Look like PINTRILL (a company specializing in pin fashion) will be making 7 pins based on the 'Tales of the TMNT' Nickeolodeon season. :)

They've sold out now. I was thinking about getting one but the over £10 shipping put me off.

It's from the episode Scroll of the Demodragon were Kavaxas breaks Leo's swords.

Figures I missed this until now, after the Leo one has been and gone. Been hoping someone would produce more enamel pins for them. Ah well.

It's cute, but did Leo break his sword on his own face, or is he swearing...? lol Or both. Mona Lisa one is amusing (if not overly original in concept at this point).

It's based off of the current Nick season where Leo breaks his katana off of Kavaxas if I'm not mistaken.

I was able to get Mona Lisa but unfortunately missed out on Leo. If anyone wants to sell one, hit me up!

Really Kintaro . Why not Usagi ?

I thought the same thing. I still secured one for my pin collection but it is kind of lame. I'm hoping they do Usagi next. They have 4 more pins left so... perhaps? Then again, there's 10 episodes left and I'm not sure how many arcs.

All the TMNT pins have been (or at least started out as) free, dude. Some kinda promotional tie-in with Nick.

They did announce it on facebook the day before the pin went up, but it was not a whole lot of notice. I have noticed these popping up between noon and 2 pm EST so far, but it's been completely random. Makes you kind of have to stalk the site.

08-05-2017, 11:37 AM
Sorry for the double post

To my surprise Pintrill accidently sent me two of them. I got two in separate packages a day a part, so if someone missed Kintaro let me know and I'll help you out.

Cowabunga!

I’ve read through the whole thread, and hope that a Pintrill pro may please offer their pointers, and direct me on how best to collect this new ‘Lone Rat and Cubs’ pin?

Vital tortistics – guided by prior releases, the more probable time (Eastern/Central etc.) that these go live on the site, and whether the link for a free pin is active while at the same time as the link to purchase – the more info, the merrier.

My sincere thanks in advance. :D

Random time normally afternoon. There is no option to buy with $ they only release these 200 for free that is it.

Extremely grateful for this additional information.
Short of there being professional Pintrill people here on the ‘drome, we fans can only be guided by the release of the Leonardo, Mona Lisa & Kintaro pins.

For the sake of clarification, if each pin is a limited edition of 200, and all 200 are also exclusive to the ‘free, with free postage to US residents’ promotion, then why would there be a ‘standard’ link and then a ‘Fans Only’ link?

Has anyone, anywhere outside of the US succeeded in purchasing (or perhaps just paying for postage, in what is at a zero $ charge for the actual pin) one of these TMNT pins, direct from the Pintrill site?

And for any ‘dromer who actually has these TMNT pins, in hand…is the pin itself, or maybe even the cardboard its’ pinned to, numbered?

Finally, when it comes to social media, my pace is more akin to Turtle than Ninja Turtle; I do my best with fb, but neither twitter nor Instagram. I’m wondering does Pintrill actually announce – via any of their social media platforms – once links are live?
:)
‘Lone Rat and Cub’ looks truly awesome, and so does this pin…continued thanks to anyone else who may please wish to guide me further.

The Pins are numbered on the back. My Mona Lisa pin is 73/200 and my Kintaro is 134/200. Also they seem to announce it on the TMNT twitter page

drag0nfeathers
08-06-2017, 03:01 PM
They come on a small piece of thin black board in a clear cellophane bag. I haven't noticed them being numbered, but I haven't taken any of mine out of the packaging so I guess they could be on the back of the pin itself like someone mentioned.

The Leo pin when up at like noon time (EST) and the other two went up around 1pm- 2pm EST so I guess there really is no "set time"

I have asked on the Pintrill Facebook page and haven't gotten any replies. They do usually announce the pin a few days before it's going to go up, but that hasn't been true for when it appears online for purchase. Sometimes, not all the time. Sometimes it's 20 min- 30 min later and by then they are sold out. Kind of makes it a bit of a pain to nab one if you don't have the free time to keep checking back. I'm not on Twitter so maybe that's updated faster.

