It’s always been our mission at Pop Price Guide to build the ultimate community and resource for Funko collectors.
The PPG guide is now home to more than 23,000 Funko items, as well as hundreds of thousands of price points. But we couldn’t have gotten this far without the dedication of you, the loyal Pop Price Guide users and contributors.
You are the Sheriff Woody to our Buzz Lightyear. The Marty McFly to our Doc Brown. The Thelma to our Louise.
It’s also been our vision to allow you, the PPG faithful, the opportunity to own a part of the community that you’ve helped to build.
So when crowdfunding initially became a possibility earlier this year, we knew it was the right thing to do for our community.
As a result, our first wave of crowdfunding was a resounding success and afforded us the ability to concentrate on improving and upgrading the site. It also netted us a few all-star volunteers and team members.
Over the past few months, we were able to create new features, such as the separation of your Showcase and Collection Management pages, detailed layers of subvariants and even the ability of adding non-Funko items to your collection, per hobbyDB, the engine that helps power PPG.
That’s in addition to many, many new features yet to come, including a revised form of infinite scrolling on your Showcase and Collection Management pages.
We’re only just beginning. And here’s how you can get involved.
We firmly believe that our community should always have an opportunity to own a piece of what they’ve helped to create. So we’re opening up a second round of crowdfunding.
It used to be that investing in awesome projects and innovative teams was reserved solely for the top 1% of investors. Now thanks to the JOBS Act, EVERYONE gets the opportunity to own a share of something great that they love!
Equity crowdfunding basically allows anyone to easily invest in early-stage pre-IPO companies that they believe will do great things. By uniting fans of all kinds, we’ll be able to shape the future of collecting and create a resource that we all love to use.
“I know it’s the best out there. It’s No. 1 for pricing Pops, etc. Once a mobile app comes it will be unstoppable.”
“Because I had a lot of success selling Funko POPS! and I believe the crew is awesome and very friendly/helpful. Also, I absolutely HATE eBay!!!”
“I thought hobbyDB was a great idea. There is the Funko application to track your collection, but hobbyDB was the only database that permits you to track all of your collectibles and gives in depth information, and can find collectibles to buy and sell. I believe that it has a great future in collectibles.”
When you invest in us, you are buying actual shares of the Pop Price Guide and hobbyDB. Our overall goal is to become the ultimate home for collectors and when possible, pay dividends to our shareholders.
There is also the opportunity of acquisition, where you would receive pro-rata payment of the sales price.
We want to ensure that if we do well, so do you.
You will have to act in a timely manner. The latest phase of the PPG Crowdfunding campaign will be much shorter than the initial round earlier this year.
