The Colour of R&L ...

One of the things that I have discovered, in my time actively collecting R&L, is the colour (or 'color', as you Americans put it!) dilemma - the difficulty that seems to exist in identifying all the different colours that a particular series was made in.  This issue fascinates me, as I imagine it does for all you collectors, also!

I would like to use this page as an opportunity to put together all the information I currently have on this subject. What I present here may or may not be fact - it's just the information that I currently have. I encourage anyone who has more information to let me know - whether you can add to what I already have, or can correct any mistakes or poor assumptions...

This issue obviously covers many of the R&L sets.  I intend to concentrate on my three favourite solid series - The Fringies, Tooly Birds and NepTunes.

I am starting off by identifying possibly five colour categories;

I think there are potentially unique colours in each category, but I am not particularly interested in the colours of the Mexican reproductions. I will concentrate on categories 1 to 3 (and 5, for anything left!) - select one of the above to continue.

Thanks to Brett, Peter Markmann, Craig Hall and Mike ("AstroNit"), who have either directly or indirectly helped me with information that I have used to make a start on this subject.
