I know there are various threads for specific Bond items but I was wondering if anyone actually owns a legit Bond prop
from any of the films? I have most of the Bond films on VHS. I was thinking about buying a replica Bond watch just for display purposes and maybe a replica Walter PPK. I think it'd be cool to have a little Bond display collection with all my gear.

Coolest prop I have seen online from one of the films was Bonds rebreather. Gotta be the coolest prop imo!
I know you can also buy spectre rings online..

So anyone have an props or replicas? Or even a little Bond display collection?

    I have a union jack parachute, I even used it once to go skydiving. :) I'm not an actor though.

    Hi all, it's been ages since I posted any prop photos... thought this here thread would be more suitable than the other replica threads as it covers more than that. Apologies if the images are too grainy.

    Some Connery era items on display:

    ^I realize the golf ball is not accurate- it's just a stand-in for now. The matchbook cover is very close to what's seen in the film, just some minor differences. The beer bottle is a vintage original, not one of those newer replicas. The glass is very thick and heavy. It is one of my favourite items in the collection, and may even be the oldest prop I own.

    ^Some DAF stuff in the middle there. The casino chip is legit- pretty hard to find these days. That's a concept sketch by Ken Adam underneath.

    28981202878_bdaaaa765f_b.jpg

    ^Blofeld's tape recorder and satellite control tape. The recorder, sadly, is the largest prop I own. I started working on the cassette long ago, and finally completed it a few months back.

    42805299792_ea428b393c_b.jpg

    ^Some of the gizmos need minor maintenance- the YOLT radio is missing the red tip on the aerial. It was also missing a screw on either side, but I've fixed that. Otherwise, it's in pretty good shape. I have the 'revised edition' phrase book, not the correct one. Regarding Helga's lipstick bomb- the item was sold with many different designs on the lid. I believe this one here has the correct pattern seen in the film.

    42135959384_f47a90b126_b.jpg

    ^The bug finder needs a bit of fixing, the leather has come unglued.

    42805295752_a21ed68ef9_b.jpg

    ^some NSNA stuff in front. The rocket pen is too slim, still, the lid carries the same details as on the Montblanc. That was one of the first props I made all those years ago. The caviar jar can be seen in Bond's suitcase at Shrublands.

    No TB stuff to show though...I seriously need to do something about that! Thanks for looking.

    Awesome gear and displays there, ggl! I was so close to buying those binoculars, but couldn't find confirmation on the leather pattern type seen in the film. Maybe I should just grab a pair regardless, because they do look great. Well done on scoring the original Tasco box and leather case for the Minox, amazing stuff indeed. The camera is one I will have to save up for!

    So cool to see you following my photos with your own- I had hoped to motivate more members here to share their prop collection. I also intend to post more regularly from now on. Cheers.

    Awesome cameras there! I love grouping the props this way, according to type.

    Sweet book display too. I could've bought the heraldry book, but the dust cover was too damaged along the spine. Oh well, there'll be another chance, in time. Yours looks in great condition though. Thanks for showing Lupe's book. I remember seeing it in the film and intending to catalogue it, but somehow never got around to it. I hadn't identified it either, cheers.

    @ggl007 You motivated me to finally print out the x-ray photo, and a couple of other goodies. I'll post some pics of my camera collection soon!

    Cameras & related accessories:

    42245008484_f5b596fd1b_b.jpg

    I assure you it is quite genuine...

    Except that the vital technical information has been taken out.

    ^Two of these film boxes can be seen in Q's bag of tricks, and 3-4 in exhibit photos. This is not a genuine box (difficult to find), but my custom mock-up, with details closer to what was seen in the film- including Spanish translations and the expiry date is an easter egg reflecting LTK's release date and Bond film #16.

    ^In one exhibit photo online, you can spot a second x-ray photo (albeit a slightly different image from what we've seen) inside the cartridge as I have done here.

    Incredible collections, guys! @QBranch, what brand/model is that tape recorder?

    Thanks, guys!

    @Torgeirtrap The recorder is a Philips N2205, and the cassette is a Philips C90. Good luck with your search.

    Thanks for the link! Was curious about that recorder, as I'm sure I've seen it before somewhere - not only in DAF. Maybe it will pop up on an online auction or something.

    Sadly I have no Bond props to post. There are a few items I might try and get if I find them, though!
    ________
    By the way, @QBranch - looking at that YOLT Sony radio; what radios have been used in the Bond films? I can remember the Sony of course, and this one from DAF:

    The DAF recorder pops up from time to time on eBay and is usually quite affordable.
    what radios have been used in the Bond films? I can remember the Sony of course, and this one from DAF:
    DN: unidentified transistor radio (cream/brown?) (seen on table in Bond's hotel room)
    GF: unidentified transistor radio (seen on bedside table in Bond's hotel room)
    YOLT: Sony 2FA-24W automatic tuning transistor radio 1966 (seen in Aki's car)
    DAF: Philips L6X38 T Transworld de Luxe Antoinette transistor radio (Blofeld's desk)
    AVTAK: Philips D8734 Boombox stereo system (Bond plays the Main Strike cassette on this)
    TLD: Philips 'ghetto blaster' boombox (gadget seen in Q's lab)
    DAD: unidentified (maybe custom-made) military/tactical radio (seen in Bond's surfboard)

    I'm sure there are many more- those are just the ones I've catalogued. Then there are a few Walkmans- two have inbuilt radios.

    Nice! I'll look out for one. Could be a nice little thing to have. :-)

    Thanks for the list! Had forgot about the DN/GF ones. Shame there isn't a better view of them. I have a bit of a soft spot for vintage stuff, particularly old radios and audio stuff. That DN radio does look a bit familiar, much like the same style of those old Braun transistor radios:

    MI6 computer disc from DAD- you can spot several in Moneypenny's office, during both virtual reality sequences. Shown with MI6 letterhead circa DAD (& TWINE?) and ECG results- part of Bond's medical report following his imprisonment in North Korea.

    Just picked up the binoculars complete with box, as well as the ice pick - the latter which I hope makes it through customs! *eyes rolling*

    Fingers crossed!

    @QBranch ,I imagine any future Bond fan grandchild of yours will marvel at all your stuff.
  • Hi, this is my first post - long time lurker. I was really gutted about 4 years ago on eBay. Someone was doing a house clearance for a deceased relative who had worked at Pinewood. There were quite a few Bond props and I was outbid by about £1.50 on the painting of Stacey Sutton's father from AVTAK. Still annoys me now how close I'd been to winning it!

    Welcome to the site, that would of been a great item to have. I collect film memorabilia myself though its never occurred to me to look for replica Bond items.

    Welcome to the forum, NSNA! Spewing about the painting. That's one of the few props I haven't honed in on yet and would be cool to get a better look at. Likewise, I've been left gutted in the past after missing out on a few hard-to-find Bond props. Nothing production-made, though! Do you have much of a collection? You should share some pics here, or in the collection thread.
    @QBranch ,I imagine any future Bond fan grandchild of yours will marvel at all your stuff.
    Cheers mate. I hope I'm still around then, to keep them from selling it all :))
