DVDs! Calendar! Propstore!
Blah. Lots of stuff happening behind-the-scenes. Not a huge amount happening here. Hopefully we’ll have something we can announce soon.
JUST THE SHOWS VOL 2: Artwork! Lovely – far nicer than the first boxset. Nice to see that Series VII and VIII aren’t squashed onto one disc each like the Czech release of VII, and instead are given two discs each.
I’ll reiterate what I said
R1 BOXSET: Region 1 didn’t get a Just The Shows release at all; instead, there has been a full boxset announced instead, due on September 5th – for the cool, crisp RRP of $249.92. (There’s no plans for a Region 2 release.)
Predictably, this has annoyed a few people; see this ATVRD post. This has prompted a discussion on the Webboard. Personally, I’ve never really been a collector; I’m more interested in other pointless Red Dwarf-related activities. So I don’t really care about any box. On the other hand, I can see why it would annoy people who had supported the releases from the beginning. I think the Region 2 releases dealt with the problem in the best way possible.
2007 CALENDAR: Hooray! Some interesting news that involves nothing more than me cutting and pasting a post by Andrew on the the Webboard:
“This is an advance warning that there WILL be a Red Dwarf ?calendar for next year. So if you were looking at that ?movie/comedy/nudie calendar 2007 – WAIT!
The RD calendar will be announced on the site when we ?have more details and art. Launch is likely sometime in ?September.
Why say this now? Because I’m in the middle of mocking ?up concept art and…well, we’ve got a killer concept. If ?things go to plan (we have one hurdle to jump first), this ?will show you Dwarf as you’ve never seen it before. This is ?NOT the same old smeg.
No exaggeration – it’s gonna be killer. Can’t wait to post ?the first images on the site – you WILL burst.”
Excellent. The last calendar was well worth getting – if this one is even more exciting, it has to be a must-have…
Oh, and in a bit of non-merchandising news, Ghostie has set up the domain for the new Channel 27 news – just enter your email and he’ll tell you when the site launches. Which reminds me – when’s Danny’s site coming?
Right. Back to work…
