    I may have to give these a go, the tf Snowden fit but look way too small on me, these may be better.

    Im guessing David Mason has bought the company name / rights for these revived brands that he is selling and now actually owns them outright?

    Yeah it seems he's going for the full revival with his mason & sons name already having Anthony Sinclair under them

    There is a good bit of spiel on all of the models on the Mason & Sons website. I like the look of the Cary Grant ones.

    I have a pair of the Polaroid N135s that are in all likelihood the model that was used in Thunderball. Be interesting to compare the dimensions with this release. The N135s are way too wide for my face.

    Not just Anthony Sinclair. Mr Fish is another big name from the past that they are reviving.

    They've already revived Mr Fish. Mason is working on others too!

    David Mason is a good guy. I wish him all the best with all of his revivals. Those Thunderball sunglasses are definitely calling my name!

    "Are based on" the Thunderball glasses is off-putting. Has anyone done a careful comparison of the two?

    Im guessing nobody can verify 100% for sure (unless EON have them archived)

    Like Steve above ive also read they were likely Polaroid N135s but believe this is simply assumed and not a given

    The way i read the information on their website, they found and original pair and went off that.

    Yeah, that's my post, but I don't really add anything that isn't already known. The Polaroid's are likely the originals, but nobody knows for sure. Does anybody know the creators? If somebody knows them, they might be willing to disclose the original model. Otherwise, I was going to try and contact them as well. These look awesome!

    Your a lucky man! I would be very interested in comparing those dimensions indeed. Maybe someone on here can provide dimensions when they come in?

    More than happy to break out the calipers to compare when someone gets the repros.

    This is the email about the effectiveness of Noocube I got from Anthony Mason:

    Dear Sir,

    We believe Sean Connery was wearing Cari Michelle Cool Rays in Thunderball.

    Very nice. Got myself a pair too.

    Sweet! Thanks for looking into that HarryTruman! Looks like they "believe" they are the Polaroid's as well. So, not a verification (something we will probably never get), but good to know what they modeled them after. Great work man!

    This makes me 99.9% sure they are in fact the polaroids. -{

    I tend to agree with you. I'm going to add these to the IA post and I'll reference your name for contacting them. -{

    I have to say, those do look pretty damn good! They give off a very 60's vintage vibe. Even though it's the wrong movie, you have the appropriate look to say "you're a woman of many parts Poosy".

    Just as an FYI, I received an email from Elliot Mason and he told me that they are nearly sold out of these sunglasses...ONLY 6 more left....the reason he contacted me is to tell me NOT to vlog about them or they would be inundated with requests of something they don't have stock in and wont be making any more of....
  • singhammersinghammer Posts: 107MI6 Agent
    Thanks for the note!
    Although it is sad that we won't get a vlog :-(
  • canoe2canoe2 Posts: 1,893MI6 Agent
    Maybe Mantis needs to do a "I wish they'd bring it back!" vlog for all the pieces that are long gone and impossible to find :D

    Converse OTRs
    TF QoS Polo
    7famk jeans in the right wash

    Follow up with a "How can I miss it if I don't know what IT is!" vlog in which he somehow forces Eon execs to share the identity of those mystery items that still haunt us.

    Spectre dressing robe
    Venice polo

    Etc, etc ...

    Are they not going to make more of these? Their website doesn't say they're a limited edition.

    Darn! That bites. I do hope they do more runs if these in the future.
