To celebrate five decades of work by iconic Thunderbirds creator Gerry Anderson, Royal Mail's first stamp issue of 2011 features a few recognisable marionettes.

The stamp series, which can be purchased from today, is titled FAB: The Genius of Gerry Anderson, featuring Stingray, Captain Scarlet, a Supercar ('It's the marvel of the age!') and other colourful nods to Anderson's puppetry.
