The quest for image perfection continues...

Posted by ,

Since I started my quest for image perfection just over a month ago, I've been literally bombarded with emails and DropBox submissions of scans, for which I am very thankful.

Today, I've just finished scanning and adding around 100 instruction cover images that Andy from minifigforlife.com sent me in the post last week. Thanks Andy!

A total of 769 images have been sent, which brings the total number of images that have been replaced to 4250, of which 3209 have large versions available.

But, there's still a long way to go before we've replaced all those that need improving, so if you haven't already please view the list of sets you own that need a better image and get scanning!

^ Seems to work for me (returns 0 results, though, as I don't own any sets that need a better image :)

same here:

Sets I own that need a better image
This query was created by Huwbot.
SELECT * FROM Sets
WHERE (ImageQualityID = 0) AND (isnull(Own,0) = 1)
ORDER BY SortKey ASC
No items found.

No, just one image needed, usually I prefer the instructions but those examples are photos of the boxes in LEGO's vault so are perfectly fine. In any case they are not on the 'wanted' list :-)

I have quite a few items on my list, 19 in fact. I had better get going...

Regarding images. Do you just want a scan of the front cover of the instruction manual? I only have 1 that it says you need.

Huw - I know you are a stickler for good grammar. I double whether you have been literally bombarded with emails. If you have, I'd change your mail client from a B52.

Is there a way to get the list of sets that need a better image scan? I have not taken the time to add My Sets but I have dozens of Town and Castle from the 80s and 90s.

First of all please log in Brickset. After this clikk on the refered link and the system will find set(s) from your collection which is missing from HUW wishlist.

I get the same error:

How am i supposed to use that :) I'd appreciate your reply! Thanks!

^ That one is actually not to bad but most are too pixelated. It's also a chore checking them all.

^^ It's not an error, you simply don't own any we need better pictures of...

Thanks for the clarification!

Good luck with your awesome work!
