Try BrickLink.com, the Online LEGO Marketplace. It works like eBay, with buyers and sellers from all over the world. You can buy the exact pieces you need, in the quantity and condition you need. Since you want a large bulk of parts, I would suggest that you post your request on the BrickLink Forum first, as there may be sellers who have a very large ...

BrickLink is by far the best place to buy LEGO. It is also very easy to use. Once you get how it works, you will never look back. There are several very helpful videos on YouTube showing you how to use BrickLink most efficiently. Here is one: http://youtu.be/Cyat8aFVk_k I have also put together a detailed written guide on how to use BrickLink here: http://...

That is Part 6641 - Technic Changeover Catch. Also known as "Technic Transmission Changeover Catch".

This is not a LEGO part. It's closest LEGO cousin would be 3149: 3149-like hinges don't have a 2x2 version to the best of my knowledge. In addition, the part in the picture appears to be 12 ldu (1.5 plates) thick. This leads me to believe that it is actually a Tyco part. Also, it looks like this has already been discussed on Eurobricks where the same ...

As a buyer on BrickLink you place your order to the seller, who then must acknowledge your request and quote you a full price (including any taxes, shipping costs, or other fees; most buyers will lists these additional cost details on their individual seller page) if you don't like the price they quote, you can walk away. If you agree then you need to give ...

You'll need to start learning the nomenclature for those pieces. For example the long straight pieces you have there with holes on top are "Technic, Brick 1 x 12 with Holes" The pieces with rounded ends are lift arms. You can browse through the list of them here or take a stab at their descriptions using the width and number of pin holes. For example the ...

I just did a search on all three sites for "2x2 yellow brick." Peeron returned 50 results in a wall-of-text format with no images and I really didn't want to sift through it. But I did and none of them was a standard 2x2 yellow brick. BrickLink returned 16 results, all with individual images of specific items, none of which was a plain yellow 2x2 (but ...

Click on the MyBrickLink tab on the top row, then My Settings in the second row of tabs, then the My Shopping Settings link. Check the box next to "Show Weight in Shopping Cart". Then, when you view a cart full of items in a particular BrickLink store, scroll to the bottom and it should tell you the calculated total weight.

Clear 2x4 bricks might seem to be expensive because LEGO doesn't produce them currently (they stopped making them in 2006). However, a quick search on Bricklink sees them listed as cheap as $0.02 per brick, used, which is not expensive at all. Just make sure you look for the correct brick design - you want to look at 3001old.

Those pieces are: Plate, Modified 1 x 2 with Handle on Side - Free Ends And Plate, Modified 1 x 2 with Clip Horizontal on End

It’s not perfect, but it’s their way of finding reputable sellers. Any purchase counts so you can just buy 5 more cheap minifigs.

Brickset says 602 elements, brickset takes its data from Lego Customer Services. Bricklink says 603 elements, bricklink count includes a stickersheet while brickset does not. To get the bricklink total, select "Part out" on the catalog page, it will suggest to add 603 pieces to a "wanted list". Adding the number of elements in the back of the manual I get ...

The difference is actually explained within the naming, which comes from Bricklink, a place where people buy and sell LEGO items around the world. In cases like Bricklink, especially with AFOLs, it is necessary to know which exactly parts you are dealing with. During the years LEGO has been upgrading parts, where Tile 2 x 2 is not an exception. Initial ...

The way to do it is to make a wanted list in BrickLink, selecting all the different pieces and quantity of each that you want. Then select all of the items by checking the boxes next the items you want or selecting the upper box to select them all and then click the green buy items button, this then brings up a list of stores selling the items. The list is ...

I think BrickOwl is the best alternative to Bricklink, I placed an order there and it worked as well as on Bricklink. The fact that many sellers on BL also sell on BO. There are only two things that BO can't compete with BL: inventory, and a bit higher price.

In general, it is considered best to first build up a reputation (i.e. feedback) by selling smaller items, before offering up rare and expensive items. When a new seller (low or zero feedback) offers up an expensive set, the following might happen: Buyers will be afraid to purchase from you as offering expensive sets for sale by low feedback buyers is ...

I would suggest that you check with the sellers, as well as their feedback. There is a huge variety and quality of used bricks sold. For some sellers you can't tell used from new at all. Other sellers mention in detail the condition of used pieces; dull color, small chips and scratches, discoloration - most of these are fully functional elements and are ...

Doing this for Pick-a-brick (which sports an antiquated UI) requires some fairly advanced hacking. See this question. It's unfortunate that there is no simple interface for importing composite sets of bricks.

My guess would be that it is the LEGO element ID (6-7 digits as far as my observation goes). This is different from the item number which is shown on the bricks or on BrickLink. The item number usually contains (or is equal to) the design number. Example: I have a 2x6 plate in tan. This shows the number 3795. As this is a common piece I looked it up on the ...

As you've noticed, the Starwars Minifigs don't come with accessories - this probably makes it easier for the sellers and buyers in terms of sorting: for example the battle packs often came with 3 or 4 different characters along with 2 different weapon styles - there's no definitive "this character has this style of weapon". The weapons can be found using ...

I find BrickSet a bit easier to browse for parts than BrickLink Alternately you could install LDD (Lego Digital Designer), find the name of the part, and then search with that name

You're describing rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/ Besides official models, also hundreds of fan created models are available. It's a terrific resource

There are a few that I'm aware of. Here's one from the 7208 Fire Station: And another from the 7288 Mobile Police Unit: This TV element from the 7639 Camper may also work for you: These are all very affordable on Bricklink. Note that they are stickered parts. I'm not aware of printed parts with this pattern, but perhaps someone else here knows of some.

The best way to figure out what colors a set of parts have in common is to use BrickLink’s Stud.io digital design software. I am unable to show screenshots at the moment, but here are the steps: Open Stud.io Place the parts in question on your virtual building workspace (doesnt matter in which color) Select all the parts together, either by: using the ...

The cheapest option would be to join your local RLUG and participate in the lugbulk program, however given the time constraint of having an exposition already next fall this might not be feasible (lugbulk takes nearly a year to organize, order, deliver, sort, etc...) The next best solution would then be to visit your lego store again and ask the personnel ...

That part is Tile 4x4 with studs on edge. It's available in many colours but there are only a small number of printed variants. Rebrickable shows 27 printed variants, 12 of which are Star Wars prints like the one in your question. I'm not aware of any third-part labels or stickers but you could probably print your own if you're handy with Photoshop or the ...

It's good application for android - parts are sorted and easy to fine necessary part. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.betab.partsguideforlegotechnic

There is no built-in way to download the Bricklink wanted lists. However, there is a userscript that should work for this. DISCLAIMER: Use at your own risk. YMMV. http://userscripts-mirror.org/scripts/show/167618 Firefox with Greasemonkey is the way I use other user scripts, but I wasn't able to get this working with Firefox. I was able to get it ...

It's an number printed on the piece of paper, so it's easy to identify and to search (if you look at the picture of the "part" you will see it). If you were asking about the actual (internal) meeaning of the number then I don't know for sure, sorry. I assume it's just an identification code.

Bricklink is correct - 3062 does not exist. Your link shows 3062b, which DOES exist (Don't ask me why the base number does not exist though :) ). So if you change your XML to <INVENTORY> <ITEM> <ITEMTYPE>P</ITEMTYPE> <ITEMID>3062b</ITEMID> <COLOR>23</COLOR> ...
