What a very strange situation...

Given how long ago the Supersize TB1 seemed to be pretty far along in the production process (the prototype more or less looked like a finished retail product) it'd be a shame if that was all scrapped after the work had been done designing and testing it.

How about a supersize (cardboard) Virgil! http://www.argos.co.uk/product/6776723
Argos has a few items at the moment, including these cardboard figures, some clearance toys, and some inflatables from the original TB - I just did a search http://www.argos.co.uk/search/thunderbirds/

Sorry, I should have made it clear. It's not in an episode, the Miniatures Stage Tour is at the studios in Wellington, New Zealand.

I met David during the visit and he didn't say it was one he'd made for the display. Then again, neither did he say it wasn't. Although everyone I met there was incredibly open and helpful, they were cagey about that Firefly model.

There has been an update on the TBAG Facebook & Twitter pages, along with Wikipedia (Listing two new episode titles).

It's sourced from VUE cinema's Thunderbirds day page - the page seems to have been taken down, sadly.

Keep up to date on the wiki - http://thunderbirds.wikia.com/wiki/Power_Play and http://thunderbirds.wikia.com/wiki/Volcano!

Check out Fanderson's news page - http://fanderson.org.uk/gerryanderso...s-anniversary/ - for when "we" (Not including those of us elsewhere in the world) can see not only two episodes of the new series of Thunderbirds Are Go, but a couple of Thunderbirds 1965!

I wonder why they've waited until the 52nd anniversary?

The info is slightly off on the Fanderson article. Its one of the Supermarionation remake jobs, with two of TAG-15, so three overall.
