Non si capisce perchè siano stati inseriti i prezzi "nuovo" ed "usato" ed in base a che valutazione siano stati inseriti
The catalog is well done and very useful. Recommended to all collectors of minifigurine
It is not clear why the prices are pushed "new" and "used" and based on that assessment have been incorporated
All figures up to 2010 are included, so don't expect to see series 3, 4, and 5 of the collectible figures, as only the first two came out in 2010. Pictures are only of standard sized Lego figs, but do include quite a few non-minifig figures, eg giant trolls and brick built droids. But strangely enough not the oversized yeti/tygurah type creatures from Orient Expedition which are lot more figure-ish than, say, the ExoForce mini Venom Walker. You won't see any Duplo or Primo here.
The only beef I have is an inset showing the heads would be handy for helmeted/masked figs, so you could see the face print under, for example, Darth Vader's mask. Instead you need to check the head brick index at the back. And if I'm being really picky, taller figures, eg Woody from Toy Story or the mermaid end up heaving the very top of their heads cropped due to the standard sized picture frame employed. Still, gives you a good idea of scale though.
The author thoughtfully provides BrickLink codes to help you hunt down that elusive figure via the BrickLink trading website. He's also come up with his own somewhat lengthier taxonomy style code, eg nfi.par.par.1996.08 for a Paridisa female fig. Time will tell whether this is useful or not.
