    Following yesterday’s update on Bond 25 we are delighted to share sneak peek images of the figures from the first James Bond film Dr. No. Bond himself is attired in his tuxedo from the now iconic casino sequence and the titular villain Dr. No is outfitted in his Nehru suit.

    Very cool, especially the Connery sculpt! Well the sets of three were in and around the £650.00 mark, so you would hope seeing as its one figure less that it would be no more than £500.00? But that's just me!

    To be honest, the Sideshow versions look like rubber ducks compared to those. But, that's just me.
    Agreed, they haven’t aged well, but it’s a costly upgrade. I reckon these two figures will be a total price of close to £600?

    True but the sideshow ones, when released, were £30-£50 each, not £300 each.

    To be honest, only Connery from Dr. No interests me to the core. The others are optional.

    That was a few years ago, mind. The quality has improved, but the price has gone up at the same time.

    Massively so! The thing is I am waiting for the LALD set which isn't due until late August!

    Shocking really. There's no need for them to be that expensive.

    As I mentioned on another thread, I was at collectormania a couple of weekends ago. Was very pleased to see that Big Chief studios were there so I was hoping to see the LALD set of figures. Sadly they were not! :(( However? The Dr No set were and are absolutely brilliant in my opinion. Take a look!

    Had an interesting chat to the team there. The interesting thing I took away from our chat is when I asked if they will do a range of Brosnan and Craig models. The response was quite surprising to me. They said allegedly that DC was a problem as they put it? So Eon won't rock the boat with their leading man over it which I guess is fair enough. But so as to not single out one actor that is why they have not given the green light to Brosnan's films to be done either. Eon are solely concentrating on making Bond 25 currently.

    Wiseman looks fantastic. But Connery looks funky. Like Parker with his coat and hands, maybe?

    Thanks for the photos @RogueAgent . Very interesting to hear about Craig and Big Chief. I believe he abhors merchandise and was the key figure in shutting down the corgi figures and busts from 2008 (I may be wrong on the year). It may be the possible he shut down the Funko Pop deal too.

    Certainly possible! Real shame in my opinion. Always feel that Bond has been so under exposed in terms of merchandise when I go to memorabilia fayres.

    Bond's jackets never quite fit right on this things.
