Okay, hardly vintage but a great Bond collectible none the less!
When Corgi Classics released their Definitive Bond Collection at Taylor's Bar in Soho, London in November 2000, 60 units of this cheap looking piece of tat were produced. Appearing to be 4 of the production models clipped to a piece of thin card with a blured image of a 271 DB5. Not a patch on the Corgi presentaions of the 1960's and 1970's however first impressions are deceiving. The Lotus Turbo was sprayed a different bronze to the production version & its bumpers were painted black where the production models were unpainted so tat but rare!

Factory fresh 1965 Gilbert 16012 first issue Oddjob doll in Butler box. Interestingly like the illusive tuxedo box Sears James Bond doll was manufactured in Portugal. The second issue Karate box was made in Hong Kong.

I'm not a fan of modern Corgi diecasts but this 2006 release ticked all the boxes. Sold through Corgi Goldstar stockists only 200 units were produced of this quality item although the packaging and certificate were done a bit on the cheap. One can only imagine what the value of the piece would have been if someone at Corgi had had the forsight to give them out to VIP guests at the Casino Royale Royal Premiere?
The incredible 1977 Japanese Edai Grip licensed diecast Lotus Esprit & the rarely seen operating instructions printed on the bottom of the box.
Roadgoing and underwater box art for the 1977 Edai Grip Lotus Esprit licensed model kit. The model replicated the features of the diecast with the addition of a battery operated motor, the missiles however were relocated to the front bumber instead of the correct bonnet location.
Aurora 585-249 factory fresh 1965 Aston Martin Super Spycar model kit. Effectively an unlicensed James Bond Aston Martin DB5 with full movie gadgets with the addition of whitewall tyres!. Stunning box art with a 16 page instruction manual dated 1964 give a hint to what this could have been if Airfix had not had the license to produce the car in all its 1964 screen glory.
