I'll buy it, but it is disappointing that it has a white border around the actual logo. Then again, I believe it is only £2, so I'm not going to grumble too much.

Is the border white? I thought it was silver with the light shining on it! Would have been better silver!

For me it has probably got to be my smiler gnome and my Smiler print.

Picked one of these up yesterday, they are £3.50. Better than I was expecting, but could of been so much more!

Its worth pointing out what they said on their FB post.
It's time for (arguably) the most important vote you'll make today! Which of our four new pins, available exclusively from Towers Trading Company, are you most excited for?


So it looks like these will only be available at Towers Trading and not via their online shop

Well, this is a difficult choice but I can see the Corckscrew badge winning a clear majority from the voters! :lol

I'll be buying the Corkscrew and Black Hole pins, but to be honest, it's likely I'll buy all 4! I hope we see more as they look great!

Only got back from Alton Towers last week to get the new pins that had been released this season as well as the Strong one.....

Damn you Alton oh well time to go back to the park and grab all the pins and have a cheeky ride on Nemesis front row while we are there. :lol

I'm really hoping to get the Corkscrew and Black Hole pins, trouble is I'm about a 7 hr flight away.... I do hope if we push them then they'll have a few online.

Here's hoping they will do well and we'll get ones for other old rides such as Thunder Looper and Haunted House!

Damn again Alton Towers after we get off Nemesis it'll be back to Towers Trading to get the above starter set......

8 new pins announced on the same day this must be Disney records ..... time to check my Rota and work out the next trip back to park.

Honestly though all joking apart I'm glad that the pins are being pushed again as it's been frustrating the last few years when pin releases have been few and far between so whoever came up with the idea of new pins in the Merch Department at Merlin/Towers I applaud you :clap: :clap:

The big 6 challenge "STRONG" pin badge is now available on the Towers online shop, I'm sure the others new badges will follow soon
