That's a neat idea to have them displayed on a cork-board. My kids got some one year but we left them displayed on their lanyard kind-of hung up in their room but I like this idea and it would make me have to purchase more :D

I got a pack of 4 of those cork boards that are in my pictures at Wal-Mart for I think about 5 bucks, it is a really good deal and as you can see if you don't have the backings you can fit quite a bit on there.

I have a lot of mine on a corkboard. It's a nice way to display them.

Of course if you guys have any questions about any of them, or want to see one specifically, just ask. :)



Just an FYI, the rarest pin is in the 4th picture, second row, 4th from the left, the one with Figment looking like he is hitchhiking and it says Trade City or Bust. It was a Limited Edition of only 100.

Use the 3M Command picture hanging things. They're awesome.

I think that I counted about 95 Figment pins.. I didn't count the one board with pins other than Figment, those were either given to me or have some sort of special meaning to me. :)

Much better pictures ~ thanks figmentaholic! Very cute collection :D
Do you want to share the story of the Trade City or Bust pin? An edition of only 100 isn't very many :shock:
I'm curious how long it took you to collect this many too. I know I bought just a few pins and my Mom, F1gment also bought a few this past trip. There are several I like, but they add up quickly being $8+ per pin. And I don't really collect pins so I can't justify buying too many ~ unlike my Disney jewelry ;)

To be honest, many of them were gotten from places like Ebay and such, and of course quite a few of the slightly newer ones were traded for at the parks. I try not to pay more than 5 dollars or so per pin when it comes to places like Ebay, of course I have gotten quite a few at the parks as well. I was disappointed when there was not a SINGLE new pin at Imagination this February that I didn't have. I think that was the first time in all my travels that happened.

I guess I have been collecting on and off since I was living in Florida. So I would guess for about 10 years? But I have really been going at it more hard core for the last 4 or 5 years, ironically since I have moved away from Orlando. We had those three hurricanes in a year and that was just too much for me.

Interesting. We were disappointed in the Figment merchandise that was available in the gift shop at the end of the attraction on our last two trips. There wasn't much selection, and what they had was sort of uninspired and lacking in imagination :(

I like that Amy "lacking in imagination". Do you guys know if these work with crocs? I might try the corkboard idea as an idea to hang up. Any reason to get Disney on my walls.

Gotta love eBay! I got a necklace before I left Disney and found it later on eBay for like a third of the price I paid ugh, but I will just say I paid extra for the memories.
