      Having received my order two days ago I've finally got around to playing the three 7" mini album records. Still cannot believe the audio for the three new episodes were sourced from original 1960's vinyl records.
      The reproduction of the cover art work and the record labels are excellent, only the flipback on the rear of the covers is missing. Otherwise you'd think they were mint copies of the original releases.
      Congratulations again on the fantastic new episodes and delivering first class merchandise.

      Just adding my voice to the chorus of congratulation - you have definitely won a place in the (specialist) history books! Thank you for all the trouble you took to get things just right…

      Open my package and all are there as pledged.
      The DVD & Blu-ray are standard. I will watch it later tonight.
      Love the CD and the 7" 33rpm vinyl. Will play the vinyl once I've set up my new record player.
      All three scripts are signed and I'll treasure them always.
      Will try to find a frame to house the postcard sized portraits in a row.
      The five lobby cards are the ones slightly damage where the corners are a bit bent due to the transit handling.
      Was impressed with the two booklets which have lots of history about Thunderbirds productions.

      Thanks to Stephan and his team to produce the audio-only episodes into the TV cult series format.

      Hi from Quebec City, Canada!

      Received my package on Friday afternoon, and found it home when I came back from work! Just finished watching the three episodes and they were FAB-U-LOUS!
      Will watch the extras over the week-end, but at the moment, I'm too tired as it's way past my bedtime. I had to write these lines first.
      All my congratulations to Stephen and everyone on the team. You made a most wonderful job into bringing this to life. I must add my voice to all others: it's near impossible to see the difference between old and you!
      Thank you, thank you and thank you again for making this one of the most fabulous gift one could make to Thunderbirds fans!
      And oh... if you do another Anderson project, count me in for the ride!

      Just collected from the post office when the postman fail to deliver them at my place two days ago. Was a bit disappointed that the package was been rough out during the transit. Will post again on the contents inside when I reach home later.

      My package arrived yesterday and I watched the episodes last night - it was well worth the wait. I was particularly impressed with the way that the new material fit seamlessly with the original stock footage, showing how much effort was put into recreating the show. Well done to everyone and thank you.

    7. Pearl Tryntje Rapalje

      Got everything and am seriously impressed with how slick a production! Thanx so much for making this a reality!!!!!

    8. Helen Hertzog on

      Thank you my dvd arrived the case was cracked but it seems the dvd survived FAB. love it love it love it

    9. Lou Prosperi on

      My items arrived yesterday (near Boston, MA).

      My items included the DVD, Photo Album, and "Making of" book. I haven't had a chance to watch the episodes yet (waiting to watch them with my son), but I flipped through both books and they're gorgeous!

      Well worth the investment and the wait!


    10. Leonard Medlock on

      Just received mine--NH resident. Looking forward to watching these this evening. Again, congratulations on a successful campaign.

      Tick off another order received in Melbourne, Australia.
      The whole family sat down tonight and watched all three episodes - a remarkable result by all those involved in the production.
      To Stephen, Justin and the whole team, a big thank you. You have set the benchmark on how a successful Kickstarter project is run. The three 'new' episodes are beyond belief.
      Being an audiophile geek I am especially in awe of the sound restoration done by Mark Ayres. Without these soundtracks there would not have been these wonderful episodes to enjoy.

    12. Jay R. Eneberg on

      My bluray copy turned up in the mail today; June 9th 2016.
      I'll be sitting down to watch it tonight. I had a quick look and it looks fantastic!
      Excellent job everyone!

      Hi Stephen,
      I received your package.
      Your project has resulted in the most amazing experience and rewards in my Kickstarter experience.
      Thank you!

    15. James on

      DVD and other bits arrived tonight and have just finished watching the first 2 episodes with my 3 kids - what an absolute piece of art! A massive well done to Stephen and the team, this has been by FAR the best kickstarter campaign I have ever backed in terms of delivering above expectations, providing a top quality product and providing exceptional communication throughout! Thanks so much!

    16. Peter L Brown

      After receiving my DVD and Photo Album, I think I might be considering on purchasing that script you mentioned might be available separately. Could you post a link to where I can do so, please? Can't wait to pop that DVD in and what the new episodes. Thanks again!

    17. Andrew Hsieh on

      I am FABulously astonished by all the episodes - from the (original) audios to the visuals! Well done guys, and FAB!! :D

    18. Stephen La Rivière Creator on

      Hello David,

      We're afraid that you only ordered a storyboard. If you wish to discuss your order, drop us a line on the private messaging system here :)

      The same goes for other backers too please. If you wish to discuss your order, please send us a message privately. Though please don't send any messages about where your package is. We get deluged with these and it only slows stuff down. Rest assured, everyone will get the appropriate reward for their level in time.

      Hi guys,
      Am I having a blond moment? Just received my storyboard and I assumed that the DVD would be included? Have I even pledged enough to get one? I'm happy to buy a copy if not please let me know.

    25. Stephen La Rivière Creator on

      Hi Craig,

      We've fulfilled the items you've ordered. The customs label is simply in error.

      Best wishes,

Personal I wish you guys would come up with a new series becuase this art-form you guys got down pat. Are there any other recording of any other of the Andersons shows? Cause I here to throw money at the screen to get anything made! :)

      Will Davies on

      Thought I'd let you know I finally received my package last Friday, and got round to watching the Bluray this evening.

      I just want to say well done for all the hard work you've put into this project! Having grown up during the 90s revival of the original series, I think you did a good job adapting audio-only stories into authentic episodes.

      As a fan of practical effects, I hope the skills you've learnt in this production will lead to bigger exciting projects in the future!!

      Hi everyone. I found one Easter egg on the blu-ray disc! How many are there?

      Today, my kids watched some of the special features and suddenly were "wow! Daddy, why is your name written there?" Thank you. I don't remember it was planned. What a nice surprise!

    34. Humphrey Bradley on

      Stephen, received my pack yesterday & sat down to watch it this morning. It look me back 40 years! What a fantastic piece of work! You have over-delivered on your promises & have produced something I know Gerry & Sylvia would be proud of. Congratulations to you & all the crew who helped in making this project a reality.

      I mean the two episodes Abominable Snowman and Stately Homes Robberies. I can work out where the prequel fits in the timeline :o)

    40. GoonerWA on

      If watching the original TB series where would the new episodes fit in the order/timeline? Has this been stated anywhere or has anyone worked it out?

      Hi Jeroen - we did say at the outset that certain items might end up being split for various reasons. Please don't panic :)

    45. Jeroen Iking on

      I received my items as well...but only half since I paid for 2x the same items.
      I just left a message for Stephan, so I hope he or someone else will reply ASAP.

      Still: The so far received items look great !!!!

      Munich, Germany speaking. Yesterday the DVD and the photo book arrived in perfect state. Another happy backer enjoying the new episodes soon. But first I will rewatch all the original episodes :-)

      Hi Stephen and Justin and all. Blu-ray Disc and everything arrived yesterday (Monday the 30th of May) here in France.

      Kind regards from France.

      I received my DVD on Friday 27th. I have now watched it and have thoroughly enjoyed the trip back in time. (Or forward!) The two magazines are also absolutely wonderful.
      My heartfelt thanks to everyone involved in this Kickstarter campaign.
      Thank you.
