FyndIt’s Classic X-Men Comic Contest – Week 4 Winner!

If you are a Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan, you will definitely want to check out the winning one-of-a-kind Find posted during week 4 of FyndIt’s Classic X-Men Comic Contest!

After three weeks of winning Wants, we were really hoping for a unique and rare Find to bring in the top score during week 4 of the X-Men contest. This week’s winning Find did not let us down! This is exactly the type of amazing Find that we encourage members to post to FyndIt, to give collectors the opportunity to discover some amazing hard-to-find memorabilia.

Congratulations to FyndIt member Nerdlyweds for submitting the winning Find, SCREEN USED Sweet Mask: Own a One-of-a-Kind Piece of BUFFY History from the Most Iconic Episode in the Series, “Once More, with Feeling”! for week four of FyndIt’s Classic X-Men Comic Contest.

Find: Buffy the Vampire Slayer Sweet Mask Prop

Description: Joss Whedon fans, rejoice! Especially if you’re a BUFFY fan! This screen used mask is the only known mask that was created for and used by Hinton Battle in his iconic role as Sweet, the musical demon who wreaks havoc in the fan-favorite BtVS episode, “Once More, With Feeling.” Sweet’s mask was not originally sold after the show was over, as Mr. Hinton Battle himself took it home with him after he finished filming his iconic song and dance numbers in “OMWF.” Eventually, however, lucky for us, the screen worn Sweet mask was sold along with a headshot of Hinton Battle (included)! Sweet’s mask now rests in a display case on a Styrofoam head (to help keep its shape) in a private collector’s mini-museum and is in excellent condition, considering this episode was filmed over ten years ago (feeling old yet?)!

If you are a serious Buffy the Vampire Slayer memorabilia collector, you don’t want to miss out on this one-of-a-kind item. It may never be available again! Click here to find out the location of this amazing piece of Buffy history.

Our week  4 winner has been entered for a chance to win FyndIt’s X-Men Comic Contest grand prize set of CGC near mint Uncanny X-Men comic books signed by the legendary comic artist Stan Lee. YOU have an opportunity to win the grand prize as well! Our contest continues through June 1st. Enter for your chance to win!

X-Men Comic Contest Top Wants – Week 1

There were a lot of great Want and Find entries posted for FyndIt’s Classic X-Men Comic Contest during week one of the contest! It’s so interesting to check out what kind of items Wanters are searching for and also discover the unique and cool items Finders have come across.

Wants are items posted to FyndIt by people who are having a hard time finding the item online or in stores for the condition and price that they want it in. Instead of having to proactively look for something, a Wanter can post an item to FyndIt and offer a small bounty reward for someone else to find it for them. So instead of just one person looking for a hard-to-find item, there is a whole community of people searching for it. FyndIt lets Wanters save time and money by enlisting the help of others.

Free Comic Book Day 2014 was held on May 3rd during the first week of our X-Men contest. One of the contest participants submitted a Want for a complete set of Free Comic Book Day Comics 2014. They are willing to pay a bounty reward of $5.00 to the Finder who can help connect them with a comic book lover who is willing to generously part with a complete set of FCBD2014 comics for the sake of helping some kids out by filling in their missing comics. If you know happen to be in the know of where you could locate this specific comic request, make sure to click on the Want link and post your Find.

Another great X-Men contest entry during the first week was a Want submitted for The Amazing Spider-Man GameStop variant comic in near mint condition. This exclusive Spidey variant cover can only be purchased through GameStop with PowerUp Rewards.  GameStop rewards are collected by purchasing items on their website.  You can’t buy the variant comic directly from GameStop with cash, you have to also apply your reward points. The print was also a limited  run of 6,000 copies. The FyndIt member would like to try and find a near mint copy for around $150.00. They are willing to pay a $20.00 bounty reward to whoever can find a copy for the price and condition specified.

With a nod to retro gaming systems, an X-Men contest participant submitted a Want for an original Nintendo Entertainment System Action Set. They are looking for a NES console in the original box in good working condition for around $75.00. A bounty reward of $10.00 has been offered to the person who can find this NES console for the condition and price specified. Know where to get retro gaming consoles for an affordable price?
