Pin Badges

Fri Jan 15, 2016 9:43 pm

Hello!
I am interested in knowing if anyone has the following pin badges they are willing to trade/sell towards a first time collector.
Nemesis sub Terra
Air (small)
Nemesis (round)
If you are selling any other pins please contact me and I may well be interested!
Many thanks

So I found these guys at a car boot sale

Image

I've seen the old original 90s Nemesis badge online before but I haven't seen the others anywhere. I've had a look online and I can't find any information about them. The little castle one looks like it could have been an old staff badge because it's not enamel like the others its in the pop style like other staff badges I've seen.

Any information would be great :)

What pin badges are available at Alton Towers this year? Thorpe Park had some nice ones (IMO) but cant find any photos of what AT have like limited edition ones etc. Are there any ones from 2015 left or have they all changed?

This year we have new limited edition badges from Galactica, TH13TEEN and Nemesis.

The Nemesis one looks like a pop badge stuck onto a pin. :)

Those pin badges look so nice :O I'm unsure whether to start collecting pin badges. Half of me says it's a waste of money, while the other half says "Oooh shiny! I want one!"

Personally I'm not a fan of this year's pin badges. I preferred the big sparkly ones from last year, like the ATR one that's still going. These ones look a bit cheap, especially Nemesis.

I've had an Oblivion 10 year celebration monkey puppet for some years now but have not heard of it anywhere on the internet. It's wearing a bright yellow hoodie, has an Oblivion badge reading 1998 - 2008 along with the Oblivion logo, and has a button in its tongue that produces monkey noises when pressed. Can't remember where I got it from but would be interested to learn more about it!

last time I went to Alton Towers, I came back with 6 mugs, (a collection) from the Towers Street store, I have been banned from buying anymore mugs.

I have got alot of use of them, which I simply wouldnt have done alot of the other merchandise at the park.

With regards to new pins, there is a new Smiler one out and RCR are currently selling a pin (although limited).

Apparently, Alton have big plans for pins next year!

I've noticed for the new Smiler pin, the little card that describes the product in Buy the Smiler states 'Collect them all!'. Looks like we're getting a collectable set in future!

That's good, I like a proper little collection rather than a load of random ones that don't look like they belong together.

I believe there will be limited edition pins for all rides next year, along with a lanyard. This will form one collection. Apparently, they will be the smaller pins too which is excellent news!

Although this isn't official Merchandise, I made this a couple of years back at school as a Technology project. (But the first 'S' is missing)
