I think each of the 6 releases bear adding as individual issues, as they are appearing on the market separated from the Six Pack. Either we have separate entries for each of the 6 items (noting they are taken from the Six Pack) or we end up with dealers selling the "six pack" but noting in the description that they only have item "x" and not all six which is even more confusing. My vote is not to merge.
