Many people here have been wondering if there will be any new toys or memorabilia released this year in time for the 50th anniversary. Well, I for one would like to start a thread where fans can offer up suggestions on collectibles for those who frequent here and other Bond websites.
For years I have been collecting Corgi and other collectible Bond vehicles. One vehicle I would love to see done is the Interceptor rocket from You Only Live Twice. Add that to a diorama of the volcano. Since I'm on the topic of dioramas I would love to see other villainous lairs such as Piz Gloria, Kananga's hideout, and the Liparus tanker. Since Corgi has released the DB5 in numerous incarnations and boxes, I would love them to recreate the Thunderball version equip with a squirt gun function that would simulate the water hose effect from the pre-credit sequence. The DB5 one they released years ago with just the Thunderball title and no tire slashers was very lame.
Also, I appreciate Factory Entertainment for producing replicas of Bond props such as Scaramanga's golden gun and Blofeld's ring. They plan to release gadgets such as the Moonraker laser gun and the attache case in the near future. I would love them to recreate the Signature gun from Licence To Kill, Moonraker's henchman jumpsuits, the Octopussy Fabergé Egg and The Living Daylights Keyring finder.
Monopoly was kind enough to listen to the fans here and at CommanderBond.net and came out with the Ultimate Bond Monopoly game - a great collectible. Activision is preparing to release OO7 Legends. I for one would love to see them do an entire video game based on Thunderball, You Only Live Twice, OHMSS, and Diamonds Are Forever. Literally offer the fans to play OO7 vs SPECTRE. Hey, if they can put Blofeld in the new GoldenEye game, they can do these games too.
So have at it. Come up with your suggestions and who knows, maybe a company representive might take you up on your suggestion.