Yeah I figured as much. However if someone already had the first three to sell, and continued to acquire 4,5,6,&7. I would be interested in taking them off their hands and paying a finders fee for their time and effort.

I saw Mona on ebay for around $15

I still have an extra Kintaro if you want it, or if you score an extra Splinter I'd trade him. (I have an appointment to get my car appraised so I'm afraid I might miss him)

I ended up caving and bought the Leo pin on ebay for $20 just because it was the only one I was missing.

I appreciate the willingness to trade. How does someone end up with extras? Does the company give away multiples to the same person for free? I would like to buy the first three together and then the remaining as individuals each from the same person as they get released. Was hoping someone seen this that was looking to sell. I know I could be asking for a lot but worth a shot. :toops:

2 links get posted. One by pintrill and one by TMNT social media. I would guess Pintrill gives out like 50 and then the other 150 go from TMNT since the TMNT one seems to last longer.

Got Splinter/pin four in the mail today. I noticed on the back lower right corner a sticker type thing with 2017 and Pintrill logo on it. Not on pin two and three. Or is it on every pin and just my others didnt get the sticker? Is this sticker a new authentication thing the company just started?

Yes, this is a new thing. None of the other pins had it. Likely a new backing they are using.

Thanks for the confirmation. I did see acouple on eBay without the back sticker as well so all is good in my world of self diagnosed OCD. :)

Anyone actually open the Splinter pin? I would like to know what number people are getting out of the 200? Has anyone opened any of the pins?

Haven't opened mine. They're numbered? I might be tempted to carefully take a peek then if the seal will restick.

The numbers must be randomly given out and not based on order, since I grabbed one from the first set right after it went live, but didn't get a low-ish number. (And saw it say 20 left still after I'd ordered from that particular lot.)

But... I kinda like that I got next to last number 199 of 200. :)

Though in theory, late numbers could have been at the top of the pile? Curious what numbers other early-grabbers got vs those who got in under the wire.

That seems very unusual. Someone with Facebook could leave a message on Pintrill's page. I would like to see photos of a Splinter pin with the issue number and one that says "proof." I'm a very visual person. Only if posting pics is convenient though. :)

IndigoErth
08-14-2017, 08:48 PM
Really curious what that means.

The only guess I can make is maybe proofs are the first ones made that were, in a sense, testers to make sure it was coming out right, and since it worked they were included in the batch prior to those that received numbers? (More to my theory that the earliest ones made could have been at the bottom of the pile prior to shipping and might go to those who got in under the wire...)

Proof could make it more rare. The proof theory of yours IndigoErth sounds like it makes sense. I wonder how many proofs got produced prior to the 1/200 marking. Could there have been 400 Splinter pins made? I am also curious how many of the pins Kevin Eastman got?

For Splinter I got 46/200 and ordered as soon as Autbot_Benz posted the link and my friend did the same and got 192/200. The two I got from a fellow dromer are Mona Lisa 124/200 & Kintaro 57/200.

I attached some photos if anyone needs reference pics for any reason. I found the bags are easy to seal again if opened carefully.

I think you should keep yours. If she had something like 1/200 or 200/200, I would trade, but Proof might end up being rare.

Yeah I would think proof would be more rare. But have no actual idea. Comes down to personal preference. Knowing that they got advertised as a run of 200. I would be extremely bothered if mine wasn't numbered. Even if the proof became twice as valuable in time I would still need one that has a 1-200 designation. And I would not buy a non-number on the secondary market. That's just me though and my weird way of thinking. Reminds me of how some comics are issue #0 which is cool.

How often does a new one go up?

ToSte
08-16-2017, 04:18 PM
You're theory is correct, the proof pins are indeed less common. The manufacturer first makes a set of proofs on a master disk that's about the size of a vinyl record, they present the proof to purchaser for approval on color and everything before moving on. Those look to be about 2 inches so I'd guess there's only about 6 to 8 proofs out there.

