Does Lego parts come with extras?

Asked by mazingerz88 (29002points) January 4th, 2013

I just started assembling my first ever Lego kit of a StarWars X-Wing fighter and realized I finished a section with a few tiny parts remaining. I’m quite sure I did not miss anything in the instructions so I’m wondering why there are still a few small parts in the plastic bag. I would hate to dismantle just to make sure. Thanks for your help. : )

Sometimes they do, for the teensy, tiny, nostril shaped pieces.

You should get Warwick Davis free for a day, he’s such a nice man giving up his time like that, must be a bit cramped in the box though.

@Seek_Kolinahr Thanks, I feel better, since those were the parts I have left. I hope. : )

Most of the self assembly things you get have extra parts in them. I’m just guessing they want to play it safe and give you too much rather than not enough. I keep the extra parts in a tool box or file drawer. They come in handy for other projects.

@Adirondackwannabe Just finished it and it looks ok without the remaining parts. So Lego actually does that. Thanks-!

Its been years since I’ve played with Legos but back in the day they had some extras in case you lost some.

My oldest has always had a few extra pieces in his Lego kits. He puts them in a bin in his room with all of his other Legos for building other things.
