December 1, 2014 – In addition to the Yoda Santa pin featured HERE, Disney has released two other exclusive pins just in time for the Holidays:
The Darth Vader pin is nearly all-black and heavier than your standard Disney pin. Over Vader’s visage is the phrase “Humbug!” – borrowing a catchphrase from Charles Dickens’ miserly and misanthropic Scrooge character (“Bah, humbug!”). Below Vader’s mask, in black letters against a silver ribbon, is the greeting “Merry Sithmas!” Vader is framed by two almost imperceptible clusters of holly berries above and below him. The pin retails for $9.95 at various Disney locations.
Equally festive and just as grouchy is the character pin of Chewbacca. His irritation is attributable to the tangle of Christmas lights our favorite Wookie finds himself in. The rendering of Chewbacca is recognizable, if a little off. The blue eyes and the large head vis-à-vis the body may give you pause. The pin should probably be stretched longer or proportioned better to reflect the Wookie’s tall body. Nevertheless, at $8.95, the pin still manages to convey the humor of his light-entangled predicament.
Both pins can be found at various Disney locations or online at the Disney store. An additional 10% discount is available to Disney Annual Passholders at certain locations (e.g., Tatooine Traders at Disney’s Hollywood Studios).
