Asterix: a Gaul in tempered steel!As Summer 2008 approaches and brings with it the promise of long days of sunbathing on the sandy beaches of Armorica, our indomitable Gauls are in top form. Fulliautomatix sums up the mood saying “We Gauls have steeled ourselves for 2008!”
And it’s our music-loving blacksmith who brings us proof of this: two superb Asterix and Obelix embossed metal plaques, all ready to invade Gaulish shops. Produced to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the first edition of the Asterix at the Olympic Games album, these two plaques capture two key moments of the adventure for eternity: Asterix in the athlete’s parade bearing the Gallo-Roman flag and the unforgettable encounter between Obelix and Gluteus Maximus.
As the stamp of authenticity (“certified Fulliautomatix production”) provided by Asterix’ blacksmith attests, these plaques are exceptionally high quality: printed in four colour process on 0.5mm-thick tin plate, they are painted and embossed to emphasize, among other things, Gluteus Maximus’s impressive set of muscles.
And Fulliautomatix has thought of everything: four small holes allow you to hang these plaques on the walls of your Gaulish home.
So then, how can you get your hands on one of them? Make a date for 18 June 2008, D-Day for the launch of these plaques in all participating Gaulish bookshops in France. And you will receive one of these two plaques free when you buy two Asterix albums, but beware: limited stock only! There’s bound to be some impromptu scrambling for these plaques from fans eager to add these Fulliautomatix-certified collectors’ items to their Asterix collection!
