Supermarionation Christimas 2018
A Limited Edition of Only 200 Figurines
You can’t think of Christmas without snowmen, so what about Abominable Snowmen? Well Parker is decked out in his thermal snowsuit on the hunt for such a creature, but what he finds is far from white and hairy!
Either way it’s the perfect excuse to introduce Parker as this year’s Supermarionation Christmas Special figurine. Taken from the ‘Abominable Snowman’, one of three new episodes created to Celebrate the Thunderbirds 50th Anniversary and produced by Stephen La Riviere. Each new adventure was cleverly adapted from audio-only stories featuring the original voice cast and filmed using all the classic Supermarionation techniques.
Sculpted by Mike Rogers, each Official 2018 Christmas piece is a Limited Edition of only 200 pieces Worldwide and to mark its provenance, each figurine will be hand numbered on the base with a unique edition number and supplied with a Certificate of Authenticity!
Please note that Parker has a real pewter axe for added strength!

'The Abominable Snowman'
International Rescue and been called out to an explosion at a Uranium plant. It is not the first disaster to involve a Uranium plant and many more have recently been destroyed.
Back at Tracy Island, International Rescue have also received a distress call from the Everest area, regarding disappearances linked to the Abominable Snowman. Jeff Tracy is doubtful, but upon John’s insistence he sends Lady Penelope and Parker to investigate.
Penelope and Parker are en route to the area on board a ski-copter when their guide secretly sabotages the aircraft and they are all forced to evacuate via an escape pod. Penelope injures her ankle in the rough landing and is unable to walk. Their guide then suggests that Penelope rests in the escape pod while Parker accompanies him to look for the footprints left by the Abominable Snowman.
The guide leads Parker into an ice cave and through a mysterious steel door that leads further into the mountain. The guide then suddenly draws a pistol and, holding Parker at gun point, he reveals that he is in fact the Abominable Snowman and has lured people into the cave to be his slaves mining for Uranium. With the Uranium Plants destroyed, the cost of Uranium has risen and the guide plans to make his fortune.
