    How common are missing pieces?

    Not sure if anyone else has noticed this recently or not, but it seems maybe Lego’s quality control is slipping a bit. Perhaps it’s in a rush to get out a backlog of orders now with the reopening of factories. So we got our UCS Millennium Falcon last week after it was finally in stock again. After bag 4, we are already missing 3 pieces! One 1x2 LBG plate, one Technic Pin, and a black 1x2 grille piece. We very carefully remove all pieces from each bag as we always do, so this is very out of the norm for sure. Even double checked the empty bags. Nothing. No big deal as I had all three but I have never had a single missing piece in a set. Ever. I hope Lego isn’t rushing out sets and hopefully they go back to better quality control. I would rather wait a bit longer if it meant no more missing pieces.

    [MOD] Updating Your Pirates Of The Caribbean Minifigures

    I would love to see this too. Might be better though to put this in the Pirates forum.

    Lego Licensed Parts available from Bricks & Pieces

    Same thing happened to me, but keep trying. It finally worked for me the second time, though had to refill my cart again. Also, this may or may not interest members in this forum, but the new anglerfish, ray, and hammerhead are available. New great white was out of stock.
  6. Started building this set and it’s a lot of fun so far. The pipe organ, The Organ of Catarino, is great. Fantastic build, the printed tile keys are a nice feature. Von Barron had this organ custom built in Portugal. He mostly used it to play TV show theme songs 😅

    Updating Your Minifigs

    In the new ocean explorer ship, is that a new hair piece for the female minifig in the middle or is that a solid black piece similar to Daisy Kaboom’s? Either way looks like a good fit for Cara Dune though the part is on the other side it still may work...sorry for the bad pic, copied it off Lego shop site...

    Fairground Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    The rechargeable battery box is (was) great. Easy to control the speed. I used one for the Ferris wheel to reduce the speed since the regular battery boxes go too fast for the fairground sets. Unfortunately found out Lego has discontinued the rechargeable box. On Bricklink it’s already doubled in price. I wanted one for the roller coaster so the ride up is nice and slow. Instead I bought a 50cm Power functions connector so that all the rides can use the one rechargeable box. Works great. Too bad Lego has discontinued the PF rechargeable box.

    Updating Your Minifigs

    Ah yes, Bard looks like a good fit. Baze too. Others are decent ones as well, thanks for the input. Now that the Razor Crest is coming with perhaps a new Mando fig, may wait and see if they will include an updated head or not.

    Updating Your Minifigs

    Speaking of Mandalorian updates, anyone have a good suggestion for Pascal's head? Was thinking of maybe Tasu Leech's head or even Tony Stark's. Or another alternative? Thanks...

    [PRESS RELEASE] 75936 - Jurassic Park

    Haven’t had this issue but I did adjust the head a bit. I switched the 2x2 modified brick with the ball with the regular 2x2 brick underneath it. That raises the head a bit and looks better IMO. Maybe that will help with stability I don’t know.
