Bricklink lists two: OLD: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=6007 NEW: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=96874 There is one other 'separator', but it doesn't look like it's very good for bricks: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=x1220 ETA: The Clickits Separator! http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=clikits021

Here's the simplest way that I can think of to stop the vehicle at the finish line. You'll need basic LEGO Technic parts and a good length of lightweight string or thread. Create two reels for the string. One should be connected to the wheels and the other may turn freely. Wind all the string onto the reel which can spin freely and attach the other end ...

A cheese slope resembles a chunk of cheese from a cheese wheel. They happen to also be the perfect size for minifigures to interact with: ‘Lego Cheese Farm’ by AIatariel, http://www.flickr.com/photos/alatariel1181/10582728886/

It looks like it could be either #3049 or #3049c. Part #3049 currently exists in Sand Blue in at least three sets. As for the change in smooth and rough texture you may wish to read this answer by Joubarc.

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 ...

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

Ultra-violet radiation is emitted primarily by sunlight, mercury lamps, black lights. LEDs emitting visible light will not produce a significant amount of UV radiation required to discolour LEGO bricks. However, LEDs can be manufactured to emit UV light,

3652 Technic Engine Piston Square 2 x 2 This part was included in sets from 1977 until 1995, but it began to be replaced by 2851 starting in 1990: The main advantage of the newer piston is that it allows more pistons to fit in a smaller area of space. The piston is able to fit into the 2850 2x2 cylinder: The old piston required a brick-built 4x4 ...

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 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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

this brick has always annoyed me, when sorting my bricks

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 ...

In my experience, the Bricklink catalog is the most complete parts list. It is organized in fairly logical tree by part type (brick, plate, wheels, slope, etc). Once you get familiar with it, you should be able to identify parts fairly quickly. Rebrickable isn't as useful for creating an exact inventory of the parts you have, because part of its goal is to ...

ATC is the Asahi Toy Company from Japan. Here are the pages from their 1971 catalog showing some of their construction sets:

As was mentioned in another answer, the cheese slope looks like a slice of cheese at around minifigure scale. This part has also actually been used as cheese in official sets, including Medieval Market Village:

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 ...

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 ...

I suspect that is unanswerable except in very vague terms like "some time after the new molds get put into production" and "it will be a LONG time before the old ones go away completely".

The numbered bags are probably from 4635: Fun With Vehicles - that's based on the colours and the lime green/"bright yellow/green" cap. However even with 9348 Community Minifigure Set there's still an unidentified bag of wheels...
