Just saw this on Facebook. Apparently next month there will be a Pride release and additional orientation flags will be released! And supposedly there will be more than what is previewed here!

Received UPS notification that my cursive cutie set is to arrive tomorrow. Something to look forward to. :)
Congrats! Mine says they will get here on tuesday. But not sure if they really will make it all the way to Sweden that "quick" But I hope! Cant wait to see them in real life. Ive seen some photos and they look amazing! Then I just have to decide which to keep and which to trade and what I want for them. Hoping for some grails pins for me!

Dssh posted to their Instagram that the store was open and they had new OE pins in store only. Only 2 on the post were Jessica and a stitch we will be ISO. They are in the street sign style like the ones from last year. Would love to see a stitch in the style that released with the cursive cuties!

I....just had the worst thing happen with my Loungefly Fox and the Hound order.

Out of 10 boxes, I got *8* Chief pins! I just wrote to Loungefly and told them that they need to mix up their boxes, because in 30 years of collecting various blind box/mystery items, I have *never* had that happen before, and it was obviously a case of all the pins of a certain character being sipped to them together, and then the packers just grabbed handfuls from one area and threw them in. That technique is fine...IF the boxes have been randomized. But, in this case, it doesn't seem to be the situation.

Loungefly isn’t super great at mixing, I got like 6 out of 10 boxes with the lady dog house.

Which is hilarious to me, that the parent company is so bad at something that the other stores that carry their stuff can do with ease (although they're having some of their own shipping issues...).

Makes me feel like I did the right thing, though, by contacting them. I just hope they don't brush me off with some "Oh, that's just how blind boxes are" mouth service. I tried to word it in a way that displays that I know how blind boxes work, and that it was definitely a weird occurrence. Basically, I just want them to find a way to mix the boxes up. I know they don't usually ship themselves, but if the other stores can manage it, they should be able to, too.

You can buy a retail box off entertainment earth for most of the mystery pins. It might be a better investment than hoping to get what you want in a series of individual boxes.

Oh gotcha! Mine were from BoxLunch actually so they aren’t great at it either. Lol

That’s basically the answer I got from BoxLunch so I hope you get a different one. They did give me $10 in vouchers.

Oh, man, I wish I knew that before. I went to blue culture and bought another 12 boxes. I did a quick Google before i ordered, though, and entertainment Earth didnt come up. I'll check later and see if they have them.

Kind of brings up an interesting point, though...if they pack pins in the retail displays, and we assume that they took care to assure that those contain a variety...then why the clusters? Are they pulling from boxes not set into displays yet? It's all just really weird and/or lazy, because they obviously know that they SHOULD mix them up, if they're doing it for their retail displays anyway...

I am not shocked at the canned reply.

The thing is, if it was 4/5 doubles, I would have been like, "Oh, man...my horrible luck strikes again!" (I'm sort of infamous in certain circles for just how bad my "pull" power is...even when I was a kid collecting X-Men cards). 6 is pushing it. But 8??? Never had a happen before.

When I buy blind boxes, I expect a RANDOM assortment. It's not random to stick your hand in to a pile of a single character and throw them into a shipping box.

I completely agree, it makes me feel like someone just lazily grabs them.
