    I'm not too crazy about them, but I'll get them anyway of course.

    Kemper is underwhelming, and I'm not sure I like Gabe's weird proportions, but Tycho sells the whole set for me.

    The Div pin isn't as cool as I'd like it to be, but I LOVE DIV and I love pins. So I'll be buying it :)

    Let's not forget the inclusion of glitter enamel. I suspect that will make these pins really pop.

    Loving these designs, but I'm starting to feel a little uncomfortable with Gabe and Tycho appearing in each PAX and Holiday set thus far. I know it's a silly complaint, but we already have so many Gabe and Tycho designs: This will be the seventh individual design for each of them (and of course DLC and 15th Anniversary, but those are special cases), which feels like a lot next to the rest of the pins so far.

    Of course, it's entirely possible that this is just an effect of this being the first full year of Pinny Arcade and the distributions will change next year. I'd just sort of like to be able to get excited about future sets as "four pins" instead of "G+T and two other pins".

    Let me just get a beep boop on your PAX badge real quick!

    I think you are going to see a high proportion of G&T Pins, much like with Disney has plenty of Mickey and Minnie Pins. Particularly since the PA bench only has so many properties to draw from right now besides basic PA. We have Eyrewood, Automata, Sand, New Kid, AI and Twisp&Catsby. Friends that are likely to say yes: Scott Kurtz, Kris Straub, Katie Rice (yes there are others, but these guys are in the same office). Now we already have Pins from two of the three Eyrewood properties, AI is coming out soon, Twisp&Catsby are out, so that leaves three from there. Kris and Scott had Pins recently, and whilst I would love to see more I think that is likely to be a PAX thing, much like the Staff heads. So that leaves Katie. Three PA properties, one Friend to tap.

    Mike has said that the long term goal is to have Pins from all over gaming. The difficulty lies in licensing them. As much as he would want to, he can't just bang out a Mario set or even a Space Invaders set because someone would have him savaged by lawyers. So they are going to come out eventually, but it will be slow. PAX helps with this.

    But for the most part, you are going to see a lot of G&T Pins because Penny Arcade. Other characters you want to see? We have a suggestion list, and I'll be putting any suggestions I receive in the FAQ as always.

    No, it makes sense. You just have to dig to the first 5 or so comics to find it.

    Gabe is the one who has the Grinch face. Tycho just had a grump face.

    I have a feeling this is how I will feel about most seasonal releases.

    I'm not going to be able to get the 15th pin due to money, but I'm looking forward to the Christmas and AI sets :D Also my Halloween set has apparently arrived in the UK but I was an idiot and had it sent to my home address instead of my Uni address. D'oh.

    He asked if there were Pin Pals watching and then said he would drop this "top secret" info:

    "I think they will come out with the Holiday pin set but we have merch-shaped pin backs...like the Disney pins, but they are merch-shaped. They are on the way!"

    That'd be cool if I used the official pinbacks. I like actually wearing my pins around Pax, so I use locking backs to prevent them from falling off.

    They *should* be OK, I'd wager. I wear my pins every day on the Core lanyard (because I keep my college card on it, which also serves as my room key) and they haven't fallen off/been damaged yet. Of course I understand why you'd want to keep them extra safe, I'm just saying that if you needed/wanted to use the regular/Merch pin backs at any time that you'd probably be OK :D

    The small amount of times I've worn them, I haven't had many issues. One or two of them sort of came loose after getting a bit snagged by my shirt, it seemed, but none have ever fallen off. Though, I do worry when I wear them, and find myself compulsively checking the lanyard, so I get where @Vaanrose is coming from.

    I've never had a pin fall of. But I'm not gonna let them get the chance to, either. The locking backs are like 10 cents a piece, and that's a good price for peace of mind.

    I don't see a problem with most of the pins, but some of them are starting to get heavy. The anniversary pin looks massive.

    Yeah, I was worried about that anniversary pin too-it looks super heavy :/ Guess we'll have to wait and see when we have it in hand!

    Less than forty eight hours until the Pin Drop! How are you passing the time? Personally I keep glancing at the clock hoping I entered a temporary fugue state and that it's now Monday.

    Sporadically freaking out, then relaxing again, as I remember that in Australia the Pin Drop is on Tuesday.

    And now, going to go run a tabletop roleplaying session for my wife.

    Slight personal tangent for a moment... Just received the last 3 pins I needed. Now I'm completely up to date for 2013! (minus December pin releases)

    It might vary by phone, but I believe most smartphones will automatically adjust based on time zone if you set an alarm/reminder. This depends on having connectivity when you have crossed the time zone (so that your phone can recognize your new geographic area and change the time accordingly), but you should be okay.

    I think it's because we're all quietly camping the store, even more so than last time, fingers carefully poised to click the buttons necessary to purchase that sweet, sweet pin.

    The pin and the sweet, sweet scarf. I assume the re-drawn first comic will be available for awhile, so I'm just grabbing 2 pins and the scarf as fast as I can.
