Bricklinking a Set

To part out a set, go to Want > Part out, and input the set number or choose it by selecting Choose set. A number of options are available here such as including minifigures and instructions, as well as adding the parts to an existing or new wanted list. It is recommended to make sure the checkbox Match Min Wanted Qty with Quantity found in Item it checked so that the required quantity will be added to the parts. Default remarks will set that remark for each item — this is particularly useful if you want to add the parts to a list which already has parts in it. Choose Submit for Edit to move onto the next step.
