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.

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.

Unless someone in here beats me to the punch, I'll definitely upload a pic of the postcard by sometime tomorrow morning.

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.

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?

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.)
