Funko Funatics, the pet name for the collectable company’s legion of die-hard fans, can now track their collections and make wish lists through the new official Funko app.

Available for iOS and Android devices, the app is a relaunched and refreshed version of forerunner Stashpedia, a free collecting tracker app the Pop-maker acquired.

It gives collectors an all-in-one tool to catalogue their Pop Vinyls and other collectbales, make and display wish lists of their next purchases and must-haves, and browse a Funko catalogue of more than 17,000 items. Consumers can find product by filtering by product brand, characteristic, exclusives, licenses, release year and retailer and by scanning bar codes.

“We’re thrilled that Funko fans now have one place to track their collection,” says Funko’s Chief Marketing Officer Molly Hartney. “Throughout development, the team took customer and fan feedback to create an app experience with real-time information that Funko fans can access 24-7.”

Funko has also teamed up with Pop Price Guide, a third-party brand owned by hobbyDB that tracks current trending product values. Valuations are based on current sales activity, and are designed to give a guide on current market status, not a guarantee of value. The service is not associated directly with Funko.

The app is already a hit with Funatics, including Jason Grohoske, who says: “Being able to house all of your items in one place is awesome. Instead of going back and forth between multiple sites, it’s one touch for it all. Here’s an app that you can scan all the bar codes on the product and everything from Pop! to Dorbz to 5 Star to Rock Candy, it’s all there.”
