  • Very pleased to see that a second wave is on the way, putting to rest any rumours that Funko have lost the licence, or that Brosnan/Craig era models are being blocked for some reason. In fact, 7 of the 9 announced models are from the modern era. …
  • Today is turning into an expensive day! Two tickets booked for the Casino Royale in concert performance, and now this! 0BradyM0Bondfanatic7 wrote: » I'm sure they'll do Moonraker and the others in good time. Can't wait to see what Bond's battl…
  • Just bought two of the cheap seats at the very top for the 2.30pm performance. Never attend these kinds of things due to the expense of travelling from Cornwall, but thought I'd treat myself. Now I've got 4 months to find someone to come watch it wi…

  • I was talking about the lack of Bond Pop figures with the owner of my local comic book store yesterday. She only have a small store, but has Pop figures everywhere based on so many different TV and Movie properties. James Bond appears to be a major …
  • That sums up Corgi unfortunately - re-releases of the same old cars rather than trying some new ones out. Little Nellie will no doubt be released in special commemorative 50th anniversary packaging. I wonder if they will do it in the smaller scale t…
  • I was initially excited about this announcement, hearing that EON were allowing some new collectibles to be made that weren't just another set of model cars. However, having taken a look at the prices Big Chief Studios charge for their current figur…

  • If you're in the UK, I've just ordered the SPECTRE edition of the James Bond Archives from WHSmith. It's £33.74, but they are doing 10% off this weekend. You can also get cashback if you use TopCashBack or Quidco. I've just been on LiveChat to Amazo…

  • I thought it's now the best time to bump up this thread, seeing as the publicity campaign for SPECTRE is starting to ramp up. Since last posting, I've managed to get a copy of Loaded March 2015, which featured Lea Seydoux and a ranking of some of th…
  • I think GF is still the best out of the ones I have. Out of the new batch being released, CR is by far the best.
  • Very happy, just won the German CR steelbook on eBay for £10.99, still sealed! That now makes GF, GE, CR, SF and QOS on PS3, with the 9 new steelbooks on preorder. Just the QOS DVD release to go and then I'll have all of the steelbooks released so f…
  • I too have preordered the new steelbooks. I just couldn't resist, despite owning multiple versions of the same films, like many of you here I suspect. This will be my fifth copy of some of the films, I think! If you're in the UK, Quantum of Solac…
  • I've produced a trailer analysis and breakdown video if anyone is interested in watching. I've tried to comment on as much of the trailer as possible, scene by scene: Like most of you here, I'm extremely excited about the film. I think the tw…
  • I will be going for my second visit next Monday for a half term trip, having visited in April. I was the very lucky winner of MI6's competition which included a stay in a hotel. And as an extra treat, I am booked into the Southampton IMAX on Sunday …

  • Well, I found out the event today was open to the public, and it was advertised that the car would arrive at 2pm. However, at 11.30am, it was announced on Facebook that the car was there from 11am. I turned up to see it an hour later but it had alre…
  • I'm a bit confused with this tour. Are these events open to the public? I contacted the Eden Project to see if there were any events taking place surrounding the arrival of the Aston or if it was purely a photo opportunity, and was told it was not o…
  • For those who were interested in the HMV preorder with the art cards but were put off by the extra cost, they have now matched most of the other sites at £90.
  • Still going with it. And I agree that certain issues that come with very few parts ie. the issues that come with only a tyre, are not worth £7. But in the end, the overall model will be worth £600. As long as the magazines are still as good as ever,…
  • I've always wanted to do a back to back Bondathon, but I really don't think I could manage staying up for that long. I did manage to watch all the films over the course of 6/7 weeks. I travelled to uni by train, and always took my portable DVD play…
  • I think that's a homemade diorama. The figures are from the Airfix kit where you built your own James Bond and Oddjob models.
  • The latest addition to my collection, and for a bargain price too: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=230606700866&ssPageName=ADME:X:RTQ:GB:1123. I haven't got it set up yet, but I have a space ready for it. Not strictly a …
  • Martinis, Girls and Guns and The Man who Saved Britain are currently sitting on my shelf waiting to be read. Another new edition to my collection is The Battle for Bond. I've been buying a lot of books on eBay recently, since discovering there are m…
  • The publishers have vowed that all subscribers will complete their models, guaranteed. Judging by the Facebook page, the DB5 mag is extremely popular, so I can't see them finishing it early.
  • The DB5 collection, particularly on their Facebook page (where member's of the customer service assist with problems), have been more than clear about the total cost. And it doesn't take a genius to work out that the stated 85 issues at £6.99 a go w…
  • They have confirmed it will stop at 110. Any more, and I'll probably complain. As much as I like this collection, they must decide at a point to stop and leave it there.
