I have few minifigs. How can I identify them easily?
Well, I know many of them, but the isse is to sort them and then add them to
my store.

Thanks for your time

Beautiful collection

My way to sort minifigs is:
1. I put them all on 32x32 baseplates So I can see their fronts.
2. Sort them by theme when the theme is obvious for me.
3. I look at BL on themes to try to organize those that
I'm not sure or I don't know.
4. Those that I am not able identify I look for the specific color
of torso i Market-Search

5. Finally I can look at them individually

Amazing! We must be twinsies because that is precisely how I sort mine too. Only
exception is I use 16x32 baseplates that fit on my narrow desk.

I immediately see Space, Town, and Pirates, so I would recommend starting by
sorting all heads, torsos, headgear, and accessories/body wear into those respective
categories (Standard Grin heads and plain legs can go into a communal pile, as
all three themes use them).
As far as assembling Minifigs for sale, Space would be the easiest place to start,
since those Minifigs have standardised appearances (as opposed to the (largely)
mixed-and-matched style of the other two themes).

wow wow wow what a pile of fun.


Honestly I just rely on what I know. Sort things by what I can identify/whats
the same, and leave the "what is this?" pile for the end.
