The Countdown Is On!
Visitors to London’s Brand Licensing Europe exhibition today got their best look yet at Thunderbirds Are Go! as they were treated to tantalising glimpses of ITV Studios’ new series for 2015.
A 7 foot tall model Thunderbird 1 welcomed visitors, flanked by screens showing some of the amazing model work that’s been created for the new series by Weta Workshop in New Zealand. Posters tease us with the backs of the Tracy brothers, and an interactive “Thunderbird 5 Hub” hints at the interactive experiences that ITV are planning to support their new show. Viewers will be able to upload their own Thunderbird designs, play games, solve puzzles and much, much more in order to gain points which move them through the ranks of International Rescue. There will also be augmented reality displays in shops that give viewers in-depth information on the toy they (or their parents) are about to buy.
BLE runs at London’s Olympia Exhibition Centre until 9th October.
Produced specially for BLE, the black bag carries the series title along with the silhouette of Thunderbird 5. Inside the bag is an A5 flyer and a costume patch, sealed in silver foil.
To be in with a chance to win this special prize that money can’t buy, just answer this simple question:
In its Kepler orbit, Thunderbird 5 can only ‘see’ part of the Earth. How many sister satellites are needed so that International Rescue has total global coverage? (Clue: The answer’s in FAB 78)
