    If you see one, I'd love a picture. However, I thought they weren't going to "flip" until the traded all of the pins on the lanyard. I really hope they do add different pins from the revealed pins to the colored lanyards.

    Have an awesome time.

    Looks like they did it very differently from how they said they would. Different pins on each lanyard rather than all the same. That’s a huge difference. So 25 different pins all available at once rather than 5. That changes everything. Also looks like a mix of the reveal pins and others, presumably the conceal ones.

    Did my initial round of lanyard trading and stepped out to get some food. Saw @timeerkat on the way. Will be back soon!

    In line (again) for golden magic pins.

    Got lanyard pins but some pictures weren't released. Those are pink dreses ariel, yellow ballgown Ariel, regular stitch, and a few others. There is a karate stitch and a blue aurora that wasn't shown.

    Woo wee! I’m all tuckered out.

    Alright so for lanyards, you get two tickets for each color lanyard (for every 10 traders you buy). Around 1:30, they said they’d refresh the lanyards with new pins at 2pm. Then at 2, they said they’ll just scramble the pins on different lanyards at 3. No new pins have been released as of yet. Supposedly if a set of 5 sell out, then they’ll release another set of 5. Apparently, they will release new pins tomorrow.

    Today, they also played Pin bingo, where the buy in was one LE 300(?) or less Pin for 2 cards. There were 2 games and I believe 2 winners who split the pot of pins 50-50.

    I made some great trades today, so I’ll post those when I get back To my hotel.

    Sounds like a great time! I'm glad you had fun. That must have been frustrating to keep hearing different things on the lanyard trading. It will be interesting to see if they swap them tomorrow just for the sake of swapping them. I do have to say I wish they would stick to their own rules on at least something.

    Thanks for all the awesome reporting! That's a lot of nice pins available. Although I do wonder why anyone would spend $2K on that framed set. It's just the lanyard pins with the Stitch added in, isn't it? Sure, you get them all this way, but since you can get as many as you want for about $10 each, and presumably trade your duplicates for ones fols get at later events (or possibly just get them tomorrow if they decide to ignore their flip rule), why pay 4 times that for the set? Am I missing something?

    Darn, I was really hoping they'd preview some new designs. Specifically, something Lion King.

    Hi!

    I got most Of the pins. In case anyone checked my updates on FB , pink dress Ariel, Alice, Lucifer, Rapunzel with fry pan, Flynn Rider and five other pins were not released today.

    Instead, three surprise pins - 2 karate chop Stitch and 1 blue Aurora were released.

    I am going through the orders and will modify all invoices tonight.

    I will see if I have any extra blue Auroras.

    I have been told that 4/10 not released today WON'T be released tomorrow - instead, they will be released by Pin Masters at various locations.

    I can't post my pin haul but will send to @watzshakinbacon and ask her to post it.

    Sounds kind of not cool about the lanyard misinformation and than the pin set for sell is no big suprise. This is all about the money and has definitely taken away dome of the Disney Magic. Seems things could be done in a much better fashion but it's new and a money making venture after all.

    Hopefully but still way over priced for a few pins they had made. But it is pretty cool if you can make your own sets and than control the perceived value. If these pins do not sell out they will probably end up online with a right up about getting LE pins that are exclusive and at a great price. I will keep watching and hope it gets better.

    The lanyard frame set is definitely either an AP or PP. if you will note, the two Karate stitch pins in that frame are facing the opposite way that the ones released in lanyards are.
