When Lego first burst on to the toy scene, its bricks came in a very limited selection of colors; now, there’s an overwhelming range of choice. This chart shows how the available palette has changed over the years.
Video games sales charts are problematic, especially with regard to all the things that they don’t take into account like digital sales. Kotaku UK takes a look at the British charts situation and talks to developers and fellow journalists about possible solutions.

If you want to build something for the U.S. military, you're probably going to have to make a diagram or a chart to demonstrate how it'll work. Might as well bust out Illustrator and paste together the weirdest diagram possible.
Who are the largest dragons in fantasy? Be warned, this chart contains dragon size-related spoilers for A Song of Ice and Fire.
Size matters. Especially when it comes to starships, giant monsters, buildings, and . . . well, pretty much anything else that you can obsessively categorize using common measurement systems. Here are some of the most outrageously detailed size comparison charts you'll ever see.
The 3DO and the Neo Geo are still the most expensive consoles ever—including when adjusted for inflation, but you'd be surprised how ridiculous the Intellivision's price looks now in this chart prepared by Ars Technica. The feature also examines price drops over all consoles' lifespans.
Vector's appearance as one of two new games in this week's Android chart has got me thinking about switching things up. There's just not enough variety in the traditional week-to-week top games rankings, so starting next week I'll be tracking top new games instead.
Imangi Studios' Temple Run: Oz launched on iTunes yesterday morning. Today it's at the number one position on the paid charts, and Mila Kunis isn't even in it. The mind boggles.

The free iPhone word game 4 Pics 1 Word is pretty damn popular. So popular that an app that allows players to cheat in the game debuts this week at number six on the free iPhone game charts. Sheesh.
Last week it was Infinity Blade, this week it's Plants Vs. Zombies. It's really not fair to the real free games when you temporarily give away wildly popular paid iPad games you guys.
I've been rather hard on Activision's mobile Wipeout game in the past, largely because it's based on a silly television obstacle course show and not my beloved series of PlayStation hovercar racing games. Today I'm just so happy to see a new game in the Android paid charts that I don't care. C'mere Wipeout, you big…
There's something magical about shooting stick figures in the head from extreme distance. After years of being persecuted by these two-dimensional, monochrome tyrants, humanity is finally rising up at taking back their dignity. Pure fiction, but it helps me justify two separate Clear Vision sniper titles on the iPhone…
I've only been doing these weekly charts since fall of last year, and this is the second time a free dental simulation game appeared on the free charts. At least this one features cartoon animals getting their mouths drilled full of holes. I can understand the appeal.
Oh look, it's Minecraft Pocket Edition at the top of the Android paid game charts, recovered from last week' brief bout of Ruzzle fever. There's not a single new game on the Android top paid charts, just the usual suspects shuffling about. Mosquitoes are starting to breed in it.
