    A question for pin collectors

    Soooo there's a pin event this upcoming Saturday (Feb 17). I'm not a hardcore pin collecter but I do buy the pins that I really like, and one of them is on that day, pictured here:



    I'm a huge Bambi fan, and an even bigger ThumperxMiss Bunny fan The thing is, the cast member I asked said they were going to be limited edition, 500 is the # I believe she said. Since the artists will be there signing, I'm scared that the pins will be in high demand, so I'm just wondering, what are the chances of me getting this pin? I don't think 500 people are going to be there that day, but I may not be able to go that day so yeah... I possibly will have to go some other time, hopefully Sunday...

    Cute pin. I would say you have a pertty good chance. I don't think Bambi is in release, and tumper is a secondary character.

    A day or two after, there are sure to be CM's trading it.

    Better view or your pin:



    This is what usually happens at artist signings.

    People line up, they get wrist bands, and then they open the doors for people to buy pins.

    Here is what will happen that day:

    Wristbands will be distributed entitling bearers to the opportunity to purchase limited edition pins released in association with the product release and signing. Guests wishing to obtain a wristband to purchase the "limited-edition" pins, will not be permitted to wait in line prior to 6:00 a.m. Wristbands for pins will be distributed near the East Entrance to World of Disney® Store (next to La Brea Bakery) one hour prior to park opening until one hour past the opening of Disneyland® park. Wristbands will then be available at the location until 12 Noon or while supplies last. In addition, holding a place in line for others in your party will not be allowed. Guests who wish to obtain a wristband to purchase a pin must be present when the line forms or they will be escorted to the back of the line.
    Wristbands will be valid for the purchase of the pins at the designated merchandise location until 1:00 P.M. on the day of distribution. Wristbands are limited. At 1:00 P.M. any remaining pins will be available for purchase at the designated merchandise location by persons who have not previously purchased the pin(s) on the day of release. Lost, stolen or damaged wristbands will not be replaced. Wristbands have no cash value. Restrictions apply. Subject to change without notice.


    I suggest you get in line and get the pin. It has been from my experience in the past that these pins do sell out and they are hard to find.

    Well, if everyone in line buys two then only 250 will get the pin. I don't see this pin selling out first day. But be sure to get it! Sunday is Pin Trading Night at the Paradise Pier Hotel and this will bring many more pin traders out to the park. I am guessing it will sell out early Sunday. Jessica Rabbit will sell out Saturday. I am not crazy for these pins but the more I hear about it the more I feel it may just sell out on Saturday. Atleast there aren't any Hitchhiking ghosts for this PIn trading night! We had over 1500 people lined up to buy the last PTN pin and only 250 got the LE 500 since it was 2 per person, and it was a mad house! This shouldn't be anything like that!

    It's kind of hit and miss. In days gone by, pins like this sold out within the first couple of hours with long lines of people waiting. In recent years, it's not uncommon for pins to still be available a week or even more afterward, with a few exceptions. It's really a matter of how badly you want the pin. If you really want it and can go that day, any time that day, then do it. Otherwise, go when you can and hope for the best.

    Oh, and this kind of pin will *not* be showing up on CM lanyards.

    With it being a LE500, it won't be on a CM lanyard anytime in the near future.
    If you see a cute yellow lab puppy with a yellow cape, WAVE! It might be us! (Or it may be someone else that lurks here!) Thank you for asking before you pet! Next trip, Dec 22-Jan 3rd.

    You'll probably be able to get it on E-bay the day they're released...

    Waaa noooo In truth, I'm not really sure if it is canon, but that's what I've seen her being called sometimes(even the official disney pin site calls her that). I've even seen her called "Blossom" as well. So I'm really not sure

    Re: A question for pin collectors

    I'm probably just going to get there early in the morning and line up for it. My mom is a giant Thumper fan, and between me and my three siblings, we've purchased pretty much every piece of Thumper merchandise in existence for her. Of course she's got to get this one.

    There's another romantically themed pin that won the CM design-a-pin contest, but I don't remember what it looks like, and I'm too lazy to check the portal.

    I doubt it will be on a CM lanyard at all, like they said. And like cstephens said it is hit and miss and just depends. I have seen pins at these events sold out within hours and people actually REALLY upset they didnt' get one. Then again, I've seen pins last for a couple of weeks after their release BUT those pins were not LE 500's.

    Like I said, get in line and get the wristband early.

    Re: A question for pin collectors

    Since we are on the subject of pins --I found a passholder pin with Belle on it that was supposed to have been released in a limited edition of 500, last Friday -- I'm thinking that a) they completely sold out, b) it still hasn't been released yet. I was there on Friday afternoon/evening and didn't see it anywhere...anyone have any info? Or am I just out of luck?

    If you guys have MC Gold there is a great Pin Traders club you could join. All questions answered in there.

    But to answer this one, you have to present your AP at one of these locations:

    Little Green Men Store Command
    Disney’s Pin Traders
    P.T. Flea Market.

    Did you try that? If you tried all these stores and they didn't have any, then they are all gone and these AP pins are HARD to come by for trading.

    It's a great pin though:



    Edition Size: 1000
    SKU: 11829063
    Retail: $12.95

    Re: A question for pin collectors

    Thanks for the info. I haven't done pin trading in a while, but when I saw this one I had to have it. They used to post the new releases, sunday pins, ap pins, and credit card pins in a separate case to let you know they were available -- I didn't see this anywhere. I will try, try again ...hopefully it's not too late -- I don't know if I am brave enough to show up on a holiday weekend.

    Re: A question for pin collectors

    The 2 best sites for pin info are www.odpt.com (disney info) and www.dizpins.com (not disney run so more info) as far as the pins this Saturday they really are hit or miss. I have seen some of the CM create a pins sell out right away and I have seen some sit on the racks for a week or so. If you want it just get there early or plan on spending more money on eBay.
