Thunderbirds Are Go! Bag winners revealed

We’ve been celebrating the build up to the launch of Thunderbirds Are Go! with a series of competitions to win some very special promotional bags – and now we can reveal the winners!

Produced specially for Brand Licensing Europe, the black bag carries the series title along with a coloured silhouette of a particular Thunderbirds craft. Inside the bag is an A5 flyer and a costume patch, sealed in silver foil. As well as one lucky winner of each bag, two runners up in each competition won copies of the A5 flier.

Congratulations to all our winners – thanks for taking part!
