    Those aren’t parts. They’re collections of parts glued together into keychains.

    Yeah... I figured they were probably intended for Duplo... since they do not fit on a baseplate... but do fit on a 2x2 Duplo brick, a 4x4 round turntable, or a circle of 4 macaroni bricks.  My guess is that they were never put into production because young children might be tempted to chew on them... since the trees with the sharp edges were made of a soft bendable plastic.

    I collect colours & I trying to get every element in that colour.

    The colours I collect are Sand Green, Tan, Dark Red & Dark Blue


    And Uni-Kitty's


    What is that unikitty in the orange packing?
    At this present moment in time with all the "new" Unikitty's that have been released my collection of her has grown. My holy grail is the 2018 SDCC Apocalypseburg Unikitty.

    The difference between old grey and light bluish grey can be very difficult to see, depending on the part. It's easiest to see if you have the same part in both colours.

    @Paperballpark Yes, I'm sure that true. It's certainly good enough for me as-is.

    I have just realised that I'm going to have to find some LBG / MSG hands, as the ones on it currently are DBG / DSG. I might buy a spare #71010 Gargoyle for that.

    The old grey air tanks weren't really the same colour as old grey bricks, and they aren't the same as new grey bricks, of course. But they blend in just as well, in my view.

    Yes, surprisingly the old light grey on the airtanks looks almost same as the new LBG colour.

    I'm always filled with equal amounts of joy and dread when new messages appear on this thread.  On one hand it's great to see what people are collecting, but on the other hand I fear something's going to trigger me to start a new collection.  Safe this time though, baby dinos are cute but not for me.  (Phew!)

    My Baby Raptors....

    Waiting on the last two to become more widely available on B/L...

    I didn't realise there were soo many different ones! Looking good.

    ^Yup, but I think Batsuits and monofigs is enough for now!  Although I did just check bricklink to see how many of the available variants of minifig mugs I own.....hmmm

    @demontes ;I'm undecided whether to add the blank one. I think it might look out of place. If Lego release another blank of a different colour, all bets are off.

    Who am I kidding.... Off to B&P now...


    @snowhitie There are four new baby raptors in the new Dino-Mech set including a reprinted sand-green

    There's an unprinted Dark Blue one on BL that would sit next to the unprinted Sand Green (evil grin)

    Telephone Handsets (6190) - newly added in Bright Yellow thanks to The Upside Down...


    Nice, now you need to display them as complete phones or being held by monochrome minifigures. With matching bicycles standing next to matching trashcans.

    So does anyone have a series of identical vignettes, differing only in their colours?

    Everytime I see a new @DeMontes post in this thread I have to steel myself, because if I don't I know I'm just going to be adding another thing to my list of items that I want to collect in even color.  Maybe I should just bite the bullet and try to get one of every piece in every color it was ever produced in, then I would never have to worry again ;_;

    @Fizyx collect all the 1x1 Beams above, you’ll probably complete all 9 available colours for a few dollars 😉

    There's been a few items that I could probably finish without too much, but it's like the finger in the dike situation... once the finger pulls out, the whole wall is going to come down.

    (The use of 'is' there is intentional.   It's going to happen one day, I know it.  Just trying to stave it off as long as possible now...)

    As much as I love classic space, it feels  little misleading to say 1978-1987 and then have a figure from 2019 in there!

  • MrJacksonMrJackson Member Posts: 323
    One could argue that the three on the right aren't: Exo-Suit was 2014, the gray one is a combo of several parts from various sources as already detailed, and the pink one is '19. 
    A certain point of view, I guess.
  • pxchrispxchris Oregon, USAMember Posts: 557
    That's a thing of beauty @MrJackson!! I love the entire presentation of it.

    (and just to weigh in, the dates actually make perfectly logical sense to me)
  • FauchFauch FranceMember Posts: 2,308
    you miss a silver one. there are some in the 2015 destiny bounty, but I suppose in other sets too. I'm surprised I don't remember seeing a red one, seems like it should be a common one like the mug.
  • dutchlegofan50dutchlegofan50 Zwolle, NetherlandsMember Posts: 202
    @Fauch yeah I missed that one. I do have the 2015 Destiny Bounty so I could 'borrow' one of the four included with that set. It's flat silver btw.

    At least anybody who has the goat has a complete set of goats. Why was it only in one set? Was it hard to make?

    Hmmm... that is interesting.  The cheapest one on Bricklink (in the US) is $30, primarily because it only came in one set( #7189 ).  Looks to have dual molded horns?   This set had another exclusive animal- the gray horse, which only appeared in this set.  Looks great and goes for about $9 US which is not too bad IMO.  Now I’m wanting to collect all of the horses... sigh

  • andheandhe UKMember Posts: 2,784
    The horse one always baffled me. They finally got round to making a grey one just before they changed the mold to the 'Lord of the rings horse' and have then continued to stick to brown, white and black as before.

    Yes I have still to find the real Metallic Gold too, also been sent the Dark Pearl Gold one a few time (sob)



    here I present my 2343 Goblet collection!
    I'm still searching for a real metallic gold one. I have ordered it 3 times from BL sellers in the Netherlands but so far I always received a pearl gold one (by the way: in the picture above you see a light pearl gold and a dark pearl gold one in the back row. A seller who has a real metallic gold one may drop me a line).

    Where's the dark tan sack from the Fox Costume Girl. It's unlike you to be missing a piece. ;)
