Thunderbirds has action, suspense, some combat scenarios, a range of vehicles to operate, and a wide collection of characters with unique specialist skills. Surely, a video game based on the format is as easy as interpreting Alan Tracy’s nigthmares? So, why has every single Thunderbirds game that’s ever been produced not hit the mark for me?

Which scene from Thunderbirds is being filmed in this photo? Here’s the long answer…
For years I’ve looked at this behind the scenes photograph from Thunderbirds and tried to work out which episode/scene is being filmed. It’s been published in countless books, magazines, and websites over the years and I’ve never found a definitive answer. The puppet characters and the set being worked on are so brightly lit and generic that it’s difficult to make out any distinctive details to make it abundantly obvious which scene is being worked on. In the past I’ve seen some folks identify it as Pit of Peril, End of the Road, Edge of Impact, and a miriad of other alternatives – some of which seemed credible but didn’t quite sit right with me. So, I finally decided to undertake my own investigations. This article started life as an unpublished tweet that got out of hand. You folks know how I like to make a mountain out of a mole hill, so I’ve decided to convert my research into a blog post so that I’m not hampered by Twitter’s pesky character limits. But just like Twitter, the whole thing ended up turning into an argument…
Thunderbirds: Terror From The Stars REVIEW

Every Explosion In Thunderbirds (Video)
Watch your eardrums everybody. The follow-up to my Every F.A.B. In Thunderbirds video is finally here, but this time it was impossible to keep count because of the explosive circumstances. The world of Thunderbirds is full of things that go whizz, bang, pop and everything in between. I thought it would be awfully fun to compile all of those terrific explosions into one handy video. I didn’t realise it would be quite this long – but I should have known better.
LEGO Zero-X MOC (Thunderbirds Are Go)
There’s something about Zero-X which lends itself to the medium of LEGO. The blocky and modular nature of the design make it a match made in heaven. But don’t let that fool you into thinking this was an easy feat to pull off. I’ve been wanting to tackle Zero-X in LEGO for a long time, and it’s been my most requested build on Twitter and Facebook, but it took a lot of careful design work to make it a reality.
Lady Penelope’s Yacht, FAB 2 – LEGO MOC
Sometimes, when I’m trying to come up with my next Anderson-themed LEGO build, I spend hours trying to think up an impressive crowd-pleaser. Other times I want to diversify my collection in order to represent a machine from every series. In the case of FAB 2, I really just wanted to get back to basics and build something fun and a bit different.
