Thunderbirds Are Go - Low Cost!

So it's the holidays, son is dying for the new Tracy Island to hit toy shops. I was commissioned / cajoled into putting this together. God help me when he demands the Thunderbird 2 equivalent!

Re: Dai X Jaeger

Hm. That looks vaguely familiar? Looks a bit like Transformers Beast Wars, the girl is straight out of, well, every anime ever! Reminding me of Astroboy a touch too, quite old school?

Re: Dai X Jaeger

I love the way you seemingly casually throw out these designs in two seconds flat! I used to have a monochrome hand scanner for God's sake! I must admit to only having seen clips of Pacific Rim, haven't played catch up with it yet, but I imagine that as all the beasties were rampaging in densely pop...

Re: Dai X Jaeger

In fact, that's reminded me of how Iron Man suits up. You could see the three of them heading for the Dai X components while getting suited up into mini-Dai X armours. Bit Power Rangers then I suppose, but I think you could make their suits more realistic, give them HUDs on the helmet like Iron Man,...

Re: Dai X Jaeger

I think the helmet's not unlike the new helmets the modern Thunderbirds use, lots of visibility and it makes absolute sense to be wearing some form of environmental suit when involved in space combat / hostile environments. One slight snag - I think Shiro is a bit like Judge Dredd. I don't think he ...

Re: Die cast Dai x query

Wow, that shop's still going. It's been a link from SFXB for years and years now although the link itself has clearly gone a little out of date. It does look impressive, it's always had a massive range of the really old X Bomber / Bomber X merchandise on the site. I'm sure Shane could have informed ...

Re: Thunderbirds are...

So my son likes this Thunderbirds series. He also likes other original era Anderson shows, and a new kids show called Octonauts. I said to him that Octonauts was a bit like Thunderbirds, they do rescue missions, they have vehicles, they have a base... He looked at me with a big grin on his face, I l...

Re: Terrahawks Spacehawk model build

Awesome work. I remember having some really, really poor plastic toy of Spacehawk. Of course, doing one to the scale of all the other toys available at the time would have been a little tricky! Now, if only someone could reproduce X-Bomber in such a fashion... hey... hang on...! Hint, hint!

Re: Minecraft X-Bomber build team.

I've never played Minecraft in anger, but am inevitably aware of it and await the day when my son gets into it. However, I have seen videos he's found of people who have done the likes of Tracy Island with all the Thunderbirds where you would expect to find them. What I've never found, somewhat to m...

Re: Thunderbirds are...

I smiled quietly when I saw this thread had appeared - I thought it probably would! I sat down with my six year old to watch the first episode and I have to admit I was bracing myself for the Max Steel style treatment, but it is incredibly respectfully done for those of us old enough to have seen th...
