Will the old bow tie sets work still with new non bow tie sets? 5 Years, 1 Month ago  
....subject pretty much says it all.

If I were to pick up a used set that used the bow ties (not really even sure what these are), would they work with the new sets that don't use them?

Thanks...

Yes, they would work, but you wouldn't be able to "insert a bow-tie" between the pieces where a non-bow-tie piece abutted a bow-tie piece.

Since you are just getting into it, why not simply get all the new sets, which don't have bow-tie indentations (and look much better IMHO)?

Because, lets say I buy some new sets, and then there is a guy I know locally who wants to sell a set for $50, but its an old set? Will they be compatible?

The pieces are the same size; the new pieces just lack the indents to use the bow-tie connectors. You can mix and match with no problem.

Somewhere in the forums are instructions for filling in the bowtie indentations, so bowtie sets can be converted to bowtieless.

It was quite a shock to me when they put out the non-bowtie sets but most folks seem to like them better. If you think they look better you may want to consider paying a bit more and ignore any older sets you see.

You can use the half bow ties to fill in the older sets bow tie openings and it will look OK sitting up against the new sets without needing to do too much work like filling them in and painting them, or you can just not bother like most people do...
