    So looks like Tier 3 (Dr No) were pushed back to November from October. I would expect Tier 4 announcement and pre-orders around September assuming a once yearly release and allowing for things shifting back a month or two.

    I think the Dr No release will end up into the New Year? Just a feeling?

    Nice to see a clearer shot of the Dalton Figure which was previously out of focus on a shelve in previous shots from BCS, with a Desmond Llewelyn Q head sculpt. Hopefully this means a tier 4 announcement is imminent. Question is whether this is the Living Daylights Bratislava Bond with Walther WA2000 rifle and lapels that turn into sniper mode or LTK Casino Bond with Fingerprint camera rifle and rappelling cummerbund. Judging from the hair my money is on the former which begs the question why they would choice to release him with Q rather than a Necros/Kara figure.

    Imagine all those characters in the same movie, and with those height differences. The title would be LSD Trip.

    Well, his bad side is a dangerous place to be.

    I think their figures are excellent I'd buy all the 1/6th scale if I could but expensive so will just stick with the Bond ones.

    For anyone interested in Doctor Who, i saw a superb figure of Jon Pertwee on their website!
    They do indeed produce high quality figures, but the prices! Ouch!!

    There's something to this statement indeed.

    Q is family. His uncle.

    Have they asked Pleasences estate then ?

    Its always a possibility if $$$ is offered (wrestler M$M : "Everybody has a price")

    Well you would assume possibly Q and Dalton could be the next duo of Bond figures?

    Kinda sad that there isn't an official Daniel Craig figure in this scale. Plenty of unofficial ones in this scale and the only official one we have of Craig are the funko pop figures.

    All to do with image rights as I understand it. As i met the Big Chief staff at the Memorabila show last year, as this is why they have been unable to do any Brosnan models thus far?

    I think it is because Craig doesn't like them. So they cant licence his likeness. Which is a shame. Corgi did some a decade or so ago but they were never released.

    Why would Craig not like his likeness being used? Doesn't he ever dream of having his own action figure?

    Yeah. Exactly. How odd. I get that he is a very private person, but come on now...

    As mentioned, one of the reasons is because they couldn't get the rights for his likeness.

    You would think EON had the rights for his likeness in his contract because it was officially announced that the corgi figures were to be made ?

    If it were that simple, Big Chief Studios would've done a Craig figure by now. I suppose the actor himself has the final say on whether he wants his likeness to be used to make figures. Hence the oddity of why Craig doesn't want his likeness used.
