    Well here it is, i hate Pinco!

    i have been pursuing 2008 neon gift boxes of which i now have over 50 dif ones, thanks to pinco i can hue i.d them

    so why do i hate Pinco

    to give you an idea, and Manticore what do you think of the following?

    to elaborate, the lowest hue i.d box is number 1, Jet Black

    the pixellated one start at no. 1059


    the "list" shows 52 or so boxes, but if we "collectors" want to include the likes of 1156 Midnight Blue, 1161 Blaze etc THEN, how about these babies

    1159 (Tangle Colour)
    1150 Luna White (not 1153 AoS White) some of your collections are WRONG!
    1165 Light Blue
    1151 Frostwood
    1173 Emerald
    1163 RareMagenta
    1105 Ice Black
    1166 Neon Pink
    1172 Blood Red
    1175 Purple
    1128 Orange
    1171 Purple
    1191 Bloodwood
    1108 Ninja Black
    1169 Yellow
    1192 Yew
    1195 Ocean Blue
    1196 Olive
    1155 Green
    1160 Serpent Green
    1168 Pretty Pink
    1157 Maroon (same as velvet boxes)
    1164 Navy Green
    1167 Dryad Green
    1162 Dark Teal
    1158 Violet Courage Purple
    1148 Dark Reddish-Brown
    1050 Burnt Brown

    and so on.....................
    so if you fill in the blanks, thats over 100 boxes maybe even 130 odd

    not including the insane "mary Christmas" boxes i have seen at a rares collectors house!!!
    or the Angel box hues,Easter baskets, Battle chicken eggs, martis, artis etc ,Haochis Pigments


    there will NEVER be a full collection ANYWHERE!!!!!!!

    Manticore, no idea how to even create a new box collection screenie

    Mesanna, is there any way to see a definative list of all hues thatwre released in 2008?, the 2009 list was easy 21 hues

    This is precisely why I sold my collection when I had reached 48 different hues.

    I thought I was close, but when I realized what I had ahead of me---- cash out time.

    I don't really know how to comment on that hehe. I just stick with the multi-colored ones and the few solid ones (Black, Vet Ice Green, Blue, Ice White) and call it at that. No way I am starting that witch-hunt all over again.

    I trashed all mine for points so I don't have to worry about it anymore.
