New Releases: Shout Factory continues its efforts to bring back out-of-print cult classics by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson. After a recent release of Captain Scarlet and Stingray, the company has been busy producing new complete DVD box sets for Fireball XL5, Supercar, and junior spy Joe 90In the case of Anderson's popular Thunderbirds series, featured in Shout's announcement today, both Blu-ray and DVD editions will be available! From the Thunderbirds press release: "Thunderbirds are GO! The SUPERMARIONATION cult television classic leaps into the stratosphere of fun and excitement with Thunderbirds: The Complete Series! Operating from a top-secret island base in the year 2065, the team at International Rescue- intrepid Jeff Tracy and his valiant sons Scott, John,Virgil, Gordon, and Adam- engage in a never-ending humanitarian crusade to protect the innocent. Traveling via land, sea, air, and space in their fantastically advanced vehicles, the Tracys take on the most impossible of missions with courage, honor…and their greatest strength of all: the power of family. The crown jewel of Gerry Anderson's visionary creative oeuvre, Thunderbirds promises audiences both young and young-at-heart an outstanding showcase of thrills, action, and adventure-with no strings attached (okay, maybe some strings.) Blast off with the team at International Rescue in 5…4…3…2…1..." If you have never explored these shows, you are in for a thrilling treat! Each of the Anderson creations were a high-concept cocktail, drawing conventions from spy movies, the space-race, 1960s Mod design, and science fiction. This is welcome news, especially as the original Anderson sets from A&E now command premium prices on the collector's market. Here are the complete street dates via Amazon for Shout's Gerry Anderson Collection sets: Joe 90 (April 14th), Captain Scarlet (Feb 10th), Stingray (Jan 13th), Fireball XL5 (March 10th), Supercar (May 12th), Thunderbirds DVD and Blu-ray (June 9th).
