    Help with identifying parts/sets!

    You're looking at the mast of a pirate boat. (Or some other masted ship) https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=4844&idColor=11#T=S&C=11&O={"color":11,"iconly":0}

    Thanks @CastleRail! I found another couple in a bulk lot I picked up this afternoon. Just wish it had included the Mandalorians with them.

    Unpopular Opinions about LEGO

    I don't know what the rules are on commenting on someone's unpopular opinion, but 3 medieval castle and 2 viking sets in almost a decade is too much? It sounds like you're not happy that it beat out put-put mini golf. I would have been happy with either, but after almost 10 years we castle and viking fans are hungry for more sets and parts.

    I recently found these two capes (brown and olive green) in a lot I bought. They feel like LEGO capes, but they are much narrower than the official cape that I know and love. Did someone take scissors to the official capes or was there a narrower version of the cape made at some point?
  5. Not my proudest moment, but someone threw away a large bag of LEGO by our community dumpster. There was some foul smelling stuff in the bag. I remember seeing food bits and some of it was slimy. I rinsed it off outside and then filled up a two large king sized pillow cases and ran them through the dishwasher a couple of times. The collection spanned back to the early 90s and was worth the effort, even if it was pretty gross. Not gross, but I've found a really nice Star Trek communicator pin. Most large lots will include coins, marbles, beads, and hair of all sorts.
  6. I find that when I sort through my bricks it gives me an idea of what I have available. As for how to then find those pieces, that depends on how you sort your bricks. This should probably go under the Unpopular Opinions thread, but I'm a fan of sorting by color and type. I break it down to bins for colors and then the colors into 1x* bricks, 2x* bricks, 1x* plates, other plates, tiles, etc. For more specialized parts I sort them by type: slopes, arches, jumpers, doors, etc. Mark from LEGO Masters shows a similar system off in this video As for containers, you can choose anything that works for you and your space. There is a thread in this topic dedicated to sorting options:

    40567 Forest Hideout (GWP)

    Those of us that waited got burned in the end.

    40567 Forest Hideout (GWP)

    Same here. I was going to buy the Castle this week for the Forrest Hideout. Now I'll just wait for Double VIP Points, a decent GWP, or a celebration (Holiday/Birthday).
  9. Same here. If I wait one day I can get the castle, forest hideout, and the pirate pack. What if we all make a pact to wait one day to buy the castle, that will work right?

    I'm hesitantly excited. He posted another image with 3 of them. So he's either really trying to prank us all or he actually found them in BAM. I'm hoping that they are in BAM as I would love to get my hands on a few of them.

  12. Someone has created something for LEGO Ideas using Minifigures and (I'm guessing) the Iron Man mask https://ideas.lego.com/projects/a24f7d5b-60dc-4bc3-8f0b-101310a18dd5

    Thanks @AmperZand! Now I have to go buy some moon warriors, purple capes and that double bladed thing on the helmet.

    I noticed that this morning as well! I had been hoping to place one order for all of the squirrels, but my greed might have caused me to miss out on the new squirrels.
  15. I pulled some off of the shelf (please excuse the dust) and it looks like the 2013 barding is slightly shorter and has lost the horn or point on the pommel. When I was putting everything back together I discovered that you can put the LOTR wargs can wear the new barding backwards. Original Riders
