Greetings,

The collector run database, hobbyDB now has a growing assemblage of sixth scale figures and related paraphernalia.

To begin with, here are some brands that already have a fairly comprehensive sixth scale collections at hobbyDB:
(...And more to come.)

I'll offer to be your curator inasmuch as I've been building up the collections as a volunteer contributor, with the intention of constructing ...a tool, a facility, a collage, for collectors and enthusiasts. A site where you can organize your collection, or wish list; estimate its value; and perhaps flaunt it a bit.

If you have suggestions for, or find errors/fault in the database, please let me know. This work is very much in progress.

All questions are welcomed. Now, please go and see what it's all about.

Sasudio

P.S. I think I'll be piling my updates round about here.

Greetings again,

Regarding site navigation.

Firstly, arriving to the site for the first time, when clicking on the field at the top of the page stating ”Search or go to...”, you'll be given the option to search four different sections of the database. These are "Database Items", "Subjects", "Marketplace", and "Members". I'll encourage you to examine them all, and consult the Help section to find out more, but will now be concentrating on the ”Items” section.

Next, when you search for a keyword or simply click on the drop-down option of ”Database Items”, the search will return you a list of items. Choosing the ”Database Items”, your list is the latest items submitted to the database and when using a keyword(s), you'll be given a list of items with that word in their data content. Be careful with the keyword spelling, as the search is not very forgiving with typos, suffixes, and such at the moment. It'll try and find exact words and phrases in the Item data.

On the left side of the list page there is a column of Filters. This is a power tool to refine your search. For example if your keywords were ”Iron Man”, you'll return an abundance of Items to the list, as you can imagine. But if you refine the search with Filters like Brand: ”Hot Toys”, or Scale: ”1/6”, you'll soon find what you're looking for. At the bottom of the Filters column there is a list of Types of items, if you want a rough selection of Items of certain type.

Using the search and the Filters will become more important as hobbyDB reaches its first goal of 100 billion collectibles ;).

Note that there is also a sorting tool on the top right corner of the list that'll give you options to sort the listed items below. Here you have a nice selection of useful options to find out, for example, what Item is the oldest or how many hobbyDB users own it. But be mindful that using this tool right now, seems to lose some entries from the list. This is a known bug, which will be sorted out eventually.

Conclusion: Learn to Search, and Bob's your uncle.

To help a selection of fandoms, I've made some overarching List Subjects. These work nicely in cases where the Items are spread along multiple Brands or Series', for example, or where the related Subjects are more complicated to do a simple search on. Here you go:
Hopefully this helps you to find your stuff. :)

Update: We now have a subject Sideshow, along with the already long existing subject Sideshow Collectibles. This is to separate the roles of a distributor and a designer/manufacturer, as the subject Sideshow Collectibles previously returned a fairly long and confusing list.

Update: I've added a secondary "Reference #" to Hot Toys items in those cases where it is beneficial for the search. Meaning that if you search the database using the Hot Toys reference numbers, it now allows you to use alternate legit options (as hobbyDB search is kind of strict). For example:

- For 2014 Iron Patriot Diecast figure, you can use reference numbers "MMS195D01" and "MMS195" and return the correct item
- For 2018 Arkham Knight figure, you can use reference numbers "VGM028" and "VGM28" and return the correct item
