Carefully. Ba dum tish.

I believe you are referring to a set numbered 3305, not 3005.

comment How is this brick attached to the pregnant minifig?
You would be able to see those brackets, both from the side as well as the front in the corners of the dome. That's clearly not what is being used here.

This version cannot bend her legs, unfortunately.

Kit Z Fox, the neck bracket does not fit over the pants peg.

They do not fit. The leg pegs are slightly larger than a stud. (This is also why the use of slopes as skirts results in a loose connection.)

comment What are the tiny, single-peg, statuette figures from the SHIELD Helicarrier called?
Depends on your interpretation I guess. I understand "microscale" to mean literally anything smaller than minifig scale. I don't think I've ever seen a build scaled for microfigs, though.

comment What are the tiny, single-peg, statuette figures from the SHIELD Helicarrier called?
It's going to depend on whether this becomes a common practice or not. They call Voodoo Jack "Mini Jack", so we might see the pieces called "Mini Captain America", etc., in the inventory for this.

comment What is the rarest LEGO production element (colour/shape combination)?
I didn't realize they re-released it! Brickset still lists it as only coming in the one set from 10 years ago, and when I went looking to buy some last year, they were $1+ each on Bricklink. Anyway, I think a much more interesting answer to this question than a rare one-off piece for a licensed set is a common color and common part that in combination are rare.

comment Buying minifigure parts at the Lego Store
Agree with what's been said here: It's pretty standard to let you put any 15 pieces from the build-a-minifig stand into the container for the $9.99 price.

comment Why do new LEGO bricks feel softer than old bricks?
Considering Lego is the world's largest toy-maker, they have grown 15% per year for ten years, and AFOLs make up only about 5% of their revenue, I think your entire last paragraph needs to be reconsidered.

comment What is LUGBULK?
This answer would have been better as a comment to another answer. As is, it does not actually answer the question.

comment Will they ever make LEGO The Amazing Spider-man 2 sets?
This is correct. Lego does not have a licensing agreement with Sony who owns the movie rights to Spider-Man. They currently Spider-Man sets based only on Marvel IP. (Note that the "Amazing Spider-Man 2" designation for the Comic-Con exclusive from 2013 does not actually name that film anywhere on the package.)

comment Looking for a Basic Lego set with mostly large bricks
I guess so. My point is that it's the closest to what he is looking for.

comment How can I make a Lego heroica scale gladiator arena?
The distance for one stud is 8mm (2 times the radius plus the distance between them). For example, a 1x1 brick is 8mm square, while a 1x2 brick is 16mm the long way. That is why 5 plates equals 2 studs: 5 x 3.2mm = 2 x 8mm = 16mm.

I added a suggestion for your specific situation.

comment What are LEGO baseplates made from?
I did not say all Lego parts are ABS; I specifically mentioned "rigid plastic" Lego elements. Obviously I am not counting the molded rubber pieces, the strings, the capes, etc. (I concede that, upon further research, the transparent Lego elements may not be made from ABS.) The baseplates are, in fact, ABS, and they are only more flexible because they are thinner than other Lego elements. Brickowl thinks they are made of ABS: brickowl.com/catalog/lego-baseplate-32-x-32-3811

comment How can odors be removed from bricks?
How many cleanings do you need? You clean them once, then take care of them properly.

comment Lego Racer kit with Chargeable Cars
The part numbers are standardized, but many of the parts are hand-entered into these third-party databases. Someone made a mistake, unless Lego released two versions of the set (not unheard of). Lego's official inventory pages (service.lego.com/en-us/replacementparts?#WhatBrickBuy/8364) often do not include brand new or rare parts.

comment Is there a Technic set that is just an assortment of parts and not a specific vehicle?
Lego sells Technic parts packs through their Education line. See my comment for further detail.
