    I wonder when they’ll change the logo to the current one

      They haven’t changed it yet so I doubt they ever will. They’ve got it in a fixed format and won’t change it now.

      Doing that would probablly get more complaints than answer them.

      It wouldn’t look right.

      Considering the very negative and angry reaction that bbc worldwide recieved reguarding the words special edition on the spine of the varos special edition i doubt GE Fabbri would fall into the same trap by changing the logo

      Why was there negative reaction to putting special edition on the sleeve. It looks good.

      It was down to they hadnt had it down the spine in previous special edition releases and it stands out. They also had it on both sides of the reversable cover which anoyed some.Plus some believed that their collection is now ruined because of the extra line of wording. However dan hall has stated future special editions wont have it on the reverse side

      If i collect something i am one of those who like things to look the same, i hated it when they changed the VHS logo or bought out special editions with completely different covers and the original logo was never in the same place.


      September 19th, 2012 - 11:23am

      I’m the same Booboo, I like everything to look right.

    Booboo I’m guessing you still don’t have MI issue 37 yet? 🙂

    • booboo

      September 18th, 2012 - 6:22pm

      no not yet, i should have had 37/38

    • The Supreme Dalek

      September 18th, 2012 - 6:25pm

      That’s weird, it seems everyone else is getting issue 37 and 38 and your not. 😐

    • That Cyborg over there

      September 18th, 2012 - 6:37pm

      Really? I’m a subscriber and I don’t have it. Should be coming either Thursday or Friday I would’ve thought.

    • The Supreme Dalek

      September 18th, 2012 - 6:40pm

      Yes, I’m quite surprised about it too! If you go to the Monster Invasion Issue 36 page, there’s 3/4 people who have recieved it. This is the longest it’s actually taken them possibly! 😐

      Plus, has anyone noticed that Set 3 won’t fit in the binder? That would mean that 3 cards couldn’t fit in, unless you also have in it the Autograph Cards and Exploding TARDIS, then 7 cards. Which means, you would also need space for the four flip cards and the Silence Will Fall card too. So basically, we need 12 more spaces. If only there was another page…. 🙁

      Issue 37 isn’t out until the end of the month so really nobody should have it yet, so we can’t really complain about it not having shown up yet.

      The DVD Files arriving nearly two months late on the other hand…
