FanSets PINsider Blog | April 2020

HELLO EVERYONE!

It has been a while since our last blog post but we have been very busy! I'd like to introduce myself and share a little bit about what's been going on at FanSets in 2020. My name is Joe and I am Lew's son. Lew is usually the one who writes these and if you've ever interacted with us on social media then there's a good chance you've talked with him. I handle most of what happens with the website, ebay and amazon as well as other operations at FanSets.

Today I'd like to share with you some of the exciting things we have coming in April.... and there is A LOT to unpack!

Star Trek: Picard

We have been humbled by our fans in the last few months. February 6th 2020 we opened pre-orders for 2 highly anticipated Star Trek pins and they quickly became our single best selling pins we've ever released. The support and positive feedback we have received on social media has been tremendous and all of us here at FanSets truly thank you. Here is a sneak peak at just a few of the Star Trek: Picard MicroCrew Character Pins we have coming soon:

 

Women of Trek

We are continuing to support the Women of Trek line with the next wave of them launching soon. This has been a long process working with CBS to get the artwork approved and I'd like to give you a sneak peak of who's to come:

  • 7 of 9
  • Hoshi Sato
  • Jadzia Dax
  • Silvia Tilly
  • Soji
  • Christine Chapel

AND one show special for STLV but you will have to wait for that one.

 

Speaking of STLV...

At this time we are still planning to proceed with Star Trek Las Vegas and the 2020 FanGeeks Party as scheduled. We will keep everyone updated as we get closer while monitoring the status of COVID-19. Coming soon will be the images for this years Master Set featuring the crew from Star Trek: Voyager. This set is an incredible tribute to Voyager as it turns 25 this year. 

 

PinFolio is Back!

We heard you! Many of you have been asking about the PinFolios for a very long time and I am happy to report that they are for sale, right now. We have 2 different versions at the moment. Our supply is limited but they will continue to trickle in. These are a completely different design from the ones in the past. Check them out!

The PinFolio Classic is very similar to the ones we previously sold. They are smaller and thin, and perfect for taking your favorite pins with you while on the go or at conventions. They have been improved with a clear soft plastic page insert so your collection is always visible and ready to show off.

The PinFolioShow Pro is the ultimate book for pin collectors. It a binder with soft foam pin boards. The inside is similar to a 3 ring binder so you can purchase additional foam pages to fit your ever-growing collection. It also has a separate foam board zippered in a clear plastic cover on the outside. This lets you show off your favorite pins all while keeping them scratch free and safe.
