Just found this on Brickshelf:

Has anyone ever seen this list? What could that be? I´ve never read that setnumber either.

It is a 2007 exo-force promo set, however I cannot find any pics of it.

And I thought I HAVE all those promo sets of 2007  *wacko*

If you can find a pic, please post it! :-)




EDIT: I just found out while searching for pics of this, that there´s even another Promo set, 3887. I WANT THESE! :-D

Another EDIT:

I just checked lego.com, and it appears that most parts in 3872 are singles, and only a few are twice in the bag.
These are the parts that have to be present twice:
1x6 black plate
1x2 black plate modified with arm
the black round thingie which I suppose shall be the wheels
robot arms
robot hands
robot legs
1x1 trans red slope

If ANYONE has these parts, please try your best to build something that could look like a Robo Chopper :-D I´m curious if it´s possible to come up with some cool designs...

I couldn´t find pics either. Not on Google, not on Brickshelf, not on Peeron, not on Amazon, not on ebay...
All I could find was this parts list. It´s a shame TLC doesn´t offer a picture of the set on their website :-(

You could try their cache or online instructions?

They don´t have the instructions online. I already checked that.
How can I access their cache?


EDIT:
Trying doesn´t hurt... I clicked my way through the parts-missing support and wrote a little letter, asking if it is somehow possible to get the building instructions. Now I guess we´ll just have to wait and see...

http://cache.lego.co...000-xx-13-1.jpg

Or something like that!

However it appears the set is not on Lego's cache either.....

True, those mini Promo sets usually aren´t a pot full of gold under the end of the rainbow.

But still, it´s Exo Force, and I really dig that theme. So whatever set there is, I at least need to know what it looks like.
I´m happy enough to have some of the first Robot promos, the 5965. Those are already rare, to say the least. But knowing that there are sets out there, and even knowing the parts, but not a single idea what the set might look like - that really bugs me a lot  :-|

Posted 21 August 2008 - 09:38 PM

Finally I opened my parts bin to see if I actually have all the parts to build this set.
Sadly, I´m missing some essential parts, namely both yellow parts, the black round thingies and the black technic beam.

Could anyone maybe help me out with naming those parts to find them on BL?

Or maybe someone has those parts and is willing to sell them? I would love to build 4 of those, so I would need every part 4 times.

Any help is really appreciated! :cry_happy:



EDIT:
Never mind, just found the parts.
