    Acquisitions Incorporated pin set?

    Why yes, I would love a Jim Darkmagic pin.

    Perth's 0600 on a Tuesday is still pretty rough, but it's better than 0300 or whatever it was last time for Hanna.

    I wonder how much the 15th anniversary pin will cost seeing as it's huge and essentially 2 pins stuck together.

  • TheAggroCraigTheAggroCraig Ultimate Lucky Douchebag MassachusettsRegistered User regular
    I wish they did a later time than 5PM EST... that's literally the worst time for me to buy it at work :( (crunch time is 4:30-5:15). I'll make it work though.

    An AI set?

    Also, this is all exciting news!

    If you're asking what AI stands for, it's Acquisitions Inc. Mike previously confirmed the set would be busts of the characters.

    And I agree. It's exciting! And a very quick response. Thanks Pedro and Mike, as always.

    @PedroAsani Thanks, as always, for the FAQ. Very quick response too. Can you ask next time if the slightly new design Merch pin will be available at PAX like the current one? Cheers.

    I know that a lot of people will be working or at school, but 2pm is the best time to ensure that nobody is going to be sleeping. It would have been better if the 18th fell on the Saturday, but we can't have everything. I can suggest that future Limited events are done on Saturdays, but that may be a non-starter given they are likely to want staff on hand if things go wrong.

    As for the Acquisitions Inc Set, I am curious as to which characters we are going to see. Omin Dran, Jim Darkmagic and Binwin Bronzebottom for certain. Aeofel Ehlromane? Viari? The AI logo? Tipsy Special? Skull-face Chris Perkins?

  • VaanroseVaanrose Pin Cushion SeattleRegistered User regular
    I really hope Aeofel and Viari are both in it, though I'd settle for just Aeofel. I'd love a Chris Perkins pin, if only because I consider him just as much a part of the team as the rest, but I'm not expecting one.

    I wouldn't say that's exactly true, and honestly there is no perfect time. When a vocal minority asked for change is wasn't for the whole group. It was for a change that benefitted them.

    Yes it was. Those on the west coast of Australia were having to be awake at 5am, and if they didn't exactly know the time of release, some were staying up all night and risking falling asleep before it went live. A compromise was found that made things better for them without making it even worse for others.

    The only way I can think of to make it better for everyone is to have Limited Pins released on Saturdays. If you like I can suggest it, but I can't guarantee PA will go for it. I'll also suggest any other ideas you have that will make any aspect of this easier for people.

    You are going to literally explode, when you see the Christmas pins. Whether it is a ragesplosion or joysplosion remains to be seen. I'm crossing my fingers for that Drunk Santa Div too.

    There is no perfect time. If you drop a pin on a Saturday than you screw over people like me who have to kill to get a weekend day off. As long as they announce the day in advance it should be fairly easy to plan around it.

    Really glad that the scrapper pins are at least on their radar. I knew it was foolish to announce any actual plans, but I am relieved hearing they have something. The idea of cheap counterfeits killing this before we really get it going sickened me.

    Ok, I wouldn't mind it if the new Merch pin looked like the second panel from today's strip. That square design has appeal.

    Well I got bumped back to 11PM...so my situation was made worse as I report to work at 0530. But whatever. @redfield85 is right. If I want it I will do what I feel is necessary to get it. I vote for a random, unannounced time...just like PAX tickets.

    I do not need you to send and email or tweet on my behalf. I can contact Mike, and Jerry myself if I ever feel the need to.

    While the price is insane, if they want to sell their whole collection, go ahead. Sometimes people have to stop with a hobby for more important things.

    The pins are pretty expensive when you get down to it, but $9,000 is nuts. Gabe has a bag full of every pin at each con so far. Sometimes he runs out of this or that, but you can always get the pins you dont have if you get to PAX.

    I wouldn't pay a nickel for a full collection. Gamers are notoriously cheap on the used market. I feel like you'd be lucky to clear a grand.

