ITV Studios Global Entertainment came to Brand Licensing Europe at Olympia, London, this week to show off their latest Thunderbirds Are Go and classic Thunderbirds merchandise.
Some items were familiar to all of us, such as Vivid Imagination’s amazing toys, but… a Meccano Thunderbird 2, anyone?! Also on display were a range of new collections, including wheeled and outdoor (skateboards and bikes), nightwear and domestic (pyjamas, duvets, cushions and bean bags) and books (Thunderbirds guide and annual), plus Thunderbird 2 and 4-shaped rucksacks. We also heard whispers that ‘hero’ toys of FAB 1 and Thunderbird Shadow will be released in 2016 as marketing gears up for the second series of 26 episodes.
Finally, it was revealed that ITVS GE will be partnering with Minclip to develop and distribute a free-to-play Thunderbirds Are Go mobile game for iOS and Android platform early next year.
