    I'm curious, what exactly are the new release rules? Or do you think maybe they didn't have anything to
    follow up with and so they are just making everyone wait until something is produced?

    I think the new rules boil down to: they release new PTDs whenever they feel like it (with the exception of a guaranteed flip if the current set sells out during a flyer release).

    I think they are just spacing them out more, which to me makes sense. By releasing them one right after the other as they had been doing, it A) creates the craziness of folks just camping out/getting right back on line to get the flips and B) burning through all the pins in a short period of time. This way, they keep interest/excitement going through a longer period of time and B) avoid a campsite in front of their store. Of course, it makes it a little trickier to grab pins when they do release them and makes it more of a "luck" issue, but that may be more fair in some ways. I could definitely see them putting them out more on a monthly or so basis to have stuff happening throughout the year.

    I guess my biggest thing about this is that it makes it harder for those of us who live out of town (like different state) to visit
    the Soda Fountain and benefit with a nice pin. I wouldn't drive all the way over there to eat ice cream. :)

    Okay, so while we wait, I thought this would be an interesting little promo (it's for the premiere of DS9, but I just remember the tagline of "It waits...")

    Whoa, they used O'Brien and Quark as the promo characters? That's an odd combination!

    I know! I didn't remember that at all. Just the whole "it waits" bit...

    The benefits probably aren’t very good and the pension plan sucks.

    But I really do wonder how people can do that. The cynical side of me figures it’s just part of several scams.

    I love how they did Darkwing Duck earlier and now Launchpad. I wonder what other Disney Afternoon characters may show up in the PTD lineup.

    I've been holding onto the Disney Afternoon PTDs I've been getting, so I'd probably keep Launchpad, sorry!

    Was on my way to Hollywood for something else’s but managed to swing by and grab Marie and Launchpad. The line is still short but more people are starting to arrive.
