New connectors released

The new connectors we had seen at Nuremberg Toy Fair, are out with The Vampire Castle (9468) from Monster Fighters theme!

They were listed yesterday, as new parts to the BrickLink database.

10197 - Technic, Axle and Pin Connector Hub with 2 Axles
For now available in Dark Bluish Gray only.

10288 - Technic, Axle and Pin Connector Triple
For now available in Dark Brown only.

I'm pretty confident that soon these will also debut into Technic sets, where they might become quite useful.

I cannot wait for all these new parts to decline in cost.. So much potential in these two parts and the new motors.

I wouldn't be too surprised if these new elements appeared in the 2H2012 Technic sets: it is on Technic that Technic elements usually debut(well, duh), and therefore it shouldn't take long for the Pin Connector Triple to appear in more "Technic-friendly" colours. :)

I'm thinking about ordering some of these parts through "Lego Direct" (Lego Customer Service), but I need the Lego Element ID (not Bricklink Part Number) for them. Does anybody have the PRINTED Building Instructions for the 9468 Vampire Castle set, so that one could get the Element Idea from the printed Parts List in the back of the manuals? The ONLINE instructions have not been posted on or anywhere else....

An acquaintance of mine bought this set, and looked up the Lego Element IDs for me:

Bricklink 10288 --> Lego Element ID 6005755.

Bricklink 10197 --> Lego Element ID 6005331.
