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.

Space 1999 poster pair

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”

    I love the designs of both posters – very nice work again – but the Space:1999 logo on the Year Two version is lost by being black. I can see it’s meant to contrast with the Year One version, but wouldn’t a brighter colour (say, yellow) with a dark halo have worked better?

    Does this mean ITV may start showing Anderson series again…maybe on ITV4 in glorious HD?

  • Stu Rankin

    I’m afraid I will NOT be buying that year 2 poster ever. No Beta Cloud monster on it. Every other silly bit of latex except the coolest monster. Yeah right

    I raise my hat for the effort. At first i was charmed by the vivid colors, choices of elements and perspective, especially on the Y2 side.. But the more i look at them, the more i see small things i don’t really like. For example: What they have done to the face of Helena on the S1 side. Because they apply some kind of “water paint” effet, it changes the look of certain elements. And the hair of Helena’s on the S2 side are not representative of what we saw in the S2 episodes. Alan looks younger on the S2 side than on the S1 side, go figure.The merge in the middle is a nice idea….. Sorry if i offended anyone with these comments.

    Anyone spot the deliberate mistake? Yes Alan’s wearing a year 1 uniform on the year 2 side of the poster! :0

  • David Bolter

    Yep the 1st Year poster is the superior one. Must Have.
