    Yes, I will post here once I have shipped all the coins in the first batch.

    I really hope there is a second printing. I have the challenge coins from the last two years and was looking forward to adding this year to my collection. I was watching this thread, but missed a few days and lost my chance to get in on the first run.

    Alternatively, if anyone has an extra first printing coin you would be willing to sell, please send me a message.

    There will be another run of coins, and they are going to be exactly the same as the first run.

    Yes, I received your payment. As well as everybody else who sent a check / cash in.
    Sorry I didn't let you all know sooner.

    Cool. I missed the post indicating that the second run was now a sure thing. Also, I realize now my message was a bit unclear- I didn't mean to imply that first runs were somehow different, just that I thought the first run was the *only* run. :)

    Invoice received and paid for :D...Any rough estimate on when the next batch will be shipped out?

    No rush, just excited! lol

    And with the clicking, came the ticking, of the page that was no more.

    I don't think the first batch has even been shipped out yet to purchasers. I could be wrong though, but he said he'd post when he shipped the first and he hasn't done so yet.

  • SkeleVaderSkeleVader Dark Lord of Destruction Registered User regular
    Correct, I have ordered all the padded shipping supplies, once I get them I will be able to start sending out the first batch.

    A rough estimate for the second batch would probably be that they will be shipped to you in about a month.

    Invoiced received and paid for. I really wasn't interested at first because the design seemed kind of meh but it just turned out so well on the coin!

    You know, it's funny but that's how I felt on previous years' coins. This year going over to a PC motif was what really drove me to take notice, and I have some friends coming out for their first PAX so I thought I would surprise them with the coins as a lasting reminder of how awesome this community is. I have to admit, it's amazing how well such a simple design looks in raised relief on a chunk o'metal. Now I kinda wish I'd participated in this a few years back.

    I mailed most of the coins in the first batch today. I was one envelope short so I will need to go pick another one up, but all the others are on their way is very oversized padded envelopes.

    Have you started sending invoices for the second batch yet? I have not received an invoice and just want to make sure I don't miss my chance. I filled out the form when it still said it was a waitlist- do I need to do it again now that the second batch is confirmed?

  • SkeleVaderSkeleVader Dark Lord of Destruction Registered User regular
    Yes, I have sent the invoices for the second batch. There have been a couple people that didn't get the invoice the first time I sent it so I will send yours again. If you don't see it soon let me know.


  • OysterPrimeOysterPrime Registered User regular
    I just wanted to chime in and say that I received my coins today, and I am blown away at how they came out. SkeleVader, you are the man. Thanks so much for putting this together. These coins will be great mementos for the first PAX that me and my group are attending.

    Hmm, just noticed that these are in vinyl pouches rather than capsules. I might have to see if I can get some of those capsules for my own coins...

  • karmacappakarmacappa Registered User regular
    It shouldn't be hard to get capsules for them. I think these should work, but don't quote me on that. Buy at your own risk because I can't guarantee 100% that these would fit this particular coin. They're big pages, so just search for down the list until you find the entry I mention.

    If you get them, let me know where. I am also planning to get two for ours.

    Invoice just paid, apologies for the slight delay due to a destroyed phone inhibiting access to the e-mail account in question.

    Saw the coin photo a few posts back, can't wait to pick these babies up!

    I ordered a few of these to see how they'd work for these coins. It's no big loss if they don't work since they're pretty inexpensive, but I'll post back in this thread to report on how they work.

    The coins look really nice! Thanks for putting all of the hard work into getting these for us!

  • SkeleVaderSkeleVader Dark Lord of Destruction Registered User regular
    The orders have slowed down quite a bit & there are still a handful of people who haven't paid in the second group, so I only ordered another 150 coins. If interest picks up again as we get closer I can always order more.


  • ioicctsniwioicctsniw Registered User regular
    Just a quick question for you first batch folks. It's been a while since Skele sent out the first batch and I'm just wondering if anyone else has not received their coins yet. I haven't seen them come in the mail but maybe it's just he postal service being slow.

    Sorry, I haven't sent your order yet. I was one envelope short and you were last on the list. I haven't had time to get to the post office to get another one so I have ordered more and am waiting on them to send your out.

    Right on, thanks for the quick response! Didn't want to be a pest but just wasn't sure what was going on.

  • FenrisfangFenrisfang Registered User regular
    SkeleVader, I just want to confirm that I am still good to pick my 2 coins up at PAX. As you know I was having issues with payment. Got it to work, but now I am worried that (for whatever reason) it didn't ACTUALLY get to you. (ok...so maybe I'm just a little paranoid) That said, I would hate to miss out on this just because I didn't ask.

    Thanks!

    Should they all have arrived yet? I still have not got ours but thought maybe they were just taking a while since we are across the country.

    Yes, your payment has been received.


    adias.angel,
    USPS says your package was delivered on June 13 at 1:00PM.
    Have you had problems with packages not making it to your place before?
    I will send replacement coins with the next batch since it looks like someone might have lifted your package.

    If you have a pile of unclaimed coins at the show, i imagine you could walk around with a sign on Friday or Saturday morning along the line of people waiting to get in and pretty much finish them off.

    I got my coins safe and sound - they are wonderful. Thank you for running this effort! :)
