    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.







    enjoy..

    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 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...

    totally AWESOME!!!...........i sure wish i had started collecting years ago........obviously the fun here is in getting the ones that just don't seem to exist, but we know they are still out there.

    recently i found a place in England that has the "Maglite Racing" version in the Solitaire, 2AA and the 3D size.................searching like crazy for a couple colors i thought that would complete my 2AA collection, but Noooooooooo, turbo just upped the antee here...........fabulous collection indeed.

    +1 on what will said - those glass-doored cabinets are spiffy!


    I'm looking at those pics again and again, and it seems like I'm missing "braun", "weinrot", "anthrasit" and that spiffy faded violet that Sizzle has on the top row.

    ...just when I thought I wouldn't get more, the bug bites again...

    Thanks guys- I blame the addiction on all of you- especially Roy & TD's photos from part II. Thanks for the bad influence!!

    Yes, what ledeon said- time for some cases fellas! I really like Jeritall's design. Be sure you make em' big enough so you can display all the solid colors in one case. If you hunt color variations this puts it at around 30 slots needed!

    Green- are those all HA lights? Did I hear you have a black HA light? Those are beauties!

    Happy hunting

    Thanks, Ledean.

    I've always liked minimags, and I swear I never thought of collecting them. Actually I never knew there were so many colors! It happened almost randomly. One day I was at Target and spotted the copper ones. I had never seen that color before so I bought it just for... I don't know... it looked different or something. Then I found blue at a grocery store, and picked up red at a hardware store. Before I realized what was hapenning, I had the basic colors. Then I saw Roy's pictures in the first minimag collection thread, and the rest is history. Every time I think I have them all, something new pops up (dang you guys!).

    Once I move outta here I'll have a nice case made for all of those. Right now they sit in a closet, inside a sealed container.


    Sizzle, just the two in the middle are HA. The second from the left came from wtraymond, and the darker one I got from trivergata; it's so dark it almost looks black under certain lighting conditions. But nothing like VWTim's black HA. I'll definitely get a pic for you - it's a *nice* light; hard to describe the finish too - almost matte. I posted a WTB a while back, but nobody ever offered.
