So I have been working on an interactive 1:18 (and 1:16/1:20 if they "fit") action figure database.

The primary goal is to get a checklist up of all the lines of 1:18 figures since the early 90s. This will include a lot of lines that don't have as much backing as GI Joe, Star Wars, and Marvel.
Since I have no interest in any other scale those will all be omitted unless they willl work in a 1:18 scaled setup.
Records will only show up once the "Figure" record has been added.

Status of Archive as of 9/23/14 -
Figures: 2000 in 6500 to go (that I am currently tracking, more are always added)
Characters: 3308
Lines: 333
Categories: 265
Companies: 74
Species: 237

I have a local MS Access database that I have been using for the past couple years. I have recently purchased a domain and my wife is developing the back end of the search functionality. It is pretty rough looking at the moment but the search feature is working pretty good and I am transferring all the pictures I have over and building up the database.

The website is at 1:18 Archive

There are a couple ways to search for a figure. You can search by:
Character , in case you want to know how many Iron Man figures there are.
Category, This will display all figures assigned to a specific category such as Star Wars Jedi or Cobra. For now, I assigned each character to 1 category but hope to expand that to multiple categories in the future.
Line, This will show all figures in a specific Line.
Company This shows all figures by company that makes them.
Species This one displays a figures of a certain species. It is a little different though because a couple species I used was Playset and Vehicle so it you could also bring up all playsets, etc. (this search isn't working atm)

When you first go to the website 1:18 Archive
it doesn't look like much so type in the letter "a" and click search. This will show all figures with the letter "a" in their name. Then you can try "orc". That will give you an idea of how the search works.

If you want to see all the Characters, Lines, Categories, Companies, and Species there are buttons on the main search page that will let you see the contents of that table. There are also quick search links that you can click to preform a search.

Let me know what you think and if there is anything I could do to make it better to use. I am still working on adding "figure" records and have about 8000 more to add. Star Wars, GI Joe will not be done right away since there is already a bunch of resources for those lines.

Additional planned features:
I would like to do would be to have a Civilian option on each figure so with one click all civilian figures would display.
Clickable links on the search results that search for that specific item. For example if you search for Iron Man and see he is in the line Avengers Assemble line you can click on the line and that will display all the figures in that line.

Thanks and I would appreciate any input you may have.

I've tried to encompass almost every 1:18 scale line I could find. If you have any questions or see anything I am missing let me know and I can get them added. I have entered a little over 2000 figures so far and have about 6000 more to add. I'm hoping to get them all added by the end of Q1 2015. I have all of the Marvel figures added and will be doing DC figures next.
