Would it be better in the future to include the inventory of one part figures
with that one part?

That was what was done initially and I thought it was a clever workaround to
the issue.

I would say no. There are many more of these figures than you may realize and
each one would require duplicate entries in the catalog - one part entry and
one figure entry. It makes no sense to me to have an inventory which consists
solely of the item itself. What's the point?

It would also mean, as I mentioned, creating hundreds of duplicate catalog entries
and splitting up the price guide for an item depending on if the item were sold
as a figure or a part.

And, if you took this policy to its logical conclusion and expanded it to other
items besides figures, then it would mean creating additional duplicate entries
so other single-piece items could be inventoried. Things like this, for example:
