As mentioned in another answer one part has two similar versions. Picture 3 shows the older 4081a and not the newer 4081b. This might be important, depending on your application. While both parts look to be very similar they have different properties. Older part has narrow/thin ring, which allows you to attach plates vertically on each side of the ring and ...

Double nods to Phil B. and Zhaph - Ben Duguid ♦ for offering correct answers, but Mark Thrill has provided further detail that might be a program issue, or he might have just said these words in jest. "I've been looking for it for hours on LDD..." We know that certain versions of LDD do exclude pieces. The version of LDD that I'm using does have both ...

This pieces is indeed hard to find, as it is used in building vehicles but does not have a name that has anything to do with that purpose. It is part number 52038 and is called Brick, Modified 2 x 4 - 1 x 4 with 2 Recessed Studs and Thick Side Arches on Bricklink.

I don't think it would be practical to evaluate every LEGO motors sound output, almost all LEGO motors are fairly noisy so I think it is best to address the problem of a noisy motor in general. My first suggestion would be to remove the source of the noise first, by using a purely manually operated dolly, if this isn't an option (perhaps you would prefer to ...

This piece looks to be an older Wrench piece: Minifigure, Utensil Tool Box Wrench - 6-Rib Handle. Picture shows the part in, what seems to be, in a shade of brown color. Unfortunately this piece doesn't come from LEGO in similar color. There's a newer piece, with less ribs: Minifigure, Utensil Tool Box Wrench - 3-Rib Handle. This part isn't produced by ...

I'm assuming all parts you have are not damaged as this is possible, but highly unlikely, event. I've tried to connect both parts myself. And this piece is indeed harder to push into desired location as pictured in step 1041. Unlike the same hole from the other side of the panel. I've encountered this myself quite a few times while building other models. ...

No restrictions on the materials. Well then, probably a component to the old wooden furniture LEGO used to produce, like these: 5003483 - 3-Seat Playtable Creative Play Station Center Pack Duplo Or the similarly designed 4509g - 3-Seat Playtable, 5004063 - 3-Seat Playtable, or 5003468 - 3-Seat Playtable Creative Play Station Center Pack. IF-LTW2C - ...

From the book Crazy Action Contraptions page 47 has a nice graphic showing the relation between the sizes of different pieces. I'd add that it is more common to call a "sideways brick" a stud. All lego elements are measured in studs. Using the same example as on the far right of the image, this Technic Axle is four studs long.

Checking part inventory for this set on Rebrickable I found following part to be unique: 10169 - Minifigure, Utensil Sack / Bag with Handle in Green Review posted on New Elementary also suggest pilot's torso and legs are new/unique prints.

Even though there's no corresponding LEGO piece, you could get away with this substitution: Part #89522 - Horn (Unicorn). This is how it would look with the pieces you have, and color wise the Horn comes in metallic silver too.

Could it be that there're parts missing in a LEGO box? Rin Rio-Oki has pointed you to the place where you can definitely get replacement parts, but to answer your first question, yes, it is indeed possible, though the chances for it are negligible. In any case, you should let LEGO know about it via their official support channels (even if you are planning ...

I'm fairly convinced that it is not a reference to any other past Lego product, but was designed entirely for this set. It's hard to prove a negative, so while I list three reasons for this, none of them is a complete proof and all these could be false. As far as I know the only Lego games to feature ghosts were either based on the Ghostbusters franchise, ...

Can anyone help me with this piece (either how to properly describe it when searching catalogues...) When searching Bricklink.com the syntax is specific too. It only comes up as: "2 x 2 plates" 2[space]x[space]2[space]plate(s) Anything different like typing only the singular word "plate", and you'll get no hits.

That's an old 650 Hinge Coupling Nylon - Two Connected 2 x 2 Plates from the 60s. It only ever came in 20 sets, but it's typically clear. It's listed as a possible alternate for the following set, but it's possible other sets could have had it as an alternate too. 901-2 2 Large Wheels with Accessories

Terminology This is the most basic terminology in a single image: A bit more verbose version is found in this slideshow, but there are a few factual errors, highlighted in the comments below. The various parts are named based on their main characteristics, then their sizes in studs, as seen here: After getting the hang of it, it's time to advance to ...
