In unpopular opinions, I haven't had time to sort by part yet. *whispers* It's still by color.
Kinda surprised sometimes by how many people are against sorting by color but I also completely understand how it's harder to find what you are looking for.
When I get too many of a part to fit in a reasonable sized bin, I split colors into 3 categories; monochrome (white, gray, black), primary and bright colors, muted colors (think more “natural”, like tan, brown, dark green, sand green, etc.)
What a fantastic element!
Why doesn't Donald have trousers?
Goofy is a dog, but Pluto is a dog too?
Why does a Mouse have a dog for a pet?
If you open the car door, is there a brain inside?
Which leads to 2 points:
1. One of my “unpopular opinions” is that Fabuland is awesome and not creepy at all and...
2. Why is a poodle vacuuming if poodles don’t shed?
The glitter of pet foods.
It's just the worst. And then we have the bird seed cakes in the holder outside and the squirrels like to hang from them upside down, mocking us.
Maybe they like the kinky stuff in Fabuland.
I really do not like minifigs from that era. The early Star Wars, Pirates and other figs of that era leave me cold.
I completely accept that it's a very personal viewpoint that others definitely will not hold but, for me, it has to be either the classic smiley face, or it has to be an up-to-date, fully-featured face. To me, the classic smiley is perfect in its simplicity, while those early progressions from basic smiley to now just look unformed and unfinished. Thankfully, the printing is now, generally, of such good quality that the faces look like a proper evolution of those first, simple ones.
I completely accept that Lego *had* to go through that phase to get where they are now, but I am personally glad that I was in my Dark Ages at the time and missed them entirely.
I'm not sure I'm explaining myself very well! ;-)
Edited to add:
I think here's a couple of good examples:
Sorry, they just don't look right to me! Apologies!
