I agree, but I'd also have to add: what about trans-blue (regular, not light), trans-green (not yellow-green), and trans-red windscreens? It seems that all we've seen in some time is trans-clear, trans-smoke, and trans-orange.
For that matter, whatever happened to the awesome windscreens of yore?
Did they die along with finger hinges? Why would LEGO do such a thing? I understand LEGO's desire to trim the parts selection, but other than your standard bricks and plates, those were some of the best, coolest pieces that LEGO produced. Why LEGO, why?
