  1. Can you verify that the number molded on the part is 33909? It is already added to the set with that number.
  2. It could also specify which mold was used and at what factory. There are too many possibilities to be able to say for sure with the new dual injection process and more than 1 factory. I'm working on sets 4962. There are many corrections that need to be made in the assigned DUPLO part numbers, so all DUPLO set inventories may look REALLY messed up for periods of time.
  3. I ran a test and got the same results. Possible temporary solution until Nathan gets it solved -- create a new custom list and move all the sets you want to delete to that new list. I was able to move the sets in my test.
  4. Do they all have a moveable part? Or have 2 parts joined together? This type of number is turning up on most assemblies. The new Jungle cats from my sets have similar type numbers/letters molded on them. I'm not going to take one of the cats apart, but I would speculate that the actual part number is molded on the inside of the separate parts.

    DUPLO (at last)

    From time to time this month I will need the number that is actually molded on a DUPLO part. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Here's the first one. 25384 or any of the other 'pick-up-element-4x8' There are 5 known prints of this pick-up truck body, each with its own design ID. They all need to be mapped as a print to the molded part number.

    DUPLO (at last)

    Duplo got put to the side because of launching v3. Thanks to all who have been waiting so patiently. During August I'm going to be devoting much of my rebrickable time to Duplo. The first part of the project is concentrating on adding or correcting recent/currently available Sets (anything after 2011 when peeron stopped adding sets). I will work on sets that have been mentioned in the Forum first, but I would ask that everyone please wait for about a week before making change requests or set/part submissions for these or any other Duplo sets. There are a lot of sets that I'll be adding/correcting through downloads from lego.com during the next week. Sometimes the corrections need time to process through the cache (or my brain ...).
  7. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. It certainly looks like the set needs some attention. Please see my post in the News Topic.
  8. I wasn't getting emails for parts I submitted and approved. Please check your Settings>Notifications on the main site. I found mine had been disabled by the system. This is probably because you and I each generated many many emails through our requests and submissions.
  9. I've applied a normalization process to the part 71610pb01. That causes the part to be disabled again, but it should have auto-corrected any loose part lists. It should also solve the problem for any other members who had it in a previous back-up list when they need to import. If you have any further problems with the part, let us know here. While working on the pb01 boat hull, I noticed that BrickLink indicates that 71610pb02 is also a stickered part. However, since the stickers were pre-applied at the factory, this will be treated as a printed part and the number left as is.
  10. Something you could do is move(use) the sets that have a large number of pieces you need out of your main list. This may show you that by the time you get to that 20th set, you only have a few pieces in it that you need. You could pull those just using the find parts screen. You might be able to do the same for set 19, 18, 17, and so on until you have a more manageable display. I would also say that the key is to remember the Find Parts doesn't make any changes to your rebrickable inventory, so you can try different methods to find the one that suits you.
  11. This set was added at the first of the year when we were having all sorts of weird parts showing up in the lego downloads. I'll take a look at it later tonight. Update--The set should be complete now, but there are some parts that still need descriptions.
  12. Thanks for the response. I took a quick look at the chart. Looks like some useful info there. I've added it to my 'to-do list', but it will be a while before I can work on it.
  13. Thanks to our LDraw 'go to' member. I know so little about the program that I need answers like this all the time.
  14. I've changed the mapping for the LDraw to u8012. Please let me know if the image shows the part(disregarding color) correctly now. I think the color may be the reason it was mapped to 32c. This will convert u8012 to 32c on importing from a LDraw file. However, if you then export the list as a Rebrickable.csv file, it will export as 32c. There isn't an option for LDraw export at the present time.
  15. These items are outside my area of expertise and some sets are shown as only being available to the Scandinavian area. I'm going to ask @biodreamer if he can shed any light on this.
  16. Those superseded notes are just an advisory that the part has been 'retired', and most likely will not be found in newer sets. You can still add the 'retired' part to your lists of loose parts. If you think the Note is an actual error, let us know here with a link((Use the linked chains to the left of the " above) to the part number. for example 4215a
  17. It may appear that some part photos appear instantly because my husband submits some for me under his account name. My laptop doesn't have access to our scanner, so he does them and I approve them 'instantly'. Also when there are new parts submitted that say they can provide a photo, we give those photos priority. Currently there are about 200 photos waiting for approval. We do have to verify that photos are not simply copied from other sites such as Bricklink. I've just approved your 2 photos because they didn't require much research or part corrections, but any future photos you submit will be taken in turn.
  18. Depending on the reason for the change, it is usually handled by mapping the element id to the correct number. If mapping isn't enough, there's a process called normalizing that is applied to the two parts. It allows the system to recognize that the old number being imported should be processed as the new number. If you receive an error on import, please let us know here in the Forum.

    Help identifying parts

    This is actually a fixed glass window without the fixed glass. Interesting discussion about it at BrickLink about a year ago that I remembered because I have a red one without the glass in my loose parts. The face with a scar(keyword) is 3626bpx93 I was just looking at one of the sets that has this head a few days ago. I came up totally blank with the black torso- tuxedo, jacket, bow tie, lapels, sweater, buttons, and vest got me nothing here and at BrickLink. I also checked any 'Mini Upper Part' with an image, but nothing matched. It may be an obvious question, but did you verify that there is a LEGO logo on the torso?
  20. I tried a custom list with about 400 parts. I even added a known color error part to the custom list and a part list to see what would happen. The only thing I can think of is that your Custom List was created with the idea of using similar colors or one of the other options. This type of build isn't available with Custom Lists. When I used a 'similar color option', it showed I had 98% of the parts and was only missing 8 parts. But there is a notice on the Find My Parts page that warns you it will only look at your inventory for exact matches. After using my parts list, that page tells me that I am missing 67 parts.
  21. I'll see if I can replicate this, but I won't be able to do it until tomorrow.
  22. Tags are currently part of an Admin Catalog Discussion. Thanks for bringing this to our attention.
  23. I did bring this to Nathan and his answer was to leave them the way they are now.
  24. The set is in the list waiting for review. Parts that are not yet in the database will delay approval, as we may have to wait to receive the info from other sources.
  25. The missing parts have been added with the exception of the sticker sheet.
