    I wouldn't be surprised if they were trying to gauge how many pins to order for the first 6 months.

    I am disappointed I won't have it for East to show off and demand 5% off at the merch store...

    Also, Club PA pins won't be out before East. Before Prime? Yes. All from the stream today.

    Oh, good to know. I assumed it would be sooner. Hard to guess sometimes, when they'll ship. Like, the 15th Anniversary Pins shipped that day, but it's good to know these will take longer. I know some people have gone a little crazy camping their letterboxes for pins. Right, @Ayefkay? ;)

    Don't joke about that, man. Its a serious condition for which there is no cure!

    Question about staff pins, will anyone be collecting a 'full' Staff set as part of a 2014 collection? Im thinking i'll just go for Kenneth. I guess this goes for any pin they decide to reuse. Like if Valentines pin gets used again next year would you buy it again?

    I'm going for one of every pin. The year variants don't matter to me since I'll never flip my pins over and lovingly rub the year stamp. They're all mounted up already.

    Yes you will. You know you will. You will caress those dates reverently like an archaeologist in a freshly unearthed tomb. Then you will mourn silently because you are missing the variant, whereupon you curl into a ball and rock back and forth for an hour.

    Otherwise why wouldn't you alternate between the two tiers...

    Because 5 bucks a month to support your favorite website isn't unreasonable and the pin is just a bonus? I think there are plenty of folks upping at 30 bucks who don't care about the pin (or merch) at all, and likely some pinthusiasts who will re-up at 30 bucks without caring about the second pin.

    Ask for more details about the pin bag or whatever it was.

  • KamelonKamelon Canberra, AustraliaRegistered User regular
    @PedroAsani

    Could you please ask:
    • When will we see the upcoming East pins?
    • Is the Automata pin part of a set?
    • When is the Automata pin/set coming out?
    • Any more info about the non-Microsoft Pin Ultimate game, whatever it is? Or when we could expect it?
    • Are there any plans for the Exclusive Club PA merch to include any pins?
    • Has Mike listened to the Pinny Pal podcast? What did he think of it?
    • Will there be an episode (or more) of PA The Series episode featuring pins?
    • As a Club PA perk, can we see some pages of Mike's pin sketch book? And/or high-res pin art downloads?

    Are we going to see any repeat pins at PAX East?

    Personally I assume The Behemoth's will all be the same (Plus little guy and maybe more?), but I'm curious if ones like the Wildstar pins will show up again.

    It's on the way to @Manic2k and should show up on the USPS tracking website in 24 hours. He will then put them into smaller packages, so make sure he has your address. This applies to @mayoukoneko and @ayefkay

    Sorry to be a Combo Breaker,
    UPDATE!
    I've been absent for a while now, (256 posts since my last visit) I have been run off my feet.
    the Kemper trophy was coming along really well. Was, that is.
    I'll upload the pics of the progress at some point, after around 20 hours of work (lately during lunch breaks at work)
    I finally had a chance to pour some scrap bronze into the mould. which performed a particular reaction i have never before seen.
    The cast caught FIRE!
    right after the first drop of metal touched the cast, the molten metal started to burn bright white and green burning a hole through the mould and into the workbench. the rapid cooling that followed cause the mould to split in half.

    so yeah that sucked.
    the downside is the Kempy award trophies won't be ready for east
    (TT_TT) I cry your pardon good PinPals
    then upshot is, I will still be running a small competition with other trophies for east
    and should have the Kempy awards ready for Prime

    If you're going to ask any questions unrelated to pins... any information on Stripsearch DVD's or a Season 2?

    If you're going to ask any questions unrelated to pins... any information on Stripsearch DVD's or a Season 2?

    From the streams the other day:

    DVDs are in the pipeline. Jerry had to write the blurb for the back recently, which means the covers are likely at the press by now. The DVDs will be coming soon.

    No word on a Season 2 yet. The reason is they haven't decided on the format for the nightly Showdown. They want it to have the same unknown quantity as the first season, because a large part of the challenge was not knowing what you were facing unless you had survived previously. Obviously anyone who watched the first season now knows what to expect, so they are changing it. But they don't know how yet, so they aren't ready to start the casting calls.

    Hey all. It's been awhile. I'm stopping in to make sure I'm removed from any pin groups I might still be in. The last couple months have been really rough for me financially, so I've decided to sell all my pins including the DLC and Hanna/15th pins. :( The squirrels have NEVER been louder, and I am sure I will regret this in a couple months when my finances have settled a bit. But I gotta do what I gotta do. I wanted to say that you lot are awesome, and this was one of the coolest communities I've ever been in. Much love and all the luck in all your pindeavors.

    Weary Traveler, don't bow out just yet! You may have given up the pins you have, but it's never too late to get back in! Even if you're not going for completion, just hanging out and swapping for particular pin designs that you really want is still a great time.

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