Two brand new officially licensed Space: 1999 posters have been unveiled by Anderson Entertainment, after the company announced a recent licensing agreement with ITV Studios Global Entertainment.
Anderson Entertainment, the company founded by Gerry Anderson MBE – creator of award-winning TV hits including Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet, Stingray, UFO, Space: 1999 and Joe 90 – today announced the signing of the licensing agreement with ITV to produce a range of special Limited Edition collectibles over the next three years.
The first releases will include the pair of digitally painted Space: 1999 posters by Eric Chu (Battlestar Gallactica, Beetlejuice) featuring the full main cast of Seasons 1 & 2 of the iconic 1970s science fiction series. The two posters fit together as a panorama, and are each limited to just 1999 units worldwide. They will be revealed and go on sale this breakaway day (13th September) at the Alpha 2014 Space: 1999 convention. Other collectibles will include a 50th anniversary Stingray lapel pin, and a range of fantastic Thunderbirds merchandise which will be released in 2015 for the show’s 50th anniversary.
Jamie Anderson, Gerry’s son and Managing Director of Anderson Entertainment, says, “We’ll only produce a small, strictly limited number of high-quality pieces. Stingray first appeared in 1964, so we’ll only make 1,964 lapel badges and 1,999 of the posters for Space: 1999 – exclusively available from the Gerry Anderson online shop: shop.gerryanderson.co.uk”
