It is with pride that the PEZ CLUBE PORTUGAL put some answers here, from a small inquiry of one portuguese PEZ collector - Luís Macedo, author of pezclubeportugal.blogspot.com
How start your collection, from what age and what is the first PEZ dispenser in your collection?
I remember having a Garfield in the 80's but do not know where he went. I just started collecting in September 2011 and the first that I bought was the Kung Fu Panda, Po.
How many years collect PEZ?
Only 10 months, a few hours and a few seconds... :-)
How many PEZ Dispensers have in the collection?
You collects only PEZ Dispensers or all products of PEZ Candy Inc.?
The PEZ Dispensers and the PEZ Guns. Also try to collect the plastic PEZ as cars, boats, etc., but only got two and one Panda Yummy bubble.
What PEZ Dispenser is the favourite of your collection?
I have several favorites, especially the older ones due to the type of design more "primary and basic", such the old dispensers of Disney. Most current like a lot Morinaga Gundam, especially the "RX-78-2 Gundam" and all Super Heroes from Marvel and DC Comics! On my list of favorites are still many dispensers offered by Cliff Lee, author of the PEZ CAR Project. A pride for me! :-)
Generally yes, it is customary to give no more than 10 euros for one Dispenser. If there is a good vintage or a PEZ Gun... deserves a little more of course.
Where you buy PEZ?
Local shops, online shop and eBay.
What is the maximum amount you offered for a PEZ dispenser?
I do not recall having made a madness... yet. :-)
Do you think PEZ Candy Inc. could be more innovative in some PEZ Dispensers repeated characters?
I think so. Maybe the problem is the copyright, but it could be a little more diverse. Was good sell all PEZ dispensers in all world and not just in a particular continent. We spend lots of money on online purchases that could be for the PEZ company. It would be nice to have more variety in Portugal, too.
What PEZ dispenser that does not exist and that you want PEZ Candy Inc, to manufacture one day?
Lucky Luke and the Daltons, Jolly Jumper and Rantanplan. Dr, Octopus, Sandman, Venom, ... from Marvel and of course, Stan Lee! Much more Super Heroes and a new PEZ gun century XXI! Hum... and new Star Wars figures such Han Solo and the machines of the Thunderbirds! :-)
Can you spend a day without thinking about PEZ?
What advice would give a new PEZ collector?
Fall in love with PEZ!
In addition to PEZ, collect anything else? What?
I collect a few small coins / medals called "Pathtags" and drawing them too. I also have some comics from Marvel and DC Comics and collect figures and ships from Star Wars!
Thanks to me! :-)
