The Periodic Table of LEGO Colors V2.0
Free standard shipping worldwide!
In the early days of LEGO, there were only a handful of colors. White, tan, yellow, orange, red, blue, green, grays, black, and some translucent colors were introduced back in the 1950s and ’60s. LEGO fans were limited to this narrow color palette. The downside of this was that they could not make their models very realistic; everything from houses to spaceships was built with the same few colors. Through the following decades, more colors were added. Some were short-lived, while others we still have to this day.
So how can you take advantage of LEGO colors?
Using more colors helps you to tell a story, to combine colors to highlight important details of a LEGO project.
If you spot a color that you would like to work with, but you aren’t sure how to combine it with other colors, just look at the Periodic Table of LEGO Colors. It will show you the number of the sets the color appears in, and you can study the optional color combinations. The Bricklink and LEGO IDs also guide you through all the pieces made in that color, so you know if you can get everything for your project.
The Periodic Table of LEGO Colors helps you to better understand the power of LEGO colors throughout decades and also improve your creativity to freshen up your own builds.

How to use?
The Periodic Table of LEGO Colors is like the Pantone color chart for designers but slightly geekier by featuring the most popular LEGO colors in 2021.
Are you familiar with the feeling when it is hard to spot the slight variations between similar shades of LEGO colors? It’s oooooover. 🙂
There are more than 180 distinct colors in the LEGO rainbow while some of them may look similar but The Periodic Table of LEGO Colors has an excellent distinction to show off the difference between the ‘light grey’ and the ‘light bluish grey’ for example.
A perfect handy tool for collectors and builders – from novice to pro – to spot the difference between ticklish shades. After all, it’s important to know your palette before you set out to make your masterpiece.
The 'science' behind'
The core strength of The Periodic Table of LEGO Colors is its ‘unplugged’ physical way to demonstrate 65 different colors via new and genuine LEGO parts.
Before you can understand its ‘unplugged’ strength, it’s useful to understand how color works.
You may recall that there are three ‘primary’ colors of light: red, green, and blue. Digital devices (computer, laptop, tablet, smartphone…etc.) can create any color by mixing those three colors; when mixed in equal parts they create white light. This is why colors on your digital devices are often described as “RGB”, short for red, green, blue, and colors are often more vibrant than in real life.
LEGO bricks are not made of light; they are made of plastic. Pigments are mixed in the right proportions to ensure that every LEGO brick is the right color. The color you see when looking at a LEGO brick is the color reflected by the plastic brick when a white light is pointed at it.
This is why it is difficult and pointless to compare physical bricks with colors on a monitor.
LEGO Builders – boost their creativity to freshen up their own LEGO builds and help them study the optional color combination to achieve realistic building skills.
Collectors – help to better understand the history of LEGO colors through decades.
LEGO Part dealers – help buyers and sellers on BrickLink better identify part colors and also help to better understand how and why different LEGO colors affect the price of LEGO bricks and pieces.
LEGO fans – great accessory / wall decoration for kids- and AFOL’s room and a unique gift for every LEGO lover btw.
