Greetings from Crave!

We had a record breaking March thanks to our awesome fans and sellers! We are really excited to improve upon Crave even more as we head into April. Soon we will be implementing a new, easier payment process so buyers will no longer have to leave the site to make a purchase. We are also going to add a ‘Customs’ section to the site, so if you’re interested in selling your custom figures look no further than Crave. To kick off the listing of customs we will be doing a special charity listing to aid the relief efforts in the wake of the earthquake in Japan. All this and the usual new and best price listings below!

PoundPay on Crave makes buying easier than ever:

We have been working in conjunction with PoundPay to allow our users to securely make purchases using their credit cards without leaving the site. Furthermore, sellers will now have the option of receiving payment through PayPal or directly into their bank account. The purchasing and selling process still works the same, but now it is on site! Click here for full details.

Customs on Crave!

We will be adding a new customs category to the catalog so that you Transfans who can’t settle for the way TFs are off the shelf can get in on the action. If you are interested in selling customs on Crave shoot us a message and you can be part of the first group of Customs sellers on Crave! Contact info is at the end of this message.

Japan Earthquake Relief Listing:

One of our most prolific sellers, Jason Carnley, got in touch with us about doing a charity listing to help relief efforts in China. He wanted to list his custom cartoon style G1 Optimus Prime and donate half the proceeds to International Disaster and Emergency Service (IDES). We thought this was a great idea. This custom is awesome! Jason added LED lights to the cab and trailer, repainted Optimus for classic cartoon colors, added custom made fuel cans and much much more. To go to the listing click here!

That’s weird I just got on and there was no “Customs area” hmmm… still it’s a good idea to have a custom part of the site, by the way LiKwid was that you’re Sixshot that I posted on the Transtopia discussion board? I’m wondering because the customizers sig on the photo was LKcustoms
