I got the Hollywood Pictures Backlot Piece of History yesterday
Bought this on monday.
I'm fairly new to the entire disney pin craze, and I love looking through the various pics, seeing how happy getting those rare ones make everyone. I could never afford getting all the pins I like so I concentrate on my favorite character, Chernabog. I surf the Disny Store site and grab new ones every time they pop up. The last 2 times I've been to WDW, I was able to find 1 pin of him at the very most, always on Main Street in MK. Any tips for hunting down this elusive character in park or online?
Welcome to MiceChat fireowl98.
Once in a while you can find stuff on eBay, but you have to be real careful there about getting scrapper pins. I'm sure some of the other more serious collectors will have some info for you.
I don't do a lot of pin collecting, I was trying to get away from it... but I did get three new ones when I was in the park last weekend.
These are the ones I picked up...

And I got this one... even though I didn't have my current D23 membership card with me... they let me buy it anyway... :D

I love the D23 Halloween pin. I'm a Halloween nut! ANd I still love pins even though I really only collect, I never remember to bring pins to trade or buy some I'm willing to let go :)
THe last few times I was at the park, I didn't see much that really grabbed me in the pins. I really wanted that AP WOC pin but at that time they were out.
That dolphin/submarine pin is just fabulous!
Ms. Penguinsoda, whatever happened to "no more pins"???
I like the D23 Halloween one but at that price before discount, maybe not...
I did not however, get a vinylmation like we talked about. I DID resist that! :p
Thank you for protecting me from the mommy stick, NNL! And since I didn't hotlink or veer off topic and you have no idea what I'm talking about, just carry on, carry on. :D
I really like the Halloween pin, Penguinsoda. My wife and I have already agreed that next time we go down to WDW, it'll be this time of year. Her favorite holiday is Halloween and I love the villians. A couple people I work with are going down shortly so I'm gently suggesting they look for Chernabog pins and I'll pay them back ;).
I got these pins from Knott's Berry Farm last week
I just got back from Disneyland last week. I love collecting pins, but only buy them when I am at the park. I know there are ways to purchase them outside of that, but could use some advice on where would be the best places to get them and if there are any Disney sponsored groups/clubs that one can belong to. Any help would be appreciated.
Anyways here are my new pickups:
As soon as I saw this Pixar one I had to pick it up. The very knowledgeable CM told me that she had sold 3 or 4 in the last hour. I love it.
I just stumbled across this one at the pin shop in NOS. It opens to revel the tickets. Pretty Cool
This is just funny and cool. 'Nuff said!
I had been looking for just a Genie pin. I know they are our there and when I found this one I had to pick it up.
While I was there the CM told me that when your pin purchase is over $30 or more, you can buy a mystery pin for $1. So since I spent waaaayyyy over $30 (please don't tell my wife) I went ahead and paid my dollar and I was not disappointed.
Finally, I picked up this pin a year ago, but have not shared it. I absolutely love Smee from Peter Pan. He is my favorite disney character, but there is hardly any merchandise with him on it. I had resigned myself to never finding a pin with him on it until I saw this. Sadly, I would've mortgaged my house to pay for it, but it wasn't that expensive. Here is the outside of the pin
But then it opens up to THIS!!!!
That first pin is really huge!
