Currently watching the classic series. How should I watch it in order? By the regular episode list or the production order? Also, does Japanese really like this? It seems they like Thunderbirds, and inspired to do that kind of miniature stuffs on Ultraman it's just my asspull, you can blame me if I'm wrong.

And also new trailer for Thunderbirds Are Go will go up this Friday 13th.
>>
>>12233659
Well, the only place with a BD release of the series is Japan.
>>
Ah yes Thunderbirds.

I remember waking up really fucking early for no reason on Saturday morning and just seeing 2 Thunderbirds "episodes" in a row. That took up like 3 hours of my time
>>
>>12233844
What? Seriously?
>>
>>12233921
Nope, there's a UK BD but it crops the top and bottom to make it widescreen.

Well that sucks.

Remember the movie version they released more than 10 years ago?

Me neither.

Japan loves it, as far as I can tell. Lots of Thunderbirds stuff in Akiba and other otaku hot spots.
>>
>>12233659
There's a little continuity but for the most part, Thunderbirds can be watched in any order you want. Best to just stick to production order.
>>
>>12234026
Even got a cafe somewhere in Tokyo, though I have no idea what happened to it.

Ah, I see. I was copying whole two seasons from a friend, and I downloaded the subs later. The episodes order was different between the video files and the subs, that's why I asked it. Thank you btw.

>>12234026
>>12234070
I always check on Mandarake to see some good stuffs of Thunderbirds. Some are Revoltech Thunderbird 2, and some are the model kits of the vehicles. Any idea when was it aired in Japan? Because the box design of pic related seems new, like, it was aired around 20 years ago. Even they change the name The Mole to Jet Mogera Tank

A cafe? Seems like I've ever seen news about it somewhere.
>>
Also from the official page on FB, the new logo for Thunderbird 5 seems... Too ilerminaty to me.
>>
>>12234348
It was in the 1960s as well, I believe. It's definitely before Ultra man.
>>
>>12234648
Now this kinda bugs me, Thunderbirds ran through 1966, and Ultraman also began in the middle of 1966.
>>
>>12234023
beautiful work. There's just nothing like a live miniature set.
>>
>>12235061
Thunderbirds was certainly before Ultraman, and before Thunderbirds was another series that was in B/W. Gerry Anderson was certainly the pioneer in bringing those effects to TV.
>>
>>12234023
That's from Team America. Still pretty boss, though.
>>
>>12235166
oops, i guess I didn't read the file name. Was a little confused the way it was worded.
>>
>>12234348
They reran Thunderbirds in the UK in 1992 and 2002. The reissued new toys to celebrate those airings too. Considering Thunderbirds is even more popular over in Japan than it is here, it's not a great leap to assume they re-air the series there too. Or that it's popular enough to get toy reissues.
>>
>>12235061
Ultra Seven's model work was definitely inspired by Thunderbirds and the other Anderson puppet shows, the creators confirmed that.
>>
>>12235082
Ah yes, I'm sorry I was too fixated on Thunderbirds and I forgot other shows Gerry Anderson's ever made.

>>12235631
I can take it, their main aircraft that can split into three was kinda like Thunderbird 1 too.

>>12235599
I bet the Japanese likes the aesthetics of the shows, dem heavy vehicles, though.

Definitely good taste indeed. I watch Thunderbirds because they have so many cool vehicles inside it. I still can't believe those were designed in the 60s.

Gee, thinking about making whole characters, vehicles, and sets from zero.

I bet that would be about few thousand Poundsterling to produce one doll now.

Forget about cost, I imagine there is nobody skilled enough to even make those props anymore. Really it's a dying art puppeteering and model making.

It's true, it's a dying art. Ultraman is the last hold out, who knows how long it will last.
>>
>>12241106
>>12241229
What about super sentai? They still used real props for the giant vehicles/animals if they've got the budget to make some anyway and miniature buildings.

