Old brick separators in special colors?

mpfirnhabermpfirnhaber Member Posts: 65
These were only officially produced in green and dark gray. These two are non-production colors.

I know black also exists, I saw one for sale several months back, but I don't have one yet. Has anyone seen any other colors?

    It's more of a collecting non-production parts thing.

    Well I suppose I collect them by default.  I think its ridiculous you get one in every set.  It might be more fun if they had more variety.

    They have studs; you can build with them.

    Bright Red was an official colour - it was for the Play & Build Remote. That was a Wii controller that had studs and anti-studs and a few tiles to customise it. It was made by PowerA but endorsed by TLG and bore the LEGO logo.

    However, whilst there are publicity photographs around with it having a red brick separator, most, if not all, instead came with a black "tile separator" - i.e. the screwdriver / spanner minifig tool.

    Interesting! You're right, there's a red separator tool in a photo on this page: http://www.wiinoob.com/customize-this-awesome-lego-wii-remote/

    The shape seems different than a standard brick separator though - which makes sense since this kit only has tiles. Maybe the images show a prototype "tile separator"... I wonder of any of these Wiimotes actually came with one?

    A future of non-ragged nails and never having to worry about nearly swallowing pieces after biting them apart awaits you! When I was younger I couldn't believe it when I first got one of the old-style separators. More recently, I finally got my hands on the new kind with the tile separator tool at the end. I could have wept!

    I for sure plan on getting some of these, i use my nails but they are of the very strong kind that even can damage the pieces but i'm patient and rather try 20 times than to just break it open, my wife however use her teeth and keeps denying that the fresh shining damages are hers, so to avoid some relational problems i'll buy them for myself but place it next to her ;)

    I happen to have one of these.  Not sure if I got it from a set but I did not get it from Bricklink.

    I've been fond of collecting these, also; and am I the only one that finds ways to use them in builds? They make great bridges and create angle changes that cannot be accomplished normally.

    Can you share a photo? Preferably next to a regular dark gray?
  • mpfirnhabermpfirnhaber Member Posts: 65
    I found a picture of a blue one. That's two more that I need to find :)

    My friend has one, or maybe it was just normal dark grey

    I didn't know that these other colours were relatively rare - I have a sealed service pack 5008 (dating back to 1987-1989) containing a red brick separator in my collection for more than 20 years now. I have put it up for sale at Bricklink.
    @SumoLego weren't you looking for a brick separator in a polybag?

    I collect brick separators... by buying lots of $50+ sets... ;)

    ^Not just $50+ sets.  I remember #79005 Wizard Battle had a brick separator and that was only about £12.  Must be one of the smallest set to contain one

    I believe all sets RRP $49.99 and up have separators- and some cheaper sets.

    I'm sure I've gotten $100 sets in the past few years without a separator and others hardly bigger than a battle pack with one. Maybe it's not only determined based on size and price but also complexity and techniques like whether you need to, for example, connect two 1x2 plates.
