    Also, didn't the company try an Ariel puzzle sometime back that had to be cancelled? I would want to see an IRL photo.

    They did have an Ariel puzzle a while back. It wasn’t a mystery I think it was LE 300 and you had to buy all six pins as a set. I didn’t pre-buy because Ariel was (obviously) on only ONE of the pins and all the others were “background” (or in my mind, pins of “nothing”) it was over $100 and I couldn’t see how these six pins were better than a jumbo pin!
    I wonder if the thought behind this “mystery” set is pin collector’s greed that they are hoping to prey on. Hoping people will believe that the 50 complete sets will actually be valuable and as such ppl will be eager to buy the pieces and race to complete sets so they resell/markup those few. I wonder if that’s the thinking behind it.
    I know a number of us were talked into the “LE 100 variations” that proved a bust.

    Who in their right mind would buy this? They are all in mystery bags. There are only 50 of the pin needed to complete the set. There is a high likelihood of duplicates since they are being sold as mystery bags. There is a very low chance of actually being able to find the LE 50 pin to complete the set. This couldn't be a bigger blatant cash grab. Let's do the math there are 3850 possible mystery bags with these pins and only 50 of the pin needed to complete the puzzle. At least the chaser pins for the puzzle sets in the parks aren't required to have a full set. This is absolutely ridiculous.

    So they get $38,500 and anyone who purchases these blind bags gets $200 of worthless pins that no one will want and probably a high unlikelihood of completing their set. What a great opportunity but quite typical for this company.

    Not to be redundant, but those pins are so cute!

    Gah, they were supposed to wait for about 10 days. Now, I have to decide if I want to chance it and wait until I get there or send my Dad, even though I just sent him on a pickup on Thursday.

    Update on the ACME puzzle... It's not a puzzle! I posted this in the Pinopolis thread, but in case people aren't following that, here's what Kristi posted on Facebook:

    "Pinopolis Pin Games So I got a little more info.... I have updated the post. It is not a puzzle! It is a set of the characters in the artwork. 20 pins in all. So you do not have to have the le50 pin unless you want to be a completist! [​IMG]:) the pins will be blind bags for $10 each and are a part of our HotArt Trading program. They will be available for purchase at the Orlando event and there is no limit!

    The artwork is available for sale through the Shanghai Disney Store. Retail cost is $900. I for one would not likely purchase this amazing piece of art to stick pins in it.... HAHAHA

    Sorry, little bit of Kristi humor. Hope this update helps!"

    Okay, this makes much more sense and may be something I will participate in. Could be fun.

    Thanks!

    So certain ones will have certain characters? And only the chaser will have all the characters?

    The only other thing she said about it was: "Some characters will be individual and others will be in a cluster... all will be previewed at the event."

    They were similar. They had the logos of the different houses, but there were also characters from those houses on them, too.

    Okay, not a pin release, but I was reading a merchandise update on the Disney Food Blog, saw this and thought of a few people. This update was for Animal Kingdom, do not know where else this shirt may be sold.

    A word to the wise: When you see parks merch, check both the ShopDisneyParks app AND plain-old DS.com. This shirt has been available on the website. It's currently sold out in most sizes. But there are often ways to get parks merch without being in or near the parks (or bugging your buddies in CA and FL, ha ha).
