New parts in new sets

Posted by ,

LEGO has published the inventories for the 2019 releases at its customer services site which means we have been able to import them into our database.

Often the company initially publishes those for the January sets without the new parts included but that's not the case this year. Over one thousand new parts have been exposed which you can see here and here.

The vast majority are recolours, as you'd expect, but there are some new System parts, or at least parts with new Design IDs. You can view them using an undocumented feature (tag-none) here and here. That trick will work until we start to tag them in the next few days. There are also a few Technic parts with new design IDs.

A brand new colour has been introduced in 70828 Pop-Up Party Bus which, according to New Elementary, has the LEGO ID of 353 and is named Vibrant Coral. So far 13 parts have been cast in this very attractive colour, and the set contains 116 of them.

Vibrant coral looks amazing! (Also ties in with the 2019 Colour of the Year, coincidentally). Can't wait to see it in more sets!

edit: Oops, 2019, thanks @David1985

Living Coral is the 2019 color of the year. ;)

Should just bring back sand red.

I mean, not to be pedantic just for the sake of it, buuuuuuut that's totally what I'm gonna do right now.
Quite a lot of these seem to be from the TLM2 sets, which were all officially released on the 26th of December 2018, so a lot of these are really just EXTREMELY late 2018 pieces by TLG's own release schedule ;)

This will be a great list when Bricks and Pieces reopens next month.

I'm interested in the geometries of those heart-shaped plates (the 3x3 one and the 6x6 one), those might be useful

I’m gonna use Watevra’s crown for my custom Biggie Smalls minifig.

@Fatoran - The copyright date on the box confirms that they are 2019 sets.

I have a set from this year that has the misprinted copyright of 2024. What year is that technically in?

Not really. This copyright thing can be confusing and I understand those who are by it.

I see there's a new wing plate, actually a pair: left and right. 4x6, deg. 27. They're in 75975 Watchpoint: Gibraltar. I built that set two days ago, and didn't notice the new parts! I'm so embarrassed!

@560heliport I also only noticed those in the inventories, rather than from pictures. If I'm right then it follows the same angle as the relatively new 2x2 wedge, designs 24299 & 24307, which themselves are half of the older design 51739. I wonder what led to Lego creating this new wedge, and whether we'll see more of them later this year? Using just one of each in a set seems unlikely.

I assume the heart is a tile. If so, does anyone know how it would fit on a plate? I mean, would it have to be a jumper plate, with a stud in the middle? Or could it fit on a regular 4x4 plate, for example?

"The vast majority are recolours, as you'd expect, but there are some new System parts, or at least parts with new Design IDs. You can view them using an undocumented feature ... until we start to tag them in the next few days."

Are there any plans to implement a permanent feature that would allow users to view the parts database with only the first example of each Design ID?

A filter to eliminate recolous that would allow me to see only the new designs in a particular year or update would be wonderful!

I know it wouldn't be foolproof since Lego sometimes gives new IDs to existing molds, and every printed part would still be visible (without an additional "not printed" tag) but I found your temporary workaround extremely useful!

Hope to see that new 'Bird, No.10', in some other sets. I can't believe it was made as an essential part of that Aladdin set, so guessing it will appear somewhere larger soon.

^ You can sort of do that by clicking on the 'Designs' button at the top of the listing. However that probably won't show what want which is probably to only show brand new designs for a particular year, for example.

I need to do some more tweaking before that's possible.

Speaking of new designs, I noticed building Sweet Mayhem's Systar Starship 70830 that design ID 41740, "Plate 1X4, w/ 2 knobs, no. 2", has replaced the older 92593, "Plate 1x4 w. 2 knobs". The top surface looks unchanged, but the underside is new- rather than a standard three inner tubes, like a standard 1x4 plate, it's got stud delimiters like the 1x4 click hinge pieces. I wonder whether it's to allow offset connections, since it's also reminiscent of the redesigned 1x2 jumper's underside.

@Huw:

This element should have been retired when they started producing the new C-clip version, but it popped up on this list in red for the Dragon Dance set. The horizontal version and the 1x1 tile both show the updated clip style, but is this version still showing up on the LEGO servers?

@Fatoran:
Sets that are scheduled for release on January 1st are often delivered to stores in mid-December. In the past, they basically couldn't stop hungry store managers from releasing them to stock during the busiest shopping season of the year, so _many_ January sets could be purchased the year before their intended release. After TLM kind of blew up their sales charts, they basically had to start intentionally prereleasing a few themes just to keep stock on shelves through Christmas. But those sets are still copyrighted for the following year, and they never appear in S@H catalogs until the January edition ships.

@gabri_ves & OhioBricker:
I don't own any of these parts, but the tile at the top of the article is a 1x1 tile, which can be seen in a few characters' hands (notably, the CMF Tin Man has a decorated version). It should attach to a stud, but I have no idea if the lobes will fit within a 1x1 footprint or if they'll hang over the edges. The 3x3 plate should be like a 2x2 round plate that's cut in half and placed on adjacent sides of a 2x2 plate (for the heart character, they used a 2x2 tile and 4x 1x1 quarter-circle tiles on top of this). The 6x6 version should be the same thing but with 4x4 round and square plates. Since the round plate geometry includes notches so it doesn't intersect studs, both these heart plates should have matching notches.

The last two links in the article don't work. They lead to a search for "Coral" instead of "Vibrant Coral", which turns up zero results.

^ Thanks. I renamed the colour yesterday afternoon, which took effect overnight, and in doing so broke the links.
