Ok, so here are the variations of Ariel with Flounder. I wish I had them all in person to compare side by side as they are difficult to distinguish some from others in online pics. I verified these with accompanying pics of the backs of each. It seems the differences are in the varying blues/greens/purples in the backgrounds. This set is in order, 1-6, left to right, top then bottom. I really like this pin (I got variant 1 of 6) but I do wish they varied in a more noticeable way.
I just got mine in… and my “human” Ariel stain class pin has a chunk of fin paint missing. :/ And the back of the first pin has damage. I have the worst pin luck. Oh well, they are very lovely pins despite the damage.
I don’t think I’ll call them. The description is pretty clear about no exchanges on this particular item. I might try and fix the paint myself, or not. Come to think of it, I really do like the pins, so I’m not really too upset. 🙂
