Minifigures - time to start using Brickowl instead of Bricklink?
As the title suggest, is it time to start using Brickowl for defining the minifigures in the Brickset database rather than Bricklink? Lots of weird stuff is showing up as minifigures now due to the way Bricklink cataloguers are changing things to fit rules rather than using common sense. LEGO's own Bricklink seems to strongly contradict what LEGO calls a minifigure.
We have already seen these "minifigures" appear at Brickset:
No doubt these ones will be appearing too, as Bricklink now calls these minifigures:
A possible natural extension will soon be that any character built from parts will also be a minifigure no matter what it looks like.
Is it time to sever the link now that LEGO Bricklink's new catalogue administrators seem to have completely redefined what a minifigure is based on applications of badly written rules leading to absurd decisions to skirt around defining what a minifigure should contain and instead use data from more sensible sites such as Brickowl.
