the more Friends parts I see appear on the PT,
the more I feel the desire to have the full figures available as Shortcuts
the same way as the Fabuland figures we already have.

If LEGO has unique IDs for the torso+arms and hips+legs assemblies,
we should also have these I as shortcuts I think.
This way an easy mapping is possible, and we do the same approach for physical color or alias shortcuts.
In fact, we use our library as a mapping system from LEGO IDs to our implementations.
In earlier days, there was a discussion, if a separate database should be used for that, and at that time,
the decision was made to use the existing LDRAW mechanisms to implement physical color or alias shortcuts.
I think we should reapply that decision here and add torso+arms shortcuts and hips+legs shortcuts for the friends
figures. And yes, we could do the same for minifigs in future, even when there are many such combinations.
But we need not to do that now I think, let's finish the Friends first...

...putting Philo's picture from this post http://forums.ldraw.org/read.php?17,13605,13605#msg-13605 here:...



to make a long story short: can we PLEASE have shortcuts for each of the Friends characters of the official sets?
