This issue I thought I would highlight one new part that arrived in June.
Part Number: 23443
First Appeared: Volcano Explorers
Current Colours: Black
Very similar to part 11090, first appearing in 2013, it has a bar instead of a clip. These two parts complement each other very nicely, and make a very nice hinge.
I think the bar version may be more versatile as parts with clips tend to be smaller than parts with bars. Allowing for smaller more delicate joints and builds.
A few ideas, and yes one nicked from the brick bank.
