    Mulan is definitely my favorite, especially because she's in her blue dress! I'm really glad they included both Mushu and Cric-kee. My least favorite would be Nala even though my boyfriend and I collect the Lion King. She was a nice surprise addition to the set but they could have added something else to her pin.

    Of course these come out right after I've made a tuition deposit.

    First of all, thank you for being one of the seemingly few people who actually understands that Jessica is a *caricature* haha. I think her character is way more interesting and nuanced than people give her credit for!

    And I totally agree about Esmeralda. I'm really bummed because I thought this would be like the crown jewel of all Esmeralda pins, but her pose/background is pretty unexciting, and her skin is WAY too light. She's darker than Pocahontas, for crying out loud.

    Jessica isn’t bad! She’s just drawn that way! ;)

    And man, does Esmerelda have some abs in that picture. Girl works her core!

    I wish they’d done the red dress for this pin. I feel like it would have made it a little more fancy.

    Also, isn't her red dress the fancy dress? maybe they went with the peasant dress theme like with the other heroines

    She makes Jasmine and Ariel's stomachs look downright flabby! xD

    I totally wish she was in her red dress for this pin. It definitely would've been much more vibrant and eye-catching, although I think Erin is right about them using mostly peasant dresses for this series, I guess because they wanted to play up the "heroine" angle instead of "princesses." But Esmeralda isn't even a princess, and is actually a literal hero in the film, so I feel like the rule shouldn't matter with her.

    Plus I just want more red dress pins in general (a red dress PTD is one of my top hypothetical grails.) Actually, I just want more Esmeralda pins in general... another reason why this release is so depressing is because it will probably be the only new Esmeralda pin for at least a year. And it's pretty much unattainable. </3

    Seconding all of this. Not to mention it's only like, the third Hunchback pin PERIOD in a very, very long time. Why are they always sooooo hard to get? I might be a little bit mad about my trade for the Frollo profile falling through ignore me

    That said, if anyone would like to trade my entire trader book, my life savings, and my soul for that Esmeralda, the offer is open. Yup.

    Man, I'm trying to save money to maybe go to the upcoming pin event and they come out with a JANE PROFILE?!?! I'm taking this personally, Disney.

    I wish (or not wish for my wallet's sake!) I could be excited about Esmeralda but I agree her skin is way too pale and there's something with her face... I think her eye looks weird to me...

    So now I've had to give myself a handicap of 4 specific Heroine pins that don't count in my promise to stop buying pins to save money for the event. XD

    The heroine set is really REALLY nice, but I just went to that local bidding website and they're already reaching $200. Someone's even selling a Sleeping Beauty from the past set for around $800. I get that this is probably normal for 'that one site on the internet', but I WANT ALL THE PINS AND NOW I KNOW THAT IT'LL NEVER HAPPEN FOR ME.

    Yeah the Briar is kind of suspicious to me because she was going for 200-250 and then she randomly jumped to 400 on the sold listings? F-i-s-h-y

    Oh my - I just looked these up at auction and people are asking for hundreds a piece and some have been bid up to that much. Is this typical for these low LE cast member pins? If so, I need to move to Anaheim, work for Disney, and get into the pin scalping business, lol.

    Not sure if any of you have seen on social media but I’ve seen lots of reports that many of the pins from this Heroines set are very damaged and scratched, so those of you also hunting please be careful and make sure you see photos of the actual pin before buying! The Jessica is this raffle is a good example:

    I'm not seeing it. What's wrong with it? It just looks like the protective plastic.

    If Nala is everyone's least favourite we can hope her price will settle down... *wishful thinking* XD

    If you zoom, it looks like there *might* be discolored or chipped spots in her hair. But it's so hard to tell through plastic -- the reflection or dust on bag can be deceiving. I'm more concerned about Esmeralda and her depigmentation on cheek and neck -- but again, that could be reflection!

    It could be, there are definitely a few chipped areas though. Just thought it was worth mentioning as I saw someone on Instagram who was at the release saying many were quite damaged!

    The lighter parts on Esmeralda are definitely reflections on the outside plastic.
