    Why the long face?

      I need to get a new avatar so took my old one down and so it's in default mode at the moment. I'll think of something soon to replace it hopefully!
    • jake24
      jake24
      I like it!
    • Dragonpol
      Dragonpol
      Back to the original and probably best.
    • Thunderfinger
      Thunderfinger
      Is that really the original?
    • Dragonpol
      Dragonpol
      No. It was something else. A picture of a 1930s gangster with a tommy-gun outside a car I think.
    • Thunderfinger
      Thunderfinger
      Mine was a Horak in colours.
    • Dragonpol
      Dragonpol
      Nice. I was thinking of changing it to a comic strip Bond funny!
  • ClarkDevlin
    I see you've put the 'Longbarrel' Colt in use, 007. Always assumed it was a revolver rather than automatic...
    October 2016
    • Dragonpol
      Dragonpol
      It looks like an automatic in the picture though I'm no expert.
    • ClarkDevlin
      ClarkDevlin
      Was only speaking in character. Haha! That one is a Colt M1911A1. Something I always assumed was the pistol that Bond kept in his DB Mark III instead of the longbarrel Colt (a revolver) Fleming refers to that was found in his Bentley's compartment many times.
    • Dragonpol
      Dragonpol
      Ah, I see. Have to say I'm not familiar with the character but it is a nice avatar I like to think.
    • ClarkDevlin
      ClarkDevlin
      Oh it was nothing strange. I was just trying to speak like M. Haha! The avatar from what I remember was, perhaps, a mock-up edit over a promotional Hitman wallpaper. I think you'd enjoy that franchise over the literary medium, too, @dragonpol. There are currently two novels and one of them is written by Raymond Benson. It's primary medium is the video game industry, to be precise.
    • Dragonpol
      Dragonpol
      Yes, I will have to check that out, ClarkDevlin. Thank you for the recommendations.
    • ClarkDevlin

      My pleasure. :)

      Thank you for the reminder, Jake. I've just added pics to both threads.
  • Chriscoop
    Thanks, you have some interesting avatars yourself, I'm liking the current one.
    July 2016
    • Dragonpol
      Dragonpol
      Thanks! Yes, that is my default avatar, though I change it occasionally only to come back to it again. I believe the image comes from the cover art of a German novel of the 1920s. The man kind of looks like a magician so it's in keeping with the real Dragonpol in a way. I also really like cats and need to possibly start a thread about that.
  • MotleyCat74
    Hello Dragonpool. Nice to meet you, bet you can't wait for more JB workprint content on this site soon, right? :)

    Thanks! He's an underrated M and I like all the M's equally, IMO. They had their strengths relating to a particular Bond. It's just a shame Robert Brown's M was the most underwritten and he was never really able to flesh out his character.
    November 2015
    • Dragonpol
      Dragonpol
      Yes, I like Robert Brown but perhaps OP and LTK are his most effective performances.

      Dragonpol
      Correct, sir! I never knew he was a pipe smoker. I was looking up old videos of Rod Hull and Emu yesterday and I came across this pic. God bless you, Rod.

      No, I sold it to some Aussie called Murdoch. Don't know what happened to him!
    • Thunderfinger

      I think Murdock is American. He became a hitman, like yourself.
    • Dragonpol

      Well, Australian-American. He killed off the News of the World certainly.

      Can I interest either of you two in volunteering for Bond by Numbers "Casino Royale"? Interest seems to have fizzled but since It's almost complete I want to get it done.

      They've renamed the News of the World as The Colonel Sun on Sunday. A much better title I feel.

      It's a commemorative coin for the IF Centenary from 2008. It's not legal tender of course but I think it's a great tribute to Old Ian. Sadly I can't seem to find any more information out about it on the net.
