    What one do you think is the nicest... Not the most sought after but the one that looks like more than 5 mins went in to it's design?

    For me it is Pluto's 70th Anniversery Dangle. How about you?

    My favorite has to be the WDW Mystery EPCOT "BANNER" pin. I loved the real banners when they were on display at EPCOT and love the pin just as much.

    Another vote for the banner pin. Don't think I'll ever end up with one, though.:(

    The banner pin here too...I was actually fortunate enough to trade for it with another DISer before I knew it was a "mystery pin". I just liked the pin because I loved the Millennium Celebration at Epcot so much!

    A mystery/surprise pin is a pin that is released with no warning... It is almost always a LE 1000 but in some cases it has been 500 and 1500. They can be released anytime and any place. A good bet is they will be around a Holiday or special event.

    Since it's cute and there aren't many pins of it, I like the Flubber one. That is my answer :)

    My favorite is the Banner pin, I just love the look of it. It was my holy grail for a long time, and I was thrilled when I finally got it!

    I love the banner pin, but wouldn't consider it an original design, since it was based on real banners. For an original pin, I love the inauguration day pin.

    They are just released. No "Offical" warning is given. Some times there are clues. Like a lot of traders heading for a certain area of the park... In a dead run.

    At our house, Ballerina Figment is the Grail. My DD is a ballerina, pointe shoes and all, and she loves Figment. Just wish we could get one! Diana
