https://www.kickstarter.com/project....rionatiI feel excited since the prospect of another Supermarionation series was something I thought would never happen.Gerry may be gone, but essentially it will still be his series, given that he wrote out the concept for the series back in the late 90's/early 2000's with his business partner John Needham.Those scripts got picked up in Japan and turned into the lackluster anime "FireStorm". Didn't do well in Japan, and not many know of it. In essence, it wasn't Anderson'sNow it's being redone with Gerry's original ideas in mind and done in "Ultramarionation", also featuring the voices of Nick Tate (Alan Carter in "Space: 1999") and Nicholas Briggs (the Daleks in "Doctor Who").I backed £23 to this, and am looking forward to the result. Today's the first day of the kickstarter funding and it's already made almost 50% of its goal.
