Eh? If Mag won't make an LED light then they make different color lights instead. Now that is marketing! That saves a lot on R&D. I don't think Mag has an R&D department. Maybe Mag has just one person mixing paint colors.

Ok. Just got off the phone with my contact @ mag. They say that there is no new color. The most recent colors they released were jade/copper/blue shimmer.

They went on to say that they *though* that pewter and gray are 2 different color. I looked up the part #s they gave me, and I have to disagree with this. They did say that a certain degree of anodizing variance was acceptable and that is likely where the difference has come from.

Would someone that has access to a "blue shimmer" AA MiniMag please PM me. The price I pay for living in smalltown America is the lack of diversity in retail outlets.

Turbodog: Be sure to post pictures of your new display case. I have always been curious about what Baskin Robbins "31" flavors of ice cream were. Now I'm curious about your "31" minimags. I thought there were 20 "general" released colors plus the Nascar flame and finish flags,(are you counting the drivers series?) and the gold plated one Mag did for Neiman Marcus co. years ago. Then there are the 3 lights in the Americana collection. Are your other MM lights ones that are finished with "acceptable anodizing variance"s? What am I missing?

Roy and Turbodog, I'm heading off to WalMart later this afternoon. If there are any colors that I consider to be "unusual" I'll pick them up and post pictures. If they turn out to be some normal ones and no one wants them I can always return them.

Well, you know, you can get any color you want in quantities of 10k from mag.

Ok, here we go.

Two cases were made. Each holds 22 lights.

The material is mahogany. The corner inserts are wenge. There are hangers on the back for wall-mounting.

Here you get a good close-up of how the lights fit into the holders.

And here is it filled with lights.

Top row (left to right): flag, bronze, regular blue, fuschia, jade, light blue, pink, real gold, midnight blue, silver, black

Bottom row (left to right): camo, nascar spectrum, dark green, shimmer blue, orange, copper, purple, pewter, red, regular gold, lime green

Second set:

Midnight blue (smooth), regular gold, lime green (smooth), orange, americana 1 2 3, regular gold, copper


I spoke with the maker about making more of these cases. He said that this was basically a favor (I still paid him) to me for being a good customer through the years. If he was to make more, 10 sets (20 total ones) would be a minimum amount.

I paid for this about a year ago. Wife's getting some pottery and a red coat.

Snow..... about once every 6 years. We get about 1/2 inch and it doesn't stick.

Here's some better pictures.

Same layout as before.

And I have managed to mount them on the wall (in the den!).

Couple of things:

1. look on the back and give me the code, it will be something like "m2axxx".

2. buy one for me and ship it to me
