In general, 19727* have been classed as modified plates, while 24008* have been
classed as body parts. Obviously they are different molds but it seems like
they should at least be in the same category.

Good point, maybe Plate,Modified,Decorated is best, since this also is a Plate,Modified
and not a bodypart:

Cool, already fixed! thanks, Maggie! I wish the people who actually run the
site were as responsive and on-the-ball as the people who volunteer their time
maintaining the catalog.

In general, 19727* have been classed as modified plates, while 24008* have been
classed as body parts. Obviously they are different molds but it seems like
they should at least be in the same category.

I see that this multi-category issue is still in place. It tripped me up recently
when I was trying to identify a particular head piece in a batch of used bricks,
as I couldn't read the full mold number and am also not versed in Minecraft
references. While I did find it eventually, this situation seems to me unnecessarily
confusing. Two of the part numbers, 35525 and 35528, are a mere three-count
apart from each other and yet fall in separate categories. Also, how exactly
is a 19727 categorically different from a 21098?

If all Minecraft animals are considered to be in the "Animals" category, and
all of their printed head pieces are nearly identical in form and function by
typical Lego part classification, then it seems to me to follow that all the
printed head pieces should lie in the "Animal, Body Part" category. Their usage,
as a stand-alone part outside of that category, would be limited.
