Some years back there was a partwork called The James Bond Car Collection. It featured 1:43 scale cars from across all the James Bond movies. Issues came out every two weeks for £7.99 if I recall. I ended up subscribing, as did many others as the collection was successful enough to keep getting extended. In total there were 135 issues. (Do the math…)
Now Eaglemoss have decided to rerelease the collection. Apparently it’s only going to be for 50 issues. (The words ‘yeah’ and ‘right’ come to mind.) But, get this… The cost per issue is now going to be £12.99. Plus if you subscribe they stick on another £2.99 per delivery of two issues.
Still, these are nice models and if you didn’t get them the first time around you may want to look into it.
Personally there’s no point in me getting them all again. I will however pick up any new vehicles they might have from Spectre or Skyfall, or indeed any additional ones from the older movies. Hint: they never did the Kenworth tanker truck from Licence to Kill. Yeah, I know it’s a long shot.
Fortunately issue one appears to be the Aston Marin DB10 from Spectre which wasn’t included last time around as the collection had stopped by then. Plus it is just £4.99 so I will be picking that one up.
