    The new Simba block is actually about 3/8" bigger:[​IMG]

    I measured Moana against Mickey and she is almost 1/4 inch bigger (but she is a tad smaller than simba.)

    Another observation for the blocks: Dumbo is also about the same size (block measurement) as Moana. Simba and Lady are full pin on pin (ie, their upper torso is front pin and lower extremities is back pin.) Moana, Dumbo (and Mickey from first set) are not pin on pin. All have a recessed letter in the block.

    Agree: with @tiffychann's assessment. The wave pins are small. I still think they are my favorite from the set, but was a bit disappointed in the size. So my favorites order: wave, blocks, rainbows. But actually really love these pins in general and glad this is the one I happened across on their Facebook page.

    I’m still bothered we have M for Mickey and M for Moana SMH

    Funny about each traders focus. Since I collect both Mickey and Moana, I am over the moon for the Moana block and glad they didn't limit it to a one or the other situation. :)

    Also... is Bambi pin on pin? If yes Bambi also looks bigger. So if the block is pin on pin perhaps the conclusion is the pin is bigger?

    Edit: although the Simba pin just looks bigger than all of them (overall).

    Maybe it’s a good thing. DSSH has the opportunity to make a block for every character instead only a possible set of 26. We could have Snow White or baby Rajah now. No need to feel bad if your character isn’t chosen. There is still hope. We might get Boo if the add Pixar to the mix.

    This pin came pretty fast! And I definitely wasn't expecting it to be this nice and pretty. Also the size is bigger than I expected! Thanks @DisneyJ & @momin.ator for the heads up :) [​IMG]

    Thank you Merlin for the pickup! This will go in the center of the Epcot shadow box I'm making![​IMG]

    I got my most recent ShopDisney pins, which were actually packed fairly well! Also, I realized I had slacked off on my P.I.N.S face collection and started a push to track down the remaining ones, more to come...

    Back when the Pluto key and key pin came out, my wife didn't get selected by the evil entity known as Merchpass. But some kind souls on DPF did, including @MerlinEmrys. Merlin was kind enough to sell me the items at cost, and also offered to pay for shipping due to a miscommunication that was entirely not his fault. My take was that it wasn't fair for him to do that, and would pay for it, which I did.
    A few weeks later, the keys came, along with something extra: Lady Tremaine. Also included was a note saying that he hoped that the "Sass Queen" zap made up for the shipping confusion. Well, yeah Merlin, I would say it does! Anyway, Merlin, all I can say is WOW, I'm extremely grateful for you generosity, and THANK YOU![​IMG]

    I purchased a few pins that arrived this week. @Fins4pins had a great sale so I got two of the Disney Disguises. The Tiana HM was a zap. It was the last I needed for the WDW set so another set is complete. The Dewy Main Street Magic was the last I needed for the WDW set. It was a great price so I bought it. The Aladdin was a pin I realized wasn’t in my set so I corrected that error.

    All in all another great week of pin mail.

    Great mail day today!

    Sir Reginald, Duke of Chutney disguise pin and Zootopia calendar page from @MerlinEmrys , and my order from someone on Facebook for the Zootopia pins from the recent HKDL Pin Trading Carnival (plus she threw in the Miss Piggy as a freebie). With these, once my DSF rainbow Judy pin arrives, I'll be a Judy completist again.

    I think they are just toast. :3

    They are a lot bigger than I expected! I was thinking they would be standard Hidden Mickey-sized.

    It arrived! I don’t normally post mail during the week, but some wonderful pins arrived. I bought a great old pin set that I never thought I would own. It was such a long shot that I had removed some of the pins from my wants. The set was at a great price so I thought “why not.” YOLO!

    The set came with the original display box which is probably the best part.

    The pins are in great condition. Pardon the bad pictures.

    Definitely official :) I’ve had the pleasure of owning a few and they are BEAUTIFUL pins! Congrats @slbrabham I’ve never seen them in the crown display case and they look all the more magnificent all together like that!

    Thanks. The case is a cool piece of clutter for me to dust. :D It’s really detailed and well made. I wish Disney made more cases or boxes to highlight the pins they hold. (Disney is getting better, but this is what is possible.).

    They are official Disney pins. The set was from an event at WDW in the early 2000s. I’ve seen the pins individually sold, but this was the first time I saw all of them including the crown box.
