    I almost always buy the HMs in the pack when we go. Sometimes they're sold out. We do trade for them when we see them, but this is a way I can be 100% sure that I got authentic ones, especially if they had been out for a while. It's fun for us to see what we get. The last time we went, I picked up a few packs on our way out and threw them in my carry-on. I found them four months later when I was cleaning stuff out. I was super excited to open packs when I was missing the parks. Plus this was a great way to get traders.

    The silver packs are the current HM, the chasers are also included.
    The ones at MK were gone almost as fast as they we put up,

    I had no idea this was a thing (or maybe I just wasn't being observant enough). I know they had the Magical Mystery and the different colored pouches but had no idea they released the current HM series in mystery sets. The more you know! It is a good idea to make sure they are authentic (looking at you Epcot retro logo HM pins).
    Thank you for the update! I figured they would go fast but it prevents people from all the hassle of tracking them down. Now the market may start to get saturated (unless they hoard them all) which is probably for the best!

    Usually when they get ready to drop the next wave, they start putting out the current wave in packs. So it stands to reason we should see a new wave in a few weeks and this wave will only be in the packs.

    Wow this is great news to hear. I also didn't know about this but excited to hear it since I'll be able to go quite often I hope in the upcoming weeks so hopefully can snag a lot to trade them out!

    They've been doing this for a long time (2005ish?). For me, it's a MUST. I don't want scrappers, and it's almost impossible to tell if a HM is a scrapper or not, unless you see a cast member pull it out of their bag directly. I would have never been able to get my Duffy heads without them.

    Also, not everyone has the kind of schedule that would allow for "doing the work". Besides the reality that you have to compete with HM hunters (whether legitimate or resellers), you also have to take into consideration people's real lives, like work, school, and family.

    That said- I do like that they wait until the end of the run to release the baggies, so people get the best of both worlds. I think this is the quickest turn around time I've seen on a baggie release.

    Anyone doing pick-ups? :D

    Hey Guys!

    PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT!

    I just finished going through the 2020 Release Thread and organizing links to the pictures of pins released. Finally.

    However!!!!

    A lot of links I could not include because the images have been replaced by ugly boxes. Check the first post in this thread, ugly box.

    Why!!!

    It seems like Facebook expired all their links at the end of the year. So any pictures copied from Facebook will not show in perpetuity. BUT! Pictures uploaded via Tapatalk will!

    Also, if an Artland UK / Pulse Gallery pin sells out, they zap the page and poof! go the pictures.

    This mostly affects Asia Releases and DSSH releases, so if you want to be able to see the pins in the future, be mindful about saving the pics and uploading them to a more permanent storage.

    End PSA

    Price on the four-pin set is I think $28.99. Something close to but a little under $30 for sure. No clue on location.

    I can't believe I had no idea this was a thing still haha. Maybe they all sold out so fast before I could get them. It definitely is a great approach to getting authentic pins, I will probably have to pick some up when I am there next time!

    It is also very true that it allows people to get them that aren't able to "do the work" since it definitely takes a lot of time (and walking)! Glad they let people get the best of both worlds!

    A new Pixar pin set is being sold in a pop-up in Hong Kong. I was told it was LE but not sure on edition size. I have one coming to me (if they are able to pick one up today) so I can give more info when it arrives.

    If you're splitting the set I'm interested in Russell.
