Want of the Week – 1935 Phantom Empire Movie Lobby Card

Lobby cards were a form of picture show advertising in the early 20th century in movie theaters. They were smaller than the standard movie poster and often displayed on an easel in the front lobby of the theater. They generally came in sets of six or eight and depicted different scenes from the featured film.

A FyndIt member is searching for a lobby card for the 1935 American Western film The Phantom Empire. This twelve chapter musical was a crossover between western and science-fiction genres. They have posted a Want for The Phantom Empire lobby card to FyndIt and are asking the community to help them track down an original copy in good shape. They have exhausted their resources online and are specifically looking for help searching local collectible stores all over the world.

Want of the Week – Bausack Game Second Edition

Board games are a great way to relax and have fun with family and friends. A FyndIt member discovered a new game to play over the winter break and needs the help from the FyndIt community to track one down.

Bausack is a clever game where you stack odd shaped pieces together to build a tower. It’s sort of like Jenga in reverse. The game is so popular it is sold out and admirers of the game are scrambling to find copies online after the big holiday rush.

FyndIt’s First Year Anniversary

We’ve crossed a milestone in the history of FyndIt! November 11th marks the one-year anniversary of the launch of our website. Thanks to our amazing community of Wanters and Finders, in the past year we have been able to help people find stuff from all over the world!

It has been really interesting to watch the site in action and be able to check out the cool and unusual stuff people are hoping to track down. We get super excited when we see Finds start to roll in that our members have posted in response to a Want. It’s great when there’s a handful of options for a Wanter to choose from. There’s nothing like that awesome feeling we get when a collector scores a rare item in great condition for an affordable price on FyndIt! We make it easier for a Wanter to shop for their hard-to-find items and also make it possible for successful Finders to earn money hunting online and in stores for treasures and collectibles.

 

To get our first year started off right, we held two awesome contests rewarding finalists with near mint signature series CGC comic books. Our Classic X-Men Comic Contest Grand Prize winner earned a NM CGC set of Uncanny X-Men #141 and #142 signed by Stan Lee valued at $1,500. The Grand Prize winner in our Mean, Green TMNT Contest walked away with a NM CGC first issue of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles signed by Eastman and Laird worth $10,000! Holding the two comic book contests really skyrocketed site traffic and helped us gather a lot of great insight and feedback about how the FyndIt community interacts with the site’s user interface.

Based upon feedback from contest participants and other members posting comments and suggestions to our Community Forums, we’ve turned out several updates in the past year to improve FyndIt’s user experience. We’ve added the option to upload multiple images, streamlined how a user posts a Want or a Find, added the ability to link to smaller e-commerce sites and allowed Wanters additional options for where a Find can be located.

We’re constantly looking for ways to improve our site and help people get their hands on stuff they want to find. We’ve got lots of fun updates in store for FyndIt’s second year and can’t wait to start rolling them out! If you’re just hearing about FyndIt for the first time, like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter to keep up with the cool and unique stuff people post as Wants and Finds to our site.

 

Get Paid to Find Comics & Collectibles

FyndIt is a site that helps connect people who want stuff with the people who know where to find it. We bring people together to assist each other in locating rare and elusive collectibles and memorabilia online and in stores.

When someone is looking for a hard-to-find collectible, they list it as a Want on our website. What is a Want? Well…it’s exactly just that! Something that someone wants, but just can’t seem to find.

Once an item is listed as a Want on FyndIt, our community of Finders search all over the world for it. Why would they help a stranger find stuff? Because they get paid for it! Each Want offers up a bounty reward to the person who can find the item. Bounties can be anywhere from $1 to $5 to $20 or more! If you come across a Want online or in a store, post it as a Find and if your item is accepted as a match, you’ll earn money! FyndIt bounty rewards can easily be cashed out through your PayPal account.

Check out the most recent Wants listed on FyndIt and see if you can track down any of the comics or collectibles wanted by our members. There are several listed with $10 bounty rewards. If you were able to find even just a handful of items, your rewards would stack up pretty quick!

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.
