    I would like to add sun.state.collectables on ebay to this list please. I ordered a set of 100 (yes I am new and inexperienced and now paying for it) and they were unfinished seconds and rejects from China. To date the seller has refused to take them back. The quality is so bad I can't imagine anyone being fooled that these are legit tradeable pins.

    Should we ask a moderator to close this thread so we don't have to keep up with two?

    pin_surplus and pinsurplus - very close, but not the same seller? I don't see pinsurplus listed on your list anywhere and they have some pins for sale on cards. All positive feedback so I'm tempted...... Anyone have experience w/ them?

    I bought from domimgood and I would not buy a lot from them again. I bought a lot of 50, I guess that was dumb on my part, and got a ton of scrappers. I'm pretty sure all of them were except like 2. So I emailed them asking if I could send them back for a refund and they said yes.

    But! They kept saying how all their pins are trade able because of the seal on the back and blah blah. But what really ticked me off is that they said "We don't sell scrappers." First off Disney doesn't want you trading scrappers because they were supposed to be thrown away in the first place. That doesn't make them trade able. I wouldn't want to do a trade and receive fakes/scrappers. So we emailed back saying no we still want our money back and they email back again saying stuff like, "trading scrappers is okay! they even featured on in the disney article" Which it was but it said nothing about the pin being a scrapper and it was some post about "You know you're a disney pin trader when..."

    So all I'm saying is don't buy from them. They're cheap, annoying and make up excuses to make you keep the pins. I've yet to send them back though so I hope I'll be getting my money back.

    I already commented on the "updated" thread from this, such a shame.

    A couple days ago I received an order I made online from the Disneystore US. I bought 4 new Big Little Book recreations which have a case that looks like the vintage Big Little Book and which opens to reveal a pin. Inside the Dumbo Big Little Book the Dumbo pin had blue paint spilled over the edge and a drop of blue paint on the back! Both of course are definitive signs of scrappers. I called Disney Guest Services. They were sorry and will replace my purchases after I return the defective ones (also included was another book case with a split seam) with free return postage. The scrapper-like quality of the pin was not addressed by the cast member. Also, my sister who lives in London and buys UK disneystore pins for me has received countless scratched or dimpled pins from them! She has returned all but no explanation is coming from guest services! One pin came with scratches and dimples 3 times and we finally gave up and decided not to get it! Many orders of multiple pins have come loose in a big box with no cellophane bags or packing material whatsoever! So, quality is definitely going down at Disney! It looks almost like Disney is now over-using the molds, factories are exercising very poor quality control and handling of pins before shipping is also very reckless. 9 out of 10 pins in the last shipment she ordered for me came visibly scratched. We returned them all.

    Does anyone recognize this collectible pen? I have had this Pen for years and love it.

    I'm trying to identify the manufacturer in order to have it repaired. PLEASE HELP!

    [​IMG]

    It has the "MICKEY" and "Disney"engraved at the top.

    Appears to be a representation of a spaceship. Thanks in advance for any info!

    I would LOVE to know why this particular seller found the need to block myself and some other friends from buying from them!?! We have 100% ratings and yet I can't even contact them through ebay as that is also blocked. VERY odd -- called Ebay and they don't understand it either.

    But after reading some of the reviews of the lots, maybe I should be glad I can't bid ;):rotfl:

    EDITED TO ADD: Seems that many of the sellers on the red list on this site are the ones blocking certain buyers. Another reason not to trust them!

    Don't know who to trust on Ebay anymore. I will keep the ones that I know are scrappers that I like. I will throw the rest in the trash-- All 70 pins. I wish Disney would do something about it.

    Some of the sellers troll through posts and cross reference to feedback and figure out usernames and then start blocking. 1) they have too much time on their hands 2) if they are that shady be glad you are blocked. 3) they could do much worse than block you... Internet stalking is crazy and the sickos doing it have real issues

    Does anyone have any information on real.cool.stuff? They say they have been pin traders for 10 years and don't knowingly sell scrappers.
