AVENGERS set is scheduled to coincide with the new Avengers 2 Movie coming out this May.  The characters are all repeats with Hulk and perhaps one other character with a new look.

The collection has only added 3 characters so far this year!!!
P.S.  Not known if there are any new Halloween characters this year.
ANGRY BIRDS - New Series

2013 was not a particularly bumper year in PEZ acquisitions.  It was not for not trying.  The west coast seemed to not provide a plethora of the new issues for 2013.  Look back through the PEZ Watch posts of 2013.  There are a lot not collected as they don't seem to be in this part of the country.  Since we have collectors in all time zones in the US, collectors in other regions should look for the missing 2013 issues.



New Disney Princess MERIDA and updated CINDERELLA

New MONSTERS UNIVERSITY - note the special edition SULLY which was only available from Best Buy just before Christmas, which was a lucky find.


New PULL-N-GO HOT WHEELS  - these actually came out in 2012 but were not obtained until this year.
MISSOURI FOOTBALL was found on Mom & Dad's visit to Missouri a few month ago.  The CUBS BASEBALL PEZ is a gift from a family friend who is a dedicated Cubs fan and Cubs items collector..

The TARGET DOG was a fun and totally unexpected find during Christmas shopping.  It is actually a gift card (for pets). To get the PEZ one needed to put at least $5 on the gift card.  Dad put $5 on the card then turned around and handed the card to mom (buying other Christmas gifts) in the checkout line behind him..  $5 was taken off the gift card and we had a "free" PEZ
We finally got the 2th PRESIDENTIAL SERIES (from 2012) and the also the 3rd PRESIDENTIAL SERIES.  (Keep a look out for 4 and 5, they have not made it to west coast Walmarts)
Cute HALLOWEEN PEZ for 2013
