    Some of my DSBs finally arrived from my thanksgiving and December orders. Box 1 was from thanksgiving, while 2 to 9 are from a December order.

    Box 1: Bride of Frankenstein Anne, PNW Tycho

    Box 2: Coffee Kemper, Iron Guard Stance

    Box 3: Pinny Arcade Logo, Kemper Crockett

    Box 4: Brian Sunter, Lookouts 4

    Box 5: Acquisitions Inc Logo, PAX Aus 10th Year

    Box 6: Elf Tycho, Flesh Reaper (2013)

    Box 7: Viking, Dropbear

    Box 8: Santa Gabe, Merch 2

    Box 9: Coffee Kemper, Emu

    Overall pretty happy, got quite a few pins I didn't have and have been looking for. Unfortunately no blind merch or Ellie pin (my favourite pin), but weirdly I am still waiting for some more DSBs from both orders so I may get lucky. I don't really need another blind merch (I already got one last year) but it would probably help with obtaining some of the rarer pins I am chasing.

    I ordered a Fukubukuro and a single DSB this time around, figured I'd ordered enough DSBs for a while :P

    Some really pins there.

    Pretty sure they're all pins, dude.

    [AUS] I foolishly had my December DSB order shipped to my office, which was of course closed until this week. So I only just got my December DSBs this morning and...

    At last! Five Twisps! My dreams have been answered - I can at last start that pin cattery I've been longing for. I'm 50/50 with the loot - should be able to set up some nice trades but overall seems like it was a pretty bland draw compared to some others. Still.....pins!

    I forgot to post but I got a DSBM in one of my boxes. The rest of the pins weren't inspiring, the only non-fodder was a KI Thunder pin, which I was happy with.

    Personally for me to keep DSBs interesting, I'd like to see a whole set of 6-12 pins or so that are randomly distributed within DSBs. Sort of like an Arma but no set arma box, just mixed in to normal DSBs.

    Arma was cool but it just felt "over" very quickly.

    You know... I was thinking about the Age of Empires Anubis pin and why I haven't seen it around recently and I thought that perhaps there are less rares in the mix this round due to the fact that this is the second DSB since a PAX? I would imagine that those rares traded to staffers or vendors at Prime would have have mostly run through more or less. Since we horde these to trade at PAXen, I can imagine that the major turnover in supply happens then.

    @sixty I think I got all your Gabe 2.0 pins! No DSBM for me though.

    This is the second time I've missed these Secret Boxes! I feel so defeated. :(
    What is the best way to keep track and not miss out on this for a 3rd time?

    Follow @Retnus on Twitter, Brian Sunter is the one who posts when the DSB boxes go on sale.

    Also if you're in the Slack chat, we talk about them as soon as they're announced. That's how I find out so much since I don't check Twitter enough

    Also, if you're not already, sign up for the Gazelle newsletter. They usually post the date & time that they will go on sale. It is on the front page of PA. r3pv1mojq56o.jpeg

    Seconded all the suggestions, especially the Gazelle. I also have Twitter alerts for @retnus turned on so I get a text and notification whenever he posts. Sometimes it's some nonsense about soccer and I get all excited for nothing, but when it's something useful about pins it's really handy.

    I might hold on to this one :) This is actually the second Hearthstones pin I've got in a blind box. I traded the first one at the staff table at PAX Aus last year - didn't realise that it was an in-demand pin!

    I know the odds are low, but that might be the exact pin you traded to them :P

    Not to rain on parades, but at East 15 they were getting a bunch of Hearthstones back.

    received the new years set of blind boxes, had all of them already but adding to the fodder collection for AUS this year i guess.5u3jy562l1mg.jpg
    shame no blind merch, it seemed every second person was getting one, but i guess that's the fun part about blind boxes and collecting. looking forward to when I can get another set.

    That's what i'm hoping, i have a few other kempers, and i'm not fussed about the cat. I gave two away at PAX AUS just to help other people starting out for nothing in return (they didn't have anything to trade for them at the time), I think it was the coffee kemp and the baby kemp, it was a great feeling as I know how many people just love those god damm cats!

    East Kemper is OG, that's why I love him so much. First Kemper is best Kemper.

    Pins for trade!
