  • Finding LE pins?

    Is there a certain store in DL that has the most leftover LE pins?
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Not really. Pins don't usually end up getting transfered or liquidated, since even the open edition pins have a finite quality they are usually just left to be sold out.
    Only thing I can suggest would be to just pin trade in DCA. Enough of the Pin Traders eskew that park, for there to be on average I find, better pickings.
    Any LEs in particular you looking for?

      No... Well, maybe on Sunday, the Rescuers 30th anniv. pin, for a friend.

      I was just wondering in general, since it seems most are released on Fri or Sat and I don't get to the parks 'til Sunday!

        Not necessarily, I know at the very least almost every Sunday the Emporium has a pin release. they get snatched fairly quickly, so you need to hit it within the first hour or two of park opening depending on the pin.

        The Rescuers 30th anniv is available at: Plaza Pavillion Pin Carts, Little Green Men Store Command, Silver Spur, World of Disney, Disney's Pin Traders, and also at P.T Fleas. It is an open edition pin set, and should be easy to find. Hope this helps.

          Interesting, 'cuz I thought it was a LE 1000. That's good to know. I can duck into PT then. Thanks for all the info! :bow:

            The rescuers pin will most definetly not sell out any time soon, trust me. Even if it were LE 500 I would be surprised for it to sell out within the first month. It is not of "fan favorite" status and the edition size is waaay to high.
            But if you are looking for certain pins that may be older LE's and may not have completely sold out when released your best bets on finding them would be in NOS, the pin cart at Paradise Pier(not PT), and also WOD and Critter Country. On rare occasions I will find some good LE's sitting on the rack. Infact last summer I found some pins in Critter Country that had been sold out for weeks. If a pin sells out quickly in one location chances are(unless they find an unopened box) they won't be released anywhere except the original location. But if unopened boxes are found then they are always transferred to a not-so-prominent pin store.

            This pin is an LE 1000 and has already been released! The release was changed to May 27.
