There are several discrepancies between the double-decker couch featured in The Sea Cow set and that depicted in the LEGO Movie. I've recreated the movie version as best I could in LDD and LDraw, and have compared it side-by-side with the Sea Cow set version. In the first picture, the Sea Cow set version is on the left, and the movie version is on the right, ...

I believe that this covers everything: Construction vehicles: Diesel Dumper (6532) Backhoe (6662) Landscape Loader (6512) Recycle Truck (6668) Friends car (30103) Fire vehicles: Jetport-Fire-Squad (6440) Launch Evac 1 (6614) Rescue Runabout (6511) Looks like just the car from Shell Convenience Store (1254)

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

I am not aware of any sellers that do this, but if you like to assemble discontinued sets, bricklink has a feature that allows you to do this using bricklink seller inventories. Just look up the set on bricklink, add the Inventory to your wishlist and review which sellers have the pieces you need, then order them. Go to the "Wanted" tab on Bricklink: ...

928 was the original set number of the Galaxy Explorer - so the numbering of that one is following the LEGO tradition of using the set number. As Joubarc points out, at that time the sets were branded LegoLand, which is where the LL comes from (in recent years LEGO often uses the Designer's initials). I'd say that as Benny is a rather well used Classic ...

There is a whole site dedicated to working out how you can build a particular model using parts from other sets - Rebrickable. A combination of that and Bricklink would be cheaper as you'd end up with fewer extra parts. There's also a thread on EuroBricks where someone has done what you're doing and there are some useful tips (mostly about buying as much as ...

A lot, but definitely not all, is likely from Race 3000.

It's a ship alright.. a heavier than air airship: Wright Flyer. Quite a fun, if rickety. build.

Most of the parts are of set 7288. I see at least the following: Window / door with the gates Big wall parts with stickers. Cop minifig & white shirt criminal Computerdesk and front of the truck Red front of the small car I also see parts of 7279: Gray shirted criminal Part of the ATM terminal Parts of the little car (lights and front with ...

Right now, the largest commercially available train is the Lego City Cargo Train, Set 60052. It comes in at about 887 pieces. There are 30 rail pieces in this kit. Extra rail pieces are also commercially available through Lego. The 7898-1 cargo train would come in second as far as piece count. Same amount of track as the 60052.

There are a number of ways to start figuring it out, my method is as follows: Try and identify some of the following: Unique pieces Unique minifigs Stickers on pieces Unique logos Color schemes or unique colors The minifigs, stickers and colors are usually enough at least point you to the right theme category (ie space, pirates, castle, city, star wars, ...

No, but Brickset now provides the facility to enable one to be made. See http://brickset.com/article/12960/tags-a-new-way-to-search-the-database

There is a website that tracks price changes on Amazon, Bricklink and E-bay in order to try to compile an index. It has an interesting page called top retired sets, ranking sets by gain compared to initial purchase price. At the time of this writing it lists 6166-1 (a big tub of LEGO) as number one with 65% gain, and 7200-1 (final duel) as number two with ...

Assuming you are asking for a set that has play features resembling an auto mechanic's shop, then you have a few options: The closest is probably 1966 Car Repair Shop. 1966 Car Repair Shop is a 1985 set. It does not feature a lift, but it does have a jack, and includes a wrench (and other play features) that simulate a mechanic's shop. Another good ...

The information given by Ambo and Gev is correct, a small summary: The biggest LEGO set by piece count is: Set 10189-1 - Taj Mahal (2008) piece count : 5922 Followed by Set 10179-1 - Millennium Falcon - UCS (2007) piece count : 5195 Biggest Techic set : Set 42009-1 - Mobile Crane MK II (2013) piece count: 2606

Apart from those mentioned by Joe, there are several larger sets in the Advanced Models category. They are not powered out of the box, but can be motorized. These are: 10233-1: Horizon Express 1351 pieces 10219: Maersk Train 1237 pcs 10194: Emerald Night 1085 pcs 10183: Hobby Trains 1080 pcs (This is actually for the previous train system, that used ...

So the box says 49 inches long, the official description says "under 50 inches long". I just measured the width (about 13.25 inches) and height (about 9.5 inches) on my assembled set. So a rough minimum inner size box would be 50"L x 13.5"W x 10"H.

Without pictures it would be extremely hard to tell, especially since both dark and light gray are very common colors. However you might be able to identify some of the dark-blue color pieces to see which set the bag is from. Dark-blue is a much less common color than the grays, so it would be quicker to identify what you have. The fact that it is a #7 bag ...

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 ...

The brick with the space logo is from either set 452/894 or set 6901. The buggy is technic set 1972. Information from Bricklink search.

At least the mobile police post 7288; the label on the piece identifies it. Look for pieced used as license plates; license plates on Lego cars often contain the set number. In fact, any number printed or stickered on a piece is likely to be the set number. The dog doesn't have to be from a police set; he also appears in at least one firefighter set.

Recreating a LEGO set from mixed up pieces is extremely time consuming. Even if you are just missing a few pieces, since LEGO makes tens of thousands of shapes and sizes. Even simply verifying that a "set of 352 pieces" has exactly the correct "352 pieces" is very time consuming. The good news is kids and adults LOVE using mixed up pieces to create their ...

It is very common for Lego to pack larger parts like Plate 2 x 16 not in a seperate bag, for sets this size. If I look at the inventory of set 7155, and compare this with sets I built over the years, I think 3 bags for the parts could be correct: bag with minifig parts and small parts like 1x1's and 1x2's; bag with large size parts like the 4x8 plates; ...

The most valued sets, when not using price as a criterion, will vary from collector to collector, based on their interests. In my experience doing LEGO Customer Service, collectors of all ages tended to focus on particular themes. While the Ultimate Collector's Edition Millennium Falcon may be the most prized jewel to a Star Wars collector, it may have ...

It looks like a pretty generic twin engin-ed WWII bomber. Maybe like this Mosquito bomber?

As mentioned by @gev, Bricklink is a great place to go. It is, however, not the most intuitive site to use. Here is how you can easily get the item counts: Start with the Search box at the top of the page. Before typing in the name of the set, make sure the selector is set to search the Catalog. Enter a term from the name of the set (e.g. "Millenium" or ...

In addition to the other answers supplied, look for pieces with stickers on them. Often these contain the set number. A license plate on a Lego car is almost always the set number.

I do believe the LEGO Group has limited the instructions to only one build, not including the sets that are meant to re-build differently (in this case there are 3 instruction sheets). If instead of actually rebuilding the set you mean alternate views (like the back of a model, or the unfolded model, etc.) this still applies to most sets that have an ...

If you really want to know, I would suggest identifying the most unusual part in a bag, then using that part, search for what sets it has appeared in recently. Each piece usually has a small number printed on it. Use this part number on bricklink, or peeron to search for the part, and then click the link that shows you what sets it has appeared in. ...
