Finding Dory PEZ, featuring Dory, Bailey and Nemo, are now available! I honestly didn't even know these were out yet, so I was excited when I stumbled upon them at CVS Pharmacy last night.
The initial store I found these at had them stocked in the seasonal section (as seen below)...
But I also saw them near the registers at a different CVS later, so it depends which store you go to. Just have a good look around there if you're trying to track these down.
Lets take a good look at these out of the package-
From what I've read, these are actually the very first PEZ to have translucent stems! I thought that was a pretty neat touch.
Beyond the new stems however, both the Nemo and Dory PEZ are essentially straight repacks with subtle new paint jobs. I've included some comparison pics below, with the new 2016 versions on the left and the original 2006 versions on the right.
Soon you'll also be able to get get all three of these in a fish bowl gift pack as well (seen HERE). However, the stems on all three of those ones are blue; so they are technically different from these single pack releases. If you're a completest collector of all variants, you might just need them all!
Unfortunately for us here in the U.S., the Hank PEZ (seen HERE) is a European exclusive. I was so looking forward to that one the most too! eBay here I come...
The Hank PEZ had officially been added to my collection! And yes, I had to resort to an eBay seller in the UK (check out the listing HERE), but it wasn't all that bad. It came pretty quick and for both the PEZ and the shipping, I only paid $7.58...and it was worth it! I mean, look at this character; easily one of my favorite Pixar PEZ designs of all time.
Note- It was cool to see the European packaging too (shorter card, rounded bubble) since I didn't know it varied from the US look.
