    Wow @elspankdog that blue bicycle probably cost more than actually buying an actual carbon Blue bicycle with Dura-Ace groupset

    It wasn't as bad as the trans-red...one of those went for $400 recently on BL.  Craziness

    ^^^ Hmm. I never noticed the difference in the headlight and rear fender studs before. Maybe now you can collect all the colors of each mold ;)

    The final Rock 1x1 Jewel 24 Facet arrived in a recent BL order, so I think I have them all now:

    Missing the Trans-Black (Tr-Brown) one... There was a seller on BrickLink that had a few a while back, think they were asking around US$100 each....which is why I don't have one in my collection, so I guess we tie...

    BrickLink doesn’t show trans black as a known color. It shows 13 colors.

    Yup, not a chance I'm getting that, even if it does exist! Similar to the bicycles, I'm only collecting normally-available parts, not test parts.

    There was one seller when I first added all the colours available to one of my want lists (apparently there was at one time several sellers with it). From what I could dig up, not in any sets, small batches turned up on a couple of PAB walls in Germany, possibly also in Denmark, it's rare, but not test parts rare...

    Still $100 rare which, for a tiny gem, is loony! ;-)

    Pretty much, that's why it's still on my want list. I'm hoping TLG will at some point release a set or two with them in that colour, but for now, I'll be happy with having them in every other standard translucent colour. :)

    ^ 2x1 tile chamfered w/hallmark?
    I really like this element. Recolours in Dark Red, Tan and Blue would definitely get my vote.

    Would be nice in dark tan or sand blue for architextures

    Can agree with all of those & add; Copper, dark blue, dark bluish grey, dark green, pearl dark grey, red, reddish brown, sand green & white (particularly white as it's one part I need for my Solo Story Special Edition MF microfighter). I'd mention translucent colours, but I'd want them available in all of them...

    Is the darker blue one med or dark azure? And where does it come from? Also I don't realize there were two versions of silver.

    I only have five left to complete now.

    The display is modular so that I can easily change the positions if needed.
    Nice display, I might have to copy that idea.

    So you need the Azures, the Browns, Vibrant Coral, the Titanium/Silver Metallic and what else? ;-)

    I meant 5 left to complete that are currently completeable! (BL names)

    Brown
    Flesh
    Old Light Grey
    Magenta
    Medium Azure

    Then there's the current colours which aren't currently completeable:

    Bright Light Yellow
    Coral
    Dark Turquoise
    Lavender
    Yellowish Green
    Flat Silver
    Pearl Dark Gray

    As well as the Glow in the dark colour and all the Transparent colours, but I doubt they'll ever happen.

    Oh I see, yes that makes good sense. Either way, your current collection is still a thing of beauty (to me) :-)

    Unfortunately I'm now at the point where I'd have to buy single elements from different sellers.

    ^ Maybe it's just the angle, but is the curve of the tail less curvy than the other four?

    I have just realized after reading this entire thread that some of you need an intervention.

    ...and this is coming from someone that needs some serious help ;)

    All.jokes aside, your collections are fantastic :)

    @Paperballpark Those mono-figs are awesome! Almost there. :-)

    I've recently been semi-collecting plant parts and other rock / jewel parts, but I don't think I'm ever going to get close to completing any of those "sets".

    I'll post a pic or two at some point though, partly to see for myself how well / badly I'm doing.

    I finally managed to head over to the Stratford Lego Store and picked up #70841 Benny's Space Squad, so I think a quick get-together of a selection of Classic Space figs might also be in order.

    I think I've got all the colours, before they went over-complicated in 1987:

    White (Classic & versions from #5002812 & #70841)
    Red (Classic)
    Yellow (Classic & version from #70841)
    Blue (Classic & Benny)
    Black (Classic)
    Green (From #21109)
    Pink (From #70841)

    I've just ordered all the parts needed to complete my 5 remaining minifigs.

    I might have ordered quite a few more parts as well. @DeMontes do you find you get an urge to collect all minifig parts, even those which are in retired colours and you know that you'll never be able to complete them?

    My end goal for monochrome minifigures looks something like this:

    Along with extra minifigures in selected colours, will be interesting to see how close I end up getting.

    On that note, added eight pearl gold monochromes to my collection today thanks to a B&P order (still needed some torsos & a few extra heads), love that the new City Fire sets included a pearl gold monochrome as a statue.
