Hi,

The recent New York Times article (http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/06/business/global/06lego.html?pagewanted=4&_r=1) says that there are now around 7,000 parts (down from 13,000). Is there a list anywhere of what these parts are?

Also, the colour change message (http://news.lugnet.com/lego/?n=1791) that you linked to mentions a revised colour palette – is this available anywhere?

Thanks,

Frankie

Dear Frankie,

The problem with creating and posting a list of current elements in production is that it is constantly changing.  If the product designers want to add a new element or bring back an old one, they have to take another element out of the system.  It would be nice if Bricklink.com and Peeron.com added an option to look at elements released in sets for the past year.

Peeron.com has two color charts:

Peeron colors: http://www.peeron.com/inv/colors

Official LEGO Colors: http://www.peeron.com/cgi-bin/invcgis/colorguide.cgi

Their official chart contains colors that are out of production.  Perhaps one of our readers has a link to the current palette.

Sincerely,

LFan
