comment How should I go about selling $3k worth of unsorted LEGO sets?
@Zhaph-BenDuguid The $0.01 auction is a scam, they just send you a link to the PDF :P. I've seen others that are simply collections of PDFs on a memory stick. Gotta read the detail carefully!

Don't neglect to mention the ebay link once you have it ;)

@BigWaveDave The book is expensive because of its size and rarity, and probably also because most people are going to sell it with the set, and not sell it separate.

comment What is piece 4211642 from 10179 - UCE Millenium Falcon?
I just finished building the falcon, and (as we had already determined), these pieces were not mentioned anywhere in the building process. Now what do I do with this huge thing? :)

comment Has anyone automated the LEGO hand sorting process beyond “pawing & piling”?
@MajorStackings: Perhaps a "vibrating table"-style mechanism starting with sorting screens like this?

Thanks, @Grandpappy. Yours is the voice we've been missing in this question so far, someone who has put the set together.

Thanks, Joubarc, for the official word. I couldn't find where these pieces are used in a quick scan through the PDF copy of the manual. Due to the fact they are missing from the 3rd-party lists, plus the fact that no gray pieces are available for sale anywhere, I doubt they are used. I'll update when I have finished building to confirm (might be awhile, I still have to replace 350 missing pieces!)

That looks like it, @Joel. Escalating your comment to an answer so I can include pics...

Only other thing I can think of is if this is a small part that snaps into another larger part and doesn't come out later, but I can't identify any candidates for that...

Me either, on either the Bricklink inventory or Peeron inventory list.
