::fangirling:: Ah! I've had a anime pin-fancy since 2000. Haven't counted how many... I'm guessing a hundred or close to that number. But I've sadly slacked off in purchasing new anime pins. The pin backs are so unreliable! A handful of them have been lost from falling off my lanyard and backpack and whatnot. So I've moved on to keychains. And plushies. Oh and stickers. Blah, they're all mixed together in a giant tote box, so it's hard to tell what's goin on with my collection now. Anime collecting is an expensive hobby. v_v

Maybe my rarest one is Youzen (Houshin Engi). My favorite one has gotta be Hidaka Ken (Weiss Kreuz). Just because it's Ken. :) Man, those pins are so cute.

When I bought the Complete Collection box set of Witch Hunter Robin, included inside were three pins. I love those things to death; I even wore them last ACen (and will this year!). One is of Robin (full body), the second is a group shot of the STN-J. The third, Amon's head, sadly I can't find it. I think I gave it to someone. That was my favorite, too.... :(

I guess in a sense I have a promo/anime/picked up in my travels pin/ button collection.
It all started my freshman year of high school back in 1997/1998, my pareants bought me one of those jackets with the school name on the back ( Varsity?). I decided since I probably wouldn't get any patchs for it, since I was not on any sports teams, I would try to see how much of it could be cover with pins by the end of senior year in 2001. Needless to say about 3/4 of the front of the jacket was covered by then. During my time in college I'd still put buttons on it from time to time. But not really to much. I throw some pins on my work smock at Hobby Lobby sometimes, plus I currently wear a few on my lanyard I wear as a teachers' aid.
Then came the weeks after I found out I had cancer(I been cancer free for a while now as a good chunk of forum members know) in December 2005. One of the items I got for Christmas that year was a hat, that can be seen it my profile picture, that kinda looks like the one that Jamie wears on Mythbusters.-later on in May 2006, I picked up a liter hat for the warm months- I decided as a conversation start for when I'd be places, I would start pick up and putting different pins on it switch them out and updating them every four to six months depending on the number that had a massed on my hats. So now any pin that I take off either hat ends up on my old high school jacket.
The only pins that are switched back and forth between the two hats are my two cancer survior pins, my Oh No! I bust a nut button, a Ryoko pin, my tea club button, and my Azumanga Daioh Yama pin

So currently, the pins/buttons have covered all of the front and now is slowly starting to creep on to the sleeves and back.
