It’s raining pins! Hallelujah, it’s raining pins. AMEN! I’m gonna go out, I’m gonna let myself absolutely soaking we- AHH, MY EYE! Word to the wise…if it’s raining pins, don’t look up, or jump in the puddles for that matter. Hello, you beautiful readers. Like I said in the Pixel Elixir review, we have become pin crazy here at PopHorror. I got sent a ton of pins by the awesome enamel pin company, Nerdpins, to unbox and show off to all of you. They range from horror to Disney to hilarious. Check out the unboxing below and then keep reading for more information, links and some fun pictures!
The variety on Nerdpins is amazing. A huge thank you to them for sending us so much to share with all of you. Let’s dig into the haul, break down everything and talk about design and quality.
“We all float down here.”
Poor little Georgie just can’t make his way up from the sewers. First up are two pins straight out of Derry. The first pin is the derelict Derry house at 29 Niebolt Street from the newest IT movie and it is a flat and shiny enamel pin, whereas little Georgie is a more classic style enamel pin with the slightly sunken design.
Oh, Dennis Nedry, whose greed got the best of him. This pin from Nerdpins is one of the most fun Jurassic Park pics I have ever seen. It is great quality with no paint bleeding, and the design is awesome. It is a standard sunken enamel style, and even the card it is on is cool. It is double backed with rubber stoppers to stop spinning. Clever girl.
Beetlejuice is one of those films that I saw as a child that disturbed me enough back then to last into adulthood. It still gives me the creeps… although, in my old age, I appreciate it more. Here we have two pins from the film, and it is the Deetz house miniature, complete with a spider friend and Lydia herself looking brooding, strange and unusual. They are both the sunken and textured pins and both are double backed. Here they are posing in front of a camera because it was Lydia’s favorite medium.
Remember that whole thing with the old Little Mermaid VHS clamshells and the fact that there was a big ol’ penis hidden in the castle? I sure do, and so does Nerdpins because they released a pin in honor of that XXX clamshell art. This pin is HILARIOUS to me. As soon as I saw it, I went into full belly laughter. This is a standard enamel pin with a double back. My only regret is not having my Little Mermaid VHS case anymore to pose it with, but I still have quite a collection.
Look at that dusty ass PS3 controller. Can you tell I haven’t used it in a bit? Games are my jam, and these are games in their purest form. I miss the arcades of my youth… Here we have three machines that have some wicked cool games. In a circle starting from the top left we have a Twilight Zone pinball game, a Galaga arcade machine and an Addams Family pinball machine. All three are standard pins, and they are pretty good sizes. All three are double backed. I am definitely feeling the love on these larger pins. The paint on these pins look great, and I don’t see any flaws on them.
The last pin from Nerdpins is a super nostalgic one for me. I got that badge after riding the Tower of Terror ride at MGM in Florida when I was young. I rode it with my dad, and it was so scary and awesome. It remains one of my most favorite rides of all time. I loved it so much I even have a DVD of the 1997 film Tower of Terror starring Steven Guttenberg and Kirsten Dunst. It’s ridiculously cheesy, and I love it. This pin is one that is completely smooth with a clear enamel over the top of it. The paint on it is great, even the little Hollywood Tower Hotel writing at the top. It is also double backed. What a great way to end the review!
That’s it for Nerdpins! I am super impressed with the quality of the pins and variety of their designs. You can browse through their collection, as there is a lot more than what we got to unbox. They all look great! On their WEBSITE,their pins range in price from $10-$12 dollars apiece. When you buy two pins on their site, you get a third mystery pin for free! That’s it for this review, but keep an eye on PopHorror for some bitchin’ stuff coming in the future.
