This past week there have been many "Artist Proof" pin sets released on Disney's Auction site.
Each set is comprised of three pins: one in black metal, one in gold and one in silver finish. The Roger and Jessica Friendship set, Christmas Jessica pins, Roller Coaster Rabbit and Park Ranger Jessica have all been released as three pin sets. With only one set of each available, the bids are climbing high.
The regular Jessica Park Ranger pin has been released and now off the auction site, but check back to see if they relist any, much like they have done with the Roger and Jessica Friendship set - even selling it for a few dollars cheaper the second time around.
If you decide to purchase a pin remember that Disney's Pin A Palooza has begun. With every order you place on Disney's Auction site you can get a free pin. The pins are picked for you at random and include characters like Donald, Stitch, Tinker Bell and Jessica. Each pin is black metal finished and a limited edition (the edition size varies for each pin.) While checking out for your order you have to enter the coupon code "giftpin" and then click the "add" button, then "apply." It's a process but you must make sure it's added to your order before you finalize the order!

Now available on Disney's Auction site are the Jessica as Mrs. Santa pins.
So far only two of the three pins are up for purchase, Jessica putting on her Christmas hat and her holding a candle. The pin of her holding a gift still isn't up but may be released later in the week. There are still a few pins left for sale at $12 each.
Available in Disneyland Paris on December 11th is the Jessica Christmas dangle pin. The only way to get this, unless you live in or plan a trip to France, is on eBay.
Also, coming soon are three new pins. First is a two-pin set in a "yin and yang" style of Jessica and Roger. The next is a pin of Jessica leaning against her jeep as a Park Ranger from Trail Mix-Up! Last is a pin of Roger and Baby Herman from Roller Coaster Rabbit. It's not clear when and where these three pins will be released, but it appears they will be available on Disney's Auction site as well in the near future.

The elusive picture frame was finally captured today. Unlike what I previously mentioned - the Roger and Jessica sculpture picture frame is exclusive to DisneyLAND (not Disney World) and can be found at their World of Disney Store. Thanks to the park usuals posting on message boards who remember seeing it, I was finally able to track down this item.
It sells for $20.00 and you do NOT need a SKU number, they found it right away with the description. (Although when I get the item I will post the sku anyway) Just call Disneyland Deliverears using the number in the Database section.

Dubbed the Jessica "Mrs. Santa" pins, maybe she once again asks who's been naughty or nice!
Pin collecting is something either people like or do not. The reason I think it's pretty good is because you can at least get a good piece of merchandise of your favorite character that is relatively inexpensive.
But in terms of Jessica pins this year, not much has been released. To date, only eight pins have been released in parks, as opposed to the over 20 from last year.
Yes, even I was getting tired of the pins. This years Jessica Nurses Day pins was pretty much the same as last years, and I still haven't gotten a few of them that came out this year. They weren't as "fun."
But that all changed last week while addressing this on a Disney pin website. I was pointed directly to images of the soon to be released Jessica six pin set. Darn my big mouth. Luckily I asked because the very next day the pins were on the Disney Auction site. I did win a set and I'm anxiously awaiting their arrival. What made me want to get them is they are limited to only 100 - are gold finished, have glittered gowns (finally) and are larger than regular pins. Oh, and that they are of JESSICA! So they weren't the usual pins.

We haven't seen the large volume of Jessica pins lately that we saw last year. Also Mickey's All American pin festival, which was supposed to begin on June 20th, has been postponed until a later date (which hasn't been set). The pin craze continues, but it seems there are less and less being released - in volume and variety.
But finally there is a new one on the way and it's great!
On SEPTEMBER 10 - 12, 2004 in Orlando, FL, EPCOT will be hosting A Family Pin Gathering - Disney's Pin Celebration 2004.
So far there will be 10 different pins for the event. Pin # 10 is an Artist Choice designed by Cody Reynolds (you might remember he designed the Jinglin' Jessica Christmas 2000 ornament).
It features Roger and Jessica hugging with a heart background and the artist choice logo below. This Limited Edition of 1000 will be a pin-on-pin design. The two hearts surrounding Roger and Jessica on this pin will spin! It will retail $12.50.
The other pins will feature Micky, Minnie, Donald, Goofy, The Dalmatians, The Mudville Baseball Team, The Aristocats, Grandma Duck, Peter Pan, Tink and Crocodile, Dumbo & Family, and Belle.

Just released in Disneyland is the Jessica Rabbit 3D mug.
Finally a companion to the Roger mug that came out a few years ago - this stunning royal blue mug shows Jessica Rabbit parting the curtains and ready to step on stage at the Ink 'N' Paint Club. Turn it around and it is the the "backside" of the image. The images are 3D - with the photo having a raised effect to it.

Star of "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" and headlining her own 2004 Showstopping Spring Event, Jessica Rabbit's "I'm Not Bad, I'm Just Drawn That Way" sculpture has made the cover for the March/April 2004 Issue; No. 55. Also included in the magazine is a full page ad for the event with stunning graphics and a very close up photo of Jessica. (tomart.com.)
The magazine also goes on to remind people at the event on March 26-28 guests buying this statue in person only will get a special crystal piece in the shape of a stage door engraved with Jessica's name (and kissmark) and dates of the event. You can find it at most book stores.
Also, in celebration on the event, Disney artist Allison Lefcort has made a 24" x 24" painting of Jessica in a very familiar pose entitled "Femme Fatale."
The Jessica statue is available for pre-order at DisneyStore.com - but you might be in for a wait. Upon ordering mine, I was sent this letter a few days later from Disney Direct Marketing Services:
Thank you for your recent order. We are sorry to inform you that the shipment of the merchandise listed below has been delayed. However, we are committed to ship the product to you within 30 days from the original agreed due date.

Expected Ship Date
We will keep your order "active" and ship the merchandise as soon as it becomes available.

"I'm Not Bad, I'm Just Drawn That Way"
March 26-28, 2004
World of Disney, Downtown Disney District, Anaheim, California
She may be married to a rabbit, but she's all woman. It's Jessica Rabbit, the Ink and Paint Club's red-hot vocalist from Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988). As every sugar daddy and stage door Johnny knows, Jessica can really heat things up, stopping the show whenever she struts her stuff on the nightclub's runway. Dressed in her slinky, sparkling gown and plussed with bronze shoes and glitter paint, Jessica's definitely a crowd pleaser - but this sultry songstress is also at the heart of Toontown's darkest mystery. This fine art porcelain sculpture is being released in a numbered limited edition of 5,000.
The Jessica Rabbit "I'm Not Bad, I'm Just Drawn That Way" sculpture will be offered for $150, plus tax (sculpture stands 9 inches tall) during the dates of the event. Limit two (2) per Guest. In addition, if you choose to purchase your Walt Disney Arts Classics Collection "I'm Not Bad, I'm Just Drawn That Way" sculpture from World of Disney, you will receive an exclusive crystal piece created by Arribas Bros.
No wish list will be taken for this event. For more information please contact Disneyland DelivEARS at 800.362.4533. Information subject to change without notice. Certain discounts and promotions will not apply.
