The following Christmas, I bought both it and the DB5 for my little brother. But of course, even if I was 18 at the time, I played with them as well. But after all, didn't we all ?
The latter brings back memories of when I should've left things alone. I played with them and looking back I could've had some nice collectibles.
Back in early 1980, the toy store at my mall put the Corgi Aston Martin, Lotus, Stromberg helicopter and Drax helicopter out all marked down, so I snatched them up and took them out. Same with the MR shuttle model. Later on that year, my mom found the Bond and Holly MR action figures and I opened those too and who knows what else.
The one I really should've kept in the package was the Corgi OP jeep and horse trailer with the Acrostar jet, one of the hardest pieces to find now.
Almost forgot : in the "Corgi Junior" section (smaller cars than in the main range), if you scroll down, you might see an interesting model : a "Plane Car" that looks almost like Scaramanga's in TMWTGG (serial number 2009). And of course the Lotus Esprti got its "Junior" version (although without the missiles).
And in the "Corgi Junior" section, we see that :
Funny thing, it was also in this catalogue that appeared the only Australian TV series to get die-cast models of its vehicle : Chopper Squad. Even if the colours were not accurate on the catalogue (they were closer to the series IRL), that still brings back memories of many sunday afternoons (yes, it aired in France) :
Still, funny to see Dan Dare's ship on the catalogue.
Sweet. I've seen some for sale on ebay a while ago, they were about 40 euros. I think.
I've got the DB5 from CR and the DBS from QOS.
And I do have a lot of other 1:43 scale models too. :\">
Man toyline (HM = Prince Adam , Merman = Stinkor , Beastman = Moss Man)
Speaking oc miniature cars, the postal sorting center where I work has organized an exhibition of pictures from the USA. So, I decided to loan them the american cars that are in my collection (remember, the James Bond Cars Collection ?), to put in a display case whuile the photo exhibition is going on. Some thirty cars in all, from the LaSalle hearse in DN to the Ford Crown Victoria from CR '06). Let's hope all goes well.
What with Corgi? Yet ANOTHER DB5?!!!! =))
Corgi must LOVE EON for putting that DB5 in all those films...
Hope we get the Valhalla, but I totally expect just the DB5 and the V8.
You can guarantee the DB5 now seeing as it has a different car number plate! X_X
And in 1985, just the DB5, drowned among other cars, so that I almost missed it.
To finish, I'd like to point out that there were two models of the DB 5 done during this period. The first one had all the gadgets, including the tyre slashers and the revolving license plates, the second one had only the machine guns and the ejector seat. Wonder why.
I just look at Corgi today they release 2020 next year/month January 6th for new model cars including James Bond as well No time to Die Aston Martins cars. So not long. 1 More day to go If corgi has develop on their Catalog on anything No time to Die Aston Martins or are they going to delay
