    It is something like 50.
    With a minimum like that, the coin sounds like it may be a good product to go into production

    Re: Dented Helmet coin

    I'm pretty sure the minimum order to start the run of coins, for the 501st ones anyway, is 100.

    I think it should be the TDH angels logo since that is the logo of the boards and then maybe a Fett helmet on the other side, or the bantha skull either one. I would be in for 2 for sure.
    I like the idea of the TDH angels logo on one side and a Boba helmet on the other. Then if they turn out to be a hit (which I think they will), we can do angels/Jango and then angels/Zam coins. To make it the TDH trio set.

    Whatever the design turns out to be, count me in for at least 4.

    Re: Dented Helmet coin

    Very cool idea! I'd be in for one for sure. Our Colonial Marines group just finished a USCM Challenge Coin and it's really cool! Don't want to be showed up by the Colonial Marines do ya? Otherwise, come DCon7 time, you know who'll be buyin'!

    Maybe something like this for the front. Simple, but bold, and straight forward.

    Who?!? J/k. There is no doubt that the customs have been given their place but I think the big three are still Boba, Jango, and Zam, with the variants being just that, variants of Boba... actually Jango is little more than a Boba variant, but at least he was in a movie.

    Re: Dented Helmet coin

    Don't think I like this but here is one idea for the helmet on the back. The only cool part is that as the coin wears, the helmet will naturally "weather"!

    Like Art said, the Charlie's Angels pose is TDH default "logo" and should be the face of the coin.

    Re: Dented Helmet coin

    I really love that idea as well, although the side with the boba helm seems to be missing something, or seems a bit plain. I think it would look cool if it had a ring around it that said "the dented helmet" in aurabseh, or something similar...just to add a bit more pizzazz. Also, about the coin weathering, Yes that would be cool, but these coins don't really weather!!! If they are made similarly to the 501st ones I have, they won't weather at all due to the hard epoxy enamel. I've carried mine in my pocket almost everyday for quite some time, along with loose change, nails, screws, and even the occasional spark plug. Mine still looks like brand new!!
    Also, I ran this by a few of my fellow garrison members that we may be develpoing a coin in the near future. I had a pretty good response, and I really think we will have no trouble when it comes to getting rid of these or trading them for other challenge coins. I really hope this becomes a reality...pretty excited about it!!

    Re: Dented Helmet coin

    Re: Dented Helmet coin

    Well, it certainly isn't my call, but personally, I would rather have something more recognizable as one of the charaters on at least one side of the coin. The angles logo is cool, but beyond TDH, most folks always ask me what its supposed to be....even people that are pretty big into SW!!!! I showed a few of the ideas to fellow garrison members & everyone of them asked, "what is the angle logo supposed to be"???? Don't get me wrong, I still think the angels logo should be on there, but if we have just a "dent" on the other side, Most folks aren't going "get it" Whereas if we have a fett helmet, or maybe a mando skull on the flip side, everbody will recognize that right off the bat!!! Then again, I suppose this project is primarily for us TDHers, and we all know what that stuff means!!!! I guess I would suggest that we have a few differnt designs & maybe have a vote?????? Just my 2 cents.

    I am having my wife drawing up some draft designs of those that have been mentioned you would all like to see and we can vote what combinations we like the best.

    Re: Dented Helmet coin

    That's just it: it's a TDH coin. It's for us. If everyone "got it" then to me, it just wouldn't mean as much. It kind of gives it that mystery. It almost makes me feel, (Bob, dare I say it) elitist.

    I like the idea of having something on it that only us hardcore Fettists would recognize and know. Like the TDH shirt with the squeegee tool on it

    yeah, i also echo the idea that the TDH coin should just make sense here

    i'm not digging the boba face on the other side though... i still like the idea of the

    Re: Dented Helmet coin

    As I mentioned in my initial post regarding the Fett helmet coin side, I am not real crazy about it and the more I look at it the less crazy I am about it. While I love the "bantha" skull... It has been used so much that I really hate to use it... even though it is an awesome logo. In regard to the Angels logo, if this is to be a TDH coin, I don't know how it COULDN'T have the angels logo. That is our official logo and has been for years. Does everyone "get" it? I am sure they don't. But this is not a generic "Fett" coin we are talking about, this is a TDH coin. While we certainly don't have to use the exact angels logo layout I posted above, I think if this is to be a TDH coin, we need something like it on one side... The other side is still up in the air. I am hesitant to use the dent because it is so obscure and something like the bantha skull is too overused... So what do we go with? What defines us as a community?
