Looking for a part that isn't in bricklink yet in blue

Postby ohako » Tue Dec 06, 2016 10:52 pm

Hi there,

I put together something cool for Intercept Orbit using a couple of 4x4 wedge plates in dark bley. I ordered all the parts I'd need in the right colors, but when they show up my wedge plates are weird. It turns out, my original plates are weird!

Here's the 3D model of the wedge plate, according to bricklink: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemPic.asp?P=43719&tab=V

Here's a picture of a wedge plate like the one I'm using (someone used glue on this one, which is why I have it handy). Image

Aside from bricklink catalog wackiness, does anyone out there have a 4x4 wedge plate in blue with the little crossbor/flange thing that lets you make 1-dot connections to the plate's tips that they'd be willing to part with? Thank you.

Lego does actually make these, I have a lot of them in greys. It's one of those weird a/b minute difference parts they make, where you never notice its different until it's actually relevant.

In dark blue, yes. I'm looking for the piece in 'Benny Spaceman' blue. Thanks though.

The last time that part was made in "Benny Spaceman Blue" was ten years ago.

Sure. I'm pretty sure I've even seen/have some. But I still think the question was relevant.

Ah, okay, so I went with the piece in dark blue. It works well enough, I guess. I'll keep my eyes open if they ever go back into that color in a big way.
