    @Mr_Cross I have a spare Medium Orange you can have for your collection if you want. ;-)
    I'm sure Sand Blue will appear in a set at some point. 

    I also try and avoid paying silly money as colours do appear eventually e.g. it took ages for Dark Brown to appear but it did. Same for the Red 'dalek' 4733 brick, they were between £8-20 on BL and not they are in a set and easily available!

    And a red one too
    Red? or Dark Red?... If there is a Red out there somewhere then it must be a prototype. Theres a few different ones on BL eg Dark Flesh but I guarantee these are mistakes from sellers getting the colour wrong ;-)

    Yes, proper classic normal red. My friend bought a bunch on BL and they're most definitely that colour

    95% of the time off colours are just that, wrongly listed. The other 5% is usually jackpot for me :)

    @DeMontes that's great news about that Dalek brick.  All of my city's fire hydrants use a gray Dalek brick as their core but we have plenty of fire hydrants that are red here on this side of the pond so I'm looking forward to upgrading them. That's great news to wake up to, especially since Bricks and Pieces seems to be back up and running plus it's double points.

    Are you sure there is a baby in 4000026  LEGO House Tree of Creativity? I don't think there is...
  • DeMontesDeMontes North YorkshireMember Posts: 656
    Oooooh cancel that - I realise you mean the 4000024 version. It's just white.

    Sorry, should have been more specific.  It’s the ‘Inside Tour’ LEGO House Tree of Creativity.  4000024

    I think I've found photos of the parts list for the #4000024-1 Tree of Creativity set and it's listed there as 6154171 so seems like you have it already, you'll be glad to hear.

     I couldn’t find that anywhere.  Nice work vizzitor.  Thank you!

    Not really a single parts in different colours, however: I now have a complete collection of Clikits figs.



    (I blame Huwbot)

    Apt for a Halloween post?
    ^ you certainly scared me!  If someone receives Clickits for Secret Santa we will know who to blame...

    @KungFuKenny Mission accomplished then! 😁

    No risk of anybody receiving this from me as a Secret Santa gift: I had the crazy idea to collect (at least) 1 of each non-minifig figure type Lego has produced. I'll open a marketplace thread soon for some of the figs I'm after.

    Speaking of Secret Santa: don't let the risk of receiving a Clikits doll keep you from participating in this year's Secret Santa! Forum thread with all the details here.
    Still 2 more days remaining to put your name in Santa's hat!

    New month and completed a new collection...all of the Friends and Elves birds.  Please don’t tell me I’m missing one as my spouse is about to ban me from Bricklink...
    What is it with spouses!?!  Mine has my whole family acting like I’m taking away their birthdays everytime a delivery truck comes with new LEGO.  It just isn’t right. 

    I like #2 too.  And #8.  Nice detail printing.

    @Mr_Cross
    Very nice collection!  I am working on 1x2 plates but there are a scattered few that are ridiculously expensive.  BTW I’ll check but I think I have a sand blue, a Maersk blue and an old brown you could have... not so sure about shipping across the Atlantic though... if you are still short next spring when we are in London I can check about mailing them from in-country...

    Hmm, are you sure you have them all? I have no idea where I got this from (old dark grey), but I found it in a moc I took apart yesterday.

    Sigh... I was going by BrickLink "known colors" for 3899...




    So now I need to do some detective work...unless you have an extra you would like pop in the mail? :-)
  • PaperballparkPaperballpark UK / KLMember Posts: 3,864
    That's a curious way of looking for colours... I just go by what's for sale worldwide!



    Sorry! And I'm afraid I don't have a spare grey one.

    ^ Yes, I have sometimes gone by "lots for sale", but so often sellers don't list colors correctly or don't know what they actually have... For example, there are only 2 sellers (both in Europe) of black cups, and one of them has over 400 of them!  Was that a custom piece, or unreleased?  If it was in a set I would expect it to be in the database and to be sold by more sellers... I have self-limited to parts that were officially released because my spouse would divorce me otherwise... :-)

    looks like I will be back on the hunt now...

    Oh yeah you definitely have to be careful! Like that trans-pink one. Only one seller? When there's 800 selling trans-dark pink? I think someone has got their colours mixed up there.

    On the other hand, looking at how many sellers there are, I'd say green, light grey and tan are probably genuine.

    I’m working on updating my hamster and bird collections (thanks to the new Friend’s play cubes), but in the meantime I gathered up the 5 colors of part 4332...

    Nice, I have these too although I had to try a few BL sellers for the Brown as I kept receiving Reddish Brown (story of my life for so many BL colours tho!!)

    @KungFuKenny I take it you are ordering them from Bricks & Pieces?  They are all available and cheaper than BL.

    Are you Bricklinking the animals, or buying the cubes and hoping?? I was hoping for the gold animals in the two cubes we have, but we got a blue hampster and a purple cat 😆

    I logged on to Bricks and Pieces for the Chinese New Year parts and on a whim went looking for the new Friends animals... all of them are available at fairly reasonable prices, and I didn’t really need the cubes, so...

    ^I bought them all as soon I saw them on B&P earlier this week. I'm a bit concerned about the upcoming series of these play cubes. My Friends animal collection is already getting a bit out of control. Will my need to collect lead me to being overwhelmed by cute brightly colored animals?
      Any guesses about what animals the next series will feature?

    I know... I suspect this type of collecting will allow brief moments of “completionist” satisfaction punctuated by repeated Bricklink orders trying to catch up to new releases...:-)
