[Sticky] LEGO Color Overview / Comparison / Charts - Steffen - 2011-08-05

I would like to stick this post here
so we can start a collection of LEGO color comparison charts here.

There's frequently confusion about slight variations of the color codes,
and sometimes it is good to have different sources.

If you know a good comparison chart, preferably including part photos for examples,
reply to this message.

(Please put a clear, meaningful title to your post, to make it show up usefully in this list of posts.)

Niels Bugge's Lego Colour Design Tutorial - Steffen - 2012-03-10

This is not a table of LEGO colors, but I found reading it quite insightful and entertaining

PS
and I found myself laughing out loudly at Niels' page on which he let me know
that he has a problem with "dating models" hahahaha

Haha. Yes I think that problem is common to most AFOLs, and most non-AFOLs too.
