Prototypes, Rarities, and Not Yet Released stickers

One of the neat things about GetGlue is they actively give us teasers of upcoming stickers. This can be via the mobile apps, their blog, or Twitter. Here's a collection of images for stickers that have been teased and are not yet released, rare stickers that most users will likely never earn, or are prototype images that were changed in the final release. As these go into production they will be removed from this page if the artwork stays the same. And before you ask, no, I don't know the requirements for any of these.

General Rarities
“Surfs Up! You’ve been all over the place.”

From GetGlue's Blog:
"The Surfer sticker rewards browsing to a number of objects within a given period of time. You can’t discover new things if you aren’t consistently visiting new items, right?
Surfer is a temporary honor. If you stop browsing you will lose the honor."

Absolutely no one has earned this one recently; GetGlue has likely discontinued this sticker.

Congratulations! You've won a Guru Giveaway.

In order to get this one you had to be the winner of a Guru Giveaway. Even though GetGlue has done some recent Guru Giveaways of small items and gift certificates this sticker has not been awarded to the winners. I don't think there's going to be anyone earning this sticker any time soon.

Super Gluer
Hey there, my name is [GetGlue user name here] and I am super-gluer.
I've been around Glue for awhile and get special treats, such as getting to play with betas, wearing limited t-shirts, and doing other awesomely cool things.

Another one that has to be awarded by GetGlue. Near as I can tell they haven't added anyone to the Super Gluer ranks for many months.

You're not getting this one unless you work at GetGlue, thereby making it one of the rarest stickers out there.

The Investment/Venture Capital stickers were released to commemorate GetGlue gaining a capital infusion. These three have only been awarded to GetGlue users that work for the VC firms.

Heart Glue

This one carries no description because it is not technically on any of the awards listings. It's pictured on your Followers and Following pages, though. You'll also see it repeatedly if you order you stickers. For some reason GetGlue thinks they have to cram three of these into every sticker shipment they send out, thereby keeping you from receiving three other stickers you have earned.

Prototype Comparisons
One of these things is not like the other...

Travel Channel
Initial Version

Intermediary Version

Travel Channel logos were added to all the initial Travel Channel stickers after their release. Apparently in the rush to get these Live someone forgot to put the branding on them!

Final Version

And then when the Travel Channel changed their logo the stickers were all changed yet again! (Orange border turned blue, image shrunk to make room for the logo, new branding on the sticker, etc.)

Resident Evil: Afterlife
This Group went visible for a short time on 17 Nov, 2010 and then disappeared. It was suspected that they were actual stickers but were not supposed to be revealed to the public yet. Fortunately they left them up long enough to snag copies of the descriptions, which changed in the final release. The actual images from the stickers did not change.

You've been infected--not by the Umbrella Corporation--but by this action-driven franchise. Share this one proudly. It's from our friends at Resident Evil: Afterlife.

Say "hello" to Chris Redfield. Share this one proudly. It's from our friends at Resident Evil: Afterlife.

How many kills does Alice rack up in this movie?! Share this one proudly. It's from our friends at Resident Evil: Afterlife.

Have you found Wesker yet? Share this one proudly. It's from our friends at Resident Evil: Afterlife.

Here Today, Gone Tomorrow
Stickers listed here have been removed from the listings after being awarded, but fortunately we've got images and descriptions to keep them immortalized!

She's a Great Shot
"Mama Grizzly" has the hunting skills to live up to her nickname. Share this one proudly. It's from our friends at TLC.

This sticker was released with the 5 December, 2010 episode of Sarah Palin's Alaska and then was subsequently removed from everyone's sticker listings about a week later. Although no official word has been given for the removal of the sticker, it is suspected that it was taken down due to pressure from TLC and various animal activist groups.

Countdown Fan
Who was the Worst Person in the World tonight? Not you! That's 5 check-ins/visits to Countdown with Keith Olbermann. Share this one proudly. It's from our friends at MSNBC.

How DARE You, Sticker
Better stay on Olbermann's good side, but with your 15 check-ins/visits to Countdown with Keith Olbermann, you're off to a good start! Share this one proudly. It's from our friends at MSNBC.

This pair was removed from GetGlue's MSNBC stickers group following the end of Countdown on the channel.

The Hunger Games Countdown
You're already counting down to the release date of The Hunger Games movie on March 23, 2012. The highly anticipated film is only 365 days away, which means there's time to read (and reread) the excellent novel. Share this one proudly. It's from our friends at Lionsgate.

This sticker appeared on the listing on 22 March, 2011 and then disappeared either later that day or in the early hours of 23 March, 2011. According to the sticker it's to commemorate the 365-day countdown mark for the Hunger Games movie. Apparently no one at GetGlue thought to check a calendar to realize that 2012 is a Leap Year and has an extra day in the mix. After it disappeared the sticker was expected to go live on 24 March, 2011, the actual 365-day mark, but it did not. There is speculation now that either the deal for the promotion of Hunger Games fell through, or that the release date of the movie will be changing.

Teased But Never Released

Jonah Hex
Probably the only way any of us will ever see this one outside of the teaser roll on the old Mobile Apps page.

Nova Scientist
Has been teased for ages on the background of GetGlue's Twitter page, but no sign of it yet.

Gossip Girl
Another one that was teased for ages on the Mobile Apps page and has never been released.

Captain Jack Sparrow and Don't Steal Me Stickers
This pair of images was included as a link with a Tweet from September 15, 2010. The text of the Tweet noted something about "sticker pirates on GetGlue" (possibly referring to people taking the sticker images and using them as an avatar or bootlegging them and making their own sticker without having earned it from GetGlue) and then included the link to the above image. This tripped off a storm of check-ins to the four Pirates of the Caribbean movies' pages with the phrase "Don't steal me stickers!" as well as various other Johnny Depp-related and Jack Sparrow-related phrases. Neither of these images is an actual sticker that is currently available.
