Did some board parameters change that allow for longer listings? Because I don't recall the ProBuilder listing being one contiguous chunk. But I like it.

As a matter of fact, yes!

A little while back the powers-that-be increased the character limit from 5000 to 60,000. Quite an improvement!

Now that I took a quick glance at the Halo sets (since I can't be positive on info regarding other Mega Bloks sets), I found a mistake on set 97068 Versus: Snowbound Battlescape. It appears the pieces and figure count is mixed up; but if that's the case, there's actually only 3 figures in the set.

Also, nice work with all the sets you've listed. Must be extremely time consuming. You truly are a benevolent Hegemon...

Nice catch--thanks!

To be honest, it used to be a lot more labor intensive, but in the past few months I've finally gotten off my butt and put the whole thing into a database so I can crank out a pre-formatted listing without much trouble.

Of course, the raw data needs to be maintained, but at least I don't have to worry about manually adding table-formats and hyperlinks.

Thanks again!

The Halo listing is also missing the Covenant Cobalt Combat Unit. http://en.bricker.ru/osets/MEGABLOKS/97084/

The Bricker site is also dislexic on the numbering for the firebase, which would have been 96950 (try doing a parts replacement on the megabrands website for 96950). Some day when you're bored, the parts replacement form is a great way to find out the identity of other obsolete sets that never came into existance, like the 96854 UNSC Supply Pad, or 96851 Covenant Honour Guard Wraith.

Officially blacklisted from LOKA's tavern with the homely crossdressing barmaid. On a one-drink pass to LOKA's tavern.

Thanks for the tip--I know that I'm still missing a number of recent and forthcoming Halo sets. I only added the Siege Bike last night, in fact!

I'm not affiliated with Bricker, but forum member tkf runs the show over there and checks in here fairly often, so perhaps he'll see your comment.

I'm encouraged by the attentiveness of the Halo fanbase, because I know that people are scouring the net for info and are happy to share it here. I'm also heartened by the fact that Peeron (that excellent source for LEGO info) constantly expands and updates its info, meaning that this sort of thing is always destined to be a work in progress.


Thanks again!
