Nice collection!

If you´re not afraid of Brasso you could add:
Posted Image - Lime
Posted Image - Dark Green
Posted Image - Pearl Gold
Posted Image - Olive Green torso/legs + Posted Image - Olive Green head/hands. Just missing hips now.

And a link to a Monochrome Minifig Maker by FigBits.

Thanks for that! I haven't looked through these year's new minifigures yet.
I knew about the dark green head (there is also one in the summer ninjago-sets), but not about the Lime and Olive Green figure parts.
I own a plain lime head, so there would only missing a plain torso and hips.
Olive Green would miss plain head, plain torso, hands, hips and headgear.

I also noticed that chrome black is only missing head and plain torso (which will probably never be made, but who cares...).
Chrome Silver is missing head, hands and unprinted torso.

For me, Brasso is like cheating. All parts I own are regular or non-production parts, so none had printings (exept those you see on the picture + the unfinished colors where I mentioned the missing plain torso)

Thanks!
I remember your postings (#1 & #2) at 1000steine.de. It was the beginning of my collection. Most of the time I ordered some parts or minifigures on BrickLink when I had to reach the minimum buy.

The yellow guy is naked!!  :tongue:  Sorry, had to say it.  :wink:

But seriously, it's a nice set of pictures. It's actually something that I wanted to do. Thanks for sharing.  :thumbup:  I'd very much like plain chrome gold, silver, and bronze figs, like those in the CMFs trophies. That would be sweet. Alas, why would Lego do that...

Anyways, sorry for rambling. It's a very interesting set of pics.  :classic:

That's a very nice collection and really well photographed, the colour wheel in particular :thumbup: . This also makes a nice reference piece, I might have a quick look here the next time I need to find a particular coloured part on Bricklink :grin: . I'm surprised that there are no plain torsos in bright green or dark bley.

Wonderful! Love the colour wheel.


Is it possible to make trans clear minifigs? I wondered, as I have a head and a chefs hat but didn't know if there were trans bodies.

Hi! I've decided to start collecting monochrome minifigs, so I've ordered couple of legs and plain minifig heads. Now my question is, where do you guys find plain torsos with hands in the same color?
And do all existing legs have torsos and heads in the same color?
And I am purist, so I don't want to wipe out prints ....

My current collection:

If someone wants to add a hair piece to my list, please feel free to post picture in this thread. I will be very happy :), because I don't own all the hair pieces.

Some characters have blank torsos and hands in the same color. The Chewbacca minifigure comes to mind in that under the head piece is a blank torso.

As for if all parts have corresponding parts in the same color, I would venture to say no.

Thanx, i guess i will have to separate minifigs torsos, arms and hands to complete some colors, i was researching little bit on bricklink and there are a few blank torsos from collectible minifigures like hot dog guy torso and from monsters series, big foot and the grey ghost.

It would be great to see an assembled list of current minifigures that have blank parts to collect from. Like for example:

Brown Torso - Chewbacca
Brown Legs - Chewbacca
Brown Arms - Chewbacca

Legs and hands would probably be easiest since they're often solid colors. Heads and torsos seem like the tricky part.

For many you are going to have to pull hands from arms and arms from torsos (and also legs from hips for some).
I have quite a few LOTR / HOBBIT minifigs available for trade, see here.
