I brought the four new idividual pin badges via their website and I love the Congo River Rapids one. They must know its my favourite ride at Towers as its also glittery. There was also a reply tweet that I saw this morning that hinted at potentially some Scarefest ones being released. I'm currently in the wrong place to show an image or quote what was said.

I absolutely love the new retro badges! They seem to be popular so really hoping they make some more. Beast, Thunder Looper, Around the World would be nice. It would be good if they could carry on the style of the newest four. Just having the plain simple logo on that smart black card they look great.

Looks good. Warwick have a nice metal pin of the castle too, you need to check that out!

 All of my pins this year havn't been added to my lanyards. I keep wondering whether to keep them in their packs, although I did say to myself last year just to enjoy them and not worry about it!

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.

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.
