From the to-do list:
https://www.bricklink.com/help.asp?helpID=2476

Add Sets Members Want - A project to discuss and possibly add pickable
models, in-store builds, and other similar sets to the catalog...
Project Review: This project traveled directly from under consideration to completed.
There were no existing guidelines discussing these kinds of sets, so no policy
changes were required. Instead, after administrative discussion, the majority
were in agreement to rescind the unwritten rule that prohibited addition of these
sets.
Date first added: December 6th, 2018
Date work began: June 13th, 2020
Goal for completion: July 1st, 2020
Date actually completed: June 17th, 2020
Suggested by: Many members


Maybe this is not so complete as catmins would like to believe it is as it appears
that none of those sets are in the catalogue at this time.
Also:
https://www.bricklink.com/message.asp?ID=1204676
seems to be voided now.

So perhaps this project should be set to under consideration again just so the
ball is not dropped and the technical issues, whatever those may be, can be addressed
before the goal date. I would dearly like to believe that BL will eventually
give members what they want.

Funny enough, I found a couple of sticker sheets for Superman the other day.

But it's a shame that I have used all the parts for something else now.

I'm still waiting to add an inventory for Batman and Robin and a few others.
My instructuons for that Batman and Robin model has unfortunatly gotten a bit
damaged, but the parts are still sealed in the container, thank goodness.

The technical issue involved changing building instructions from Gear to Sets,
but we're open for submissions of additional sets. So the project is complete.

So you want items like
 
Gear No: torque  Name: Toys R Us Exclusive Build: Rod 'Torque' Redline
* 
Torque Toys R Us Exclusive Build: Rod 'Torque' Redline
Gear: Building Event Instructions: Cars
Marked for Deletion
submitted as a set together with a request to delete the gear entry
and moving the sticker entry from gear to the set once approved? Can't associates
just add the sets anyway as the information is mostly there already? I'm
sure users will not mind doing the work, it just seems a bit like double work
for the same reward since some of the changes can only be made by associates
anyway.

Yes, if members want to submit these sets they can.

No, there's no need to worry about those. We can take care of them without
the need for any additional requests.
