You've likely seen the Inventory listings I've been posting for various Mega Bloks sets over the past weeks and months. I'm doing this both to provide information for people who might simply be curious, but I'd also like to compile as complete a list as possible of which pieces have appeared in which sets over the years. The long term goal is to enable easy tallying of the total number of appearances of a given piece in a given color.

It's a long process ultimately doomed to some degree of failure, owing to the fact that Mega Brands itself doesn't seem to follow a consistent pattern in counting its pieces, but also because many of the earlier bulk sets varied in both their color selections and piece-counts. But I hope to get as close as possible. With around 2,000 sets simply in the Micro scale, it remains a daunting prospect.

But I've reached a milestone by posting the 500th inventory listing! That comes to almost 23,500 individual line-entries in the overall database. Not a bad start, I think.

I've also finally implemented an improvement in the format for the set listings, which I've wanted to do for a long time. Compare the format of the Power Rangers listing to that of the ProBuilder. You'll see that the latter is differentiated by subtheme, while the former is not. In the coming days I'll edit all of the listings to follow the new, clearer format.

I hope that others find these listings useful, however incomplete or "in progress" they are. Thanks to everyone who has provided information to facilitate this ongoing project--I'll likely come begging for more info in the future!

Thanks for providing us with the inventories. A tedious job, to say the least.

Again, this is still the best resource online for this information...so honestly it's invaluable
