What set did this assembly come from?
Any ideas? I'm inclined to think it's come from a Star Wars set.
I think I found it:
SW911617-1: Palpatine's Shuttle
it was apparently included in a Star Wars comic magazine in November 2016
How did I do it ?
I'm the author of
pyrebrickable (Github page here), and by installing the python package
rebrickable-data we can explore the rebrickable database directly (query it with SQL). Rebrickable contains a seemingly exhaustive set inventories with parts colors etc. In that case, I looked at 3 distinctive parts in your picture:
2540 # Plate, Modified 1 x 2 with Handle on Side - Free Ends # thought it was white at first but it is in fact light bluish gray 60471 # Hinge Plate 1 x 2 Locking with 2 Fingers on Side # in black 3023 # Plate 1 X 2 # in trans-clear
By searching in the database for sets that contain at least one of all these parts, I could narrow down to a handful of sets, and in it was that Palpatine shuttle from which we can easily recognize a part of the main ship body
