Shapeways color comparisons

Does somebody have color comparisons between Shapeways colors, and Bionicle piece colors? I have red, white, and black already, but would like to see how close the other colors are before I buy them.

Alright, I’ve come back to (partially) answer my own question, since I’m sure this will help someone out at some point.

White

Shapeways white is more pure than Lego, which seems to be slightly warmer in tone

Black

Black is slightly brighter, but that could just be due to a rougher texture

Red

Red is pretty close, and I don’t think an untrained eye would notice it without taking a longer look, but Shapeways has a brighter shade of red

Green

Green is duller, appearing as more washed out

Yellow

Yellow is the most different I’ve seen thus far, being very noticeably paler than what Lego has.

If anyone has more colors to fill in, feel free to add them in below
