What is the Thunderbirds: International Rescue Club NFT drop about?
Much as its name suggests, this is a collection of digital assets inspired by the ’60s TV series “Thunderbirds”. There are 1000 NFTs in total for this release. Each NFT is a digital Pass that you can use to join the project’s community: the International Rescue Club.
The founding team has already sold out its first batch of 500 NFTs. However, the most active community members can receive one of the 500 remaining collectibles for free! Collectors can get to mint their NFT Pass by joining Twitter and Discord channels.
In terms of design, the 3D avatars resemble the main characters of the show. Each collectible will also be available as an avatar in the Sandbox, much to collectors’ delight.
“We’re pleased to partner up with ITV Studios and Reality+ to launch the legendary Thunderbirds franchise into the metaverse,” said The Sandbox’s Co-founder Sebastien Borget. “The Sandbox continues to bring culture & entertainment with Thunderbirds, allowing fans to own, play and become creative as they imagine and bring to life new adventures and stories with their characters of the original series.”
Do NFT holders get any special perks?
Firstly, each Thunderbirds NFT Pass can become a 3D full-body avatar. There are 6 rarities available, each featuring unique traits: Zombie, Ape, Cyborg, Gold, Metalight, and Standard. Starting this month, these collectibles are ready to take you on an unforgettable adventure in the Sandbox!
Surprisingly, NFT holders will also be able to attend real-life “Rescue Missions”. To clarify, community members can decide where the project’s DAO funds will go, such as charities.
In the future, fans will also have the chance to collect digital artworks of iconic places, vehicles, and more characters from Thunderbirds. All in all, the project’s community members are in for an unforgettable ride inspired by a truly iconic sci-fi TV series.
What is Thunderbirds?
Thunderbirds is a science-fiction TV series animated via computer programming. Launched in 2015, it is in fact a remake of the 1964 series “Thunderbirds”.
The show tells the story of a rescue group created by a family who lives on a secret island. The year is 2060 and their missions will take you underwater, in the air, and on new lands. ‘Thunderbirds’ is the name of the main vehicles they use in their missions, hence the show’s name.
