    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.

    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!

    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...

    I might have taken a turn for the 'integrating pins into functional' and made fan pulls.

    What a great idea! They make wonderful Christmas decorations too, if that's your thing.

    Here's my little collection. I really only started getting into pins at PAXAus 2016, even though I had a few from previous conventions.

    I liked the idea of shadow boxes people have posted here, and found a cheap one at my local Kmart. The back isn't fixed on properly yet, which I am fine with as I want to add to this current bunch before hanging it it somewhere in our new place.

    When I have more time, I think I would like to do a display with my favourite PA strip inside, but I guess I'd have to pick a favourite strip and that is very very hard!

    As you can see from the random pins in the foreground, I am in the midst of prepping for PAXAus 2017. See some of you out there ^_^

    I'll have to have a look at those ones next time I'm near a Kmart @SachiiSez. I'm yet to find a local distributor that has a decent shadow box. Speaking of which...
    I just ordered one of these, so review soonish.

    A few weeks back I finally got around to adding my pins to my 2 new boxes.

    They're smaller than my original case but allow access without having to take them off the wall and undo a bunch of screws. Original on the left:

    MbY09CCl.jpg


    The one issue I have with these ones is that the backing foam doesn't seem thick enough for the pin posts to go all the way into (which seems like a weird issue to have). To fix this I used some more of the pin board I used for the staff set box and glued some dark green felt to it. The board pre-felt:

    53ZWupDm.jpg


    The second box I ordered was actually the same model but it can also display challenge coins. The only difference is it has some slots on the sides (that you can't see when it's closed) for the coin "shelves" (comes with a bunch of them for future expansion as well). Since it's basically the same box for the same price and the coin holders slide right out I'd recommend just getting that one if you think you might ever consider a display that could include coins in the future.

    So anyway, final products, left is pins I want to display, right is my PAX AUS pins/merch box:

    hObsX4ih.jpg


    Less is more with these cases, so only the special pins (to me, anyway) made it in. The same company makes smaller ones about the size of the staff case I made before, so I'll be ordering a couple of those in the future.
    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'd usually just go black felt, but I tried a dark green for the main case (hard to see in the photo). If I was doing it again I'd probably go a lighter green. Not sure if I'm happy with the yellow felt in the AUS case; the pins blend into it a bit too much. Maybe a light green would have been better for that as well. Next time I have to expand it to accommodate more pins I might try that out.

    I've set up a few of the collections into black matte shadow boxes. More TLC is needed and I'm waiting on the last pin to complete the KI set.
