Well, we’ve been following the development of the new Thunderbirds Are Go! series for a while now (here) and at last we get a look at their faces…

The image, above, shows the full look of the new Tracy brothers. What do you guys reckon?

The series, from the ITV Studios, Pukeko Pictures and Weta seems to be really trying to pay homage Gerry Anderson’s Supermarionation along with modern CGI animation.

The cast though is something to be excited about with Rosamund Pike as Lady Penelope, Kayvan Novak is Brains and Thomas Brodie-Sangster is John Tracy. Interestingly, David Graham, who played Parker in the original 1960s series, is back in the role.

ITVis confident the show will be well recieved as they have already ordered a 26 episode season 2. Series one airs in the spring.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
