It was the genius giveaway of convention season this year. Debuting at San Diego Comic Con, each day you were able to pick up from the DC Comics booth a free fake casino chip, tied into Wayne Casinos, as seen in the Flashpoint Batman title. The Preview Night chip was pretty rare in comparision, but the big one was the $100 black chip, given away by Bob Wayne to people who asked the smartest questions or wore the cutest costume during the DC Comics panels.
And DC Comics continued to give them away at subsequent shows. Bleeding Cool even got a set (minus the $100 chip) to give away.
But what about those people who just couldn't get to a show? Must they resort to paying over the odds on eBay?
Not a bit of it. Because retailers who order bags of the Flahpoint Promotional Pins/Badges to accompany the six Flashpoint trade paperbacks for February – at a reduced price than originally sold to retailers for – can now also receive Wayne Casino shops for free.
Buy one bag each of the Flashpoint pins, and you'll get a free set of Wayne Casino $1, $5, $10, $20 and $50 chips. Order two bags of each Flashpoint pins and you'll get two free sets, and one $100 chip. DC are also giving away Flashpoint pin promotional displays to the 250 first retailers who order them.
So if you want the chips, time to get pally with a retailer…
Will this help boost Flashpoint TPB sales? Place your bets folks, place your bets…
