Memorial clock

This month's Gangan comes with a special freebie: a FMA memorial clock! Yikes! Since when did magazine give out such expensive freebies? In my days, freebies were either made of paper or cardboard, or plastic bags with illustrations! (Well... nowadays some fashion magazine includes mirror compact or even cosmetics...)

Yes it looks expensive. But the illustration isn't elaborate at all. It's like a page from a colouring book. Quite flat. Hmm... I don't know how much time it takes to manufacture stuff like this, but chance are, they're made in China. (Could someone verify please?) This probably requires extra time. The illustration probably had to be handed in earlier too. Which means, That could be a few chapters before this, when the battle was at it's height. I can understand Arakawa would be super busy and opped for a simple design to save time.
