Hi,

Can you help me the color of the different gold parts shown in the picture below.

The two on the left are from
 
Set No: 75183  Name: Darth Vader Transformation
* 
75183-1 (Inv) Darth Vader Transformation
224 Parts, 6 Minifigs, 2017
Sets: Star Wars: Star Wars Episode 3

The three in the middle are from
 
Set No: 70612  Name: Green Ninja Mech Dragon
* 
70612-1 (Inv) Green Ninja Mech Dragon
523 Parts, 4 Minifigs, 2017
Sets: The LEGO Ninjago Movie

In both sets, the parts are listed as Pearl Gold. However, the three in the middle
look more metallic as per the silver part on the right. Should I proceed with
an inventory change request to add the three in the middle as alternate Metallic
Gold parts?

Thanks,

Sebastien

No, definitely not. These are all pearl gold parts and they vary noticeably
in color. I've seen significant color variances in the same parts pulled
out of the same sealed set (half one shade and half the other shade).

It's just poor quality control from TLG.

What I sometimes do is to create two separate lots if I have a few of noticeably
different shades and list one batch as 'lighter pearl gold' and the other
as 'darker pearl gold' in case someone buys the whole lot. Is extra
work though but helps the buyer as they will know in advance they will get two
distinctly different shades. Pearl Gold is a bit of a nightmare colour.
