I think the white axle pin is not a new part and just has a bad digital image on rebrickable. so it is still semi-frictioned and just a white variant of pin with  2L axle.

Ima stop replying now because this gets more confusing every time I do.

It's quite simple. It's just a flywheel. No ripcord like on the Chima Speedorz. Look at the picture :classic:

Cheers,

But the Rebrickable name is literally "Technic Axle Pin 3L with No Friction Ridges and 2L Axle" (emphasis added).

Why use Spraypaint? They should have just ordered them from from GoBricks.cn: Link :laugh_hard:

I wish LEGO would put extra stock of these new colors for sale online or at least use them in sets in the near future. I collect parts like these (trans-clear axle, prototype liftarm to name a few), and they are very very hard to find. I don’t want to give in to the clone bricks so rare elements like these are the best option.

They say they've produced 20 new special pieces for this real size Sian!

For those, who claim about color mismatches in the Sian, finally here is a corrective action from TLG:

At 2:53 in that racingbrick video Siān is on dark grey wheels. And also there is visible color incosistency - vertical 7L beam near rear wheel.

No worries - parts from this Sian may never be available in any other sets.

Funny how at the start of the video all the pins are a tan colour, because deep down they know the blue ones look terrible :snicker:

So, I made an order to B&P. They promised a delivery time of at least 5 weeks, but the order arrived today, after just over 2 weeks. And I got 2 extra of 71682 in yellow.

I also ordered the new panel extenders, and yeah, the alignment issues with the axlehole are strongly present:

I arranged them so the differences would be apparent, 2x4 beams for reference.

Curiously, the black parts seem to be divided into two categories with misalignment to opposite directions, while the yellow ones have much more variation. None of the black and maybe one of the yellow ones align correctly though. I wonder if I should contact customer service about this?

I did. 4 out of 10 pieces had alignment issues I contact support and they sent me replacement. And new pieces also had alignment issues :D I stopped there. It is sad that quality drops, but I will not contact support again (about this order at least).

I contacted TLG for replacement of that part and it was probably the first time in 4-5 years that I ordered replacement part. Not only my order was canceled but my account was also banned from making further orders in the future. The email said it was not a decision TLG took lightly but it felt like an automatic response. No actual reason was given.

I'm still a bit bitter about that.

It worked in my case. Here I wrote what I did:

That sounds unreasonably harsh! I had the opposite experience (see above), they sent me a full new batch after only expressing my "disappointment".
