[Resolved] Problem with minifigure collections

Posted by ,

We are currently experiencing an issue with the minifigure database, affecting minifigures in sets disappearing from your recorded collections.

Rest assured, we are looking into this problem and hope to have everything fixed shortly!

Thank you for your patience.

Update: Minifigure collections are now working again. I wish I could take credit for an ingenious solution but the overnight updates appear to have rectified the issue!

Well, at least I'm not the only one.

Bless the maker; I feared the population had been decimated by a sudden plague.

LOL, I was worried when saw my like 2,000+ minifgures drop to 200.

I knew that LEGO Infinity Gauntlet was a bad idea...

Omg I was so worried when I lost like 700 minifigures! Will we get them back because seriously it took me ages to count.

I was worried when the minifig count said I owned 0 figures.

My collection drop from 1,900 to 33 but, don't worry......
because they are not in the inventory, it does not mean that they do not continue to exist for each one of us!!!

Phew! I'm glad everyone else has experienced this issue, not just me. I hope it gets fixed soon!

Phu, thanks for the info. For a moment I was afraid 3987 of my minifigs was kidnapped and sold on the black market.

Good. I was expecting an answer to my message today telling Brickset team all my minifigs - but those "owned loose" had disappeared from my collection and asking if it was an account issue or a global one. Once again glad to see that it might be solved fast, as usual. I also noticed a few days ago, after adding two new sets to the collection, that related minifigs were eventually not added to the total count. Maybe this was the beginning of a bigger problem. Thank you.

Will we have some of the features from the brick set website on the brick by brick app?

That explains why I now have 4 instead of 700...

I have only one, too. 350 died and who survived? Superman! :)

Could we get an option to indicate that we have a set without the minifigures, since you're working on minifigures? :)

@alyxavior
Happily, that option is already there! Check out the FAQ (Named "how do I...") on how to use Collection Checkboxes.

Thanks for the reassurance, had just noticed something not right. If anything, made me realise just how much I take this site for granted. Currently cataloguing 1040 minifigs, would take so much longer otherwise and I've already been at it for six months.
Keep up the fantastic work, please ....

@Fillone: got me thinking too regarding taking Brickset for granted. It really is an indispensable resource. Interesting too that only loose minifigures remain, for me that resulted in a motley crew of Aragorn, Gandalf the White, Dooku, Palpatine and Nute Gunray being the only survivors. Now there's a dinner party!

Thanks guys! I thought I must have accidentally deleted it, so I'm glad its just a problem on the website.

Wow! My Minifigure collection! My life's work! GONE! At least for a bit. If I re-add my mini figures to my collection, will my collection have twice as much when the problem is fixed? or will it account for the ones I already added?

I had 1,000 lol now I have 16 XD

Thank you so much for working on this website to make it better for everyone!!

You guys are lucky, I have 0 left!

@Nick:
I know, I have 0 as well! :-0

Oh man! I new something was wrong. I'm at around 2,900 minifigs but the current count is 382.

Funny story, my sister-in-law is asking for another Game of Thrones Monopoly game for her birthday.

I pointed her to the Malibu Stacy with New Hat (Simpsons) and she retorted by inquiring how many Luke Skywalker minifigs are in my collection (also mentioned that I buy 3 of everything).

Currently, the database shows 1 of him (in 3 sets). I was able to send her a screenshot and downplay my ridiculously large collection.

It says I have a single figure. Thanos has gotten a bit out of hand.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Well it's nice to know that out of my 1000+ I have 11 owned individually I suppose.

Hope this is sorted asap.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

44 minifigs lol!

I swear I owned more than a thousand ??

Gravatar
By in United States,

From 666 figures down to 11. Must be the Devil's work! ;-)

Gravatar
By in United States,

went from 2,500+ down to 72 lol

Gravatar
By in United States,

I went from 200+ to then 0 and now it's back to normal

Gravatar
By in United States,

My minifig collection and count is now back to normal. A huge thanks to the Brickset team for resolving this issue! (at least for me, and hopefully everyone else)

76130, the Spiderman Far from Home Stark Jet set, still has no entries for Minifigures.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

^Minifig entries for sets are taken from Bricklink. Suspect it's not been inventoried there yet.

Gravatar
By in Belgium,

Yeah they're all back! Reminds us of how great this site is and we shouldn't take it for granted. Nice job Bricksetteam!
