Deciding favorite lego pieces is really hard.....um.....I am going to say the 1 by 1 round stud, because you can build so many things with them. You can build walls, paths, greebles, and tons of other stuff!

My favorite lego color is trans-clear!

Some of my favorites:

-2x2 corner plate. Very useful for landscaping.

-1x2 slope 45. Very useful for rocks.

-2x2 tile.

-Pnuematic t-joint (mainly for sci-fi and such)

Favorite color: dark tan

My fave parts are anything to do with the hinge joint. T-joins, clips, anything! Most of my transformers rely on hinge joints, and I'm proud of it...

I like 1x__ slopes in general. They are really great for rock work. I also like the pieces that allows you to attach SNOT easily (I don't know what they are called...)

I like arch pieces as well. They're really useful for LOTR building.

Also the semi-new 'brick bricks' are good pieces (but I don't have any :()

I have 23 in light bley, plus 4 in dark tan.
All in built sets, though 18 of the light bley ones are easily accessible.

Another favorite piece is the cheese slope, because of its versatility. It can be used in a spaceship, on rocks, as shaping on a figure, for mosaics, as water, etc. So many great uses.

Sand green is another nice color. Not a lot of versatility but it's good for ponds and such.
Medium blue is useful for water, sky, mechs, etc.

One by ones that have studs on all sides except for the bottom. Cheese slopes are awesome for making stuff look clean. I like bigger pieces, like armor for mechs. But then the one by ones, grey, black, white, and dark grey . . . Necessary for my mosaics.

They should make a reverse cheese slope!

I was able to get a cheese slope to fit upside down by friction, but I think I deleted the image of how I did it. Rrg.

As long as the inverse cheese slope on top of the cheese slope equals the height of one brick.

I really like the LEGO element 87087 - so useful for SNOT building and adding cool details to almost anything! I especially like to use them when making rock formations.

While I was searching for what piece it was, I found this MOCpage that lists a whole lot of system LEGO elements:

You can do that with those technic pegs with a stud on one end... But they often make a small height difference with the connection, so that is not the best way.

I like sand green, light green, medium sky blue, dark tan...

My favorite piece is possibly this one: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=4733

Or the cheese slope... or the 1x1 round brick...

By the way, I think I have a brick that could be taken into consideration as one of the smallest lego pieces... It's not particularly useful, though.

By light green do you mean lime green? (that's actually one of my least favorite colors, at least for landscaping...)

What would that small piece be?

I once picked up a bag of, say, 50 Lime green 2x2s. So there's a good reason for liking the color.

The small piece is a 1.5 studs-long tile with an opening on one end so it fits over a second stud. It is from a thinner plastic than an actual tile and gets slimmer from the bottom towards the top. Printed on it is the word "Claris." It might not be Lego, but it fits on any lego brick perfectly...

Top part of a lever is still the smallest piece.

And I have tons of lime bricks and tiles, but I still hate it, at least in landscapes. Just because I have a lot of a color (dark red, for instance) doesn't mean that I like it...

I actually got a lot of dark red 2x2 bricks at the P-A-B wall when I went to the LEGO store a few weeks ago :) You'll see some of them in my large MOC. I hope to finish it this week, then again I might not :/
