13/5: Olympic Torch Relay Logo Pins

Some of you may have spotted the two Olympic Torch Relay logo pins that have been listed on eBay and appeared at a retailer. These pins will be officially released this week to coincide with the start of the torch relay in the UK.

Pin 1130

Pin 1131

They should be available from your favourite retailer some time this week. The issue sizes are 100,000 and 50,000 respectively.

I'm guessing that the guy who paid 90+ pounds for one on eBay today is going to be pretty fed up by the end of the week then :)

More than likely. They were on sale last weekend in the Team GB shop in Stratford. Didn't buy one as I was attending a test event, thought they would see them inside. Nope...

Reminds me of the White Logo and the crazy prices paid back then

Sleathy said...

SO I guess they will be available form the sites with links on here then?

Geoff, I was at a test event last weekend to and was shocked there was no merchandise at all! London 2012 really missed an opportunity there... =/

I saw some in the stadium, a decent range as well as some items from the "Olympic Venue Collection". Got myself a previously sold out Team GB pin. The staff said some sold out pins have been held back by the Olympic stores to sell during the games.

JN said...

ooo so you was a lucky one into the stadium, I was in for the Riverbank arena and Eaton Manor, no such luck with pins over there =/

managed to work out the site of the 2012 Megastore and it certainly looks mega =] lets hope they have a very large pin wall =]

Geoff, what were the Olympic venue pins they had

Geoff said...

No venue pins I'm afraid, just venue clothing.

Morning - Two Torch relay Pins are now available on the Official 2012 shop - a gold one and a "flame" one. I guess they will be available at our favourite vendors shortly ... ???

Apologies - should have mentioned that the second of the two pins shown was available from early on May 15th at the T5 shop. Kind friend picked up two for me - one to keep, one to trade.

SO guys and gals

IS the top black(?)pin available anywhere? I have yet to see it advertised ...apart from the one that was on Ebay I think???

Is anyone contemplating trying to get all the 70 Torch Venue pins???

Matt said...

Black?? Isn't it the gold mirrored one (someone obviously wearing black or a black room)
Has anyone seen any Torchbearer pins??
I'm hoping to get a couple of my significant (my & partner's bday, and when the torch goes through my home town) torch pin badges. Anyone have any news on where these are being sold?
