    Does anyone have a card back for a single pin? I traded for a Chandra Australia, and she was out of package. I'd like to get her on the official cardboard ASAP.

    edit: Also, does anyone know if purchasing from the Penny Arcade Store qualifies you for a Merch pin if you spend more than $100?

    Probably not?

    Anyhoo, if you can get most pins via trading, and the core set is $30, I can assume pins are about $6 each. (East and AUS can probably answer this for me without my guesses...)

    But yeah, I count 40... 41 pins? This is just PAX Prime alone. And 41 pins times $6 dollars each is about $250 to get all the pins at PAX Prime. I don't think I can make that kind of investment. Guess I'll just get a PAX set and a lookouts set, and trade away lookouts pins for strip search, khoo and maybe some other pins I want to trade for.

    I don't have any extra card backs sadly. Someone might.

    As for the merch pin, I would maybe tweet at Brian (@retnus) and go right to the source. He is pretty good at answering.

    IMO time is a factor in collecting as well, I think that it would be possible to get a full set in time and not right away.
    Now I know that they will be releasing new pins etc but if we keep a strong community it will make it easier for people who want a complete set.
    I really do believe in the pin pal set up where we can help each other achieve our collecting goals, collecting is supposed to be a little challenging right?

    Comes with the bragging rights.

    Ayefkay, as much as being in Australia can be seen as a disadvantage it also works in our favor IMO.
    Our pins are in another country, the only thing that I am a little concerned about is are we going to
    get the same amount of pins released as PAX PRIME and EAST as there are more vendors there.
    Granted that Behemoth makes up a monster slice of what's being released, pin trades are still generally 1:1.

    Hey guys, I just made an account for this (I don't know how receptive you all are to "outsiders" :P)
    I was at PAX Aus and was lucky enough to bump into Jerry in the hall and, long story short, he stole very generously traded under awkward circumstances his zombie Tycho pin for my Aus Kemper and now my PAX Aus set is missing it dearly (oh how they cry at nights when they think I'm asleep). Therefore I implore you good folk, if one of you manages to get their hands on an Aus Kemper, perhaps at PAX Prime, that they're willing to trade please let me know. My main trade fodder in this deal is a PAX Aus Chandra pin, still sealed, never opened, in it's cozy little plastic baggy.

    Thank you in advance for your consideration.

    I'm gonna be at PAX Prime and I'm looking for the AUS Chandra pin. I have a handful of pins for trade including East Chandra, Gabe and Tycho's exclusive pins. Does anyone with a spare AUS Chandra want to trade at Prime? Let me know. Thanks!

  • verybluetardisverybluetardis Pins and coffee. Let's be friends. Bellevue, WARegistered User regular
    I have a PAX East Chandra. Reeeeeally wanting to trade for the PAX Aus Chandra! My handle is the same on twitter; DM or tweet at me! I'll be at the con for the better part of the 4 days!!!

  • AyefkayAyefkay Queensland, AustraliaRegistered User regular
    Hey! Welcome to the recent new posters, the more the merrier! Gabe has recently tweeted about this thread, so expect even more traffic. Make sure to read the OP as well.

    Gabe has also referred to us as 'Pin Pals' so I guess we are unofficially AND officially Pin Pals :D

    Since PAX Prime is this weekend, I wanted to post a little word of advice. I was at PAX East and was lucky enough to get all the pins (with the exception of the Merch pin). Considering there are so many more pins now, PAX Prime is going to be a trading frenzy but if you are looking to trade pins with Mike or Jerry and want to be able to choose which pin you give up (apparently their own choices have not always been easy to part with) see if you can be lucky enough to trade during their autograph session. At PAX East, they literally had a big basket of their unique, Gabe and Tycho trade only pins and you could drop whatever pin you wanted to part with (had to be official Pinny Arcade) for the pin you wanted (1:1). Not sure if they will do this again and considering the autograph line fills up quickly, this may help only a limited number of people but I figured I would mention it. Sorry if this is at all repetitive from previous posts.

  • redfield85redfield85 Registered User regular
    It probably is repetitive, but meh.

    Also, you shouldn't be wearing pins you want to keep. Would you rather lose pins you were gonna trade or pins you were gonna keep?

    And I didn't have any issues trading for the exclusive pins with anyone. I took a pin off my lanyard, asked for a trade, and we traded.

    I have the same issue, as an Aussie. If you still have one left over, I would sorely love it. I also intend to frame my first full set, and it drives me nuts that the CORE set says EAST 2013 :(

    I have an Aus Chandra spare. We'll need to trade by post, though, as I won't be able to come to a US PAX for a good year at least haha (airfares from Australia are expensive!). Send me a PM after Prime with your Pinny-loot (staff, vendors, etc) that you're willing to trade. :)

    Welcome to our fresh batch of Pin Pals!
    Best of luck and happy hunting.
    just because it has been a while.
    Don't offer to buy or sell any pins on the thread!
    I have infringed in the past as a few others have, just an intermittent reminder because sometimes we need them.

    any hoo
    Dear Primers,
    Have you got a spare Elspeth pin from the Magic the Gatheing booth?
    you can trade it to me; Reneguage!
    To receive the beautifully crafted Chandra V2 Pin in exchange!

