Hey Brent, remember that post above? Well guess what arrived in the mail today...
After a very long time since I posted the above, I have been on the hunt for a complete set of these baby's. These are diecast with the odd piece of plastic on them, these are absolutely the best diecasts I have seen in a very long time.
I was lucky not only to get a complete set but I also got the poster cards & the display box as seen in the auction pic below.
These diecasts are nicely packed in the single boxes, a clear plastic cover/dome protects the diecasts & the vehicles are securely fastened by a small screw on the bottom of the display base & a black cardboard that you can slide out with no problem holds them all together.
So here they are in no particular order.
The Moon Buggy has a plastic radar dish base that needs to be attached & the arms can be moved up & down.
The plastic blades on the Gyrocopter fold out.
This DB5 is Type A as the bullet shield is viewable.
This DB5 is Type B as the shield is retracted, 1 of the pieces to the battering-ram on the front bumper broke off as I took it out of the box & is easily repairable.
This Acrostar is Type a, the landing gear is down.
This Acrostar is Type B, the landing gear is up & comes with a display stand for flight which can be screwed down onto the base. Both BD-5J's as they are known as have folding wings.
This is Type A (see below).
This is Type B, the difference between the 2 Vanquish's is the front grill.
So yeah, very... very happy with this set. Now I just have to find a place to display the bastards!
