Remco Lost in Space Helmet and Gun Set

21st May 2010

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.

Land of the Giants Remco Shoot ‘N Stick Target Rifle

19th May 2010

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.

Update on Night the Bridge Fell Down DVD

16th May 2010

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.

Poseidon Adventure CD already sold out!

6th May 2010

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.
