JoelS posted a topic in General LEGO DiscussionHi, I am trying to post this question to Lego Historian if possible. I've been reading a similar thread about similar Lego sets getting different boxes in different regions..... but my question is a little different. I recently came across sets with the same product number and same name, but the sets are a bit different (colours, stickers etc). For example, I am a vintage castle fan and I'm currently looking at Lego Castle set 6080, and the common set I see is this one on the left in this picture...However, when I was looking for this product, I also discovered one from France with the same product code (6080) but different colours and markings (the castle on the right). My guess is that this was simply a way to appeal to the French market??? But if so, why not a different product code? Sorry for small pic, but you can't upload much.... links to sets on ebay below.... https://www.ebay.com/itm/LEGO-Vintage-Kings-Castle-6080/223485321258?epid=1140295689&hash=item3408c3602a:g:bYcAAOSwO~Zcj2do https://www.ebay.com/itm/LEGO-6080-LE-CHATEAU-DU-ROI-COMPLET-AVEC-PERSONNAGES-CHEVAUX-VINTAGE-DE-1984/273948538222?hash=item3fc89af56e:g:eH4AAOSwqulc1uij Just wondering you knew about this at all and is this common?

Hello! I saw a posting from you somewhere regarding cadmium in old legos. Do you know what year Lego actually stopped making bricks with cadmium? I read a post that they were supposed to in 73 but i read a recent article in a book on toxins that showed results from a test on 1979 bricks that contained insane amounts of cadmium and some results showing no cadmium in 1984 bricks. My son has recenly been playing with my vintage sets the oldest of which is a beta one command base probably 1982. Also, is it for sure only the yellow and red bricks? How about the gray bricks and the white bricks? Also I would like to read your chapter on cadmium but can't find your large download... thanks for your help! J
