    Can anyone explain to me why these are all of a sudden hot again? The addition of a backing card makes them better somehow? I understand popular characters selling out fast but since when are Pete and Eeyore prime characters? I'm hoping that nothing I collect comes out until this frenzy dies down, lol.

    They'e larger than the previous PTDs, for one. Also, Eeyore has always been a popular character, especially for PTDs. Even the second one still is valued at a minimum $50, often more. Pete isn't popular, but he was an LE200 PTD, which got people interested.

    Plus, the PTDs have to flip during today's Coco release for them to get a new set out. Otherwise, no new PTDs until Monday (if the PTDs sell out anytime after the Coco release is done)

    Sorry, this discussion about the backing cards or that the pins are larger somehow add value to an otherwise unpopular character just reminded me of this...

    And do these people make enough money off these pins to not be working? I mean, who has time to stay at DSSH for two days in a row?

    They have one pin with Carl and Ellie as their older selves sharing a milkshake. There is also a pin with both of Rapunzel's parents.

    And I'm just not going to let my four year old know that this pin exists.... Deny, deny, deny. Or at least until I can somehow trade for it. Why is she an Eric collector????

    XD I love that episode.

    So far, though, none of the new wave of PTDs have really been very UNpopular characters, at least not to the extent of previous flips. Fred is obscure except for BH6 collectors but the pin looks badass. Pete is the closest to an unpopular character so far but he was LE200. Lionheart isn't the main character but even if the character isn't popular Zootopia is still a draw. I'm not saying that the flip madness isn't crazy, but the releases have been, I think, justifiably popular considering a lot of people have this week off and can go to DSF in the middle of the day.

    As mentioned, older Carl and Ellie were released specifically as a couples PTD. They also have a WALL-E and EVE couples pin. Other PTDs with two characters as a couple (though not the big size with the background) are the previously mentioned King and Queen of Corona, as well as one with the Church Mice from Robin Hood.

    So they said that after the Coco release was concluded, they'd do no more flips until Monday. When is a release "concluded"? When the pins sell out? At the end of the day? When are we safe from the flipping madness?

    I would say, when it sells out it's concluded.

    I think that is a key part of what is happening.
