Aston Martin DBS Nice score! Spewing I didn't get an email notification about it appearing on ebay. Although I would never pay the $400+ most of them seem to go for now ajb007/insane

Do you plan to modify it?

Not planning on modifying it other than having a tape in it with 'Where Has Everybody Gone' on a loop.  ajb007/rolleyes

Re: Props - No Clothes

ajb007/biggrin Nice one. I like to pair my props with a complimentary item, and the soundtrack would be perfect.

Re: Props - No Clothes

I think "modifying" means "add a garrote". Either way, the loop idea is great, like the loop on the Blofeld Tape Player from Thunderball.

707

Re: Props - No Clothes

There was no garrotte, Necross used the headphones cable, unsure of what needs to be modified.

Re: Props - No Clothes

The mods I'm talking about are the buttons and aerial for the bomb detonator... I guess Saunders' death was forgettable for some!

Gosh, folks, I need to watch TLD again! Thanks for the corrections.

I think that there  are two different types of Walkman used in two different Necros scenes.

Here’s the photo of the Skyrunner - as seen in the Safe House/Milkman scenes

And here’s a screen grab of the scene where Saunder’s meets his maker:

There’s no red or green markings on the Skyrunner so I guess that one is still out here waiting to be identified.

Re: Props - No Clothes

Both are the same model. The Prater walkman is modified with details on the back; the safehouse walkman is unmodified.

Re: Props - No Clothes

It's been pretty quiet here lately. Let's fix that. ajb007/biggrin

I was fortunate enough to add a nice range of exciting items to the collection - and quite a few props I had been hunting for years. I must give a HUGE thanks to @JTM for making this possible - it is much appreciated ajb007/cheers Below are some of the new acquisitions alongside my other stuff.

I'm proud to now have one of Ed's breathers in my collection. A very cool and iconic prop there. I was making the other variant when I received this one, so things have worked out perfectly. Also, finally scored the underwater camera - not to mention the dossier, which isn't something I could've made at home because of its size. Some very well-replicated props.

I bought one of these cork removers several years ago, but it never arrived ajb007/confused I always assumed it didn't get through customs for being a possible concealed weapon, but on reflection, I won it at auction for next to nothing, so perhaps the seller decided to re-list it? Anyway, I was after one complete with box and instructions - the latter here being in near-mint condition. Not sure why I expected the device to be larger, when you can get an idea of its size in Wint's hand. I unscrewed it to discover an unused Corkmaster branded bulb inside - something the seller didn't mention. Gotta love when that happens!

Amazing replicas of the gift bag and lapel pin. Tosca may not be for everyone, but Tosca props are certainly for me. ajb007/rolleyes

Fantastic replicas of the Aston key fob and combi pens. A couple of connecting themes here - danger and luck: the DBS accessories prove helpful in keeping Bond alive; the two chips Bond throws on the table after he is poisoned; the card with red backing representing danger. Why spades? The ace of spades can represent death, and the absence of the ace here suggests that, although Bond has been poisoned, it won't be his death. As we know, Bond would go on to win the poker game with a straight flush of spades. ajb007/martini

HUGE thanks to @Aston Martin DBS for helping me acquire the TLD walkman - had been searching for years! Inside, is Necros' most excellent choice of 'workout' music.

Re: Props - No Clothes

Very happy to add to your already enormous collection QQ ajb007/martini

Re: Props - No Clothes

Great additions, Andrew. You really need to get a Denix replica of the Broomhandle pistol instead of the one you show in the photo. It's a very accurate replica but you might have problems getting it through customs. --Ed

Re: Props - No Clothes

Very nice props Andrew !
Love it, specially the TOSCA gift bag, and how do you put pictures on the screens of your phones?

724

Re: Props - No Clothes

Thanks Luca ajb007/martini

I put paper inserts inside real phones and stickers on top of dummy phones, but for the pictures you see here, I have simply photoshopped on custom, one-time screens that relate to the theme of the photo.
