    I stand corrected, I really didn't expect there to be that many "geeks" (using the word lovingly) buying it.

    I'd never wear the generic stuff on park, only the old ride stuff (eg Ice Age 4D). Anyway I always carry a rucksack that obsures the writing lol

    I personally don't see any good reason for wearing old uniform on park on a normal day. I mean yeah, buy it and have a look at yourself in the mirror at home etc and enjoy them that way, or even if there was an out of hours special event at Towers like a tour or talk or something. Honestly baffled about wearing the stuff on a normal day though. I also echo what others have said about possible brand reputational damage.

    I mean each to their own, Personally I wouldn't buy old staff t-shirts but thats just a personal preference, but in the same way I dont buy clothing march from any theme park, I once bought a Wickerman Tee and it was poorly made

    When I worked at ODEON, any promotional material we had, t-shirts etc I would just use lounge or painting t-shirts after. But they were normally made so cheaply that one time a guy took his t-shirt advertising a release of Robin Hood off and it just ripped apart in his hands

    Forgot to take my name badge off once. Popped into Asda for some milk and a lady asked me where the Rich Teas were. I showed her then told her I didn't actually work there.

    I’ve kept a scruffy hoodie in my car for a while now that I usually wear if I go shopping anywhere after work, especially if it’s in the store I work at and it’s a Saturday. The latter’s especially important, as it means I no longer get stopped by customers asking where things are. Should’ve done this ages ago - makes life so much easier. :p

    I'm very sure my piece of EGF cable didn't even hit 3 figures.

    Nearly £400 is laughable for what is essentially scrap on a bit of stainless steel.

    That'll be an extra 50 quid premium.

    No typos on the text either? Seems odd.

    People will buy literally anything if they think it's somehow exclusive, they could have sold them all at twice the price.

    Maybe they’ve also been selling off various parts, props and effects from Duel. That would explain a lot.

    Although I think you'd be insane to buy such a thing, if people will buy it why not? There's plenty of other things they do to raise/save cash that are far more offensive
