    I kinda want the pins, but i also REALLY want the figure... WHAT DO, GUYS?, WHAT DO?

    I'm in the same boat. At this point it's looking like I'll probably just get this pins now, since their ks exclusive. I can buy the figure later on when I've got a bigger income

    Anyone see the new Pokecenter Pikachu pin?

    It is basically this Pikachu in pin form.

    Really curious if anyone here has picked one of these up. Real interested in getting one but I'm curious how big it is and what the quality is. While I'm not a huge collectors of non-PA pins I really love pokemon. The price point is really messing with me, basically I'm just wondering if anyone who has it could verify it's worth it.

    I saw two of them at PAX last week. They don't have as glossy a finish as most PA pins, but it still looked pretty high quality. I didn't handle it to check thickness or anything, but it was a little bigger than most average PA pins, and smaller than the 15th anniversary pin.

    I got one, it's really nice. Qumaden's right that it's less glossy, but it's still very high quality. Size is right there with PA pins. It's actually got two posts, one for Pikachu's body and one securing his tail, I suppose because it sticks out so much. The rubber backs hold tight and two of them means it's super secure on a lanyard. As someone who loves Pokemon and hasn't collected any pins but PA pins, I think it's worth it.

    Hopefully she has Stripsearch pins too, make sure you guys ask.

    Is Katie going too? That would help with some missing pins for you guys too.

  • AyefkayAyefkay Queensland, AustraliaRegistered User regular

    I will in a few days lol. I actually had an extra but gave it to a friend. The Tyrael pin is actually my favorite one in the set. But ya, after BlizzCon I'll be fully stocked :)

  • QumadenQumaden World's Mightiest Mortal Registered User regular
    I've read that they're going to go up on the Blizz store after Blizzcon. It's gonna be just the Series 1 from SDCC there right? Are they all blind box style? You seem to be quite the Blizz enthusiast Frost, so I'm asking you.

    I've had my finger hovering over the buy it now button on a Tyrael pin on ebay because it's so badass, but that's the only non-Warcraft one I care for, but all the Warcraft 3 personalities are badass to me.

    I think I have a pin problem guys...

    The series one blind packs from SDCC are the same pins that will be sold at BlizzCon, with 1 exception. There will be a BlizzCon exclusive pin (Murky) available for sale as well. Blind pin packs are $4 each, and every pin has a gold chase variant. The SDCC exclusive pin, Patriot Raynor, will likely be floating around the pin boards as well.

    Don't buy it from eBay... I promise I can get you one at BlizzCon haha.

    And if you or anyone else is interested, wowhead had an exclusive Goodie Bag reveal posted today.

    4 Bucks a pop for a random from a choice of like ten? That's pretty good value and promotes trade pretty well. Being a giant billion dollar corporation has it's perks for sure. I saw the gold variants and didn't care for them.

    How's the quality of the pins?

    I thought the same thing at first too, but man... In person they look great. They have a lot more detail.

    Anyway, the quality is good. The back of the pins are not as polished as Pinnys, but I'd imagine that's going to improve withe series 2. Definitely a great value as trading pins go!

    Great, now I've got to do this thing too. With any luck that will cover all of my interests and I won't end up snorting pins off of a prostitute in Pusan South Korea

    I bought the Virtual Ticket and I was hoping the online store would have some more of the pins to get. The WoW 10 year pin looks fantastic.

    The store says it will update in early November with more gear, so I'm hoping we'll see the series pins at that point.

    I ordered the 2014 BlizzCon pin and the 10 year WoW pin, but they haven't even shipped yet.

    I got ahold of both Raynor pins after SDCC, I'm going to have to keep an eye out for Murky in case they don't put it up directly on the store.

    Aaaaaand I don't see the 10 year pin in the store anymore. Do I look at it as saving me money, or keeping me from having another shiny trinket I need to display?

    Pins for trade!

    If you look on the map, you can see that they actually have an area specifically designated for pin trading.

    I might see you there then! I'll bring my PA Pins (for trade). I was also thinking about doing Disney one day so I'll have those damn pins as well... my suitcase is getting heavier by the minute...

    The good news about Disney is that you don't have to go into the park to see or buys 95% of their pins. There is a Pin Trading store at Downtown Disney, which is free. But if you wanted to go to the park to enjoy it, then sure.

    As for seeing me up there, I'm sad to say that's unlikely :(. Odds are I'll be down in the registration hall working from 8am-10pm daily, if you want to swing by and say hello when you pick up your badge and goodie bag :)

    I don't know, they seem to have the same problem as the first Blizzard pins - too much detail and much too busy.

  • AyefkayAyefkay Queensland, AustraliaRegistered User regular
    Agree for the clickers, but the Joel/Ellie pins are pretty sweet imo

  • adambargadambarg Forward the Pinglorious Basterds!Registered User regular
    Does that have a dull finish like The Order, or is it just the picture?

  • QumadenQumaden World's Mightiest Mortal Registered User regular
    The gold pins have the finish like the order pin, the regular are a glossy look

    If anyone at BlizzCon was able to get an extra Murky pin, I can send you money via paypal if you could get an extra for me. :(
    I got the SDCC exclusive pin and wish to get the Blizzcon as well

    After a LOT of trading, I was able to get the full color set AND gold. Phew... They sold out completely of pins midday. So no restock tomorrow. I heard they are doubling up the pin trade area instead.

    If anyone gets an extra of the Murky pin, I'd be down to pay you for that as well. >< Or hell the coin from HS I'm pretty into as well.

  • QumadenQumaden World's Mightiest Mortal Registered User regular
    I'm greatly saddened that my people at blizzcon were unable to get me these pins.
