    Beware of WDW 2017 Hidden Mickey Scrappers

    So, on my recent trip to WDW (from 5/13 to 5/27), we discovered that the 2017 Hidden Mickeys from WDW have been scrapped. Not all of them, just these:

    WDW/DLR shared release of the Villains Chins - Ursula, Scar

    Attraction Icons: Figment, Dinosaur, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Dumbo

    Fruit: Yellow and Red fruit (that's the lemon and apple)

    Chaser: Ursula Chin and Figment Icon

    While the pins were glossy (very), there was underfill, so it looked like soft enamel rather than hard (very obvious dips) and the backs were different. The words were more smooshed together and were larger too (specifically the words that said Hidden Mickey Pin x of 5), maybe by 5-10%.

    Yeah, I found a Figment at Disneyland on my last trip and a friend just brought me a Figment from WDW. It's very obvious that the one I got at DL is a scrapper. These people are quick. Grr.

    I haven't been to DLR yet, but did see someone post that they got some bones and they are in CA, so I'm assuming they found them at DLR.

    It is pretty obvious which is the scrapper and which isn't when you have both in front of you. I asked to see the backs of suspected scrappers from CMs at WDW and then once I saw them, did not trade for them.

    Grapes chaser has been faked as well. I get a sense that the chasers are easier to fake.

    I also had a fake Paw Print - I *think* it was Pumba, but my memory is not serving me 100%

    I do too! Probably because of the lack of color.

    The Attraction Icon ones are pretty obvious to spot. They're REALLY bad. The fruits are a tad trickier, especially the Lemon. I'll see if I can hunt down some pictures.

    Sadly, I scrapped mine already I should have thought to take pics. I can tell you on mine the backs had the infamous border issues, and were not shiny like the real ones.

    Yeah, they're super glossy and the fruit, especially the watermelon, have raised details.

    I've also noticed a general shortage of new HM orders coming into the parks and WDW resort as a whole fwiw.

    Many pin friendly CM's are having trouble finding new pins to trade.
