We here are Pop Price Guide always believed (and now know) that Graded Funko Pop! figures are a big part of the future of collecting, if you like them or not.
With the popularity of Graded figures clearly on the rise, now comes the task of adding them to Pop Price Guide in an easily manageable and efficient manner and this has become more urgent last week. Why? Meet the first Mint Gem 10 graded Ms. Marvel and what she did to our Estimated Value!
That was a 15x Lift! Is a 10 worth that, who knows? But should it change the EV to that extent? Cleary no!
We had to take action.
Phase One (launched today)
All Price Points for Funko Pop! figures graded 9 or 10 will be moved to a new “Holding Page” for now. Think of it as Quarantine…
So we are adding them but are not currently displaying them (we want the data for when we are ready). We will also review the Grades that get paused (for now we think 8 is the equivalent to our current Near Mint / Mint).
NOTE. 4 or 5 Estimated Values will change overnight as we move Price Points out.
Planned for the end of January we’ll create the ability to add the Grades of Price Points directly to the Database Item. Price Points 9 and above will show on the page but will not be calculated into its Estimated Value during this phase.
Towards the beginning of the spring in March or April, we’ll introduce the final stage.
Check out the Mockup –
Note that you’ll now find price tiers for Graded Pop!s, in addition to Ungraded Estimated Values for In Box and Loose figures, as well.
Give it a look and let us know what you think!
