Another underrated LEGO® pebble

February 1, 2023



It has a different name for many people but we also call it a headlight brick. The Brick, Modified 1 x 1 with Headlight or LEGO® part number 4070. It is now available in 32 different colors and has been on the market since 1980. Back then, it was used to make headlights in cars, hence its "unofficial" name Headlight Brick. In the video, well-known LEGO® YouTuber and former LEGO® designer Tiago Catarino shows why this brick is very handy and what you can do with it.

So you see, there are pebbles that are not very special at first glance. Until you take a closer look at what you can do with them. Then suddenly the possibilities are almost endless. A few weeks ago, you could also read about the Jumper Plate and why this is also a very underestimated stone. If you want to read that article again, you can do so here: The "jumper" plate.

Tiago Catarino regularly makes new videos on his YouTube channel with LEGO® facts, reviews, tutorials and also shows different building techniques. Tiago is therefore an ex LEGO® designer and therefore obviously knows a lot about different techniques and bricks. We therefore thank him for the information he provides on his channel so that we can share it with you.
