AFOL glossary on Eurobricks

Came across the Eurobricks (EB) glossary here

As a newbie AFOL, I remember being constantly confused when I read acronyms like ‘SNOT’ or ‘BURP’.   Here are some of the more common ones which I think would be helpful.  🙂

Bley: Bluish Grey
Colour terminology refering to the new grey introduced by Lego. Like “old” grey it exists in light and dark

BURP: Big Ugly Rock Piece
Those large strange shapped pieces including piece 6082 and piece 6083

GREEBLE (GREEBLIE, GREEB)
groupings of mechanical-looking detail elements on MOCs

MOC: My Own Creation

MSRP: Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price

PAB: Pick A Brick
A pick a bick consists of a wall of boxes full of various bricks in which you can choose whatever piece you want.

S@H (or SAH): Shop At Home
Lego’s online store.

SNOT: Studs Not On Top
A building technique where studs are, surprisingly, not always on top. This can be achieved with pieces designed for the purpose and have studs and/or anti-studs) on two or more faces, or by using pieces in a creative way. For example, most of the hinge pieces are good for SNOTting.

TLC: The Lego Company

TLG: The Lego Group

UCS: Ultimate Collector’s Series

A small scene recreated on a small plate (usually 8X8)
