If posted in wrong section please move to appropriate forum.

I just finished building this set (well my son did) and I have no idea where the these two bricks go.  There are 6 of them that come with the set and for the life of me I have no idea where the other two go.
Here is a picutre of where four of them go.
Any help would be great.

Alot of times you get extra pieces, if it is structuraly sound and it doesn't look akward, then I would assume you have 2 extra's.

I agree that we always get extra pieces but it says 6x that brick in the instruction manual.  That's why I am stumped!?!

Having 2 of those as extras sounds like a "in-build"-mistake.
You must have missed adding them at some point.

Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't catch that part.  Well if the instructions are online somewhere, I'll page through them and see if I can help.  I have built this set before, but it was a few months ago.

edit: I got itoff LEGO's site, I'm looking right now.

Step 8, according to the instructions downloaded from Lego Customer Services (I don't have this set   :sadnew: )

I think those are the ones you've missed - hard to tell the black on black on the computer screen.

Hope that helps.

Looks like step 8 has 2 of them.

edit: dangit, I had the reply box open for like 15 minutes while I researched.  I went through the whole thing and started over and then I caught it, only to be beaten to the punch.

Hi 4olic,

I think we've all had that same problem one time or another.  :laugh:
In my case it has been mixing up the black with the dark grey colour.
And it happened with putting together 10188, the Death Star; I can tell you that was pretty nasty  :grin:

I can give you only one advice that is: go back in your manual and look for the appropriate parts,
and than look at your set if you've used the right parts. Even if you have to go back to page 1.
I'm not a fool... I'm an AFOL!

Thanks everybody for the reply!
Yeah, step 8 was where I missed it.  I looked over the instructions 3 times before turning to the forums for help.  Guess I need to check my eyesight.  :thumbdown:
Good thing it was an easy fix and I can only imagine missing a step on a big build such as the death star and then trying to go back and fix it.  Head ache galour!
Happy building everyone!!  :thumbup:

Glad to help.  Some of those darker background instructions get tricky becasue dark pieces get lost.
