  I just noticed this today, but maybe it has been brought up.

Part 2453 used to be the hollow stud variation and 2453b was the solid type

Now 2453 has been changed to undetermined type when I look at my inventory...
Now when you go to 2453a there are no sets listed with this variation


same with 3684...

is this a bug or should I start switching all my inventory to the 2453a etc...
?

any help is appreciated!

The catalog request topic is for you to request that catalog administrators change

would like to see?

Sorry! first time posting in here..

I guess I just wanted to find out if Dk Grey can be added to the known colours
list!
whether it's possible, without listing the set it came in (as we don't
know yet!)

Nope. The “known colors” list is automatically calculated from sets contents,
there is no manual involvement.

Niek.

It came to me, from another collector, who found around 8 of them in a bulk lot

I have examined the part, and it appears to be genuine.. exact same molding
It has 1-01 stamped on it (one of my light-grey ones has 4-01 on it)

As the picture shows, it is an exact dark-grey match.

Unsure of what set it came in - not sure if it's possible to find out!

Thanks for reporting this. I have added your image under the Dark Gray color.
If you'd like to submit a better one, please do so here:

Don't be confused by BL's known colors for a particular part. That only
means that it has appeared in sets (that have inventories). There are plenty
of parts such as yours that don't fall under BL's known colors, because
they never appeared in sets, or are in a set that hasn't been inventoried.

British spelling
My first teacher also taught me not to pronounce the ‘t‘ in “often.”
(Her first lesson also was “English isn’t like French: All letters are sounded!”
And then her second lesson was “There’re ghost letters….”)

To go back to molds, a rough count tells me there’re a bit less than 12k parts
that are not (categorized as) stickers, aren’t patterned or stickered (their
Id doesn’t end in “p[xb]#”) and aren’t assemblies (Id ending in “c#” or “c#p[xb]#”).
Still quite a lot

Just curious.

Colours aren’t counted but stickered or printed parts are.
And stickers and strings and….

So it’s not strictly speaking “mould” types.

According to the catalog, these heads are "similar in mold type"...

Please have a closer look. The heads have similar patterns, but the patterns
are not the same: The spectacle frames have different forms.

I think that if you use this site for some time, you know where to go for the

This, exactly. I kept looking to do it through the logs, or eventually the search
page, while it was just there, under my big nose.

The changelogs seem to only follow changes, not additions.
