Star Wars Legion Magazine? DeAgostini

Star Wars is big business. The franchise alone has brought in more than the GDP of some small countries and more or less anything that carries the logo is liable to sell. 

It has recently come to light that partworks publishing company DeAgostini is about to soft launch a brand new magazine aimed to get new players into Star Wars miniature games.

Star Wars: Legion Magazine is currently soft launching in France and retails at €1.50 and contains what looks like to be two rebel troopers, one die, one barrier and Darth Vader from the Star Wars Legion core set (see image below).

Also included are a paint brush and four small pots of paint!

Partworks magazines build up into a collection over a set number of issues, which will then give you either a complete collection or an item. With 100 miniatures in the set, this will most likely include not only all of the core set of Star Wars Legion, but also a lot of the expansions.  Given that Fantasy Flight Games are now moving over to hard plastic for Legion and other games, this makes sense to use up old stock which is relatively cheap to manufactor once the moulds have been made.

There is no word as of yet on the issue count, but the image does say that there are 100 figurines in the set. DeAgostini has a long-standing relationship with Star Wars and producing magazines and partworks based on the IP, and have released the Star Wars Helmet Collection, Build your own X-Wing and Build your own R2D2 over the past few years, and have come under attack from fans as the X-Wing magazine would cost over £1000 to complete.

Most likely this magazine will launch in other territories within the next month or so and once more details are available I will, of course, post them.  I reached out to a contact at DiAgustini who was unable to comment, but more news as I get it.
