Very neat! Also, how nice that they include a backdrop for displaying these. Again, wish more releases would do that.

nice! I especially love all the accesories, the boxed walther looks very good, and that card shoe is so cool! Nice work as well on the tailoring except for James's coat, makes him look very bulky and makes the head looks undersized...

I watched this movie again just a few nights ago. The Joseph Wiseman likeness is better than Connery's.

They both look pretty great, although I agree with the comments -- the Sean Connery likeness is just a little off (though not bad), and between the way the coat is made and the expression on the face, they end up giving him what looks like a slightly undersized head and a very surprised or confused look.

The Walther looks off as well. The grip should be at a sharper angle and it should be textured, not smooth, with the distinctive Walther banner. The hammer should be more prominant. There are better ones on ebay for $3-4.

Not all that impressed with James, but I like some of his accessories. Definitely want Dr. No — vast improvement over the old Sideshow figure.

The Connery figure looks really odd to me almost as if this figure should have appeared in Gerry Andersons Thunderbirds, it seems to have that sort of caricature look to it.

I think the likeness isn't *horrible*, but the paint job is definitely rather flat...

It certainly looks like Connery, but it doesn't look life-like, more like a cartoon.

Admittedly I’ve never been all that into Connery as Bond (blasphemous, I know), so I feel a tad out of my depth discussing likeness details and whatnot. I can see what you mean about it looking a bit cartoonish; my observation was simply that the flatness of the paint has likely exacerbated that a bit.

I think Daniel Craig is the best Bond. His portrayal is certainly the closest to the Bond in the books. Casino Royale is the best Bond movie ever made. The scripts have been crap ever since but that isn't Craig's fault. Sean Connery is the second best Bond but Living Daylights is the second best Bond movie followed by Goldfinger.

I like Craig as Bond in Casino Royale, but aside from the card game sequence, and the torture scene in the wicker chair, the majority of the rest of the movie isn’t in the book. Dr. No and From Russia With Love follow the book’s almost exact — which is why those two are my favorites. The closest physical representation of the character to the book’s description is Timothy Dalton. All the gadgets and silliness was pure Hollywood. Bond was a “detective” more than a super spy. For myself, Craig is probably the second best Bond — but I agree, aside from CR, the rest of his movies have been pretty meh — Spectre, which should have been awesome, was a disaster — and Waltz was hands down a terrible Blofeld with easily the worst (all Hollywood contrived) backstory that had zero connection to anything in the books.

Ian Fleming originally wanted David Niven to play Bond.

David would have been an interesting choice, but sadly, he was probably too old by the time Hollywood got around to making Dr. No, and being a well-known actor it would have been difficult to plug him into the role without all the baggage that comes with that. But I can see why Fleming would want him, Niven always brought a level of class and sophistication to all of his roles. Oddly, the Bond in the books doesn’t always come across as classy as they made him, and more often than not, he usually ends up getting the crap beat out of him in a fight. Had Fleming been writing the Bond books back in the 30s, I think Ronald Coleman would have been an interesting Bond. Connery was a virtual unknown, and I know Ian Fleming didn’t like him at first (mostly because Connery was a “hick” Scotsman with a thick brogue), but once the studio gave him elocution and manner lessons, Fleming came around. I know the studio wanted Roger Moore at first, but felt he was too young at the time (he was doing The Saint then). Same with Brosnan (when he was doing Remington Steele) and they were looking to retire Roger, he wasn’t the right age, so they went with Dalton. The hiatus between Dalton and Brosnan was to give Pierce a little more time to mature.

Didn't mean to start a discussion about which Bond is 'better', as again, I feel a tad unqualified to comment on that, since I've not read the books. My comment had nothing to do with the merits of his actual portrayal of the character, I was just speaking about personal preference. Maybe it's due to my initial impressions when I was younger, but I never found Sean Connery all that 'attractive' in general.... so yeah, really just entirely down to personal taste. Wink

I did always find Timothy Dalton rather attractive, though that hardly means I'd argue he was the 'best' Bond. 

