    If you are getting some - save some for a community pinny panel. Opening them there is so much fun :)

    Good idea Senno. Hopefully 2017 is the year I actually get to go to one. Non PAX commitments have stopped me from attending twice now. Leaving one unopened that long is going to be tough though

    Doesn't necessarily have to be at the panel. At the trade table the staff are interested to see what you get as well - and of course, you're set for a trade if you don't like what you get.

  • vonhistvonhist Mr Melbourne, AustraliaRegistered User regular
    I hope they do another one next year around June (July 4 maybe?), my wallet hasnt recovered from Pax Aus and Christmas is fast approaching.

    Opening DSBs at PAX is awesome.

    Based on previous DSB drops, any idea what time of day these might go live? Additionally, do they sell out quick or can one be late to the party and still have a shot to purchase?

    Last time they sold out in < 20 minutes. Noon PST on Thanksgiving was the previous on sale time, hopefully it will be tomorrow though based on the AI sales date.

    Yep, missed out as well. It let me put them in the cart and then said they were sold out. What a tease. Just gotta try my luck next time.

    Missed it, but the image from Tycho's post shows there will be more on 12/8 @2pm and 12/22 @2pm... so there is hope!

    I picked up 10. Both my local friends missed out so I will split with them and try again next month.

  • LejicLejic Registered User regular
    I got 12, I have no idea how. I was a few minutes late (got distracted while waiting) and my payment method failed THREE TIMES. My guess is that once I get to check-out it wouldn't let my cart items "disappear" from beneath my fingers like some sites do.

    I won't get them until New Years (sent it to my SO's) but...so excited already!!

  • DevereauxDevereaux Registered User regular
    I had a DSB case in my cart along with a case of the acquisitions, however, when I proceeded to complete my purchase it wouldn't let me complete the order because the DSB was sold out. I was pissed because I HAD it in my cart :x :x Guess I will have to wait until round 2. Did I tell you I was PISSED!! :x Got the acquisitions case though :D

    So ordered 10x boxes (no idea why I didn't just take the 12 ¯\_(ツ)_/¯) and offered to split them with some friends as they missed out on this round. We all met up for D&D last night and split the boxes 4-3-3. Results below, sorry about the shitty photos. Already posted on Slack last night.

    Mine are the 8 on the blue bags. In the order I opened them top left to right. Blind Merch was the last pin opened.

    I hope future rounds of blind boxes remove staff pins, or greatly reduce them. From a "value" perspective, this is the worst round of blind boxes ever. Obviously this depends on increasing our data collection to increase our confidence level, but it doesn't look good so far.

    As someone who started collecting in 2015, I'm happy to see series 1 staff pins instead of lookouts and armaddedon.

  • fishfishmonkeyhatfishfishmonkeyhat Freelance Pin Man Newcastle, AustraliaRegistered User regular
    Yeah, I think that staff set will gain value in the community faster than a lot of the other pins.

    I kinda feel like the DSBs are not for the people that have been amassing pin hoardes since day one. Having Series 1 staff pins is great for newer collectors & people building fodder while chasing Blind Merch.

    I don't think DSBs are a good value proposition for people with lots of pins, but they are undeniably popular amongst them. It would be cool if there was a way to guarantee every new pin collector a chance to buy a set of DSBs. Since the new collectors are the ones least likely to know about and be ready for the tiny window in which you can buy them.

    Staff pins are pins you should be trading for, though. There are billions (thousands) of them.

    Pins for trade!
