Picked up these awhile back. They work great:

Those wrench ones are pretty stellar. If only they were longer though. They scrape the fudge out of my arms when I'm reaching in my purse. I took to using the clutch-y type pin backs with the spring, but while they're better than butterfly and rubber backs, I've still lost my fair share of them. Just glad I haven't lost a pin.

I do know the odds are slim but if anyone has one of these they'd be willing to let go, let me know please.

New Enamel Pin Collection from Upper Playground. I was hoping they would have some disgusting Choe pins (like FFFC) up there.

The beer chaser one is pretty cool.

Will probably pick up that Portal 2-pin set at some point. That's just awesome.

Oh and also, if anybody ever needs a PB for any pins released at Disneyland, Universal Studios, or Knott's (does anybody care about pins from those last 2?) feel free to hit me up. I'm at each of those parks about once a week (Disneyland sometimes twice a week, though it's rare) so I can try to pick them up for you.

I started a series of pins called "Poster Collecting Merit Badges" which premiered at the SDCC meetup.

If anyone is interested I have some extra sets available for $20 shipped. There are going to be more in the series and I'm hoping the next round is ready for MC3.

The pins are titled: Outdoor Activiites, Money Managaement, and Computer Skills.

Those are hilarious (and SO relevant)

Are they 1" diameter single post?
