Product Name is the manufacturer's name for the figure, model or product.

In some cases, manufacturers use different names for the same product - for instance, a long form of the name in the catalog, and a shorter form on the product packaging. We use the long form when possible, but sometimes truncate names to fit in our database.

In a few cases, manufacturers give their products generic titles and expect the consumer to know what they are by reference to their product line - for instance, "Archers" in a Medieval French product line can be inferred to mean "Medieval French Archers." To make our listings clear, we sometimes add the product line to the product name for a listing.
