UPDATE M2 Machines Pez themed Haulers

**UPDATE 6/23/17**
M2 Trucks are now being found in Walmart Stores. 
We have made notes that they have been found in 
Florida, California, Idaho, & Virginia. 
The limited haulers with the colored wheels 
have been random, usually not found with the complete set of 3. 
Our friend David M. has shared the UPC however it is the code on all the haulers.  
Happy Hunting!


Today on M2 Machines Facebook Page a post appeared with these new M2 Auto haulers.  The new trucks will be in limited numbers available at select Walmart stores coming sometime in June.

Red Truck + 1957 Chevrolet Sedan- Limited to 168 pieces
Yellow Truck + 1960 VW Van- Limited to 500 pieces
Blue Truck +1965 For Econoline Van- Limited to 500 pieces
  
M2's Facebook post reads
PEZ was first introduced in 1927 in Vienna, Austria as a breath mint for adults! The word PEZ was created using the first, middle and last letter in the German word for peppermint PfeffErminZ. Well, rolling in Walmart’s later this month is a collection of PEZ Themed M2 Machines Auto-Haulers. Though you won’t get any PEZ candies, I know we are bummed too, you will get a set of 3 differently themed PEZ Haulers each offered in a standard release and a limited release making the complete collection a 6-piece set.

2017 PEZ Old Dominion Hauler *Update* from the company

Today a dear friend found a 
Old Dominion Hauler 
listed on the Pez.com collectors year by year archive. 
This will surely be a hard one to find, we will keep you all posted with any information on where to find this new truck. 
Happy Hunting!!

As you all can imagine everyone is contacting Old Dominion Freight looking for the truck,  many Pez heads are getting this response from the company-

"At this time we are not selling the Pez dispensers outside of our company. If that happens to change, I will reach back out to you. Sorry for the inconvenience. Thank you." 
-Old Dominion Representative

We will all have to wait and see how this plays out.
Stay Tuned.

2017 Pez Portugal Gathering

In 2011 our dear friend Luis started his blog 

and in 2014 the first Pez Portugal Gathering was born. On June 10th in Castelo Branco, Portugal the 4th Portugal gathering happened. Pez rockets and balloon races were just some of the fun games for the gathering. This year the special commemorative Pez features a special made box for "Happy" the emoji Pez and this makes the 4th Pez made for the Pez Portugal Gathering. We are so happy to see all the smiles. Very nice Luis!!! Bravo!!

CONFIRMED! New color for PEZ Troll BRANCH...

First when we saw pictures of the Purple haired BRANCH from the TROLLS assortment, we wondered if this is just a factory error,
or did PEZ change the color? 
Today we can report, 
YES IT IS CONFIRMED! 
BRANCH now has an official new color, the blue has been changed to 
PURPLE!
Hair, eyebrows, eyes, and nose are now purple!
PEZ was working very closely with filmmakers during the 
development process. Sometimes the filmmakers decide on changes after the products are released.
Since we know more about the new color for Branch, we looked again at our pictures from the Sweets and Snacks expo in Chicago where the Trolls were on display, and we just found out that the new Branch was on display there *lol* 
long before the first pictures popped up on facebook.
Sometimes we just need to look closer :)
DJ Suki, Poppy, Branch, and Guy Diamond from
Dreamworks TROLLS
The TROLLS assortment, are one of our favorite releases from the last year, 
we are so excited to add the new Branch now and DJ Suki scheduled for a March release in 2018 to our collection.

We like to thank Paul Edward H. for the great pictures!

Pez Variation of Ace Hardware truck found!

Dear friend of Pez Palz Brent J. spotted new 
counter displays of trucks at his local Ace Hardware store.  
When he examined them closer he noticed some changes, on the 
2017 version the exhaust pipe is not painted, and PEZ is not written on the back. On the 2014 edition the headlights are painted white as where on the new one the headlights are the same color as the grill.
Nice catch Brent!! Thank You for sharing!!
