comment What is the most compact way to make a flat six pointed star in LEGO?
Would you have trouble keeping the elastic bands on the ends of the blades or screwdrivers? I wouldn't think there would be quite enough friction on their surfaces to keep them in place. Probably worth giving it a try though. It's certainly a refinement that's worth playing around with.

Not a huge fan of dremels, but it's a fair point about the flowers. We had also noticed the triangular plates with clips but the clip on front was a problem for the application. We're planning on giving the pulley a try but it might not work in this setting. Still, it's a great idea.

@Ambo100 Yep, we've noticed the same thing. Plenty of five pointed stars but this particular build (a Synagogue to go with the Cathedral and Mosque) really needs a six pointed star instead of a five.

comment What are the new elements released via the LEGO Friends sets?
Good points about the Microphone and Custard Pie elements. The trans-clear Vial in the Laboratory set was similarly only released with a Collectible MiniFig.

@Ambo100 Ah! I figured there was at least one of those in the list. Should be fixed here in a second. Thanks for pointing it out.

@Zhaph-BenDuguid And the question is open-ended enough to not be a good question for this forum I suppose.

So I suppose a meta question might be: Is BrickLink's catalog complete? My understanding is that the answer to that is actually no, though the number of exceptions is pretty small.