    -also-

    hunting for a Uber exclusive PAX Austalia Logo Pin?
    do you have a PAX East logo pin just sitting around?
    Then I have the answer for you!
    trade with me and your life will be enrich by the possession of aforementioned PAX Australia Logo Pin!

    Trade with Reneguage!

    Completely agree but considering PAX East was the first time the pins were released, it was fun to wear them as I obtained each one. Many others did the same thing but its not a practice I would continue in the future.

  • reneguagereneguage Registered User regular
    Have fun.
    Stay safe and good luck!
    And remember to spread the word of the trade thread.
    It'll be interesting to see how many more Pin Pals we get

  • SerpicoBCSerpicoBC Registered User regular
    I'm flying out to Seattle tomorrow. My goal is to get a few sets of Prime and Lookouts, the PVP pin and then any I can grab at the Magic booths and on the floor. I should be in a good place to trade when all is said and done.

  • SerpicoBCSerpicoBC Registered User regular
    Also, regarding the backings, the only cardboard back I kept was for the DLC pin. I've been pitching the rest. I'm storing all of mine on foam sheets separated by felt in a notebook. I would rather be able to leaf through the whole collection than keep them backed and wrapped.

  • AyefkayAyefkay Queensland, AustraliaRegistered User regular
    Ah, just noticed that the Twisp and Catsby set WILL NOT be sold at any show. Just a heads up incase anybody planned to do so.

    You taunt me with your avatar, @PedroAsani. You are evil.

    I have to stop thinking about the rest of the pins. I keep telling myself I should get the Chainsawsuit one, but I have only read a handful of the comic. I am going to bank on Kris having them at East. Maybe. Hopefully. D-:

    Did you see Kris' Kickstarter (that is over)? He had pins in there and I was a fool and didn't back it.

    Behemoth pins are $5 per random pull of the capsule machine and they don't have the golden whale pin, so they now only have 8 in the set.

    firstly.... $5 x 9 pins.....45 MINIMUM if youre lucky enough not to get doubles...yikes

    secondly, by "dont have the golden whale pin" do you mean its not a part of the set, or they've run out of it?

    Happy hunting everyone, hopefully your PAX is bountiful!

    Spread the word of the PIN PALS!

    Don't trade your con exclusive pins unless it's 1:1 con exlc

    Only wear trades unless you're constantly checking so you don't lose.

    and if anyone is going to ask questions on the Q&A ask something pin pal, like are the proud of the little community that's growing or if let Mike know that he should design us a pin pal pin/logo/shirt so we can rep pin pals even harder

    Wishing you all the best at PAX PRIME!!

    $5 isn't bad. I didn't even want the whole set anyway.

    And by no gold whale, I mean it doesn't exist. Not at PAX. Maybe future PAXs.

    FYI, people at Prime, Mike tweeted and had a DLC pin on one of his many lanyards. YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO! (Get it and then trade it to me.)

    Hey everyone. I hope this is ok to post here, but my friend is at PAX Prime and just had over $300 worth of merch stolen from him (most of which was pins). Please keep a lookout for anyone talking about/showing off merch that they didn't buy. Help a fellow pin pal out :/. The merch consisted of 3 Lookouts sets, 3 Core sets, 3 Prime sets, 3 merch pins and a scarf.

  • redfield85redfield85 Registered User regular
    Sorry to hear. Hopefully it shows up.

    What happened? Did they take a break and just leave the bag down and forget?

    Well, $175 later I'm officially in the Pin game.
    (I wish there had been a comment box at checkout so I could have asked about the merch pin)

    I just purchased 3 starter sets and 2 Catsby... so I'll soon be posting on here about my extra's to see what people are interested in.
    feel free to start calling out what you're interested in now... I know that they're the basic stuff, but these are just what you'll want to trade for the cool stuff at the next event.
    I'm going to go stare at the pictures of the pins that are already out and start making a list of the ones I want the most.

    I'm so excited to be doing this... can you tell?

  • AboutLastNightAboutLastNight Whitney Registered User regular
    He sat down to have lunch at a big table and put the merch bag down next to him. He looked down a few minutes later and it was gone. He's really hoping that someone accidentally picked it up and turns it in later once they look in the bag, but that's a stretch :(

    Gotta straddle at lunch. Put that sucker between your legs. That is what I typically do any time whether it be eating, resting, or waiting in line.
