New, Rare Darkwing Pins March 10, 2011Posted by John D. Moore in Merchandise.
Disney may not have started mass-producing new Darkwing Duck merchandise, but in addition to the coming Darkwing Vinylmation figures, the Walt Disney Company has released at least two limited edition pins for employees and Imagineers. If you’re lucky, you might win one on eBay.
The first is a limited edition of 300 exclusively for people employed by Walt Disney Imagineering. It features Darkwing and Launchpad riding in the Ratcatcher, submerged in a lake outside Sleeping Beauty Castle, scaring off… ducks.
According to one of the people currently auctioning it off on eBay:
This is a 2011 Walt Disney Imagineering Cast Exclusive LE 300 Pin on Pin. This pin is from a series of four pins. This one features Darkwing Duck crashing the red and purple Motorcycle Ratcatcher into the pound in front of Cinderella’s Castle. Launchpad McQuack, his trusty sidekick, is in the side car which is the pin on pin element. Back of pin reads Walt Disney Imagineering Imagineer Exclusive Limited Edition 300 Disney China.
One seller is selling one edition of this pin in an auction that ends March 15 here. Another is currently selling 2 for the buy-it-now price of $24.99 each here. Since these are super rare, if you want one, I’d jump on board right away. They will only sell for more as time goes on.
Another relatively new pin (I’m not sure from when exactly) is another limited edition of 300 for Disney cast members, featuring Darkwing and Launchpad.
It is currently available for auction here, and will end on Saturday, March 12th. It’s a part of a series of four Disney Afternoon pins, the other three featuring Gummi Bears, TaleSpin, and Chip ‘n’ Dale: Rescue Rangers.
