    I'm conflicted on Nala haha, I kinda almost wished they had skipped her, cuz she just doesn't have the same grace and charm as the others, cuz yeah, her paw is kinda bland.

    I like the Jessica, she looks "Weird" because that's how she's drawn tho, it's a whole spoof on the ideals of what men thought women should look like :p

    I think Meg and Pocahontas are the winners in this set. I wanted to like Esmeralda, but she looks way too white washed? And I dunno, she doesn't stand out as much to me as Meg does.

    Got everyone! There was a line but they were still handing out wristbands when I left. I’d guess a 1-2 dozen sets left?

    I do hope everyone has good luck in tracking down the ones you need. But just remember, the price is almost always highest day of. Give it time, let things cool down. Don't go crazy. ;)

    (says the person rapid-fire refreshing to see if anyone has taken his trade offer on FB XD)

    and don't let resellers discourage you. Ebay prices are one thing, fb prices are one thing, but true value is another. Things always settle eventually. :)

    And, while you are testing and practicing your patience... keep an eye out for the less patient among us who suddenly have to sell their traders to raise funds quickly. The older grails you are looking for might pop up at a price you are willing to pay.

    Maybe less popular ones will go down in price. At least that’s what I’m telling myself about Poca, since I have not a snowball’s chance in hell to get Briar!

    Definitely think that Meg won this set. Her design has such balance (and the background is awesome!!!) As for my least favorite, probably Nala. :/ The pose just isn't dynamic and seems awkward.

    Fave: Mulan or meg!!! But I’m surprised by how nice Jessica looks in person.
    Least Fave: Nala

    EDIT: someone on Insta says they’re sold out!

    That seems to be the trend for all WDI releases lately. They sell out in a day or at least by the end of the week. Makes me wonder if they have any pins on the racks left.

    This 3rd set totally surprised me with it being releases so soon after the last set or am I just loosing track of time.

    So, I’m starting to realize that there are more places than just the Disney theme parks, and maybe the local Disney Store, to get new pin releases. What is the best way to be in the know about what’s coming out and where??? I need to start bookmarking stuff, getting notifications, and knowing when to check sites if there are no notifications, etc. I need to buy! Lol. A trader at Disneyland told me she bought some OE pins for dirt cheap at some sort of a Disney convention. I got the impression is was direct from Disney who was clearancing out some overstock. Any tips, tricks, or general advice is appreciated .

    ShopDisney.com usually loads new items (anything, not just pins) at midnight, Pacific time on Mondays (so between Sun - Mon). If there are new items, someone will usually post something, like with the Princess Silhouette series.

    https://disneypinsblog.com/ For all sorts of pin information

    Facebook, and Instagram especially for things like new Box Lunch / Hot Topic pins. If you don't have a store local to you, they will show up on their websites but sort of intermittently so you may have to check daily.

    The Disney convention was likely the Disneyana Fan Club formerly known as the NFFC. It is not affiliated with Disney (although Disney will often send people for presentations). It happens twice a year. Traditionally, the main convention has been the week of Disneyland's birthday in July. However, last year D23 was scheduled for this week, and so the DFC moved their convention to October, and they have stuck with that again this year. They have a smaller event in Jan or Feb. Someone here will usually post a thread about Room Hopping and the Show & Sale day. Room Hopping means going to people's hotel rooms in the convention hotel, and is a free activity. The Show & Sale are tables in a big ballroom and does have an admission cost. But both are absolutely not "direct from Disney." (in years past WDI and Soda Fountain had tables but then became too popular to continue without overshadowing the rest of the event). They are people selling their personal collections or stock. So like Ebay, online sellers buyer beware and watch out for counterfeit / scrappers.

    And if you haven't already, get the Disney Parks Shopping App for your smart phone. You can order many open edition pins direct from Disney, and not have to pay reseller markup. And also look at the calendars on Pins | Collections By Disney

    I still think Jane is the winner. Meg almost feels like cheating because there already a lot of pins that are kind of similar to this (poor Meg gets so few action pins).

    I agree that Meg takes this round. Did they have her pose for the pin in the cold or is it just me :eek:? I starting to like all of them more. Hope the price doesn't go too high.

    Wow. Up close I’m not so sure about them. Which is perfectly fine! I just saved $butt-ton on Pins!

    Maybe the fact is, some of these heroines aren't that attractive in profile. Yes, the angle is off on a few--but, like, I don't care that Jessica is an exaggerated character design. It works head-on, but the shape of her face is u-g-l-y in (this) profile. Her jawline is total Pegleg Pete! And as for Jane ... I could become an Olympic gold-medal-winning ski jumper off that nose. In motion, the character's unique features work. Frozen like this, with these angles, not so much.

    That said, I really hope anybody who wants one (or more) of these is able to get one eventually.

    And is no one talking about Meg’s hand!? I mean if someone offered me Poca for a good price I’d still probably jump on it, but now I’ve cooled my eBay search and FB/IG skimming.

    Nala looks like she is about to accept Simba's proposal. But stuck out the wrong hand/paw.

    Jane is my favorite, followed by Pocahontas. (I don’t collect Pocahontas and don’t want the pin, but I think it’s a lovely design).

    My least favorite is Nala.

    Yeah, I noticed that after my cranky rant, ha. It is definitely mutant. Luckily the rest of the pin is distracting ....

    Thanks for posting!! And wait, is it just me or is Meg's face a totally different color from her body?
