A few weeks back (on April 21st to be exact), this very cool Disney·Pixar Finding Nemo "Character Connection" Mystery Pin Collection was released at the Disney Parks! I'm not usually into the Disney Pin craze (not that I don't like them, quite the opposite- I like them so much that if I get into it too much, I'll want them all!), but since I was there at Walt Disney World during the day of release, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to grab some of these. I'm never usually at the parks when anything new or limited comes out, so this was a fun treat for me!
This is a set of 12 beautifully designed interconnecting puzzle shaped pins. There are 10 common characters (limited edition of 900 each) and two chaser characters (limited to 600 each). Retail for each pin is $12.99.
Looking at the back of the package above, the 10 common characters in this collection are (from left two right, top row then bottom row): Anchor, Nemo, Marlin, Squirt, Tad, Pearl, Dory, Crush, Sheldon and Bruce. The two chaser characters are Mr. Ray and Chum.
And these are the six I got so far! I was able to snag them at the Epcot "Pin Central" location while I was there (it's the only place I ever saw them, but I'm sure they're available elsewhere). I also have two more on the way in the mail (since I got two Mr. Ray chasers, I was able to trade that one for two others I didn't have. More on those soon).
Lets take a closer look-
Mr. Ray (Chaser)
UPDATE 5/07/16- I Just officially added Peal and Nemo to the collection! Like with the rest of the set, these are really great pins with fantastic designs.
UPDATE 6/16/16- Today I was able to trade my extra Tad for Sheldon! Now I'm that much closer to completing this set. Nine down, three to go.
I'll be updating this page as my collection grows. Hopefully I'll be able to complete the puzzle sooner than later! Stay tuned.
