Ranger pin
 
Hey, y'all.

I'd be interested in aquiring a Ranger pin...if anyone know where I can find one. I know they are kind of expensive but I want one nonetheless.

Re: Ranger pin
 
i was wondering, now that species other than Minbari and Human are allowed in the Rengers, are they going to change the Pin?

Probably not, considering the ship we saw at the end of RISING STAR (i think thats the ep name, the 4th season finale) had the human/minbari Ranger symbol on it...

Yeah. That's where I saw it. Damn thing's been out of stock forever! I managed to get my hands on an Earth Alliance pin, though.

Re: Ranger pin
 
I got a non-official one at a star trek con a few years ago. its pretty nice, but I'd like an official one, just to keep.

funny story, the con was a fan run convention called Babel-Con3. It was a complete failure, like 50 people showed up. We had Stephen Furst their though. he was pretty cool. Unfortunatly, BC4 will probably never happen, and gone is my opportunity to make a Zathras Costume and wander around gibbering about the One...

I treasure my official Ranger pin. I think I paid about $70 when the fan club was still going...

They're quite nifty. 50 UK is about what these days? About $120 US? http://www.b5lr.com/ubb/images/icons/shocked.gif

More like $70-75 US, I believe. (The exchange rate should be around 1.40-1.45? Correct me if I'm wrong.)
Which is still a lot of money. http://www.b5lr.com/ubb/images/icons/frown.gif

I think I'll stick with the tapes. http://www.b5lr.com/ubb/images/icons/smile.gif

Re: Ranger pin
 
Raider, any chance you could let me know the location in the UK where I can get the official Ranger pins? Most on-line sources don't have them anymore, and I've been to several cons and memorabilia fairs, but no luck. http://www.b5lr.com/ubb/images/icons/frown.gif

Cheers if you can help...

I have heard good things about the Ranger pin good quality and looks great.

I also want one but I hear they are rare and there are allot of cheap copies(bad quality and theivry) out there.

Actually thats one thing I hate about buying stuff on the internet you need a credit card same with e-bay(where I want to buy allot of stuff)..all I have is an American Express but not many places take it for some reason.

The reason is simple enough. Credit card companies make a large part of their profit by charging a Comission on each sale. American Express charges a Higher commission than VISA or Mastercard. So, it cost the merchant more. A lot of merchants, particularly Online merchants, figure that anyone with Mastercard probably also has one of the Other cards, so they don't bother to accept American Excess. http://www.b5lr.com/ubb/images/icons/wink.gif

Re: Ranger pin
 
Quick question guys. Since they are about to release a new movie and possibly a series about the rangers, then do you think that JMS might re-release the ranger pin??? You know make it a little easier for ppl to find a get a hold of one since all the online dealers dealing in the real ones have sold out and have been sold out for quite some time now. If anyone hears of where a real one can be found online then please share the wealth. Gracias.

I'd bet on it. JMS doesn't really Like the endless merchandising and money grubbing indulged in by The Franchise, but he Does think the Fans deserve a few toys. He's a fan himself, after all. he understands.

Plus, JMS hates the Rip Off artists who are preying on us right now. He'll try to do whatever it takes to cut them off at the knees. Including making the Badges available. I'm hoping for a revival of TheStation.com since it included an emporium where such things could be purchased with a guarantee they were Honestly produced.

Re: Ranger pin
 
Sorry to dredge up an old topic, but I would love to have an official (glass) version of the pin if one is still available anywhere. The links in this thread have since been deleted. Thanks!

Re: Ranger pin
 
Probably the most official ranger pin was the one offered by the B5 Fan Club. The 'jewel' wasn't glass, though - more of a blue/green enamel. They're hard to find but you might try searching on Ebay for one.
