Red Dwarf Season 12 (2017)

It wasn't even a month ago that I blogged about what appears to be the reusing of the Doppelganger / UFO helmets in a forthcoming episode of Electric Dreams, as seen in the season trailer.  A helmet that hasn't been seen for decades

And now today I'm pointed toward the new season twelve Red Dwarf trailer because something almost as old and equally interesting has been spotted there within.
Yes; Not one but two Space 1999 helmets!  Where have these been for all these years and how cool is it that they have come out of retirement to continues in their career in genre TV.
Thanks again Mr De Prave, you've a keen eye for a classic

5th Passanger (In progress)

5th Passenger is an independent science fiction film funded through Kickstarter. It's about 5 people in an escape pod after their space ship blows up...but the catch is the pod is only built for 4 people!  It's a life boat in space with a deadly alien twist kind of a thing

The Kickstarter page can be found at and follow on twitter

Space Conqueror (1960's)

Not all toy robots are robots!  Some are spacemen

Lovely box art.

Lego - Build the Future advert (2017)

Lego's Build the Future print campaign, as designed by Ogilvy Thailand, is very cool, visually striking and probably inspirational to boot.  As such, I'll show you the two none Spaceman images as well because I'm kind like that.

The Man from U.N.C.L.E. - The Take Me to Your Leader Affair (1966)

The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Season 3 Episode 16.

It's bit of a silly story about world dominion via a faked UFO

Probably better remembered for Nancy Sinatra that any would be aliens in spacesuits.  Be honest, which of these images is going to stick in your mind?

Your Welcome!


Star Trek Discovery (2017)
