New Elements!

Postby AC » Wed Mar 06, 2019 5:58 am

Do you search out new elements that are coming out? It seems that Lego has been very adventurous in that they are exploring new elements far more than they were several years ago. The last 3-4 years have been very good for some great pieces that are very useful.

What elements have you seen of late that you are really happy about?

Where do you go online to see these new elements?


I like this Instagram. Not only do they feature new elements but they show creative ways to use them and even MOCs that have incorporated the new elements.

Still love the Ornate element with bar - Part: 28870


I’ve seen it used for so many brilliant things for building accents to stair railings to armour.
So simple, yet really inspiring for all its many uses!

I just learned that I didn't follow New Elementary on instagram. I always just went to their website. Now I follow them on insta too!

I usually find new parts by looking closely at the images of soon to be released sets.

My current favourite new elements are the splat gears and the XL sprocket. I haven't put them to use yet but they will be in a future GBC for sure!
