Wow! That's quite a collection you have! How long has it taken to get that many?

I've been collecting since 2013, but I've lost a few along the way (such as an Air one), most of the ones in the pic I got within the past 2 years.

Never seen these before, but just ordered some as I get so paranoid about losing pins!

Not my auction, but a great buy!

They're a cool idea, although I've had issues with the pin separating from the front with some of the Merlin ones. For the price these are getting to, it wouldn't hurt for them to be a bit more durable!

Yeah, I've seen a few go that way, but agree with you on the price front as they have crept up in price over the last few years. £3.50 is a lot, but this provides more of a reason why I've purchased a pack of these just to try. I have some rare pins now and I'd hate to lose one!

I've never had a Merlin pin badge break on me, but my only "non metal" one is the STRONG one.

Mine's looks like plastic, but I've just checked and it's metal

Ha! It's the laminated front that makes it look plastic.

Worth a buy and the quality is good. I use mine for event badges.

No worries. The only pin I don't like to much is the Nemesis one from last year. That is plastic fronted!

My absolute fave is my 2017 Rita Pin, it's an absolute beaut, but I carefully Pick and Choose mine. Nemmy's never had a good pin in my eyes, other than Neme21s a couple of years back!

I'm personally not keen on pins which have any moving parts or attachments, but pins have been getting better over the past few years.

I have an original nemesis 1994 pin but that’s in a bag on my shelf and that’s where it’s staying! There’s no way I’m going to risk losing that!!!

So a scarefest 2017 badge has been released and already sold out by 5pm this Saturday according to the public on Facebook. One person claimed they were told there would be no more stock until fireworks? What is the point in that and of it's true I'll be disappointed very much.

The controversial SW8 wood (which I love) is being sold in batches, so I hope this will be similar. I expect more will be placed on sale next weekend.
