As usual, this just demonstrates my frustration with LEGO's color naming scheme. Why can't they just call them "Light Green" (what some refer to as Lime green), Green (the color that typically comes in brick boxes/carts), Dark Green? And what's the difference between their "Bright Green" and "Dark Green" (which is different from my "dark green," which they call "earth green")? Sand Green about the only name I can agree with them on.
What's this "medium blue" which is clearly not regular blue and darker than "light blue" but lighter than "dark blue"? How often is this color even used? Is this even a common color?
And don't even get me started on the greys (which has nothing to do with the grey/bley thing). I've bought a considerable amount of sets, and I've only ever seen what I call light grey and dark grey, so why do they have "light stone grey", "medium stone grey" and "dark stone grey"? Which corresponds to which, and which is the odd man out? How often is this "odd man out" color seen, anyways, because I've never run across it.
Of course there's "brick yellow," which is actually "tan." Is it really that hard for them to come up with better names for the colors. It's not like they're Crayola here.
Maybe it's more a complaint against this particualar chart, but it's obvious that certain colors are common and others aren't. The common colors; red, orange, yellow, green, blue, tan, brown, white, light grey, dark grey, and black should be called just that to identify them. Adding "bright" to the equation just makes things confusing. You may say, "It's just they're coloring system, and it doesn't really affect you," but you're wrong. This is the same naming system they use on their online PAB form, and is one of the reasons I don't like to use it. Who knows if the color you're ordering is the one you actually want.
Finally, there's the "numbering system" which really appears to be a "let's use a random-number generator to assign numbers"ing system.
Sigh... I know LEGO didn't have to put this out and that they did it as a gesture of good will. Still, it pains me that LEGO has such a disorganized and scatterbrained coloring system. I thought they were trying to get the whole color-pallete under control. Looking at this, it seems to me they still have a ways to go.
