I'll sort it if so.
At least with those wings of fire I originally asked for :)
Either way one set or the other could do with being changed so there's some constancy to the approach.
I asked if #8088 ARC-170 Starfighter is this really a clone wars set in the star wars topic and the feeling was it was a episode 3 set.
The minifigs have normal eyes, R4-P44 is from episode 3, Captain Jag is from episode 3 and nether were in clone wars.
@Shib - You make a good point about the Doctor Who minifigures. At the moment we cannot edit minifigure tags very easily but I think it is on @Huw's to do list!
Yeah that's the odd thing Lego were the ones that called it a Clone War set, luckily the eyes give it away.
Thanks @Huw @CapnRex101 for the updated tag now I don't own any Clone Wars sets again.
Not sure if it is proper or not but having the abbreviation 'Dr.' somehow included in the tags would be helpful in finding this set as well. As it is, spelling out 'Doctor' is the only way to get it included in search results.
I had been thinking about a way to categorize Lego sets of the past again after seeing the new for 2016 set #60117 - Van & Caravan
and how similar it was to a set I had as a child:
1988's #6590 Vacation Camper
Further research also turned up:
1984's #6694 - Car with Camper
1975's #379 - Car and Caravan
1970's #623 - White Car and Camper
There are way more examples of this I couldn't find right away. There also even more in Friends and Duplo, etc! I would propose the tag for these would be "camper trailer."
In short, we need tags that are more specific to capture the exact rehashes in one spot. I would be willing to help. There is a list I've been working on.
2012's #4435 Car and Caravan
1974's #656 Car and Caravan
2010's #5655 Caravan
2014's #41034 Summer Caravan
1985's #3641 Car and Camper
But then again, there no rule against having two tags, is there? It could be "camper" and "caravan" so that anyone can search for it easily enough.
Apparently what I'd call a caravan is often called a Travel trailer (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Travel_trailer) which is a term I've never heard before.
But as @Bumblepants said, it's probably worth having both just because people from different dialects will be searching for it.
70751, 10193, 10223 all need the D2C tag,
Also not sure about Pirates of the Caribbean, 4181 has 'On Stranger Tides' as its Subtheme and Tag but I think its from the first film.
The clone also has normal eyes.
"Combine with 75035 Kashyyyk Troopers™ and 75036 Utapau Troopers™ battle packs for even bigger battles"
So looks like you are right good spot.
But just to check @CapnRex101
Although it looks like its been updated ;)
Looking at the "Bathroom" tag, it seems to be a little vague all things considered—lumping together sets into one tag even when a set contains just a shower, just a toilet, or even just a sink! Perhaps distinct tags for things like "toilet" and "shower" would be beneficial for the sorts of edge cases where the term "bathroom" might be considered a bit generous.
(and maybe also: Hotdog bun)
Can they be merged?
If not, can it be added to the drop down menu next to the search box - i believe it was there in the past.
Nor does it cover the number of OTHER current set tags that would become useless if LEGO ends up introducing minifigures of established Disney, DC, or Marvel characters with names such as Owl, Chameleon, Stingray, Unicorn, Sensor, Turtle, Angel, etc.
I don't have a solution at the moment but I agree that one is needed.
I've taken the liberty of making you a tag contributor so you should see some links to add them in the set listings. Please go ahead and add any that you find are missing.
