Corgi 270 James Bond 007 Aston Martin DB5. The first Corgi Aston Martin Db5 was born out of a meeting held by Eon Productions, owners of the James Bond franchise, in the summer of 1965 to discuss the promotion of their next Bond film, Thunderball. Following the meeting, agreement was reached for Playcraft to release the first Gold Corgi Aston Martin Db5 (C261) in October 1965, just two months before the release of Thunderball and almost a year after the Db5 first hit the screen and was seen by audiences around the world in Goldfinger, the Model was an instant success, and by the end of the year, after only three months, it won the award of "Best Boys Toy of 1965" for Playcraft.
The re-launch was completed with the new James Bond Aston Martin Db5 (C270) painted this time in Silver, to match the screen version, it was given revolving number plates and tyre slashers to add to the realism, what a toy. I always photograph my items from close up (not all sellers do this) and from different angles using a good quality camera, as I feel that this provides buyers with a true and honest representation of the item that's for sale. In addition, this item was photographed under bright white LED lights which tends to highlight an items flaws, but as can be seen from these pictures this simply shows this item to be in simply fantastic condition, especially for a toy that's 50 years old, it's in complete working order. Original paintwork, in'superb condition', very few, and then only small paint chips, with no touching up or resprays of any kind.
Small scratch on both front and rear windscreens. Roof sits completely flush, very few of these still do. Roof ejection system works perfect, opens and re-locks down into place just at it should. Bond and Baddie figure both original and in mint condition. Revolving Number Plates front and rear rotate freely.
Exhaust works perfect to eject the Bullet Proof Shield which again opens and locks back down into place perfectly. Machine Guns eject and lock back into place perfectly. Tyres all Original and in good condition.
Tyre Slashers are in perfect condition. Suspension both front and rear very good indeed. Includes brand new reproduction Instructions and Envelope.
Box is a brand new, very high quality reproduction of the 1970 Original that would of come with this very car. I don't know what to say about this other than it's in Superb and totally Original condition, not redone like so many now, it is simply Wonderful, a real find, this Vintage collectors piece has been priced respectfully to sell in terms of it's age and condition, and would make an amazing display item.
