We’ve talked about the fun Star Trek: Discovery pins our friends at FanSets have been rolling out this fall — check out our review of the first wave of character pins here — and this week, the manufacturer announced they are launching a new global release program of Discovery episode-themed specialties!
Dubbed Episode Pins, this FanSets special collection will include an oversized, story-themed design for each episode of Star Trek: Discovery‘s first season, beginning with “The Vulcan Hello” and “Battle at the Binary Stars,” last weekend’s premiere pairing.
Additionally, early subscribers can also get a “Season 1” collectors pin, but only if signed up for the program during the month of October, bearing the updated Starfleet Command insignia.
These incredible pins will all be approximately 2 -2 ¼” square in size and feature an important person, ship, alien or item from each episode. As a special bonus, the first pin is an oversized 3”x3” to celebrate the launch of the latest chapter in the Star Trek Universe!
There will be 16 pins in the set, 15 episode pins and an exclusive “Season 1 Pass Holder Pin”. Each pin will indicate the season, the episode number and the episode title.
Pins will ship in two sets. 4-6 weeks after the 8th episode airs, the first eight episode pins will ship with the ninth “Pass Holder” pin for a total of 9 pins. 4-6 weeks after the 15th episode airs, the last eight pins will ship.
Only people that order before October 29th will receive the exclusive pass holder pin. All orders placed after midnight MST, October 29th will receive the 15 episode pins but NOT the exclusive Pass Holder pin.
The Episode Pins subscription program, which is available to fans worldwide, can be found at EpisodePins.com.
FanSets also revealed their New York Comic Con-exclusive USS Discovery pin, set to debut next week at the annual event in the Big Apple: but only 750 of these pins will be available on-site in New York, selling for a $15 price point.
