    Not sure how they’re doing it but Rarewaves on ebay are doing the £80 deluxe set for just over £48. And they have at least a dozen copies.

    The missing TV21 audios and some ads and other bits will be on the Super Space Theater Blu we’ll receive in the Summer.

    I’m guessing that eventually Network will get Thunderbirds too. One can only imagine the package they’ll put together for that.

    Super deluxe set arrived today. Coloured vinyl, hardback book, new Pixley Bible, other bits and bobs. I’m 10 again.

    New documentary, Sylvia interview and loads more. Oh yes, the show in HD too. It’s great to see the series recognised as classic with this type of OTT product even though broadcasters don’t seem to realise.

    Likely the bonus disc 5 won’t be included on the standard release so get this while you can. I can’t recommend it enough. Simply magic.

    Had a quick browse and the Secret Service Annual looks superb. Will dig in after Xmas but just seeing it and opening it made me 7 all over again.
    Thanks

    Merry Xmas

    Obviously you know the market better than anyone but from an outside perspective the UFO Annual 1972 seemed like such an obvious thing to try. Even if only for the nostalgia that those of us old enough to have got the first one when it originally came out would feel it seemed surefire.

    I guess its a real long shot because of the format but the peak of Anderson annuals for me are the 2 years that the Joe 90 annuals came out in that lovely large size along with the TV21 & Captain Scarlet of those years too.
    Sequels to all those with a mix of new features and old strips that need sprucing up would be heavenly but I guess the heavy covers and large format might make them a bit risky. But if the page count is the same I’d happily shell out £25-£30 to once again be back on Xmas morning 1969 and 1970 browsing one of those beauties.

    The news story about FAB 98 mentions a competition to win the UFO Visual Archives book. I’m sure when I got one a few years back when it first appeared it had been put together by SLR?
    Last I heard was SLR was a no go area. Have things changed?

    The cereal promotions book is the best one for a long while allowing visuals more striking than the card related ones although they’re good too.
    The cd’s remain the shining star of the Fanderson merchandising but over the last couple of years printed content has gone to a new level also. The CloseUp/ Guidebooks are very welcome but the Super Space Theater book and new UFO Annual really get undersold when described as “fanclub” publications.
    SIG 21 was also an inspired addition
