(I looked around and couldn't find an answer, so I apologize if this has been asked already...)

For BF items listed as "dark grey", is that old dark grey or new dark bley? Judging by images (like the proton pack), it appears to be old dark grey but I figured better safe asking.

Thanks,
m19

From the dark gray that I own, it seems to be old dark gray. While I can't (yet) vouch for the colors of the new items, I don't see why that would change.

All of the dk grey items so far released are old grey.

The answer is yes. As a matter of fact, the items that were just released will be available in Dark Blue Gray in another two weeks or so.
We've had a lot of mixed feelings regarding offering the additional color but enough time has elapsed that the younger crowd are beginning to think that we have issues color matching!

Yep, us newer customisers find that the old grey just doesn't match with the current stuff. Also, I noticed that the crowbar looked like it was in the new blue gray. Correct?

That's great news– I know I for one was about to an order and stopped cold when I realized it's old grey, so I'll gladly be revisiting those items when bley makes its appearance. (Not that I have a color preference one way or the other, as my collection spans both colors. It'll just be nice to match the majority of what I'm working with now.)

Thanks,
m19

Good to hear. I didn't think anything of color matching. I hope you'll keep offering the old grey, variety is important to me.
