    Yeah, the DLC pin is super painful. I'd been out of work for a few months when the Kickstarter was closing, could not swing it :/

    I remember a lot of people were reluctant when they where first around, when I was summing up wether or not I thought it was worth it I broke up the rewards and how much it was actually costing between the two pledges.

    I think the DLC pin only actually ended up being an extra $50-60 dollers so I only saw it as paying that much for the pin and not the $150 price tag most people would see it as.

    I mean I love my USB and DLC poster which where also the only time you could get them ASWELL as the awesome Daughters print you got with it. :)))

    Well this is interesting... someone's putting up a DLC pin, current bidding is at $100


    Well..$405 now. 5 days left too, plenty of time for it to jump into the 4 digit range

    Valentines Day pins came in today. They are actually fairly big themselves. I would say the same size as the DLC, not as big as the 15th. This "no sleeve on single pins" thing might get a little annoying though; one of the crowns on the backing was a little messed up.

    Excellent! Finally, a metal pin based on a ZX Spectrum computer game character! And it's MINE

    I bought both the KI pins. Anybody know how limited they are, if they even are?

    If I remember correctly, they made enough so that the pin ultimate guys can 100% get one, and then a pre determined extra.

    This is true. Those with Pin Ultimate Editions should be taken care of, but obviously if you leave it too long then you will have a problem.

    If you don't buy pins as they come out you are in a world of hurt trying to put a collection together at a later date.

    Do we have any idea as to when that Pinny Arcade messenger bag will come up? Because I will buy the heck out of that.

    Also, I finally mounted all my Year 1 (2012/2013) pins on corkboard, with the poster as the label. I'm very happy with how it came out, though the picture isn't fantastic. In any event, this is everything. Killer Instinct and Valentine's Day are Year 2, so I'm going to keep them separate. I just want this as a standalone "100% completeness" kind of thing for myself.

    But two of the KI pins were released in 2013?

    In my collection I'm keeping the KI pins separate. I don't want to have two of them as 2013 and the rest as 2014 so I'm going to use their display for those, and make my own for the rest.

    That is just personally what I'm doing, but I'm guessing that is the intention by Serpico possibly.

  • redfield85redfield85 Registered User regular
    Gotta keep the KI pins separate since they have their own official display case. ;)

    Yeah, I agree with @00Fayt00 and @redfield85. If they come with a separate display, that's where they're gonna live.

    Seeing the poster cut up nicely, I am kinda of sad I didn't go for it. Maybe they will have leftovers at PAX.

    Taking the thing apart took about an hour with a pair of scissors, but it was worth it. Two nice corkboards and all my collection in one place is the reward.

    Did you get notified of my trade offer through pinnypals Serpico? I don't mind if you don't want to accept it, it's just I haven't got a reply from anyone that I've made an offer to.

    All emails are 100% delivered..."read" is another thing all together :P My next priority is really to get the Trading Post done, there you will be able to set a specific trade "X for Y" and that should really help with not wondering if the person wants your trade!

    New pins for 2014 have been added to site.

    I do apologise that development looks like it hit a stand still, I haven't given up at all, I still love it. My search for a helper hasn't picked up any one yet. I plan on returning to it soon, I've just gotta finish a few contracts that popped up :)

    I have one I'm not using and would trade for/include in a trade.

    Don't let it be said that ebay isn't a viable option for pins. I just got an East Chandra in the mail I won last week for 15 dollars.

    If you filter your search the right way, you never know what you'll find!

    I don't about oz... but in the states VD has a whole different meaning... needless to say I was a little concerned when I first read your post...

    Oh we don't have VD here just snakes.

    I don't think that the Trade offer on the Pinny Pals webpage is up. If anyone wants to offer a trade, I think it needs to happen here. Unless I'm somehow missing that feature.

    grgemonkey said after that post that the emails should be going through. That's what sends the emails right? Sending a trade offer, and then it's all email after that?

    @fishfishmonkeyhat, my issue is that I'm not even getting the emails. I'm missing out on all sorts of trading joy.

  • fishfishmonkeyhatfishfishmonkeyhat Freelance Pin Man Newcastle, AustraliaRegistered User regular
    Well that's the issue I was trying to work out, were people not responding to my offers (at which point I'd get an email), or was it just not working.

    Seems to be the latter for us.

  • SerpicoBCSerpicoBC Registered User regular
    Looks that way. Is there an email setting somewhere in there I need to enable?

    Clicking on the settings "tab" in profile leads to a "not available in beta" page. So if there is a setting somewhere, I have no clue where.

    I've not had any bounced emails, all have reported delivered, so they're going some where :) It's some thing I monitor daily because bounced emails kill my rating and effect my status with the service I use.

    @serpicoBC Have you checked your spam and/or whitelisted [email protected]? You should have received an email around Feb 1st, give it or take a day for timezones. You can also PM your email and I'll make sure it's spelt correctly in the DB but some one is getting your trade offers!

    Sabrewulf and COMBO BREAKER Pins arrives today, along with a second Valentines Day Pin I ordered.

    The Pins were shipped via UPS and the bubble wrap did a much better job protecting the Pins backings than the USPS bubble envelope did.

    Included pictures comparing UPS (left) vs USPS (right) for the Valentines Pin Limited Edition with gold crown backing, as well as the two new KI Pins with the Jago Pin for size comparison.

    I just tested this with another user and they got my offer and I got theirs, so maybe it is serp's email?

    Hey All, I noticed a few people pages back said they were still trying to sort out Pin Pals for PAXes they aren't attending. My group and I go to East and Prime every year, so would be happy to pick up sets for anyone, just shoot me a PM and we can sort it out.

  • fishfishmonkeyhatfishfishmonkeyhat Freelance Pin Man Newcastle, AustraliaRegistered User regular
    That's nice of you Dave, pm sent. :)
