Standards for Inventorying a Minifigure

  • No Hand-Held Accessories - The inventory should only include minifigures as they came in an official LEGO set without any hand-held accessories. If the picture of a minifigure in the catalog does include hand-held accessories, please consider Adding an Image without hand-held accessories.

  • No Extra Items - The inventory should only include those items that are needed to build the minifigure according to the building instructions. Any extra minifigure parts, such as visors, should be included in the Extra Items section of the set inventory.

  • No Alternate Items - Minifigure inventories do not allow for alternate items such as the variations in the head stud type. If the variation is significant, consider adding a new minifigure to the catalog, but it is at the discretion of the Catalog Administrators whether it is accepted. If the variation occurs a significant amount of the time, then consider submitting a change request to the minifigure inventory; acceptance of any inventory change request is at the discretion of the Inventory Administrators.

  • Headgear - Always include Headgear and any removable Headgear Accessories as shown in the appropriate assembly instructions for the minifigure.

  • Torsos, Arms and Hands - Minifigure inventories should contain the complete torso, arms and hands assembly. Use only torsos from the Minifig, Torso Assembly category. If an entry is not found, then please go to the Add Item to Catalog page and add it under that category. Then, if possible, Add an Image. Only torso assemblies as they came in an official LEGO set should be added to the catalog. A minifigure with a stickered torso should have a stickered torso (not a plain torso) in its inventory.

  • Legs and Hips - Minifigure inventories should contain the complete hips and legs assembly, not one entry for the hips and 2 entries for each leg. Use only the legs from the Minifig, Legs Assembly category. If an entry is not found, then please go to the Add Item to Catalog page and add it under that category. Then, if possible, Add an Image. When the hips and both legs are all the same color, use the 970c00 Hips and Legs assembly

  • Neck/Body Wear and Footgear - Always include any Neck/Body Wear/Footgear as shown in the appropriate assembly instructions for the minifigure. Skis and surfboards are not considered footgear and should not be included. Items that come on sprues are to be listed as individual parts in minifigure inventories.
