Round 2, LLC, under its MPC brand and ITV Studios Global Entertainment are excited to announce a new deal to re-issue the vintage plastic model kits based on the Gerry and Sylvia Anderson produced television show, Space: 1999!
The Eagle-1 Transporter and The Alien Moon Buggy kits will each include a collectible mini print featuring key actors from the show. One hundred of these prints will be hand autographed by Nick Tate who played Captain Alan Carter and one hundred will also be autographed by Catherine Schell who played the shape changing alien, Maya, in the show. Nick Tate autographs will be randomly spread among the Eagle-1 kits and Catherine Schell autographs will be randomly inserted into The Alien kits.
Jamie Hood, brand manager for the MPC sci-fi line, said, “We are thrilled to have the actors behind these iconic characters involved in our Space:1999 reissues! Adding their autographs to these kits will surely thrill fans of the show around the world.”
Besides being featured on the mini prints, the actors will also be depicted on the packaging and in promotional materials for the kits.
The Space:1999 Eagle-1 kit is due for release in November 2013 and The Alien will be released in December 2013.
