My big B&P order contained 4 copies of part 6223854 (medical torso). One of those copies was missing an arm (as you can see in the loot shots). Contacted LEGO asking for a replacement and they sent me 2 copies of the part 6223854 rather than just a single replacement copy (both copies were all as they should be)

 

Oh sorry, I read it wrong

Attempt to order last Friday failed ("access denied message"), but was successful today. Anyway, I found some cool pieces available:

6258826 https://brickset.com/parts/6258826/double-sphere-2x2x1-2-3-w-knob-no-15 At €1,77 this is not cheap, but current BL price starts at €5,22!

6221776 https://brickset.com/parts/design-37837 (combine with https://brickset.com/parts/6199468/mini-hat-no-46 for a monochrome BB-8)

6218117 https://brickset.com/parts/6218117

I noticed my last order had +10% in pretty much all lots, that's cool. Is that a new thing?

How do you mean? As in, for every 10 pieces of the same element you got an 11th for free?

This thread is so dangerous!! Every time I check in here it ends with a new order of Bricks&Pieces :laugh:. Last order, placed yesterday, I have to blame @Exetrius for, and his LBG "Wheel With Spokes Ø33.8" which startet a new search ending in yet another order, haha... :ugh:

Exactly.  In fact even a search on B&P is dangerous.

I've seen some people in this thread mentioning that they were able to get the mid-legs from bricks and pieces. I think they mentioned that they called in the order to get it added but I'm not sure. Is this still possible and how is it done?

Don't mind the Disney tile. I just put that as a focal point for the table and forgot to take it off. :iamded_lol:

@Clahador Wow! How many hundreds of dollars did that set you back?

Around $250? I used VIP points for the remaining amount. The order was placed before they started shutting down on early September (hence the random out of stock parts going through with the order; in particular the 2x4 printed tiles next to the teacups were substituted parts).

Took me this long to post it here, sorry for not updating y'all. :)

I said don't mind it since I didn't get it from B&P.

I was setting up the table to do a parts picture for y'all and placed that as the center where all the elements would start falling into place. They don't sell it available because it's licensed.

Ok now we have to see this mountain lion versus alligator battle. Make it happen.

I'll try. I wanted the mountain lions to chase after some skiers for the Winter Village Display.... then the alligators looked cool in general (you can never have enough gators).

A really nice lot @Clahador with a lot of animals :sweet:
Interestingly enough I asked Lego about the price for the Pegasus parts from HP earlier, but got the reply that they were licensed and not for sale.
Since you have bought the wings I checked again and now is every part for sale even the horse (,but it is expensive) *huh*

That hasn't stopped them in the past! I have bought loads of licensed parts via B+P. Unfortunately they are getting better at keeping licensed parts off there, but some still slip through.

So Lego has just announced it has acquired Bricklink. I wonder what this will mean for B+P?

Bricklink’s customer service seems to be non-existent so this to me a great thing. Maybe Bricklink will be the new B+P? I’m excited to see what this means.

Brickset interviewed an executive from Lego regarding acquiring Bricklink and brickset asked about Bricks and Pieces (of course this could all change):

Quote

How might this affect LEGO's existing methods for selling individual parts, such as Bricks and Pieces?

Julia: BrickLink provides an opportunity for us to better understand what needs people have. There are no plans for immediate changes but I think there is potential to evolve and improve that service within LEGO to the AFOL community. At the moment, we have various methods of providing bulk or individual brick purchasing but BrickLink could certainly assist us with continuing development.

I see this as a dangerous development. I liked the fact that Bricklink was independent and gave us another option to buy parts. I don't think they'll do much in the first months/years and simply update some things, patch some bugs and integrate links to their website, however in the long run who knows what they will do. They also state that they probably won't allow third party parts like realistic guns (I don't care for these, but there was no problem when Lego wasn't involved). I assume they see Stud.io as a follow up to LDD which could be nice if they keep supporting the application. 

They probably bought it for all the data BL provides.

Thank you. Glad to see another HP fan, I actually just finished completing mine (didn't get the microbuild Hogwarts set though since it's not to scale but I do have both of the recent waves).   :pir-laugh:

And yes, I had the same response from LEGO CSTeam regarding the Pegasus wings prior and I remember reasoning out that the wings and horse shouldn't necessarily be licensed as it's not a specific mold / print-- as I wanted to order a few of them for it to be closer to the movies (I currently have 4 Pegasi pulling the carriage but I may want to source out the Winter Village Marketplace horse if I'd want to go all out though those costs alot so I only got the wings).

Most likely the wings and horse would reappear in another set for 2020. The pieces seem to be generic enough for it to happen.

Just a head's up: They also said that there's an olive green version of the plant shoot element coming out in 2020 (I ordered the green) and it's currently under production. As for what set, they didn't know but it is in their system.

P.S.
It's still too early to say what's in store for BrickLink. The following is purely speculation on my part, but I do believe that all the interviews glossed over asking Julia Goldin that one other function BrickLink is known for: selling discontinued sets and themes (which is so weird as they asked about parts, Stud.io, and MOC sets but not this).

Conservatively and optimistically speaking, they might just want to study trends... such as what's the market profitability for old sets and parts as well as community spending habits.

For all we know they might use BrickLink as a gage for:

  • Which retired sets would be good to re-produce (like what they did for Winter Village Marketplace and Taj Mahal).
  • Which classic lines to resurrect (Castle / Pirates / Space / Galidor [:iamded_lol:]).
  • The impact of region-specific releases (CNY / SW Target) as well as SDCC exclusives (maybe they might want to do a limited release).

BrickLink has been the biggest online marketplace for the aforementioned points, thus they have the trends and data for LEGO to learn from.

Sure, it might be to help improve B&P and LDD, but I do believe that they did this buy out for this purpose. If you reread the interviews again with this in mind it does seem very plausible so that they can "respond DIRECTLY to what the fans really want from LEGO."

 

They already did it with Harry Potter be re-releasing such a beloved (and expensive second market) theme so this theory of mine seems to check out for the time being. :purrr:

I agree and my plan is to buy the wings of B&P and the horses on BL when I find a good deal there..
I find it a little frustrating that the horse which is the first Lego animal mould made back in the day is so expensive and rare now a days since there is several years between every set that has one :hmpf:

Do not this page update, since the mention parts are not in there?
