Last year, LEGO Ideas member Andrew Clark hit a home run. His product idea for a LEGO Flintstones set got support, passed review, and became an official set released this March. What might be next for him? Well, Clark has another product idea close to 10-K support. But it’s got less than 100 days left.
This other submission is based on “Thunderbirds are Go.” That’s the CGI-animated remake of the iconic 1960s British sci-fi “Supermarionation” series “Thunderbirds.” Clark’s product idea is a micro-scale multi-vehicle build set. Its central feature is the Thunderbird 2 carrier, able to transport any of 2 smaller vehicles in its pod.
Said sub-vehicles are the search-and-rescue mini-sub Thunderbird 4 and the Mole tunneling driller. Clark’s LEGO Ideas images include the Elevator Car from the original 1960s show. He has retained that despite its not appearing in the “Thunderbirds are Go” reboot.
Also included are micro-figures of the Scott brothers: Scott, Virgil (Thunderbird 2 pilot), Alan, Gordon (Thunderbird 4 pilot) and John. Later updates by Andrew Clark add retro-style International micro-figures including support member Brains. Then there’s the bonus Virgil Tracy minifigures (in retro/remake styles) plus an adjustable Thunderbird 2 cockpit chair for him to sit on.
Extra bits include some 1×3 LEGO bricks printed with the International Rescue acknowledgement call-sign “FAB.” Next are variable 2×3 printed tiles for Thunderbird 2’s carrier pod: 3 for Elevator Car and 4 for Thunderbird 4. Clark’s submission stands at 7,960 supporters with 87 days left.
