Funko Pop Thunderbirds Vinyl FiguresBrand: Funko Pop
Product DetailsFive, four, three, two, one: Thunderbirds are go with the Funko Pop Thunderbirds line. The British sci-fi series has finally earned the vinyl treatment via the Pop! Television release.
Set in the 2060s, Thunderbirds chronicles the action surrounding International Rescue (IR), a secret organization tasked with protecting Earth by using the advanced Thunderbird space vehicles. The initial run of Funko Pop Thunderbirds offers a few characters from the puppet series. This includes Lady Penelope Creighton-Ward, the London agent for IR, dressed in a pink suit. Her butler and chauffeur, Aloysius "Nosey" Parker, stands at attention in his brown uniform, ready to serve. One of the top minds at IR, Brains supplies the science and inventing required for the group. He wears blue glasses and a tan suit.
Surprisingly absent (at least for now) are the members of the Tracy family. Jeff Tracy is the leader of IR and his five sons—Alan, Gordon, John, Scott and Virgil—pilot the main Thunderbird machines.
Although many new iterations have popped up over the decades, Thunderbirds debuted in 1965 as a two-season TV series created by Sylvia and Gerry Anderson. The distinct show used "Supermarionation," which was a new form of puppetry. A more modern comparison is the style used in Team America: World Police. As a result, you would likely remember it if you saw it.
