Is TV-related and Sci-Fi toy collecting dead in the press? When I started collecting there were loads of magazines in the UK specifically for the TV and Sci-Fi collector like me, magazines like Model and Collectors Mart, Memorabilia, not to mention those cool US titles like Collectable Toys and Values.
What on earth has happened? There aren't any on the UK shelves anymore and haven't been for ages. OK, the Collectors Gazette newspaper occasionally runs something Sci-Fi but virtually all the magazines in the shops are relentlessly devoted to die-cast cars.
Now don't get me wrong, I loved die-cast as a kid growing up in the Sixties. Hot Wheels, Superfast, Sizzlers, I loved them all BUT I don't collect them now I'm all growed up. I collect space and Sci-Fi TV-related plastic toys and particularly love to read about them, which used to be easy when publishers took a chance on publishing magazines about them.
Are we destined to drown in countless column inches about die-cast forever? What do you think readers?
