Corgi Toys 811 James Bond 007 Moon Buggy
James Bond 007 Moon Buggy, by Corgi Toys, No. 811. Near mint plus/boxed. From The Marc Mulvale Collection. Starting bid £200. Please note that QDT apply 12.5% buyer's commission.
This James Bond Moon Buggy inspired by the film ‘Diamonds Are Forever’ is in unused condition with a complete paper label at the front of the model. The ‘arms’ are notably and hold position well (nearly always found ‘floppy’ so this makes a pleasant change). The red scanner revolves as the Buggy moves along. Most notably, the roof opening mechanism which causes the figure of James Bond to pop up when the hatch flips open works well too!
Occasional small mark to the paint finish and note that the arms have become rather tarnished now in storage.
The card and cellophane box is complete with bright card and original cellophane. Small cellophane puncture (this large expanse of cellophane is nearly always a problem area) and a wrinkle. Card has minor ruffling/wear and a small tea-stained area . Attractive inner backdrop (moon scene) too.
Box underside (dated 1972):
A desirable James Bond item made between 1972-74.
