Check Out The World Of Thunderbirds & The New Look Vehicles!

Thunderbirds are most definitely go and the folks at ITV and Weta have put together a rather cool series of videos not only showing off the world of the Tracy family but also the different vehicles themselves…

Thunderbird 1

If you check out the Youtube Channel HERE you’ll see a whole bunch of rather neat snippets showing off Hood talking as he analyses each of the different Tracy brothers and their vehicles. The new style is very much in keeping with the old designs but with a few tweaks here and there to make them look more modern.

This image also pops up as Hood is talking about the different members of Thunderbirds and we have a surprise addition at the end there. Could it be Tin-Tin or maybe even the new Lady Penelope?

As you can see in the video above they’ve also put a lot of effort into the design of the landscapes which aren’t going to be fully CGI and instead a mixture of both it seems. I know a lot of people have got rather annoyed at the new look of the Tracys themselves but I think it will be fun to maybe just watch the first episode if nothing else and see how it turns out!

It will be interesting to see how much of this filters into both the role-playing game from Modiphius and the board game too.

What do you think?
