    it would be nice to see all the Astons driving around London like they did a few yrs back.

    I expect they'll probably dust one off to sit outside the Albert Hall for the Sound of 007 concert.

    Every time EON releases/sells new merchandise for thousands of dollars, a spy loses his silenced PPK...
    Theory11's $15 Bond Playing Cards have been the best value Bond release in recent memory, IMO. And the Lego DB5s, so fun.

    Not completely related, but does anyone know where I can get good quality large posters for the films?

    Your best bet is ebay. Pyramid Posters print the large ones (60 x 91.5cm) but other than some NTTD ones, theyre out of print atm.

    Thank you @Mallory, was thinking of getting the classic Thunderball poster for my room.

    It kills me as such a huge Bond fan that I can't afford any of the new merchandise they put out

    You and I both. The few Instagram posts from the 007 Store I've seen leave me disillusioned every time.

    115.00 for a snow globe.......7K for a pinball machine. Sure, fine.

    Even the DVD/Blu-ray/4K prices are absurd.

    The theory11 playing cards, and the Lego DB5s for my money are the best affordable Bond collectibles. I guess there are a lot of toy cars people probably enjoy as well.

    I bought the white henley from NTTD, and the Riviera polo from CR, but it's hard to imagine spending too much more on any individual Bond item. Bond Peacoat from SF... maybe one day. The clothes are a different story, though, because you're paying for an item from a company for more or less what it's worth.

    Back when it came out, I had my eye on a ton of Bond's attire from QoS that I was so in love with but never could afford. If only.

    Recently bought a lookalike black ribbed shawl collar cardigan like his from Mathis’ villa from Banana Republic, very happy with it. The Tom Ford one is like 6,000 or something insane. His casual clothes in QOS were phenomenal.

    Yeah I was truly obsessed at the time. I even found those Oliver Peoples shades in a store one time for like $500. Thanks but no thanks.

    Yeah I almost pulled the trigger on the Tom Ford aviators, but it was probably wise not to do so.

    Can you even begin to imagine the 007 swag collections of Barb and Mikey. Boggles the mind.

    It is hard to imagine. Did you ever read James Martin’s article about when he used to go out with Ms Broccoli? She would give him Aston Martins and Picassos - they’re on another level of rich! :)

    I remember reading that. The lunatic felt emasculated because Barbara got the DBS from either CR or QOS for him (which I think he had a hand in picking the colour of) and he couldn't cope with it =)) it's not like he doesn't love cars!

    Yeah I did think that painted him in a rather bad light, he seemed to not be able to cope with not being the breadwinner. I'm not a big fan of his to be honest...

    For whatever reason I didn't take that interview to be about him being uncomfortable with not being the breadwinner, just specifically about receiving gifts worth $500,000 :))
    To each his own, I likely would have accepted the car, but it's not something I look down on the guy for personally. Also I think he was a fairly successful chef in his own right?

    Oh yeah, don't worry about him: he's got a big house full of cars (literally: he keeps a few in his kitchen and I'm sure I remember seeing he had a motorbike on his upstairs landing or something, bit odd... ).

    The 60th has really put me in the mood to rewatch the Everything or Nothing documentary, does anyone know where I'd be able to watch it?

    It is available to buy on DVD but not sure if it's available to stream or download as well.

    According to JustWatch.com (which collects catalogs from all streaming or VOD sites), it's available for rent or buy on a few places.

    Shame, it was available with the Bond films last time they were on Prime, but it isn't this time.
