    Lego Licensed Parts available from Bricks & Pieces

    I recommend using a Google Sheet or other spreadsheet to keep track of your wishlist, you can then use a formula to generate the link for you, as well as pull in images to show the elements directly in your spreadsheet. I don't see the point of denying the existence of improvements even if things can be improved further. For my use it is way better than the old B&P, so it deserves the praise. And it's not just the search, also the other things I mentioned in my earlier post.

    I think something got lost in translation there, that's what I said, to get a double fee both standard and bestseller needs to be below 12 EUR. I made no such claim and I'm not pretending anything, did you really read what I wrote? "I disagree about the search, it is much better now. If you prefer other sites for searching for items you want to buy, fine - that doesn't mean that the new BAP has not improved by quite a lot." What you can do with the new improvements in BAP is to set your page size to 400, and then select subcategory "Plates, Round & Angles" and you will find your half circles both solid, transparent and printed variations quite easily. Much better than the old B&P. You could also first search for "circle" and then select the subcategory to get a shorter list. The subcategories are great, I use them all time. You can also filter all available parts by color, much better than the old B&P. The #1 best new search feature is the multi-element search. I use a Google sheet to take note of elements I need /want. I have a formula in one cell to show the image based on element id, and a link is generated to the new BAP search that search for all elements that are available from that list. For example: https://www.lego.com/nb-no/pick-and-build/pick-a-brick?query=6250597+6251070+6378417&amp;page=1&amp;perPage=200&amp;includeOutOfStock=true

    I have no problem avoiding the fee, the 12 Euro limit to avoid fees is pretty low in my opinion. To get a 9 eur fee you need to fail to buy 12 eur worth of bricks from either. I don't see the problem with some parts arriving quicker if you order both bestseller and standard? I disagree about the search, it is much better now. If you prefer other sites for searching for items you want to buy, fine - that doesn't mean that the new BAP has not improved by quite a lot. If you prefer to buy stuff from China, go ahead - BAP does not prevent you from doing that.

    Except for new parts being late to arrive almost everything is better. Top of my head, I can't think of anything that is worse. - Search is better - Search now supports multiple element id's so it's super quick to search for items from my wishlist in a single search - You can select to show 400 elements per page now, instead of the endless "show more" clicks - It is easier to browse by category - It is easier to browse by color - Cart works better, no more nuked carts - BAP now qualifies for GWPs

    Have they really said November? I've seen no mention of November in any of the statements from LAN that have been shared (but I may have missed it). Part of one of the statements I have seen was "The intention going forward will be to launch novelty elements 4 months after release after things catch up (but may be different times for different types of elements (functional bricks, ect)". I definitely have seen people adding 4 months to whatever month contained sets they wanted parts from and arriving at October/November/December, maybe that is where November came from? Considering Jan - May elements have only been partially released to selected countries, I think they are behind their schedule. Jan - May release was said to take "a few weeks" almost 3 weeks ago. Meaning the rush of orders following release have not fully happened yet, so the orders they should catch up with have not even been placed. I'm not overly optimistic about when stuff I'd like to be will be available unfortunately. They have implemented support for limiting quantities on individual elements though, so some of the things that usually sell out quickly will stay a bit longer in stock

    Wizarding World 2022 - Rumors & Discussion

    I am not super excited about those minifigures to be honest. There are some nice ones, but I think I could do without them. The train looks pretty nice though, will probably end up buying it anyway.

    10497 Galaxy Explorer 90th anniversary set

    I built it yesterday as soon as it arrived, what a glorious set! Ordered a 2nd one right away so I can have a go at one of the alternative models
  11. That set is it's own thing for sure :D Still, I don't mind LEGO SW occasionally trying something different, and I prefer more location sets in general. I like the figs, the robot is particularly nice. Will get it for sure.

    LEGO Videogame Tie-Ins - Rumors & Discussion

    I built the Tallneck yesterday, amazing set! Fun build, looks fantastic on display. The minifigure is fabulous. I'd recommend it to anyone! I hadn't played any of the Horizon games before I ordered this, but finally managed to get a PS5 before the set arrived so technically I had played the game for about 1 hour before building the set.

    If it's any consolation, I only got the e-mail for 6 of my 7 pending orders.
