About Thunderbirds

Created by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson,  this iconic British science fiction show is most famous for its use of a filming technique called “Supermarionation”,. Using marionettes and scale models to create a world never seen before on television.

Set in the 2060s, the show revolved around the adventures of “International Rescue,” a secret organisation dedicated to saving lives. Led by Jeff Tracy, the Tracy brothers piloted a fleet of five state of the art vehicles, “The Thunderbirds” through missions on land, sea, air and in space. The International Rescue team also includes Brains, Tin Tin Kyrano, London Agent Lady Penelope and her driver and side-kick Parker.

Project Details

Thunderbirds: International Rescue Club is an NFT community and Web3 project that takes inspiration from the classic show.

Our first drop of 5,432 was completed on September 30th. You can pick one up on OpenSea if you didn’t get one at launch!

Holding a Thunderbirds NFT will grant you a Sandbox avatar and all applicable avatar awards for that season. We are also working on a long-term roadmap for the project including, a sandbox experience on the Reality+ estate, and further utility led NFT drops.





3D metaverse avatar

Anyone who mints a Thunderbird NFT at launch will be able to generate a fully animated, 3D Metaverse avatar to use in The Sandbox. Keep an eye on the site and Twitter for the latest news on attributes and rarities.

NFT Art Project


We believe it’s important that a project like this, which celebrates the legacy of an amazing franchise, also celebrates the legacy of the Web3 space, so we have also launched a dedicated art collection with digital artists from around the world, which we have called “Thunderbirds Reimagined”.

The artists include Harvmcm, whose signature BLOCKS style, known for its expressive and varied colour palette, has led to multiple sold-out NFT collections throughout the last two years. The collection was auctioned as part of our launch in 2022 of seven 1/1 unique pieces of artworks.

Q. What is an NFT?

An NFT is a “Non-Fungible Token” – a unique identifier. Because NFTs are authenticated on a blockchain, we can use the technology to power loads of cools things like membership clubs and games where you own the in-game items and can trade and sell them, and much more.

Q. Who are Reality+ ? Can I trust you?

Reality+ is a Web 3.0 company headquartered in Soho, London. We have real offices and in the “team” section you can links to our profiles. We’ve been working in the Web 3.0 and blockchain gaming space since our first NFT AR game, Reality Clash, in 2017.

We have a reputation for creating lasting projects with real utility and value. Our other projects include Doctor Who: Worlds Apart, a trading card game in active development that launches later this year. We also work with other global brands and celebrities on their NFT strategy.

Q. So, what about a video game?

After our drops, our next planned project is to create a Web 3.0 game called “Thunderbirds: Rescue Missions” where anyone can send their Thunderbirds away on missions to aid good causes and real-world prizes including tokens, NFTs and exclusive merchandise.

Q. Will there be other partnerships?

Currently our main partnership is through The Sandbox, but we’re exploring partnerships and interoperability with other live and future NFT projects.

Q. How do I get a Thunderbirds: IRC NFT?

Our first drop of our 5,432 generative NFTs were given away to our community members during our launch week at the end of September 2022. If you missed that first drop, you can grab an NFT on the secondary market through OpenSea.

You should also join our Discord as it’s always the first place we announce giveaways, competitions and more.

Q. I own a Thunderbirds NFT, how do I use my Sandbox avatar?

If you own an NFT you’ll have access to your Sandbox avatar around mid-November.

This is in-between “seasons” for The Sandbox, but you’ll still be able to see your avatar within the metaverse. They will be fully playable during the next alpha stage: Season 4, and during any public event hosted by the Sandbox outside of Alpha Seasons. You will also be able to see your avatar move and dance in the Avatar page on Sandbox.

In terms of potential Sandbox rewards.

Q. Will there be a Thunderbirds area within the Sandbox?

Absolutely! We’re creating a Thunderbirds Sandbox experience that we hope to launch alongside Alpha Season 4.

More details of interactivity will follow.
