These designations are meaningless to most people unless you're actually keeping track of the category or series. Like a Completist would need to, in order to delineate what counts and where. Hence why it would be important to myself personally as to whether or not the variant is indeed given an shxxx number or not.
An example in the other direction are the SDCC Superhero figs being given proper shxxx numbers. If you want to say that you are 'complete' on that range, then you definitely need to own the SDCC series. A bane to any completist's ambition.
All in all, "completionist" or not, there's no rule that a "complete collection" can only ever be defined in terms of BrickLink labels or categories. As long as you clearly define what it's a complete collection OF, and you have every figure that meets that definition, you can truthfully call it a complete collection!
I'm not saying the ID numbers used by BrickLink shouldn't matter at all, to anyone, ever. If that's how you choose to define your collection, more power to you, and I wish you the best of luck filling the gaps in your collection — I'm sure it's no easy task! But I think calling those ID numbers "especially important" is a bit of a stretch when @Drmnez was merely asking whether they were unique, not what theme or category they fall under.
Marvel- Steve Roger's Captain America
DC Comics- Atom
"This version of Captain America is the recently controversial Hydra agent version of the character. As for the Atom, it will be from Ray Palmer from the CW’s Arrow/Flash series and the Legends of Tomorrow series. This will be the second character featured from the Arrowverse as the Green Arrow was given away back in 2013."
I think the 2013 arrow was based off of new 52 not the cw show, 2015 Arsenal on the other hand was based on the cw show.
But really, BLAH! Captain boy scout is hardly better. Would be nice for some exciting characters. Fingers crossed that there will be better news to come.
Blame thebrickfan for their oversight!
PS. Anybody notice the chrome looking R2-D2 maybe a foreshadow to a future poly bag?
I have no doubt it will be a very long time before we see another chrome C-3PO.
Although being from the UK, I would probably vote to leave before the good stuff was handed around.
The Jay statue looks great, and it's good to get hints that Ninjago will be well represented at SDCC. It's noteworthy as the first SDCC teaser LEGO has officially released, so now we can probably expect a lot more news from them about what to expect in the weeks to come!
But the photos aren't coming out quick enough, and I cant wait!
?? What are you waiting for? 90% of 2016 is out there, what're you waiting for? The D2Cs?
There is only one ring to rule them all...
I am waiting on the enchilada, the fully loaded baked potato, the end all, the exclusive minifigs
Though I'm not too keen on the 2 rumored choices of Atom and New Cap. America. I'm hoping it turns out to be false, mostly on Cap as his new costume isn't all that great.
i guess we'll just have to wait and find out :(
I'm hoping there isn't GotG Vol. 2 exclusive. (I suppose I'll have to fret until next year's SDCC.)
Reckon i'll be in luck.
With a white rangefinder!
