Hey guys, I posted this over at The Division Agents forum a few days ago but I wanted to share with you, too, and thank Massive and Yannick and Ubisoft one more time for making me feel like a cosplay superstar!

http://www.division-agents.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=372

"OMG you guys, I am freaking out!

So rewind a couple months. I had emailed Antoine about my cosplay and asked if they could export a 3D model of the comms device so not only I, but anyone who wanted to cosplay could download and 3D print their own brick for a cosplay. They loved the idea but, as they were prepping for E3, they didn't really have the bandwidth to do anything.

So I made my own computer model (which you can download and 3D print if you want: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-LKRF ... sp=sharing) and I started working on my agent cosplay. Yannick contacts me and asks me to Skype him. I was like, hey, I've never called SWEDEN before... So I get ahold of him early in the morning and he tells me they want me to send cosplay pics and to make another comms device to send to them! I was totally flattered and agreed but asked if they could send me a couple patches. Yannick says he will totally send me some patches and I totally squee.

So I finish my cosplay for Comicpalooza, take some good pics and add some photoshop, and despite the lead time, it was still a huge effort to get the comms device printed and prepped before E3, but I sent it out there! I totally wanted to go to E3 too, but there was a family reunion we had to go to that had been planned for months and months.

So E3 comes and I am getting all the awesome news about the game. But then... there was no Wall of Fame at E3, so I was kind of bummed. I emailed and asked Yannick about the patches after E3 and he apologized and said he would get them out to me.

I had had a long day today at work, and on my way home I was wondering if those patches would ever come. Then I find a package in the mail!

It was sooo cool! It was like they sent me a swag bag of all the stuff I would have taken home if I had been able to GO to E3!

There was the newspaper, which I had seen the front of, but NOT the cool ads on the back. And then a poster of this lovely lady:

There was this book excerpt which is really really cool to read through!

AND PATCHES!

But to top it all off, Yannick sent me a nice little letter with a thank you. AND A BETA CODE. :o 8-)

Thank you Yannick and thank you Massive Entmt! Time to work on cosplay 2.0. *drops the mic*"

All I can tell you is that Massive has them and I don't think they have many left. Create something cool for the community and you might get one!

Strategic Homeland Division

The Strategic Homeland Division is a hidden section of the government, set up to deal with, and neutralise, any threats in the case that society collapses, and the usual lines of operation (police/government/army) are not available. It is comprised of hundreds of sleeper cells of ordinary people, who have been trained and given the necessary equipment to start taking back the streets once society begins to break down. Due to them being ultra-covert sleeper cells, members of one cell may not know those from another. However, in The Division, you play as one of these Agents, and it is your duty to reform society as you see fit.

Edit: Congratulations RenegadeFire! I think I can speak for everyone here and say that we're very jealous!!

There were only 500 of the posters made from what I was told at E3. The patches have been around since E3 2014 (maybe even earlier, but thats when I got my first set and another this year). Ive not met a better crowd than the people at MASSIVE and Ubisoft in general. So much love for them.

Feeling fame to get a poster, though I'd really love to get these patches. They look just too amazing as patch and I definitely need one :D
Any idea if there will be some merchandise shops for The Division?

Good question!

I'm sure we'll get something off the official Ubisoft shops; likely shirts and other small things like beanies and hats, maybe some sort of jewelry like necklaces and such.

I'd love to see them team up with McFarlane Toys or NECA and produce figures of the characters we've seen! I'd buy the hell out of those! (especially if they could make some of the gear modular) XD

Theres actually not alot of Clancy stuff out there other then stuff that came in collector's editions and is resold. Ubiworkshop is like a deadzone when it comes to Clancy which is really, really depressing. Ive been asking for YEARS to get some Ghost Recon stuff up there.

Keelan562

Indeed.

Only thing we've gotten outside of the items that were part of the game releases has been the Sam Fisher figure from SC: Conviction. :/

I have one Ghost Recon shirt and bandana I got as an employee at GameStop during the launch of Ghost Recon Future Soldier, but thats about it other than Collector's Editions.

Other than the stuff I got at E3 of course. :) <3

( I still want a polo like Antoine's though! )

I'll admit, the polos they were sporting were pretty sweet.

Still grateful for the "I Survived The Dark Zone" t-shirt, though. ;D

My favorite swag was the watch, though im afraid to wear it cause I dont want to break it.

I do wish I could have been one of the lucky ones to have gotten the whole Division bundle the Star Players got, though I'd have been equally as happy with just the watch.

It was sort of last-minute that Antoine and Yannick invited me there, and it was luck that Yannick got me the t-shirt with something like 10 minutes to spare (he grabbed it as things were being packed up!).

Still, I'm incredibly grateful to have been asked to have been a part of the event (and being asked back for that final night the Lounge was open). It's a memory and feeling I'll cherish for the rest of my days. :3
