Northeast PEZ Collectors Gathering #NEPEZCON
- Guide to our collectible PEZ Convention dispensers/Pins -

We had Convention logo pins, special dispenser packages and candy packs as giveaways starting with our first convention in 1999. The first really special "Convention dispenser" came in 2002, the "Glowing Witch" on top left. This dispenser was supposed to be a production sample of the new Witch that was sent to PEZ. But, it was made in the wrong colors. It came with a Glowing Head and Stem. Someone at PEZ had asked me if I thought collectors would like them and the rest is history. Next to the Witch, is the 2003 Snowman. It has a Blue Crystal Head with Glowing Hat on pink stem. In 2004, we had a yellow Crystal Bee in odd colors with "Convention 2004" printed on the stem. Then in 2005, we had the Blue Crystal Chick with "2005 Convention Dispenser" printed on the stem.

Above: In 2006 we had Crystal Bugz for convention dispensers. For Northeast they came with stem printing "8th Annual Northeast PEZ Gathering 2006" and Myrtle Beach had "PEZ in the Sun Myrtle Beach SC". But I also found some Nascar helmets printed "Myrtle Beach 2006". Im pretty sure the helmets were given as convention dispensers due to our logo that year. Then on the right is "2007 Convention Dispenser" Bugz. They were available in several different heads in either crystal or regular. These are two that I have, there could be more variations. for 2008 we had "Moog the Bear". His stem prints are "PEZ Northeast 2008 Convention" and "PEZ in the Sun 2008 Convention". For 2009, we had Pantalaimon with the stem print "PEZ 2009 Convention".

For 2010 we had several different colored regulars with the stem print "PCN East Coast 2010 Conventions". Silver ones were used only as prizes so a low number of them were released. For 2011, we had green and orange Coach Whistles with the stem print "PCN East Coast 2011 PEZ Convention". For 2012 we had more regulars with the stem print "PCN Northeast 2012 PEZ Gathering" and we gave attendees stickers for them to put on puck dispensers when they visited the PEZ Visitor center. A make your own convention dispenser! The stickers say "Northeast Convention Bus Trip April 20, 2012". The for 2013 we did the same things giving attendees two stickers, a "Baseball" convention logo for the puck and a sticker for the truck.

In 2013 we had stem printed Holiday dispensers. For the Northeast Convention we had the Witch and Pumpkin. A small number of Pumpkins were done for charity and both had the stem print "NE Convention 2013".  For Myrtle Beach 2013 we had a couple different Bunnies, White Head and Chocolate Bunnies. They had the stem print "Myrtle Beach 2013".  A VERY LOW number of these dispensers were given out.  Very hard to come by!

2014 & 15: On the left, we had an Alien theme for the convention.  We gave out the puck dispenser in the middle to attendees, and we had Monsters University dispenser with the Alien stem stickers as prizes.  Very hard to get q full set of 4 dispensers.  On right 2015, we had the PEZ Army theme and they got the Army Hero shown.  People that went on the group bus trip got a special dispenser-(Policeman Hero with dispenser stem sticker) only 55 given out.

2018 20th Anniversary Convention dispensers: Yes, they are done and waiting for 2018.  Pictured is a peek at the stem of one of the dispensers!

Will another "PEZ Collector Convention Exclusive" dispenser from PEZ be made available to NEPEZCON?  Don't know.... We plan and purchase all of our goodies well in advance.  If one becomes available we will purchase it PEZ do our best to be fair in distributing it.  In 2016, we made it available only to attendees because we could not fill all requests for absentee packages.  We limited attendees to one per pre-registered attendee as a convention upgrade package.  Therefore, we tried to give our attendees a chance to get a highly collectible/valuable convention dispenser and it is.
