*QUICK UPDATE 30.10.2011*
I’ve got a spare set of these finishing tomorrow on eBay UK if you’re interested: http://bit.ly/tMJ0Gc
To mark 50 years of the genius that is Gerry Anderson, the Royal Mail are releasing a set of stamps on 11 January 2011. And while we’re at it, why hasn’t Gerry had a Knighthood yet?
Just got my Presentation set of stamps. And what beauts they are!
Yes, you read me right FAB fans – Lenticular Stamps – “moving” images. Never been done before in a set of stamps. Following link is for a little movie I shot this morning to show you exactly what they’re like:
LENTICULAR STAMP MOVIE LINK (TAKES A LITTLE WHILE TO LOAD – SORRY)
Also included in the set is a four-page Thunderbirds comic – a collaboration between Royal Mail and TV21. The whole set costs £7.50 and I suggest you run along to your nearest Main Post Office right away and get some. The Royal Mail Website has a number of other Gerry Anderson goodies, including First Day Covers and metal Stamp Pins.
Gerry has just announced to (frankly) an uninterested News24, that he’s making a new series of Thunderbirds. LINK
UPDATE – 15.1.11
Heard on Radio 4 this morning that the new Thunderbirds WILL be CGI. Which I’m not happy about.
