    So I splurged on the $295 framed pin set at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party this year(2019) and upon closer inspection of the individual pins in the frame noticed the Evil Queen pin was a really poor likeness of her. It’s something I didn’t expect for such a lofty price. I thought I remembered the ones I had seen looking a little better than that and I didn’t see the one I had purchased until later because it came still wrapped up in its original cardboard box.

    Upon investigating further and comparing between sets selling on ebay I noticed that there appear to be two different versions of the Evil Queen completer pin being sold at MNSSHP this year. There is what I’d call the ‘bug-eyed queen’ that I ended up with when I bought the $295 six-pin framed set shown here:

    And then there is the more flattering version of the queen that I would call the ‘classic queen’ which is selling with the cheaper $100 five-pin boxed set here:

    It doesn’t appear limited to just my framed set because I’ve found the same thing to be true in images from other sets I’ve compared between. I feel sort of cheated that I splurged on the expensive set and got a lesser quality completer pin. Mine looks more like the bug-eyed villain from Coraline(Other Mother) than the Disney Evil Queen to me. It's a bit saddening because this was my first Evil Queen pin and, besides the really cool background, the reason I chose to purchase the framed set. Has anyone else noticed this discrepancy or am I wrong here? Just be aware of this if you were planning on purchasing the framed set.

    Hm.... it certainly looks like they misprinted the eyes, and forgot to screen print on her eyelids. How bizzare!

    Interestingly enough, it reminds me of this pin:

    I would try to return it. That is a horrible pin. It looks like an error pin and you should not be forced to keep it.

    I would hope this was just an error in one or a few of the sets, but here is an image of the queen pin in another $295 framed set I can see on ebay:

    It's looking like the same 'bug-eyed queen' on at least 2 of the 500 limited edition framed sets. Possibly more.
