    Sure, but unfortunately they haven’t really put their best foot forward with that. I’d rather shell out cash for a DN Connery or a LTK Dalton, CR Craig than an Oddjob or Goldfinger. Their initial line choices have been very strange, hence why they are now selling them as 2 for the price of 1.

    This came from EON Productions. They wanted the 'classic' films for the fans. It's a shame the fans don't seem to want them or save up for them. If they were a success everything else would be made in time.

    Bond from Dr. No will come in time. I hope it's made. As a fan if I could only have one, this is it.

    They only figure I think would sell with the general public is Daniel Craig in black dinner jacket. Everything else is so niche.

    Well I hope they haven't screwed the line up? As I am paid up and await my LALD set. Not a fan of their launch pad idea? So I guess we will have to wait and see?

    What is the bloody point? These figures take ages to produce, ages to send out and the collection will take so long to put together and be so inconsistant it's a waste of the licence.

    There are (sofar) 24 films in the series. Big chief have just about covered two of them. So we should have the entire collection by 2040 with a bit of luck. Good stuff.

    Given the price, I was only thinking about maybe getting the Bonds and not the supporting characters. Was really hoping for a Craig and was waiting on that. Oh, well.

    The initial sketch heads of Dalton, Q and Grant are fantastic. Not sure how to share it? But will try now? Bare with me but hopefully they will appear on MI6 shortly as only just received them myself.

    No head shots of Blofeld or Dr No.

    Alright. Now, I'm overhyped! This is electifyingly outstanding news!

    I know they are expensive but they will be added to my collection. Which I will share with you all soon. In photo's only though! Lol!!!
  • It appears that they're hinting at a Moonraker and Thunderball themed release as I noticed Q Branch's wrist darts as well as Bond's jetpack.

    Fantastic news! Take my money now for DN Connery and TLD Tim!

    It is reassuring to know that talk of the line being dropped is just that, talk, and also that Dalton is joining the line this early on.

    Just need a Lazenby, Brosnan and Craig now!

    Big Cheif have slashed their Goldfinger prices which is fantastic. If all their Bond figures came in around the £150 mark I would most definitely pick them up. At the moment the Rog LALD figure is almost the same price as one months rent!
    Does anyone here think they may reconsider and drop their Bond prices?

    Unlikely. The prices of 1:6 figures has been steadily climbing. That's one reason I don't buy Hot Toys figures anymore. £250+ is crazy.
  • Posts: 912
    Those prices are absolutely extortionate. I know that they’re high quality figures but that’s just way too much.

    I would be interested to know what peoples jobs are, that they can afford to buy Hot Toys figures time and time again.

    I've bought a lot of Phicen/TB League figures but they tend to sell for around £150-170. Give or take a little here and there.

    Well, they're not civil servants, that's for sure. I've got three Hot Toys, with the first being a present. All we purchased with the pre-order layaway option. I was tempted to get Connery, but I think I'd rather stick with Bond lifestyle options I can use every day.

    Following yesterday’s update on Bond 25 we are delighted to share sneak peek images of the figures from the first James Bond film Dr. No. Bond himself is attired in his tuxedo from the now iconic casino sequence and the titular villain Dr. No is outfitted in his Nehru suit.

    They look good but I already own the Sideshow versions so reallycsnt even justify considering purchasing one.

    To be honest, the Sideshow versions look like rubber ducks compared to those. But, that's just me.

    Agreed, they haven’t aged well, but it’s a costly upgrade. I reckon these two figures will be a total price of close to £600?

    No arguments from me on that front. Yes, the two of them would be about that price.

    I've been saving up for the Connery Bond from Dr. No for a while now, so it's the first thing I'll go for. Then, the rest.

    Really pains me to see that Connery one since I already have the GF version. Don't know if I can justify picking up another one of the same actor even if the headsculpt is different...
