Merch! The reason Towers Trading is full of people, geeks, sorry - enthusiasts at the end of the day, all faffing over which mug to add to their collection, or whether the newest hoody is in 'their' colour.

This season has seen the addition of some cool pieces of new merchandise at Towers... New mugs, resins, phone cases, syringe pens and A CARDBOARD OBLIVION to name but a few! So, what have you bought so far this season? What do you think of the selection this year? What else could Towers add?

Faff away, my pretties...

Well recently, I have only bought the 'Make your own Oblivion' set, a Nemmy Pin badge to add to my Swarm lanyard and of course one of the new Nemmy Jumpers..

One thing I do need to get is the new TH13TEEN mug. Oh and maybe a Terry T-Shirt. And maybe the Nemmy Bear.

AHHHH I NEED EVERYTHING!

Do not I repeat, DO NOT buy the resin phone case for a "reasonable" £6.50 it's an absolutely appalling piece of merch, it's flimsy, badly made and will fade after a week of using it. I bought mine at the meet Terry meet and is already sat on my cabinet not being used due to looking worn and tired only two weeks into using it!

I suppose it's ok if you use it just for theme park trips, but for everyday use is pretty shocking, I'll upload a pic of it in a min.

EDIT: here we go! It used to be all black, but is now a grey/blue with white flakes!

RustyRider, my Nemmy one did much the same thing after 24 hours! I now have a replacement one sitting next to me. Send Merlin an e-mail and they will (eventually) get you a new one.

The cases are actually £6 - and the iPhone 3GS ones are great. It's just the silicone ones that fail...

I must admit, I don't really look in the shops, because I know anything I do buy I leave lying around and never use...although saying that, we did buy a TH13teen alarm clock this year (of course, the '12' was replaced with the '13' logo), and it's ticking away in the hall!

Hi folks,

can anyone tell me if they still do the 3 items (ie...trophy, medal etc) for £20 or has it changed?

How much is it for the photo tokens now?

Also how much is the 13 picture frame?

Many thanks,

Gareth
