    I don't think we'll be around for the pub crawl. Trains are slow.

    I'm on the train and I plan on making it to the pub crawl.

    Alrighty, I now have all of my buttons, so I thought I would post pics of the last few, and give you guys totals on how many of them I have.
    Here is a small little group picture :P
    2zjme84.jpg

    Alright, so the buttons that just came in are the Zerowing and the Rare buttons, so here are pics:
    14cy42d.jpg
    288z3tg.jpg

    Alright now here are the totals of buttons I have left to give out:

    LTAcosta Avatar: 107 (111 and a broken one came, minus 4 already given)
    MacCartney Avatar (Sister's Button): 108 (111 and a broken one came, minus 3 already given)
    Rayman Avatar (Dad's Button): 109 (112 came, minus 3 already given)

    Ok now this is where it gets a little funny... I ordered 25 of each bonus button...

    Internet Pirate: 21 (25 came, minus 4 already given)
    The Joker: 21 (25 came, minus 4 already given)
    Zerowing: 22 (25 came, minus 3 already given)

    *This is where it gets interesting*

    Halo: 46 (49 came, minus 3 already given... yes, 49, go figure...)

    *Now the most ironic*

    The Rare Button: 45 (48 came, minus 3 already given)

    ...so yeah, basically there are more rare buttons than Joker and Pirate buttons lol :P

    MrBlarney is waiting for buttons to arrive for him and I, plus some Phalla buttons.

    I'll make sure he posts pics when they come in, you can put us on the list of button peoples. :^:

    haha, I think so too. But the fewer of any one button I have, the more conservative I will be with it... so to begin wth, the joker and pirate buttons are going to be the hardest to get from me... but I still dont know exactly what I will require to get them

    Nah, MarsChelios was the one who did the Pirate Larp in '06 and has graduated to his new Assassins stuff. However, the hat and flag are never a bad idea.

    Mine haven't been shipped yet, but yours probably look better than mine. I accidentally cut the rest of the design that was on the outside of the dotted circle on the template, so... it's gonna look weird.

    I've read/heard that they try their best to make sure things come out right even if the template isn't followed just right. Hope for the best!

    dude i dunno what's up with them, they just take random orders and bust 'em out, then take their time on others. I received mine like 6-7 days after I ordered them, and i too live in WA. I also got 96 buttons when I ordered 50.

    So yeah, no idea what they do and why or how they do it, it's weird...

    My second badge order arrived today - same as the first, cos i only ordered 50 first time round - got 63, gave 7 away at the pre-PAX birmingham meet-up, and this order contains 67. The only difference is the latest ones have my name on. No pic, cos hardly any change.

    I know it's nothing special due to my lack of skillz, but I have sent it to them. I'll probably come up with a new one after PAX depending on how many buttons I manage to collect.

    BTW I'm still saving most of the pictures people are posting of their buttons here, just in case. :P
