I have a question. Do animals count against the "animal count" if they're used in architecture? IE: Gray parrots for statues counting against the total animal count. In that case, do minifigs used as statues count against the minifig count? And what about skeletons used in a "decorative" manner (like the ones in the Adventurer Desert sets where they were mostly part of the structure)?
Minifigs and skeletons definitely count, they're expensive to make. Parrots were supposed to be seperate from the animal count, but somewhere along the way, that was lost.
Check the first post. There are now specific seperate limits for parrots and a change to the decal rule as it concerns minifigs. It's only reasonable to expect that a new Pirates line will need new torsos and hopefully new heads, so go wild, they no longer count against you at all. Only time decals count is when used for other purposes (signs, etc).
