    Thanks for the inspiration everyone. With the Mario set due in my mailbox soon and the new Ac Inc blind boxes looking rad, I really need to make display my next project. Heck, I have the original DLC pin and it's sitting in a drawer right now!

    So like last year, I got 100% of the PAX West pins and then traded for the core sets and poly's for the other 3x shows.
    Went ahead and designed another poster since last years turned out so well and got good reviews from you fine folks: https://forums.penny-arcade.com/discussion/comment/34830826/#Comment_34830826

    Waiting to print it out and get it all put together but thought I would post the design for thoughts/opinions.

    I know the resolution isn't high enough for you to read it and such, but that's fine, with last year's display you get the idea.

    12/9/16: Poster came in last night. Photo doesn't do it justice. Great quality and shine to it. Will put it together sometime this weekend.

    Nice. Where'd you get the art from?

    I wanted to doing something like that for the Arma pins, but all the art available was too low rez.

    My newest pin display. The wall hanging is from Etsy so I can't take credit for that. wk1rql1qb1m7.jpg

    I just ordered one of these, so review soonish.

    EDIT: Voting on displays I see these are probably the same ones @Ajaxon posted a few years back.

    I use similar cases for my collection. You can see my "Framed" pic on PinnyPals. I have 6, but only show my favorite case :P I get my cases from Amazon. They are expensive but great! If you value your collection as much as I do, this is an awesome way to display it!

    Check out my lanyard and let's trade ;) https://www.pinnypals.com/pals/Devereaux

    I'm curious and interested to know people thoughts on best backing colour and material for pin displays.
    I will be covering a cork backing with something, likely felt, (at the moment that test frame is black felt), but would love to know what people think is the best backing colour and material based on their experiences.

    I think it depends on the display. If it is specific to a certain PAX than the color of the show always looks great (Prime/Blue, East/Red, AUS/Yellow). Other than that, personal preference, depends on the room, blah blah blah.

    Zelda next to Mario. Need to get all these things on the wall eventually...