    It has a DLC pin included, that alone has been worth over $1k by itself to some people.

    $9K is absolutely insane though

    The seller removed it from Ebay.

    Indeed. There are some who would pay it, but I would not. You can get all these pins at any PAX event, you just need a little patience and determination. DLC is another thing, but I think its cray to pay $1,000.

    I don't think this is necessarily true. I mean the Cost for the DLC is obviously your opinion, which we all have our own. Other then that though I doubt that very few people will be trading any 2013 East or Aus pins at East 2014 FOR East 2014 pins. The value is simply higher for the older sets... I know I wouldn't.

    I will give that a lot of these people will be trading at the PAX events though, but certainly not all(and not easily if so).

    Of course DLC price is simply an opinion. I have the money to waste a grand on a pin, but I would never ever do that. Its just silly to me. Who knows what these will ultimately be worth? Now, if someone offered it to me for $200.... :P

    You are correct that regular people do not offer any good pins at the show - they offer you the same crap everyone else at the show has for hotness, just like everyone does here. Thus, you should approach PA staff. They are loaded with the good stuff. Mike especially. Every good pin I have comes from PA staff.

    That said, we have not yet seen the PAX East 2014 pins. I anticipate they will be the same pins save the 2013 east logo.

    Well, let's see. The guy has an East set and three Aus sets in the pack. Aus sets have actually sold on eBay for $500 each. Not just listed at, mind you, sold, and East fetches around $250 every time it's posted. The market has shown what those are worth, so that's the first $1750.

    The DLC pin has never made it on to eBay, so it remains to be seen how much it would sell for, but there was the guy that got offered $1000 at Pax, so we'll just call it that. We're up to $2750 now.

    Hanna's selling point varies, I've seen it go for as low as $45 and as high as $115. The average seems about $60, so multiplied by six and you've got $360. Add that to the running total: $3110

    It looks like he's got three complete base sets (plus a couple singles). Those are only worth face value, though it's arguable the 2012 minting is worth a bit more due to scarcity. Another $90. Four complete Lookouts sets adds another $140. Two T&C sets for $60, and three Halloween sets for $90. Last I checked Chainsawsuit is still available online, so face value pegs his 27(!) at $270. Pigglesworth is sold out, and it's one of the harder pins to gauge, since most sold auctions happened before it went up online. But he's got 27 of them, so at least $270. Running total: $4030

    Now it gets trickier, as pretty much every con exclusive pin varies wildly in price, sometimes selling for $10, sometimes pushing $70, or even over $100 for Aus Chandra. Certain pins seem to go for less, Second Son, Elspeth, others seem to go for more, CTS and ZT, logo pin. In the interest of simplicity, I'm just going to say $30 each seems to be about average for every con pin, except the Chandras, which go for a bit more. He's got a lot of these, though, so they add up. By my count that's $1490, running total $5520

    Last we've got his Prime core sets and Merch pins. The most recent Prime core auctions are fetching around $65. Merch varies wildly, to the point where I'm not even comfortable attaching a price, but $30 seems to be the going rate, outliers excluded. 2 Prime sets plus 3 merch pins, adds another $220 to the pot.

    So, all told, based only on selling points of the pins included, that brings the net value of the whole lot to $5740. You have to consider the fact that having them all in one place adds some value to the sale, so I'd be comfortable listing an auction like this for $6000.

    THAT said, I honestly can't see any one person paying that much. It's a much better idea to break the lot up into smaller lots, imo. (If you're reading this, ggorilla_psu, you're welcome.)

    TL;DR - The pins are worth $6000.

    There is definitely something to the pins having value though, thats what makes collectible.

    Hmm maybe the seller was inflating the price on purpose to take the furure price increase into account or maybe it was just a bluff. Also DLC is tricky to value cause it's never been put up for trade or sale before. I got the same value Vaanrose :p

    Oh god, just realized that all week I had the 15th anniversary and the sale date confused so until right just now, I thought the pin went on sale 3 min ago.
