It was a thing in 60’s because it was the only series on that scale. Right now, there’s no market for rolling out substantial ancillary products, apart from one-offs (and higher-end merchandise) such as this.
The series would have to make a dramatic course correction and be open to rapid expansion before any of this stuff could be entertained. To be honest it would be a clever way to market the series to younger kids. Yes but then if we start trying to aim at kids won’t that just lead to a sanitisation of the main product?
Bond is for ‘warm blooded heterosexuals in trains, aeroplanes and beds’ can’t remember who said that?Updates will be provided prior to launch. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed. The video games were somewhat profitable in the 1980s and early 1990s, featuring a mixture of styles including side-scrolling action and text adventure . Both versions were critical and commercial successes. The game sold nearly 5 million copies, making it the second-most successful game in the series, while only receiving mixed reviews. The game was a third-person shooter with no scuba diving level.
These were not from the film and may have survived from the ‘continuation’ story. Archived from the original on 2014-12-07. Open the doors and you’ll discover a detailed interior with a concealable radar tracker and a door compartment containing a telephone. Lift the bonnet to check out the straight-6 engine detailing. Pull back the rear bumper to eject unwelcome passengers. Revolve the number plates, raise the rear-window bulletproof screen and deploy the wheel-mounted tyre scythes. Pull back the gearstick to reveal the front wing machine guns. Measures over 3” (10cm) high, 13” (34cm) long and 4” (12cm) wide. The amount of creativity and thoughtful problem solving on display during the build makes it clear this was a passion project for whoever was involved. It was fun discovering how the gadgets and weapons are incorporated.
I can’t even begin to imagine the challenges and approach in desiging a set to be as crazy smooth and technical as this. Made at least a couple mistakes and had to go back to figure it out, but that’s one of the best parts of building, in my opinion. As for the finished product, it looks a lot better in real life than in the pictures.
I actually can’t think of anything the car in the movie had, that isn’t represented here. It’s a robust and sturdy build: weighty enough to feel substantial but not too heavy to detract from play. Additionally, the gear stick inside the car controls the front facing machine guns and the exhaust pipe raises and lowers the bulletproof shield at the rear of the car. Lego have excelled themselves with this product.
I was excited from the first marketing glimpses. Building was a thoroughly enjoyable experience, especially seeing the innovation that has been used for the bond gadgets. A great display peice, but also great for children to play with. Open the doors and you’ll find an elaborate interior with a concealable radar tracker and a door compartment with telephone. And when it’s time for action, turn the revolving number plates, raise the rear-window bulletproof screen, deploy the wheel-mounted tyre scythes and pull back the gearstick to reveal the front wing machine guns. Unwelcome passengers are also easy to deal with—simply activate the passenger ejector seat!
