In 1999, The Danbury Mint came out with what was, at that time, the most-detailed and functional replica of the Aston Martin DB5 from Goldfinger and Thunderball fame. Selling for $149, this car was more of a collector's item and less of a toy to be played with, especially as the model developed a reputation for being somewhat fragile. The catalog above was a part of the extensive paperwork that came with the model, and included instructions on how to operate its many gadgets.

Bond In Motion - Eaglemoss Collection
This massive collection of James Bond vehicles consists of 137 cars, trucks, a boat, an airplane, a tank, and mixed machines such as the Little Nellie gyrocopter and the Parahawk. Also a part of the collection is 134 magazines. It has been fun to collect about a third of the vehicles, the iconic ones from a memorable scene in one of the films. The remainder are vehicles without much of a Bond connection for me. The cars are well-made and presented in a diorama, and the magazines are well-written. At this time, I have 115 of the vehicles, and 98 of the magazines. I am unsure if I will go to the bother of completing this collection.
