      Status update: Package arrived today 11th July. Phew. All good. Thank you TB team.

    2. Styggron on

      I did indeed asked postage be delayed till Mid May. I receive parcels from UK all the time and they are usually quite quick. This is why I am getting worried. Ebay, amazon etc all very fast. I just posted a status update.

    3. Stephen La Rivière Creator on


      You asked for us to delay your parcel. It then left the queue. Once we'd established you wanted it sent, it re-entered the queue. You live in Australia - and post there can take some time.

    4. Styggron on

      Another status update. Nothing arrived yet. Now I am getting worried. :(

      This was a gift for my husband who grew up watching The Thunderbirds. It was heartwarming to watch how much he and my son truly enjoyed the new episodes. I sincerely hope this isn't the last episode we experience from the Thunderbird crew!

      For any order queries please send us private messages. It's impossible for us to respond here...

      Also bear in mind that postage was only completed about a week back. So if you live overseas it could be a bit of a wait. Saying that, we're now happy to confirm when items were sent :)

      I received the first half of a Total of 4 books and 2 blu-ray's on 31/05.
      It was "shipped" by airmail on 25/05.

      So I'm wondering when the second half was "shipped", because I'm worried it has fallen in wrong hands... :(

      So can anyone update us on when The last bunch of pledged items were send into the world?

      Hi guys. I understand the posting of all the DVDs etc.. was a momentous task.
      I am in Switzerland, and have not received my DVD yet. I am not worried, just wondering how long I should wait before getting concerned?

      Hi Team, received my blueray and vinyls in Singapore. Bravo and well done. One of the best projects ever! Brings back a lot of fond memories of the original series too. Let us know if you embark on anything new, great team indeed.

      I'd like to pass on thanks to Stephen et al from my sister, who just received a DVD from the post-KS webshop: she had the original vinyls as a wee lass and is overjoyed at seeing them as complete episodes.

    11. Styggron on

      Quick status update. Nothing arrived yet. Lets give it a little more time.

    12. Colin Kenworthy on

      Well done chaps!! By far the best run KS project I have backed. The regular feedback was most welcome and so unlike other projects. Best of luck in any of your future projects, whether crowdfunded or not. F.A.B.

      Even though I was a "Fireball XL5" viewer, having grown up in the U.S., it was fun watching the new episodes with my wife, who grew up in the U.K. Thanks for your hard work, and best wishes for success and happiness in all your future endeavors...after a well deserved rest!

      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.

    17. Mark River Lawrence on

      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?

    24. Steve Herbert on

      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.

    33. Patrick Sklenar on

      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.

      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…

    41. Beh Kok Seng

      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.


    42. Chris Bishop on

      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!


    43. Beh Kok Seng

      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.

    45. Pearl Tryntje Rapalje

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

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

    47. 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!

      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.
