    Crap. I forgot about this. I'll get two colored ones. I'll order after work if that's still possible.

    At the moment that shouldn't be a problem, I intend to keep updating the coin tally as I notice orders.
    And once we hit 0 coins, all further orders will go towards a second run of coins that will be placed the day after East ends. Which also means that's the time to advertise the hell out of them so that the second run isn't like 6 coins.

    Oh, hey, ETA: Coins should get to Kiddercorp monday afternoon, and shipping should then start tuesday.

    This may have been answered already so forgive me...

    Will the coins be shipped to you or to each individual that ordered? Thanks!!

    Each individual, it would be monumentally stupid to ship the coins to Canada to then ship them mostly back to the US.

    do they get shipped away right after we order them

  • SutibunRiSutibunRi Montreal, Quebec, CanadaRegistered User regular
    The ETA was for the coins to arrive at Kiddercorp on Monday, and shipping to have started yesterday, I just sent them an email asking if the coins actually made it to them.

    For South, I got an e-mail saying my coins were on the way to me (I was the organizer)...but I don't think anyone else did.

    And the initial run of coins is now sold out!
    Any new orders received Between Now and 11:59pm Eastern time on April 25th. and will be part of a second print run that will probably only ship out ~1 month after East, because I won't ask for another Rush during their busy season.

    Spreadsheet with everyones info was updated in the way they said they'd update it to show which orders were packed/shipped yesterday evening.
    So, everything should be on the way.. or awaiting pickup by USPS.

    Did you receive a conformation email or tracking or anything before the coins came? I'm hoping to have my soon too, but never got a confirmation email.

    I got an email but live in Canada and they seemed to originate in Canton, CT ... aside from the original pickup there have been no updates since Wednesday. I figure they will arrive after we have left for Boston unless they come Monday which I doubt.

    UPDATED: They made it to New York .... no border invasion yet

    I haven't heard a peep either, and I'd like them to arrive on Tuesday or sooner or most of them will need to be mailed out by me to my friends after PAX :( They look beautiful though and are worth the wait.

    I'm not a fan of the lack of detail on the plain coin's claw side. The first picture my fiance sent me (I'm at work) I actually thought there wasn't any detail to the prizes at all. Otherwise they look nice.

    Added: the low relief works great for the color coin, I'm surprised by how much I like it. I don't think it translated well on the plain coin.

    I actually ended getting mine today, just got the mail. So if you're around Buffalo NY you should be too.

    And I agree ironysparkles, not quite as impressed with the plain than as the colored. I ended up getting both and I'm glad.

    Sad to hear that the Low Relief didn't translate so well to the uncolored coins :(
    I'll make sure not to repeat that in the future.

    Minimum order size for another run of coins is 25 coins.

    If anyone who has their coins can get me a more in focus picture of the color coin than Tap Master Cs picture, I'd appreciate it.
    Then I can send a tweet out to the Official Pax twitter feed with pictures and the ordering link.

    Got mine in Boston...

    The quality is fantastic. Kiddercorp does a fantastic job in not only quality but speed.

    Was not expecting the coating over the color coin though. Not an issue but its a little different.

    @SutibunRi 1,000,000,000 thanks for doing all the work on getting these made, printed and ordered. Awesome job. It was a lot of fun being a part of this process.

    Look for me @PAX so I can give you a proper thanks. I'll be in Fallout Vault Dweller Cosplay all weekend. I'll give you (and anyone else here) a few caps in return for the wonderful job you have done (seriously I have like 250 Nuka Cola caps I plan on randomly handing out to people at PAX)


    So .. the theme for PAX 2017???

    Wow they look great based on the pics! Haven't received mine yet, hopefully tomorrow. Can't wait to distribute them to my buddies.

    Just gonna throw this out there one more time... does anybody have a spare 2014 East? *fingerscrossed*

    Also a big shoutout to @SutibunRi for putting this together!

    The coating was just going to be over the side that had color, to protect the paint, but I asked them to put it on both sides, I loved the way the clear coat made some of the sample coins I received last year look.

    Well.. we have a year to figure out how to make VR look sexy on a coin. With the current Vive and Rift delivery issues, 2017 seems more likely to be the year of VR. :hydra:

    Phoenix Challenge Coins apparently have 24 of the 2014 coins left, but they're $25

    Mine arrived and they came out awesome! I got both the color and non-color, and I really like how they're each distinct. I really like the filled in sides for the color coin - adds a cool bit of depth to the Fenway side.

    Mine came in and looks awesome. Anybody know where I can find the 2011 and 2013 coin? I would really love them to complete my set. I see the 2012 on the Phoenix site that I will probably order next week.

    Received my coins today...well...yesterday now :) They look fantastic. I'm more partial to the color coins because you can clearly see the toys in the claw machine vice starring at the regular coin to see what's what. The clear coating on the stadium side gives it more clarity and depth. Awesome job SutibunRi !!!

    So far I think only @aBByNormaL received the email :) The package does have a tracking number though so not sure why they pay for that when they not really relaying it to their customers.

    They are shipping it First Class in a white plastic bubble wrap mailer (at least for me). It took 3 days to get to me. So I think most of the coins should be delivered by Monday the latest.
