Random daily prizes will also be awarded in coordination with sponsors. Collectors will also be able to wager points via Collector Battles.
Hundreds of catalogs, with a strong focus on Action Figures and Designer Toys, are already up and running on ShelfLife.net and more are being added all the time. If a catalog is missing from the system collectors can now request it via your Collect Mode page.
You can also score big points by becoming a Curator, sort of like a Wikipedia editor or moderator, but you get a cut of the transactions in your catalog. More on that over here:
