TBs TechPoll 19 (Results) - Which other colors would you like to get more often?

Quite a while ago TBs raised a poll for you to tell us about other colors than the traditional ones actually used at LEGO Technic sets, that would be among your preferences to see used in new sets and parts available for your own constructions.

After two weeks and over 500 hundred votes, the results have been visible in the right side column. Finally today I managed to conclude this and register the results into a dedicated post, for future reference.




With a large distance to its followers, the Orange came at first place.

Following colors doesn't show any substantial difference among each other, and they include colors like Green and Dark Blue. Some seen before, but others never used before into a Technic set.
Besides resting at fourth place in the poll ranking, Dark-blue got several mentions in the comments section as being a quite desired color.
Trans-Clear also got a very substantial result in the ranking, but guess it might be useful mainly for particular parts or usecases.

Some interesting comments were raised to the original poll post supporting the desire for an increased number of colors to be used in LEGO Technic sets, but a common concern refers that such an increased may not succeed if they won't get commonly available in variety and quantity, that would allow AFOLs to build their own models easily.

Meanwhile I leave you with an image suggested by Junkstyle Gio, for an hypothetical orange version from the 8265 Front Loader.




Cute, isn't it? Just loving it!

I think the orange 8265 set looks great.

Hmmmmm, don't think I like orange. I've re-coloured a number of sets and I couldn't find any that looked any better orange.

What about the much awaited 8043?
I do think it looks great in Orange.

Let's see what TLG will come up with if they decide to give us a new colour....
