This past month has brought many new releases to the Pez Collectors Store and there are more coming from both PEZ Candy Inc. and Funko POP!+PEZ. Convention season in the USA is coming to an end, but there are still a few opportunities go get together with other Pez collectors and share your love for this great hobby!
Mickey and Minnie 90 Years of Magic Pez Twin packs are available now and they look even better in person than in the photos. The Mickey and Minnie heads are made with brown plastic rather than black and the eyes and nose are also brown. The stems are sort of a Dusty Rose color and Dark Dusty Rose color rather than the normal red and pink. The large polka-dots on Minnie’s bow and stem are much larger than previous versions and Mickey has 90 Years printed on his stem. This great set is available in the twin pack or loose for those who prefer to display loose and save on shipping!
Stranger Things Pez Twin packs arrived and these 4 characters from the popular Netflix Sci-fi/Horror series look wonderful. Eleven and Mike are in one Stranger Things Twin Pack and Lucas and Dustin are in the second Twin Pack. Each character has its name printed on the stem. I am not really sure why that is necessary, but it is what it is. Regardless, these are great new pez dispensers! We have them available in the twin packs or loose so you can save on shipping!
The Grinch Pez Gift Tins arrived and they are awesome! The Grinch, Cindy Lou Who, Max the Dog and Fred the Reindeer are included in the set of 4 in the Gift Tin. The tin is shaped like Grinch’s head and the back of the tin features the Grinch. The gift tin comes with a 6 pack of Sours Green Apple Candy. For those who collect Candy Packs, it should be noted that the new flavor is called Sours instead of Sourz. I really am not sure why the change in name, but it’s more variation! As far as I can tell, the flavor is the same! These are also available either in the Gift Tin or loose!
We realize it seems early, but next month we expect to receive our orders of Valentine’s Pez for 2019. Included in the assortment should be a new Red Crystal Happy Heart and Pink Crystal Silly Heart. The new Valentine’s Hearts are on standard footed stems facing forward! The White Love Bear with red stem should also be included along with a new Ladybug with a pink face on a pink stem. The mold for this Ladybug seems to be the same as was used for the Bugz Ladybug pez dispenser, but her eyes have eyelashes on the sides and are differently shaped. With the pink face and pink stem, she seems to fit right in for Valentine’s Day! As an added bonus, all Valentine’s Pez will come with Cotton Candy flavor Pez candies!
There will also be a Valentine’s Day Twin pack with the crystal Happy Heart and Silly Heart dispensers. These will come in a Happy Valentine’s Day box with a heart shaped window and 6 rolls of Cotton Candy flavor Pez candies.
Funko POP!+PEZ have been steadily coming into the Pez Collectors Store and it is a good thing we just added a new warehouse to accommodate our inventory of these great new pez with Pop! head designs. We now have Marvel Cable, Loki, Magneto, Star Lord, Thor, Yondu, Deadpool, Hulk, Stan Lee, DC Comics Batman, Robin, and Joker, Quaker Oats Crunchberry Beast and Jean La Foote, Bob Ross in stock!
We have also received our shipment of Star Wars Bossk which is a shared exclusive with New York Comic Con that begins October 4. Due to this, Bossk cannot be sold until October 4. It shows as "Sold Out" on our website, but really just won't be available for sales until October 4!
