The Most Collected & Most Wanted Collectibles of 2018

Remember the start of 2018? So bright and full of optimism. We were going to start exercising, call our mothers more, maybe not blow our whole paycheck on records (ahem). Well, not all of those happened. But to be fair, have your tried running? It’s terrible. We’ll stick with building databases.

New on the ‘Ogs databases this year:

  • The improved submission form makes adding a book to the database a breeze, as well as autosave in case you accidentally click out or close the window
  • Filtering and sorting on browse pages to narrow down the database on your interests
  • Better searching – get more info in the search bar dropdown, including images, so you click through to the right item
  • More granular settings so you have more choice over how you interact with the sites
  • Bookogs saw the introduction of Works pages, to group together all editions of a literary work
  • More artists and credits linked between the Discogs and Bookogs, Filmogs and Posterogs databases

A big thanks to everyone who’s contributed to the databases, given feedback and thoughts on the direction these sites should take, and anyone who’s taken the time to swing by and check it out. We appreciate your involvement!

We’re still not charging any seller fees at all on Gearogs, Comicogs, Bookogs, Filmogs and Posterogs! So if you have any of these ‘most wanted’ items, list them in the marketplace, make a quick buck, and pay no fees.

You have the power to influence this data. Start contributing to the biggest community-built databases for collectors.

Bookogs

Bookogs is still our biggest database, at just under 75,000 books cataloged. We started out the year at just over 39,000 and were hoping to double in 2018. We didn’t quite make it, but (at time of publishing) we’re pretty close – and there’s still a bit of time to get those numbers up.

While fiction has pulled ahead as our most cataloged genre, taking a look at our most collected and most wanted lists clearly show that it’s still all about the music. The only non-music books on either top 10 is Chuck Palahniuk‘s Fight Club.

Filmogs

Filmogs database has doubled in the past year, and is now at over 34,000 film releases on DVD, Blu-ray, VHS, LaserDisc, UMD, VCD and more.

This year has shown the problems with relying on the internet and streaming services for getting access to your favorite films and series versus the appeal of owning them on a physical format. From widespread panic at the very suggestion of ‘Friends’ being taken off Netflix, to the news that WarnerMedia’s classic film streaming service FilmStruck was closing down – it’s just death, taxes, and your DVD collection.

Comicogs

The Comicogs database has more than doubled in the past year, thanks to your amazing contributions. We ended 2017 with 16,454 comics in the database. This year we’ve had just under 18,000 more submissions – about 10,000 of those have been in the second part of the year – bringing the database total up to almost 35,000 comics, graphic novels, manga and more.

Marvel and DC are likely to always be the two most cataloged publishers in the database, but Panini ComicsAvatar Press and National Periodical Publications are also pretty popular in terms of submission volume.

And then there’s Image Comics. While they don’t have a huge number of items in the database, what they do have sure is popular. More than half of the items in our Most Collected and Most Wanted Comics of 2018 are Image comics. Our community can’t get enough.

Posterogs

Posterogs is our newest, but fast growing database. We started the year with just 41 posters, and we’ll be ending the year with well over 5,000. Turns out people who are into physical music formats are also pretty keen on gig posters.

Daft Punk does it again. At the mid-year point, they dominated the Most Collected list with half of the top 10 being Daft Punk posters. Now they’re closing out the year with 6 out of 10. Kiss‘s 1976 US tour poster makes a surprise entrance into the Most Collected and Most Wanted lists, and Cocteau Twins hold their position as Most Wanted to finish 2018 on top.

Gearogs

Gearogs database grew about 12% over the past year. That doesn’t seem like much when comparing to Bookogs or Comicogs, but considering there’s a hell of a lot less items of audio gear than there are books and comics, it’s still pretty good.

Not much has changed in the most collected and most wanted gear since the start of the year, which goes to show – these items of music and audio gear are firm favorites for a reason. The only differences we see between mid-year and now are a few place changes.
