  1. Anyone here has found a safe way to create transparent green color Lego pieces out of Trans clear pieces? Just like the Turmeric technique to create trans yellow pieces.
  2. I always build my MOCs in Studio first, and time and time again I found myself wishing I had a Lego color chart that would not only be a reference to identify colors, but would also help me decide on colors for my designs by allowing me to try out different patterns, so I created this: (Click on it to see the full size. It shows colors as rendered in Studio with these settings: Asteroid, Intensity 1.) At the moment, it’s not possible to build it, because many colors don’t exist as 1x1 bricks or 1x4 tiles, but I would really like to have this made of real bricks, so I also submitted it on Lego Ideas. The cards could then be used like paint swatches, you could hold a card against a MOC you are building to see which color would look best for a certain part. And the 1x1 bricks (plus 1x2 tiles for transparent colors) would allow us to experiment with colors and try out different color patterns, like this: I also designed a little display stand to hold the cards: If Lego releases new colors, it would be easy to update the cards either by expanding them with a second plate or by replacing colors that you don’t use often with the new colors and keeping those that you rarely use on an extra plate that you store away. Lego could sell the parts you need to update your chart in the ‘Pick a Brick’ section. I have also considered the possibility that it might not be possible anymore to manufacture some of the older colors. If that is the case, my proposal would be to print a background as close as possible to the color it should be on white tiles and white bricks so you can still get a good idea of how it looks. You would then have the possibility to replace those printed bricks with already existing bricks of that color if you wish, which would be better than not having them at all. (But at the end of the day, Lego would decide which colors they want to include or not.) I know that only very few ideas have been approved by Lego lately, so if you can think of any improvement that you feel might give it a better chance of being approved by Lego, let me know. Here is the link if you would like to support it on Lego Ideas:
  3. A little something I threw together to make my life easier when creating custom LEGO decorations for LEGO Digital Designer. These are color swatch sets for Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop, featuring all current brick colors (according to BrickLink), with black and white color corrected to match LDD's black and white. The Illustrator set is organized by catagory, and since the Photoshop swatch system doesn't allow for this, each catagory is its own set. Even though these are brick colors and not decoration colors, it seems to me that most decorations tend not to stray very far from this palette. Download Illustrator Swatches To install the Illustrator swatches, download the file and place it in "C:\Users\[YOUR NAME]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator [VERSION NUMBER] Settings\en_US\x64\Swatches". Once in Illustrator, open the Swatches window, and from the dropdown in the corner of the window choose "Open Swatch Library>User Defined>Lego Colors". Download Photoshop Swatches To install the Photoshop swatches, unzip the file and drop the *.ago files into "C:\Users\[YOUR NAME]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop [VERSION NUMBER]\Presets\Color Swatches". Then go to the dropdown menu in the corner of the Swatches pane and select "Replace Swatches", and pick the one you want.

    Color Explosion

    This colorful LEGO mosaic of mine was made in Jan. 2022. Color Explosion by c.behrens, on Flickr It is made of 4 x 9 = 36 stk. 32 x 32 LEGO baseplates. It gives a total of 36.864 studs or 1 x 1 LEGO bricks. It measures 102 x 230 cm.I have used bricks and not plates. There is used a total of ca. 18 kg LEGO bricks included baseplates.It contains a total of 64 different colored LEGO bricks. It was my goal to get as many different LEGO colors in it as possible. The brand new 2022 color Neon Yellow is also in it. And also the color Light Nougat that is new in basic bricks is in it.It even contains a Metallic Silver brick in the middle and also a 1 x 1 brick in Pearl Gold rains as stardust over the artist name. In the middle there is a ring of "fire" that is made of the brick color Glow In Dark White. That way the picture attracts attention even in the night.The picture has the working title of Color Explosion, but I have 21 suggestion for new / better / other titles:1. Ring of Fire (Refers to the glow in the night)2. Color Explosion3. Life is in Colors4. Big Bang5. The Creation6. LEGO Colors7. LEGO Explosion8. Colors9. Color Circle10. Paletton11. RGB (RGB stands for the three primary colors red, green and blue)12. Color wheel13. Color art14. HOT15. Colored16. Orgasm17. Genesis18. Colorpalette19. Colorful20. 64 (Refers to the total number of colors)21. The picture with the many names.The picture hangs in my bedroom at the end of my bed. In that way I have a beautiful "sunrise" every morning and it reminds me of the creation of the world, the big bang, - or the beginning of a new and wonderful day. And it also reminds me that life comes in many colors and shades. There are sad gray days and those wonderful bright days where everything shines. Lifes ups and downs.In the evening when I go tired to bed it reminds my of, that it would be nice with a lovely colorful and explosive orgasm. So you understand that it is a nice colorful picture to have in my bedroom.What do you think of it? Do you have a good name for it? Or what name do you find the best?Please comment and post below!

