Second only to the “Bond girl(s)”, James Bond’s car gets an extreme amount of attention. That’s the case even from Funko, who today announced the first James Bond Pop! Rides!. Rolling right off of Goldfinger will be James Bond in his silver Aston Martin. This first Pop! Rides! will be available at retail next month. Check it out below and pre-order at your favorite Pop! Stops (like AwesomeToyBlog sponsor Entertainment Earth).
Funko today shared details on the latest property to join the Pop! family, the British super spy himself, James Bond.
This initial series will feature two different version of James Bond from the films ‘Goldfinger’ and ‘The Spy Who Loved Me’. Also included in this series is the ‘Golden Girl’ from Goldfinger. Bond is only as good as his villains and this series includes Blofeld (with his white cat), Oddjob and Jaws.
There will be a few exclusives included in this first wave. Target will offer an Oddjob throwing his hat, Barnes & Noble will offer James Bond in his white tux from ‘Octopussy’ and Toys R Us will offer James Bond in his black tux from ‘Dr. No’.
MattyCollector’s revealed two Hot Wheels SDCC exclusives earlier today – both of which look fantastic. From the Simspsons comes “The Homer” and from James Bond you get his Aston Martin BD5. SDCC voucher pre-sales will take place 8AM PT on 6/23 for Early Access (Club Eternia subscribers only) and 9AM PT on 6/24 for everyone else. After the show these will be available at HotWheelsCollector.com.
See descriptions and images of both cars below, and leave your thoughts in the comments!
Hot Wheels® The Homer ($30): Hot Wheels® proudly presents The Homer from everyone’s favorite cartoon show “The Simpsons.” This vehicle is a faithful reproduction in awesome collectible packaging of the Homer Simpson-designed car “that’s everything the average man ever dreamed of!”
Hot Wheels® Aston Martin DB5 ($20): It’s the movie car that became almost as famous as 007 himself! This detailed Hot Wheels® version of James Bond’s Aston Martin DB5 comes with a special spy-catching deco and a Comic-Con package that you won’t want to miss.
The Yellow Submarine plush from Factory Entertainment was one of the first SDCC exclusives I listed this year, and now there’s three more joining it. A limited number of each of these (except the Archer Dolphin puppet which is sold out) are available for non-attendees here.

With the holiday season now upon us, it can be difficult to find the right gifts for the fan in your life. Now in it’s second year, the AwesomeToyBlog Awesome Holiday Gift Guide is my opportunity to spotlight some fantastic products that make perfect gifts. The latest cinematic James Bond aventure Skyfall just hit theaters earlier this month and it seems appropriate to put some attention on fans of the James Bond franchise, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary.
The most obvious gift recommendation is the new 23 disk movie Blu-ray collection. This new box set includes all of Bond’s adventures through Quantum of Solace as well as special, exclusive bonus content. It’s gorgeous.
Maybe your Bond fan would rather experience a classic James Bond adventure instead of watching one. To those ends, Activison’s ‘007 Legends‘ should fit the bill. Featuring 5 missions inspired by classic James Bond missions, you’ll travel to exotic locations and foil the plans of some of bonds most iconic villains. You can even experience the latest bond movie Skyfall, via DLC.
If your Bond fan always roots for the underdog, hoping that Bond fails in his mission, then Factory Entertainment’s prop replica SPECTRE ring may be the perfect gift. I like this piece from Factory Entertainment for a few reasons, it is a gorgeous screen accurate prop replica and it is a subtle way to express a persons love for the franchise. While it may be a bit of a splurge, it is fantastic and would make an amazing gift.
Today is the launch date for 007 Legends, the latest James Bond game which takes 5 classic James Bond movies (Goldfinger, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, Moonraker, Licence to Kill and Die Another Day) and combines them to create a new, exciting narrative. The game will also have an extra, DLC mission based on this fall’s Bond adventure – Skyfall. Check out the launch trailer below, and head to a store near you to grab the game.
With today being the celebration of Global James Bond Day, it seems appropriate to preview the opening credits to the upcoming game 007 Legends. The game, which ties together five classic Bond adventures (Goldfinger, Die Another Day, Moonraker, License to Kill and On Her Majesty’s Secret Service) launches October 16th. Additionally a 6th, Skyfall based mission will be available via DLC after the movie hits. Check out the opening sequence below!
This winter Bond’s latest adventure, Skyfall, will thrill movie goers worldwide. But your local cineplex isn’t the only place where you’ll find James Bond; you’ll be able to find him in your living room as 007 Legends brings the action of Bond to your XBox 360,Playstation 3 or PC. 007 Legends, currently targeting an October 16, 2012 launch, ties together five movie-inspired missions, allowing you to experience some of Bond’s most memorable moments first hand. Activision sent out a press release showcasing some of the voice talent the game will use, which gives some clues as to what classic movies are featured. After the jump, read the full press release with the announcements.
James Bond has been a entertainment staple for 50 years, yet has never had a presence at SDCC – until now. James Bond is making his debut this year at SDCC at booth #3528.
