    Its a cracking bit of artwork pal but I couldn't help but get distracted by the advert for a get-rich-quick scheme of pimping a ho out.

    I loved the look of this, was going to bid but knew it would go for a fairly high price. Glad it's gone to a good home though. Keep up the good work Donk.

    Well I've got the real Tow Sled prop so why not have the toy one too?

    A rare 1960s Imai of Japan Thunderball James Bond Series 5 Underwater Scooter model kit featuring a great but not very accurate representation of the Tow Sled on the box lid. The model itself also only captures a flavour of the actual filming prop -{

    Now before we all get too excited...it's fake or to be precise the backing card is :(, however I can safely say it is the only "fake" example of a 1966 Gilbert James Bond backing card this collector has seen (if only the word "fake" was not in this sentence!).

    1446200927093091.jpg

    Someone has gone to a great deal of time & effort to produce this card using as reference a black & white image from the Gilbert Toy catalogue. If only they had studied the image a bit closer. First off, top left Beretta is spelt wrong & the word pistol has been omitted. Secondly, top right under Goldfinger the words movie & scenes? have been omitted. Neither of these details are clear in the original 1966 publicity image. Those who know this Donkey know that Donkey hates fake however I thought this would be a useful exercise to point out these little errors & on a personal note this example will do until a mega bucks original example surfaces. If you have a backing card without the aforementioned omissions?....you know who to call and it aint Ghostbusters! :D

    This is the only known example of an original carded hand puppet from the 1966 Gilbert Toys catalogue/catalog -{

    I thought the 'F' word was forbidden on the Modest Collection Thread :o

    Thought I'd show you the "f-word" backings that I put together a while back to display my Gilbert set.

    I did manage to spell Beretta right I think....Not sure about everything else, but I will accept all observations.

    An incredibly rare "piece of paper tat" survivor from 1964. An original Goldfinger ticket application form for The Royal Premiere held at the Odeon Theatre, Leicester Square, London on Thursday 17th September 1964. The only example this collector has ever seen. What makes it so rare is for it to have survived for 52 years its recipient would have made the decision not to purchase a ticket for this prestigious once in a lifetime screening with ticket prices ranging from 15 guineas down to 10 shillngs and sixpence and then decide not tear up and bin the form which is pretty amazing all being considered. It goes without saying Donkey absolutely loves this -{

    Yet another incredibly rare "piece of paper tat" survivor from 1964. An original unused Goldfinger ticket for The Royal Premiere held at the Odeon Theatre, Leicester Square, London on Thursday 17th September 1964. The only example this collector has ever seen with the Box Office stub still attached. What makes it so rare is for it to have survived for 52 years its recipient would have made the decision to purchase a 2 Guinaes ticket for this prestigious once in a lifetime screening with ticket prices ranging from 15 guineas down to 10 shillngs and sixpence and then decide not to attend the screening. It goes without saying Donkey absolutely loves this -{

    Far Up!..Far Out!..Far More!.....More uber rare paper tat!
    An original 1969 ticket application form for the Royal Premiere screening of On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. The only one this collector has ever seen. So rare that it did not make it to the pages of Charles Helfenstein’s excellent The Making of On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. Unlike the Goldfinger Royal Premiere ticket application form the recipient not only kept the form for posterity but also attended the screening at The Odeon Theatre, Leicester Square, London on Thursday 18th December 1969. Ticket prices ranged from 1 Guinea to 25 Guineas.
    The accompanying ticket was once the property of a Lady, who purchased the most expensive seat at 25 guineas situated in the prestigious Royal Circle and yes Donkey absolutely loves this -{

    Is it acceptable to admit that I think old George did quite a good job? :o
