    Hmm, I'm thinking about this. I will be on a Southwest flight....which means I SHOULD be able to buy the inflight wifi. Does anyone know if I do that, if I'll be able to get do something like buy this pin mid-flight? :)

    Do they have wifi internet when flying over the ocean? I thought that was only on domestic flights because they can use a satellite connection for internet access.

    Not sure what you mean by THAT Thursday, but check out the handy spreadsheet Zerzhul included above for the times in different regions.

    The Thursday most out-of-staters will be heading down to PAX. Wait, that's the Thursday AFTER this coming one.

    Guess you're flying to Melb a week early?

    Anyway, disregard. ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ

    On a similar vein topic to this, if anyone has a spare Hanna and is coming to Aus, keep it for me to trade please :D

    @Fitzchivalry I will have a few Hannas at Aus :)

    As for the Carl pin, I'm SUPER EXCITED, this just skyrocketed to my favourite pin ever :D

    I think the confusion came up because most interstaters are flying into Melbourne just before the show, so fishfishmonkeyhat assumed the pin was going on sale next week since I said it happens just before my flight.

    He didn't realise that I'm heading to Melbourne a week early for reasons. It's convenient that those reasons mean I'll be up early, ready and eager to place a Carl pin order!

    Oh. I want this pin. I really want this pin. 5pm is obnoxious because I'm usually commuting home from work, but thankfully flextime will allow me to have my butt firmly planted in front of a computer when the pin drops, whether it's at home or at work.

    Yes, Mike says it in the article too just in case anyone needs some more words of wisdom.

    This coming up made me realize I never got my Club PA email with my new codes. Need to look into that. The discount code does change between "seasons" right?

    Yup new code for each period. Plus you get the additional $10 coupon.

    Anyone remember how long it took for the Hanna pins to run out? I'd assume today will be like that.

  • orthancstoneorthancstone TexasRegistered User regular
    20-30 minutes if I remember correctly. Closer to the 20 I believe.

    I'm skeptical about it going that fast, though. Hanna hype brewed for a couple of weeks and had 500 fewer pins. This will likely go fast, but I'm not certain it'll be 20 minutes quick.

    That being said: Refresh early and often. And watch the forums, because one of us will post the direct link promptly for sure.

    I just looked up the old thread and it was 22 minutes when Gabe tweeted that it was sold out.

    I agree it probably won't go that fast, but it will go in under an hour I'm betting.

  • orthancstoneorthancstone TexasRegistered User regular
    Thanks for finding that. I was trying to avoid digging for the tweet in question :o. That would've been a rabbit hole for my attention span...

    and if Carl is anywhere near as popular as Hanna was, he will probably be gone in a few hours.

    If the stuff about Hanna posted above is correct, why would Mike downplay the demand, turning 20 minutes into a few hours? Was there some alternate way to purchase Hanna that lasted longer?

    Well, one metric he could be leaning on would be the 15th Anniversary pin. That was a Limited Edition run of 2000. It took 24 hours to sell out, although most of them went in the first hour. 1200 of them sold in the first 20 minutes.

    I doubt Carl will last hours though. If it gets to the hour mark, it'll be a handful remaining.

    Factor in everyone is in Aus mode and not checking the news as such.

    Hanna went on sale AFTER they did the whole Hanna story Arc on the main page on the comics. That lasted like 3 whole weeks or so. Automata is in a separate tab, and has only been mentioned here and there. While most people KNOW it, it hasn't been shoved in their face like Hanna was(which I'm glad Hanna was and honestly wish this one would be also). That is why I think the demand was so high for Hanna was it was right after the comics when it came out.

    That being said, I'm still guessing around an hour if that.

    I emailed penny arcade to get my club pa discount.
    I told them good luck on shipping out the carl pin.
    This is what I got back from them
    "Hey Anthony,

    We prepped the Carl pins for shipping last night. Our body is ready!"

    I love you to much PA.
