    I would really like a Chloe Annett. Not that I thought much to her in dwarf, but I think she would be a good purchase.

    A full-scale bazookoid.

    She is actually very similar to my wife, think the luck virus must have helped me the day I met her, sadly she doesn't like dwarf though.

    I am still after one of those electronic starbug toys but a large scale red dwarf ship with opening sections with rooms etc in would be cool. A few more figures would be good to, like the holo ship crew, legion, inquisitor etc

    The psiren and gingham Rimmer head knockers...

    They were created but never released unfortunately.

    And yes, a bazookoid would be welcome, as well as more scale models including Blue Midget.

    I think a full scale bazookoid would cost a bomb though. Even the smaller mark 2 version.

    One thing I've always wondered about the bazookoid prop, is the reload 'click' added in post production or does the prop itself make that noise?

    I would love to have the Red Dwarf The Complete Collection the 19 disc region 4 released for region 1. Is that the best dvd set? if not what should I look out for?

    It would be great to see scale model kits. I'm aware that this has been brought up before and I'm the one initially who said that this just wouldn't happen because of the costs of producing the moulds especially for plastics (Although resin kits are a slightly more realistic possibility), but since we're wish-listing, why not?

    Could it be done via 3d printing

    I don't think with 3D printing it would be economically viable yet to produce something like a 1/72 Starbug kit, although as a smaller model like maybe a solid 1/300 miniature it might be viable if someone knows their way around the equipment, although I'd still expect it to be relatively pricey. The technology just isn't quite there yet, give it another 5 years or so and print on demand model kits via somewhere like Shapeways might be a possibility, but as it stands currently traditional metal or resin casting still seems to have the edge for smaller production runs or HIPS injection moulding for larger runs of plastic kits.

    I would love to see a two-foot-long screen-accurate Red Dwarf. And a life-size Skutter.

    I wonder if anyone else, when the crew talk about RD being five miles long, try to picture just how big a craft this make it.

    For me, it would be like the tail-end hovering above my flat in Audenshaw, with the tip of the nose scoop looking down on Manchester city centre.

    That's a big craft!

    No, perhaps you're right.

    -Proper action figures

    -Computer game (finally) - could even be a point and click style game, or an open world (exploring Red Dwarf) style game with missions etc!

    - a new novel!!

    - new range of t-shirts would be good

    When I mentioned about plastic model kits I did wonder just how big Red Dwarf would be in the most common scales or what scale it would have to be done in to be a reasonable size. Just to put it in perspective, in 1/700 which is a pretty common scale for ships, a Battleship or a liner like RMS Titanic would be around 40cm long, at the same scale Red Dwarf would be around 10 metres long, so to get a reasonably manageable kit it would need be done in about 1/15,000 scale.

    Hold on then, maybe Sim's the weird one?

    Does such a scale even exist, in the normal course of things?
