That said they do look nice.  Really, they'll display quite well and I'd suggest about the only way to properly display them would be on the albums.  The albums, though only cardboard, are pretty nice. 

Very cool.  That's pretty much what I expected.  The album looks quite sharp based on the pictures I've seen, and appears to do a good job of showing these pins off.

Thanks again Brent!   :)

This link appears to have both the order and the pictures of each of the pins as actually appear.

Check that, this may be the order for Toronto, but clearly it isn't for here.  We got Vader first.

Anyhoo, Maul acquired, up next is a scruffy looking nerf herder.

Not sure where I left off :P

Obi
Han
Mace
Boba Fett

Anakin is tomorrow. 

The short version is I haven't missed anything yet.  Anybody needing a single pin of something, lmk.

Every day it goes into the big box at the other side of the Safeway parking lot.  Worst part is when they won't sell me five at once ::)  Limit of four - some enforce it, some don't.  Bloody pain in the ass.  Would have liked to have found one of those stores that will sell all 20 at once, but none here.

Going to definitely try to get the UK set as well.

Morgbug, just wanted to double check: Am I on your list of people you're picking up the Canadian pins for?
