    Just paid and filled out the form!

    When do you expect these to be shipped?

  • ArcSynArcSyn Registered User regular
    I haven't gotten any estimate back from Kiddercorp yet, but we're probably looking at mid-late November. I'm not sure how busy the manufacturer is though. I'll post an update once I get an update from Kiddercorp.

    Kiddercorp says that barring any factory issues, orders should go out in time to be delivered before people would be leaving for PAX. Woo!

    Just going to send out a ping to those who initially indicated they were interested, but haven't put an order in yet. I should have done this when I posted the order form. Below list will be removed after posting.

    We've sold 73 of our initial batch of 100 painted coins! If you want in on the initial batch shipment, order now!

    Plenty of unpainted coins left, if you want a cheaper option.

    If I order now, would it be possible to get mine before unplugged?

  • ArcSynArcSyn Registered User regular
    They should ship out and deliver before Unplugged. They haven't received or started shipping out the first batch yet, so you should receive it in time.

    Sweet thanks so much!

  • Dragonbear82Dragonbear82 Registered User regular
    Any news on the shipping for these? Just want to see if we should still expect them before next Wednesday with the holiday weekend this week.

  • ArcSynArcSyn Registered User regular
    I'll check on it. I spoke with them last week and they expected the coins from the factory last week and should be able to start shipping this week.

    So got word today, I guess they didn't arrive last week but should arrive tomorrow and then they will try and get them packed up and ready to ship out Monday morning.

    Sorry it's cutting it really close guys. Next year I'll try and get things submitted a few weeks earlier. I had hoped it was early enough but the few changes we had to make to spelling and coloring with the production artwork ate up the buffer I thought we had.

    Woohoo!
    I hope you had a great Thanksgiving. All current PAX Unplugged 2018 coin orders, as of 12:30 pm Friday, have been shipped out.

    Everyone received a shipping notification email that contains the USPS tracking number for their package.

    Thank You and have a great day!

    Is there a way to see if I'm on the list for first batch? I haven't received my shipping email yet and I wanna know if I'm gonna get them before I leave for Unplugged

    Sent you a PM to confirm details.

    We haven't reached the second batch yet for either, but only one or two painted coins left of the first 100. Plenty of unpainted.

    Honestly, unless there's a run on unpainted coins I may need to only do painted ones next year. We haven't even sold through half of the initial minimum batch yet.

    We've sold through our first batch of painted coins! Any orders recently placed or placed post the time stamp of this message will be processed with the second batch of coins.

    You're in the first batch. Only one person so far is in the second batch. I'll post an update tonight, but essentially anyone ordering today is second batch. Most of yesterday and earlier is first.

    Received my coins in the mail today!!! They look wonderful!!! The purple on the colored one is so dark though, it looks kinda like the unpainted one in certain light.

    Got mine as well. The quality is very good but just way too dark, both the painted and unpainted. I thought they would be much lighter.

    Your color coins are way more vibrant than mine. Looks like the production run had variance.

    Just opened mine and my purple is super dark.

    Is there some kind of removable plastic covering on the painted coins. Mine are all smooth. Nothing like last years.

  • ArcSynArcSyn Registered User regular
    Yes, I got mine as well. It appears they were coated in an epoxy. I was aware they were to be epoxied, but I was unaware they would coat the entire thing. It sounded like they just put epoxy over the paint to seal it in.
    Sorry guys, I definitely thought the purple would stand out more, but the epoxy is keeping the light from hitting it as much and instead making it that much darker.

    @nomisro Are yours not epoxied or is that the result of a direct flash?

  • LilRuubLilRuub Registered User regular
    I just shown a super bright LED flashlight on my coins and they look like nomisro's above. Without that level of direct light they just look dark like hippiecolor's.

    @ArcSyn Is there any recourse from Kiddercorp. They appear to be a well respected coin manufacturer. I would think they do not want to have so many customers disappointed in their product.

    Ordered my coins. Sorry for the delay @ArcSyn, had to deal with some unexpected issues that forced my delay.
