Fully round? So, no studs or any other type of connection? Does it have a tiny printed "Lego" on it anywhere? The only spheres I'm finding in the online database are either half spheres or one of a couple types of true spheres (both of which are smooth).

Does anyone know what set this guy is from?

How were you able to ID it so fast? Is there a QR scanner app for minifigs or something I don't know about?

The thing is most of us can identify a piece by sight-not the technical aspects like part number or sets it was in. Most lines in the Lego universe consist of a finite amount of sets. Zeya beat me to it-but once you know the general location of a piece the rest is a cakewalk with bricklink to help.

I also did a catalog search for "torso knife", had trouble with that and then had luck with "torso green vest". If you know how BL tends to name its parts, you can find stuff fairly quickly. At first I thought this was an Adventurers fig from maybe Orient Expedition, but didn't spot it in there. Then I did those searches.

Exactly. This is another reason I :roll: when people start dissing BL.

Post by kurokun » Wed Jun 19, 2013 4:46 pm

Hi 1st post ever...

Hi! I found this black/red spider-man. Can't find it anywhere. Anyone knows if it is terrifically done custom or an unreleased mini-figure? Thanks ^_^

Anyone have any idea what this is? A LEGO part number that I could use with peeron.com would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. There is no number printed on the piece, nor is there a LEGO logo.

9247 Community Workers, 6738 Skateboard Challenge, and 6740 Xtreme Tower have this minifig.

Hope that helps.

Looks like a minifigure from set 6738 Island Xtreme Stunts. He is the Henchman minifig, but had a different hat in the set.
