Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

Hey thanks FACT i didn´t no that Little nelly and the T55 tank aren´t scale 1/43. I also just want 1/43. And yes you are right about the price of the taxi. I don´t know what the rate of the BP is against the EURO but is sounds about right to me.

Many thanks for the info ak007.  I couldn't agree more regarding this set of models.  I have been collecting these since the start of the series and each and every model is just so accurate.  As you quite rightly say, 100 models would be a nice round figure for this set and I am with you 100% when you say that they could do to give us a full list of the remaining models and STICK to it...
May they cary on & on & on.

I remember months before this collection started I saw a French version called "Les Voitures du James Bond" and thought-I wish we could get this in Britain. Then a few months later the series began in the UK.   So if you wanted to know how many models are in the collection, can you get a clue from countries that have run the series earlier?

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

Bleuville, the UK is currently "in the lead" with this collection after overtaking the French, who switch to deliveries every 3 weeks at some times during the year, whereas the UK has consistently released one issue every two weeks (2 every 4 weeks for subscribers).

Here's a website (in French) which charts the French releases:

... their most recent release was the Ford Ranchero (#76) at the end of December 2009.

hey everyone, this is my first post !!

would anyone like to buy my JB car collection (obviously not complete as yet !! ) oar does anyone know anyone who may be interested ?? ( i dont wana sell - but i'm skint !!! )

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

Hi crocke007 - I reckon your best bet is not to try and sell your collection as a whole but sell the models individually on eBay. It's more effort but you'll get more money in the long run. I've been buying and selling die-cast models on eBay for years and never had any problem selling surplus JB Collection cars. Usual return is between £5 plus postage and £11 plus postage each, depending on the model. Good luck!

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

The Q-Boat from TWINE is now available from Chinese eBay sellers:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? … 0449962561

I wonder whether this is going to be a "regular" release or a final subscribers-only gift?

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

So... The rumours were true. Really looking forward to this one, I wonder if it will be on land or in the Thames in its box. This is very exciting! This will be the first time a model of this will have been mass produced for a decent price. Apart from this one http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/007-James-Bond-Q- … 3a56647847
I hope that this is a sign that the collection is drawing to an end so that it can end on high, rather that just continuing for ever.

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

Love the look of the Q Boat - can't wait to see what diorama they put it in - hope that it's on the street so we can appreciate the full green underside of the boat.... as seen when it does the barrel-roll.

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

Just finished speaking with the call centre over a little confusion with the credit card bill, As far as they are aware it is still a minimum of 85 models. So if we see any more than 2 news issues popup on eBay then we will know whether it has been extended or is just different from the list we ‘know’.

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

I'm really pleased with the black Mercedes 220S which has 3 Spectre guards and Irma Bunt figures inside. (That's 2 Merc models she's been in.)
The details and the diorama are what make the models so great.
The Mercury Cougar in front on the background, I presume is a computer illustration.
Very clever.
Unfortunately next is yet another Range Rover. Black, like the TNDies one, but from QOS.

It's a pity they can't produce Rolls Royces or they could've done Draco's blue Corniche from OHMSS.

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

the diorama of the q-boat looks very good i think. The other one is absolutly differend now it´s the question how the diorama is going to look it needs a good one.

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

Looking at the Q Boat and the Dragon Tank I wonder if these are the results of a trip that GE Fabbri made to The Bond Museum in Keswick that I'm sure someone mentioned on here ages ago.???? If so then I hope that they make a model of the Motorbike and Rocket Sidecar from TSWLM and also the Ski Doo from DAD that I saw when I was there - they'd make nice models and I'm sure that as TSWLM is a favourite film of a lot of  people the model would be a popular model.

And what if for subscribers they sent an empty case with a diorama of Graves Ice Palace  - a model of the invisable Vanquish perhaps??? ajb007/lol

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

That Q-boat look great and I cant wait, always wanted one. But I do think it is a bit out of order if this is an issue that we have to pay for. This is a James bond CAR collection! Unless they justify it by calling it a ‘special issue’ which was talked about in the paper work when signing up.
The dragon of Crab Key looks interesting but I don’t really see the need for it, especially without the diorama. To be honest this dragon thing always spoiled Dr. No for me a bit. I wonder if they will be anymore non car issues, DAD hovercraft anyone? Or how about any of these;

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

Hello Everyone, I am new to this forum, just found it a couple of weeks ago and finally signed up!

I am so happy to find others who love this collection. I live in Canada and it is not cheap to import these models, almost 20 pounds including shipping, but it's worth it!:D

Just had to say I think ak007's ideas are great and I have sent many emails to GE fabbri with some of those same suggestions

I'm loving the dragon tank and Qboat hope to see more weird stuff!!!:s Would love to see some motorcycles, eg. BSR from Thunderball. Flying Matador etc.

Take care my Bond brothers

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

I just looked at WIKI & they have the collection up to 88

It extended to 90. The Q-boat and the Dragontank are added

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

I have to say that I am really very happy they've included the Q Boat and Dragon Tank in the collection.

While technically not a car, the Q Boat was in desperate need of a larger scale model than the Japanese one, and have we ever had a proper Dragon Tank before (apart from that one in the toy range from the 60s?). As great as the cars themselves are, with some rare models too, I think it's safe to say that a few of the ones in the collection have been 'background features' from the films rather than featured front and centre or integral to the films. Hopefully, if the collection continues, the inclusion of these different vehicles opens the door for other possibilities such as the BMW bike from Tomorrow Never Dies.