Embarrassingly, growing up in the 90s my first impression of Bond was Pierce Brosnan. Razz 

I enjoyed Casino Royale, though my appreciation of it was just as much down to Eva Green [major girl crush of mine] and Mads Mikkelsen as it was Daniel Craig. :'D

No worries, skywalkersaga. These things tend to happen frequently, and so long as the discussions remain civil, it’s something to pass the time until the figures come out. I usually find the tangent topics interesting, anyway.

Oh, good.  I love you

And yes, in this case, I've found the discussion quite interesting/illuminating. Smile

Yeah, IIRC that was the reason why they didn't go with him.

Connery was a virtual unknown, and I know Ian Fleming didn’t like him at first (mostly because Connery was a “hick” Scotsman with a thick brogue), but once the studio gave him elocution and manner lessons, Fleming came around.
Didn't work with Lazenby. The editors ended up having to dub most of his lines.

I think Moonraker and Quantum of Solace are equal contenders for the worst Bond movie.

Apparently Ian Flemming stated that Roger Moore was the most appropriate casting for Bond.

Actually, David Niven did get to play James Bond, he, amongst others, was in the original Casino Royale along with Woody Allen and Peter Sellers.

Anyhow, back to the figures, and, before anyone gets too excited, let's not forget which company we're dealing with here. As good as any prototypes can look, the production figures have all been somewhat below par by comparison. Definitely a case of wait and see....

I was about to sat the same about Niven. Incidentally, David Niven was my grandad's platoon commander in the Phantoms in WW2!

I talked to Big Chief last summer at Birmingham Comicon and they said that for these new Bond's they have new sculptors and team in, as they recognised issues previously...but sadly, the cost of these is still way too high for me.

Great bit of history about your Grandad, I thought David may have served but I didn't know he was that high ranking. Definitely qualified for Bond.

As for the BCS figures, well, we will see...

Yeah, can't remember his actual rank - possibly Lt...will need to check! Yes, he definitely qualified haha.

Yup...price me out anyhow, but quite glad after I've seen previous quality

I'll just jump into the battle to defend my James Bond as well! I don't know which is the "best" and if there is a "best" in the end, I would say they all have qualities and flaws, and they all relate to a specific era, both real and in hollywood's system, action, humor, plots, every part is treated very differently between the 60's and today...

In the end, while I appreciate Craig as Bond, I don't think he is a "good" Bond, his movies rely mostly on the visual aspect of action and combat sequences, out of them his lack of emotion and humor is a big let down for me...
On the contrary I find that Moore actually portrayed very well some aspects of James Bond, his dandy fashionable style, his humor, his inflated self esteem, and his mysogynist side. Connery was also very good at that, much more than all other Bonds (I understand this couldn't transpire in the recent movies or feminists would burn the theaters, but from the books JB is a quite a piece of manly mysoginy and can be very vulgar at some moments, which is lightly present in Moore's era)

Now I totally agree some movies are epic fails, the 70's esthaetic hurts a little, Moonraker being one of the worst, but "a view to kill", "live and let die" or "the spy who loved me " are legend!!!

Judi Dench's M did call Brosnan's Bond a sexist misogynist dinosaur and a relic of the cold war, and I guess she nailed it, but, would we want Bond any other way!?

Nope.

If I was running the Bond franchise, I never would have brought him into the modern era — he would have stayed in the 50s-60s where his style works.

For what it’s worth, I like that idea a lot, Stryker! It would be awesome if they’d do a ‘period drama’ Bond movie, set in 50s or 60s. I really appreciated how Mad Men portrayed that era, and now thinking how great it would be to have that sort of aesthetic but in a more action-y spy thriller context. :’)

Agreed completely. If they want a modern Bond, then there are plenty of other action hero spies on the screen. Kingsman is a classic example. James Bond should have stayed in the Cold War era where he belongs.

I think the problem there would have been that it would have been too niche and may not have survived. It has only kept going as long as it has thanks to adapting and moving with the times. In the literary world, the Fleming novels now only make up a small portion of what has followed and the later books have moved with the times also.
