    Just so it's clear I edited a Santa hat on to my avatar.

    With the snow there I look like a chef.

    Fiance called to tell me my case arrived. Problem is im away for a few more days taking care of some family stuff.

    I missed out on the DSB sale and was sad so I bought some more Armadeaddon blind boxes. I didn't want to wait a month for them to ship to Canada like before so I decided to splurge on the more expensive 3-5 business day shipping.

    Today was day 8 and I was thinking they wouldn't arrive before my trip this week... but they did arrive today and with a bonus.

    Happy Armadeadvent day 21! Only 3 more days to go (and not to worry, my blind boxes came in, so I'll have to string everybody along with those too :P). Today's box was labeled "Apple" and I got...
    Blood Rage FF and .. (what I suspect will be my last) Polaroid

    On Armadeadvent day 22 I opened the box labeled "Giraffe" and I got...
    Splatter Frank and Splatter Tycho

    My pins arrived a few days ago, but I was in Tasmania taking care of some family business. Had quite a few boxes arrive, including from my secret santa, some board games I'd ordered, and my Armadeaddon case. And with it I got

    2x Splatter Charles
    1x Splatter Frank
    2x Splatter Galahad
    1x Sad Zombie Tycho
    5x Splatter Gabe
    1x Splatter Tycho
    4x Blood Rage
    4x Splatter Annarchy
    1x Zombie Juice
    1x Skeleton Jim
    2x Polaroid

    Sadly, I didn't get a Cinabon Gabe and I really want one. I'm willing to trade - please message me.

    Happy Armadeadvent day 23, the penultimate day in a psychological torture experiment on patience. Today I opened a box labeled "One" and I got...

  • brainiac744brainiac744 Registered User regular
    I was a good boy and opened the last box on schedule ;)

    On the final day of the Armadeadvent I opened the box labeled "$3" (a number well under what I spent getting all these pins :P ) and I got...
    Splatter Frank and Skeleton Jim

    I believe that you can expect a spreadsheet with the unscrambled pin haul posted up at some point from my sister - I think she's been deobfuscating as I post :)

    I love these pins so much, but there are only 3-4 I really want. Having a tough time pulling the trigger on blind boxes lately and I don't have enough pins to trade. Guess I'm up the creek with no paddle again :)

    They would be the 4 on his want list on his lanyard. Gabe, Tycho, FF and Anarchy.

    I'm missing two (the rarest, of course). I know I would get at least one if I got another case, but ugh, it's another case and that's far from cheap.

    Lol, I guess so. If those were the only ones I needed, I definitely wouldn't buy any blind boxes. Those are going to be pretty easy to get.

    Not exactly up a creek, you could trade for them. There are tons of them listed as available on Pinnypals and i'm sure that indicates they will be available at your next years PAXen as well. That is not likely to change anytime soon so still time to acquire some pins to trade for them.

    Are you sure the merch pin isn't before shipping and taxes? I totaled up what you bought and the subtotal was only 82.44. I always assumed it was a subtotal of $100.

    Edit: Yea, just checked and it's based on subtotal.


    Edit Edit: My mistake, you should have gotten one, forgot the shipping receipt lists it as item price.

    Second box arrived today from November purchase, yay for Australia!

    Shipping time is more than made up for by completing my Armadeaddon set, with no less than TWO polaroids, to complete the only one I was missing from my first box set.

    qrmc7ln6yv1w.jpg

    Alt Text is

    Splatter Charles x 3
    Splatter Frank x 2
    Splatter Galahad x 3
    Splatter Annarchy x 3
    Splatter Gabe x 2
    Splatter Tycho x 2
    Blood Rage FF x 4
    Sad Zombie tycho x 1
    Zombie Juice x 1
    Skeleton Jim x 1
    Polaroid x 2 (In back left box and the box in front of that)

    So Complete set, but no bonus Christmas Merch

    Edit: Total order was WELL over minimum merch requirement, Order dated 28th November, sad for no Christmas merch...

    No, the order subtotal was under $100, which is exactly why he didn't receive a Merch 3 pin. The mug, 2 Armas, Xmas, and Enfu = $100.70. You used a CPA discount which brought the total down to $95.66. That's under $100. The reward tiers (including Merch 3) go off subtotal, meaning the $14.60 shipping doesn't count.

    Of course, I didn't even think about the ClubPA discount.

  • Squire_PugSquire_Pug Melbourne, AustraliaRegistered User regular
    So should by USD$200+ order from the 28th of Nov have come with bonus christmas merch??

  • TmLrd04TmLrd04 Tasmania, AustraliaRegistered User regular
    My second case arrived and contained the following:

    Splatter Gabe x 2
    Splatter Tycho x 5
    Blood Rage FF x 1
    Splatter Anarchy x 3
    Splatter Charles x 4
    Splatter Frank x 2
    Splatter Galahad x 2
    Sad Zombie Tycho x 2
    Zombie Juice x 1
    Skeleton Jim x 1
    Cinnamon Roll Gabe x 1

    Super happy with the Cinnamon Roll Gabe as that completes the Armageddon collection :D

    Hey everyone! I've made a short anonymous survey to see how the general community feels about certain topics of Armadeaddon and Blind Box sets as a whole. If you're on Slack or WhatsApp you may have seen me post this link already.

    Feel free to take it here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/VYP29TL

    I'll be posting the results with some analysis once the survey closes in a few days. I've already received about 25 responses from the chat channels and the stats are pretty interesting. Thanks ahead of time if you fill it out :D

    I feel that survey is missing a kind of big question. "How much do you like blind purchasing?". And the followup, "If not, what might make you like it?"
