    I don't WANT such things....I'm just saying we have all assumed it would come with the last page of the comic...they've never said that though.

    (I think it still go up today of course...just opening up the possibility for anyone to think about)

    The anticipation is making sure that I get nothing done today.

    I could see it happening maybe, its possible, but I don't think I can be that anxious in such a short time span, haha.

    Luckily my boss let me work from home today since I was planning on going back home for the weekend! Makes it look as if I'm still semi-productive! ;)

    Does anyone else have the updates page, twitter, the forums, FB(in case my pin pal sees it first and msg's me) AND the store open refreshing them all? haha. I feel as if they could be laughing at us if they are reading the forums at all. haha.

    I hope it goes up today because Monday I won't be able to watch closely to the store. :/

    I'm keeping an eye on my twitter feed and the PA homepage too. C'mon guys!

  • NowHiringHenchmenNowHiringHenchmen Registered User regular
    Their FB updated not too long ago with the issue itself, so maybe they're just prepping for the flood of clicks.

    Kinda sucks, but I'm not surprised, especially after seeing the art prints go on sale today. No need to release all the merch at once, a drip feed is probably more effective.

    Well, that means I can get back to work.

    I'm an Aussie enthusiast looking for a way to display my collection. So, my question those of you who are using corkboards (or similar) to display your pins: are you using thin enough boards you can keep the black rubber backs on the pins, or are you storing the backs somewhere separately? If it's the first one, how thick is the board you're using? Thanks!

    @Kamelon - I'm using cork boards to display mine, they're called canvas style boards I think (I painted mine with black sparkles for extra snazz), they're thick enough to cover the whole pin part, and I just store my backs in a little baggie. This way I always have spare backs when trekking in the wilds for trading - the darn things always fall off >_< - as the displayed ones wont need backs for the foreseeable future.

    Just got a reply from Brian regarding the pin:

    "Not today. We've seen a sample and it looks beautiful, but production takes time. #sausagemaking"

  • NowHiringHenchmenNowHiringHenchmen Registered User regular
    Another reply when I asked for ETA on pin:

    "Not quite yet. I'll let @cwgabriel know as soon as I have a better idea. That news SHOULD come later today."

    Looks like we can expect something later today!

  • NowHiringHenchmenNowHiringHenchmen Registered User regular
    Looks like someone from Australia (if you're on here, kudos to you!) also asked him about possible preorders for pins, since timezones and such. Ben said:

    "I don't LOVE preorders because I play a game where I try to fulfill all orders we get in under 24 hours. But we might."

  • 00Fayt0000Fayt00 Registered User regular
    Aussie Ben is indeed on here(the one who ask the preorder question). Keep in mind he said Future limited editions and such so that probably won'y apply to Hanna.

  • red54razorred54razor Registered User regular
    Even with pre-orders, the same issue will apply to any limited item. Whenever the gate opens, someone is going to get screwed.

  • NowHiringHenchmenNowHiringHenchmen Registered User regular
    Well then I apologize to AussieBen if he was gonna come forward with this!

    As for preorders, I think it'd be kind of bad. I get the timezone difference, but for limited pins, it'd be tough.

    What they could do is, with limited pins, say there's 10,000 pins available, you can sell around half at one time, and then half when other coasters/countries are waking up.

  • Midas244Midas244 Registered User regular
    Honestly these are all the same problems that they have when it comes to selling PAX tickets. They'll try to do the best they can and we just have to check it obsessively :P

    That being said: I have a rather... flexible working environment that lets me check more obsessively then others might. For those of you who don't use twitter as much I'd be happy to do a group text to people's cells when I see it go up. I use an app called groupme that lets you text people en mass. PM me if you'd like your cell added to the list. I'd be really sad if someone missed out cause they couldn't check the store page/don't use twitter that much (I assume pinpals twitter will tweet when the pin goes up for sale?)

    I will certainly try. However if they release it whilst I am asleep then there will be a delay.

    Is it wrong that I am contemplating getting said pin for trade bait later if there is something I REALLY want that has a limited run?

    No I think that's good planning, the rarity gap between limited and standard pins is quite significant and I think the limited pin scene will have quite a different dynamic.

    yep, depending on the price and exclusivity, I plan to get a couple extras for trades

    Honestly, i think everyone is doing that, which kind of adds to the urgency of buying them.

    I really hope they limit the amount you can get to maybe 2-3 per person, it not only 1.

    So with the news that there are no official shadow boxes coming, I figured I should look into how I want to display the Pins as I go.

    I just ordered the prints of The Tithe, because awesome. And that got me thinking, why not surround the Sets with the comics?

    So I have the Lookouts comics, the Daughters comics, some Twisp and Catsby comics and I figured that I could grab some of my favourite strips for the other stuff.

    Merch, Fruit Fucker, I hope you like Text.

    Then I remembered that each PAX has it's own comic. So I went and found the links for them.

    First was the Australia one, Fauna. Then the Prime one, which is so apt.

    And then the East one (NSFW). Make A Strip Panel: Strip Search Challenge.

    So, it turns out that this will be on the wall of my home office. Where I meet clients. Ah. Oh well.

    Maybe the Tithe art will distract from the...implement.

    PS3 user, all for it. We might want to wait a bit, though, who knows how long it will be before we can reliably play online. I suspect that the system will be bogged down for at least a good week.

    Let me just get a beep boop on your PAX badge real quick!
