Title: Machinae Supremacy Keythings
Post by: Leissi on December 03, 2011, 08:01:53 pm
Hello hello, and Greetings to you all!

Some might remember when I years ago sent out these keythings.

They looked like this. (http://i.imgur.com/NT4yL.jpg)

Anyway, I sent some 15 of these to members of this forum and some IRC lurkers at least, and I was thinking if anyone still has them left.
I know I do, as it's my home keything  :)

The bottom line here is that I was wondering if those who still have them could make a post about it, preferably with an image!

Would be greatly appreciated, I want to know what they've seen during this time.

*Edit: There were only 20 total of these ever made, out of 2mm acidproof steel, so they're kinda a rarity/curiosity.

:O Never heard of those, cool stuff! (Maybe it was in a thread that I didn't read?)

Can't remember that either, then again, that must have been like 5-6 years ago.

I still have one of them! It's sitting on my desk because I found it a bit too impractical as a keythingie, but I still love it :)
I'll take a picture of it soon :)

That looks awesome, but what is the size of it? Looks too big to fit my pocket.

Thus "Years ago" in the original post.

That looks awesome, but what is the size of it? Looks too big to fit my pocket.
erm, I can't give you exact dimensions, but here's an image of it next to a standard 0.33 litre can, your average soda holder.
This one was a little beaten up, and was never sent to see the world. (http://i.imgur.com/iSHtV.jpg)


I hope werevolvo decides to someday take a photo of it, I also know ozziz (not sure if he exists in here, but he does in IRC) has one.
I never received any postcards :((

Oh I'm sure you both would, but alas, you're fresh out of luck.
I'm holding on to the last two cut, and I'm not giving them away, one being beaten and one being my keything :P

I suppose I could possibly get a hold of similar, carved (really really shallow) collectibles.
If I remember correctly, however, the hole would be too small to fit on a standard keyring.

So they would be just that, collectibles.

I will post an image of them once I inquire about the possibility of a) getting them b) getting a picture taken.

Edit: It apparently might be possible to get them, even though they don't really look like much. Also, image will be attached later on.


Also, the band's opinion/permission for these has never been asked, but I hope They won't mind.

Hello hello!
Sorry for the slight delay, but here's finally pictures of the keythings.

Well, the 'prototypes'.

First shot (http://i.imgur.com/jhGl3.jpg)

Second shot (http://i.imgur.com/GqZnc.jpg)

As you can see, these aren't cut through, but rather laser-engraved. It's still acidproof steel :P

The same size as the second batch, aside from the cut.

If someone (anyone) wants these, they're yours! There's nine total available, so it's semi-exclusive.

It's a limited time availability offer.

Free fanmade band-related collectible, yours for only a postcard!
It'd be nice if you included a doodle of something or anything on it.

It'll take until next year in any case.

Priority is for those that don't already have the cut-through model.

So far 3 have been requested, 7 more left.

WANT. Signed.

Yes, PM me on the forum or reach me through IRC.

Good morning.

It seems there are still 4 more left, first come first serve basis, if anyone still wants them.
Title: Re: Machinae Supremacy Keythings
Post by: Aeon on December 31, 2011, 04:25:52 pm
Omg freebies!!!
Nah, I don't need them, and I'll leave them for more dedicated fans/older fans/whatever.
They look kinda cool btw, but my pockets are already full of stuff and I have way too many keys and things attached to them.

You don't necessarily need to carry it in your pocket.

These are relatively unique collectibles (20 laser-engraved and 20 through-cut were ever made).

Without the band's consent ;P

But if you don't want one it's cool as well.
Title: Re: Machinae Supremacy Keythings
Post by: MarioMaster100 on January 01, 2012, 03:10:51 am
I would like one, pm-ed.
Title: Re: Machinae Supremacy Keythings
Post by: Leissi on January 03, 2012, 09:13:09 pm
I will start sending these next thursday, 5th of January.

There's still one or two available, if anyone wants.

Post by: Tolkki on January 12, 2012, 06:35:10 pm
Received mine today, it's nice and now it is in my pocket. If only the edges and the corners wouldn't be so sharp, I might use it as necklase.
\../, for you Leissi ;)

Yeah, mine arrived about earlier today. The edges are rather sharp, but I don't think I'd use it as a necklace or keything anyway - my keys are full of crap. For now it's going to sit by my computer until I can find a better and more inventive use for it.

THANKS BRO!

Also, hidden messages? Either I'm a complete idiot or I couldn't find one...
I'll attach a pic later, for those that don't get one... :D

EDIT: I'd properly insert it, but it's huge. (http://hadoucridford.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/leissi.png)

Oh and um... Your special drawing is coming, Leissi, I just have to draw it first!
Title: Re: Machinae Supremacy Keythings
Post by: MashedByMachines on January 13, 2012, 05:16:12 pm
Yay I got mine too, thank you :D Let me know if you want anything from me in return.

Oh, and what's the hidden message? :O I don't get it :D
Title: Re: Machinae Supremacy Keythings
Post by: yas‮ on January 13, 2012, 05:46:39 pm
I've received mine too. It's awesome. Big thanks!
Though I couldn't find any hidden message too. Even tried to look for invisible ink, but no joy! :)

I could send you a postcard back, but you'll have to PM me your address.

You got one left Leissi?

I can give you some coin for the effort, PayPal.
Title: Re: Machinae Supremacy Keythings
Post by: Leissi on January 15, 2012, 04:00:21 pm
hmm.

Looks like I got 3 of these left, 2 of which are already reserved...

so it comes down to if I want to have one myself, or send them all!

I'll sift through my PMs and such later tonight, and inform who gets to have it.
Title: Re: Machinae Supremacy Keythings
Post by: WilllemNL on January 15, 2012, 11:57:50 pm
It's not that important to me, so if you have to choose, put me at the bottom of your list.  :)
Title: Re: Machinae Supremacy Keythings
Post by: Traikan on January 18, 2012, 07:27:30 am
Woo, got mine today! It is every bit as stylish as expected, many thanks!

I'm currently scouring the package for hidden messages.
Title: Re: Machinae Supremacy Keythings
Post by: Leissi on January 20, 2012, 10:19:25 am
Roight. Since the forum has some bullsh*t restriction (not really) of only sending PM to two people at a time, I need to post once more.

THE CHOSEN ONES are as follows:
Hadou
Zephyris
Crazywater
MashedByMachines
yas
machinaeFREAK
Tolkki
Mariomaster100
Traikan
Ark

If you haven't received a PM from me at this date (20th january), please send me a PM so I can give you instructions on how to act upon receiving.


If you didn't find yourself in this list, tough luck, you didn't get picked this time.
We'll see again in a few years if there's gonna be more of these, possibly out of a different material.

Hmm. I'll see if I still have the photoshop file of what I sent you - I might just have to PM you the file, because I sent it about a week and a half ago...   :-[

EDIT: Seeing as you obviously haven't received my package, I exported the photoshop file and PMed you a link. I'm annoyed that it hasn't arrived - that's £1 and something that I spent on postage wasted.

I've recently received 3 bars of swiss chocolate with a picture of a ninja killing a dragon (which was awesome!) and a card with the Song of Time on it. It was also awesome, but I'm afraid to play it due to time travel paradox.

Thank you.
