1. I have "partial" toys for items that I can't properly select in the database. Example, I have Brainstorm's box, instructions and guns but no other items. It is impossible to add an item into your collection (or at least a box) if you do not own the figure. I have approximately 5 boxes without toys.
2. Will there be a time where pre-TFs are included into the database? I have a couple Diaclone and a Beetras toy obviously I can't add because those options do not exist. They do, however, use the same mold as other toys that are already existing in the database.
3. I saw another topic concerning bootlegs before and it didn't end up well. Personally, I consider bootlegs and "third part" toys to be in the same bunch. I do have some bootleg items that are noteworthy, but there is no option to add them into the database. Example here is MIB Kingdam Starscream, which is a Pre-TF (Diaclone) bootleg.
4. G1 package variations concerning Decoys. This is a tough subject concerning a database, with exception to the ones in the yellow cover. Sealed toys can have multiple different decoys with them. Even so, if a decoy is added separately, can they be associated with a specific toy? I haven't tried to add any decoys yet, since I haven't found them yet.
You should be able to, I think...just add the toy to your collection, set the condition to Opened/MIB and then deselect everything that you're missing, including the figure. True, it's not really MIB, but at least it'll show up in your collection.
I'm thinking that could skew the overall collection number. Would it be popular to represent that you have an item when you only have the box? While it would be fine for personal reasons, others can be picky about how things are counted.
I'm also thinking about particular pieces of a toy overall besides the box as well... Perhaps this conversation should be left for a future addition to the site, as it may not be particularly important right now, not even to me. Take these examples:Brainstorm: I have the box but no toy or anything else. Of course I need these other items.Powermaster Optimus Prime (Re-issue): I have the box and the foam, nothing elseJetfire G1 US: I have everything except the gun clip, armor peices and the armor foam.Blitzwing G1 Canada: I have everything except the cardboard backerSunstreaker G1: I have nothing except the plastic bubble
Also regarding this picture, is it a problem for me to upload the picture of the Canada Jetfire even tho the gun clip is not in the picture or would you rather pictures be complete even for rarer items like this?
Anyways, so I am thinking what if I have a picture of something that isn't on here, but isn't mine and may be potentially watermarked. Is there a way to disclaim that out so I can use them?
