New feature: Minifig browser

Posted by ,

I've completed the next part of integrating BrickLink's minifig data into Brickset. The Minifig Browser (linked to on the Browse tab) lets you see all minifigs in a particular theme and the sets they appear in. The sets in the list are coloured green if you own them (and you're logged in) making it a breeze to see which minifigs you own in the sets you own.

I'm not done yet with this, I'll add more features when I find the time (and can think of them!)

What about a parts inventory? And with those parts, you can see what sets you can build but don't own.

What about a feature which shows how rare a minifigure is to find? They could be rated as Common, Uncommon,
Rare,or Extremely Rare. I just thought it was a good idea. :)

How about a minifig counter? You know when you check the sets you own, in the right top corner you see the number of sets you own, you could add a counter that tells you the total number of minifigs you own! That would be awesome!

Great! But I have a couple of episode 2 clones and not the old gunship or At-Te (brother got them from a friend I think). Can you make something that would show minifigs you own but don't have the sets for? I know a lot of people buy individual minifigs on eBay, too.

What about something that lists the individual minifigures you own from the setsthat you own?? That way you could keep track of your collection.

I too would find it useful if the was a list of figs you own.

Great feature, but a list of minifigs you own would help me alot more with keeping up with my collection.

Brilliant. I've already found this extremely useful.

One question: Why isn't Orient Expedition listed under Adventurers? Technically it's a subtheme, right?

Actually, -although both have Johnny Thunder- Orient Expedition is it's own theme.

That would take FOREVER. As if the Minifig and Minifig Browser features didn't take long enough. (Thanks for making the features anyway, Huw)

@longtowner: there is some discrepancy between Brickset and BrickLink for sets with the same number. This looks like being one of them. I'll fix that when I next do an update

Do Rock Monsters count as minifigs(I'm referring to the Rock Raiders theme)?

Peeron has one, but it makes you import sets from Lugnet, which I don't have an account for.

Gravatar

That's because that is what Peeron is for.

Pretty useful, but not for me unfortunately, when pretty much the only LEGOs I collect nowadays are BIONICLES. That's me, BionicleBOOM.

How about a special section on rare minifigures? That would be cool.

Gravatar
By in United States,

By the way Huw, all of these additions are greatly useful for me and others in the brickset comunity. Thank you.
