  1. I THINK i've fixed this issue on my laptop, chrome had 'allow notifications' off for the forum. Turning it on seems to have worked. Win 10 and Chrome. I'll try at home later, but I think the forum needs notifications allowed.

    unknown brick

    That's a magnet brick. Usually with minifig magnet sets from LEGOLand.
  3. Done, that's why we have lots of 000x numbers. Forward thinking for the win.
  4. Just use the submit change link, and tell us how many of each part are missing in which colour. I don't know where you got 1707 for trans-neon orange though? TNO is LEGO 47/ OUR 57. We try to follow LEGO for as many as possible though, so just use our name from the part colors page. You don't need hyperlinks, as we can use the parts in the set, and click and add from there. So to make life easiest just write 6 x 6141 in trans-light blue 2 x 6141 in... etc. That's all we need, it's quick, and THANKS for helping out!! Cheers, Chris.
  5. 64566, 32125 or even that fabuland wheel thingy 4750. A 6x6 cross built from 2 wide bricks can have 6x1 bricks connected 6 studs out from the centre in a hexagon too.
  6. You can combine and remove loose parts from your parts list into a set that will then be marked as 'owned' IF a]You have all the parts b] In the exact colours and c] In the exact mould variants. It's kind of 'clunky' but I think it's in the pipeline for improvement in Rebrickable 3.0 [The Rebrickening].
  7. We're right on that one! Or at least we agree with LEGO on the mould colour. I will set it to dark purple for the sake of store links, but add a note for the part.
  8. Fixing now, this is a side effect of the scraper, so shout if you see any more!
  9. If you look inside LEGO are usually smooth, the clones I've found [by colour, there's no other way to tell] have got eight faint ridges inside, two circular horizontal lines split into four as two stacks. These were Megabloks, I'd have called them very light gray if I thought they were LEGO. Other clones COBI/BLOX etc I haven't seen to closely. I'm sure I have some mixed in somewhere though, little swines.
  10. It seems a print set-up for a 3039 was used to print on the invert [so it was flipped in the machine], so it's reversed. That's about all the new information I can find.
  11. I know the part you mean, but LEGO have no equivalent, sadly. One method is to use 4276a and 4275a and flip one of the hinges, although this requires 4 studs to do. A 11010 will fit between two back to back plates [but not all, and not very strongly, it's good on jumper bases though] or a 95344 will fit at the edges of most modern plates for back to back. For bricks, there actually were some studs both sides and anti-studs both sides bricks. You can also wedge tiles between the bottom tubes to join two bricks back to back, but this ruins the tiles and the tubes eventually. LEGO used the clip ring trick in the Hobbiton set too for the window frame. TLDR; Nope
  12. I've done some hunting, and it appears the left side prints were a misprinted batch, and can appear pretty much anywhere. Why that set was marked as having a left side print I don't know. I'll sort it to a right side print, and add notes for the printed brick, until something more definitive is found. I've never seen a left sided one, from exclusively UK sets [so Denmark packaged].
