Meet the new Thunderbird 1…

June 19th, 2014 by Marc 1 Comment

Thunderbird 1 has gone under a massive redesign and will probably horrify the fans of the classic 60s series. 

Not really.

The folks at SFX  managed to grab the image above of the iconic ship in the upcoming Thunderbirds reboot series, Thunderbirds are Go!, and, as you can see, they wisely stuck to the basics.

The series will be a combination of live-action sets and CGI. We’re excited too at the news that former Bond Girl Rosamund Pike (below) will be the voice of Lady Penelope and David Graham, the original Parker will be returning to reprise the role.

Thunderbirds Are Go! hits screens early in 2015

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….
