Now that another person (AN Parry) has it, it seems you can add trans light purple to the list.

Yep, I can give you two more if needed.

What's this about Trans-Light Purple? It's a Clikits-only colour which was retired 15 years ago. I struggle to believe that A) it's been revived after 15 years, or B) that someone out there has had a minifig in this colour for 15 years and no photos have emerged until now.

Lavender is now completeable with the release of the new Ninjago sets.

In addition, I've been alerted to the possibility of torsos in Paradisa Pink, and (old) Dark Pink. Examples of said torsos are currently on their way to me, and once I have them in hand I'll compare them with the (old) Pink and (new) Dark Pink figs I have, and decide whether they're the same or not...

It's possible it is trans lavender, but to me it looks like the light purple 4l bar. Waiting confirmation once I have one. Definitely seems like an ABS figure.

I am a bit suspicious with this figure. To the color experts, is this a current color? Otherwise, it seems hard to imagine it being authentic. It seems to have all the right marks, though.

Hmmm, where did that photo originate? Given it's got an Iron Man helmet on it, which currently seem to be doing the rounds of the ABS trans figures, I'm tempted to say that it's come from the same place - i.e. a Lego factory.

However, there is no currently available colour which looks anything like that.

I've just come across this Clikits element in Trans-Light Purple, which looks very very similar. So it does indeed look to be Trans-Light Purple. Whether it's genuine or not, or whether Lego have decided to revive the colour and it just hasn't made it into any official sets yet, is another matter...

I believe the Iron Man figure was posted on the FB monochrome minifigures group (on February 21).

Considering that the purple figure has legs in different tones, I have wondered if this could be simply a pink figure that resulted in a lighter tone. Seems pretty uniform, though, so I am unsure. This is quite odd. Don't the other Iron Man figures seem to be a tad different? The orange one seems like neon orange, which conventional wisdom says aren't made anymore.

Yes I agree. Although Trans-Neon Orange is a current colour. Also, the yellow figure looks a bit like Trans-Neon Green, apart from the helmet which is deffo Trans-Yellow.

The Iron fig Parry posted on FB (not the helmet, just the fig) seems like a PC neon orange to me, pretty much matches mine. The fig for the yellow helmet is also neon green. I'd say all the helmets are ABS. I also wondered if perhaps the other is a light pink, but it seems closer to the light purple.

I've updated my spreadsheet this evening, to add two more colours - 'old' Dark Pink Torso and arms (barely distinguishable from 'new' Dark Pink), and 'Paradisa' Pink Torso (distinct from old Pink).

Although Bricklink doesn't count them as separate colours, Lego do. Both are retired colours.

I'm holding off on that Trans-Light Purple minifig for now...
