Collect this magazine and build a car / skyscraper / animal
You must have seen those adverts on tv promoting series of magazines that are going on sale. The ones where each weekly / monthly magazine comes with a piece of a structure that you build.
The adverts normally go along the lines of "collect this magazine weekly and build yourself a to scale figure of a battleship. The first magazine is only 99p"
I bet parents all over the world then have kids wanting to collect the magazines so they can build the figure of whatever it is.
Well I've never really paid much attention to those adverts. Until now.
There's one being advertised now, as always, the first edition is 99p.
I've just noticed that subsequent magazines are £5.99.
And how many do you need to buy in order to build a plastic figure of whatever it is? 80
Now by my calculations, that means that if you bought all the magazines to make the figure, it would cost you nearly £475!!!
Does anyone actually do this?
