I got a random box of Lego! I'm trying to figure out what set these bricks are from:

Few pieces to be certain, but I believe it's from the set Maula's Ice Mammoth Stomper (70145):

    You might want to mention that that part (bricklink.com/catalogItemIn.asp?P=87559&in=S) only appears in one set with this piece (bricklink.com/v2/catalog/…) on it. – Valorum Jan 6 at 19:52

    I find it very interesting that LEGO was so reluctant to add basic green pieces out of fear kids would build tanks with them, yet here they are adding a whole mobile weapons platform. – MechMK1 Jan 7 at 8:40

    @MechMK1 Times do change, indeed. LEGO now* embraces the philosophy of teaching the concepts of good, evil and struggle by releasing conflict-based sets with clearly identifiable good and bad sides. Or, if you prefer cynicism, they see that there is market demand for such sets and are willing to compromise somewhat. *Note: there were such sets even in the '80s, see for example the 1989 Space Police theme. – zovits Jan 7 at 9:16

    @zovitssupportsGoFundMonica I personally am not opposed to the idea of teaching such concepts, given how popular games for kids are all based around cartoonified violence (with a distinct lack of identifiable good and evil) anyways. But the reason why I brought it up was that the lack of a basic color for such a specific reason seemed like it was very important for the company, and it seems weird to just throw that out of the window for profits. – MechMK1 Jan 7 at 9:25
