    Are LEGO stickers pad printed?

    Thanks for the responses. Screen printing would also make a lot of sense. It wasn't apparent to me that it would be cheaper than pad printing.

    I go *big* with my MOCs. I want to do a medieval scene some day and want to make sure I have enough sheep for a big flock when the time comes. Sadly I only have 2 goats and spotted cows since I only came out of my dark age in 2015. I have serious FOMO when good stuff shows up on B&P!

    Relatively tightly packed in a bag, but then that was shipped in a box. not a bubble mailer. Might be wrong, but I don't think the black head/legs or white wool are painted though; they are dual molded and the white eyes are the only printing.

    I just got an order in the U.S. after waiting for about a month. I had ordered a large number of sheep and was surprised to find a large percentage of them were deeply scratched from all being shipped in one bag together. It's not just normal scuffing like you see when they ship transparent pieces; the black plastic seems to have come off on the white plastic and it doesn't rub off. Here's the picture of what they look like, is anyone else running into this quality issue?
  5. I recently bought 6x sticker sheets from the LEGO Darth Vader Meditation Chamber 75296 set and noticed an interesting detail. The different colors in the image were all aligned slightly differently relative to each other. I attached a picture of all six so you can see for yourself. It's most noticeable when you look at the minifig eyebrows or the red/blue rectangles in the badges. I've seen this color alignment issue before on minifigs which is characteristic of pad printing, but I've never seen it on a sticker sheet before. Has anyone else seen this before? Is LEGO pad printing their stickers and is this new?

    This is a game changer, thanks so much!

    these figures are original?

    A large amount of plastic gets destroyed before leaving the factory due to quality control purposes. The amount of plastic that was used to make a handful of these minifigs is probably not significant compared to the amount that gets destroyed. As for how would someone hook up the trans-clear plastic to the Darth Vader mold, I don't think anyone here is going to have a good answer. We don't actually know how those machines work. There's also an assumption that this is a single rogue employee rather than a group of employees working together which we don't know is true.

    I've bought and received that successfully in the past (over a year ago). Maybe place another order for it?

    That does describe these minifigs though. The joints on the translucent minifigs are very stiff. They probably would risk breaking if you popped them out a couple times.

    The sellers who have many of these parts sometimes sell LEGO minifigs months before the sets release if you know where to look. They definitely have some sort of factory connection. No point speculating how an employee could or couldn't do this.

    I've bought some of these and I'm pretty sure they're from the real LEGO molds. The shape and color exactly match the official LEGO shape/color. They also have the LEGO imprint on the plastic in the correct places. They're definitely not painted.

    I received the new trans-clear glass 6278080 a couple days ago. It came in a bag with everything else and was scratched. I guess there are just specific pieces that they protect like that.

    Your part is indeed in the set, but they are talking about 37614 which is a new recolor in flat silver

    It's giving them the ability to log into any website as you without actually giving them the text of your password. That's how they place the order on lego.com for you.

    People really should not be using this tool. It's basically malware that hooks into your authentication on shop.lego.com, but you have to grant them all your credentials to all websites. Another downside is it prevents you from using referral discounts like rakuten.com. I couldn't technically find any current malicious problems with the code when I looked at it, but given that you've already granted them heavy permissions to install the plugin, they could push a silent update later and do whatever they want.
