I've been meaning to show these to you guys for a while now: remember when I asked what fandoms you wanted to see in our next batch of Epbot magnets? Well, John and I tallied up the most-requested ones, and put together 5 new designs!
Here we go, in no particular order:
You want a revolution? I WANT A REVELATION:
... of our new Hamilton 'bot! I think this is our first pin/magnet to break the "Epbot in cosplay" format, but I just love that Botty silhouette. :D
I have a hunch that this will be our most popular in the new batch:
(I suggested John add the falling tribble, and now it's my favorite part.)
Next is the happiest colors of the bunch:
Pony 'Bot! (Or Pinkie 'Bot?) John worked so hard getting the word design right on this one, and I lurrrrrve it. (I almost want just the "My Little Epbot" on a pin!)
To be honest this next one is our least favorite of the bunch, but let's see what you guys think:
Sherlock 'Bot is mostly an homage to the new show, with a little classic Holmes thrown in with that magnifying glass. It's not super colorful, but I'm hoping my fellow Sherlock fans will dig it.
And finally, do you know how long we had to brainstorm to get the right Muppets design? At least, like, half an hour. We almost went with Animal, but then realized we had to dress Botty as our favorite Muppet:
Again, John knocked it outta the park with the word design here, and that red curtain background practically glows in real life, it's so vivid.
All 5 of these designs will be available in our next sale, coming atcha this Tuesday, 10/24, at 3PM EST. These 5-packs tend to go fast, so for you other time zones I'll also be listing a second batch that same night at 10PM EST.
This sale will be all magnets again, since they were so popular last time, but I'm sure we'll bring pins back in the future. As a reminder, here's a size reference:
We've also updated the packaging graphics, but I haven't photographed those yet.
They're shipped in a bubble mailer, but inside that they're packaged in a cute orange envelope and sealed with an Epbot sticker:
To keep the choices manageable John and I are retiring a few of our least popular designs, but if you've got your heart set on something not shown below, just tell us with your order. We can still make any of the old designs.
For now, though, here are the 17 you have to choose from:
Again, these will all go on sale this Tuesday at 3PM here in my Etsy store. Judging by our past sales you should have about a 20 minute window before they sell out, so set an alarm, and make your choices ahead of time just in case! If you miss the 3PM batch the 10PM one should take longer to sell out, so check back then. I'll be listing just under 200 packs, since that's the limit of what John and I can assemble and ship in a reasonable amount of days. (We make every single magnet to order, so it's a long, hand-bruising process.)
After this I plan to have another sale mid-to-late November, so let me know now if you'd rather that batch be magnets or pins, k?
