Hey LEGO experts, I'm just sorting some old sets out, specifically 600 and 606 - should the minifigs have bright yellow hands, a different shade to the heads? thanks!

    Yes, The earliest minfigs had bright yellow hands, almost a translucent yellow.

    I'm sitting here looking at one of the construction vests (made of the same material) that some of the early minifig hands had, and it is indeed more of a "Lemon Chiffon" yellow.... a different plastic, less shiny than ABS.

    ^ I have a few old spacemen that have airtanks the same brighter/less opaque yellow color also.

    thanks peeps - I was pretty sure the sets were accurate, there's a couple of discrepancies with bricklink (another question - when did slopes with tubes come in? The red ones for 606 are no tubes, but the black ones for 600 have tubes - but they're the same lego print one the studs, with the the ring around the edge of the stud, so I *think* they're the right ones for the set.

    When did the hands change? They're rather awful in this plastic, like chinese clone type hands. I bet I've thrown some away in the past!

    I'm sending them to canada for @dimefield, so I want them to be as accurate as possible, though he say's he's chilled about it all, if I have the correct hands etc... I want to send them to him.
