    I am planning to attend their Orlando event (will not attend Las Vegas event.) So would love to work with others to trade for the lanyard Le 200 pins. Post what you have for trade here and what you want. Hopefully this will facilitate obtaining pins for our collections.

    Looking for maleficent, Cheshire and stitch...

    I will look at others post and if you have any of the three from Vegas, I will look for your wants in Orlando in August.

    I believe that they're going to be at all events. So, if you're going to the Orlando event, they'll have the same ones... I think. I'm looking for the three Ariels and the blue Aurora that was previewed at the Anaheim event.

    Here they are for real. It looks like OE size and quality.

    According to the web site description of lanyard trading the pins will remain on the lanyard until all 200 are traded for and then they will 'flip' to another pin style. So if for example they have Stitch LE 200 on the lanyard they will keep restocking Stitch until they run out and then will flip or restock with a new LE 200 pin style. At least that is how I read it.

    So if Stitch is released at Vegas, I would think many will trade for Stitch and those may run out and trigger a 'flip'... thus I would not see Stitch in Orlando. But who knows how it will work in the end... this companies word really means nothing.

    I have pictures I took at the DPT trading event yesterday. I should have taken them with another pin so you could see the size, but they all seemed to be ok. I didn't take the pins off the lanyard to see what it said on the back.

    I'll post pictures in the pin trading gathering thread.

    I'm just really confused by how this whole thing is going to work and am looking forward to a report from Vegas that may explain a few things:

    1. Although the above picture (and other pictures of the lanyard shown so far) shows a lanyard full of LE pins, they said that there will be 5 of these pins per lanyard. I am thinking they will have more than 5 total pins on a lanyard, So will they have multiples of each pin on the lanyard to fill it up? Or will they also have a mix of non-LE pins and you have to pick the right ones? Or is the number they are saying incorrect and they will actually be full of LEs like they show?
    2. They also seem to indicate that each of the five colored lanyards will have different pins, at least in the words. Which makes sense since they were showing a total of 25 "reveal" pins to start with (although there is the other photo showing 35). But again, the photo of the lanyards shows the exact same pins on all colors of lanyards.
    3. They also indicate you can trade for a total of 10 pins - 2 pins per lanyard, 5 colors of lanyards. But how will they control that? It's a free event so even if they are giving out color-coded tickets at the door, what stops someone from using their tickets, leaving, and coming back in a few minutes later to get another set of tickets? They going to be checking IDs and tracking names, etc?
    4. What's the point of paying extra for early entry? The only difference is 1 more hour of activity. But presuming they are going to have the lanyards available the whole time (which I would think they must), and since you are limited to a grand total of 10, and they are going to flip them as needed, seems the only thing extra you get for your money is an hour more of trading time with other participants. Any maybe a pin that is on the initial lanyards if it is very popular and all 200 get picked up in the first hour.

    Nice thoughts... I wonder about the benefits of early entry too.

    OK, so there are 35 pins that are revealed; how many are concealed? I guess I should have asked that.

    Would be interested in the Ursula bust, and most of the Marie's (basically any but the stock sitting pose one)

    There are zero pins from this first wave that I need for my collections, so I'll probably just go for the most popular characters of the bunch so that I'll have traders in case I need any of the concealed pins in the future.

    Three nights at WDAC, so could net yourself 30 of these or... 60 if you can convince your other half. :)

    Yup. But since we are dependent on a flip which takes place after 1,000 trades (5x200), might be a lot of duplicates depending on how many people are there. But hopefully it will work out well for trading for the ones I don’t get. I can definitely see lots of trading activity on these going forward.

    So glad others are seeing the potential I also am seeing... and if we are aware of what others are looking for, it will be easier to target the trades.

    So post what you are looking for and after the event... what you have to trade. Let's rock this. :)

    Great minds et al... :)

    I may have a bit of [possibly reluctant] help at the Orlando event... if there is something worthy to trade for.

    Thought I would give this thread a bump.
    So excited for those attending the event in Las Vegas this weekend. May I suggest a 'live from Vegas' thread to allow the rest of us to live vicariously through the few who attend?

    Post your Vegas lanyard trading pin wants here.
