The SpaceX Shop is now taking overseas order. I've just put in two orders and it's so quick to put in your address and payment details. It was all over in a flash, you then get a email with the order number and that's it.

I now cannot wait to get my order in and they are going the add the CRS-1 patch to the shop's web pages this month, and that's good. Now as we no longer have to get the fake patch off eBay.

Just got in my first orders from the SpaceX shop. I have to say I've got to the moon before them, as I am over the moon with the quality of the items.

The t-shirts have got very good prints on them, the baseball hat is a flex fit type so no messing a round with the hat band to get it to fit and I just love the water bottle its just a great design with a built in hook, you just press to open the spout and you can fill it with 24oz of liquid. I'll be putting in more order to them with this quality.

I just have to wait for the patches to go on the web page now.

SpaceX will be introducing a limited edition set of their nine Dragon and Falcon patches as early as later today (Dec. 7). Only 200 sets will be offered.
The limited-edition mission patch collection includes a full set of all SpaceX mission patches, a total of 9. From the first launch of the Falcon 1 rocket to the most recent Falcon 9 mission to the International Space Station, you can review and relive SpaceX’s historic launches.

Where on their website do you see the set listed? I just checked and do not see the patches yet added...

I just searched "patch" on the homepage linked above, and it came up... Mission Patch Collection. Only US $30 for all nine!

Just bought two sets... now very glad I didn't succumb to temptation and buy any of the knockoffs on eBay.

I just ordered a set from U.K. Their site was very satisfactory to use.

Sincere thanks to Robert and 'Goesto11' for alerting and facilitating this purchase.

I've just ordered a full set of 9 patches for just $30, but the only down side is that the shipping to the United Kingdom and Europe is $35, so the total for us this side of the Atlantic is $65 a set.

Though saying that, an exact same set has just been listed with a start price of $99.99, and a Buy It Now for $150, shipping to the U.K. is $25. So buying direct from SpaceX is a bargain.

I see that seller has now reduced the Buy It Now price down to $129.

Yes, it's always painful when the postage costs exceed the item cost but it's something we, the British collecting fraternity, have come to expect. At least this way there's a good chance they'll arrive. My order is in too. Thanks for the heads-up.

Agreed. Thanks for the heads up. My wife doesn't know it yet but she just bought me a set for Xmas! Won't she be surprised when I tell her...

Update - post 2 hours: When I told her I ordered them and that they were only $30, she asked me, "Why didn't you get two sets then?" So, I emailed SpaceX!

Update #2 - I went ahead and ordered a second set. I then received an email from "Mikaela" saying that they couldn't combine my orders as the first one was already being processed. However, she(?) did offer to refund the shipping on the second set though.

SUPER customer service! (...and I'm done...)

SpaceX sent a set of the patches to collectSPACE for review; they arrived today.

The patches are accompanied by an information card with basic details about each of the nine flights and an embossed metallic/holographic Dragon logo.

The set is titled, "SpaceX Mission Patch Collection | 2012" — perhaps implying that SpaceX may release each year's flight patches as a set.

As for the patches themselves, all appear to be a new production run as compared to the few examples I have of patches that were produced at the time of the missions.* The current set uses more metallic threads and a tighter stitching for a much cleaner look.

Interestingly, the one patch without metallic thread is the CRS-1 emblem, which has a sheen but is much more subdued than the prior eight embroidered designs.

(* Judging presently from photographs, as I am on extended travel and do not have access to the physical patches at the moment.)

With a little help from a friend in California, my girlfriend recently started a collection with the first 8 SpaceX patches. It looks like they had been available to employees as a set before CRS-1 flew. I guess there's no easy way to get our hands on just the CRS-1 patch?

I thought for sure that a set of 9 patches would be outrageous in price....but $30! Wow, what a great deal! So glad I found this place to stay updated on all the new things happening!

Not sure how reliable this is, but according to the admin of SpaceXTalk.com, less than 90 sets remain in stock as of this morning.

Seconded. I ordered a couple of SpaceX caps this AM and Mikaela credited my shipping w/my patch sets. Gonna rock the SpaceX lids when I shoot 90+ at Sun City Grand over Christmas.

I ordered a set early this afternoon. Great price! Looking forward to them. Any idea how long it may take to receive using the US Postal Service postage option (I live in suburban Sacramento, CA)?

I've just gone on to order a set and they are listed as 'sold out'. I think they were a little too limited in number. Maybe they'll do a rerun if demand is high enough.

I too hope to see their online store continue to sell patches. Hopefully they will begin selling individual patches for each mission as they approach in the future. I would like to think that these 200 limited patch sets were an experiment to see if their patches would sell. I think if this is the case then SpaceX now knows that there is a market with a high demand for their patches.

Wow, that was quick.

Emailed SpaceX to reiterate that the market is there for more, and for future mission patches.

I was very interested in these patches too! I was on a business trip for three days and read about the patches today. Wanted to order them immediately, but I had to realize, they are all sold out...

The set that was listed on eBay closed after just one day for $89(US). I wonder how soon the buyer will see this set and how soon they will realize how their set came to be...

Now it will be wait and see for other sets to be listed. It will be interesting to see the list prices, if nothing else.

One cannot control what others do but I hope that many of the 200 limited edition patch sets do not end up on eBay especially with outrageous prices or bids. I say this because SpaceX may see it as well and the patch sets we saw and were able to purchase this one time will be the only time.

Again, we cannot control what others do and I have nothing against people wanting to make a few extra bucks. However, it has been painfully hard for those of us who enjoy patch collecting to finally get to add these wonderful original patches to our collection and at a super price (THANK YOU SPACEX).

I am afraid though that others will hurt us in the future from obtaining these wonderful patches and those yet to come. So I ask a simple request to all of those that were fortunate enough to purchase one or many of the limited edition sets, "please have a moment of pause before you start seeing dollar signs." I ask this with respect and for respect to collectors and SpaceX.

I was not able to get one of these sets, so I am looking on eBay... and I would give 60 USD for the complete set! Unfortunately I missed the auction for the 60 USD set too.

It would be real great, if SpaceX would produce more of these sets, that are sold out at the moment, because I think there are more people like me, who missed the chance to buy the set!

And for those interested, they have removed the sets entirely from their site! Searches return no results.

Even better than that, my patches arrived this morning in England UK. Really nice patches and info card with hologram Dragon logo and the small bonus of SpaceX bag. Great service, thank you SpaceX and all involved in the project. All success for your future flights to ISS etc.

Just noticed a listing of the set exactly as sold by SpaceX. The price?
Starting Bid $149.95
OR Buy It Now $250.00

Who said 'Christmas is the Season of Good Will'

I hope this kind of activity does not deter SpaceX from selling directly to their fans in the future.

Received my patches today. I like them — very nice. No plans to list mine on eBay. I'll be keeping them in my own personal collection. I hope they'll continue with the patch sales. Can hardly wait for their patch for the first crewed Dragon mission.

I received my set today and I love them! I also like the SpaceX plastic tote bag that was in the package! I do hope they release some of the patches individually.

Got my set yesterday, but without the tote bag (perhaps because I didn't order one).

Received mine today along with a couple of hats and the Falcon 9 Rocket Kit for display. All items are very fine quality. The patches came with an 8 1/2 X 11 full color cardboard poster showing each mission patch, launch date, and launch site.
