    It was a little strange to have 2 pins on the back. Guess it has to do with the size of the pin.

    Also easier to stop it spinning.

    I'm surprised there's no general thread elsewhere in the forums about the fuku bags -- given that they're not specific to pinny arcade -- so I guess this should be the place for opening pics.

    Do any of you Washington people have an estimated delivery date of today? Mine isn't till Monday (and I'll be out of town Mon-Wed), so I need some opening pics to tantalize till I can dig into mine.

    Maybe I'm just a starry-eyed optimist, but to me that says that at least one of these babies is going to have a DLC pin in them.

    I'd imagine it's more like Carls, 15th Anniversary, and maybe Valentines and/or MAYBE Hanna.

    At this point, I think they are holding the remaining DLC pins for very specific uses.

    (Says the guy hoping to find one in his bag...)

    Yeah, they're better off being used for CP auctions at this point.



    So since they had L back in stock I ended up buying one.

    If "particularly rare (wink)" refers to the Valentine's Day, that'd be kind of sad.

    I could see them tossing in an Aus 2013 set or two into these bags -- we know some of them still exist in the warehouse.

    I could see them considering CTS and Zombie Tycho "rare" at this point, so why not that one?

    Pins for trade!

    I've got to admit, the particular wording used there did make me think that there might be a miniscule chance of a DLC pin popping up somewhere, hence my Fukubukuro purchase... Seeing as it is the first time they've done this I feel they are a little more likely to throw the kitchen sink at it.

    Also, the bag will be attending PAX with me this year as a swag bag.

    I was thinking the same thing. I should be getting mine tomorrow, if the USPS tracking information is to be believed. I'd love to throw some pics up here.

    Should that post be made in General? There doesn't seem to be a merch-related subforum, which is really a shame.

    Mine arrived quite quickly in Maryland. I only ordered 1 pin and 1 Blind Box though, so easy to pack and ship out. It's so big!

    I just got my New Year pins and it looks like I have a miss print? Did anyone else get one of these?

    Actually i see a few differences on yours, gabes eye is missing on the right obviously, but tychos finger on the left is blue, and his hair is a little discoloured. Going to check mine, report back in a little bit

    Good spot, I didn't see the blue finger on the other.

  • AyefkayAyefkay Queensland, AustraliaRegistered User regular

    What a QA fail. The moment they changed to the cheap envelopes all of our backer boards have been showing up bent. They need to fix both issues.

    They do look shocking in that image, think it's the flash as they look great in real life, Just missing an eye.

    I got mine yesterday but I didn't look too closely at them, just picked one out to be mine, one out as a gift, and one as trade fodder. When I get home tonight I'm going to have to take a closer look to make sure they're all okay. :(

    Both NYE backer boards showed up in the mail bent. Moving to the envelopes might have been cost effective for them but now it seems like a regular assurance to get bent merch. I also liked when we used to get our pins in those clear plastic bags.

    Sounds like a plan. Thanks!

    Side Note: The NYE pin does look better in person.

    Honestly, I've given up hope that the backing cardboard will survive the trip to Australia. As long as the pin arrives in good condition, I'll consider it good enough

    I don't expect everything to be perfect but I think we had better success when the pins were shipped in boxes, and were in the plastic sleeves.

    I don't usually have any problems with my stuff, maybe it's because in order to make the aus shipping worthwhile I usually order enough to get a little pillow packed box instead of a bubble mailer?