How often does a new one go up?

Hard to say. They've been days apart and up to three weeks apart. They tend to go up roughly around when the new episode or arc airs, but that's a fairly loose term. They usually give a heads up a few days in advance on Twitter or Facebook though. I've missed 2 or of 4 so far

That's awesome. So there's prob a little over 200 made really, but just a few lucky people getting unnumbered.

Kintaro - 95/200
Splinter - Proof

I'm hyped to have a numbered one and a proof. Sort of a best of both worlds type of deal. I hope the pins continue on this upward trend of better designs. They've gotten cooler with each release, in my opinion.

Well yea exactly. I mean Halloween theme is fine but a vampire Raph or something would have just been more TMNT inspired instead of a generic pumpkin in a black bandanna. It just doesn't say "Turtles" at all to me at all.

I was hoping for a cool pin for the Apocalypse arc... Ice Cream Kitty with a machine gun would be awesome, but I know that ain gonna happen. Maybe Mikey's teddy bear grenade or the Casey Jones skull bomb would be pretty sweet.

That would have been cute!

Or was thinking at the very least use one of their mask colors. Donnie's purple might have been nice. At least remains vaguely TMNT-ish then if removed from the card it comes on.

Without the name behind it, it could be any black-masked character. Hey, cute Lone Ranger/Zorro/whatever pumpkin. Hm.



But come on with this Pintrill... Tired of babysitting it. I don't really want to spend my whole afternoon before work refreshing a website. Give me at least a little while before work that I'm not afraid to leave the computer! :P My luck they'd do this one late and wait until I have to leave.

This was actually the first one of these pins that I ordered. Before, I saw the Splinter pin posted by the TMNT Facebook, but the design didn't grab me enough to attempt ordering it and checking if it was in fact 100% free. This one's festive theme combined with the black mask reminding me of Slash easily made it a must get, though, so I'm glad that I was able to grab one. Very interested in seeing the one for Wanted: B&R now.

I was just shocked it was still there because I was completely unaware today was a pin release day. The first one I grabbed was the one Eastman designed with Splinter and the baby turtles in the shopping cart. For that one I was waiting for it and snagged it immediately upon release. This Bebop and Rocksteady one is just a nice surprise.

As for my corkboard, I have a totally random assortment of enamel pins. Most of them are horror related, but I do have a nice amount of TMNT pins in there. When I see any I must have, I instantly buy them. Some of my favorites are done by @thejunkship on Instagram, as they release Universal Monster TMNT pins. :tgrin:

Ugh. Instagram doesn’t have notifications so I was keeping Twitter open to watch for the link. Really annoyed to have missed this.

Wow, no notice at all before hand. I literally just checked Pintrill in the last day or so and saw nothing related... Once again not a chance in heck, but I can live without B&R, but glad you guys caught it. Talk about and hit and run. Pin and run?

Wow that sucks... missed this too. *sigh* off to pay scalper prices on ebay yet again. If anyone wants to trade I still have an extra pumpkin.

I'll scalp for one on eBay... IF some go up on eBay. Hopefully, not too many of us will be fighting each other.

Also missed it, but a bit less-arsed about it than I thought I'd be. Seems to just be based on the usual Nick B&R stock art and Rocksteady looks kinda funky. They really could've done a lot more for both an episode of this nature AND the "series finale."

IndigoErth
11-10-2017, 05:51 PM
There's still one more to go, right...? Curious what that could even be. Unless there is an apocalypse one coming in late. Or maybe just a general Nick TMNT kind of commemorative for the series?

