Meccano has teamed with ITV Studios Global Entertainment for a Thunderbirds Are Go construction toy line.

Launching at retail in the UK from this autumn, the new range will allow fans to build a replica Thunderbird 2.

The new Thunderbird 2 model is built from over 650 metal coloured Meccano parts with its realistic features including a cargo bay pod, thrust nozzles, and foldable landing legs.

Builders can also construct ‘The Mole’ which deploys into action from a replica Pod 5.

"Meccano and Thunderbirds have so much brand heritage to build on," said Emma Eden, marketing manager for Meccano.

“With both brands having already made a significant impact in the toy world this year, it’s a really exciting time to be launching this fantastic new Meccano set. Following the success of new TV series and with so much focus on Meccano from a marketing perspective, we anticipate great demand.”
