Okay, hardly vintage but a great Bond collectible none the less!
http://s8.postimage.org/x4naxi3vl/DSC01710.jpg

When Corgi Classics released their Definitive Bond Collection at Taylor's Bar in Soho, London in November 2000, 60 units of this cheap looking piece of tat were produced. Appearing to be 4 of the production models clipped to a piece of thin card with a blured image of a 271 DB5. Not a patch on the Corgi presentaions of the 1960's and 1970's however first impressions are deceiving. The Lotus Turbo was sprayed a different bronze to the production version & its bumpers were painted black where the production models were unpainted so tat but rare!

Ex-Dave Worrall collection 1965 Gilbert 16602 Oddjob handpuppet. If you look closely the backing card is still unpunched although some idiot punched a hole through next to the factory punched pop out & it still carries the original $1.40 price tag
http://s23.postimg.org/paddg23w7/DSC01895.jpg

I'm not a fan of modern Corgi diecasts but this 2006 release ticked all the boxes. Sold through Corgi Goldstar stockists only 200 units were produced of this quality item although the packaging and certificate were done a bit on the cheap. One can only imagine what the value of the piece would have been if someone at Corgi had had the forsight to give them out to VIP guests at the Casino Royale Royal Premiere?

Roadgoing and underwater box art for the 1977 Edai Grip Lotus Esprit licensed model kit. The model replicated the features of the diecast with the addition of a battery operated motor, the missiles however were relocated to the front bumber instead of the correct bonnet location.

Aurora 585-249 factory fresh 1965 Aston Martin Super Spycar model kit. Effectively an unlicensed James Bond Aston Martin DB5 with full movie gadgets with the addition of whitewall tyres!. Stunning box art with a 16 page instruction manual dated 1964 give a hint to what this could have been if Airfix had not had the license to produce the car in all its 1964 screen glory.

Re: Donk's Modest Bond collection

GREAT Collection - thanks for sharing on here - some real treasures
there and always nice to see photos of other peoples collections  ajb007/bond

I agree... its fantastic to see some vintage stuff: toys, adverts,
displays, figures, tin toys and vintage guns etc.... It was the
old vintage toys and figures that got me started in collecting OO7

Replica Props seem to have taken over much of the attention of
a vast majority of collectors including me - But I still keep a modest
collection of things I wouldn't part with, Gilbert, Multiple Toys, Vintage
Corgi's etc ..... you can't beat the golden oldies when it comes to
collecting  ajb007/bond  ajb007/martini  WOW Nick! love the YOLT Can

That has to be one of the RAREST items I've seen in a LOOONG time.

I remember, as a kid, many, many moons ago convincing my mother to buy BOND bread (yes, that was the real name of the company long before the films came out).

Well, the reason I wanted it was because they put several stickers on the end of the package that was a photo from the then current film "From Russia with Love"
You could send away and get a cardboard attache' case that you could then place your collection of stickers.

Yes, I had them but, unfortunetly, it had to be thrown out by my mom....I can only imagine what they would be worth today as I never even see photos of them.

Re: Donk's Modest Bond collection

Ed, I have the bread end labels and the attache case !  I will try and find them and get a shot for you to relive your childhood. Nick  ajb007/smile

Re: Donk's Modest Bond collection

Just saw them in the other posting...Haven't seen them since the 60's...Glad to see someone's mother didn't throw them out!!!! ajb007/lol  ajb007/lol  ajb007/lol

Re: Donk's Modest Bond collection

Awesome collection! Love the Moon Buggy poster in particular.

I have to say, my collection is quite modest by comparison to some of the great collections you guys have!  ajb007/insane
