What Disney/Muppet Pins Do You Have...?

    I hadn't seen a thread like this one, so I thought I'd ask everyone what Disney pins they happen to have!

    I was really excited this afternoon, as I completed my Fozzie Solo set of Disney pins! I got two of the more sought-after pins on eBay for pretty cheap, but was really excited about it! So, my set will cease to be rounded-off after the Star Wars Series is released, but I'll have my eye out for the Fozzwaca one! :o

    Dancing, Full-Body Fozzie
    Head & Name Fozzie
    Head-in-a-Circle Fozzie
    Full-Body, Banana Fozzie
    Muppet Show Fozzie
    Mickey Ears Fozzie

    I have one Muppet related one (as well as one of Scamp from Lady and the Tramp 2 and two of Little Mermaid) which is guitar shaped with Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie, and Animal.

    Darn right they are! ;)
    Whoa! I'm digging the Chef pin (totally jealous), and that rotating one is really innovative...! I didn't know that one existed! :D

    My wife and I collect pins (thats her hobby), so I guess that gives me an unfair advantage. It would actually be easier to list what I don't have, as I have 96 different ones right now.

    More new muppets pins have been announced:

    To chime in... My collection's a meager 20 strong, but I've gotten stuff I wanted, so that's the important thing.

    Jessica Rabbit Halloween with bats, my DisPins Holy Grail.
    Witch Minnie with Figaro flying over Spaceship Earth.
    Mickey as Jack Skellington.
    Jack, Jessica, Ariel, and Maleficent Jeweled Pins (though Maleficent's just a headshot).
    Jack Skellington Passport Book with Halloween Town crest on the outside cover.
    Haunted Mansion 13 O'Clock Pocket Watch from 2009 O'Pin House.
    2 CJDPT fan-made pins, one in the shape of New Jersey, one from their October event, Trade Till You Fade.
    Kermit The Frog Earglobe.
    Kermit The Frog character coin, my new lucky charm.
    Kermit The Frog 2009 St. Patrick's Day, or as I call it, the Frog in the Glen pin cause it's got Kerm all dressed up and playing the bagpipes.

    Would heartily recommend people here check www.pinpics.com where you can search for all Muppet pins past and present, among others. Also recommend you come on over and check out the Disney Pincast at www.disneypincast.com, browse through the Facebook group, or maybe even join the International Pincast Listeners Society by answering a few questions.

    BTW: Ima thinking of getting the Muppet Star Wars and/or maybe going to Trade City in late August, haven't decided yet.

    EGAD! I love them! Must get my hands on at least the Fozzie, but that design really intrigues me...it would be neat if they could expand the Vinylmation line into other kinds of products. Such a clever design.
  14. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Actually, they have. There's Vinylmation clothing, backpacks, stationary/notebooks, the stickers and gems and pencils for the Create-Your-Own figures, the mystery pin sets... Merchandising! It's all about merchandising.

    Ebay tends to be a little expensive for pins I have noticed. I try to trade for them, but what I do buy I now get off of this message board for disney pins:

    http://dizpinsboards.yuku.com/forums/10/t/Dizpins-Sale-Board.html


    I just do a search for kermit or muppets.

    The nice thing about muppet pins is that when they come out as limited edition, they are usually available for a little while. While the muppet pin collectors I have met are really enthusiastic, there are not a lot of us.

    There is a "holy grail" for muppet pins. It is "A Piece of History" muppet 3d pin that actually has a chip of plastic from the 3d glasses. They typically ebay from 50 - 80$ from what I have seen.

    Hi, I know very little about pins but I saw this auction here in Japan for a Kermit the frog 3 pin set. It doesn't say Disney on it so I imagine they aren't from Disney. Does anyone happen to know when they were released or more about them?

    Don't now anything about those Kermit pins personally, but they look AWESOME! :D

    I've got a few Disney pins, I'll add a picture pretty soon. We're going to Disneyland for my Son's second birthday in December, so my collection is sure to grow!

    Shamata, if you can, try searching www.pinpics.com for those Kermit pins. Click on the checkbox for Tokyo Disney and then enter a short title-like description of what you're trying to find.

    Anthony, I'm recommending you listen to the Disney Pincast found at www.disneypincast.com to stay updated on the latest in news and releases for when you do end up going to DLR.
    And hey, drop by the Haunted Holidays overlay/crossover/takeover of the Haunted Mansion by the Nightmare Before Christmas, I hear that's an exclusive DLR holiday thrill.

    As for me, the latest Muppet pin I bought was the Animal Pirate Coin from disneystore.com
    :halo: :flirt: :cool:

    Thanks Count, I enjoyed looking at the site. I didn't see the pin set there but it was still fun to see what was available!

    Hey Ed, thanks! And yeah, the Haunted Mansion is always extra fun during the holidays, we've seen it like that the last 2 times we went around this time of year, once in October, and the second time was right before Thanksgiving. Really can't wait for the snow on Main Street, even though we get TONS of snow where I live, and I'm sick of it! Lol.

    Here's some pics of my Disney Pins, only 7 of which are Muppets :sympathy: :

    Pins 1 - 42
    Pins 43 - 83
    Pins 84 - 109

    I don't have them separated in any way, they're just lined up left-to-right in the order in which I purchased/received them. Mostly park pins that I bought myself, but there's also several eBay wins, as well as pins from Disney Travel Co./AAA Travel/Get Away Today, and Disney Movie Club & Store exclusives. I'm quite proud of my little collection, I've gotten a lot of hard-to-find pins over the years, plus, they're all just really special to me, I LOVE Disney Pins!

    I plan on at least filling up the third corkboard from our upcoming trip this December, and then it'll be time to black-velvet it up! Hopefully a big chunk of my new additions will be MUPPETS! From some of the other collection pics in this thread, it looks like they've created many more Muppet pins since our last visit. Oh man, can't wait! :excited:

    As always, Cheers!
    :)
