    New poster for the special was published on Twitter.

    It looks great! Even Rimmer in his superhero costume looks fine (definitely better than in the picture posted on Friday). Holly looks so much better than in Skipper. We can also finally officially say that Kryten will be rusty... And what the hell happened to Starbug?!

    Thanks Smurf. Clearly Starbug (this one anyway) comes a cropper, you could see that in the teaser. Do the AA do welding?

    Absolutely. So did the teaser. But hopefully it will be more Red Dwarf than Star Wars.

    Love the poster. Very reminiscent of recent sci-Fi/fantasy movie posters like Star Wars and Aladdin.

    Good poster. Yes, it's very Star Wars - I think it's a deliberate parody.

    Some people on Facebook were complaining about the poster saying it looked too serious. Think they missed the parody bit ...

    Good to see Norman on there. Hopefully he's going to play a big role in this special.

    I don't. He seems a nice enough person (sometimes anyway), but I don't want any kind of romantic relationship with Norman.

    I'm glad we got a poster, and I love the wide range of colors involved in it. Lister, Cat, and Kryten look very good on it alongside (presumably) Rodon, the main baddy.

    My issue with Rimmer isn't stemming from his outfit, but his posture. Its odd-looking how he's facing forward and is bent a little to the left, reminds me of the Japanese poster for A Fish Called Wanda where they took the sitting down with legs-crossed Michael Palin and just turned him to the right so it looked like he was leaning over a treasure chest with Jamie Lee Curtis inside (which, of course, isn't related to the movie but you know those wacky Japanese).
    Context: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0095159/mediaviewer/rm3860230400

    Holly looks like smeg, I'm sorry, but I'm not a fan of his bald look lol. I'm assuming this isn't *our* Holly and I'm actually going to side with some speculators on G&T that this Holly may actually be an evil one working for Rodon. Which honestly, sounds really cool and would make the all-bald look fit. If that isn't the case, he looks like the "just smeg my smeg up" guy in the context of the lovable Holly of yore.

    Nevertheless, awesome poster and I'm looking forward to the full trailer.

    I saw on Twitter that it's the first one.

    Unfortunately, I probably won't be able to purchase the magazine in my country, or to print the poster as everything is closed now, but it's already a wallpaper on all of my devices.
