Funny how the Dimensions figure sells for half the price of the Ideas figure,
but has a part out value a few dollars higher due to the hair.

The hair from the dimensions set is much rarer than the hair from the ideas set.

Looks like someone's simply changed idea002 when the dimensions set came

  If so, what process is used to change the additional
notes?

Just post to the Catalog Requests topic here in the forum and be specific about
which changes you would like. The catalog administrators are good about keeping
up with change requests, so you shouldn't have any problems.

Here's a successful request I recently made for corrections to additional
notes:

  From talking to some employees at two different stores, it looks like we were
both right: these minifigs were given out to managers at the Houston meeting,
but by the bag -- they were then to be taken back to the stores and given
out to new employees.

Regarding the position of the nametag, the fig on the left is the normal employee
fig with the nametag on the figure's right side. The fig on the right was
given to employees who worked at the the last Kidsfest (I think it was the last
Kidsfest, not 100% sure), and it has the nametag on the incorrect side. The
LEGO logo is also significantly different between the two.

I acquired this Minifig today from a non-manager and became curious given the
Catalog note. I called directly to my local LEGO store manager and asked about
this figure, leaving out that I had just bought one. He confirmed that these
were given in small bulk to managers to redistribute to their employees. But
he did it as a 1-time thing, and told me they are long gone. Other managers
may have chosen to do different things with them.

He also confirmed that the Minifig given out to managers at the meeting was,
in fact, a zombie. He said it was the same figure as the store employee, but
with a zombie head. That is the one that is ultra-rare, exclusive to TLS Managers.
So the notes on TLS087 are technically wrong. I will see about amending them
now.

  Hello,
Not sure what the procedure is for getting a new part added or if is a new part.
I have come across a modified tile, trans light blue, with Iron Man and Tony
Stark Printed on it. The only one similar listed is a sticker but is a mirror
image with several differences. This might be a copy but the tile is exactly
the same as some I have which are marked (c)Lego.
This part has "A227-00" stamped on back on the non hinge end and also "6" on
the hinge end. You can see these on the photo but not very well.
Please let me know what you think.
Many Thanks

It's this part of it's a clone:

Thanks for your reply, what make is the clone as I might have more bits of Tony
Stark which I need to identify so I don't try and list them on Bricklink.
Cheers

Set No: 6970  Name: Beta I Command Base

6970-1 (Inv) Beta I Command Base
247 Parts, 4 Minifigs, 1980
Sets: Space: Classic Space
. http://rebrickable.com/forum/index.php?/topic/550-please-report-any-missing-or-incorrect-sets-here/&do=findComment&comment=13099
This set was confirmed at Peeron by maggiec and John P. The Peeron inventory,
based on the instructions, shows a total of 3 with 1 being extra.
The BrickLink catalog entry doesn't have the extra. There isn't a source
listed.
I have the set, but it was played with by my son, so not a reliable source.

Does anyone have a reliable source for this 37 year old set?
Thanks for any help in clearing this up.

Thea
Always An Adventure!

I looked at the peeron scans and thought-Instructions never have 9 pages. So
I went and dug out mine and solved the mystery.
Pg 10-11 show only 2 radios in the final model. See scan below.
The picture at the top of instruction page 1 is the same as the box cover and
shows 3.

Now it is up to each fan-site to determine which picture they will use for inventory
purposes.

Personally I found researching this had another small reward in seeing that beautiful
space flag.

Thea
Always An Adventure!

There are a number of missing pages and other issues with the AFOL "classical"
body of instruction scans which were first assembled at Peeron and then were
also copied over to Brickfactory. I think there are some other sites, too, that
have tapped into this publicly-collected archive.

I have tried in the past to correct some of these problems by communicating with
sites and sending scans, but to no avail. There was either nobody home or some
complication with file format, etc. One persistent individual I spoke with eventually
did have success with adding some images to Peeron, but that was before Peeron
stopped adding inventories.

So my question is, would a site like Rebrickable (or somewhere else) be interested
in hosting a "supplement" to the big collection? We are finding more and more
cases of multiple versions of instructions as well, and other than the protected
inventory threads at BL, there is no other good place to store them. So in the
case of set 6970, all that would need to be stored are the two pages you provided.

Russell

Nathan has said that he won't store instructions on the Rebrickable site.
However, an individual can use the site he created, bricksafe.com, to store
files and images, and reference them for their MOCs, or make them available for
use in the Rebrickable Forum, or the Rebrickable notes on sets and parts.

If anyone would like the HUGE scans Paul did for the missing 3 pages of 6970-1
instructions, just send me a private BrickLink message with your email, and I'll
be happy to send them. The picture I used here at BrickLink was merged and greatly
reduced in size.

Why is this part called 'Technic Pole Reverse Handle'?

I would call it some kind of 'axle connector perpendicular' and search
under 'Technic, Connector'. However, it is listed under 'Technic,
Axle'. Makes me wonder why?

Hans-Peter

It was originally used in combination with this part. http://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=6551c01&idColor=9#T=P&C=9

Obviously, now it is used in a great number of applications and part of the standard
technic connector arsenal, while the pole reverser switch has long since become
defunct. I agree that the categorization is a bit odd.
