    I'll be ordering after Friday's payday, provided that I don't spend too much at Saturday's Star Wars-themed craft beer fest. (I had to brag about that somewhere. My family just rolls their eyes at me when I get excited)

    ...what's this now? Do I now have plans on Saturday?

    Whoops I didn't see how long ago that was posted. Sounds like a great time.

    It was a good time. Hopefully you didn't break the bank.

    It was last Saturday, so you'll have to just drink beer and play star wars on tv. Which is still a pretty damn good Saturday.

    Sorry, that was last weekend (02.01). It ended up not being anywhere near as Star Wars themed as I would have liked. Some cover band came on, playing Maroon 5 and the likes. Fine if that's your bag of tea. It is not mine by any stretch of the imagination. Most people were there for the unlimited beer consumption, which is fine and all. As my friend put it while looking over the crowd, "I'm starting to doubt the fandom here."

    The best part was that all of the screens played a loop of the best saber battles from the first 6 episodes. That was pretty awesome and made me want to rewatch them all again (given that fast forwarding through half of Episode 2 is required to get past the horrible love story).

    While I agree that being insensitive is an issue, so is being oversensitive.

    Hey folks, so I got this email from Kiddercorp yesterday.

    I'm pretty sure this means the coins are not likely to make it in time for East. :(

    Figured you all deserved to know.
    Hello,

    We feel it necessary to inform all of our customers that due to the Coronavirus, most orders will be delayed.

    The virus is disrupting the global supply chain and causing extended factory and shipping shutdowns everywhere. 

    All active orders will be delayed. We expect an additional 10-14 days will be required for most orders, but the issue is ongoing and circumstances appear to be worsening daily.

    We apologize for the unforeseen delay and appreciate your patience.

    Thank You.

    KidderCorp
    While that is unfortunate, there's really nothing to be done, nor anyone's fault other than the bats that started this whole epidemic. Considering what that virus has done, challenge coins are a low priority and a silly thing to get mad about. Thanks for keeping us in the loop and for all of the hard work that has always been put into these.

    While I agree that being insensitive is an issue, so is being oversensitive.

    There was definitely a good portion that were just there for the beer. The Star Wars part of it was irrelevant to them.

    Money is super tight this year, so 1 is all I will be able to get :( I'll have some of the older ones to trade if anyone needs some.

    Dammit I completely forgot about Challenge coins last year and nearly forgot this year. Can't say I'm a fan of the VR side, but if I wanted a say I should have been around for the designing!

    Are there any of last year's coins floating around? I'd love to get one for my collection.

    If you cant find one let me know. I can get you one.

    Would you be willing to sell to me? I would ideally like to get 1 color and 1 regular coin, but if you only have one of them, that's good too! I could pay paypal before the con, or cash at, whatever you prefer.

    Coins should reach Kiddercorp by the end of next week, and then shipping shall begin.

    Is there a chance I can put in an order for a couple more color coins if I contact Kiddercorp directly?

  • SutibunRiSutibunRi Montreal, Quebec, CanadaRegistered User regular
    Hey folks, kiddercorp is preparing the shipping labels so they can package and ship your coins as soon as they arrive stateside, and they noticed a couple issues, i've emailed those of you I need extra info from.

    Everyone who ordered coins will get coins, and if you want to grab extra regular coins we have ~30 left.

    Everyone should have their coins (or have them waiting at post offices depending on how mail is being handled right now?)
    Except for one person who I only have an email address for who hasn't replied to the email asking for missing info.

    If you haven't gotten yours, send me a PM and I'll look into it.

    Hey everyone.
    We're at about that time when we want to start working on coins for East 2021, but with no indication that East is actually going to happen.

    I don't feel like I currently have the mental energy to devote myself to getting the coin process rolling knowing that it might end up being for nothing.

    If anyone else wants to take up the responsibility, please, speak up.

    Or we can wait and see, then have a much shorter design phase if we get good news.

    Hi SutibunRi! Good to hear from you again. I just checked the BCEC site earlier today, and they have a number of large shows scheduled for the months and weeks prior to PAX East in there, like an auto show, seafood show, etc. Some appear very large, so I'm hoping we can still move ahead, and the BCEC appears to still be free the week of PAX (which is normal, they don't post PAX on the schedule). I no longer have a direct link to management (I spoke with Robert Khoo in years past) and so have no further input as to what discussions the staff must be having. I know they have that ten year contract and not sure what options they have to cancel, but it does appear the BCEC itself is permitting shows next year. Hopefully they will let us know soon. I will be attending for certain if the show is on, but I won't be able to tackle the coin process myself.

  • TopherRocksTopherRocks Rockstar Beard Grower Kent, OH or Long Island, NYRegistered User regular
    I suspect they'll cancel but it's hard to know when they'll do so. If I'm not mistaken they've not been great announcing shows are pulled in advance and have only been doing so maybe 2 months till showtime. We know the show would be end of March, I'd say lay low till the end of November and if badgers don't go on sale by then, assume the plug was pulled.

    Personally speaking, I'd still be interested in an East 2021 coin even if the show doesn't happen (maybe a "joke" coin of some sort?), but I've only ever been a customer, not a volunteer. Maybe go ahead and brainstorm a coin that, at worst, doesn't actually get printed until East 2022?

    I have absolutely zero design skill but a gag coin is screaming "404 PAX Not found" to me.

    I'd love a coin that commemorates the dumpster fire that is 2020! I usually get a coin for each of the shows and now there will be the gap in my collection from all the canceled shows. If we combined all the missed shows into 1 coin would there be enough interest? Maybe a coin with one side lists East, West, South, Unplugged, Australia, and the other side some depiction of the virus or a mask with the 404 text?

    That sounds interesting. It could be a pentagram on one side with S, E, W, A, U on the spokes and then O in the middle. It could just say PAX 2020 and the other side could be the virus and say Stay Home instead of the usual Welcome Home. PAX South and PAX East did have a coin this year though
