Hey, I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to ask but I'm wondering how
I'd go about identifying lego figures? I've sorted through about 200
and I'm really struggling on this last 50 or so. Is there a method to it
or a place where you can request help with it?

Thank you

Surprisingly easy if you put the right arm, torso, and hand colors into the search.
Sometimes hands have been switched if you're trying to add from a random
bulk purchase so if you don't see what you're looking for, leave that
one blank.

This helps me a lot as well as goatleg. Click Market, then Search. On the more
common colors you'll get more results, but on colors less common like Lime
or any Azure this will make it easy. Once you find the matching torso just navigate
to what minifig(s) it appears on.

Make sure you set the category as shown or you'll get duplicates of the torso
alone and with arms.

I usually just imagine them naked. Works for me. You can see their "figures"
better.

I'm going trough similar problem, not only with the minifigures būt with
some bricks, plates and other Lego parts. But I can say that my recognition skills
are improving with each piece pick up and identify by using bricklinks search,
Google image search or any other option.
So main take away is that you need to expose yourself to as many knowledge you
can.
