Hard-to-Find LEGO Colors

Two years back, a new hue was included in the LEGO Color Palette. This made the solid colors to reach forty on the palette. The color that was added was not a new one, it was an old color that was reintroduced. What they did was to bring back the 107—Bright Bluish Green. This hue was reintroduced in the #10260 Downtown Diner set that was released a while back. If you want to see this hue, it can also be seen if you buy the 2018 Elves sets.


Before this time, the newest hue had been introduced in the Friends line, which was in the year, 2012. During that year, they brought in Medium Azur, Spring Yellowish Green, Medium Lavender, Olive Green, and Aqua.

Apart from the aforementioned colors, they also brought in Lavender and Dark Azur the year before. 


Usually, when LEGO introduces a new hue, a lot of fans are interested. They do the same when a hue is tweaked or retired. The same can be said for model builders. Usually, it takes a longer time before a new hue can be gotten in different parts. For a long time, the number of parts that you may be able to buy in that new hue may be limited. This means that their usefulness will be restricted for a long time. After a while, it will be easier to get different parts in that hue. 



Instead of merely jubilating that new hues have been made, we will take a look at solid colors and rare hues in the LEGO world. It is important to note that not every color comes in the same number.


In the world of LEGO, the ten commonest colors usually make up about eighty percent of the bricks that are created annually. The rest of the hues, which are thirty, make up the remaining twenty percent of the parts that are made. They can be ranked from those that are relatively uncommon to those that are very rare.

We will look at those hues that do not have common hues. We will go across some common tiles, plates, and bricks.


Hues That Are Common, Uncommon, and Rare


Common colors

These hues can be in every part or in almost all of them. This means that you can decide to use the color throughout to build whatever you crave for. You won't have to worry about substitution because almost every part can be gotten in this hue. 


Uncommon Colors 

These hues can be seen in many parts, but there are some that are missing, which may leave you having to substitute. This can be all shades of annoying. They are not as common as the common colors.  


Rare Colors 

These hues come in a few parts. This means that you may not be able to see every part in these hues if you intend to build with them. You can utilize them as the accent color in your models. They can be used to decorate the model for aesthetic purposes, but if you want to build an entire set with only this hue, it will be almost impossible.  


Common Colors 

It is important to note that the hues in this group are quite common, though some are more common than the others. If you are thinking of creating a project, you should consider putting these hues in mind.You can get different parts in these hues. All you need to do is order online.  


The following are common colors:


154—Dark Red

Rare Colors

These are the hues that are very rare in the commonest parts. Two Flesh hues are used mostly in Minifigure hands and heads, but you see them being used in other parts. 


Many of the rarest hues are not new. The 135. Sand Blue came out in 2001, yet it is rare. You can see it only in twelve of the twenty-four commonest parts. The 312. Medium Nougat is one hue that can't be seen in plates but may be seen in bricks.
