FyndIt’s Mean, Green TMNT Contest Week 4 Finalist!

Congratulations to BigFatMama5 for qualifying as the Week 4 finalist in FyndIt’s Mean, Green TMNT Contest!

Her Want for a Kellog’s Star Fox Video Game Watch from the 1990’s scored the most points during the last week of FyndIt’s TMNT contest. FyndIt is a service that helps people locate hard-to-find collectibles. BigFatMama5 posted her Want in hopes that someone can help her track down a very special Star Fox watch that was only redeemable through Kellog’s cereal company with two proofs of purchase and a small fee for shipping and handling. There are several Star Fox watches from the 1990’s that are listed on eBay, but these watches were released by Nelsonic after the Kellog’s promotion and they have a different button interface. If you know where to locate a working Kellog’s Star Fox watch from the 1990’s online or in a store, help BigFatMama5 rescue her most prized possession from her long lost childhood! Click here to post your Find and if it’s the watch she’s looking for, you could earn a nice bounty reward for your efforts!

HOW TO ENTER THE CONTEST

1. Read the official contest rules and click Accept.
2. Register a username and create a password.
3. Verify your email so we know that you’re not an evil overlord or mutated animal.
4. Post an interesting Want or Find to enter the contest.

What exactly is FyndIt you ask? We are a community of collectors that help each other find great stuff like comics, memorabilia, toys – you name it! FyndIt members known as Wanters post a WANT – a hard-to-find collectible they’re looking for and offer a bounty reward to whoever can help them locate their item. Finders go out and search for the item online or in a store and post their found item as a FIND. If the Wanter accepts the Find as a match, then the Finder earns some money for their efforts and the location of the item is revealed to the Wanter. The Finder is stoked because they just made money off of helping someone find collectibles, and the Wanter is excited because they were finally able to track down that item they’ve had trouble searching for. It’s a win-win situation!

Now that you have a better understanding of what a Want and a Find are, here’s some information on how your contest entry will be judged should you choose to accept the mission. There will be a total of 100 points possible for each Want or Find. Judges will consider the following criteria for the scores:

COMPLETE (15 Points): How complete is the Want or Find? Make sure to include a clear photo, helpful description,choose a category for your item, list the price and set the bounty reward if it is a Want.

MEANINGFUL TITLE (15 Points): Does your post include a meaningful title? For example, “Comic” is not an especially helpful title. “Eastman and Laird’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1 CGC Near Mint” is a very helpful title. The more meaningful your title is, the higher your entry will score.

AWESOME DESCRIPTION (55 Points): Describe what the item is and what era it comes from. Make sure to include the condition of the item. If you’re posting a Want, it is good to give a back story on the item you are looking for and an explanation of why you want it. If you are posting a Find, you’ll need to describe the item in detail and convince the Wanter that your Find is the best match. The more helpful and interesting your description is, the higher your entry score will be.

UNIQUE OR DIFFICULT TO FIND (15 Points): Is your Want or Find something which could be considered hard for someone to locate? A greater difficulty in locating the Want or Find will result in a higher score.

WHEN TO ENTER

FyndIt’s Mean, Green Contest will run from July 20, 2014 at midnight Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) to August 16th, 2014 at 11:59 pm PDT. There will be four entry weeks July 20-26, July 27 – August 2,  August 3-9 and August 10-16. You can enter as many times as you wish during the Entry Period, but only one entry per day. If you make more than one entry in a given day, only the first entry will be accepted.

We will select the most interesting Want or Find submitted during the Entry Week as the Weekly Finalists.  Weekly Finalists will qualify to receive the Grand Prize. The Grand Prize winner will be announced after August 19th.

Check out the Contest FAQs and tips for posting a Winning Want and a Winning Find.

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.
