Yellowed with Age
A vignette illustrating one of my worst Lego frustrations.
About this creation
A simple vignette illustrating one of my most frequent Lego frustrations.

I'm sure we've all had to go through the aggravation of having a white Lego piece that's anything but white. I feel your pain.

The room is based on the real appearance of my college dorm room.

"White"

"I thought this box was supposed to have white pieces."

"You're Kidding Me..."

"I really needed this piece in white."

Sitting on the Floor

I always sit on the floor when I sort.

My Room

Basically what the space in my dorm looks like.

Work Table

Perfect for college students.

I know what you mean. Thankfully, my off-white pieces are pretty beat up, so I don't use them anyway. I really liked how you made the desk, I had never thought of building a desk that way. Nice job!

I've recently been working with lots of white, and so this really hits close to home. If only bleach would take that out!!!

I'm glad that hasn't happened to me. I'd say the most common frustration is having an odd number of the right piece available. It happens with every mech! I'm sitting there building happily, and I need 4 more red tile, but wait, I only have 3! I can't just go out and drive to the store, because I'm still too young to drive. Nice vig BTW. I got pretty carried away just now. ~Ping Phong

I kinda like the variance in color myself, gives things a little character. I'm talking about a little color fade here, not a dirty brick, I don't like those.

I find myself reminded of the endless hours of floor-time I must have cumulated in my former life as a Lego builder... Very nice photography and a very true message. Ever consider bleach or anything?

LOL I love this! Great little dio! I've had great success with the bleaching method - you have to use a good strong bleach about 50/50 with water and leave it to soak for about a week - Bright Sparkly White bricks! Don't do it with any other colour though, cos then you'll end up with a box of pastel coloured bricks - hmmm that might be useful ...

Nice little vig. Great job on the computer desk. I actually don't mind those yellowing whites. They work great for some color variation in castles and so on...just as long as it doesn't happen to half my collection. Then I'll be writing to my congressman!

Very good but shouln't there be a chair too? (The good thing about the problem You described is all those white pieces actually become tan! And we all know how expensive tan is for a color.)

I agree with you, for almost all my white pieces are yellow. Some of them are even forty years old!

I heard you could restore the color by putting the pieces in bleach. That didn't turn out so well, so I tried "whitening" toothpaste. That didn't do much either. So I just decided to create a new color category instead.

I have no white anymore. Instead, I have the color of a candy-lover's teeth. Curses!
