Many die-hard collectors in the Bond fandom will rejoice about a new set of Goldfinger figures by Big Chief Studios but the set of three could be well blow the budget of the occasional collector
Later today at 5 pm UK Time, Birmingham based Big Chief Studios will launch the pre-order phase of three sixth scale figures from the third James Bond film ‘Goldfinger’ (1964) which include James Bond as portrayed by Sean Connery, villain Auric Goldfinger as portrayed by Gert Frobe and Korean henchman Oddjob as portrayed by Harold Sakata.
So what exactly will each of the figures cost you? The price on the Big Chief website is listed with £ 209,99 (€ 246,45 / $ 262,38) for both the First and Limited edition. There is the possibility of a monthly payment plan. If you’re a die-hard collector, you definitely have to get your hands on those. For the occasional collector, these might well exceed the budget – no matter if you buy just one or the full set.
Judging from the range of photos on the individual pre-order pages, I think that grim looking James Bond and Auric Goldfinger don’t really look the part. Oddjob however is perfect and has a wonderful likeness. Judge for yourself…beauty is, as we know, in the eye of the beholder.
