    "Oh my gawd, it's the holy grail of pin trading!"

    Sorry for the title, but if you've heard the story, you know what I'm talking about. I just recently took a photo of my Maleficent/Dragon pin, and I thought I'd share it for those who've heard the funny story but hadn't seen the pin in question:

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    Meh.

    It's nice, but I mean, why the fuss? Certainly not worth the money involved in the story I heard.

    Its a beautiful pin. I only started collecting some pins and I'm very picky on the ones I get. Even though I'm not a huge Maleficent fan, I would think hard about getting thes one.

    ddd: not when you hear what it's going for... try doing a search on ebay. It's ridiculous.

    Love the title of the thread.

    Love the pin.

    Maybe we can start a fund for Villains Fan so she can bid on that ....with the stipulation that she'll have to wear it whenever she's planning to see one of us of course.

    Anyone know how much that thing weighs? She'll probably get a crick in her neck if she wears it on her lanyard!!

    If someone really wants it they will pay the price for it. Supply and Demand. I've paid probably about 3x as much for a pin (yes I really really wanted it) than it was worth.

    If I was a huge Maleficent fan, I would seriously think about it. But for me, since I'm not I will pass

    Just found it on Ebay with 3 bids....high is now at $301.00! Ouch! I've paid as much as $110.00, but I think that was the one and only time I'd do that! But I HAD to have it......

    Well, for myself, mine's not for sale. But at the same time, I can't imagine shelling out as much money as people do for it. I think I hang on to mine as much to thwart the folks who'd go nuts over it as I do for my own enjoyment in owning it (yeah, I know I'm a snark, LOL).

    By the way, the quote in the title comes from Chernabog's one and only attempt to carry on a conversation about pins with a pin trader Now every time I see that pin, I'm reminded of his hilarious impression of this lady reacting to him saying he had the pin.

    Wow Morrigoon, that is a really nice Pin. I found quite few pins this week and that one you have is fantastic. Congratulations!

    ...I love my villains, but not quite that much! Now if it were a pin of the Evil Queen, that might be another story and I might start my own fundraiser for that ...But I do have to say, it's a gorgeous pin Morigoon and if you're ever going out of town and you need somebody to pin sit for you, I'm your person
