I just sent them a question about patches. I see the KSC Gift shop doesn't any for this mission either.
I just got a response from the SpaceX Shop. This Mission Patch is not yet finished. They'll have this one & patch "Collections" soon.

I, for one, am greatly disappointed that they don't sell the Merlin shown with the models. False advertising! ;)

Also, their shipping & handling ain't cheap...

What, you expect free shipping & handling on a Merlin?

Alas, they do not ship across the pond as yet.  :(

Well that's a pile of bollocks then. :(

Indeed! Not even to Canada!  :(

Wonder if SpaceX shipped to APO, FPO, HI, AK & PR addresses? Or just to Continental US addresses only for now. They are not that specified on their web site.

More info: The SpaceX shop will only accept an US billing address  :(

I guess they haven't set up any currency conversion yet(?). Or maybe they don't think there's a world market for their goods.

I wouldn't read too much into it.

I'm sure they're more doing this for the fans than to actually make money.

"Thank you for shopping at Shop SpaceX! Due to a high volume of orders one or more of your current items is on backorder (doh!)."

What was the SpaceX multiplier again?  I think I'm seeing a pattern.  :'(

I bought two SpaceX pens (one for home, one for work) and the "X" cap.

While the pens don't exactly resemble the Falcon 9, I do like fat pens better than thin ones.  Since they're made of metal, I'm assuming that they're refillable.

I don't habitually wear baseball caps, but I love the "X" logo.  Most baseball teams have a single letter on their cap.

I also bought the flying Falcon 9 rocket model, just because I could.  I haven't flown rockets since I was a teenager, so I'll probably just keep this one unopened as a collectible.

I already have a couple of SpaceX/Dragon T-shirts that I bought from the KSC gift shop at the time of the COTS 2+ flight.

I waded through several pages and gave up (124 pages for a party thread) but would like to know if there is a SpaceX launch party.  I arrive Saturday night at 7:30pm and will be working the launch so any tips would be appreciated and sorry I gave up looking for the punch line.

Hopefully there will be a new party thread for this launch.  This thread was for the May launch.  The idea was to keep the serious update threads clear of idle chatter, and it worked pretty well.

As for an actual launch party at the Cape, I don't know.  I guess you'll have to ask around.  But anyway, good luck to you and SpaceX!

I saw a flashlight today that projects the Dragon logo. I hope they start selling it.

I'm looking forward to the SpaceX glasses.  8)

Heh, that would be hilarious! Especially if it shipped late with the SpaceX multiplier... ;)

At T-minus 2 days the NSF Forum is showing the pre-launch buzz.

Go SpaceX!

Is that a 4 leaf clover on the mission patch (near Florida for some reason)?

Possibly signifying the 4th launch of Falcon 9?

Yes, that's a 4-leaf clover. More on the patch in article link below.
