Can I sort by my most owned piece?

Is it possible, to sort by 'most owned piece' quantity? (1000 3001s, etc?

    Yes, https://brickset.com/parts/mycollection-Owned, then select qty owned from the sort by drop-down.

    Thanks, @Huw! Wow, that was a surprising result!

    What, you mean it wasn't black Technic pins? :-)

    I don't even have that much Technic, but black Technic pins are *still* my number 1 part! Apparently, I have 1,561 of them. Dear me!

    I have over 6900 of them, beating the next most (3M friction pin) by over 4000!
    4143005 is surprisingly high on the list.

    No, it was https://brickset.com/parts/6123809/brick-1x2x1-2-3-w-4-knobs. Black Technic pins are 2, at 1198. I expected 1x1 plates...

    It's number 1 for me too, with 7030 of them.

    Hmm, why does this return "0 parts found" for me? I presume it's not only counting parts that you've marked individually as owned, but is meant to count across the sets you've marked as owned?

    ^ Only if you've enabled the option https://brickset.com/profile/preferences 'Enable parts collection functionality'. It generates too much data to have it on by default for everyone.

    25,121 Black Technic pins here!

    @Modeltrainman, you presumably have a lot of BrickHeadz!

    I know you like your Technic, Huw, but that's bonkers! :-D

    I have a measly collection compared to the majority of you, but the Mickey Mouse Art mosaic has pushed the 1x1 round white tile to the top of my list, closely followed by the other colours…

    Huw, 25,000 pins is ridiculous. Do you know where they all are? ;)

    That 25,000 is just the official inventory, correct? So how many spares do you have?

    Probably double that figure in total, if all those in bulk buys and 'Brick Boxes' from fan weekends are taken into account.

    I I don't know where they all are but I do know where enough of them are to build with when needed!

    Interesting. Mine is also https://brickset.com/parts/6123809/brick-1x2x1-2-3-w-4-knobs

    725 of them? I have a lot of BHz, but not THAT many?

    I DID buy 10 Donalds, before we knew about Scrooge, Daisy.

    Also,@Huw, since it's applicable in this thread, how hard would it be to import lists from BL orders, like Rebrickable does? I'd like Brickset to have my master record, but it seems off on what I have.

    This really quite cool. For me all the usual suspects are there (technic pins and 1x2 plates), but the slight anomaly is the radiator grille in grey - in at number 8 with nearly 600 of them (more than 2x3 plate in the same colour, for instance).

    Then I realised - it's all the Star Wars greebles.

    It appears that black Technic pins are also my most owned element - I have 33,855 of them. My second and third most owned elements are also Technic pins and connectors, which is surprising since I'm not even a very big Technic fan....

    It's a sobering thought that the number doesn't even include loose elements - I'd also appreciate the opportunity to import my loose elements (from Peeron, in my case).

    For the record, positions 4, 5 and 6 on the list are 1 x 2 plates (light bluish grey, black and white).

    Importing could only work if part numbers are consistent and unfortunately that's not the case. We use official LEGO numbers, everywhere else uses something else, usually a hybrid of their own numbering system and LEGO's.

    We need Grand Lego Unification (GLU)!

    Same here, except it’s mostly the tan grilles from my three #21046 ESBs.

    That's too bad, really. Brickset has been by far the best part collection manager! No wonder getting a part number from Brickset often fails in Stud.io!

    Agreed; most of the sites already have color charts that span all the popular sites' names, it would be great to do the same for part numbers (especially printed parts).  I imagine that a certain brick reselling site's policies of content ownership prevents this from happening at the present time...LEGO certainly doesn't help by changing their part numbers every time they use a different mold tool as well!
