    Lego Licensed Parts available from Bricks & Pieces

    I'm not sure what's going on but today B&P is the buggiest I've ever seen it. When I try to add certain parts I get "an unexpected error occurred! Try again later." Then the icons on p.2 didn't load so I refreshed the page and got a blank screen with an error message saying I didn't have permission to view the page on that server. I tried just going back to and got that same error. After trying on a different browser, it started ok but eventually the same thing happened. Ultimately I got the same error using 3 browsers on 3 different computers. The issue persists even when clearing cache and logging out and back in to my lego account. Good job lego. Edit: and now I can access my parts bag again, but all the parts from today are there along with all the parts from the last order I placed. When I try to remove the old parts, it goes back to the "unexpected error" lockout.

    [MOC] Skyward DDF Poco

    DDF Poco-class starfighter, from Brandon Sanderson's Skyward! My design is based on the official artwork by Ben McSweeney, which in turn was based on the DDF pin designed by Isaac Stewart. Above: Jorgen piloting; plus Spensa, four Taynix slugs, and the cleaning droid from Cytonic. Above: Poco in landing position, with open canopy. Above: the underside of the Poco, showing the acclivity ring. Above: top view of the Poco. Above: alternate pose of the cleaning droid. I did submit this to Ideas, but I don't want to be spammy so I'll skip the URL. It's pretty easy to find by searching the Ideas site, though.

    The Batman accessories pack (design 50018) is available in the US in Grey Titan Metal (though still not in the original Silver Metallic). The new color isn't even shown on Bricklink so I don't know what set it is from. Cost is $1.90 USD.

    If you have one copy of a part, the design number will be printed on it somewhere in tiny print. Then if it is on B&P you can find the element ID by searching the design number. For example the centaur body is 67638 and is listed, but with a price of 0.00 USD.

    I don't know if they can do that exactly, but if you place an online order and then immediately call in then they can add to the online order. They can only add a small number of items on the phone (not sure exactly, but about 10-20 different part numbers). They will need your order number plus the long part number for each item you want to add, and you will probably also need your VIP number if you have one.

    film-free waterslide decals?

    I can verify all that Edd (Bricksanity) says here. I've had the same parts printed by MinifigFX,, and Bricksanity, and the fine detail comes across best with Bricksanity. To be fair, though, I haven't ordered from the other two in maybe two years so it is possible that they have upgraded since then. Also, all three have that grain that makes photos "speckled" with white for some reason. I think that the slightly irregular surface produced by any UV printing causes specular reflections which show up on camera, though they look great to the eye. Regarding curved parts, UV printers spray the ink on, so wrap-around prints on curved parts can only wrap as far as you can see from one look angle, as opposed to pad printing which can wrap a bit further since the ink pad squishes around the part as it applies the ink. That means that UV prints onto heads sometimes have trouble with sideburns and such. Also, I've recently seen posts by Minifig Madness Customs indicating that they also do small-batch UV prints now, though I haven't tried them yet.
  9. LPub3D 2.3.6 keeps crashing on me whenever I do something as simple as changing the font size in the assembly setup. About 80% of the time when I change any of the settings, LPub crashes and closes with no error message. I recently installed it on a new laptop via the LDraw all-in-one installer. I have the parts libraries installed, I can do the usual operations of adding steps to a page, making callouts, etc., so the program seems to be working, I just can't change the settings. My OS is Windows 10 Home, 64 bit. Does anyone know what might be happening or where else I could try asking for help? Thanks! EDIT: I registered an account on the ldraw forum, but the "new thread" button doesn't show up for me, so I can't seem to post there. :/

    Anyone know if B&P orders count towards promos, e.g. the Marvel Bricktober one currently live in the US? If so, today is a good day to order...

    Try the method in this thread, third post down, by Faefrost:
  12. Those are great! Would you mind sharing what printer and sticker material you use? Does the printer print white ink, or is the sticker on a white base? Also, did you feed the cloth through the printer too?

    B&P is becoming useless to me. Last week I ordered 12 plain brown torsos, but then a few days later they were canceled from the order because they are considered licensed. Apparently they have been used in one of the Chewie minfigs. I called to complain, and they agreed that it was a little silly and they reinstated that part of the order. Next day they got re-cancelled. New parts and recolors still take forever to show up online (if they ever do), and when they do show they are crazy expensive. For example the 1x1 double half-arch piece from the microscale Hogwarts was briefly available, but was $0.70 USD!

    Gold flame from Statue of Liberty (same mold as Capt Salazar's hair): 6234261, $1.50 USD. Torso, dark red, doorman print, from Capital City 60200: 6228868, $0.81 USD. Also, a while back a few of us were told by phone that the new animal parts, e.g. the eagle, would be available on the website on 6 July. That still hasn't happened; availability is still as sparse and mysterious as ever.
