Pains me just to write that. I could probably sell the box on its own for a couple hundred bucks on eBay if it was still in good condition.
Luckily I was 12 when I got into Bond - so most of my 007 stuff was respected and remains intact (I have plenty of Star Wars, Indiana Jones and Batman horror stories from my earlier years however!)
I cut up the Living Daylights Starlog magazine and about ten years ago I threw out a bunch of Bond paperbacks. They were mostly continuation novels from mid-era Gardner but a couple of early pan Fleming books too. I ended up buying them all again - but that wasn't too costly.
Pierce Brosnan's Aston Martin Vanquish endured back in 2015.

Well, at least you didn't really destroy it then!

Was it ever awkward for you explaining the charges for your Bondage magazines on your credit card statements?
I bet. He was a Simple Minds fan as well, and subscribed to the SM magazine, too.
I did this too! With Humbrol model aeroplane paint. I've since upgraded to a slightly less tatty one.
I've thrown away a lot of boxes from Bond toys and so on, and I regret that a bit.
On the other side of the coin, I have hung on to empty crisp packets and chocolate bar wrappers...
Does this version have the map main menu? I might pick it up for the eventuality that it does crap out.
Not necessarily--it could have been a magnetic sticker. I know several people who had them.
No. In fact, the check I made (didn't have a debit card then) were made to the seller (a comic book shop in Paris), not to the magazine.
I do recall being glad finding an older copy of Bondage while surfing eBay at work a decade or so ago and getting a funny look from a colleague and had to explain it was a James Bond fan magazine.
Will you 3D print it?
The first Ian Fleming Bond novels that I ever bought I found at a summer fair in a local town on Saturday 5th August 1995. They were the 1960s Pan spider's web blue edition of Dr. No and the Pan film tie-in edition of You Only Live Twice.
Sadly and inexplicably a few years ago I found the YOLT tie-in edition lying below a window in my sitting room. It had become displaced during the redecoration of my bedroom when stuff had been cleared out and moved around. It seems that a slug had gotten into the house below the front door (don't ask) and had proceeded to eat away parts of the back cover of the book. It had left a few kind of irregular jigsaw pieces missing from the back cover, along the outer edge. I was of course gutted as it was one of my first Bond novels. Happily, I've since found two good condition replacements in the wild for this particular edition though I believe I still have the damaged YOLT tie-in novel somewhere too. Nostalgia and sentimentality clearly dies hard.
