4/11: Pictograms & Retailer Round-Up

A quick summary of the pictogram pin situation and retailer position.

There will be 38 Olympic pictogram pins and 21 Paralympic pictogram pins available individually. No mention of any sets yet, but I'm sure they'll be here eventually.

There seems to be an issue over the track cycling and mountain bike pins and these two will be delayed for a while due to manufacturing issues.

The RRP for each pin is £5.00 and the editions sizes are 5,000 for the Olympic pins and 3,000 for the Paralympic pins. So for a whole set you're looking at just shy of £300!

As for the retailers, this is the situation... (in alphabetical order - no favourites!)

Hux777 - is selling the Olympic pins now and plans to have the Paralympic pins

Museum of London - is taking pre-orders for 17 of the Paralympic pins but the website will be continued to be updated with the rest and they hope to have stock in the shop for all pins (apart from the 2 mentioned above) by next Monday.

Runners Need - is only stocking the track athletics pin in their shops. [Edit 6/11: Runners Need will not be supplying any individual pins other than the athletics pin, although will probably stock sets if they are created]

Thank you to all of the retailers above who have been good enough to share details with me over the last 2 days so that I could clarify what's available.

The inventory has been updated with details - no pictures until I get my pins!
