    Looks like lots of "purchase" pins, but plenty of opportunity for free ones as well. Interesting that Twitch is making a pinny again instead of sticking with their own brand.

    some of these MAY be just old pin offloads but no way to know till official list.

    All the booths marked with a Pinny logo are NEW pins. Confirmed in Slack. Also can tell since Behemoth has stated they will have old series pins and their booth is not marked with a Pinny logo.

    Edit: I take it back... Not ALL Pinny logos are new (Child's Play). But otherwise it is almost all. :P

    So many pins. It is hard to believe they are all(most) all new. For example Pax Aus roadshow are usually old pins. However, even if it turns out some are repeats, there are LOTS of new ones there. I hope we get some insanely difficult time sink pins. That is just me though.

  • thx42thx42 SeattleRegistered User regular
    We had like 43 new pins last West, so the same number, if not more, is definitely possible.

    Anyone interested in trading/picking up the Witcher pin?

    My fiancée is obsessed and she would love this! I have a spare Gwent pint from East (she took me along to the panel) or I'd be willing to pay a reasonable finders rate.

    I think Edith Finch was $15 at East, but it's unclear whether the new ones will be sold or not. When the post first went up, it said you got them from doing demos, but later it changed.

    It wasn't a large amount - they sold out pretty fast. They'll have Finch and Gorogoa at West -

    Pin newbie here. Familiar w/ how it's done at Disney. We do plan to hit the trading event on Sat.

    At PAX itself,

    1) What are the specific rules about trading w/ staff?
    2) How would I identify staff?

    We have 2 from 2016 PAX and plan to buy a few, but those we want to keep. Trying to get some trade fodder so that we have a handful to trade w/o regret.

    Thanks.

    The exact rules for trading with staff are here - https://penny-arcade.com/pinny-arcade/rules

    Short of looking up pictures of each staff member, it's probably easiest to attend the staff trading event, since they'll all be there in one place - west.paxsite.com/schedule/panel/official-pinny-arcade-pin-trading-event

    At other times, you might be able to find staff trading at one of the tables near main merch.

    Anyone know how Riot will be giving away the Annie Pin?? Is it a buy cuz I remember in previous years, they did "be one of the first X in line at their cosplay booth" kind of deals. I think it was for an Amumu plush??

    We haven't heard anything yet. They've only had one other pin, and that was Teemo at East 16, which you got by walking through their Riftwalk exhibit. The room they have this year isn't super big, so there isn't really a lot of room for lines, which makes me think they might just be selling stuff.

    I Just wanted to give a heads up on the staff trade event. This year at East was the first time I went to the staff trading event. Several people told me that it should be very easy going and it has never been a problem to come up whenever so no rush. I arrived about 1/2 an hour in advance of the event and a long line had formed. The line was capped shortly after I arrived. I waited over an hour in the line and then I was in the last group to go in and we were a little rushed through because of the turn out. I was so happy to make it into the line, but there were a lot of sad faces from people who walked up after the line was capped.

    It seemed like that turn out was not expected. I am not sure if it was due to the popularity of the pins this year or just that the community is growing so much. It may be different at west, but it may be a good idea to get there early to check out the line. Hopefully it is not as popular this time.

    This year at East was a bit different then previous East trading events in earlier years. The line at East does usually cap just because of the huge amount of people in the building, so that is normal. The time limit on staying in the trading area was completely new though, and not well thought out. I didn't even have time to go to each table to just get the new staff pins because the enforcers pushed us right back out after a set time. I made sure to not waste much time at each table, just enough to look through what was displayed, and see if there were any pins I needed instead of the second staff copy.

    I still missed at least 3 staff members. It was a bigger problem because of the capped line too: you couldn't go back through again and get staff that was missed.

    I know in previous years, there were issues with people hovering over tables, waiting for new traders to drop rare pins because they didn't know what they had. The time limit was done to curtail that, but it also hampered legit trading too. I know there was talk after that about changing the format again, so who knows what the future will bring.

    Good advice is, always get to staff trading early, and keep an eye out for staff wandering around the PAX - they will always trade too!

    @elo Thank you for the follow up on that. I think I was just misinformed by someone who meant well. I think the time limits make sense due the staff scheduling. I'm sure they can't hang all day, but it would be cool if they could have stand ins to provide everyone more time. I was so overwhelmed by the whole thing that I did not even bother looking at the other pins on the table! I will definitely check that out next year. Each PAX has provided an opportunity to learn something new. Now I will be more prepared next year :-). I have been going to East since 2013 but really just got into full on pin trading. Next year, it is my primary objective so I will be searching for those staff members. Thanks!

    I went to my first East this past year and attended the trading event. It was just like previous events I have attended at West and South where you had to get there really early and only had a limited amount of time with the staff. I am sure everyone here is aware you need to line up early if you want to actually get into the event at West.

    This is typically your choice of two $30 pin sets, plus a lanyard.

    That is what I figured it would be as well. Basically the "Buy 2 sets get 1 lanyard" that they did in the past.

    That makes sense. I don't remember them listing it as a starter set last year, but do remember getting lanyards with two sets.

    That event falls right across three of the Pin related panels happening at the Cat Theatre and and Autograph Area. Some tough choices must be made...

    Idea for the Dauntless and FarCry 5 Flag pins:
    We all go in and mob those booths at the same time, and just keep cycling through until everyone gets their copy. We could even up the throughput by figuring out how to end the match/game faster, by one side or the other throwing the match. This would probably work better during off peak times, if there is such a thing, on Friday or Monday, but it would help make sure everyone that wants the "OverWatch Gold" type pin gets one. It might even make it possible for those of us collecting for people who cover other shows to get enough.

    Has this sort of thing been tried before? How well did it work? Who's in for trying it out?

    Getting a group to try and take out dauntless sounds good. I have experience with monster hunter if you want to start one.
