Fanderson has revealed two amazing collectables that will be auctioned for charity at TV21 this October.

Canadian actor and voice artist Shane Rimmer will be donating a signed copy of a script he penned for Joe 90, as well as a series of signed photos. Perhaps best remembered as the voice of Thunderbird 1 pilot Scott Tracy, Rimmer is one of TV21's headline guests and has had a long and varied association with Gerry Anderson shows.

Sculptor Terry Curtis, who was forced to withdraw from TV21 in June, will also be auctioning a unique cast of the original Captain Scarlet puppet head. After joining AP films in the 1960s Curtis worked on a host of productions, including the two Thunderbirds feature films, Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons and Joe 90.

Over the course of the weekend a number of other guests will be auctioning personal items to raise money for the convention's charity, Wallace and Gromit's Grand Appeal.

The charity provides fundraising for the Bristol Children's Hospital and St Michael's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (Special Care Baby Unit). A silent auction and raffle will also be taking place.

The guest list for Fanderson's TV21 convention in October continues to grow, with prolific artist and modelmaker Mike Trim now also confirmed. Trim is scheduled to attend both Saturday and Sunday and intends to take a table in the Dealers Room to sell his artwork.

Trim's association with Gerry Anderson began during the production of Stingray when he joined Derek Meddings' model shop at AP Films. He then became special effects designer on Thunderbirds and went on to work on every remaining Anderson puppet series. He also worked as designer on the live-action UFO, as well as all three of Gerry Anderson's sixties feature films (Thunderbirds Are Go, Thunderbird 6 and Doppelganger (a.k.a. Journey to the Far Side of the Sun)).

Trim now works as a conceptual designer and freelance illustrator for film and television. In 1978 he produced the iconic cover artwork for Jeff Wayne's Musical version of The War Of The Worlds - one of the best selling albums of all time. He also worked on Agent Crush, a recent puppet-based spy-spoof movie homage to some of his earlier work that has yet to be released. Examples of his artwork can be found on his website: www.miketrimart.com
