    In short, apart from the DVD, is there going to be any?

    I would dearly love a die-cast Carbug.
    p2p did a mock up ‘Fritter the Critter’ T-shirt the other day http://www.ganymede.tv/atspeed/2009/04/the-berkeley-spoiler-hunt#comment-148762 and a friend commented today that they should have a Carbug Haynes manual (or at least a T shirt in the style of a Haynes manual).

    What else would you like to see?

    Here’s the shirt again for anyone who missed it:

    A die cast Carbug would be great!

    It’s unlikely, but I’d love a companion CD with the music. A Rimmer’s ‘H’ through the years display, perhaps?

    I too would love a model Carbug. Hell, I’d be interested to see if they can do a new-look model Dwarf.

    My dad had a chat with staff at Forbidden Plannet yesterday. They said they expect alot of Red Dwarf merchandising to come in within the next few months, but the staff will have it before the store will. Ha. Kewl though.

    From someone who’d been collecting merchandise for the last 15 years, I think this is a perfect opportunity to get some really great stuff out there!

    An original shaped Red Dwarf ship, in a descent scale!
    Whatever you say about action figures, every other show has them! And they do sell very well. I really want a dimension jumping squid right now!
    Carbug of course! Released with DVD boxset.
    Bit Crap car stickers!

    I have a list…

    I’d love action figures if they actually looked like the characters they were supposed to be, but they never do. Rarely, anyway.
    A squid, yes. Can I have a plush one?
    ‘Bit Crap’ would make a great rubber stamp, in the style of these http://www.wishingfish.com/abusivestamps.html

    Ah, man! I almost said a foam Kryten mask when asked earlier, and there was one in the comic shop. Oh, well. Still want one. :-)

    >An original shaped Red Dwarf ship, in a descent scale!

    Great idea. Like a replica of Hollister’s ‘paper weight’ from The End complete with glass dome?

    …Or what about my very own, personal Gaspazcho Soup bowl?

    No point. There would be no Norman Lovett action figure and without that, the entire merchandising process would be pointless.

    Actually, Hattie and I once briefly discussed Holly merchandise. We eventually settled on ‘Holly Lollies’.

    I’d think a ball would be ideal being just a head and all. (Or not all, in his case.)

    I think the Carbug toy was a kinda special effect and not an ACTUAL small model of the car. Can anyone who’s watched it again confirm?

    DEFINATLEY should release action figures, and the new sleeping quarters set to put them in. THAT would be nice!

    How about a radio-controlled skutter? Doctor Who has done all this! Give Character a call GNP!

    ARRRGH TOO MUCH PRODUCT PLACEMENT IT’S ALMOST AS BAD AS IN THE LAST TWO BOND MOVIES

    …is how some people might react. Not me though!

    It looked to me like a real Smart Car model with green paint on it.

    To me, its not product placement… because lets face it, these episodes are for fans… and the fans own all this shit anyway! So its totally fine with me!

    I saw the Starbug playset onscreen, and felt a warm glow as I looked up to the shelf where mine sits.

    I think Mr Flibble should have been there, you know, give him another appearance, then I can look down at Mr Flibble I have next to me and smile. Well atleast I can look to my “favourite DVD shelf” and see loads of stuff that apears in the episode, specifically Series III DVD.

    I think I should have been there too. I could have stood behind the counter and smiled.

    Mr Flibble is in the bottom right corner of the window, as they walk in.

    Hurray, Mr Flibble has now appeared in two episodes of Red Dwarf.

    Warning: the following post is rated R for horrific images:

    Unless it’s Norman.

    Just noticed this. In the picture on the right, there is a new Kryten action figure! It’s not the Sevans model, and I don’t think I’ve seen it before.

    On the left pic is that rather fantastic Kryten mask for anyone who missed it, and also in the right one is, I believe a Japanese fan next to the SFX mag.

    There’s pretty much nothing in that shop that isn’t from the GNP cupboard, The figure was, I think, someone’s pitched concept that never happened.
