The figures don't look that bad - you probably just notice them a bit more because the car is a convertable. Also if you have a look at stills from the film, or indeed the film itself you will see that there is no front licence plate on the car when Bond is driving it.
For example have a look at the stills on:
As for the rear of the car I'm sure that you can see a licence plate on the rear of the car when Wade speeds off it it - but I can't say for certain as It's been ages since I've seen Goldeneye.
I would keep the faulty one, maybe it will become something like a blue Mauritius.
Bond figure sticking out of the tank is a disappointment, and would have really been a welcomed inclusion. shame they didn't add it. as it is, it just looks like a generic tank model.
it's going for silly money on ebay, i'm not selling mine though.
i take it your DBS has the correct writing on the base?
i haven't opened any of my models, but they do look of quite a high standard considering their relatively modest price.
it's silly the way on the 1st inside page of the magazines, it always says "your model of [insert car model] for free with this issue".
obviously the magazine only costs pennies to make, it's the model we're actually paying the majority of the cost for, so in reality we can consider the £7.99 pricetag is for the model and we get the magazine for free.
I think, that they are doing this for tax reasons. In Germany a magazine is taxed with 7%and a model car has 19% tax. I am pretty sure, the same thing exists in the UK.
