They've got some images on the website but the only I know is Roger Moore. I can't read the names of the other 3 shown.

From their Facebook page, I think Derren Nesbitt and Margaret Nolan have been mentioned, perhaps Catherine Schell too if I remember correctly.

Suzanna Leigh and Gary Raymond as well as Margaret Nolan feature in publicity shots on Facebook alongside the TWO Roger Moore cards that have been done. There's been quite a continuing delay on this one!

Someone told me that they heard that Persuaders is delayed, and that Space 1999 is actually coming out first, in June

No updates on any new cards coming in June or July. Nothing on the website about pre-orders

Last update was regarding The Prisoner, which came out about a month ago

Anyone hear anything about when the Prisoner binders will ship ?

Binders should be out next week with a facsimile auto

My Prisoner binder arrived today! Smile

Yeah got mine too. So the "three card set centring on McGoohan" is now reduced to a single solitary white on black facsimile card? Got some web promos but they were advertised otherwise included anyway.

Space 1999 set in July apparently.

I have seen "you know where" an unreleased version of the Prisoner promo WEB1

The regular black and white WEB1 is totally different, in terms of the photo

But back in Feb, Unstoppable advertised on their site that with each order of a Prisoner product directly from them, you'd get an assortment of WEB promos. The website showed a photo of the Prisoner WEB promo that you were supposed to get (which apparently no one did) and notably it was this "unreleased" one which has now surfaced

Just looked at Unstoppable's website

New Space 1999 box. Total cost with shipping to the USA, about $ 99. Seems like alot to me

All orders supposedly get 5 brand new WEB promos

Price of the box from the site is ~£60/$80.
Airmail post and packing ~$20, which seems about right to me if tracking/insurance is included.

The boxes seem twice as expensive as what I think they are worth considering the amount of 'supporting artists' autograph cards included in the product.

For some reason, I thought that it was cheaper last year when I bought The Saint and Terminator boxes

Maybe I am wrong

The exchange rate changes all the time, but the value of the GBP against the US dollar has risen ~10% over the last year.

I would have thought that the exchange rate was is your favour at the moment (welcome) to our problem buying US products. But the cost of a box has certainly risen in £.

Unstoppable has had 5 releases so far this year

Four Feathers, Secret Service, and Captain Scarlet back in Feb. Prisoner in May, Space 1999 in July

I believe they are still planning the next UFO, Thunderbirds, and Persuaders

Does anyone know which set is next, and what the timetable is for release, i.e. what months they are coming ?

Unfortunately, very often Unstoppable doesn't tell you these things until a few weeks before release, via Facebook announcement

Plus some form of 'yearset' that was scheduled at same time as 1999 but put back now until Autumn.
