Bill Hedges has created an amazing basement replica of the Jupiter 2 interior and you can read about the props and sets he has built in the feature article in the IANN Lost in Space showcase.

Another hard to find Lost in Space collectible is the Lost in Space 3D Action Fun Game from Remco produced in 1966. The 3D game is built up from layered card and supports with a spinner dial, and includes 4 space men in red, blue, yellow and white.
The Remco Lost in Space Helmet and Signal Ray Gun Set is one of the rarer Lost in Space Collectibles to find. It was comprised of a blue plastic children’s helmet plus a silver and red plastic “signal ray gun” toy.
Visit the Land of the Giants collectibles section to compare the ray gun with the Land of the Giants Signal-Ray Space Gun toy.
One of the harder to find Land of the Giants collectibles is the Remco Shoot ‘N Stick Target Rifle. As with many Irwin Allen collectibles produced in the 1960’s, this Remco toy isn’t related to any particular prop in the show itself, but the box and labeling does make it a worthwhile collectible in any Land of the Giants collection.
We have learned that Warner Bros may remove the Night the Bridge Fell Down DVD from its catalogue due to the manufacturing fault mentioned recently. The item is no longer mentioned on the Warner Bros Store website, nor is the Irwin Allen value pack.
If you have a faulty copy of the DVD, you should contact the company you bought the DVD from and request a refund. If you bought the DVD directly from Warner Bros, we have heard from fans that their customer services department has been very helpful.
It is a great shame that there has been a problem with this particular DVD as the recent DVDs released by Warner Bros have been otherwise excellent.
Further update on 18 May 2010: The DVD has reappeared in the Warner Bros Store but there is no information about whether there is going to be a re-mastered version of the DVD where the second disk doesn’t freeze.
Cave In! is to be aired in the UK for first time in over 20 years on CBS Action (Sky channel 148) on Saturday 15th May at 2pm and 6pm. It will also be repeated on 30th May, 12th June and 26th June (again at 2pm and 6pm on all of those dates).
We have noticed today that the limited edition (3000 copies) Poseidon Adventure CD is already sold out at La-La Land Records. A lot of them have probably been bought up by dealers planning to resell them on, so you may still find them available elsewhere. Worth comparing prices though as we’ve seen some being sold for over 3 times the original price.
