August 2019 PCS Newsletter

It has been a busy month in the Pez Collectors Store with new pez and Funko POP!  PEZ arriving as well as attending the Pez Conventions! That won’t stop this month – new arrivals are expected and we will be attending two conventions in Europe!

Halloween Mini Pez Party Favor packs arrived and each bag has 12 individually wrapped mini pez dispensers. There are 6 different designs and each bag contains two full sets. There are no Frankenstein party favors (at least not this year), instead it is an Owl wearing a hat. These make a fun Halloween treat or are great for displaying in full bag, in individual packages or loose – or all of the above!

The Halloween Bat also arrived. It is grey with purple inside the ears and wings and orange around the black pupils. The style is showing a big rounded belly with little feet sticking out as though it is sitting on its rump (similar to the style for this year’s Easter Bunny and Easter Chick). These come mint in bag with pez candies.

We now have full sets of the 2019 Lion King pez in stock. The assortments were not evenly distributed so our initial orders left us with very few complete sets. The new Lion King are all on different colored stems than the original Lion King release.

The European Silver Bird has arrived to join the others in the European Angry Birds assortment. Silver comes loose and ready to display! The 2016 European Angry Birds Pez set is also available!

We are looking forward to the new Wonder Woman Pez and revised Batman and revised Superman in the 2019 Justice League Assortment. These are supposed to begin shipping August 1 and we hope to have them in stock soon!

LOL Surprise are also scheduled to begin shipping August 1. These will be Mystery pez, since you won’t be able to see through the bag to know what you are getting until you open the package. There are 3 different dolls each with 3 different variations – popular, fancy and ultra rare. Collecting them all may prove to be a challenge!

At the Cleveland Pez Convention, the PEZHead of the Year was announced. The recipients of this year’s award are the hosts of the Pez on The River Convention, held October 10 – 12, 2019 in Winona, MN. They are long time collectors who go above and beyond in supporting the hobby, encouraging new collectors and sharing information and the love of Pez. They would not only give you the shirt off their backs, but their pants, too if you needed them! It is a pleasure to welcome Sandy and Cheryl Ghionzoli-Gardner as the 2019 PEZ Heads of the Year! We hope to see you at the POTR convention and be sure to congratulate the reigning PHOTY recipients!
