Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

AS ANYONE RECIEVED ISSUES 8 & 9 YET!!!!!!
ive been expecting them for a week now.

53

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

Hi Guys I'm the new guy. I have been collecting these cars and issues since it started. I started complaining to them after I took delivery of the cars with slightly cracked cases. They do replace them so now I have 2 sets. I really didn't want to spend that kind of money on the set but I think they may be worth something in the future how much do you think the full set can be worth???

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

I picked up the Lotus last week and again, excellent value. I've got an autographed picture of Roger Moore sitting on the bonnet of the lotus from FYEO so they sit neatly together.

I wasn't aware that the shops would stop stocking after 8 or 9. I didn't subscribe because of the issues that so many people here have experienced (delays, breakages etc) so I'll be annoyed if I now have to subscribe (unless I can do it through WH Smiths).

Does anyone know definitively if this is the case?

55

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

To be honest. The waiting doesn't really matter as long as I get them in a reasonable amount of time. I think the breakages issue has been resolved with them changing the packaging.

I'm sure WHSmith would order them for you.

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

I SPOKE TO A LOVELY GIRL AT BONDCARS.COM , WHO APOLOGISED OVER AND OVER AGAIN ABOUT THE DELAY AND SAID WE SHOULD ALL OF RECEIVED THEM BY THIS WEEKEND.

57

61

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

Recieved my issues 8 and 9 this morning.
The Lotus is lovely - a fantastic model
The GoldenEye BMW looks rather pathetic, the figures are poor and for some reason my car has no licence plates!?

Mine has a rear plate but no front.

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

I collected my copies of 8 and 9 from the Post Office this morning. They were in a nice cardboard box again and cars and mags were all in pristine condition! Very pleased!

I got both of these models yesterday - my first since subscribing - and I must say that although I agree with you on the Lotus - great detail - especially the Goodyear tyres - I beg to differ on the Z3 Model.

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:
http://www.bmwworld.com/media/bond/goldeneye.htm

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.

You're absolutely right, there is no front licence plate, and having opened the case and fully inspected this model, there is a licence plate on the rear of the car it was just obscured by the case and diorama backboard.

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

Picked up the F355 Ferrari from Goldeneye on Wednesday - this is issue 10 and according to my local WHSmith, it is the last one available in the shop. It's possible to do a subscription through them or your local newsagent so act now if you don't want to miss out!

Having seen the pictures of the Ferrari, I thought it looked a little to plasticy, but in fact, it looks superb. Really pleased with that one!

67

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

Can't wait my next 2 should be arriving soon.

68

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

I know how you feel. I subscribed a while ago and I got the Lotus from FYEO and the Goldeneye BMW about 3/4 weeks ago, with the accompanying magazines - and nothing else.

That was until this weekend. We go on a family camping trip on friday night. the weather has been raining a lot and when we return home last night to see a soggy cardboard box on the doorstep - in clear view for all to see - and as a miracle - inside the  soggy pulp was an unscathed Goldeneye Tank model.

I really like the tank model - it's great detail of a long overdue Bond vehicle - it's just a shame that it doesn't come on a diorama like the other models.

I will be contacting Royal Mail to complain about the delivery of the package - and thanks to all of you who wrote and complained about the packaging - as if it wasn't for you guys I'm sure that the model might have been ruined!

And as the lack of models is a bit of a concern I think that I'll also be contacting the distributors!

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

I have been ok. I am completely upto date apart from the latest 2 issues which I was charged for about a week ago.

73

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

Why oh why oh why do you continue to bother me Mr Postman?

Following my rant about a package with the Goldeneye Tank being left on my doorstep over the rather rainy weekend whilst we were away - my lovely, beautiful Bond Girl of a Wife returned home from a trip out to find my AVTAK Taxi on the doorstep.

This time it hadn't been raining but once again it was left if plain view on the doorstep for all to see.

I'm just off to find where I complain to the Royal Mail.

As for the model itself - it's great - I especially like the bridge wall on the diorama - which 007 jumps over onto the boat below - superb!

Roll on my next model - if the postman doesn't ruin it for me!!!
