LEGO master parts inventory: 840 new pieces for Summer alone!
Brickset's excellent interface to the LEGO parts database updated yesterday, showing 840 new parts for summer wave sets alone, for a total of 2,151 this year so far. That covers brand new, never-before-released molds, colors, and prints, within System, Technic, large action figure, and Duplo categories. Can you imagine being responsible for managing all that? What an incredible wealth of building tools LEGO is bringing out for us on a continual basis.
