I hadn't heard they were discontinued... I have all but that rare coin one. I've never seen it in RL.

They haven't been given any reason why from their distributor as far as I know. I only have 4 more to get besides the new coin ones.
most stores in my city say they have been waiting 6+ months

I was told by numerous store owners in my area that they stopped shipping them out in October due to the lead paint scare from China. Ganz has had a private company test them and they were all deemed safe but since they had to stop shipping them that there is a huge back order from all of the stores and they just got the go ahead to start shipping them again. So you should start to see them in stores again shortly (a month or two). Also was told be an insider that there was talks of making the charms out of plastic if they couldn't work through the lead paint issue.

Out of plastic?? That would be really ugly. Why can't they make them in Canada or the US? Thank you for the info.

I asked a store they said that there would be shipments in 2008 but they are on hold for a while (maybe so they can raise the prices)

I have checked a few stores and they all say they are on back order. I never heard about the lead thing but that makes sense. I have to call them anyways so I will do that in the morning and ask. They are about 20 mins from my moms house.
