Which do you prefer in CCBS sets/MOCs? Black bone pieces? Grey ones? A mix of both? Feel free to share your opinions in detail and discuss!
I would say black bones since I mostly have black ones.
It depends on the MOC. If the gray blends in, then I'd use it. If not, then I'd use black.
I like consistancy, but that's just me.
Depends. I am currently making a villain and due to his dark personality having a darker color works best. Also black is more common so it is what you likely have more of.
I find that if it's a black, green or white MOC, grey bones work best, and for red, brown and blue, black works best. I don't have many CCBS pieces to speak of, but I have seen enough MOCs to get a general opinion.
Black. It's much easier to use. If there were grey balljoint parts it might be different but probably either black or a mix of two, but only if those are the only colors in the MOC.
Black bones are about as Dandy as they get.
I prefer black, but gray bones can have its uses sometimes.
Usually black, if it complements the colour scheme. But in general, I just wish Lego would stick with one colour for the bones (Ahem 3.0).
Depends on the color scheme you're goin' for.
in sets, it depends on if it can be blended in
I hate it when lego mixes both in
Black bones are coo
I don't really care. I use 'em all
I have a lot more black bones than I do grey bones. Usually, my templates for MOCs include "structural colors", for things like CCBS bones, socket pieces, and TECHNIC. For Skyburn I used both black and grey (the grey references his sonics powers), and tried to spread out both in the inner structure of the MOC.
I do not like black bones, and avoid using them. I use white, yellow, blue, red, green, and grey whenever possible, and I wish just once Lego would make a CCBS set without black. The black on every set drives me crazy(except on the sets that are actually black, like Stinger), and I hope they fix that with the next Bionicle wave or sometime in Bionicle.
While they're at it, maybe they could make a set or two without silver or gunmetal. In other words, like the Raanu set.
Also, Black works better with lighter colors, while grey works better with darker colors :3
Also, moved this to "LEGO Creations" because it's most relevant here.
@Hawkflight For me it does xD
All depends on what looks I'm going for with the build in my case.
I definitely chose black as it's not even a colour and kind of goes good with everything.
