Issue 7 of the Thunderbirds Are Go comic has hit news stands.
The comic is firmly sealed in a glossy outer sleeve, with a clear raised window to show off the nine, yes nine free gifts of badges, stickers, a John Tracy dog tag, a tattoo sheet and a wrist band.
Obviously the publishers must think these freebies will be highly collectable and have anticipated the huge demand, so much so that they've raised the price by a whooping pound to £4.99!
The cynic in me thinks it's to cover the probable drop in demand now that the model free gifts have ended, but what do I know.
Is it worth nearly a fiver? Maybe to a kid of seven I suppose, but I'd be very surprised if older fans will bother, even without the price hike. The comic is the usual lightweight fare of 'in your face' graphics with a collector's cover that I wouldn't want in my collection.
If anyone over seven is still remotely interested, next month's issue has another free badge and a 'rescue' torch!
