If you have a bunch of minifig parts you want to identify, the mini-fig-ure-outer can help. If you're looking for a design that you have in mind for your MOC, this tool can reduce the time you may spend searching for that just-right torso or head.
This tool tags the BrickLink database and returns results on the BrickLink web site. Hitting the "find" button on a search page will open a BrickLink results page in a new window.
This is a work in progress. If you'd like a pattern attribute added to one of the pages, use the contact form to request.
