Nope, not sure at all!

This part was added as an extra in 2010. Unfortunately, the Inventory Change
Requests from back then were not saved indefinitely in the forums like they are
today, so we have no information as to why this change was asked for or approved.

I honestly can't see a reason for it being in there.

Our guidelines for Extras in an inventory state:

Removing or Changing Extra Items - Extra parts can vary depending on when
and where a set was manufactured, meaning that some new sets may include them
and others may not. The quantity of these extra parts can also vary. Extra parts
are typically not removed or reduced in quantity unless it can be determined
that they were originally added or increased in error.

So, to make a decision concerning whether to remove this as an extra part, I
have to somehow determine if it was originally added in error. That is going
to be tough to do after nine years removed from the actual change being made.

Any ideas on how you would proceed with this, Paul?

Cheers,
Randy

Part 3705b first appeared as a regular part in sets in 1986 according to our
catalog. So it seems strange that it appeared as an extra part in another set
two years before that. Based on that it seems that a mistake was probably made
when adding this extra.

The only way to be sure would be to ask the person who added it in the first
place. But even they might not remember it after so many years.

Hi

No... that was also my first thought (my cancelled post) but have a look at the
instructions and all 5 are used as regular axle.

Yeah, I already went over the instructions yesterday. I know it isn't used
in the set in any way, but it may have popped into a random set after a few years
on the market. In any case, I believe it was most likely a LEGO packaging error
if it was found in a set. I am definitely leaning towards removing it from the
inventory.

Randy

I have decided to remove this extra from the inventory. I just can't think
of anything or find anything that makes sense except for it possibly being a
packaging error.

Request approved.
