I got my first set way back in 2003, and it has been one of my favorite pieces in my collection. Last year I decided to start collecting the rest of the framed sets that were available, 2001-2015.

As of right now, I have managed to add eight additional sets via eBay and online third party WDW merchandisers. As of right now I have hit a wall; remaining sets have become unavailable.

Here is a picture of the framed sets I have amassed in the last year...

Sweet! I miss SWW. :(

I went to the first one in 2000, the last one in 2015 and several in between, traveling down to Orlando from NC.

Loved the SWW pins and coins sets.

Bane - Was a Framed pin set released for 2002? I have never seen one. I saw a Framed set was released for 2001 with an edition size of only 50!signed-2001-star-wars-weekend-framed-pins-ltd-ed-of_1_6162a17899510b892beeba045daeadf2.jpgsigned-2001-star-wars-weekend-framed-pins-ltd-ed-of_1_6162a17899510b892beeba045daeadf2.jpg

Yes, there should be framed sets from 2000 to 2015. I don’t have a pic of the 2002 set available.

I have recently seen on eBay the individual pins from framed sets being sold, but I’m
Looking for entire kit-n-caboodle.

There were two listings recently for sets that I didn’t have, but got sniped at the last second.

Which sets are you seeking? Perhaps I can help. From your photo, it looks like you might be searching for 2000, 2001, 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2011?
I am searching for 2004, 2005, 2006, and 2013.

If you know of any true fan who wants the individual pins, I have a LOT of carded SW Weekends extras. To explain, I was collecting individual carded pins before I discovered the awesomeness of framed sets. Now I have 15 carded 2007 pins that I don't need!

I thought I had the 2004 set? I’ll have to look again. If not, it’ll definitely be added to my list. Otherwise, yes, those are the sets I am looking for.

I started collecting a little over a year ago, and in that time I have lost on three eBay auctions at the last second on three different sets. I know getting all 16 framed sets will take some time.

Bane, Hopefully you won the 2008 Framed set on ebay tonight (Feb 2). (I didn't bid on it. I own it.)
I bid on it. Didn’t win. I would have bought off you for what I paid. Oh well.

Oh, no! The winning bidder placed his/her bid at the last 5 seconds:

6:46:11PM PST auction end
6:46:06PM PST last bid

Be patient. You will complete your collection! I will be bidding against you for the 2006 frame, though!

Would you happen to have any of the Snowtrooper pins? I used to do the parades there w/ the 501st, but somehow managed to miss getting those pins...

I was also a broke college kid at the time so didn't get a whole lot of swag at the time. Miss those days :(

Bane, can you update us on your pursuit of completeness?
Unfortunately, there hasn’t been any progress. First, the few sets I need don’t come about on eBay too often. Second, the few sets I do need so does everyone else. It becomes a bidding war for those last 10 seconds of the auction.

I keep checking eBay on a weekly basis, but there hasn’t been much to bid on.

Nice collection Bane.

I'm not a pin collector but I do have a nice selection of Millennium Falcon related pins in my collection.
