We’re always looking for ways to improve estimated values on Pop Price Guide and recently added eBay Best Offers, 7 Bucks a Pop Prices and Pristine Auction Results. So we’re thrilled to announce some exciting news when it comes to price points.
Big Ticket Task Force
We do our best when it comes to documenting price points for rare Funko items. We’re talking about older, hard-to-find items with limited editions ranging from 1 to 108.
The rarity of these sales, coupled with the fact that most of these big transactions are done in private, can lead to an out-of-date estimated value. So we’ve created a group designed to examine and authenticate the sales of more than $1,000.
One way to accomplish this is by direct contact with known buyers and sellers for confirmation. From there it’s a matter of authenticating available videos, photos or news articles. And we share what we learn on the Price Point:
And you can dive deeper for full transparency:
In fact, we’ve already done our first two with Golden Ticket Willy Wonka and Silver Batman. For that super rare Golden Ticket 2-Pack we had absolutely no Price Points and now we have one that is four years old – so while the Estimated Value is not today’s (we believe it is still significantly undervalued) it is better now and we have just started with this!
If you have a Price Point you want us to consider reaching out! You can find more details about this program here.
Mercari Price Points Now on PPG
After having been alerted by Jassy in an interview (you can find it here) that Mercari now has URLs that can be checked, we wasted no time to start adding Mercari sales to items in the PPG database. Here is an example of an item that already features some:
That makes 39 and we are not done yet!
This is a work in progress but those two mean we now have the ability to add 39 DIFFERENT types of Price Points (see an overview here)!
We’ll be continuing to improve the process and ironing out any bugs that might arise. If you see anything that looks out of line or have any questions, we encourage you to share them with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Better yet, bring that expertise to the Squad where you can help us add Mercari price points, as well as items, UPC codes and more. Help us out and well dress up your PPG Showcase with some cool exclusive badges. Message us and we’ll get you started.

I think they should reconsider the 1 to 108 criteria. There are a lot of pops that are hard to fine and are older , that collectors aren’t going to sell. I think it should be 1 to 480 piece count. Funko is mostly doing 1,000 to 5,000 piece counts for most conventions. The 480 and below piece count days are over and they’ll be just as hard to fine as others. I have some they’re only going to sell once a year, if at all. With recent popularity and new management I don’t think we’ll see the 3 digit convention exclusives anymore. I put the 999 as a 1k.
We are always open to change but have to start somewhere. More folks joining the Squad means we can do more faster… 😉
Thanks for the update, I’ve since applied to become a Contributor myself.
