#114 Did You Know: Colour confusion

Today I will try a new type post, that I think you guys might prefer to the usual set analysis on Sundays; they tend to be long posts with many features I have previously covered. So these posts, if I continue them they will be quick and short; a LEGO fact that you might not know that contributes to your building skill or is just interesting.


So, did you know that there was a lot of confusion when the LEGO Group changed the colour of greys back in late 2003/early 2004?

The colour used to be stone grey, but is now called bluish by the community because of the "cooler" shade of the colour.

As you can see from the picture, the difference is very small, but can just be disguised, therefore causing confusion between builders when it was introduced.

It was changed for widely unknown reasons, but if you are interested take a look at this article: http://news.lugnet.com/lego/?n=1791
