I have been a Toyfare subscriber from issue 1. In fact, I think the first issue was actually #0?
The quality of the comedic writing really dropped noticeably after the original staff members bailed, but I stuck with the magazine because it was still fun to flip through it.
I've saved all the issues. I used to buy AFTRN and AFD early on, but I dropped those once Toyfare came out.
I just sent them a check about 2 weeks ago to extend my subscription for another year.
