The Weekly Wave

Welcome back to the Weekly Wave! Let’s see what news, updates, and announcements have risen to the surface this week!

Destiny 2 has a cool new Pride emote for all players to show off!

Just like last year, Bungie is celebrating and showing their support all throughout June for Pride month. In addition to adding rainbow colors to their website and logo, Bungie has introduced a FREE emote for Destiny 2 that players will love showing off in-game. They call it the Rainbow Connection emote, and it looks like this:

We thought this was awesome, and we can’t wait to start showing it off. So, how can you get the Rainbow Connection emote? Well, since it can’t be unlocked in-game, you’ll have to start by heading over to Bungie’s official site. There, you will find a code for this specific Pride Month emote (TK7-D3P-FDF). Once you’ve logged in, click the ‘Redeem Codes’ option from the drop-down menu.

After you've entered the code, you can go back to Destiny 2. Just make sure to head over to the Tower and talk to Rahool, that way you can claim it and add it to your emote slots. Also, Bungie has made the code available for last year’s Transmat Goodness emote. If you missed it last year, you can redeem it and use it this year. Just use the code featured on their site and redeem it using the same steps. Have fun!

New Michael Whelan art has landed!

Do you remember the cover of InQuest Magazine’s June issue from 1996? If so, this new arrival art from Michael Whelan should look familiar. Even if you were too or don’t recall that issue, let’s just say this is definitely a piece that you will want in your collection. It’s called Serra Angel vs Hurloon Minotaur, and we couldn’t be more excited to have it printed on our products. Check it out!

Serra Angel vs Hurloon Minotaur

As an award-winning artist and sci-fi legend, Michael Whelan is a true master that has crafted some of the coolest creations we have ever seen…and Serra Angel vs Hurloon Minotaur is one of them. What sets this artwork apart is its exclusivity—it was commissioned exclusively for that MTG article and has never graced any other merchandise before or since.

This makes it an extraordinary piece that truly captures the essence of its subject matter, resonating deeply with fans and collectors alike. So, it’s awesome to have it printed on our playmats, mousepads, and other premium products.

In honor of getting this momentous art on our site, we are working with Michael Whelan on an incredibly exciting special opportunity for this launch! Over the next month, we will be randomly selecting 50 people who buy either an unstitched standard 24” X 14” playmat or a stitched XL Extended 36” X 18” mousepad featuring this new design. These customers will be receiving an additional artist-signed copy of the mat they purchased, which we will ship out to them separately over the next couple of months. Those selected will receive an insert in their order letting them know that they will be receiving an extra mat, and to keep an eye out for a separate shipment over the coming months.  

So, if you want a chance at receiving a copy of this legendary design that’s signed by Michael Whelan himself, be sure to get your order in for either an unstitched 24” X 14” Playmat or a stitched XL Extended 36” X 18” mousepad as soon as possible. The recipients will be completely randomly selected and this free gift will only be live while supplies last for the first month after this design is launched.

That’s all for now! Stay tuned for our next edition of The Weekly Wave for more fun stories and updates!
