      Hi well done, it was great watching the puppets come back to life, what do you have left to sell?
      If you have any more copies of the films, I will buy them, from

      Like many others have said, thank you Stephen and crew for your dedication in producing these three mini episodes to the original standards of the originals. You have indeed done a terrific job and I am pleased and proud to have played an albeit small part in it.

      Just wanted to say thanks again to Stephen and his production crew for their magnificent achievement. Three wonderful episodes and a range of beautifully produced merchandise which I will always treasure, topped with a fabulous trip to the studio. With my mother being ill with dementia and the problems which that entails, plus a serious car crash 18 months ago and a challenging job, projects like Thunderbirds 65 have played a very large part in giving me a boost and helping me along this difficult path. Many of us still have the Firestorm pilot to look forward to and several people from Thunderbirds 65 are involved with that. I also have a financial finger in The Last Station and Cartoon Carnival as well as being a Gemini Force backer. Once again Thanks for everything and we all wish you every success with future projects.

      Thank you so much for all the hard work. It was definitely worth the wait. Take a well earned rest now.

      Hi There , I still don't have my DVD and I am in London. I also sent a message via Kickstarter on the 15th but haven't received a reply. Could you please confirm mine has been dispatched as it seems to have been missed.

      Rewards arrived in Adelaide, Australia last week. Customs, somewhere along the line, damaged the books ever so slightly but the Blu-ray is fine which is the main thing. It is an impressive piece of work and it is impossible to watch the episodes without smiling the entire time :)

      My rewards arrived a couple of weeks ago & I have enjoyed every minute of the new episodes.

      Well done to everyone involved! I think Gerry would have been proud of what you achieved for the 50th.

      Hope you do something similar for Captain Scarlet next year.

      Hi guys. I'm visiting London from australia in August and would love to say thanks. Can I buy you a drink or something?

    11. Steve Herbert on June 14, 2016

      The rest of my rewards came yesterday the Bakerkit stuff or whatever it's called? Absolutely hugely impressed the Vynal, the booklet and the Lobby Cards are all awesome. Plus my DVD. Stunning. Many thanks �

      I'm starting to get concerned. My pledge was collected. I completed that Backerkit survey as requested and have been waiting patiently for my DVD. Something seems to have gone wrong, as somebody who has already received his discs has just told me that my name is not included in the special thanks section as I was informed that it would be. I hope that this is just an admin oversight and that my disc is actually on its way.

    20. Patrick Sklenar on June 11, 2016

      Received in the USA yesterday. Watch, including all extras, today. *LOVE* it!! Thank you so very much for returning part of my youth!!

      I got my shipment a few days ago and it's FAB! I've only watched "The Abominable Snowman" so far, but you all did a fantastic job putting these episodes together! Thanks to everyone involved.

      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.

      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.

      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!

      FAB!

      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.

    37. Jay R. Eneberg on June 9, 2016

      My bluray copy turned up in the mail today; June 9th 2016.

      Thank you!

      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!

      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!

      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.
