Today as I do every now and then I went to look at my 'Sets collection analysis' and was again impressed at how many graphs there were telling me all sorts of useful things about how many sets I have, in which theme and in which year. And again I was disappointed by the fact most of this data (except 'Value') was heavily skewed by collectible minifigures and to a lesser extent by polybags.
I would like to be able to have some control over what I consider a set to be or what type of set I want to analyse. It would be great to have a tick box so that we could choose which sets are included in both our sets owned total and also the analysis of these sets. The tick box could be as simple as “only include normal box sets” or it could allow the user to choose which types of sets to include:
*Other would include: books, magnets, baseplates, blister packs and so on (or you could give some of these their own tick box). There will always be a question over what constitutes a ‘normal’ box set, something like 70743 which is a Ninjago flyer, it comes in a box and was a normal retail set or 9574 which is almost the same thing but comes in a blister pack.
The point would be to draw a line and it wouldn’t really matter which side these sets fell into as being able to take CMFs and Polybags out of the total would make a big difference.
I understand this would involve a lot of work but I am sure there would be volunteers including myself that would be happy to help and I think it would be worth the time.
