41188 Breakout from the Goblin King's Fortress, and Earth Blue [TLG/Dark Blue [BL] (6190141) in 41187 Rosalyn's Healing Hideout.
Shell, 4X6X2/3 (Design ID 32739) is the name of this plate/slope hybrid. It's big, but I think this could be quite useful. It matches the triple wedge used for vehicle rooves (Element ID 52031), which is how it is used in the LEGO CITY theme, to which it is exclusive for now. It comes in Bright Yellow (Element ID 6194333) in 60154 Bus Station, White (6184866) in 60164 Sea Rescue Plane and 60165 4 x 4 Response Unit, and also Bright Orange (6194337) in 60160 Jungle Mobile Lab and 60161 Jungle Exploration Site. I find it interesting in light of the number of two-plate-high parts in recent years, as well as the trend for 'stepped' parts like the baby bow and the slipper.
I almost skipped past this one on Brickset, thinking it was DUPLO. But no, it is System... a round 4x4 tile with two studs in the centre. The TLG name is Plate 4X4, Circle, W/ 2 Knobs (Design ID 33490). As it happens, we can already tile a round 4x4 area by using four pairs of the 2x2 macaroni tiles (27925) introduced in January with the quarter-circle tiles (25269) from last year. Nevertheless this is a great part - well, it will be when it comes unprinted! This spotty one (Element ID 6187472) comes in The LEGO Batman Movie 70917 The Ultimate Batmobile (available from Amazon USA and UK) where it is used as a minifigure stand.
75180 Rathtar Escape and it comes in Black in DC Super Hero Girls 41238 Lena Luthor Kryptomite Factory.
To end; this is a DUPLO piece, possibly the first I've ever mentioned on New Elementary! And I'm only doing so to make the joke that it looks like the Nexogon of DUPLO. If you fancy giving it a whirl, 3 Arm Element, W/ Tube, W/O Clutch Power (Element ID 6184955 | Design ID 29139) is found in the rather awesome 10840 Big Fair.
Next time I will highlight a few of the exciting recolours of existing parts that are new this summer.
