  1. I have at least a few pieces and a tire that haven't be touched in many many years on top shelf of closet inside plastic tub that have some slight melted indentation. I have another plastic tub on bottom shelf with a bunch of Mixel balljoints that became way too loose to use without risking breaking. I also have a recently ordered 6x12 white plate that I noticed today isn't straight but slightly curved and it feels a bit soft and flexible. I don't recall my store bought Pick-A-Brick green 6x12 plates like that.

    Help with identifying parts/sets!

    Are there any Lego pieces that could be used to make a secure keychain holder for the new Apple Air Tag which is supposed to be 31.9mm x 31.9mm and 8mm thick circular disk? I'd rather not buy a silicone one because it'll break.

    I've been wanting the 1x6x5 wall element for a train car.

    how to sanitize bricks

    I've been using a tiny bit of powdered laundry detergent inside a Slurpee cup. Regular bath soap tends to leave some residue when not rinsed thoroughly. I saw soap particles are shaped in a way that shreds virus particles.

    Does there exist something like 59349 1x6x5 wall element that has a window in the middle? Does the 24869 one piece rollercoaster wheels and axle work with anything other than the special rolllercoaster car piece? Thanks in advance.

    Lego Licensed Parts available from Bricks & Pieces

    I received three orders from Dec 2020 and Jan 2021 and pretty sure those were complete, no errors, no omissions. I've never heard of B&P partially completed orders sent, not counting combo PAB and B&P orders where those are sent separately. I'm itching to place another order if I can get one Black Falcon torso and legs, and am hoping with the big Lego Ideas vote results for Castle theme, maybe these updated Castle prints will be more available soon. I dug out an old Snowspeeder pilot from one of the very first yellow face Lego Star Wars sets and the helmet is really loose.

    Lego Licensed Parts available from Bricks & Pieces

    A recent B&P order had a prompt email confirmation with order number, then didn't show up in Order Status weeks later after a subsequent order did show up in Order Status. The first order ended up shipping, but still not in Order Status. Also, a printed licensed part from a 2012 set was available in B&P in 2020. It was only used once in a licensed themed set and twice in misc parts sets. If a licensed part becomes 8 yrs old, can I have hope to buy it on B&P?

    Thanks for the info on the Flex Rod. I may have seen it used in those Technic cars.

    What's the Design ID of that long pole/shaft/axle with ribs in that pic of the various parts from an order? How is that used? Seems like something that might come in handy. Is it flexible?

    SW Microfighters Series 8

    How often do they release a TIE Fighter? I want that windscreen piece.

    All My custom Jedi Interceptor ETA-2s

    I really want that cockpit piece and windscreen piece. Why is 50986 so hard to come by?
  13. I received an order from Amazon where the adhesive tape was never moistened and never actually sealed anything. It's a miracle the contents didn't fall out the unsealed box. I also received computer parts in an unpadded envelope with absolutely no protection. No box.

    Lego sorting tips & tricks + limited storage space

    I'm going to use a yogurt tub to store some specialized parts like maybe cockpits/windscreens or train parts. I have some Plano organizers for some parts, and plan to buy a smaller Husky organizer for minifigure parts. I also use some empty fast food plastic containers with lids with vent holes.

    Is there such a piece that connects to 30554 connector friction stub bush that ends up connecting to a crossaxle? I'm thinking about using these types of pieces instead of Mixel balljoints which became really loose.

    Technic pieces always cracking

    I haven't had Technic pieces break, but did buy a ton of Mixel balljoints and those became really loose. I had robot arm clutch pieces crack.

    Keeping track of parts or buying new ones?

    You could use Lego Digital Designer to recreate it and then output the instructions as well as CTRL+K to screenshot it from whatever angle you want. I'm trying to use a database to keep track of what parts I have because I forget I already ordered some special parts and order it again.

    Actual human being facemask nose piece. I experimented and now am using: 15462 5M axle with stop 3705 4M axle 32039 catch with cross hole It's 90 degrees, but not that bad at creating decent seal around nose. I thought about those really old space arm pieces where it's cylindrical and one end has 3 prongs and other end 2 prongs, but no idea if those keep the shape or if I'll be able to order some.

    Is there such a piece that would be a good nose piece for a COVID facemask to create a "U" shape? From LDD, I saw there's a curved arch piece, but 6M might be too wide. I did experiment with using Technic short axles and one of those Technic axle elbows, but it's an "L" shape.

    Help with identifying parts/sets!

    I found that using the software Lego Digital Designer with expanded parts list helps see what parts exist, get a somewhat 360 degree view of it, and use Export BOM to see the Design ID. This is good if you don't know the terminology of the parts. My question: Does a part exist that lets you use a 0-80 miniature machine screw to attach a Lego part to a flat surface and then attach other Lego parts via cross axle hole or Technic snap? I originally tried to use the Lego crank part, but the 0-80 screw is too narrow for the hole and a nut on the screw makes the .5" screw too short to anchor. Second issue: I noticed 32009 has a similar looking part that has a newer debut date and different part number. I'm guessing they made some change to the part design either materials used or some other hard to notice difference. Any idea what the difference is?

    Do 46304 or 28976 goggles work with 35458 new helmet? I'm looking for other visor type parts that work with this new helmet.
  22. I vaguely remember there was a Batman Gotham Police 3 minifigure pack in the past few years. In addition, recently when browsing Bricks & Pieces Design ID 76382, I remember seeing a lot of police torsos variations.

    UV - resistant mat / cover ??

    Have you considered fabric with a tight weave that's known to provide UPF sun protection? Maybe a curtain made out of fabric that blocks UV? I thought certain types of glass inherently block UV light.

    LEGO element/design number

    For torsos, also see 16360, 88585. I'm not aware of other parts with printing that are listed under one Design ID. If there's a particular torso you want, it's probably better to enter the Element ID. For legs, try 21019. What's puzzling is when the same part is listed under multiple Design ID numbers. I don't know if maybe the type of plastic is different or if there's some other subtle difference.

    If you actually have the part, and have a magnifying glass, sometimes the Design ID is on the part itself.
