Eaglemoss to launch Marvel Fact Files Classic Specials

Marvel Fact Files is a weekly partwork that Eaglemoss have been publishing for over 200 issues, featuring articles and new artwork by UK creators. (I wrote a couple of articles for it myself a while back.) Now the publishers are launching a six-part mini series companion mag called Marvel Fact Files Classic Special. The new magazine will focus solely on the original Avengers from 1960s Marvel comics, and each issue will be accompanied by an exclusive figurine. Issue 1, available October 2nd, features Iron Man.

Here's how Eaglemoss are promoting issue 1...

"Who? or what is the newest most breath-taking, most sensational superhero of all...? High-flying golden Avenger IRON MAN of course!
Iron Man is our first 1960s Avenger to join this incredible collection of Classic Avengers a mini series part of Marvel Fact Files. This detailed Iron Man figurine captures the golden avenger in an action pose showing the essence of the original Marvel comic artwork. He is wearing his instantly recognisable classic red-and-gold armour with his distinctive ‘horned’ mask. Standing over 12 cm Tall Iron Man is ready to join his fellow Avengers!
Iron Man comes with a 16-page magazine is packed with detailed information on billionaire philanthropist, looking at the history of the most important events in Iron Man's comic career."

Marvel Fact Files Classic Special No.2 features Captain America...



Marvel Fact Files Classic Special No.3 features Giant-Man...


Marvel Fact Files Classic Special No.4 features The Incredible Hulk...


Presumably issues 5 and 6 will feature The Wasp and Thor. The price for this figurine/magazine combo isn't cheap at £19.99 an issue, but they should be highly collectable. As far as I know, this will be a nationwide launch, not a test run, but I'll update this article if I hear differently.
