What Set Is This?

@legomaster1378 You did pretty good actually, I’ll go through each one:

That last batch is to the V-19 as guessed, however the first batch is also to the 19, as I don’t own the shuttle. Solid guess though.

Those blue parts are indeed to the AAT. The republic symbol, red clip, and brown thingie are also to the '08 gunship. Both great sets. The rest is just some random odds and ends.

Overall, pretty accurate. So @Altair is correct as well :stuck_out_tongue:

Oh, now it makes sense. I immediately guessed the attack shuttle (which I owned) upon seeing the dark red modified plates and the blue chair (which I distinctly remember 'cuz it was a really odd colour choice). In retrospect, I really should have been tipped off by the dark grey “X” piece and the TECHNIC gear (neither of which are in the shuttle).

That being said, I’ve never owned the V-19 (the main reason I guessed it was because I looked up that sand green inverted wedge in the Bricklink database). Does that sand-green wedge serve any purpose? 'Cuz it’s a really weird inclusion. Also, what do you think of the V-19 Torrent as a set?

that green piece chills on the back underside with a mirrored piece with it. Those to are the only green on the entire set though, aside from a bit of lime on the front sticker. A little out of place, but not that noticeable.

Having just rebuilt it, I quite like it. The folding wings are super smooth, thanks to those black and clear air pump things, which are only found I this set as far as I know. And the wingspan is massive in the open position, rivaling the gunship even. If you wanna display it in the open position, all you need is a decent sized plate (Or brick in this case), which the bottom wing can rest in, like so:

I really don’t have any major gripes, it’s pretty solid.

A post was merged into an existing topic: Star Wars Topic

They’ve actually appeared in several larger TECHNIC sets from the early 2000s (I got a bunch of 'em in a BIONICLE haul a while back).

It looks pretty good. Though I’m honestly not a huge fan of the ship itself. Something about it seems… off. I can’t really explain what…

Didn’t those have springs though? these ones are spring free. probably the same base parts I’m sure.

Yup, the V-19 is the only set to include that assembly without a spring. I’m guessing this odd discrepancy is because the V-19’s wing feature had no need for the action of a spring, unlike the suspension/shock absorber features of the TECHNIC models.

Could someone help me figure out what set this particular piece came from before Vakama Hordika decides he either

A.) Wants to sue for copyright

or

B.) Wants to give the moc I’m using this piece in the same fate as poor Raanu?

It’s most likely from the tower of toa playset from 2005, which is also coincidentally my very first bionicle set

Interesting to note how the red variant has the red molded all the up to the ribbed shaft where the fire comes out whereas the black one molded that part in orange :grimacing:

I wish i had that piece

It isn’t really that versatile IMO

Can someone tell me if this thing is even LEGO? I found it behind a freezer, and I thought it might be a part of the freezer, but it fits with LEGO.

It is, you can find it in the exo-toa and some more sets

That has stud ends, though. This has peg ends, like the Mahri Tube, but shorter.

Oh… Then I dont know

That’s definitely Lego: it’s been in use since 2014 in sets like the LEGO Movie Melting Room set (70801), and notably in Cole’s Boulder Blaster (70747).

I myself find the piece fantastic for greebling, and have used it for the railing for the cockpit of a mech of mine.

I suggest dismantling the freezer and checking the already-existing internal wires and tubes to see whether or not this looks similar to any of them just to be safe…can’t let it potentially malfunction from a missing piece and melt all your food
