History of Part 37762 and 73117 The candle #37762 first appeared in the 2018 Summer Harry Potter wave for the minifigs to hold barehanded…  Box art of 75954 Hogwarts Great Hall, 75953 Hogwarts Whomping Willow, and 75950 Aragog’s Lair Close up image from Aragog’s Lair of Harry Potter holding a lit candle.  And the candelabra #73117 appeared in June 2021 in a Beauty and the Beast set to create Lumiere and a Harry Potter set as…well a candelabra.

Starting off with some of the featured pieces’ original uses, these builds fit right into a gothic setting. Image of @vigadeath’s candelabra MOC.  This piece cleverly gives the candle a melted look. Part 15070, Plate, Modified 1 by 1 with Tooth Vertical, White Image of @alexandrebricks74 ‘s hanging candle chandelier.  A close up image of how it is built. Image of @ibrickeditup ‘s organ MOC. The pin of the candles fit inside this relatively new piece. Part 77850 Plate, Round 1 by 3 with Open Studs, Black

The candle is great for pipes and greebling for Star Wars MOCs… Image of @thecreatorrmocs ‘ Bespin Duel diorama between Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.

…and for microbuilds! Candles make for a futuristic city overlooking a waterfall. Image of @jeff_works ‘ MOC of a futuristic city overlooking a waterfall.

From a “dinglehopper” holder to intricate pipes, these candelabra pieces are put to good use beyond holding candles! @windsorbricks ‘ MOC of Ariel from Disney’s The Little Mermaid in her cavern. The candelabra holds a knife, fork, and spoon in it. @mumubrix ‘s MOC of an abandoned lab. The candelabra is used as piping. @lego_moc_brickheadz ‘s Brickhead of a Dutch Barrel Organ and Brickheadz in traditional Dutch clothes.
