I was sat watching television last night when three partwork adverts came on during one advert break.
Three of them!
The first thing I thought upon seeing the first was 'don't these things usually show up in January? Why now?'
By the time the third commercial aired, I started wondering whether I had skipped four months and it was 2015 already.
I'm not stupid. I know these magazines pop up throughout the year. It's just that I hardly ever notice an abundance of commercials for them in one sitting.
Unless it's the start of the year, of course. I guess the gimmick is to promote these things when people are thinking of starting new things for a new year.
Hey, why not collect pieces of a Tyrannosaurus Rex for the next 104 weeks!?
So, if you are looking to build your own U-Boat, Mallard train or just want to collect bugs encased in plastic you can do so right now.
All you have to do is find them. They're available at 'all good newsagents'.
