Going on sale later this month nationwide is the Official Figurine Collection Magazine. Each issue will give pictures and information about one particular character and will come with a free figurine. There is also a binder, but I think it is for subscribers only. I'm also not sure of price right now either, but I do have info on the first 5 issues Smiley

Here is some info about what you can expect.

Every issue of the magazine gives you essential information about the featured character and reveals the inside story of Doctor Who.

Your figurine…
Get up close and personal with your figurine, discover exactly why they look the way they do, uncover hidden details and learn how they have evolved over the years.

The moment…
Every figurine recreates a specific moment from a classic story. Go behind the scenes to get the inside story of how the production team brought it to your TV screen.

50 years of Doctor Who…
Get the whole story with this incredible timeline that takes you from Doctor Who’s beginnings in 1963 to the latest episodes.

The Doctor Who universe…
An in-depth profile of an essential element of the Doctor Who universe including Time Lords, UNIT, Daleks, and much more.
PLUS Mysteries answered and the people who made Doctor Who happen

I'm wary of these things as I once started collecting a Star Trek one (it didn't have nice figurines though, just magazines) & it went on for ages. I still have them all, but they take up so much room.

This has an initial run of 24 with the option to extend (though I don't imagine that it will based on how poorly other magazines are fairing).

The test magazines they ran with select subscribers earlier in the year obviously had a good return, because 24 to 80 is a big bump.

Might be worth it for the figures, but I'm not sure the magazines would tell us anything new. It doesn't seem much different to Monster Invasion.

Issue one is now on sale. I saw it this week in the shops and the figure actually looks really cool. I didn't buy it because I know I'd be starting something that I'd force myself to continue, but they do look good.
