We’ve turned the keys to the ignition. The newly upgraded Pop Price Guide is ready to roll!
The process of supercharging the engines that power PPG is complete. It’s time to start enjoying the new features.
From our humble beginnings, we’ve added more than 10,000 items and 1.2 million prices in our quest to create the most complete Funko database.
Fueled by your support, we’ve built a community of collectors, fans and volunteers to keep us honest, current and on our toes every day. Our shared reward was a partnership with Funko to provide pricing for their app and content for their marketplace.
Due to some outdated technology, however, we’ve had trouble in the past implementing new features.
With these latest upgrades, that’s about to change, courtesy of hobbyDB’s technology, which will deliver the speed, features and reliability that PPG’ers have asked for.
Look for theses changes to be implemented over the next 24 hours.
Your new profile
If you had at least one item in your Collection or Want List, we automatically transitioned your profile into the new system that’s powered by our sister site, hobbyDB.
The only thing we ask of you, will be to reset the password on your profile (an important step to ensure we protect your privacy). Reset your password here.
If you already had an account with hobbyDB, we used that user name for your PPG profile. For those of you new to hobbyDB, your user name remains the same name as your Pop Price Guide account.
There were two exceptions, however. If your PPG username was already taken on hobbyDB by someone with a different email address, we added “_ppg” to the end of your username. The same goes for usernames that contained numbers only, which are not supported on hobbyDB.
We can always update your username for you if you’d like, just shoot us an email at [email protected].
So what’s new?
You’re going to want to peruse the most complete Funko database in the world, so we punched up search features (database, subjects, marketplace), as well as site speed.
Variants & subvariants
Time to dive deep into your fandom and fill out the missing pieces from your collection.
Through new varianting and subvarianting tools, you’ll be able to distinguish between flocked, chrome and all different versions of an item in one convenient location.
Wish List integration
Don’t miss out on that coveted vinyl figure again. We’ve got you covered with email and onsite notifications that alert you when an item on your Wish List has been posted for sale on the PPG Marketplace.
We’re charting new territory with the introduction of…well…charts! Our new price charts track the history of an item’s value and does so in a spiffy new fashion.
Selling made easier
We’ve made selling an item on the PPG Marketplace as simple as clicking a button. Now you can sell direct from your collection, making inventory management a breeze.
Show off your collection with personalized avatar and banner images. We’ve also upgraded our famous Top 10 lists to provide you ultimate bragging rights.
We’re expanding our already robust Funko database with even more images of items to help you get a better look.
Still to come in the future
Separate your Star Wars and your Marvel collection using our new customizable list feature. Here you’ll be able to create shareable lists tailored specifically to your collection.
Social media collecting
Find your friends and fellow PPGers with our new social tool that allows you to follow and get updates from their collections.
Even more data
If Pops!, Dorbz and anything else in the Funko universe are exclusively your thing, then Pop Price Guide is for you. For those of you whose passion for collecting extends beyond Funko, we suggest you visit hobbyDB to find everything from Hot Wheels and Hard Rock Cafe pins to trading cards, comic books and anything else fans collect. The best part? Your account works the same for both PPG and hobbyDB.
PPG & hobbyDB
Now that Pop Price Guide and hobbyDB are working alongside one another, making changes is faster and easier. Check out even more features to come here. Let us know what you’d like to see!
We’re very excited about the opportunity to provide the Pop Price Guide experience that we’ve always envisioned and that you deserve. Rest assured that despite the upgrade and supercharged engines, the PPG you know and love for its extensive catalog, price valuations and collection management tools will remain.
