Welcome to the Thunderbirds: International Rescue Club!
We’re a brand new NFT community based on the television show, Thunderbirds. In partnership with ITV Studios we’re taking the fictional world of international rescue into the real one, with metaverse avatars in the Sandbox, a ground-breaking charity DAO where 20% of our projects are designated to real-world rescue missions, an online Web3 experience and so much more.
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.
Thunderbirds: International Rescue club is a brand new NFT community and long-term Web3 project based on the classic television series.
We’re taking the world of International Rescue into the new generation with:
stay tuned on Discord for all the latest updates
We launched our website and social media on June 7th, and, shortly after, our International Rescue Club Discord server, where you can become a part of our extraordinary journey! We’ll be working directly with ITV Studios on outreach to fans and newcomers alike.
We’re sending out our first Rescue Mission in the real world! 20% of all the money raised through the Thunderbirds: International Rescue Club goes straight to charity. Our very first rescue mission is heading out to Bulgaria to help the Dobrich Dog Rescue charity thanks to the support of our Discord community and partners. Starting from September, a DAO formed of NFT holders will be established to pick charities and causes.
We’ll be running a live event in London where we’ll be doing auctions, giveaways, photo opportunities and more. Make sure you’re registered on Discord for a chance to get a free ticket. If you’re not in the UK, we’ll be announcing ways to get involved online closer to the show!
Prepare for lift-off with the Thunderbirds: IRC Mint Pass on September 2nd. We’re giving away 500 FREE mint passes that will allow you to mint up to 2 NFTs before the public sale, avoiding gas fees and grabbing your generative NFT before anyone else. Mint Pass holders will also be able to burn their pass after the sale for incredibly rare, exclusive Thunderbirds NFT artwork.
During September we’ll be auctioning a specially-commissioned collection of seven 1/1 artworks on Opensea, created by both established and upcoming artists in the NFT community. The artworks will help fund our charity missions and owning one will grant you access to a free Thunderbirds generative NFT on launch.
A total of 5,432 Thunderbirds generative NFTs goes live on International Thunderbirds Day! The first benefit to holding a generative NFT will be access to a 3D voxel avatar in The Sandbox, which will be created using each NFT’s unique collection of attributes, with a ton more coming in the next few months.
Holders of the Thunderbirds generative NFTs will be able to claim a free generative vehicle NFT. The drop will be based on the classic Thunderbirds vehicles, locations, and stories from the show. The rarest NFTs in this drop will grant owners access to exclusive prizes and special access to future drops.
This isn’t just a single drop! We’re bringing long-term utility to our NFTs via a Web3 experience, where staked NFTs can be sent away on missions to rank up and earn unique prizes. More information coming very soon!
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.
We believe it’s important that a project like this, which celebrates the legacy of an amazing franchise, also celebrates the legacy of the Web 3.0 space. We will launch a dedicated art collection with digital artists from around the world.
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. Other artists include Femzor, who experiments with surreal environments and Rhys, a digital artist and rug maker from Wales.

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 Gaming Group? Can I trust you?
Reality Gaming Group (RGG) 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. What is the mint amount and what is the price?
The network, amount of NFTs being minted in our main drop and the public and whitelist price will be announced during August and September. All these announcements will be made first on our Discord alongside exclusive raffles to enter our whitelist, so make sure you sign up and take part in the community.
Q. Is there a whitelist and how can I apply?
Whitelist access will ONLY be given out via our newsletter and Discord. You sign-up to the newsletter below and join the Discord here. There will be tons of opportunities to join the whitelist this summer.
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. What exactly do I get?
NFTs are not just images. Owning the NFT and having it in your wallet grants you access to experiences, merchandise, games, competitions and more.
Owning an NFT doesn’t just give you ownership of the image. You also get exclusive access to a ton of additional benefits, like:
