As cult 1960s TV show Thunderbirds™ celebrates its 50th anniversary, we're proud to present a new range of Corgi Thunderbirds™ models based on the original classic series, for both long-standing enthusiasts and a new generation of fans.

The complete Corgi Thunderbirds™ range - FAB1, Thunderbirds 1, 2, 3, and 4 can be viewed here.

Did you know? In the original series, the Lady Penelope puppet was modelled on Thunderbirds co-creator, Sylvia Anderson, who also provided her voice.

FAB 1 was the pink, customised six-wheel Rolls Royce owned by International Rescue agent Lady Penelope Creighton-Ward, and driven by her trusty chauffeur Parker.

The Corgi Thunderbirds FAB 1 has the following special features:

  • Lady Penelope and Parker figures
  • front facing firing missile
  • rear facing rockets

What have you done to Mi'lady's Limo?

I am a big Gerry Anderson and Derek Meddings fan and can remember watch Thunderbirds when it first came out 50 years ago...at the time the toys to have were the Corgi James bond DB5 and the Dinky FAB 1! 10 years ago I was really pleased that Corgi were producing models of FAB1 and TB2 to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Thunderbirds...but I was so disappointed when my model arrived...it was as if your design team had never seen an episode of Thunderbirds...the famous pink Rolls Royce was out of proportion..too short, too narrow and too tall and where did that canopy come from! But the finish to the model was briliant. The pink was a bit to Barbie and not enough Penelope but we can live with that! I then heard that you were going to do arrange to celebrate the 50th Anniversary and I hoped that you were going to correct all the mistakes of 10 years ago but no...you just re-issued the old model minus the "Spirit of Ecstasy" Such a shame.......

Disappointing

There were no instructions with the packaging indicating how to use the missiles. The front firing missile does not fire and the rear missiles just keep falling out.
