    South set: "Welcome home" badge, great idea. the other 3? not great. cowboy gabe is ok at best. Tycho should be wearing an outfit, looks too bland like that. crockett kemper, eh...

    Agreed. Seems like a missed opportunity for a Sand set. Also Davy Crockett died at Alamo but he was from Tennessee. This set seems really phoned in.

    For those who are unaware, the South Set is a call back to a decade old 6 part comic run that occurred during Gabe Actual's Birth. Tycho isn't wearing an outfit because he is The Eye Of The Goddamn Storm.

    Kemper is wearing the Crockett hat because Cute.

    After reading through that strip (which i actually remember now) I have new found apreciation of the south set. Clever, and impressive of their ability to reference decade old comics.

    Also by extension impressed at Pedro's encyclopedic knowledge of the comic.

    I was rather upset that people didn't get the reference, but I kept my mouth shut because I wanted everyone else to hate this pin set so I could buy all of them.

    So, what time do you guys plan on getting up to wait in line for the LE South pin?

    They could put a turd on a stick as a pin to collect and I would still buy it.

    Well CAH put in a box and I bought two...

    Speaking of which, anyone stateside interested in a box of BS from CAH. I don't think Customs would let them in to Australia!

    At Prime they had 1200 LE shields, distributed across each day by 350/350/350/150. I got up on Sunday and got in line for the merch booth around 7:30am. They opened up a little bit earlier than 9, and we were at the front by 9:30 getting our pins. South is going to have 1500 of the pins for three days, so I'm guessing the distribution will be 600/600/300 (WAY more than the Prime LE). I assume South will be considerably more relaxed than Prime is, too, so you should be more than fine getting in the line at 8 or 8:30.

    ALL A RUSE TO MAKE SURE YOU GET A PIN. I SEE IT NOW.

    Really though, yea, I was thinking that it'll be a little more laid back and whatnot.

    Since this is a new PAX I doubt anyone knows. At East/Prime, you had to stand outside until 8 and then they let people go into the lines for the mercy and into the Queue room line. At Aus, they let us go inside and go to the line as early as we wanted to wait. I'm guessing that this will be more like East and Prime where they start a line outside to begin with….but being that I don't know how the convention center is set up and if there is a place outside to start a line, in addition to this being the first PAX for South, we won't know until Friday.

    Main entrance will be from Market Street, next to the river. Those will be the first doors open. Once those doors open you should be able to head right to Merch Lite and queue up outside it until they start selling the goodies. Thats the current plan as I know it, we shall see how it stands up to reality.

    So had a bit of time to properly digest (obsess over) the newly announced pins and im kinda liking them more. I've noticed some things that i wanna mention. Putting them all next to eachother they seem to share a similar warmer colour palette. Mainly, orange, red and brown are featured in most pins, the state of decay and baron blade pins use shades of green and purple that are darker than normal, The only exception being MtG Ugin, which is a bright light blue. Do i have something here? am i crazy/delirious? Its kinda late here so im going to look at my pins tomorrow and bulk them by what pax theyre from. Could be intentional, maybe prime pins have more blue, east red, aus yellow.

    No, but the colour palette is generally dictated by the individual IP. I'm glad that the Snakemoose Ugin Pin is blue, since the WotC have mostly been red, orange and black so far. A little green thrown in, but if you were building an MTG display it would look pretty samey until now. Hopefully they have a few other colours in the next Pin. Something in a yellow or a purple, maybe?

    I think the only time colours are co-ordinated for the PAX is for actual PAX Pins. 3rd party and even most PA stuff is going be the colour it is because that's just how it is. What I'm hoping for is that as production runs increase in size it will become cost effective to have a wider colour palette for the collection. Using the same red over and over makes financial sense, but standardising colours does get noticeable after a while. If you do notice that kind of thing.

    That's exactly what I'm planning to do, maybe after the 2015 round of PAXen is through, and that blue Snakemoose* is going to make the display look a lot better. I think part of the problem, if I remember my MTG correctly, is they focus on one planeswalker at a time and they haven't gotten around to the blue magic ones. Snakemoose is technically colorless. I think we're probably due for a blue planeswalker since we've had 2x Chandra (Red), Elspeth (White), Garruk (Green/Black), Sarkhan Vol (Red/Green) and now Ugin (Colorless). So blue would be good, maybe a pure black mana character, because that's where the purple tends to come in IIRC.

    I do hope this happens because the WotC pins are some of my favorites and a MTG display would be awesome. I just wish Elspeth didn't have that green emblem behind her. *shudders*

    *Cowpuppy, stop trying to make Snakemoose happen. It's not going to happen.

    Pins! Pins everywhere!

    the magic community is of the opinion that the next planeswalker will be a new Nicol Bolas who is black

    I feel underwhelmed just because there doesn't seem to be as much new as the two main PAX.

    South set, LE South, Broodhollow. I might try to trade for a few cowboy Gabes. Maybe grab the Undead Lab pins since I wanted to check out Moonrise anyway.

    Worth pointing out that this pin offering equals the amount of pins we've had at PAX Aus for the first two years combined! ;-)

    Is anyone thinking of actually organizing a pre MTG pin met up so the pinatics here could play against each other and pool their tickets to maximize the pins cost/games. I know some of the members mentioned something like this in the earlier post. If so is there a common time ppl plant to meet up at the tabletop area.

    In the community events you will find more information.
    It starts at 6:30 with most of us.

    To those of you going to South, have a great time and stock up on as many of those non-purchase types as there's a bunch of us who can't go and will definitely want to trade our Prime/Aus/East extras for them!

    Curious if anyone here will be/is using a comm app (i.e. GroupMe, WhatsUp etc....or twitter) to keep everyone updated on the status of pins or meetups to get pins. I know there's a pin trading on Sat in the evening, but I'm thinking more for chance if Trendy has a flash sale (unlikely, but one can hope) and its limited to the first 25 ppl or something like that. I think they had a WhatsUp app in PAX Aus to keep the pinatics updated of anything special.
