    Took a bit of a gamble by only buying two boxes as I only wanted the Annarchy pin. Got the package today and indeed got her along with a Gabe and two Galahads. Success!

    Day 2 of the armadeadvent calendar means another box gets opened.
    I got Splatter Frank (a second one), and Skeleton Jim
    Today's box is labeled "Democracy" - a very freedom-loving label indeed.
    Day one of the aramadeadvent calendar (copyright, trademark, all rights reserved fishfishmonkeyhat) has now happened, and my 2 cases have been sufficiently randomized.

    Day 1, I got Splatter Tycho and Splatter Frank.

    For you spreadsheet people, I had somebody put random labels on the boxes for me, so at the end I can reconstruct the box and not ruin all the statistics.
    (also random question - should I do 24 more posts - one for each day or just edit everything back into this one?)

    Which label was it? I need to know, for... science.

    Yesterday's label was "Thirty"

    That polaroid post is a little loose as well. I guess they all are.

    Opened my boxes today. Girlfriend and I got 8 boxes and between us got everything except Frank, Jim and Cinnabon Gabe.

    The first two boxes I opened both contained Splatter Tycho and Polaroid.

    what do you want for free? GAWD!

    what would you like for a polaroid and splatter tycho? Dont think I have anything on your want list.

    I have extras of everything, but I need a cinnamon gabe (obviously, I do not have an extra one of these).

    What are the current guesses on the run size of the Polaroid and cinnamon pins?

    Spreadsheet trends lined up with the total number of boxes.

    Cinnamon Roll Gabe is 1/50, Polaroid is sitting solidly at a 1/33. Total number of cases was 750 (18000 individual pins), meaning 540 polaroids and 360 cinnagabes.

    I super lucked out! After my first two boxes, I broke down and bought five more. After those, I was still missing Annarchy, Charles and all the rares except Skeleton Jim and Cinnabon Gabe. I broke down one last time and bought another five boxes. I vowed that any pins I ended up missing, I'd trade for. I ended up getting everything I was missing in this last batch! The whole set in twelve boxes, I feel pretty lucky and so happy!

    So finally got my Armadeaddon pins at the end of last week. It was frustratingly slow to arrive and for some reason I had to pay additional tax on top of it (why Canada?) but here is my haul. You may notice that I have not submitted a photo. That's because my haul was the same as @Ayefkay and his photo was much better. Thanks :)

    I got my Armadeadon Cases today. I got 2. Pictured is what i got in each box top to bottom, left to right. As you can see i got hella lucky. My first case i got 11 of 12. My second Case i got the final pin on the LAST box! I felt the square through the packaging and freaked out! I guess I got 11 of 12 out of each case which is pretty good.

    I'm thinking if you're in the same boat, then it may just be that it takes a long time to get here.

    I used the cheapest postal option (it was the only way to convince my fiancée to part with so much money for the sake of my 'silly pin hobby' so there's no tracking.

    It could be that it takes a month. I know I've ordered things from the US before and it has taken forever to arrive.

    The cheapest option uses a bulk re-shipper. So the re-shipper sits on the packages until it has enough to ship them at a cheap rate. I have received packaged this way from Penny Arcade 4 times, 3 times it took about 3 weeks. The 4th time took about 7weeks.

    TLDR: Cheap shipping can take anywhere between 2 and 7 weeks.

    That is ridiculously helpful to know. I feel infinitely less nervous about it now. I live in a nice area but we have (had, they've since been evicted) dodgy neighbours who aren't beyond pinching things. Especially since our postman just leaves parcels on the stoop leading into the apartment block.

    Based on what we know about pin distribution in cases, I'm tempted to just buy boxes to try to fill out my set....
