    Cheers Thunderfinger, after a pretty naff day at work, that was a huge unexpected uplift to the day.

    Yes I am working on it, maybe a bit of a challenge? :)) It certainly will not be hidden away that's for sure.

    Last week, I bought and assembled a new display case so I could have all my Bond novels in one place, instead of in two rooms as before. Now it's done. I also added a few reference books (Thrilling Cities, The Diamond Smugglers, The James Bond Dossier, For Bond Lovers Only and Roger Moore's LALD diary. The whole collection takes three shelves, but it looks nifty. And it feed up space in my display case to put some odds and ends (the Thunderbirds are Go vehicles, a Dalek and a Cyberman, and other cars).

    That is a spectacular present @RogueAgent ! That must take pride of place in your collection. Will give an extra dimension to the DAF theme song whenever you hear it now!

    Thinking of selling my small bond car collection. I picked up the first fifteen with magazines a couple of years ago quite cheaply. But they take up room (can only imagine how much room I'd need for the whole collection!) I will sell them locally. First I will read through the magazines.

    Have released I'm not one for the Bond cars and toys. I like the LALD tarot cards and Casino Royale poker chips and especially love all the books written about the series or Fleming but for some reason the cars and toys don't really do it for me. Any other collectors not into certain 007 merchandise?

    In my appartment, the whole collection takes four display cases, each having a width of 67 cm, so some 268 cm (108 cm in height). Yes, it takes a lot of space. But it was worth it.

    Yes, especially these days. Back in the day, I would collect about anything with a 007 logo on it. Today, it's the opposite and I'm very picky and for various reasons.

    For one, I became a big fan when there was little merchandise back in the early '80s, especially here in the U.S. We got the Corgi cars, magazines, adaptations of a film in paperback or a reissue or in comic form, maybe a few other things. It was manageable and not too expensive. Then in the '90s the merchandising grew and grew and in the past 20 years even more so.

    During that time, I took on other responsibilities such as having a family and all that, so there wasn't always as much to devote to Bond collecting, although that's always been a main hobby. Now I've found myself with so much stuff and realize there's some of it I just don't really care for anymore. Another problem is I don't really have a place to display my collection as most of it is in a storage unit collecting dust.

    It seems today that there are WAY too many die-cast cars and trading card sets. So I don't collect those any longer along with action figures. The thing with all of those is they just don't know when to stop with them. How many DB5 variations do I need on a shelf or cards in a binder that I already have?

    My weakness is magazines and publications. I have hundreds of these. Back in 2008 when Total Film or Empire put out a series of covers with each of the films on it and I got all but 4-5. That was a fun pursuit. Then when a new movie comes out I hunt for coverage and try to collect the fanzines as well.

    I wouldn't call myself a collector, but I've got my hands on various stuff the last decade or so, without really intending to. Outside books and DVD's I have some comic books; both adaptations of the films and comic strips collections/magazines. Then there's a few video games, a poster (TB - but only a close up of Bond escaping the château), and a few bits of CR memorabilia (a lobby card styled photo set and a button pin with Casino Royale written on it). Also got a radio-controlled Aston Martin Vanquish as a gift years ago.

    I could probably go without the CR memorabilia stuff and the radio-controlled car, but I doubt I'll get rid of it anytime soon. I know I won't try to collect things like this in the future, as there's no available space for it.
