Hot on the heels of the launch of the second series of Thunderbirds Are Go, Vivid is gearing up for Christmas with a selection of new toys from the series.

Thunderbirds Are Go TB3 large

The eagerly anticipated Supersize Thunderbird 3 incudes a launch trigger countdown that releases real smoke from the rocket! At 48.5 cm tall, the toy also features rotating drill sounds and extendable grasping arms.

A new Thunderbird 5 toy comes with on-board vehicle and communication sound effects and a button that activates the rotating gravity winch when John’s assistance is needed!

The new TB2 Pod Set can create up to five different Pods, and comes with accessories that can be easily snapped on and off for different rescues.
