CITY minifigures renumbered

Posted by ,

In January we reported that BrickLink had catalogued over 1000 Star Wars minifigures so was renumbering them by adding a leading zero. It caused us a few issues because of the way we link to the BrickLink data that we import.

This week the numbers allocated to CITY minifigs has exceeded 1000 so the LEGO marketplace has just renumbered them, too. Thankfully, BrickLink database administrator Hygrotus reached out to me to give warning it was going to happen so I was able to change the data here to prevent similar issues from occurring this time.

The work is now complete and everything looks OK as far as I can see but if you notice any anomalies, let me know. You might need to log off and back on, or close your browser window and return to the site in 1/2 hour or so (to allow your session to expire) if CTYxxxx minifigs are missing from your collection.

There are still a few Star Wars figures that are still affected, they won’t delete from my wanted list

Which ones? I've just looked, you want 22 of them, all of which have the new numbers.

There were a few anomalies like that that will be fully corrected overnight.

Huw - I have SW 0991 0995 0996 0999 on my wanted list which I cannot get rid of. Each of the 4 mini figures appear twice on my list.

I can send you a screenshot if it would help?

Good -- I de-duplicated the database table.

@Huw Looking great, thanks for all your hard work keeping the data flowing.

Is there a reason all minifig numbers are not future proofed with a 4 or just to be safe a 5 digit number?

To be honest, the whole BrickLink minifig ‘numbering’ system needs an overhaul. There seems little rhyme nor reason to which groups get a letter code.
