    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.

    Cool, TIL! Curious how Rebrickable gets them now

    I thought in the past they would show up on brickset if they were in B&P though. Brickset currently has nothing for the new element IDs. I used brickset to find and buy the knight sword in series 20.

    One interesting thing is that the CMF 21 minifigs won't give you a part list on B&P so Brickset.com hasn't discovered the part numbers. However, for the recolors, B&P does have the individual parts if you search by design ID. Examples: * 65578 (the angled bar with stud) lets you find 6326748 which is the new LBG version from the beekeeper. * 3899 (cup) lets you find 6236213 which is the new silver version from the beekeeper. Sadly, these have price 0 right now so they aren't for sale. Has anyone discovered any other ones?

    Updating Your Minifigs

    Can someone please try combining Dodonna's legs on Captain Antilles' body? I'm curious how well those patterns match up.

    The eye printing is different. https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=87621pb01&C=104 vs https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=87621pb04 True, it did come out in the HP set later. They probably were in development together so it's a fair point.
