    I don't think they would do that - they might, however, allow for more than 2 trades a day. But, maybe they won't.

    we will also have 2 staff sets to finish off

    I wonder if we could argue for a '2 for 1' deal, since Aus hasnt had that chance to get the old set, maybe we could trade one and get both pins from each staff member?

    Theres a reason I ordered 4 sets of Lookouts prior to Aus ;)

    Can only wish for a 2for1 deal tho I think that might rile up our American colleagues ;P

    Haters gonna hate. I wouldn't be mad at at, trying to do two years worth of trading in three days would be kinda rough.

    Designated pin trading area should make it easier. :-)

    Anyone willing to pick me up the 2014 Aus Pax Pin Set? I will cover shipping costs and probably include a bit of compensation on top. Let me know!

    PAX Prime attendee since 2008.

    Another year of Prime gone by... commence the struggle!

    We can only hope. Need it to be soon otherwise our US pals wont have enough time to send us money for their orders (if you include time for the funds to clear from paypal to our banks).

    Paying double or triple on eBay for AUS pins is not really something I look forward to. I just dropped $150 on a Aus Kemper and yeah.... don't really want to do that again.

    I don't know, I think AUS is the exception to this rule since it is the least accessible out of all the Pax conventions. Besides, the longer you wait the less pins in circulation which drives up the cost; supply and demand. I have no idea how much the AUS pin set went right after the convention but you would be lucky if you could secure all 4 pins for under $300.

    This. People going there with pins from the US will make the Aussies go mad.

    I have a theory that there'll be a bunch of people who went to PAX Aus last year bringing their Aus pin sets to the show this year. They probably don't know about Ebay prices or rabid forums of pin collectors. I'm looking forward to bringing a few Prime 2013 sets to the show this year and picking up as many Aus 2013 pins as I can.

    There's plenty of Prime pins floating around in the US, but Aussies won't have seen them much, and the pins look great so hopefully they'll be willing to trade some boring old Aus pins :hydra:

    thats what i plan to do anyway, bring back as many of the old sets as i can to hopefully trade. Guessing tons of people will have the same idea, so we'll see.

    I think i have a problem, guys...

    I have had that same dream more than once. Or that PAX is about to end and I realize I forgot to get my pins.

    We are three weeks and one day out from PAX Aus.
    PAX Prime pins were announced three weeks and one day out from PAX Prime.
    Coincidence? I hope not.
    If we don't get pin news in the next 24 hours I cannot be held responsible for my actions.

    Heh yep I've gone overboard this year. Did a massive fundraiser for Billy G's Cookie Dough.h-billy-g-gourmet-cookie-dough.jpg
    I've managed to get a local sports club to let me use their head chef and industrial ovens, so hopefully wont be too bad....

    Who am I kidding lol, this is going to be chaos.

    We usually have donations from bakers, so if you or anyone else wants to bake, please let me know :)