    Two Men episode 2

    Two Men, my latest creation, Lego and friendship... I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a colourful and friendly 2021 and thank you if you have the time to support me on Lego Ideas
  6. Hello! I recently bought a 3D printer and I am trying to make my own custom Lego pieces. Spray paint sticks to the custom pieces quite well, but it's being hard for me to find the right colors to match the LEGO ones. Can anyone recommend brands of spray paint for specific colors? Or maybe techniques used? I'm looking in particular for Flat Dark Gold and Flat Silver, but I'd be interested in any color you have experience with, for future reference. Thanks everybody, hopefully this topic can become a little database for people in my situation.
  7. Hello everybody, I'd like to recolor some Bionicle pieces to make some 2003 style Matorans (Kongu, Tamaru, Onepu, Damek). However, because there are socket balls articulations involved, I thought it might be better to dye the parts instead of painting them. I've seen some videos about dyeing LEGO using Rit dye (this video was most helpful). I was wondering, though, if anybody ever made a guide on how to obtain results as close to the actual LEGO colors as possible (brands, ratio dye/water, timing etc). I'm mostly interested in Teal, Purple (the old one, prior to 2004) and Lime, but I think any information would be interesting for the community. Thanks!

    LEGO Color Guide

    Hello, The third edition of The Unofficial LEGO Color Guide is now available. It includes two new colors and many design improvements. I am finally pretty much satisfied with the book. Please notice that the printing process remains a challenge since CMYK printing is not able to accurately reproduce some LEGO colors, in particular light greens. If you want the maximum color accuracy then you need to purchase the PDF version. Your computer screen is much better at showing colors than pigment based printing.

    LEGO 497 Galaxy Explorer

    I´m in the process of reconstructing/replicate the Lego 497 Galaxy Explorer set. With respect to the colors of the gary bricks, some e-sellers identify them as being "Light Gray" or "Medium Stone Gray". Which is the correct color for the set? Thanks in advanced for your assured response.
  10. So, I've been doing some building lately with brown plates, and I've noticed they're a little brittle, and break easily. The problem with brown by North White, on Flickr Are my pieces just old or something, or is this a common problem?
  11. The chosen Heroes all stepped off their respective boats in the docks at Carthago. The city's hot sun beat down on the Heroes. Some locals looked in awe at the newcomers. Others, having dealt with Heroes before, seemed to pay no heed. Only the guards truly watched closely. The chosen met on the largest pier and looked back into the city.

    LEGO Colour Questions

    Hey there! Couldn't find any suitable thread so I thought I'd start one What's the purpose? Finding and gathering information about colours which have been used by Lego and for LEGO pieces. To start it off, I have quite a simple question: I have the chance to get my hands on Set 7047. I was wondering if the colour used for the water on the included baseplate is matching normal 32x32 baseplates in Blue?
  14. Hello I'm still very new in the Lego hobby as an AFOL, so please do not be too strict if my question is for a "professional" banal or sounds stupid. How do I clearly recognize the right Bricklinks color name of a Lego element that I have in fact as an object in front of me? The fact is that the color perception depends on the light with which an object is illuminated and thus one and the same color can look different. In addition, the colors of bricklinks also display at a self-luminous monitor, which makes a safe color comparison with an illuminated object even more difficult. Unfortunately, without a color-calibrated printer and paper, printouts are also not suitable for performing reliable color comparisons. So how do you know which Bricklink exact color the Legobrick has in front of you? Only by long experiences and/or comparing with stones whose exact color you know for sure? But there are so many Bricklink colors, how to get reliable reference sample , especially as a beginner of every "challenging" color? Lapidem P.S. I have written this text with the help of the Google translator , please apologize if the text should sound odd for a native speaker

