Default More Takara Tomy kits and toys for next year

Takara Tomy are bringing out a 1/72 model kit of Thunderbird S, plus toys (with sounds) of FAB1, Thunderbird S and a pod vehicle manufacturing set next year.
I think the ones with sound could be Vivid's next releases and maybe the pod vehicle set too?

Does Thunderbird S actually do anything? I haven't seen it in any episode except the first one where it's pronounced ready.

Apparantly Kayo gets more to do later in the series and TB-S comes into play a bit then.

Hmm. Never did care for the updated version - think the original "flying pie-plate" is still the best - but it is nice to see TB5 getting some of the love...

(Perhaps new toy ought to be offered along with a to-scale TB3 in the docking collar, as a set?)

It is, after all, where everything begins (5...)!

Can't say I'm that bothered by Thunderbird S. I hope they do a detailed Fab 1 kit though.

What I hate about most modern toys is the amount of vinyl they use. Guaranteed the noses of TB1 and TB3 will be that soft crap. Even things like TB2's wings are vinyl on some toys.

All elf n' safety but kids can get injured just as easily if you throw a TB1 at them backwards.

When I was young we just ducked to avoid getting hurt- lawn darts were great fun and I cannot recall a single injury from playing them.

If this show gets legs perhaps we will see a model kit or two- not that interested on play toy replicas much

This is the thing. There's plenty of non toy stuff that can injure kids and just take a look in anyone's kitchen for all the harmful cutlery etc.

I don't like my Thunderbirds having soft pointy bits.

Even if you wrap your kids in bubble-wrap and stand above them with protective arms, things can happen. One thing which children should develop early is some basic situational awareness. Dangerous stuff is everywhere and they need to learn behavior and caution to avoid it getting hurt. Yes, kids will am around and bump into stuff, after a few bandaids and a couple of tears they learn what not to do and how to act- that is simply growing up.
You can have all the soft blunt bits you want on something and they can still get hurt.

The old Corgi SPV my best friend had (and I was very jealous of) would shoot missiles if you rolled the front wheels over something in a certain way. We never got one of those tiny missiles in our eye of accidentally swallowed one. That toy could probably not be sold as it was due to the nanny police determining it was a hazard.

I am staying away from that so called "updated" styles of those TB vehicles!
