McDonald’s Adult Happy Meal Toys

McDonalds is appealing to our inner child with the release of its limited edition Adult Happy Meals with, of course, a coveted toy inside. For the month of October, McDonalds is offering one of our favorite fast food treats, only in an adult version. But it doesn’t end with nostalgia and perhaps some indigestion. In some cases, the figures have listed for as much as $300K on eBay. Read about the phenomenon and see them on hobbyDB by clicking here.


Collector’s Showcase: Swdaddy

If there’s a Spider-Man or Marvel Funko Pop! figure to be had, Scott Brown, aka Swdaddy, is sure to ensnare it for his collection. Scott, a hobbyDB Squad Member, Curator and Facebook Admin, shows off his impressive collection as part of our latest Collector Showcase. See it here! Would you like to see your collection featured?
