At long last we have a new 007 collection available for James Bond collectors. Three 1:6 scale collector figures from the 1964 classic Goldfinger, including James Bond in his iconic three-piece grey suit, treacherous villain, Auric Goldfinger, and formidable henchman, Oddjob.
I was fortunate enough to see these figures for the first time at the Spring Fair inside Birmingham’s NEC in the UK. I could tell straight away the amount of effort gone into each figure is immense. Everything has been thought of, from the box to the clothing and the accessories, collectors in mind. Even the small details, like the markings on the gold bullion bars, the mint julep, the Slazenger golf ball, the PPK. They will be a great asset to any James Bond collection and something to admire for any Bond fan. To see them up close and personal was a wonderful experience.
Marc, Tony, and Gregg, from Big Chief Studios, were incredibly helpful and have well and truly made a great collection. Working in collaboration with EON Productions, and being huge Bond fans themselves, they made sure we weren’t disappointed. If anyone has a chance I highly recommend checking them out.
The official site doesn’t have a price point yet as of this writing. The figures will be displayed at the upcoming Toy Fair in New York. For more information, visit this official page for Big Chief Studios.
