Feb 25 can't come soon enough.
Although I'd really like to know who signed for the set and if there'll be a chance at McGoohan's auto, even if it's a cut-auto.
I'm still amazed that they had Bowie's signature for The Man Who Fell To Earth.

Went for the Anderson multi box deal. Nothing startling in breakdown. However one anomaly was the Scarlet 50 box I received. The sticker on it was labelled.

"Box 501 of 499"!!!!!!!!!

Pre-orders for Persuaders, delayed once again.

Wonder if it will still come out in June ?

I personally don’t think delays are a problem if it makes for a good set. In the past they got blasted for rushing sets out and inserting redemption cards just so they released it on time. There are a lot of signers who turn their cards around quickly but I’ve known some sit on their cards for weeks. In these cult sets a lot of signers are very old and won’t be rushed no matter how much they’re pestered. I think it’s better that they take their time and get it right, especially as it’s the last set that Roger Moore signed for.

Unstoppable says that 1,250 boxes will be made on Prisoner.

300 sketches.

20 plus autos and cut autos to collect.

That's a much lower insertion rate on sketches than I was expecting. I was disappointed to miss out on the pre-sale as I was away from home but now not so unhappy.

So roughly 1 sketch per 4 boxes ?

What has it been in the past with other Unstoppable sets ?

The last two I opened were Terminator 2 which was a sketch in every box and Best of British Horror which had six or seven sketches per ten box case.

Main reason I was surprised was that I had a pre-sale e-mail in February while I was away that said sketches would be at least one in every two boxes.

Update : Just had a look on their Facebook page and they announced yesterday a " premium only sketches policy " which I assume is why there are less sketches than originally advertised.

Like all art it is very subjective. One person may feel a sketch is premium quality but another may feel it is not and may not even like it.

What was their last sketch policy called? "No talent, no problem." Big Grin

Reminds me of when it says "new and improved". I always wonder what I was buying before. Wink

Or "under new management"

Is that a concession that the store or restaurant had problems before ?

I was just perusing Ebay and noticed that there are several new Unstoppable auto cards from UFO and Space 1999.

There are two new Wanda Ventham auto cards and one Catherine Schell/Maya peering from behind a rock formation. Would love to have an auto card of Schell as the Guardian of Piri.

Does anyone have any info on this?

There are alot of mysterious new Unstoppable items that seem to be surfacing on ebay. I guess these are cards being sent to dealers as incentives

I see a brand new, 2018 Thunderbirds 4 card stamp set. They seem to be selling in the $150 range

Also, as mentioned down in the Promo section, three 6 card "preview" sets on T-Birds, UFO and Space 1999, new for 2018. Totally different from what came out last year. Each set numbered to 100.

These are from a recent Yearset pack. Contained 3x6card promo sets (Thunderbirds, UFO and Space 1999), two past autograph cards, one past sketch card, one new stamp card, one Maya CS3 autocard, one Wanda UFO autocard (two different designs) and one of either:
Jane Merrow Saint autocard or
Aimi McDonald Saint autocard or
Angela Douglas Avengers autocard.

Plus two archive boxes from past 2017 releases.

I have one pack unopened, if anyone is interested. PM me for details. Happy to sell or trade. Bought for someone else that let me down.

Yep, mine are currently winging their way through our less than perfect postal system.
