Lego Thunderbird 2? Just 300 More Supporters Needed!

Lego Ideas was set up so that budding Lego set designers could see their design made into sets that we could all buy.

Lego fans can click to support the designs they like and, if a project gets over 10,000 supporters, it goes on to be assessed by the Lego team as a potential set.

Since Lego Ideas was set up in 2010 (as Lego Cuusoo), 26 sets have been produced on a wide range of topics. Andrew Clark has been luckier than most budding designers, as his Doctor Who and The Flintstones sets were both chosen to become reality.

Andrew’s latest idea is this Thunderbird 2 set, and it needs just 300 more supporters to reach its goal. Now, at first glance some Fanderson members might be put off as it appears the design is of TB2 from the new Thunderbirds Are Go series, but click on the updates tab to see that there’s actually a classic TB2 design from the original Thunderbirds series in the submission too!

You can read more about this Ideas set at Brickset and why not take a look at some of the other Anderson designs whilst you’re on the Lego Ideas site.

Thunderbirds Are Go returns to CITV this Saturday

Thunderbirds Are Go returns to CITV (with an HD simulcast on ITV) this Saturday, 18th May, with the episode Deep Water.

The Supreme Barrier Reef has turned acidic and its creators are forced to abandon ship! Gordon responds to the emergency in Thunderbird 4 and attempts to discover the cause of the acidity in the water.

Welcome to our new website

Our new website has all the features of the old one (plus a few new ones!) but you should find it much easier to use, whether you’re on a computer, tablet or your mobile.

We’ve got a brand-new shop where, once you’ve set up your account, you won’t have to enter your details every time you want to order anything.

The first time you go to buy anything from us you’ll be prompted to set up your account by including something from the “membership” category. If you’re joining the club for the first time, or renewing your membership, just pick the option for wherever in the world you live.

If you’re an existing paid up member, or if you’re buying a Supercelebration Non-Member place, pick the “Current Membership” option.

You may notice that there’s no longer a link to the Fanderson Forum. The site had some technical issues back in April which, unfortunately, look to be unsurmountable for the foreseeable future. We’ll let you know if we’re able to reinstate the Forum but, in the meantime, why not join in the conversation on our Facebook page.
