Gerry Anderson’s Son Is Reviving Firestorm…in ULTRAMARIONATION!


Real explosions.

That’s one of the major takeaways from Jamie Anderson’s Kickstarter pitch video – he will build puppets and sets, and he will blow them up for your enjoyment.

It worked – Firestorm has only been on Kickstarter a couple of days, and it’s already fully funded. Originally conceived as a puppet show but sold as the anime series Storm Force in 2003, this Firestorm will be returning to its roots and terrifying a new generation of kids with those weird marionettes that always creeped me the hell out. I mean, people talk about “uncanny valley” in CG, but marionettes had dead eyes from day one.

I’m down to see some get blown up.
