View Full Version : James Bond WILL Return!

There's a very cool interview at MI6 with Oluf Hartvigson - in my opinion SSC's best sculptor - where he says there is another Bond figure to come out very soon. Doesn't mention whether it's 1/6 or 1/4.
Only one? well, at least the line's not dead.

12-06-2005, 03:39 PM
Interesting...I like reading interviews like that one.

12-06-2005, 04:35 PM
I've got my fingers crossed for a 1/6 Donald Pleasance Blofeld or Auric Goldfinger.

I've got my fingers crossed for a 1/6 Donald Pleasance Blofeld or Auric Goldfinger..Yes that WOULD BE COOL!!!Hopefully it's the Connery with the Rocketbelt. I think it may be a little too soon for a Daniel Craig figure. Sideshow has done such a Great Job on these figures that it's only natural for the fans to want more! A Donald Pleasance Blofeld and Connery In the Ninja outfit from the end of "You Only Live Twice" Is a Very very fine idea!!!!!Come on Sideshow give us a Hint?!!:confused:

Looking at the Bond figures from the past it appears that villains and bond girls were released with a Bond from the same movie. The exception being Wai Lin and maybe ***** Galore, I don't know if she was released with Bond and Oddjob or not nsince they came out before I discovered sideshow. At any rate if there is only one I would expect it to be a James Bond, possibly a PF, in which case I would expect Roger Moore.

So, I'm looking at my Bond movies thinking possibly Sideshow has been working on FRWL and just hasn't got it ready for announcement by the time of the game release. My second guess would be Connery in Diamonds Are Forever wearing the white dinner jacket from the cover (certainly not that pink shirt :naughty ). Another Brosnan could be likely since we have 3 Connerys, and 3 Moores. The possibilities are mind boggling :google , but it is so fun to guess. I'd like to see a Dalton from The Living Daylights. At any rate it is great to look forward too! :joy

I think the obvious answer as to the new bond figure...perhaps the guy from Casino Royale?

That's right folks - they're doing Peter Sellers, Woody Allen and David Niven!!!!!

oh, and Barry Nelson...

12-06-2005, 09:27 PM
I still say I would be interested in a PF Roger Moore.

12-07-2005, 02:51 PM
Two words, Baron Samedi.

12-07-2005, 04:57 PM
Thought of another figure that could probably do well stand alone...Q...or R...depending on which movie. I think a John Cleese in that white lab coat would look very nice to Desmond Llewelyn...

12-07-2005, 08:22 PM
A John Cleese Q or a Judi Dench M would both be great figures, though I'm not sure how well they'd sell.

I think I would want Bernard Lee prior to Judi Dench. No need to make that other guy...can't even remember his name, Brown I think.

I imagine most fans would probably rather have Bernard Lee, but to me his M wasn't much of a character, he was just there for exposition, Judi Dench's M felt like a real, fleshed out character.

I want a Dalton PF :drool

Where's the rocketpack???

A John Cleese Q or a Judi Dench M would both be great figures, though I'm not sure how well they'd sell. I would prefer Benard Lee as "M". Not sure about the rest of you guys, But I for one could care less about the "Brosnan Era". Having said that however, Everyone is entitled to his or hers favorite era etc.... Personally I didn't like Brosnan. Connery being the best, I favor Dalton and Moore over Brosnan. In fact it would be cool to get a second Dalton Figure. Perhaps in the gear from the begining of "The Living Daylights".

Surely a prototype of Daniel Craig as Bond WON'T be ready for Toyfair? I mean, the movie won't start filming until February and until then they'll have no idea what his hair is going to be like. One thing's for sure, it won't be how it was in the press conference (too long) or even in the press photo (too slicked back) and may even be dyed.

12-09-2005, 08:31 AM
Could be wrong,but i have a feeling we wo nt be seeing a Sideshow Craig figure.He s good freinds with Jude Law,who s one of these"I m far too serious to be made into a doll" types-you know what i mean?

Fine by me,as i would nt buy one anyway-far too many gaps remaining from the first 15 or so films that need to be filled.

EON isn't going to sign anyone to be Bond without being able to exploit the hell out of their likeness. Especially an unknown like Craig.

But the film's not out until '07 right? I doubt we'd see anything until much, much closer to it's release.

12-09-2005, 10:22 AM
Yup Dave, '07 :( I would like to see a Daniel Craig figure released around the time of Casino Royale. The completist in me forces me to want it and to buy it. But I have grave concerns about the movie... :sick

12-09-2005, 10:52 AM
The film's coming out in October 2006.

12-09-2005, 11:41 AM
November 17 actually. I don't know why I was thinking 07, is that when Spiderman is coming out? At the rate things are going I wouldn't be surprised if it is pushed back to 07. Ah well, sorry for my mistake, shoulda double checked first.

In remembrance :

Michael Billington (Sergei , TSWLM)
Ed Bishop (Klaus Hergescheimer , DAF)
Alf Joint (Capungo , GF)
Geoffrey Keen (MoD Frederick Gray , 6 Bonds)
Marc Lawrence 1910-2005 (played gangster in numerous old Hwood films opposite many stars such as Monroe. DAF & TMWTGG , oldest ever Bondstar at 95)

12-11-2005, 03:29 PM
Wasn't Alf Joint the guy who got fried by 007 in the bath at the beginning of Goldfinger? He only got the part because another stuntman, who was meant to be doing it, ended up in jail. Hell yes, we need an Alf Joint action figure!

Yes , you're correct :)

Vincent "dr. Kaufman" Schiavelli (1948-2005) :(

12-30-2005, 12:52 PM
C'mon then...lets have it Sideshow...all the other lines are getting additions...lets have another Bond figure...pretty please??

I'm hoping that Toy Fair is going to see a few Bond items shown by Sideshow. The unending LOTR and SW stuff is a real drag. I know it's selling great, but a little diversity would be nice!

01-30-2006, 08:16 PM
Maybe its wishful thinking (that really interferes with intuition ya know) but I have a feeling we're gonna get something at toy fair. I know some expect a Daniel Craig, or maybe the figure will be home closer to when the movie comes out.

Pure conjecture here...if we get a Bond figure at Toyfair I don't think it will be Daniel Craig because he supposedly isn't wearing a tux in the movie! :horror Actually he will in the opening gun barrel sequence. Is that enough for SSC to do a Daniel Craig tux figure? If not, I'm skeptical SSC will do a figure with him in an outfit from the movie unless it is one that will be been very early on in the trailer.

If only they would do From Russia With Love figures... I would love Connery in his grey suit and a Red Grant villain figure! That would be very cool, as that is my favorite classic bond film. Though I have to admit.... a PF Moore would be an awesome continuation of that line... Roger Moore is the man...
