Truffle Shuffle launches Thunderbirds t-shirt range
Truffle Shuffle and Peter Black Footwear and Accessories have recently launched Thunderbirds lines either directly or in partnership with retailers.
Truffle Shuffle's "Classic Thunderbirds" inspired line of T-shirts for men and women, and sweaters for men, all featuring various characters from the series. The products are available now exclusively online from www.truffleshuffle.com and include Lady Penelope, Parker and Brains t-shirts and a Virgil Tracy Thunderbirds fancy dress costume.
ITV Studios Global Entertainment, which licenses Thunderbirds, is apparently in discussion with a number of other potential licensees as it grows the licensing program for the Classic Thunderbirds brand.
What's intriguing us of course is that the franchise is being defined as "Classic Thunderbirds", suggesting a "New Thunderbirds" is still on its way...
