    Well im quite relieaved. Nothing that I need! Yay! Of course I’m sure there will be other PTDs, but no major “crap, gotta get ‘em” pins.

    It looks like it is very good Tessa lives close to DSSH. But she may need to set second and third alarms to not oversleep.

    before you can acquire them, first you have to find them!

    New signature picture coming soon

    I don't blame our resident wizard! I'm just firmly convinced that the people in charge of pins at Disney take personal delight in torturing me. #sadbuttrue

    Also , just my personal opinion , but I'm not 100% sold on the actual Dark Tales pins . I still kinda like them but I'm rethinking my signature .
    One that's definitely staying is the Jumbo though , I've seen a few pics of it and love that one

    I can't answer for David, obviously, but I've seen a fair amount of grousing in the Facebook groups about how the actual pins (surprise) don't look as good as people expected from the artist's renderings. It's always hard to tell who on FB is just being tongue-in-cheek (or trying to drive down prices for their own benefit, ha, by de-hyping pins). But one sample comment was "Lady Tremaine just looks high." Ha ha. It will be curious to see if people really are disappointed in the actual pins, and if that mellows out the market value a tad, or if the rarity and villainous-ness keep them overpriced. (I just want my darn Queen of Hearts, who looks pretty much exactly as pictured. )

    I haven't seen any of the actual pins yet, but those complaints sound a little strange, but not totally unreal, I suppose. I hope Chernabog ends up looking good. Not that I'll ever be able to afford him...

    Well, I can't argue that Lady Tremain looks a little whack... lol. And holy evil, stoned Cruella, Batman. Looks like Cherna was spared the ugly stick, anyway. And Jafar and Yzma look pretty good. I mean, these aren't WDI quality villain profile pins, but they're not horrible.

    I think this is a key point. Dsf people (or at least the ones who gripe most loudly) are comparing them to wdi quality which, by and large, is far superior. Ultimately, I'd say is unfair to compare them, but some of these certainly didn't translate as well. Both Cruella and Yzma look a little boney, even Jafar. But, hey, when people are paying like 200+ for some of these after market and they're not plated in Disney gold which Walt himself blessed in his dying moments, then there will be some grousing.

    Which means, there will be some grousing. XD
