Evolving LEGO color palette

Oct 19, 2015

DaveE from the Brickset Forum was curious about the changing LEGO color palette, so he looked at newly released bricks over the years and charted the color results. I would’ve preferred a stacked area chart (more like this) over the multiple pies, but I appreciate the topic more than I dislike the layout.
