The End and Beyond - Part 8

2017 began with the promise of an incredibly exciting year for MSTies. Foremost, for the first time since 1999 new episodes would be seen by fans. There were also rumblings that there would be some other new MST related merchandise on its way. Eighteen years after the last new episode appeared on the Sci-Fi Channel, MST3K seemed to be continuing to gain momentum and fans. (I just like the moonrise picture below that came out about this time too. I’m not sure who created it, but if they want to contact me I will be happy to give them credit.)

 

At the London Toy Fair (UK) there was an announcement that Funko Pop figures of Tom and Crow would be released later this year. (More on this later.)

There was a little bit of a furor caused on 1/28 when we received a message of Joel reminding us that when he sends out messages “for backers only” we should not be posting them online for the world to see. In this case he had let us know some information about some upcoming red-carpet premiere events of the first episode of the new MST season 11. After this MSTies were much better and following directions and allowed backers to enjoy some perks for contributing and supporting the rebirth of the show.

On 1/30/17 Felicia game birth to a daughter. We had just learned of her pending delivery a few weeks earlier when she tweeted a picture to her fans. Soon after the birth we heard from her again, ”Oh yeah Calliope Maeve has hit the world. Currently wearing a onesie that says ‘Bard in Training’." (Felicia Tweeted the following picture on 1/3/17 letting us know that she was expecting.)

The re-release of MST3K DVD set IV was seen on 1/31. The episodes included Space Mutiny (820), Overdrawn at the Memory Bank (822), Girl in Gold Boots (1002) and Hamlet (1009). The only extras were vintage intros by Mike Nelson.