But yeah, I'm still watching it right now, and I gotta say I'm impressed by how the technology at that time went. I think I shall get myself Captain Scarlet some time later.
>>
I always forget that Thunderbirds is not a Japanese series, since all the merchandise for it comes from there.
>>
>>12241556
For me, I still don't believe that Thunderbirds was created by British people.
>>
>>12241463
Yeah but note how rarely buildings get destroyed in sentai outside of stock footage. Ultra shows still blow up the model village on a weekly basis.
>>
>>12241611
Even more more amazing is the fact it was made in Slough.
>>
>>12241102
>yfw none of these series ever got a proper ending
At least Hood was merely a recurring villain in Thunderbirds so a proper ending wasn't really necessary.

I def. give you Captain Scarlet though. The dream episode being the final episode just made it WORSE.
>>
>>12241556
Fun fact; it was the original Dinky toys that inspired Japanese toy companies to largely abandon tin and vinyl in favor of die cast and plastic.

Slough is where the British version of The Office is set. It's a large semi-industrial town on the edge of London. Stock joke is that nuking it would be an improvement.

They don't really do a lot of miniature work aside from buildings. You never see a view from the ground where you can see cars, streetlights, etc. And really, it's such a small part of sentai, it's not worth them doing it.

Watch the robot scenes in GoGo V, then in Gaoranger. They were using miniatures for everything in the 90s, and some of the stuff in Carranger, Megaranger, and so on is pure art.

And then with Gaoranger they started using CG. They occasionally still do prop work, but...
>>
>>12251572
Yeah man, you're correct, I did enjoy the gattai sequence, especially when it's real prop. But the ones nowadays aren't usually using props, though... Whether it's just the mechs or gattai sequence.

Thunderbirds Are Go here is trying to use a bit of the old way, backgrounds and places are real miniature, but everything else is CGI, which I highly doubt how that will work. Trailer will come up tomorrow though, but since I'm in GMT+7, it's gonna be a heck of waiting.

So, Thunderbird 5 is the most useless one, right?
Wouldnt it make more sense to have a drill tank (except that it wouldnt fit with the whole bird-theme)?
>>
>>12257222
Yeah I know, but the classic series didn't have an ending at all, right? It was just cancelled.

>>12257251
Actually without TB5, IR won't really get info where disaster happens. But yeah, other than that, still most useless. The Mole/drill tank is part of the TB2's Pod Vehicle, though.
>>
>>12257140
Hate the character CGI but the set and vehicles look great.

Thunderbird 2 is best thunderbird
>>
>>12257140
Cautious optimism. Though the most hype part was when they used Jeff's voice clips from the original opening.

And so that answers our question about the Hood being a Malaysian witch doctor, I guess.
>>
>>12257251
Thunderbird 5 is the one that detects emergencies and directs International Rescue to them. Also a crucial support platform for any space based operations with Thunderbird 3. Where else is the rocket going to refuel, Mars? With the fucking Mysterons shining lights in your face?

Actually lead to an interesting character dynamic for John Tracy, the least developed of the brothers. He's always stuck up there alone on scout duty, while his brothers are off jetting around the globe saving people and sunning it up on Tracy Island while he pees in bags and eats food out of a tube while combating muscular degeneration. The only time he actually gets to participate in a rescue mission he's an overeager hothead who butts heads with his more experienced brothers. And along with Alan he's the one who takes the most after their father.
>>
>>12259218
Well, Alan and John alternate, each spending equal time manning TB5 and on the island.

It's just that the stuff always seems to go down when John's on duty, because I understand Gerry didn't like John.
>>
>>12257140
My jimmies are still rustled about the CGI characters but those vehicles look great, and the sets are sex. Those original opening clips were great.

Definitely not the case, considering Ultraman's creator was already used to miniatures from his Godzilla work.
>>

I like that they actually have somebody working base security now, that oversight was what enabled the horrific live-action movie to happen.

Tracy Island never really had much in the way of actual security if I recall, now they do.

>>12261242
Now that you've said it, I seriously forget what that 2004 film was all about. It's so ugly I only saw it once years ago and never again.
>>
>>12261274
Basically, the entirety of the actual cast get fucked in the first ten minutes and it's left to a couple of kids to save International Rescue with awful designs of the Thunderbirds themselves.

