    Seems to me Jamie's Sailor Moon pax outfit would have been a better choice.

    :P

    I'm intrigued and wish to subscribe to your newsletter.

    Thanks for posting the video Beker. Didn't get to watch this as it was happening. Pretty entertaining to see it

    I was in the chat, if I had heard them talking Pin stats I would have been spewing numbers.

    Edit: They spotted me even though my bids were too slow. Sadly I couldn't respond, I was chat only due to bandwidth issues whilst out and about.

    I was tossing out numbers, but they all went by in a blur; your SN may garner just a tad more attention than my own however.

    So the auction that happened last night was not for the pin I donated. (Although it was awesome. :) ) It looks like they've updated the prize page for it to have an actual timeframe for the giveaway. It now says 10:00AM PST, Nov 19th - 10:00PM PST, Nov 19th. So somewhere during that time frame, it will be given away. For larger donation drives they usually tweet a bit ahead of time, but no guarantees on that. (Also, not 100% sure it will be a donation drive, but that's the most likely outcome)

    If they knew you were the one that gave one of their Desert Busers his shield at Prime that might have helped :-)

    I'm pretty sure my friend Sean scalped that bear during a party with the LRR people years and years ago. Funny to see it still kickin around :)

  • torgietorgie Registered User regular
    Yep, here he is! This is the night we lost the hat.

    Looks like we've blown this case WIDE OPEN boys.

    This makes the 5K for a full set last year seem like a steal.

    $6k (ahem)

    I have it on good authority ;)

  • QumadenQumaden World's Mightiest Mortal Registered User regular
    So seeing how big the drive for donations those pins garnered makes me feel super selfish that I finally got my own doc pin and plan to be buried with it. That coupled with knowing that bear hat exists, and Jaime in a sailor moon costume makes me realize that there is an awesomeness glass ceiling that I can never shatter.

    I hope everyone can tune in and give something to Child's Play for a shot at @Jormungandr‌'s amazing donation.

    I really wish PAX East tickets had not gone on sale the same week as Desert Bus. All of my disposable income is indisposed right now.

    I was going to have a non Pin related donation for the CPC Dinner this year but I'm back in the UK and unable to organise it in time. Maybe next year...<sobs>

    So it's nearing the end of the 19th in oz land. What time is it in pinny prime?

  • Geometric CubeGeometric Cube Registered User regular
    It is like 2:24 am 19 November right now. 7 and a half hours left before it is available.

  • Geometric CubeGeometric Cube Registered User regular
    So from what I understand about it, you have to donate 150 in order to get put in the drawing? Just making sure I'm reading that correctly.

    No, that definitely isn't true. I think the $150 in the description is just that it was from the $150 donation level on the penny arcade DLC kickstarter originally.

    As far as I can tell they haven't given any more details on how/when the pin will be given away today. Once there's more information, I'm sure someone will post here. (I am at work right now, and only able to partially pay attention, so I might miss it, but I trust the internet at large is monitoring and will post here.)

    Generally the price is set by the driver. A lot of the giveaways this year have been $5.xx where the driver set the xx values, but we'll see.

    Additionally example: The Dark Link sword is going for $8.87 (and multiples of that value) right now.

    Oh I see, so it still isn't available yet? Even though it is now within the listed time?

    Yup, that's right. Donation drives usually last for about an hour. We know they will do this drive at some point within the current 12 hour shift today ending at 10pm PST. We don't know when it will start for sure yet. Sometimes they give warning before the drive begins, and sometimes they just start it. During the timeframe of the donation drive, it works like a raffle. To use the example @orthancstone gave above for the dark link sword they did this for recently, if you donate 8.87, you get one "ticket" in the raffle at the end. 17.74 (twice 8.87) will give you two entries in the raffle at the end, etc.

    I'm sure someone will post here once we have a more specific timeframe and $$ amount for the DLC pin. I will try if I'm watching the stream at the time (and I'll try to be).

    I'm interested to see if this brings in more money than the Dark Link Sword, especially since they are going to keep it open for so long.

    Make sure you're all registered correctly for a donation for a donation account as well so they can announce your name if you win :biggrin:

    IT'S HAPPENING! Donation drive started a few minutes ago. The amount is $10.10, and it goes from now until 7:00PM PST (so for just about 2 hours from the time of this post). To donate go to desertbus.org/donate. At the end they will pick a random winner from people who have donated. Each $10.10 that has been donated has a chance to win it. So if you donate $20.20 you have two entries in the raffle, etc.

    Ya I know.... Its like people will trade in upwards of 60+ pins for it too (Mine should be arriving tomorrow... FEDEX NEEDS TO HURRY D: )

    Also dropped a few bucks in to get my name in the hat, if by some miracle I do win it, I actually have a good idea what I would like to do with it too
