Missing Barcodes

RikTheVeggieRikTheVeggie CanadaMember Posts: 343
Figured I'd start a new thread for barcodes that are missing from current set details, please move or merge with another thread if appropriate. Maybe a "submit updates" link on each set's page would be useful for people to supply information currently missing?

I only have a few so far, when I pull my boxes out of storage I'll go through and add any that are missing.

These are all 12 digit EANs (US)
40080-1: Friends Pencil Holder : 673419196543
850581-1: Friends Brick Calendar : 673419194839
5001621-1: Han Solo (Hoth) : 673419200127

    Good ideas; in case it's helpful to anyone else, I made a couple queries for all sets you own that are missing barcodes.

    Excellent idea @Joseph, that'll stop me having to cross-reference each of my sets and should save quite a bit of time.

    Currently the most efficient way to add barcodes to the database is to scan them on an Android (or possibly iOS) device from If you scan an unrecognised one it will ask you for a set number.

    @Huw - is there a webservice call behind this that I can integrate into the myBrickset app? If you don't want to officially publish & support it you can LMK via PM/email, or ask me to figure it out myself :)

    Not yet but I could add one.

    That'd be great thanks. I've figured out how the mobile site does it atm, but a proper service would be less hacky than relying on an unsupported interface.

    I'll pull out my poly collection tonight and scan some. I have most of the first page of the search results. Didn't even go on to see what else. @Huw Will it update the barcode in the database immediately after scanning so that the query will update?
  • HuwHuw Brickset Towers, Hampshire, UKAdministrator Posts: 6,760
    Yes it should do, IIRC.

    I think I reduced the ones missing barcodes by at least 100 poly sets.
  • RikTheVeggieRikTheVeggie CanadaMember Posts: 343
    @Huw - updating the barcode puts an entry in the item's history, but it's not showing up when I call "updatedSince" through the webservice. Should it?

    Added some more barcodes today. The following sets already have US barcodes but they differ to the ones I have, so either they're wrong or there's more than one:

    10197 = 673419169127
    10218 = 673419169226
    7595 = 673419143738
    10220 = 673419198547
    10216 = 673419169202
    4432 = 673419163095

    The modular buildings have 3 or 4 different barcodes, I've seen a number come through over time, not really sure why.
