We reached a major milestone in October when we added the 500,000th item to the hobbyDB database.
But we weren’t done. Not even close. We are, after all, on a mission to add over one billion collectibles…eventually.
Since reaching the 500K mark we’ve added more than four thousand additional items with more arriving in the database by the hour.
And here’s where you can help. We’re always looking for experts to join the hobbyDB team as curators.
Our curators oversee the subject of their expertise, checking for accuracy, adding proper images and ensuring the overall quality.
The best part is, that with a half million items in the database, there are plenty of subjects and collectibles that could use the keen eye of a curator.
If this sounds like something that’s a good fit for you, or if you have any questions or concerns, let us know by sending a message to support@hobbyDB.com.
Here’s a look at some of our favorite new items recently added to the hobbyDB database…
Among the recent additions we’re most excited about, is our expanded collection of autographed items.
We asked and you answered with a convincing “yes” when it comes to adding signed items to the database. We started simple with recognized distributors such as 7 Bucks A Pop and ToyZilla, but are now entering the next phase, which will also include signed items for Hot Wheels and other brands. Read about it here.
Smurf villages are pretty big. So it makes sense that our Smurf database on hobbyDB is home to more than 900 items related to our little blue friends. A majority of those includes the popular hand-painted Schleich brand figures.
Cowabunga dudes! We’re looking for a curator to join Donatello, Leonardo, Michelangelo and Raphael (and hobbyDB). Check out the recent addition of Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Just like He-Man, do you have the power? Or the expertise regarding all things Masters of the Universe? The MOTU Eternia Minis can now be found in the hobbyDB database.
We’ve added more than 70 items to get our Mega Construx Heroes collection underway. Help us fill out the images by becoming our Mega Construx Heroes curator.
Our recently added Fortnite Battle Royale Collection is going to make you want to dance.
I saw recently that you guys added actual full size regular cars into the database, or at least I’m just now noticing that they are. Kinda pulling away from the rest of the pack with this don’t you think? Seems pretty ridiculous to me. What’s next, are you adding Houses soon too? Live Animals?
Cars are very collectible and were some of the first items we added (we also have Planes). We are not going to make a judgment on what people want to collect and it is collected and somebody is willing to add it to the database then we will not be in their way. Some things are tricky (cars, seashells, fossils and tribal artifacts for example) but our users and we will find ways of doing it (we get at least 10 feature requests every day, many of them duplicates but many also being excellent ideas – keep them coming).
