    Yeah, I had them all at one point, AutoArt White Lotus and Sub Lotus..the Turbo with ski rack, the Toyota, DB5, all of the DAD series, Z3 and Z8..now down to just the DB5 and Z3 for space considerations.

    Wow, such a pity. Now these are collectible that later will become very expensive. Especially if you keep them inside the box.

    DB10 ships next week sometime from UK, can't wait. Man, usually these come out before the movie. This is going to arrive just as the DVD comes out. Corgi #FTW!

    Looks lovely @=bg= :-). But for me the size is simply too small :-). With 1/18 scale you can at least have a more detailed look inside the car. It also feels 'heavier', more 'expensive'.

    Any news on the 1:18? Do we think that it will have any special features....after all it is very expensive if not.

    Big Bad Toy Store says "Estimated to Arrive March 2016." Which means July. 180.00? Insane. No way.

    I have the AutoArt Goldfinger DB5 in posts above. There was a glaring mistake on it - the numberplate is from GoldenEye not Goldfinger and a photo on the box is also from GoldenEye.

    The quality control is abysmal.

    Mwah ha ha ha ha. People have even forgotten the DVD! And these aren't supposed to be in the USA til May!!! If I was the EON marketing dept, I'd be rather....displeased.

    Do you reckon Sam Mendes is actually a Corgi shareholder? They'd certainly go under if they couldn't lazily knock out some more DB5s every time a Bond film comes around so he is a godsend to them. Although this time their sloth knows no bounds as their SP one will be out pretty much a calendar year after the film was released (because call me a cynic but I don't see a July deadline being met).

    Corgi are as embarassing as Kenner and the infamous 'early bird certificate' for the first Christmas after Star Wars. The difference is they only made that mistake once. Corgi think its a genius marketing strategy.

    When I went to my favourite Diecast car shop I saw the Hotwheels classic Aston Martin DB5 yes it was Goldfinger I don't how much it cost but I saw it. Still no sign of The SPECTRE Aston Martin DB10 yet. By the time it release it be next year.

    Does anyone know if somebody made an 'Autoart' or 'Minichamps' quality level 1:18 scale version of the TSWLM Lotus or the OHMSS DBS? These are two cars I'd like to add to my collection, but I want something of a high calibre, which means no NOREV or mediocre version.

    Thanks @Mrcoggins. I have yet to see a decent version of the TSWLM Espirit and that's the one that I really want. There's something about the simplicity of that version which I like, and of course its iconic status.

    I seen Website @Agent99, But I see what returning. I got enough of Aston Martin DB5 already. But question is what different between the First Aston Martin DB10 to the upcoming because of the product code, first CCO8001 & upcoming CCO8002?
  • That sums up Corgi unfortunately - re-releases of the same old cars rather than trying some new ones out. Little Nellie will no doubt be released in special commemorative 50th anniversary packaging. I wonder if they will do it in the smaller scale that the GF and TB anniversary DB5's came out in, as well as a limited edition model. Interesting that the Lotus Esprit hasn't been listed as an anniversary edition.

    I'd imagine the other cars are going to be released as part of the same set, with new packaging as this hasn't happened since 2009. I see they've really mixed things up with the DB5, as it's listed as the GE version (which is conveniently the same as the SF and SPECTRE models).

    My hope with the new DB10 is that they might actually put an ejector seat in it, like the good old days, but it doesn't look like this will be the case from the picture.

    By looking through their online catalog, I see they have reprised some Dinky Toys models, mostly the Thunderbirds (and FAB 1).
