Terrahawks was a children’s TV show produced by Gerry Anderson (he of Captain Scarlet, Stingray, and Thunderbirds fame). As such, it relied on Supermarionation: Anderson’s technique using puppets that included electric moving parts. Forty-one short years after it was first screened, Terrahawks is now perfect inspiration for Dave Stapley, who has made his own 3D-printed Major Zeroid from the show.

We don’t have many details to share; frankly, we don’t need any. Dave says he’s going to share the 3D print files soon. The LEDs in the eyes and mouth are animated, and the character’s eyes open and close. Hopefully he’ll include the voice of the original character (provided by Windsor Davies!) Until that time, we’ll just have to imagine it.
