So, as I've gone through and started making the LEGO subtheme pages, I've come to realize that I greatly overestimated the complexity/number of LEGO sets out there. The original proposal for including LEGO sets in sources section was to only cite them by subtheme, as otherwise it would result in a large number of entries in the sources list—but that doesn't stop us from listing large numbers of cards and toys in sources lists already. So, I'm suggesting that we rewrite the last sentence to:
Toy lines should be listed in the Sources list using their respective citation templates, with each toy or set listed as a separate entry.
To do so, I've developed a LEGO template that takes three parameters — the subtheme, number, and name. Basically, we'll treat LEGO sets the same as trading cards and action figures.
What about the sources for Luke or Anakin? Won't this just over crowd the already massive sourcelist? Anakin and Luke appear in a lot of sets. 501stdogma(talk) 00:08, March 2, 2014 (UTC)
The size of the source list should never be a reason why we wouldn't include something. We already include trading cards and toy sets in source lists, which don't necessarily all introduce canon information either. CadeCalrayn 04:05, March 2, 2014 (UTC)
Would it be possible to source the Lego sets like we source TCSWE? We could use the big overall groups of sets in the Source list, while any potential new material could be reffed with the actual set as you are doing above. 501stdogma(talk) 15:43, March 2, 2014 (UTC)
No, because that's exactly the opposite of what we do with other toy lines. There's no reason to treat LEGOs any differently; the size of the article should never be a factor in whether or not it should list all of its sources and info. CadeCalrayn 16:48, March 2, 2014 (UTC)
