    I received my coins as well and I'm very pleased. Job well done! Thank you!

    Now that I'm home and have held the coins, I wanna not be a jerk haha. I'm glad you had them do the coating on both sides of the color coin, the consistency there is really nice. I do like the color coin, I'm glad I got one for the collection!

    Thanks for making this happen this year, @SutibunRi ! If you're at the pre PAX gaming at the Westin Thursday, let me know and a drink is on me for thanks. PAX weekend is my anniversary, even the year we couldn't make it to the con we managed to get a coin to commemorate. So I really appreciate all the work you put in!

    The Pre-Pax game night is the only place I'm sure I'll be over the weekend.
    Also: Tweet finally went out. hopefully we can get orders for at least 25 of each coin before the 25th, or I'm looking at having ~47 extra coins to make up for the minimum order size!

    How are they coming? USPS or UPS? Was hoping they showed up with the mail today but no dice. Hopefully they will get here tomorrow.

    USPS.
    My coins made it to Canada this morning, but appear to be sitting in customs.

    Ok. I'm in NJ, so seeing others on the east coast getting them last week got me a little concerned. Hopefully they will show soon. Thanks for the reply @SutibunRi :)

    Mine have been out for delivery since Friday, hoping my mailman doesn't pocket it thinking its something valuable given I have Saturday deliveries in my area. You should be good, will probably come tomorrow at the latest.

    Will update with a photo if and when mine comes!

    Woo! Mine apparently showed up at home.
    Now I just need to suffer through the rest of the work day before I can see them.

  • eloelo That guy over there... Smoke stack central, NJRegistered User regular
    No dice today either. Were there tracking numbers or anything that were sent out?

  • SutibunRiSutibunRi Montreal, Quebec, CanadaRegistered User regular
    Some people got tracking numbers and others didn't.
    It's possible the email went to your spam folders, it claims to be from "Martin and Alex Kidder" and should have reached you on the 13th if you were emailed one, it contains a link to Stamps.com with your tracking number.

    Ill go looking, thanks again :)

    Edit: Nada, either I didn't get one, or outlook.com's email filter outright rejected it. Oh well, got one day left before I start the drive up....fingers crossed :)

    Woo! Coins!
    I see why the low relief on the regular coins didn't go over so well, that was a lot lower relief than I expected, even after seeing pictures.
    But the color coins are so damn amazing.

  • RILMSRILMS ???Registered User regular
    Colour is the way of the future :D:D:D

    Yeah the low relief is OK. I still like it though.

    But the color ones are MUCH better than I expected. Though I'm not a fan of the coating on them. While I understand it's to protect the color I would have like to been able to feel the actual coin .. all the bumps and stuff :) But I am still super happy with how they came out. Much better than I expected.

    Just ordered some, i always seem to forget this is going on till the last minute. At least i dont need them right away, they are just nice physical reminders of the experience...

    @TheGameGuru I do have an extra 2014 coin if your interested, send me a PM or something if you still need it.

    w00t! got them in the mail today :) They are really nice, but my thoughts are the same as the others about the low relief. Something to note for future coins I guess! The colored ones came out really nice!

    Nice :) I was stingy and gave Mike, Jerry, and Scott a colour one each

    What did they think?

    oxlwbbH.jpg
  • SutibunRiSutibunRi Montreal, Quebec, CanadaRegistered User regular
    They said thanks, Mike really liked the regular one.
    I guess they all got extra color coins!
    I'm okay with this!

    @aBByNormaL
    Are you checking the tracking on Canada Posts site? Stamps just stopped tracking mine after it left the US.
    Plus Canada post adds a new 2-8 day delivery time above and beyond USPS.
    I'm ordering extras to have for the future, if yours never show up I'll mail you some from montreal.

    @SutibunRi I was the turquoise haired guy who came up during game night to thank you. It was hard to slip away from my friends long enough to do so without giving away the surprise of the coins.

    Did anyone else notice that the coins seem incredibly thin at the bottom of the pokeball? I set them up near a window in the morning and they looked to be glowing slightly like the light was coming through a bit.

    Thx. The Canada Post site picked up the trail ... so it looks like it cleared customs yesterday. Sometime this week I am guessing.

    The order has been placed with the factory to print the second batch, they will ship as soon as Kiddercorp gets them. (It took a couple days for Kiddercorp to get back to me.)

    @aBByNormaL
    Any update on your shipment?

    Just cross-posting this in the challenge coin threads:

    If you're after a hard plastic case to protect/display your coins I grabbed some from this seller on ebay.

    fyi.
