INVENTORY YOUR COLLECTION ONLINE

Database Updates

Inventory Your Collection At Home Or Online!

The collection inventory software has been at a very stable version 2.10b for close to 2 years now. Last Fall we announced a new version 3 coming out "soon". Well, 9 months later version 3 is still at the 'almost finished' phase. It was put on hold while we developed a (much requested) online version!

Database Exceeds 57,00 Entries!

Database Updates

New Star Wars Products Avalanche

By the recent article count, it appears to be a lull in the Star Wars collecting world. Really it's anything BUT slow at the moment!

Hundreds (literally!) of Star Wars products are popping up worldwide and we're trying to get them all crammed into the database (accurately) day-by-day. The boxes just keep coming in and photography is backing up as well.

We've got several die-hard contributors who are sending in their own discoveries almost daily and we're working on backgrounds on those too.

The September 1st update will have close to 300 new photos since the previous update on the 15th. AND THERE'S MORE COMING.

Clone Wars Trading Card Checklist

Database Updates
  Clone Wars Trading Cards by Topps - Collect Them All!

If you remove the temptation to begin chasing the Artist Sketch Cards, there is still quite an impressive amount of cards (and coins!!) you have to track down to complete a set. Along with the 90 base cards there are 90 foil parallel cards (the base set of 90 which have had foil treatments added to them), 10 Animation Cel cards, 10 unique Foil cards, 5 Motion cards, and two promo cards. Target has their own unique add-ins... five 'red' animation cel cards, and ten 'red' coins!

UPDATE: Coin checklist now completed and exclusive Walmart coins added.

UPDATE #2: Exclusive Toys R Us coins and parallel foil card count added.

2005 - Wrapping Up A Very Busy Year

Database Updates
Happy Anniversary, Happy Birthday, and Happy New Year!

Happy Anniversary! (A little late...) StarWarsGuide.net took on it's current form on December 26th, 2002. Our 3rd anniversay was fantastic(!) having seen the final chapter in the Star Wars saga this year, and more new toys than Santa could pack into a single trip! It's been a wonderful trilogy of years, and we're looking forward to many, many more.

Happy Birthday to the Collector's Database! It was one year ago today that I wrote the first line of code for it. To celebrate the event and advance the features, the database has been completely re-coded from top to bottom! The Super Collector's Database version 2.00a is now available for download!

Star Wars Database Reaches 50,00 Entries

Database Updates


December Pushes Collectible Database Over 50,00 Entries

In April of 2005, the third edition of the Star Wars Super Collector's Wish Book hit the bookstore shelves with over 39,000 individual items listed. At the time of release, the Collector's Database had over 41,000 items in it, thanks in part to the Star Wars CCG cards being omitted from the book due to concerns of space and redundancy.

Database Update to 1.25a

Database Updates


Version 1.25a provides new features

  • 48,639 predefined items
  • 872 Categories
  • 1438 Manufacturers

    For the most part, from version 1.00a to 1.20d the database program for Star Wars collectors offered code optimizations, a couple of bug fixes, and experiments with routines that would lead to much more powerful options. With the brand new 1.25a, all of the new features are now available!

    Database Update

    Database UpdatesThis is just a quick note for Star Wars collectors who are using the downloadable database... Last night I started the programming for the "Create An Item" tab. Once completed, you will be able to add and edit your own items (fanmade, etc.) which don't otherwise appear in the 48,639 current entries. I'm hoping to have it completed for the August 15th update.

    MANDATORY DATABASE UPDATE

    Database Updates


    Super Collector's Database File Format Update

    I have been working with some collectors whose database are starting to reach upwards of 5,000 or more records. I program with a P4 3.2GHz with 1GB of RAM, so I haven't noticed the slow downs that other collectors have experienced. To help collectors whose PCs may not be as fast as mine, I have gone back and re-worked the file access routines for better optimization.

    April 2nd Added to Online Database

    Database UpdatesThe final count for April 2nd was over 300 new items... and over the past week it's gone up around another 50!

    I still haven't created the April 2nd Star Wars photo identification list for the website, but I did get all of the edited photos in place in the Online Database. Perhaps you should start a scavenger hunt and go looking to see what you can find! (Hint... make sure to look in Chairs, Bedding, Shirts, Air Fresheners, and Packaging!) All of the 300+ items that I found are pictured.

    The online database now has over 46,600 listings!

    Database Updates!

    Database UpdatesWith the addition of the first series of Wizards of the Coast miniatures, and the new Topps Heritage card set, the Collectible Database just broke the 45,000 entry marker!!

    Images from July 8th (last update) to present have brought the image count up to 3,900!
    eMail Article To a Friend View Printable Version

    Database Updates!

    Another milestone reached! Over 3,200 images are now available in the Collectible Database!

    It's a far cry from the 29,000 that will eventually end up there, but a whole lot more (and wider variety!) then most other sites have to offer.

    If you hear of something interesting in the newer diary entries (since March 04) you should be able to look it up in the database and see the full image in great detail!

    Collectible Database Re-Opens After 4 Years!



    It's back, and it's huge!

    In the year 2000 the original StarWarsGuide.net collectible database was taken offline because I had written a book using the data. Now that I've got two books out with a third on the way, I've decided to put the guide back online. Over 42,000 entries are available in checklist format. Currently you can only view by Category, but eventually I'll get the "View by Manufacturer" and "View by Contributor" working as well. Also, because I have to go through extra steps to protect my images, they'll be coming online slowly.

    Check it out today! Click on "COLLECTIBLE DATABASE" in the gold letters above!
