Missing Polybag Information

Does anyone out there have information on the following polybags:

http://www.brickset.com/detail/?Set=7806-1
http://www.brickset.com/detail/?Set=7807-1
http://www.brickset.com/detail/?Set=30016-1
http://www.brickset.com/detail/?Set=30022-1
http://www.brickset.com/detail/?Set=30036-1
http://www.brickset.com/detail/?Set=4897-1
http://www.brickset.com/detail/?Set=7612-1
http://www.brickset.com/detail/?Set=7613-1
http://www.brickset.com/detail/?Set=7796-1

Stuff like, were these ever released? If so, what countries and how were they distributed (retail, promotion, magazine promo etc).

...I've tried not to include anything from 2012 as it's not even halfway gone yet, but I know there would be a lot of interest in knowing more about this one:

http://www.brickset.com/detail/?Set=30170-1

Being able to backfill this sort of info in the database would be nice.

    can't you contact the one that says they own it?
    Huw might be able to help you to find the names?

    you are a bad guy Andy, because now I put some more polybags on my wanted list!

    ;)

    The only one which I've ever come across as a physical release so far has been 7613. I think the others on the list are destined to exist in digital and PAB/BL creations only.

    As for 30170, I'm gonna guess at being offered with purchase in the near future to shift the last of the Heroica range. It started strong but only one new boxed expansion being listed for release now? Although the range has done well in Italy, which has seen a few more promotional releases and organised events than other territories.

    ^^ I don't know, I think that may be frowned upon as it could throw up some data protection issues. Oh and sorry about that Eric, don't worry though, you won't be able to get hold of them anyway ;-)

    So, this is call to anyone that owns these sets to let us all in on the secret! Of course it could be that those people that have marked them owned have just built them from parts.

    Yeah I noticed 7613 was available from the Netherlands on Bricklink, wonder where/how it was available?

    ^could these not be like so.e of the star wars ones. Where they are instruction only and so the idea is to make them out of your own parts.
  • atkinsaratkinsar Member Posts: 4,272
    Yes absolutely they could, but it'd be nice to know for sure one way or the other.

    Im guessing if they have not been released thats what they really should be counted as. IMO if they have not been released by now its doubtful they will ever see the light of day. So arent really poly bags also need to be released in a bag.

    I have tried to contact lego for the 30016 satelite a couple of months ago, and they could not tell me where and when this polybag would / was available

    I'm curious - how does the information for sets like this even get populated into the database when we're not even certain if they were actually produced?
  • atkinsaratkinsar Member Posts: 4,272
    ^ I believe they get populated off the back of automated instruction scrapes from the Lego website.
  • HuwHuw Brickset Towers, Hampshire, UKAdministrator Posts: 6,440
    Correct. I guess they are designed 'just in case' a promotional partner has a use for them but not manufactured until they do.

    BTW, i'm not sure if this goes here or not, but i've noticed a number of sets have missing / incomplete information. I consider myself a bit of a perfectionist, and i would love to have all these fields filled out. If i have information to add to a set, how do i do that, or who do i contact about this?
  • HuwHuw Brickset Towers, Hampshire, UKAdministrator Posts: 6,440
    You can post it here and one of the db admins will add it.

    Thanks.
  • atkinsaratkinsar Member Posts: 4,272
    ^^ absolutely, let us have it here and I'll get it added as soon as I can.

    7796 looks very cute! (but then, I do love making little buildings)
  • CCCCCC UKMember Posts: 17,790
    Isn't the piece count down to the fact that a minifigure is normally supplied as 4 pieces (head, hat/hair, torso assembly and legs). Some people count that as 0, some as 1, some as 4. Of course, you could pull off hands and arms and make it 8. And another two for the legs.
  • paul_mertonpaul_merton UKMember Posts: 2,951
    ^ It looks like the convention is to count that as 4. For example, the part count on the bag for the TC-14 minifig is 3 (it doesn't have a hat/hair).
  • atkinsaratkinsar Member Posts: 4,272
    ^ yep, that's the convention we use.
  • CCCCCC UKMember Posts: 17,790
    ^ and ^^ Yeah, that is the Lego convention for polybags.

    Bricklink do the opposite - 30160 has 35 pieces plus 1 minifig, the extra five pieces are obviously four for batman and headgear and one more for his cape.

    There is also the same discrepancy for regular sets - eg. 5882 Dino attack, Lego list on their website as 80 pieces. Whereas bricklink list this as 76 pieces + 1 minifig, and brickset as 80 pieces / 1 minifig.

    ^ I assume Bricklink's decision to treat a minifigure as a separate unit was made to make it easier to trade individual minifigs and still have them show up in the set inventory that way. If the minifig was broken down into its pieces in the bricklink set inventories, they would need a redundant, separate data structure to identify what minifigs are in what set. Etc. etc.
    Note that Bricklink also treats minifig torsos as separate units that can have sub-inventories, etc.

    A slight correction - torsos are single pieces, torso assemblies can have sub inventories.

    7872 is described as "Animal Set". What kind of animal is it meant to be? Is it just a generic angry dog, or some prehistoric creature?

    It's a lion.

    Oh! Thanks - I never would have guessed that.
