AOSHIMA Celebrates 'Thunderbirds' With "Super Oversized" Thunderbird 2

Japanese model toy company AOSHIMA has just announced a new throwback toy.

While many companies have reissued the classic Thunderbird vehicles from the ’60s Supermarionation series, this new toy release is a jumbo edition. Sitting at almost 14 inches in length, Thunderbird 2 is captured in all its glory with a green paint job and red/yellow accents. The figure uses the same mold from the ’60s and also has the functioning cargo container with metal telescopic legs.

The green supersonic carrier aircraft also comes with supporting rescue vehicles like the yellow submersible Thunderbird 4 and fellow pod machine The Mole. As a bonus, the figure will also come with miniature versions of Thunderbird 1, and the Thunderbird 5 space station. Scheduled for a June release, this will be available for ¥6,600 JPY (approximately $60 USD).
