I have a question, not so much about the game but more about ITV. You mentioned on the Dice & Slice video that you have to get ITV's approval on the artwork, which makes sense, but I was wondering if they have had any input into the overall design?

@David hi there, no they don't have input on the mechanics - they have to be happy that it represents the theme of Thunderbirds of course but when we showed them the game they were very happy.
In answer to the Toys'R'Us question, due to the number of small figures in the game it may be too expensive to market in the large toy store chains but we think there that smaller toy stores may carry it. We will keep you updated on that progress as it comes.
You will see all the Tracey brothers and Lady Penelope. You will indeed see F.A.B 1 and Parker will be in the first expansion along with F.A.B 2!
Can I ask, is there a reason for the lack of full character playability, it seems funny to me that a game based on five central characters and six playable characters doesn't allow all 5 characters to be played by 5 people
@PaulDobie - it's a mixture of game balance and design. 5 players and more in co-op mode will mean that it can take too long for your turn to come around in order to successfully take on missions - this can cause real problems and isn't so much fun for players as they rarely get to see a mission through. Though the game plays quickly, the design team also felt there would be too much downtime between turns for 5 or more players.
