***k me sideways! No they were £9.99 before if I recall. Still, if you know the demand's there, why not eh? Just pre-ordered three for now.

Wow, all the other binders are £9.99, we are getting gouged - I was going to buy a few but not at that price - the 'retro tax' multiplies up.

Is there a reason for all other mags binders being £9.99 and RG Binders being £12.99 then? Are they better quality or is it that Future knows we all want them and it's an easy extra few quid?! :?

I ordered (and paid for) 5 last Thursday (5th October). Not heard or seen anything. Are these shipping yet?

Opinions?

This looks like the place to talk about binders...

The RG binders seem to have spring-loaded strings, similar to the ones offered for the old (smaller) White Dwarf from Games Workshop. I had a lot of trouble getting the slim (32-page, staple-bound) White Dwarf magazines into those binders, so I am wondering how well these work. Is it easy to get the magazines in without damaging them? Does it comfortably hold 12 (or 13?) issues as advertised? I know the new binders aren't shipping yet, but it looks like some of you have experience with the old (and identical?) ones.

Also, will there be slipcases like some Future magazines? I think that might work better for a large magazine like this.

Thanks!

You have to stretch the strings (says so in instructions too).

No way do they hold 13 issues, 12 is ok.

Regarding slip cases, as the guy in Terminator said, "hey, just what you see" (look in the Future shop).

Hi guys, just to let you know that the binders have been slightly delayed, as the first run didn't quite match the old binders for colour. The expected delay is about two weeks.

If you've ordered binders you should be getting an email with this information, but potential buyers deserve to know too. :)

My three binders came through today!!! To be honest I do quite like the new front cover picture. Just a shame they took so long to come back. I think they'll be full in a couple of month's time!

Tidied this lot up at the weekend and labelled them with what issues are in each binder.
