No Transformers Pez Dispensers?



So, I decided to take a few minutes to create a site full of pez related auctions. And yes, that means that I've finished rewriting my wordpress ebay plugin – it's now a self contained content management system, rather than sitting on top of wordpress or any other software.

When I was searching for popular types of pez dispensers, one that popped into mind was Transformers. Surely I had seen Transformers Pez Dispensers before, I was absolutely certain of it.. but you know what? I couldn't find them anywhere.

Did I imagine these? Are they so rare that they appear as if they don't actually exist?

What gives?

    I have an Optimus Prime lollipop cover. Picture a lollipop and a plastic cover which is Prime's head. There is a hinge on the bottom of Prime's head which opens his head into two parts to reveal the lollipop. It's certainly not a PEZ dispenser, but it's along those lines. I think they also came out with a Megatron version.

    What size lollipop does it fit? I'm hoping you say "It fits on a 24" lollipop"… because that would be AWESOME!

    Also, flat lollipop, or a sucker?

    ooooooooooooh moose. THAT'S what i was thinking of. I totally thought i've seen transformers pez dispensers. But it was an Optimus Prime lollipop twister. Yeah. Doesn't it spin the lollipop?

    Hey, i'm re-reading the Transformers Spotlight on Blurr. It's sooooooo good. I'll have to let you borrow it sometime.

    Someone did a coverup.

    They existed.

    Someone used some sort of alien beam to zap them all away, and they erased our memories. But they didn't get mine, cuz I was wearing an aluminum beanie that day. Those aliens can't get past aluminum beanies. For a long time I had an aluminum beanie to protect my computer against solar flares. Lo and behold, i was protecting it from alien memory erase beams as well. Those aliens taking away our Transformers PEZ dispensers. Why would they du such a thing?!

    it's a round lollipop or sucker. It is not the flat 24" variety lollipop.

    There exists a lollipop/sucker spinner. The lollipop is placed into a handle whose form is that of Optimus Prime. Essentially you are putting the lollipop into the top of Prime's head. However, that's not I was referring to. It's an enclosure the lollipop head. You put the lollipop into Prime's head. I guess now I'm going to have to photograph this thing.

    There are people out there who will fashion their own custom PEZ dispensers. It's possibly you have seen one here or there somewhere.

    Well yeah! We need a picture whether or not spud understands.
    I gotcha.. you have, basically, a SUCKER PROTECTOR. Optimus Prime defends your lollipop against the evils of DUST.

    I think spud is talking about those old "spin-pop" type things. Like these: http://www.hasbro.com/shop/details.cfm?guid=93075127-6D40-1014-8BF0-9EFBF894F9D4&product_id=18246&src=endeca

    except not.. I was picturing the ones where the spinner was motorized and only spun the sucker. Those mini transformers ones have a squeeze handle and it looks like the entire figure spins.

    I'm shocked that nobody on the internet thinks this is the official Transformers Pez page. Where are the comments from misguided people asking you to purchase Transformers Pez Dispensers. Internet, you fail me.

    This post has only been up for 1 day. Give them time, they will come!

    And maybe someone will have a story about their homemade Optimus Prime Pez Dispenser!

    Have yet to see a transformer pez out there. There is strong potential for a new series to come out with the new movie coming up.

    If you are looking for some GREAT multiuse PEZ creations, check out http://dhhdesign.etsy.com. There are some really great PEZ USB drives.
