1988 and 2001. They are the following parts: Technic Steering Gear Holder (2790) Technic Steering Rack (2791) Technic Steering Top (2792) Here's an example of how they can be used together for steering from set 8022:

Without batteries installed, the NXT brick weighs 159.3 grams, so that's about 0.351 pounds. Do take into account the added weight of what ever batteries you have installed, though, as that will almost double the weight, and not all types of AA batteries weigh the same. If you're using a rechargeable battery, then for reference, the original NXT ...

They were used until 1990 for trains, the holes are there to stick in the wheels. This is the part: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=7049b And these (for example) were the wheels: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=wheel2a

What I remembered of those parts was that force was needed to snap them together, and I believe I also have some that are broken over the years. The part was introduced in 1983, updated in 1985 and the last sets were released in 2002 with one set in 2004. In 2003 the parts are replaced by Hinge Plate 1 x 2 Locking with Dual Finger on End Vertical' (44302) ...

In the case of 87609, the piece was first used in 2010 as part of the grill/bumper assembly for vehicles that were the standard 6 studs wide. Its length would appear to be a result of its original purpose. Its width also allows for attaching two rows of detail: 99206 showed up first in 2012. Its design allows for a more compact construction in ...

I was just reading about the 8485 Technic Control Center II, where you can make a dinosaur, helicopter, or hovercraft controlled by a big panel, and which I have on hand. According to a reviewer (http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=75864) there are a few rare pieces that were included with this set, which retailed for $219 in 1995. The price ...

Just measured them myself. Some of the dimensions might be just a little bit off, but I hope this suffices: NXT: Length: 111 mm Width: ~71.7 mm Height: 40 mm (extra 8 mm if you have a rechargeable battery installed) Motor: Length: ~105 mm Width: 40 mm Height: ~45 mm Ultra-sonic Sensor: Length: 44 mm Width: 44 mm Height: 30 mm Generic Sensor: ...

This is one half of a "hydraulic" cylinder used like in the bucket of 7685-1: Dozer. This element is Fric. Element, Cylinder and used often used in combination with Stick 6M W/Flange

This steering wheel is from 4613-1: Turbo Chopper, as this is the only one with an orange version of this element.

These are all fairly common parts that shouldn't be hard to find. It looks like they are a cheese slope (50746), a 1x1 tile (3070), and a 1x1 round plate (4073). These parts are common enough that they are available in many sets, or you can purchase them separately from LEGO Pick-a-brick. If you're looking for a more affordable secondary market, you could ...

I think the piece you're referring to is Dinosaur Tail / Neck Middle Section with Pin.

Any of these three sets (AKA: 6162-1 A World of LEGO Mosaic 4 in 1 6163-1 A World of LEGO Mosaic 9 in 1 852676 Travel Game - Multi Game Pack 9-in-1) Probably. Bricklink hint: just search for a size, like "16 x 16". "3x3 plate" is fun too.

An alternative to using BrickLink for those purposes would be http://rebrickable.com. I personally find the interface to have some warts, but definitely better than BrickLink in a lot of ways. In particular to your requested features it does support importing parts from sets (Look for the "Add to my Parts (Part out set)" link on any set description page) as ...

Is it possibly from Quicky the Nesquik Bunny figure?

gev has the exact name of the piece, but I'd like to add one more point that could be helpful. When trying to identify pieces as Lego or non-Lego, pay attention to the more obscure standard connections. The small ball above the hinge is a standard small ball joint connection, recently revitalized by the Mixels series (among other things). It connects to the ...

Oh, I should have read further down the page. There were special panes of "glass" in frames that fit the slots.

I'd say the yellow part is listed on BrickSet as "Lamp Holder" or "Plate, Modified 1 x 1 with Clip Light - Thick Ring", 4081 on BrickLink, Peeron, etc. The light grey piece is from the Flick Missiles, and is listed on Brickset as "3 M.Arch W.Knob And Shaft ظ3.2" or "Technic, Pin 1/2 with 2L Bar Extension (Flick Missile)", 61184. The final piece is "Mini ...

Almost assuredly it is a move to reduce the amount of plastic used. It may seem inconsequential, but adding up hundreds of millions of these makes for a ton of savings. The same thing goes for the brick walls, but not in the case of the ones you show here. I haven't seen it in any 1x bricks, but in most 2x bricks these days, the walls are a tiny bit thinner ...

I've been wondering the reasons why a number of pieces are no longer available and it appears the decision to reduce the overall amount of different pieces is simply a cost based one. From a Q/A with someone from the Lego Company: "...the piece count has been reduced drastically and there's a move back to roots in Lego, not only for creativity but to save ...

The easiest way to achive what you want to is register as a seller. You don't have to sell anything (you could keep your store open but empty, or you could just keep your store closed). Once you have a seller account you can manage two stockrooms: A and B. If you do have some sets/parts you are planning to sell and want to have an active store, you can ...

A comment on this thread got me headed in the right direction of research. Before 1958, none of the bricks had tubes inside, though as gev points out, some of the larger bricks had horizontal cross beams. In 1958, Lego applied for a patent for a new design with center posts in the bricks, which allowed for a tighter more stable fit. So, the 1x2 brick without ...

I still have cups and 1x1 round bricks from the late 70's and I can ensure you these were never brickable like you suggest. In the 80's, another popular build from Lego was composed of a transparent cup on top of a transparent minight head. Here is a colored example of that build.

Some of these pieces are released as collectors items (Gifts for Lego employees) or sold as novelties at LEGOLAND parks or stores pick a brick areas, others are from official Lego events (grand openings of stores, new LEGOLANDs, etc.) they are often given as gifts to people attending the events. Some are test bricks that somehow made their way out of the ...
