There are lots of new pez that have just arrived and more that are on their way to us right now! Awesome new pez releases are always so much fun! We are having a great time right now in our PEZ stocked booth at Planet Comicon, meeting and welcoming lots of new collectors! This is an exciting month for pez collectors because we will get to see sneak previews of the 2018 lineup at the Sweets and Snacks Expo and we will bring you all the new release information.
If you happen to be in the Kansas City area at Planet Comicon, come by and visit the Pez Collectors Store in booth 3116, near Celebrity Row!
Globi, the world traveling Parrot from Switzerland has made his way to us and he is awesome. The graphics on the card show Globi and his friends. We love the unique promotional and exclusive pez and it is really cool when they are packaged on unique cards as well! Globi is in stock now, either loose or mint on card!
Star Wars pez BB-8 and Rey have arrived and they look good! This pair made an impact in the Force Awakens, and their story will continue The Last Jedi. Great new additions for Star Wars fans and pez collectors!
Our cases of Star Wars Pez also included the Red Dot version of R2-D2. The R2D2 with a red dot in the center of the grey dome and a silver hinge on the top of the shoulder first appeared in the 2015 Crystal Star Wars limited edition set in the Darth Vader Tin. The original R2D2 has no red paint and a grey color in the spot on the center front of the dome and it has a black hinge at the top of the shoulder. This is a great variation for a Star Wars pez that has been the same for a long time! We also have lots of the Darth Vader version B with the rounded helmet and small dots on the lower sides of the triangular breather.
We have just learned that there will be new twin packs featuring Episode VIII graphics with BB-8 and Rey and a second with Chewbacca and “Beaks”. Sorry folks, no spoilers here – we will all just have to wait and see. These twin pack boxed sets are scheduled to begin shipping September 1. The Millennium Falcon Pez Gift Sets with BB-8, Rey, Chewbacca and and exclusive Han Solo dispenser will also be released September 1!

The Crystal Devilish pez has arrived to join the Pez Emojis set. It looks even better in crystal than it did in the fortuitous error opaque version!
John LaSpina has released the 28th Edition of the Original Collector's Price Guide to PEZ. This 2017 edition of the price guide has been updated to reflect the new dispensers released and updated pricing of various dispensers. The book has check boxes to keep track of your collection and it is now more than 220 pages! Imagine what it might be if it were to include pictures of all the different dispensers!
