Top-10 Most Valuable Prototype Collectibles

Every collectible gets its start somewhere. Almost always that beginning takes the form of a prototype.

You’ll find more than 6,400 prototypes on hobbyDB ranging from Funko and Hot Wheels to Hard Rock Café and lots more. Due to their rarity, if you own one, you could be in luck. We decided to take a look at the most valuable among them.

Remember, estimated values tend to fluctuate, especially as we add more and more items and price points to ensure the guide’s accuracy. Also keep in mind that these are the values for items found solely on hobbyDB. Scroll below for more information on how you can help us build our prototypes database. Follow this link for a current list of the Most Valuable Prototypes on hobbyDB.
