As far as I know, this is a complete list of all the officially-released colors. Custom runs are excluded as are significant tint variations.

This is mostly standard colors, a few logo items, and a few variations of colors.

UMM .. no - these are all standard, except the long one. I have a few that that have glass lenses, only one with a 20 reflector. I started to design a case. I like glass cases with glass shelves, that way it is not locked into any one thing or format.

The nice thing about the Minis - the cost to collect is not out of this world.

Wow, those are some pretty impressive collections. I really like the display cases. Very nice! Too bad there is no place that offers all of those colors and styles for sale in one place. That would rock :)

The fun is in hunting for these lights and the atisfaction of getting them.
Not much fun in buying it all in one go.
My two cents..

I agree with this also - a few years back there were no gold anodized lights anywhere. I finally found one and got it. Now, there are always a few gold anodized lights available on ebay. I still question if they are direct from Maglite. Maglite stopped that color years ago.

What Ledean said. I wouldn't've bothered if all the colors were easily available.




Anyway, I've been wanting to do this for the longest time; here's my collection:




Here are close-up shots of similar shades (labeled from top to bottom, or left to right where appropriate):

greens:
jade - greenLED (aka Kelly Green) - green - lime green



blues:
purple/violet - blue/purple, this came labeled as "blue" but has a distinct purple tint to it - midnight blue - blue - shimmer blue/BLS - ice blue



pinks:
fuschia - hot pink - pink



reds, orange & Nascar fade:
Nascar fade - orange - red - "red" (labeled as such, but a darker red, what we've been calling "burgundy"



gold & silver:
silver - gold ano - gold plated - orange



browns:
copper - 3 shades of bronze/brown, still gotta sort them out



greys, black, camo, HA:
first pic: camo, dark HA, light HA, grey, charcoal, black



This one is to show the subtle difference between grey and charcoal:
(black - charcoal - grey/pewter - copper - pewter/bronze)



Hard Anodized:
HA-NAT - from wtraymond's GB
HA-NAT - from trivergata
HA-NAT(BK) - from trivergata (this is the darkest HA you can get; it's black, no dye)
HA-BK - VWTim's (unknown pedigree, dyed black)
Type II black minimag



Some vintage packaging:
blister pack, "plastic tubes", engraving differences (original - new)


My ~1:20 scale minimag pinewood derby car:




I still need to go back and check all the color names, etc. (especially with the browns).

I should have never wandered into the collecting forum, and this thread. Now I have about 6 different minimags on order ;)

I can't think of any other 2AA flashlights that have been with us for so long and still working great. My collection is not complete . There is always that color that you have'nt got ..
Roy and his minimags with the beautifuk wooden case (oak?)have inspired a lot of us. I don't think the pictures do justice as to how great they look .

It seems like there is always another color! Just when I thought I had them all, Will comes up with one thats new to me. I seem to be missing "Wein Rot" (?) and maybe LED green (???). I think most of the fun is looking for them...
