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?).

Wholeheartedly echo this on both points, I have the Kyoshol Q-Boat and it's too small to appreciate as a display piece or even as a toy.  I had the Dragon Tank by Gilbert Toys, which came with a set of other pieces I picked up a long time ago, and it was so toylike and fragile that I ended up throwing it away.

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

Just noticed tha WIKI have place an unconfirmed on the last 5 cars ajb007/martini ajb007/bond

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

It´s a pitty the numbers 85,86,87,88,89 and 90 are not confirmed yet. I wonder what the reason is maybe they are surprising us with a new set of car´s instead. The cadillac hearse from Diamonds are Forever for instance. I´ll keep my eye´s on wiki to see if there any changes

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

I wish people would understand that anyone can edit Wikipedia! You need to take it with a pinch of salt.
I very much doubt that the dr. no tank or the q-boat will be an issue in their own right as listed on wiki. They will be a ‘special issue’ or possibly a subscriber’s gift.   
All that list is going on is what appears on eBay from china. I suspect that someone has put unconfirmed due to the fact that the list we thought we knew has changed. These models are still unconfirmed as they are yet to appear on eBay.  Unconfirmed also could mean that we don’t know what issue number it will be.

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

I wonder if the Q boat & the Dr No Tank are 2 of 3 end of subscription freebies?
At the beginning of this collection the taxi had a diorama, but the tank & little Nellie didn't!
If so, there is another model out there waiting for us to spy!

Just a thought.

Why would they give them away for free when they already have us hook line and sinker? It’s not like they need to thank us for the millions of pounds we’ve paid them over the last 3 years. ajb007/rolleyes  The Q-boat will most likely be normal price (7.99) but the dragon may well be more.
Nice thought but I can’t really see it happening. (Well I suppose we could always keep are fingers crossed) I really hope they will be some more none car issues; it will make this collection even more unique. Think how this collection will look in years to come.  Nothing will ever come close in terms of variety, quality and shear volume.

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

Since we're nearing the end of this collection and 'Licence to Kill' still only appears to be getting just one vehicle, how about suggesting this to Fabbri as a last resort? ajb007/wink

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

Whilst i love the collection - i do think that Fabbri are taking the mickey just a bit, extending the collection all the time. They initially told me it would only  be 20 !!!!!!
So a couple of freebies would be nice !

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

Is it going to be 85 models or 90? (assuming Wiki list s right.)

So that’s 3 DB5s (2 GF, 1 TB and no GEye.),   4 Lotus Esprits (2 TSWLMe, 2 FYEO),    3 Range Rovers,    3 Mustangs,

2 new Aston DBSs (CR & QOS),   1 old Aston DBS (OHMSS),   1 Aston Vanquish (DAD),

a BMW Z3,  BMW Z8 and BMW 7 saloon.     Also quite a lot of old American cars from 1950s and 60s.

(But they forgot the Ford Zodiac from Thunderball !    Not many Vauxhalls in Bond films though ! )

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

I'm sure that the tank wont be part of the collection. Kingsmodel have it for sale on ebay and it isnt in a diorama box. Kingsmodels always supplys his models as we receive them. Suspect its another little nellie.

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

I hate to disagree with gsinclair22 but in the early going of the collection I did purchase a few models from kingsmodel. (before I made good contacts in England). They did not come with any diorama, so hopefully the dragon tank will come in a diorama. The early pics of the Qboat and others did have their diorama. Here's hoping!

Do you mean good contacts in the UK?

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

I know what you mean!...but please don't go down that road!..I have been on sites that have had the same comments about England & the UK!!! & it's ended in argueing on the site. ajb007/martini ajb007/bond

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

Wow, what's going on over there?! I buy models off a friend in England which is in the UK.

PS I am Canadian but very proud of my English and Scottish background as well as my Welsh and Irish friends.

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

It would appear that the collection in France has been cancelled… http://www.microsofttranslator.com/BV.a … ticle%3D70
I think the idea behind this being to re-launch the collection from the start with the Q-boat and Dr. No dragon as the free gifts. Don’t no what this will mean for us over here. I would like to think that our collection would continue. Maybe it is just no longer profitable in France?

That would seem to make sense, as I suppose it would be difficult (and possibly illegal) to sell us a tank and a boat as part of a car collection. Once again, there are no photos of the diorama for the tank, just like our previous goldeneye model. Was looking forward to them though, especially the q-boat.:(

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

sorry to crash the thread guys, but i'm a fan of the q boat and heard it was going to appear in the JBCC.

The way I read that website is that new subscriptions are suspended ... nothing sinister in that, GE Fabbri have apparently also stopped taking new subscriptions in the UK due to the series being so close to its termination.

They now advise people to buy the remaining issues individually using the Back Orders service ... a UK contributor reported this a week or two back, after having tried to subscribe.
