    I am so sad that I am not standing in front of this board. It is awesome in so many ways.

    I’ve had the image of this board in my head all day and it probably changed 5 minutes after @PinFanatic posted the pic. Lol

    Yes and for some reason I was thinking the wonderland pins were for DLR only. So excited to have an AIW set to hunt for when I hit up the Food and Wine fest !

    While I think all the pins in this wave are pretty nice I will say that I am the least impressed with the AIW pins. The silver on the bodies of each card is very easily scratched and, for some reason, a majority of the QOH pins have an odd sheen to the silver part. It reminds me of the green sheen that oil has to it when it is floating on water and the sunlight hits it just right. The image below shows the oddness of the silver part when you angle it to the light. You cannot see the green of the wavy-type look but it is there if you look in person. Kind of ruins this set for me. On the other hand, the Seven Dwarfs pins are my favorite set from the last few years and they are Fantastic...

    I went to DLR yesterday and had zero luck with the new HMs. The CMs told me they go really fast, so I guess I just got there too late?

    I always wonder if there is anyway to time trading for HMs. It seems random to me (for the refreshes)… so too early, too late... I don't know if it matters.

    I would say it depends on the location, and also who is working on a particular day. At my resort when I am working I randomly will put pins out on the pin board at one point in my shift, and also give CM's pins for their lanyards. This way no one set of traders can come in the shop each day at the same time and trade for all the Hidden Mickey's, leaving none for others. Just my two cents.

    I had some wonderful luck this week. I completed the DLR Kakamora set! And I completed the DLR princess set! Two sets completed in one week is a first for me. DLR let me down with the HM set announced in 2017, but boy they just made up for it in spades this week! Yay!

    Like a few of the HM pins this year like Marie and Stitch. Given that will still pick up a few HM packs to get the select pins.

    Update: We got some mystery packs from the pin trading station behind Spaceship Earth and the one between England and France, we had four really good bags and ended up with about half of the surf boards and plushes, two chasers, plus a couple of others and a few duplicates. So far I've only seen a couple of the kitchen series on cast lanyards and pin boards but we're still looking for more!

    A friend who was there for the Trader Sam's mug release said CMs were saying mid-Nov for a restock.
