I don't know how much workk this may be, but I happen to keep my figures organized by the wave that they came out in. Is there any way to get the yearly checklists (2003, 2004) so that they are sorted by wave?

I do enjoy the other style checklist, but I think those only make sense when figures were available for an entire year ot two. Since the current figures are usually only around for a few months, I would think this style *might* work a bit better.

That's all.

Actually, your not wierd at all. I do exactly the same thing. I use and use the cardback visible on this site for reference.

I had done a wave by wave listing a few years ago in the year in review feature, and got ZERO feedback on it, so figured it was a waste of my time the next year.

Currently we have no plans to list them by wave.

the problem is now, vs. then, that there are so many waves even in a year that I have no idea what wave is what or who is in a wave. If someone lists a wave, I haven't a clue which version they are talking about. There are several figures that are released 2-3x a year at least and sometimes more with TARGET/TRU/WHOEVER exclusives. I think the newer stuff would benefit from a wave listing, even if still broadly catagorized by year.

One problem that I can immediately think of with the wave listing idea is what to do about the carry over packs? Do you just keep listing them over and over again even though they're the same figures? You'd have to sort every vehicle and vehicle driver by wave too if you did that.

And then going back and resorting the current archive listings by waves seems like a needless hassle for the staff, IMO.
