One new connector

Ryan sent me a picture from his latest acquisition... The same new parts released with the new 9397 Logging Truck.



These are available via LEGO Direct, for about 0,35€ + VAT.

Any idea about part reference number?

@Philo

Looking to the picture at full resolution, it seems to be 68686.

Philo said...

Mmhhh.... I think it's actually 98989. Just rotate it 180° ;D

Fernando Correia said...

LOL, likely!

Didn't remember about that possibility. Let's say the number itself didn't help...

Neither remembered that new parts are being released in the 9XXXX range. :P

Ryan said...

The part number on the part itself is 98989. Or 68686, bud judging on the shape of the 8's and 6's 98989 is more likely.

Maybe it is my dirty mind talking but doesn't this part look like a penis? :P

Ryan said...

BTW: on the other side of the part there is the number: 2-1 and the LEGO-logo. If you would turn the part around to reveal the part number without turning it upside down the number definitely is 98989

LDraw model available here...

This new part could be useful in making 3-dimensional frames, with Technic Liftarms attached in the X- , Y- , and Z-axis directions.

Hi!
I very much like your blog! I find it to be a very good (if not the best) source of information about LEGO Technic. After reading your blog for quite some time, I decided to start my own. I'll be writting about LEGO Technic and Truck Trial, focusing mainly on my own creations and local events. If you find anything usefull, feel free to use it in your posts! :) Cheers and keep on the good work!

Hey guys, couldn't find a "contact us" page (if one exists).
Anyway, check the new Monster fighters theme:

At 2:26 in the video you can see a new Technic connector. Kinda like the angled version of 57585. Hope it comes in more colors soon as dark brown isn't too good for Technic.

@Marin

Yes Majhqa told me yesterday.
Should make a new post about, later tonight. ;)

Looks like the 98989 piece is used at the ends of the steering racks of the Crawler 9398.

Am I the only one who finds this part mildly pornographic?

Fernando Correia said...

@Blakbird

No! You're at least the second one... :)
See above.
