    Is that a common practice with exhibitors? For pins to go on sale after a specific show? If so, I could understand not wanting to give it up. At the same time, I think that's what separates the casual collector from the avid ones. The only monetary value I typically associate with pins are the ones I actual pay for (e.g., Pax West core set, etc.) and not the ones I obtain from a demo or panel. I'll have to look into that a bit more. Thanks again for taking the time to reply.

    Honestly, there is no hard and fast rule that any given company must adhere to. They pay the fee to get the pin stamped w/ the Pinny Arcade logo and then it's up to them how and when to distribute it. Some pins have made it online later like Behemoth, Double Fine, and Think Geek. However, others have never been available or have sold out too quick to ever be online. Wizards has never put up D&D or Magic pins online. Same goes for Blizzard.

    Green Flame (Fist from D&D) is selling on eBay for $85-$100. Likely would be a 1:1 straight trade for the Witcher. Was not easy to get by the end of the show, especially since some of the WOTC employees were into pins themselves and were only trading them away for quality pins.

    Youseeks VR (Rick and Morty) is another POSSIBLE 1:1 trade pin.

    They were SUPPOSED to give out 200 a day, but with only 3 VR stations, and 10+ minutes per station, they never got thru them all. At the end of the show the Exhibitors were trading for some of the left overs, but it was a rare pin that involved a long wait (line was always capped at 30 people with a 2 hour wait at the end of that cap).

    It is selling for $60-70 right now.

    I just cannot justify spending absorbent amounts of money on one pin - no matter how much I want it. For my wife, absolutely. I almost pulled the trigger on an overpriced Auzzie Kemper she's been wanting for her collection but she stopped me because it wasn't worth it to her. I personally don't want any of the cats - I'm still hunting for that Gold Overwatch pin but will sooner buy her or try to trade for what she wants to complete her collection.

    At this point, after two failed deals for both of those pins, I may have to just give up on the gold overwatch pin and solely focus on that damn cat... Seeing her happy makes it worth while.

    But at the end of the day, I'm not prepared to dole out any money on them... I can't justify it...

    Okay, I've heard
    Thanks for the insight, ArcticLancer

    I know the only way to pick up the Mysterion pin was via the South Park panel, which I attended. Not sure how many they handed out in total.
    I believe the panel for South Park held 800.

    Still searching for a Gold Overwatch pin and Aussie Kemper for my wife. If anyone's able to help me and they're not from Canada, I'm sure I can also send some nice Canadian munchies with the trade :3

    I know I said I was going to save my US PAX set pins for AUS, but my pal couldn't get me the Youseeks VR pin from West, so if you have one for trade let me know.

    Perhaps mildly off-topic, but is there any place in particular that collectors are typically looking these days when purchasing pins? I know forum rules don't allow buying/selling here so I'm hoping there's another outlet that doesn't involve a 10% fee given the value of what I'm looking to sell off...

    If you join the Pinny Pals Slack, you could see if anyone in the #trade room is interested.

    I've got an Aus 2015 core set, some Aus 2016 core sets and two Aus Polys that I'm hoping to trade - looking to finish of my West 2016 and East 2013 & 2016 sets but happy to look at almost anything.

    Will throw in Tim Tams to sweeten offer.

    Just updated my lanyard after AUS.

    Forgot to grab a Cthulhu Swim while I was there so if anyone has a spare HIT ME UP BROSKI!


    Saved soooo much money at pax trading for sets I needed (kemp, nintendo etc). If you've got enough spares I totes recommend it.

    Not sure if this still fits in the trading post, but would anyone have a spare one of the older Kemper trading lanyards kicking around that they'd be willing to trade/sell?

    Evening All,

    Long story short. I am a Blizzard pin collector. After attending my 6th Blizzcon this year I decided to hunt down the Pinny Arcade Blizzard related pins to add to my collection. Hopefully I'll be able to make it to at least one PAX next year!
    I do have a couple of Blizzard/Blizzcon pins to trade, but aside from them I can offer PayPal :)

    Currently looking for the following:

    Leeroy Jenkins
    Hearthstone Cards
    Iron Horde
    Legion Illidari
    Overwatch Logo (Color and Gold)
    SDCC Stars n Striples Gold Raynor as well if anyone here deals in non Pinny Arcade pins

    Not sure if these are all of them or not, just the ones I currently know from hunting on eBay.

    Leeroy Jenkins, Heartstone cards, and both overwatch logo's will be hard to come by.
    Best thing to do. Is stock up on rarer pax pins and do a trade for them.
    Good luck.

    Is there a list where I can find these higher sought after PAX pins? I would definitely stock up on a few if it means trading. Then again I don't mind forking over the money if anyone has one they want to part with.

    Ways to get a Leeroy Jenkins and/or Gold Overwatch Pin

    A. Buy on eBay. Prices are similar for both, typically ranging from $150-$250 each.
    B. Buy directly from a collector. Unfortunately, few people have extras, and most are uninterested in selling them. Occasionally people will get out of the hobby, or become desperate for money, and will try to liquidate their collections.
    C. Win one. Sometimes, there will be rare pins available for auction or raffle to benefit charity. Also, PA occasionally sells blind boxes which have a very, very small chance of containing rare pins.
    D. Trade. This could be very time consuming, since you not only have to find someone willing to trade, but you have to have pins they'd be interested in. Leeroy and Gold Overwatch are arguably the 2nd/3rd most valuable pins, and there aren't too many other pins that have an equivalent value. Most of the highly desirable pins are older, and difficult to obtain in their own right. With each new PAX however, there is the potential for a new rare pin. For example, the Witcher pin from PAX East 16 and the Mysterion pin from PAX West 16 could possibly interest someone. Other highly desired pins include: Aus 13 set, East 13 set, Hanna, Twitch Glitch, Ellie, D&D, Vault Boy, Star Trek, Cinnamon Roll Gabe, Blind Merch, various Kemper pins.