    LEGO Color Palette

    The LEGO color palette remains a mystery. Yes, there are many AFOLs who tried to identify all the colors and even TLG provided some information. The problem is that they all disagree with each other on the exact color definitions. I wrote a blog entry on my analysis. Have you found a precise definition of the LEGO color palette?
  16. I did a search on this topic, and it really hasn't been discussed in a while. I was curious about what other's favorite colors might be. I have been gravitating towards the darker earth tones, I have noticed. My favorites are: dark orange dark brown dark red dark tan medium dark flesh I like to build buildings mostly, and want to try and work some of these colors into everything in some way. Trouble is, a lot of the the necessary parts to build a MOC are not available in each of those colors... so there will always be a need for the light and dark bluish gray and white.
  17. Hi, I have been working on making a large Galactus figure in LDD, intending on buying the pieces necessary and building it in real life once I have finished. I completed the head (I'm building it in sections) and went on Bricklink to check the general prices of the bricks I need. For some reason, though, there is one piece: (Inverted Roof Tile Corner in Dark Purple or Medium Lilac) that was not available on Bricklink, and I have not been able to find anywhere. This kind of screwed me up, because I assumed if it was available in that color in LDD, it would be available in real life. Now I have to figure out a way to bypass this issue when I actually build the figure. Any one else run into a problem like this?
  18. Hello, the user L@go recently shared pictures from the Lego World. In one of them a Maersk train in green color scheme is shown: I wonder if anybody ever tried to build it in further color variations? I am particularly interested in cheaper variants because I think about bricklinking that train and I dont care so much to have it in the original azure color scheme. It is a shame that I was too late to get the original Lego Maersk train. Edit: Attached a cropped image of the green maersk train:
  19. (I just noticed that the title got cut off. After the / it was supposed to say "shield," with a question mark.) I've been wondering for a while if the part pictured below, used to join Tahu's "lava surfboard" and Kopaka's "frost shield," came in colors that corresponded to the colors of the parts they're used on (silver and white, respectively). I recently looked it up and it turns out that a white one does exist (last used in 2011), and although a "silver metallic" one doesn't technically exist, I was able to find one calling its color "silver" (last used in 2003), which is close enough for me. Given that, I thought I'd pose this question: why do you think the Bionicle set designers didn't use this piece in colors better suited to match the pieces they were used on? I would have preferred if they had, because then the pieces wouldn't be so obvious or contrast so much, and I'll be replacing the piece with a silver one on my Tahu, once I get it. -Nomad
  20. The Heroes all arrive at the Docks at relatively the same time. There, they see a brown wooden ship, trimmed with black. Various sailors and workers are bustling around on the ship loading and unloading cargo. A seagull lands on the railing only to be quickly shooed away by what looks like the captain of the ship. The seagull squawks and flaps its wings away. Then, a glint of light catches the Heroes' eyes. They look to the left on towards the poopdeck. They see the glint is coming from a small, blue gem held by a man in a darker blue shirt and bright green pantaloons. His eyes hold a look of aloofness under the mop of blonde hair on his head. "There they are! Some of Heroica's finest warriors!" The man casts an eye towards Miderun and Annienal. "And some of the prettiest ones if I might add." The blonde man pockets the gem and walks down towards the gangplank and waves the Heroes on and they follow. "My name is Fabio Sumero. My brother Javier posted the notice about the acquisition of some of the rare dyes from the island of Tridentia." Fabio bows low to the Heroes in greeting. He then looks to the two women and says to the entire group, but directed towards the girls, "Perhaps you've seen some of the Sumero Family's work." Fabio then casually pushes a stray lock of hair back. "Do any of you have any questions?"

  21. Four heroes, one with a great deal of experience, and three who had just been given their first quest for Heroica make their way through the docks, looking for a man in a bright, colorful robe over a drab shirt and trousers. In the distance, they see the man they are looking for. Hearing the approaching footsteps, the man turns around, a look of relief coming to his face. "Oh thank goodness, you four are here," the man says. "You have no idea how much we need heroes right now. Oh, I completely forgot. I am William Morris, a tailor down in the town of Tridentia. We're actually a trading colony far to the south of Azzurat, right near the Pearl Sea." Tailor William Morris pulls out a map and shows it to the Heroes. His smile widens as he looks where his town is. "Sir Carvenhall, since you are the most experienced of these worthy heroes, could you lead the party? Also, do you all have any questions?"

  22. Greetings! I opened up LDD recently after a while of not using it, and I'm not sure if this is because of an update or not, but here goes.When I select a brick from the palette in Extended Mode, a window pops up and you choose between the colors that piece has been produced in, no others. Then, when I go to select multiple bricks to repaint, I can't do it. Clicking on the paint tool removes the selection. The only way the paint tool is currently working for me is to click on each piece manually and recolor it, again only in a color that's been produced. As a majority IRL moccer who mostly uses LDD for the infinite color/piece feature, I'd really love some help here, and I didn't see anybody who'd had the same problem. Thanks!
  23. Hey EBers, I want to change the color of the parts in 8110 Unimog. Any advice on what technique (painting, dyeing, etc.) would be best? I'm totally inexperienced with this stuff. This would be to enhance the look of the vehicle with an all-black bed, chassis, etc. Thanks, have a good day!

    A Child's Dream

    While Mitgardian children dream of warmth and nice blazing fires (due to the absence thereof in the ordinary course of their lives), this is what Kaliphlinian children are dreaming of: The doorway to the castle: Aerial view, so you can get a better sense of the waves & how the water looks: I'd like to claim PU DoH credits for wall technique #2 (for the SNOT sides), round walls and towers, waves, and art (might be stretching it a little with art but I'm not sure exactly how to interpret it, otherwise). It would have been considerably better if I had managed to make conical tops for the towers, but that proved too difficult with the limited amount of time I had! C&C are welcome though, and thanks for taking the time to check it out!

    MOD - Nick Fury's Flying Car

    This is more like a "mod" than MOC :) I have finally got the 76004 set with Nick Fury, Spider Man and Venom (I love Venom!), but the green car does not look right in my setup which contains the original Quinjet, original jeep and my MOC Avengers truck. So I just turned it back to the official blue color... And now everything is all good and ready for battle!
