No rant - wisdom. Something in far-too-short supply these days. (And you've got that from a baby-boomer...)

And my biggest bug bare of all, if all this non violence in programing/life etc works, how come we have the most violence ever from young people. I mean did you ever hear of children killing adults when we were kids? I don't mean to put a downer on young people by the way, 99.9% of them are great, it just seems that the ones that do go off the rails these days, do it in a far worse way than in the past

Grumpy old man rant over

Klingon marital aid.




One thing about the classic Thunderbirds - it showed kids that the world can be a dangerous place but if you were smart and brave you can win the day. The Tracys put their lives on the line to help complete strangers, while they did have a technological edge most of time time the most important thing was courage.

I would love to say "what a fabulous new series !" but I know I won't. The only single thing I am interested in is the model shots. The CGI characters make me want to throw up. I'm old school.....forgive me.
Well said. I feel exactly the same way. All of the Tracy boys are now teenagers. Scott Tracy was a decorated US Air Force pilot. All of them even, the youngest "Alan" graduated college. This new version looks like it's targeted to the Star Wars The Clone Wars or Star Wars Rebels audience. Now that may be a bad thing, but in my heart I have a expectation of what International Rescue is and who the Tracy family are.

Not a whole lot of good information out there yet about the new craft- there have been some links posted with some images, but a lot of things we are still learning about. It was suspected that TB-2's wings would move or fold, but it was not into the toy pictures came out we had this confirmed.

Thank you Richard I guess I will have to just grow a little older before I can scratchbuild one of the new craft.

Are they teenagers though? I can't make my mind up as it's not easy to determine how old the original puppets were supposed to be and compare them to these CGI versions - and Scott at least doesn't look like a teenager in this does he?

Just seen a advert on tv with the new
Thunderbird 2

Oh my god
It looks like a load of lego
The side engine booms the intakes
Are square

Gone are the sleek
Original intakes

In fact to me it looked more like
A transformer

Don't know what else to add

I am very serious about it,I believe it is long overdue that we at Eagle
Transporter should form and create our own independent production
company or team to create the real good stuff and quality that the fans
really want,without Hollywood to mess it up.
