LEGO has just updated its online pick-a-brick section just in time for BBCC 64, and it's something you won't want to miss. Included in the update are HF pieces from late 2012 and early 2013, but that's not what's interesting. The amazing part of this update is the inclusion of NEVER BEFORE SEEN UNPRINTED PARTS. That's right. Unprinted. This includes 44000 Furno XL's visor, 6200 Evo's chestplate, 6221 Nex's chestplate, and 6282 Stringer's chestplate. Ready those wallets, because this is a builder's miracle.http://www.bzpower.com/story.php?ID=5945]View the full article[/url]

What is "Bionicle"? :???:

 

But seriously, no, there are no Bionicle parts. Why would parts from a dead theme be on PAB?

 

I mean, there are a few of the ball-joint parts on there, the ones without the axle-hole all the way through? But no reference to having debuted in Bionicle.

Plus, most BIONICLE parts that aren't currently being used in other themes aren't even still in production, so there's no reason TLG would even have enough of those in stock to offer them on Pick-A-Brick. Whatever they have left is best reserved for offering as replacement parts on LEGO Customer Service.

I noticed this yesterday and ordered some; Got a total of 22 of the visors and 8 of each chestplate (Except Evo's, since I didn't really see a need for it, but I'm sure most wouldn't agree :P). I doubt they'll be available for much longer, so order while you can!

I don't think they ever did. In like 2009 I checked and got so frustrated because they didn't have any clawed feet and mine were breaking.

Do they finally have sailing ship parts?!?! Oh, please let it be so!

 

Not that it's terribly likely... Given that POTC sets are retired and there are no current such themes. *sigh*

 

 

EDIT: Guess not... Closest thing I found is Element ID 4541875, the Tub. Woo. Hoo.

 

Why?!

There is at least one set this year that uses those hulls, just so you know. The Friends Dolphin Cruiser has them in white. Of course, even if they are still being used, Pick-a-Brick rarely stocks parts which are both that big and that specialized.

Oh. Cool. Nevertheless I guess I won't be seeing them there anytime soon. Or never. *sigh* Back to haunting Ebay...

Does anybody have a link to Pick-a-Brick? I've never used it before, so I don't even know where it is on the site.

Well, a word of caution: the earliest production runs of Toxic Reapa used the old mold. So if you buy a Toxic Reapa set there's no guarantee it'll have the redesigned version. However, the chances of getting the redesigned version now are significantly better than when the set was still new. Overall Toxic Reapa's not a bad parts pack even without the remolded feet, and if you don't get them the worst it will mean is you'll have a few to replace ones of yours that have broken previously, and you'll just have to be careful not to break the new ones.

Right here.

I seem to be inexperienced with this. I can't find but one type of HF shell, which is "not available".  :confused:

You mean that's the only Hero Factory part you can find in there? Use the Brick Search, to the left of the list of available bricks. You'll noticed a bunch of categories starting with "figure." Some of those are minifig parts, but the rest are Hero Factory.

 

Or maybe it was specifically a HF shell you were looking for? :P

The categories are a bit mixed up in this latest update. Most of the Hero Factory shells are in the category "Figure Accessories" rather than "Figure Accessories, Shells w/ Ballsnap" and all of the Hero Factory beams are in "Figure Parts" rather than "Figure Parts, Ball w/ Guides". Other good joint pieces are placed a bit more logically in "Beams w/ Ball and Ball Cup".
