Round 4 of Crowdfunding Now Open! Own a Piece of hobbyDB!


Whether you collect what you love or simply love to collect, there will always be a place at hobbyDB for you to call your collectibles home.

Fostering a vibrant community of collectors has always been a primary goal of ours ever since we embarked on our mission to document 100 billion collectibles… eventually.

We’re able to do this because hobbyDB is built and owned by passionate collectors such as yourself.

hobbyDB Crowdfunding

We’re happy to announce the opening of our latest round of hobbyDB Crowdfunding and your opportunity to own a piece of the site that your support helped to create.

Investing in hobbyDB Crowdfunding is not a donation, it is buying you shares in the company that owns and operates hobbyDB. Your investment via the “Kickstarter-for-equity” platform helps us to fund new and existing features on the site and lots more.

The best part? As an owner, when we do well, so will you.

Check out our new and improved Wefunder profile and video that reflects our progress over the last year!

Join the Collectible Revolution!

By investing in hobbyDB, you’ll join more than 1,200 fellow shareholders ranging from collectors such as yourself to industry leaders from Disney, Hot Wheels and Collectors Universe, to name a few.

Crowdfunding Helps Us Soar to New Heights

Crowdfunding works. Besides always wanting to ensure our community can own a piece of a site that they love, our previous campaign enabled us to –

  • Zoom past 200,000 App downloads, gaining an impressive 4.8 rating with iOS users
  • Grow our monthly contribution margin from Funko by 68% YOY (now at $420,000 annual)
  • Partner with multiple Industry Veterans to introduce new services to the community such as Collectible Grading with PSA & Exclusive Products from Hot Wheels Legend Larry Wood (with more coming soon!)
  • Launch new ways for our community to make money such as bulk collection selling and a Shopify App (coming this quarter)
  • Surpass 580,000 community members, whose collections are worth more than $5.7 Billion (all potential inventory)
  • Add more than 35,000 more Hot Wheels listings to the hobbyDB Marketplace with the addition of The Toy Peddler Community.



Coming Soon to hobbyDB

That’s just the beginning. We have lots of new features and upgrades planned for 2023 and beyond, including –

Value and Manage your Graded/Autographed Items

This is particularly good news for our Funko fanatics out there as we begin the process of creating the ability to add Graded items, such as Pop!s, to your collection. Click here to read more regarding our recent partnership with the grading company PSA. We plan to add estimated values of graded items so you can see the differences in price if there is one.

hobbyDB App

We’ll be upgrading the hobbyDB App in an effort to make it the No. 1 App among collectors. Keep an eye out for usability upgrades and Image Matching Software arriving on the App later this year.



New Marketplace Experience

Get ready to shop until you drop. We’re beefing up with brand new features – including Auctions and a Shopify App – designed to make the hobbyDB Marketplace THE shopping destination for all things collectible.

Data! Data! Data!

We’ll be adding thousands of new items from your favorite brands and franchises, while supercharging the guide with new and more price points. See how you can help by joining more than 2,000 members as part of the hobbyDB Squad.

Invest Today!

It’s been our dream since Day One to afford our members and the community a chance to benefit from owning a part of the resource that they helped to build. So when crowdfunding became available, we knew that it was the right choice for our community.

Once again, we’re opening our doors to collectors worldwide and giving you the opportunity to own a piece of hobbyDB and its family of brands – including Pop Price Guide and The Toy Peddler.

It used to be that investing in awesome projects and great teams making cool things (and potentially lots of $$$) was just for the top 1 percent investors. But now, thanks to the JOBS Act, EVERYONE gets the opportunity to own a piece of something great that they love! Equity crowdfunding basically allows anyone to easily invest in early-stage pre-IPO companies that they believe will do great things!

By uniting fans of all kinds, we’ll be able to shape the future of collecting and create a resource that we all love to use. As hobbyDB grows, so does our power!

The collectibles industry annually generates roughly $500 billion in revenue. And now here’s your chance to get a foot in the door!

Are you ready to become a hobbyDB owner? Follow the button below for complete details about the campaign, including how you can easily invest today for as little as $100.


We’re here to answer any questions. Message us at and we’ll do our best to address any questions or concerns.

Thank you for believing in us!

When you invest in hobbyDB, you are buying actual shares of the company that you believe in. As we move forward, the overall goal is to become the epi-center of the collectible world and when possible, pay dividends to our shareholders, pro-rata to your ownership percentage of the company. Also, there is always the possibility of floating on a stock exchange or being acquired, where you would receive pro-rata payment of the sales price.
