New toys from Vivid – don’t let the Hood get his hands on them!
The latest additions to Vivid’s impressive Thunderbirds Ar Go toy range include an articulated Kayo action figure, a Brains and M.A.X action figure twin pack, and FAB 1, with retractable wings and sound effects.
A Thunderbird Shadow toy, complete with vehicle and communication sounds, and Shadow Bike, is also imminent.
Having taken it for a ‘test drive’, we can confirm that the FAB1 toy lives up the standards of the other vehicles from Vivid, with some excellently captured sounds. Our favourites being, undoubtedly:
Parker: “I believe we’ve got company, m’lady.”
Lady Penelope: “Turn the car around, Parker. I have some international rescue business to attend to.”
The Brains, M.A.X. and Kayo action figures are all highly faithful to the characters as they appear in the series, and are both highly durable and fully poseable.
In the UK, Thunderbirds Are Go toys were the second highest-selling new licensed toys of 2015, while Vivid’s supersize TB3 playset was recently voted the best action toy at London Toy Fair.