It's a shame these Pins have not been for sale to everyone (worldwide).
The Bebop & Rocksteady Pin is very nice indeed! :cry:

Yeah, I'm a bit salty on this one. I had a twitter tab open looking for the announcement, because twitter updates live without having to actively refresh and that is the best I can do while I'm at work. Instagram has no notification system and I miss it completely over there. I express my annoyance on Twitter and Instagram and @TMNT is all "why you hating on us giving away free pins?" when obviously that is not what I am doing. And then when I express extra annoyance that they only make 200 of these and @Pintrill is giving away who knows how many of them to non-TMNT fans and @TMNT is all "Just trying to make new fans." Bulls**t. The damn show is over. And now I just paid way too much to a guy on eBay who seems to have gotten a minimum of FOUR of them.

ya I saw the back n forth Tokka was having with The TMNT Twitter. He wanted Pintrill to Sell the pins for those who couldn't get them. I do agree they should have done something like make you answer TMNT related questions before getting a pin instead of letting non fans just looking to get money on ebay for them.

Anyone getting these pins just to sell them on Ebay for 20 bucks are scum and shame on TMNT twitter and Pintrill for allowing this

Ugh, that's frustrating.

This was definitely a cool promotion, and while I missed out on all of them (I don't have a job/schedule that lets me be ready to jump at any given moment) I loved most of the designs and the whole idea was super cool. I'd gladly buy a couple of them through an official venue -- the Splinter one in particular. But scalpers are a damn plague, and it stinks that some jerks were able to snap up several and then sell them at inflated prices.

I hope most wound up with actual fans, at least. :tgrumble:

Are they going to do one for Apocalypse or is this it? I remember TMNT said PINTRILL was going to make 7 pins.

Unknown, but I'm also curious.

And it looks like the person with the eBay auction now has FIVE to sell. So, yay.

I just bought my pin on eBay as well from someone who had 5 of them at 20 bucks a pop. So that's 100 bucks they made for doing nothing really.

It sucks. At the opportunity I had two friends pick up the Ciro pumpkin pin so maybe I could trade them for ones I've missed but it didn't seem to work out. I gave one to a fellow dromer who missed it and threw the extra in eBay to buy the rocksteady and bebop pin so... meh.... I can't knock scalpers I guess but it is annoying when folks who aren't fans take advantage of of these promotions for sure.

Has anyone found out if there is one left yet or not?

Yes, there should be one more that is still to come.

With the latest Bebop and Rocksteady pin I received from Pintrill, it included a postcard that shows all the pins that have been released thus far (6) out of the seven and they state there will be seven total on that postcard.

Nothing has been revealed for the seventh, but I hope I'm paying attention when it's released.

Whatchall think the last one will be? Raph as seen in the finale? All 4 future turtles' heads? Fully grown Chompy? Meera? Suped up Shellraiser?

It should be the 4 turtles with the date they premiered and the date the show ended that would be a great way to finish off the pins.

IndigoErth
11-22-2017, 06:55 PM
Yeah, similarly my guess is a general commemorative one for the series.

Unless the apocalypse episode supposedly being the last but airing early threw it off and it was missed and the last will be a late one related to that arc?

Roseangelo
11-22-2017, 08:09 PM
So I feel a little better now. For some reason, the eBay seller spent $6.63 sending the pin Priority Mail, when it would cost less than $3 to send first class.

(give me this small victory. i need it.)

Examining the postcard that came with the lastest pin I noticed that they mistakenly described it as being "inspired by the 'Mutant Apocalypse' episodes" . . . Not sure if that guarantees the last pin will be "Mutant Apocalypse" related, or if they decided to go with "Wanted: Bebop & Rocksteady" instead at some point and simply forgot to change the text.

Anyhoo love this pin, maybe even more than the Eastman Splinter one... cuz it just functions as a pin a bit better. :trazz:

What are the odds the last pin will release next week? I’ve managed to collect all so far with a little help from resellers. I’m really wanting to get this last and final one myself! :tsmile:

Bought the Bebop and Rocksteady one on ebay so I'm caught up but I'd hate to also miss the last one... Any news about when it may be released? The series is done now so there's really no way to surmise even close to when they may do it.