>>
>>12261298
Actually I went to search it after my last post, sorry to bother you

The first ten minutes? Holy shit, I don't even remember their role was so short, no wonder that film was focusing more about Alan. And yeah, the vehicles are really ugly, Mole and Firefly were absurd as fuck.
>>
>>12261354
It might not quite have been the first ten minutes, but it feels like it. The point is that the people and machines get sidelined really early so we can focus on bad comedy and shitty child actors. After all, who would ever go to a Thunderbirds movie to see International Rescue rescuing people and averting disaster?

>>12260976
>Definitely not the case, considering Ultraman's creator was already used to miniatures from his Godzilla work.

The scenes in Ultraman shows where a plane goes through an elaborate launch sequence are definitely inspired by thunderbirds. Tsubaraya was a master to be sure, but no artist lives in a vacuum. His vision for Godzilla was to do stop-motion animation like in Kong Kong, but it was too expensive.

>>
>>12261685
This looks bretty good. Any explanation of the mechanics anywhere?
>>
>>12241847
apparently the CG shit is only for the characters, a lot of everything else is actual models and sets. so... Its kind of interesting.
>>
>>12262403

It's made by the same guy who made pandemic, the mechanics are that each player controls one of the IR dudes, and different missions are popping up in different parts of the world (or space) every turn, and different vehicles/characters have better or worse chances of completing each mission, at the same time, you're trying to collect resources needed to stop the hood, but those same resources might also be critical to being able to take care of all the missions in enough time.

Basically, you're racing around trying to stop all these disasters (if left too long, you lose) while also doing whatever you need to do to stop the hood (if ever one of his schemes succeeds, or if he managed to get to the end of his 'planning' track, you lose as well.)
>>
Gerry Anderson went on record as saying that Team America was a much more faithful Thunderbirds movie than the live action Thunderbirds movie.

If I may be honest, actually I hoped for the IR vehicles are not to be CGI too. I'm okay with the characters being in CGI because reasons, but the vehicles, should it be in CGI? I think not.

Gee, Tsuburaya only use CGI when the vehicle scenes is extremely fast or stuff.

What they did to TB2 in the movie was unforgivable.

>>12266681
It's been a while, what exactly did they do?

Well fuck you, /m/. You've cost me at least £12 this week so far (ordered a bunch of GA show patches) and potentially £75 in two weeks time thanks to that boardgame.

I'm just glad there aren't any modern model kits of Thunderbirds stuff otherwise I'd be even more broke.

They have to sell the series to Japan first. But yeah, I won't refuse either for model kits.

I mean, come on here. Yeah, you can't just repeat the 1960s but a bit of effort with it would be nice.

>>12272727
What about Kyrano and Tin-Tin?

>>12272746
They don't count according to modern sensibilities as they're ethnic as fuck and below the white men.

You know, AmiAmi and Hobby Search is back-ordering this kit and the others. But I just know that there's this version. IC sound chip, wonder what sound it makes.

Yeah, finally TB3 has some more use rather than being a space vehicle.

Oh man, the use to tilt-shift makes the vehicles and environments purposefully look like miniature sets, I love it. I'm a little standoff'ish about CGI, but even as a kid as the rather glaring limitations of marionettes and models was something you just had to accept.

What I'm surprisingly pleased about is that of all the old marks to get a reboot, they chose one of the ones with the Rescue theme, something sorely lacking in kid's shows in the last decade or so, you get to have action and life-lessons without having to get creative about portrayal of violence. Plus from a marketing standpoint it's perfect for merchandising.

Now then, Captain Scarlet when?

Yeah, rescue, the last time I remember was Japan making Rescue Force and Rescue Fire, it's quite a rare theme to be used I'd say.

Yeah, the CGI on the IR vehicles especially. Even though I just watched Ultra Galaxy Mega where the vehicles went total CGI on real miniatures, I try to be positive about this upcoming series, albeit actually they still can use real miniature if the vehicles go slow or something.

National Hero. World renowned billionaire philanthropist. Legendary astronaut. Widowed Father of five Aryan Supermen.

The protagonists of most Anderson shows were total Gary Stu's in retrospect, but only on paper. The sheer enormity of the threats they fought on a weekly basis demands them to be the absolute best specimens humanity can produce.
