Hi,

What are my chances that I could persuade Lego to do a special edition of set 10231?, this time with Moonraker orange trim and decals! It is the 50th anniversay of Bond this year afterall...

Me likey! Very much!

I doubt you will convince Lego though. I have better odds at going on a wild binge with Pussy Galore tonight than Lego releasing a Bond-themed set. ;)



-What's Bond doing?
-I think he's attempting re-entry, sir!

Ok, seriously, I've never been sure where these go. :laugh:

Shadows is looking for stalkers. Yep, you heard me right. CLICKY!

Nice mod!  I was just thinking, 'Where's Drax?'  but there he is!  He looks a little too happy, though.  :laugh:

The only downside is that you've lost the nice contours of the tailfin.  :sad:

As a fan of James Bond I really like this! :thumbup:  But about Cuusoo, it's too simular compared to the original set. So I don't think Lego will ever use it!

Well they could use 3367

Or release a detailing set with the parts to convert 10231 to the Moonraker.

I supported this on Cuusoo  :thumbup:

I could be wrong, but I just don't see TLG ever doing any kind of official James Bond sets. I think the closest we'll ever get will be the Agents line from '08-'09, and perhaps a Bond-ish "Super Spy" in some upcoming series of the collectible Minifigures.
Each 60-count box of 71012 Disney Minifigures Series 1 contains:

- 4 copies apiece of Mickey Mouse, the Genie, Stitch, Mr. Incredible, Syndrome, and the Pizza Planet Alien
- 3 copies apiece of everyone else

Nice rendition of the original set! :classic:
Oh I'd love to see someone skilled making the Q boat from Moonraker. No I don't mean the gondola, but the other one. Was my favourite Bond gadget back in my childhood! Or still is...  :tongue:
