    Hi all.

    What are the chances of new Red Dwarf merchandise for Series XI and XII? Have any merchandise deals already been worked out? I remember I used to own the Starbug playset. Eventually it got damaged and thrown away. Obviously prices for it nowadays are outrageous, as all collectible items are. It would be great to see a similar type of product produced again. And the Corgi Red Dwarf and Starbug models look brilliant and I would love to own them.

    But the trouble with the merchandise released in the past is that they have since sold out and are rare and expensive. It would be great to see a whole new range of models and general merchandise released. I'm hoping with the revival of Red Dwarf for two new series that new merchandise will be released, but judging by the fact that it did not happen for Series X, I'm not holding out much hope.

    It's early days for any of that as yet, but I think we can all agree that it's something we'd like to see, if it can be made to happen!

    From the recordings I went to there's definitely potential for quote tshirts! Let's hope there's enough demand!

    I keeping hoping for new merchandise, I don't have any Red Dwarf merchandise since I've never seen any to pick up. Have merchandise for other shows that I really like :-)

    I don't really want t shirts, but i'd love something. Don't know what though. I have the Dwarf, Starbug and Skutter Corgi models. Anything else to add to those would be good. It always annoyed me that they did those little figures of Lister and Rimmer. Without Cat and Kryten they're about as much use as an Albanian state washing machine in a powercut.

    I heard rumours that Pop Vinyl figures had planned on doing the Red Dwarf cast, but, not seen anything yet.

    I agree that new Red Dwarf merchandise is as rare as Lister in 100% clean clothing, yet other shows that are new and don't have such a massive following get tons and tons of merch, GoT, Walking Dead, and many others, why leave us Dwarfers out in the cold, with no atmosphere and goldfish shoals nibbling at our poor little toes.

    I always wanted the jigsaw out of Thanks for the Memory.

    I know the original was up for sale/auction/whatever, but i wasn't paying silly money for a jigsaw. I've never seen a Dwarf jigsaw, bit weird that. Would cost peanuts to knock off a few hundred of those.

    A hardcover episode guide with loads of photos would be really cool. So long as it was around £20-£30 and not crazy money. Yeah that really would be smeggin awesome. Red Dwarf is perfect for something like that. Loads of iconic moments. The Star Trek 365, Ghostbusters visual guide, Back to the Future visual guide etc books are terrific. Why no Dwarf?? :evil:

    All the merchandise of absolute tat shows out there and us Dwarfers have smeg. :-(

    I'd like Character Options to make a range of 5" scale action figures.

    It would only need a set of 8 basic figures, Series 1 & 2 versions of Cat, Lister, Rimmer & Kryten along with generic Series 3 - 5 versions.

    Plenty of scope for cheap future repaints & variants if popular.

    Id really like some new RD tshirts (I always used to ask for them for birthdays and xmas so it would be a real nostalgia boost!). Id also quite like for that Red Dwarf Lego playset to come to fruition so I could hang it up in the office. Id settle for any new merch to be fair!

    Some new T-Shirts for me would be quite good....
    Failing that, A full size fully working Starbug equipped with a 'Holly hop drive' would do. :-)

    While it's good, that's not really the same thing, though - it's not an official book, and as such doesn't have photos and stuff. It's also not an episode guide! It's an encyclopaedia of concepts from within the show and spinoff material.
