Find minifigs by name, not character name

asherkobinasherkobin Member Posts: 188
For example https://brickset.com/minifigs/name-timmy will show this. But there is also this Timmy. I think the "name-timmy" query uses the "CHARACTER NAME" tag. But I'd like to find all Timmys. Is there a way to search using the "NAME" value? So a search for "Timmy" would return both "Timmy - Black Short Legs, Plain White Torso, Red Cap" and "FreeStyle Timmy with Black Legs and Green Wizard / Witch Hat" would come up?

    FYI: Timmy last seen in 2006 in various airplane sets - 4032. Seen as an adult (?) in 10158. First regular appearance in 1996, and last in 1999.

    PS: I wish I could edit my own posts. The 10 minute timer is too short, I'm sure there's a good reason for it and has been debated. I do realize this isn't reddit :)

    It’s a six minute timer :)

    Searching by character name means that data must have been entered for it to work. Whereas the titles will have been imported from bricklink and so will contain all info from when it was catalogued at BL. So a search for Timmy and selecting minifigures might be better than a query on the character name.

    Thanks. I realized this the next day. Dang I wasted a lot of time.
