So helpful being able to add them to my collection so easily. Values are so much better, and more accurate. Also, how do you see the total value for all of your figures in your collection? Thanks!

Sorry for the delay in responding. Have you found the area in your showcase with the total value?

Great Idea but could be better

Please add a Box to identify those with Errors. Please allow user to add an image and information to items not found. Having to Stroll for an item takes a long time only to find the item not listed or different. Would be nice if while typing in the Search box if named Item would be come up if in the Database. Would be nice if my Collection would be listed by name, Number, Series even Year introduced. Tho may take several pages to accomplish for each category. I am new to the Site so still learning how to locate Items, and a faster way. I have spent several days so far building my inventory and at this rate could take all year working it 10 - 12 hours a day. Just my 2 cents. Thanks for a great Idea, don’t know it there are others, I am here to stay just hope my suggestions are seen as credible.

Make the inventory Printable, With all the work I’m putting in God forbid that something happens to the site. I have heard nothing on my prior Suggestions.

These are great suggestions. Some of the answers are already at, but I'll add them here too: 1) You can click the red "flag" button to alert us of errors, 2) We have a training process to upgrade users like yourself so you can add and edit items. Our entire community is built on volunteers like yourself, 3) We would like to add autofill for search, and will eventually, but it takes a lot of CPU to accomplish, 4) you should be able to filter and sort your collection by name, number, series and year. Check our tutorial and help pages... or reach out to us directly. 5) We are always adding and improving on ways to search and browse the site... it's amazing how difficult it is to organize 1,000,000+ items! As always, thanks for your feedback. If you are interested in volunteering, let us know at and mention that I sent you (Zack).

Has the potential to be a very helpful and amazing app for collectors. Don’t fully understand we’re their estimated values come from but action figures I own that I know for certain sell consistently for $70 to $150 on eBay this app estimates at $20. I like how box and item condition can be added into the details section of each entry into your collection, but honestly think that it could be made much easier to add and remove items from your collection entries. The Funko app even though it does not have a database for things other than funko is a very seem-less type app that makes it super easier to manage your collection. I have removed this app from my phone for now because it is too time consuming to use but will definitely be watching for this app’s improvement, because it does have the potential to be very useful to collectors.

Hi! Thanks for the feedback. Our pricing data is entered by members and contributors from actual eBay sales and auction houses. The more data we get, the more accurate it is. We’ve just recently started adding pricing for action figures, which is why you may be seeing the differences…. Any interest in joining the squad? The more members we have, the more accurate our prices will become! Ask for me, Zack.
