It was about time to finish painting the original board. I think both sides turned out really well! And now I have more room for my new pins! Yesterday at Epcot I traded for the Halloween Minnie and the Beauty and the Beast pins. I happened to buy that Doorway pin at Springs while my friends were visiting! All in all, a great mini vacation!
Happy late Wreck-it Ralph anniversary everyone! Welcome to night nine of this year’s Wreck-it Ralph Pin Post Month!
Tonight’s pin is the limited edition, surprise release, DSSH, Wreck-it Ralph 5th Anniversary Pin (SURPRISE), LE 200 pin.
Tonight’s pin was only released five days ago, and it arrived in my mailbox last night! It was a complete surprise to see this pin online as there hadn’t been any announcement of buildup at all to this pin. It just suddenly appeared as a surprise release last Sunday, sold at the Disney Studio Store in Hollywood until they were gone. I really didn’t see this pin coming since Disney had already released two other anniversary pins, (exclusively to their staff,) which is really the fun behind surprise releases. I guess I should’ve see it coming, but still it had been a lot more exciting since I hadn’t.
Back to the pin though, this is actually the first pin to feature a game cabinet as well as the third pin to have Vanellope, Ralph, and Felix shown together. I guess it’s still too much to finally have a pin with Calhoun standing with them, since she’s just as important as a character as them. I’ve still got my fingers crossed for a pin like that in the future. For now I love how this pin looks, how well done and detailed each of the characters are despite the limited size of the pin, and how the number five for fifth anniversary is in a metal since metals were an important element from the movie. It’s like an extra wink towards the fans that enjoy little details like that, kinda like me.
Happy WIR anniversary again everyone! Welcome to night twenty of this year’s Wreck-it Ralph Pin Post Month!
Tonight’s pin is the limited edition, WDI, Wreck-it Ralph 5th Anniversary Pin, LE 250 pin.
Out of the three pins released this month in celebration of Wreck-it Ralph’s fifth anniversary since the films release, this by far has to be the most adorable of the three. A pin of a cake with a design similar to the cake Mary baked in the movie, to celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of Fix-it Felix Junior being plugged in Litwak’s Family Fun Center. If there was a way to make a perfect anniversary pin for this movie, this for certain is one of those ways as it is delightful to see such an important event in the plot of the movie reused to celebrate the movie’s release.
Not only that, it’s good to see a modeling chocolate or fondue figure of Ralph posed in front of the apartment building, smiling happily while looking like he belongs there instead of pushing off to the side like he had been in the first cake Mary made in the film. It really makes a fun and heart warming pin when you really begin to think about the difference between this cake and the one from the beginning of the movie. It sort of makes me happy about where Ralph ended up at the end of the movie all over again.
