  1. Of course TLG doesn't want the LEGO name used to describe LEGO-compatible bricks, however they're made. Because that is a slippery slope - if people get used to describing all bricks as LEGO, then LEGO becomes a name for interconnecting bricks, rather than a name for one brand of interconnecting bricks. If you doubt this, consider that in the UK (not sure about elsewhere) a vacuum cleaner is known as a hoover. I hoover the house, and when I go to buy a new one, I go to buy a hoover - even if I buy a completely different brand. The problem with this for the Hoover brand is obvious - how do they distinguish Hoover the brand from generic hoovers (i.e. all brands)? The answer is that they can't really. Once people refer to all brands as your brand name, you're knackered. That's why TLG is so precious about protecting the brand. They always have been - all large brands are the same. If a company describes one of their products as 'the Rolls Royce of [whatever]', they'll get a nice little cease and desist letter from RR's lawyers.

    2019 LEGO Trains - 70424

    I suspect that Lego have done this to solve the problem of not being able to connect a long plate under the wheel set. There's a few times in the past (when I was building trains) that I wished I could attach a plate underneath, and it's possible they decided that doing so would make a stronger connection. Otherwise, why not just make a single wheelset with plastic axle attached?

    I think I see a right arm in Vibrant Coral in the new CMF series. Not sure about any other new recolours yet though.

    I'll try to remember to do it on a computer tomorrow. Doing it on my phone would just be too painful, scrolling up and down all the time...

    There's a full list of colours and what is available in each in the spreadsheet I made available, which is linked in an earlier post. In terms of the photo, I'm not going to name the top row as I think the transparent ones can be worked out. Middle row, left to right: Medium Lavender, Violet, Coral, Chrome Silver, Sky Blue, Light Purple, Blue-Violet, Dark Flesh, Glow in Dark Trans, Glow in Dark White. Bottom row: Pearl Light Gold, Pearl Dark Grey, Flat Silver, Dark Turquoise, Sand Purple, Yellowish Green, Sand Red, Medium Orange, Pink, Bright Light Yellow, Purple.

    I've also found something here in the UK which is amazing for wiping parts. It's called Quixx, plastic polish for acrylic glass. It's in an orange tube. I've wiped four torsos and four legs with it in the last hour. It wipes torsos very easily, and leaves no marks or extra polish at all.

    I forgot to post this in here when I completed it a few weeks ago: I'm also pretty close to my goal of owning every minifig part possible in every colour possible. I have a few orders still to arrive, but pretty soon I'll only be missing prototype parts and really expensive parts like Chrome Black... Here's a photo of all the rest of the figs I own:

    Yeah Merlion. I got a few parts from there. I already had the chrome gold keyring, but I bought the chrome red one from a european seller for about £7 or so. Not too bad considering the price of some parts!

    ^not a clue. I got mine from a seller in Singapore. As per above, seems completely genuine when compared with other colours. My collection is complete now, I just need to wipe three parts. 40 colours, plus the Chrome Gold and Chrome Red keyring figs.

    I've spent a little bit of time modifying my spreadsheet so that it's suitable for anyone to use as a reference to what (I believe) is available. As an aside, there are two colours on there (both transparent) which don't currently have any parts available at all. However, given they are current colours, I thought I'd include them anyway. I haven't differentiated between parts which are available with and without printing, as that's quite difficult - there will always be parts which aren't officially available without printing, but which show up anyway. If anyone spots a mistake, or believes there's a part available that I haven't noted, please let me know. The link to download it is here.

    Minifig head is new in Trans-Purple in the new Ninjago dragon set 70666!

    Well the other day I ordered all the remaining parts I need to complete the rest. The only exception is the Chrome Gold hands I need to finish that (keyring) figure. But they are very rare. Some sellers on Bricklink have some torsos etc that aren't printed. Sure you'll pay more for them, but there y'go. This is not a cheap subsection of our hobby! I'll see about making the spreadsheet into some kind of format which is easy for others to use.

    Thanks! There isn't an official list or anything, but I've made a spreadsheet of all the parts of all the different colours that are available, and I'm slowly ticking them all off. From that, I reckon there's a total of 41 currently able to be completed. Without removing prints is a different thing entirely, as it is possible to get torsos etc which haven't been printed, but which only come in sets as printed. In other words, they're very likely from a factory before they've been printed. None of the minifigs in the image I posted have had printing removed.

    Yeah looking at the official pics I think they are DBG. Shame if it is Tan. Yeah the legs and arms are dual moulded, but the torso and hips aren't, which is a start!

    Am I right in thinking that the Tin Man CMF has Flat Silver hands? :) Also, does the Scarecrow use a Bright Light Yellow head? And a torso and hips in Vibrant Coral!
