    Unfortunately this seems to be the surest way to get the dlc pin now. PA weren't kidding when they say limited prints, so unless you got it through the kickstarter, ebay purchase from someone quitting collecting is your best bet, highly unlikely anyone will trade it unless they somehow have more than one...

    on ebay selling, for this pin in particular, because of the rarity, its hard to accuse of scalping, much different to the floods after a pax

    I think the DLC will continue to go down in price. These things go in predictable cycles, and we control the price.

    I see that they are going for about 1k not 4 or 5 like it was before.

    Yeah everyone of them has sold for less. I bet the next one sold in 8 days breaks the 1K streak.

    I feel like the price is only going to jump as more people come into the community. People WILL want them if they truly desire a complete set.

    Is there anyone out there with a complete collection of Disney pins?

    It just seems too unlikely to imagine someone with a complete disney pin set...Unless this person started from the beginning, goes to disneyland A LOT, and or is LOADED with expendable income

    totally respect and would be jealous of this person if he/she exists, though

    Short of either being a big shot at Disney or working in the park for nearly all of your life, I highly doubt an entire complete set exists. From what I hear, they made some pretty rare ones.

    There are official Disney pins with print runs in the tens.

    Yep. So unless you are on the board of Disney, I doubt you got em all.

  • AyefkayAyefkay Queensland, AustraliaRegistered User regular
    I like to believe a full set exists buried with Walt Disney. Every time a new pin comes out, someone adds it to the pile.....

    It's completely plausable....right?

    Restarting the Community thread before every PAX isn't the worst idea ever. People might be put off by 50 odd pages, so a fresh start is a Good Thing.

    On that note, the FAQ has been sent out. I shall update when I have answers back. I think with Mike being in Spokane this weekend it might be a day or two.

    So... this was over a week ago and still no answer? Usually Mike is much more prompt than that. I know he might just be super-busy but my inner conspinacy theorist hopes there's some big pin news (East? Automata?) coming out soon that he wanted to announce on the site first.

    I can dream, can't I?

    I sent a copy to Jamie, she is working with Mike, Brian et al. to get them answered. More of the questions are in depth about the processes, and so will take longer to come back.

    Its the 15th. Pedro just has to do double grills now. FAQ normally and then follow Mike around at Snapdoodle with a livefeed to us asking questions.

    Simply, a bunch of people turn up and play games. There is some trading, some talking and usually some cookies. I will endeavour to do a proper Pinquisition, although I try and be mindful that a lot (a lot) of people are vying for Mike's time, and I felt bad trying to ask a whole ream of questions when there was a queue of people waiting to say thanks and ask their own stuff. Maybe this time I can get a few minutes at the end.

    This makes a lot of sense. Thanks Pedro. I knew they'd be hard at work.
    I didn't realise the questions were so in depth. It'll be exciting to hear back :D

    The inclusion of the PAX salute guy is a bit weird in my mind. I thought he was specific to Prime as that was a response to the PAX Pox outbreak.

    Either way they all look good.

    I always viewed it as a move towards a universal PAX gesture, to prevent future outbreaks.

    What a cool group of pins, and I'm glad to see them breaking away from having a Gabe and Tycho pin included in each PAX set. Can't wait to nag a PAX East buddy to pick these up for me!

    The first pax to introduce the iron guard salute was actually PAX East 2010. That was the first pax after the megapox.

    Hot Dog Fairy!! Clearly the best pin, and my new favorite.

    My train of thought is the same as Vid's. I always thought the salute was just to be used forever and always at PAX, but it originated because of something that happened at Prime.

  • Jake CappsJake Capps San Antonio, Texas(Lackland AFB)Registered User regular
    Well my fear that the East Logo pin would be a retread came true. I don't know what they should do. I wonder if the other PAXs will just have a number change? Other than that the rest look great. This is the best Kemper pin yet IMO.

    The PAX Logo doesn't change quickly, but it has changed a bit over the years. I would guess the Pin will reflect whatever the log is, since it is the "Logo" pin. Question is, will the logo change more often.

    It has the logo within the Australia continent.

    Also, what comic is hot dog fairy from? I thought it was a reference to the hot dog machines at the convention center but I'm really not sure.

    I love the logos, but if they're essentially the same every year they're going to get boring and fast.

    My understanding from talking to Mike at PAX Aus is that in one of the Make-A-Strips an audience member asked them to add a hotdog fairy and it went down so well that it's been a staple ever since, often reappering in Make-A-Strip comics. Does that sound right to people?

    What I like about this set is the PAX references with the hotdog fairy and iron guard salute. I know a drop bear pin is slated for PAX Aus 2014 (and is from the Make-A-Strip at PAX Aus 2013) so I hope this year's trend is PAX sets with PAX references.

    This set may get my non-collector fiancée to buy a pin set this year. She thinks the Kemper pin is, and I quote, "SO cute." I have to agree.

    I was confused by the salute pin at first, as I didn't know the history, but now that I know, it's actually kind of cool. I've only been to PAX once, and that was just one day last year, but I love how it has its own mini-culture. It's nice to see that celebrated in the pins.

    I hope the logo gets changed up somehow in coming years. Honestly, given the dearth of East '13 sets and the rarity of last year's East logo in particular, this is going to make it kind of annoying for people hunting for '13 logo trades at conventions. Because they look so similar, it's going to be hard to pick out a '13 logo on a lanyard.

    Personally a fan of the yearly logo pins, I don't think they need to change. It might seem lame-ish now but when you have a lot of them in a row, it becomes a pretty cool thing to display.

    This will be a super unpopular opinion haha (and it would negatively effect me!) but I would take it as far as removing it from the core set and tying it to actually attending that PAX, like you have to show your ticket and you only get one...now remember I prefixed it with super unpopular :smile:

    Welcome Gojira_Dude and DarthMonachus!

    You'll have a great time with the pins at East. DarthMonachus, if you're keen to get this set and only there on Sunday it seems to be the consensus that hitting up the merch booth sooner than later is a good idea. Core sets may sell out.

    After East it'll be good to hear about your experiences as new pin pals :)

    Anyway, welcome again. The Pin Pal community is one of the friendliest around. We don't bite (but the brain squirrels might).

    I was really hoping to make it to PAX East but I won't be able to this year. I am planning on making it to Prime, though. I may have to employ a mule to collect East goodies.

    This is the first year that I can actually afford to make it to either. I'm really looking forward to it.

    The hotdog fairy has been in the Make-A-Strip for a while, I am going to have to comb the archive and find the first appearance.
