Please consider renaming part

[P=bb217]

and changing its note. I just pulled a spring from a forklift, and it has 49
turns, which does not fit with neither the title nor the remark. Apparently the
number of turns is very variable.

Hello

I recently added part

 
Part No: crssprt01pb67  Name: Brick 1 x 8 without Bottom Tubes with Cross Side Supports with Red 'KOBMAND' and 2 Arrows Pattern (KØBMAND)
* 
crssprt01pb67 Brick 1 x 8 without Bottom Tubes with Cross Side Supports with Red 'KOBMAND' and 2 Arrows Pattern (KØBMAND)
Parts: Brick, Decorated

to the catalog because it was missing. Now I see that part

[P=3008pb077]

exists in the catalog. I am convinced that this part is actually the "cross supports"
version identical to the one I added (the 3008pb077 image also suggests it, I
suspect that bottom tubes would be visible due to the warping of the brick) and
that the one with bottom tubes doesn't exist. None of the other "Købmand"
printed parts exist with bottom tubes, and none of the parts listed for sale
under 3008pb077 actually have bottom tubes (I have asked the sellers).

I therefore suggest that part 3008pb077 is marked for deletion.

Part 3002pb28 has the wrong stickers applied, so this part should not exist.
Please mark it for deletion.

Discussion and request to delete it from the current set inventory is here:

Hello

Could someone please look into the twn052 minifigure included in
 
Set No: 3222  Name: Helicopter and Limousine
* 
3222-1 (Inv) Helicopter and Limousine
251 Parts, 4 Minifigs, 2010
Sets: Town: City: Airport
?

Minifigure link: https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?id=92187

The inventory says that the head is
 
Part No: 3626bpb0122  Name: Minifigure, Head Glasses Rectangular, Brown Thin Eyebrows, Smile Pattern - Blocked Open Stud
* 
3626bpb0122 Minifigure, Head Glasses Rectangular, Brown Thin Eyebrows, Smile Pattern - Blocked Open Stud
Parts: Minifigure, Head

with brown eyebrows but it seems to me that the minifigure image shows that it
has red eyebrows, which is part

 
Part No: 3626bpb0122b  Name: Minifigure, Head Glasses Rectangular, Red Thin Eyebrows, Smile Pattern - Blocked Open Stud
* 
3626bpb0122b Minifigure, Head Glasses Rectangular, Red Thin Eyebrows, Smile Pattern - Blocked Open Stud
Parts: Minifigure, Head

So which is correct: The image or the inventory?

Hello everyone

I'm very confused about the "Door 1x3x4" parts. According to BL, they exist
in two variants: the old 445/446 "closed" style and newer 58380/58381 "open"
style. Instead of a general discussion below, I'll stick to discussing the
white version because that's the one that's the source of my current
confusion.

BrickLink states that the old versions were used in 1971-1976 sets and that the
new versions were used in sets from 2006 until today.

I just bough a used set
 
Set No: 7890  Name: Ambulance
* 
7890-1 (Inv) Ambulance
114 Parts, 1 Minifig, 2006
Sets: Town: City: Hospital
and it had the old style doors. The set
was included in a very small private collection of sets - everything else was
Bionicle and Technic sets, and all sets were post-2000. There is no chance that
these doors were magically swapped with 70's versions in that collection,
and the doors were shiny as new, something 70's bricks most likely wouldn't
be.

So first of all, I claim that the old style doors were used in later sets, specifically
this set from 2011. Peeron agrees with me, and I have viewed all reviews on YouTube
that I could find - over half of them show the set with old style doors:

https://youtu.be/c3gYu6z42EI?t=1m23s
https://youtu.be/M3cnptvQeL8?t=18s
https://youtu.be/-D4yj8O5I-E?t=34s
https://youtu.be/A35psVpsY9w?t=9s
https://youtu.be/FDPWGm0dDS0?t=2m39s
https://youtu.be/LSqDzn4Ezes?t=1m53s
https://youtu.be/EQnbwYMnBgY?t=1m2s

Also, the second and third image in the gallery on this page show the old style
doors:

http://www.ibrickcity.com/lego-7890-ambulance/

Also, in the BL inventory logs, I can see that the old style doors were in the
inventory when it was created. The newer style doors were added as alternates
in 2008, and in 2015, the old style doors were deleted from the inventory. I
can't read the reason for these changes anywhere.

So where do I go from here? Will you accept an inventory request adding the old
doors as alternates again?

Also, I have found a third variant of these doors in my collection. I don't
know which set they come from because those doors were bought in a box of mixed
60's-70's bricks. The picture below shows the two different styles. All
doors are the "closed" version. The left door has been taken from my set 384
(year 1976), the right door from my 7890 set (year 2011). From what I can see,
they're completely identical. The middle door is different. There is no hole
by the handle, and the handle is longer and shaped differently.

Any thoughts on this? Is the middle door missing from the inventory or not considered
an official variant? If not, a note and a picture could be added on the old style
doors mentioning the difference in the mold.

The name of this part

[Part=970c00pb078]

says that it contains (red and blue) triangles. There are no triangles on this
pattern, only rhombuses (a quadrilateral). I don't know if "rhombus" is a
word that BrickLink allows to be used in names, but something better than "triangle"
should be picked. It's very confusing.

shows the version
of the part with side slots - which seems to be part

Please check this inventory:

http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemInv.asp?S=6074-1

The reference for the alternate item (4085b) is non-existent. From what I can
see, it was the change made on Dec 23, 2015 that removed the match ID. But even
if the match ID was re-added, there's one problem: The alternate item (4085b)
is the same as the item already in the regular inventory.

Could someone look into this?
