Turns out that there are several different Year Set offers, not just one. The details are rather sketchy (no pun intended)

Appears to be 4 different new preview sets, each limited to 150

Also, if you order the Deluxe deal there is an exclusive Saint autograph which won't be available anywhere else

If I am reading this correctly, if you buy the regular Year Set for about $ 125, you get the 4 new Preview sets for Terminator, The Saint, Prisoner and Space 1999

But to get the Thunderbirds 2 preview set, you have to buy the Deluxe Year Set, which is close to $ 200. Frown

The Deluxe Set also has a brand new UFO preview set limited to 100.

So the UFO and the Thunderbirds are limited to the higher end set

The other 4 new preview sets are in the basic Yearset

The Deluxe Set sold out last night. Only regular ones still left 'In Stock' now.

Someone told me that he opened his year set, and that in addition to the 6 preview sets mentioned above, there were also two other new 4 card promo sets for UFO and Thunderbirds included.

They are black and white "proof" versions of the 2 new, regular preview sets. Not sure how rare they are

The four card UFO and Thunderbirds previews come with the Premium Factory sets.
So it looks like another set for UFO next year despite assurances that ser one was a one off.

Also, all the 'Proofsets' are meant to be limited to 1 of 20. According to the stickers. That includes the ones for the new preview sets (got one for the T2 four card year set set in my premium pack).

Presumably yes. I got the T2 in my Premium pack and there are B/W proof/test sets, not round edged however, for Thunderbirds and UFO up on the Bay already.
Strangely the contrast on the b/w T2 set is much better than on actual set and shows far more detail.

Looking around, I see PROOF versions of The Saint, Space 1999, and Prisoner preview sets, as well
