Anderson Entertainment shows inspire new collector product ranges

Anderson Entertainment has launched a series of collectors’ pin badge sets and notebooks inspired by founder Gerry Anderson’s iconic properties, Thunderbirds and Space:1999.

The badge sets – both of which are limited to 500 worldwide and retail at £39.99 – contain 12 exclusive, full-colour hard enamel lapel pins with gold, silver or black colour metal plate and push back fitting. Each pin is approximately 30mm in size. Both sets are presented in a collectors’ box using the new Anderson Entertainment family of brands packaging style.

The selection mixes imagery such as the International Rescue sash logo and the official Moonbase Alpha symbol with some rarities like the logo of the North Pole Laundry Service (as worn by the villainous Hood) and the patch worn by the Superswift crew in the two-part Space:1999 story, The Bringers of Wonder.

Meanwhile, the 160-page notebooks are formatted either as International Rescue notebooks (with an International Rescue logo on every page) or as Space: 1999 pilots’ notebooks (with a Moonbase Alpha logo on every page). Retailing at £14.99, these are produced in the UK with debossed cover and colour ribbon.

Both products will be available initially at the official Gerry Anderson online store.

The launch of the products comes soon after a new agreement with rights holder ITV Studios, which allows Anderson Entertainment to expand its ranges of product derived from its classic brands.

“Amazing imagery and design have always played a major part in making Gerry’s shows so memorable – and the market for collectables and stylish giftware inspired by his work is stronger than ever,” commented Jamie Anderson, md of Anderson Entertainment. “I’m sure Thunderbirds and Space 1999 fans will be thrilled with these beautifully designed and presented new additions to the Anderson Entertainment product portfolio.”
