Listing Bonus: September 29-30

The Crave listing bonus is an extra cash incentive for sellers to put fresh items on the site and provide buyers with a wider selection of figures to browse. The seller who lists the most products in each marketplace today (September 29th) and midnight tomorrow (September 30th) will win $50. Sellers can also win the bonus across multiple categories. The rules of the promotion are below. Be sure to read them to make sure your listings are eligible!

Rules:

  1. Listings must be legitimate products that are actually for sale and listed in the appropriate marketplace (Listing a Robotech Veritech in the TF Marketplace will not count).
  2. Listings must be for products, not parts.
  3. a majority of the listings must remain on the site after September 30th (unless they are sold). If the winner removes more than half of the listings they posted between September 29th-30th from Crave immediately following the contest’s close their eligibility for this bonus will be revoked. This ties directly back to rule 1, listings must be legitimate products that are actually for sale.

Scout Craig Chapell had some thoughts on his selections. He stated that Deep Dive really turned him around on the Sea Spray mold, saying that the figure is much better in hand than photos suggested to him. He also thought the 23 legends class figures at $30 from Jeremy M. Carmichael was a steal.

One of Scout Jesse Gullett’s selections included a G2 Bruticus for it’s obnoxious, attention grabbing color scheme (and his secret desire to complete one of his own). He went on to say that the 4 mode Animated Shockwave is a fantastic figure and deserves a place in any Animated collector’s collection.

Transformers was an early obsession for Colin, starting at the ripe old age of 4 with a G1 (possibly G2) figure of Optimus Prime. We are pumped to have Colin with us, and enjoy the interview!
