Aside from regular publication, Sabra also published several one-shot collection books in a magazine format focused on a single model or group of models throughout years.

Sabra magazine ceased publication in March 2010, only special edition magazine books are being published in print and the members only site.[citation needed]

A Sabra magazine cover (Year 2004, issue 011) was used in the well-received video game series "Metal Gear Solid". In "Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater", the cover of said Sabra issue was used as representation of the "book" item in-game. The item is utilized as a distraction in the game.
