In the early 1990’s, Funskool produced a fully poseable superhero action figure that posed a striking resemblance to the most well-known comic superhero ever, Superman.
The action figure was made out of different G.I. Joe parts. Funskool, based in India, had the rights to create G.I. Joe figures, but they did not have the rights to mix and match G.I. Joe parts to create knock-off characters.
This bootleg Superman action figure is a sought after collectors item and is hard-to-find in good shape. One of our members posted this action figure as a Want on our our website in hopes that someone could help him locate one in good condition for an affordable price.
Lucky for our Superman collector friend, a Finder on FyndIt tracked one down in great condition for half the price!

There is a lot of Disney memorabilia out there available for purchase, but some items are harder to come by. A Disney collector posted a Want to FyndIt requesting help locating a complete box set of Disneykins in good condition for $85-$120. They offered a $4.00 bounty reward to anyone who could help them find their collectible Disney miniatures.
The Want was posted in mid-December and a Find was located and posted in the last week. Although it took a few weeks to make a match, the Disney collector was able to get help locating the item for the price they were willing to pay for it.

The Match of the Week for January 13th, is Sideshow Exclusive limited edition Rogue statue. A Want for the statue was posted to FyndIt requesting one in good condition with the original box for under $300. A bounty reward of $4 was offered to anyone who could help find it.
Someone of FyndIt saw the Want posting for the Rogue statue and knew where to locate it. They responded to the Want with a Find that included a picture, description and price point for the Wanter to review. The person who posted the Want saw that the Finder had located the limited edition statue for $25 cheaper than originally requested. This was a good deal for the Wanter and they accepted the match.
Upon accepting the match, the Wanter paid the Finder a bounty reward of $4 for the exchange of the statue’s location. The Wanter was able to walk away happy knowing where to find a good deal on Sideshow statue and the Finder earned a couple of bucks for helping a comic collector out.

Just in time for the holiday countdown, a Star Wars Santa Yoda Jedi Knight Christmas Advent calendar was posted to FyndIt and within the same day one of our Finders located the item and the Wanter happily accepted the match.
Another happy customer included FyndIt member Scooter, who accepted a Find for a 1965 classic Batman and Robin board game manufactured by Hasbro. The character depictions were fashioned off of the 1960’s Batman TV series.
Someone’s kitchen table is going to have a lot more character with the addition of a vintage Snidely Whiplash salt and pepper shaker. Whiplash was the archenemy of Dudley Do-Right on the animated Rocky and Bullwinkle Show produced in the 1950s and 1960s. He had a habit of tying poor and defenseless Nell Fenwick to railroad tracks.
