007 Collection Announced!

On Christmas Eve 2022, Agora Models premiered a reveal trailer for an upcoming model collection:

This is a first in the partwork world – a set of eight (8) James Bond 007 1:8 scale partwork cars! Officially licensed by Danjaq and MGM Studios, these 1:8 scale models will be start being released in Summer 2023. The first car available will be the awesome, iconic and gadget-laden No Time To Die Aston Martin DB5.

Other models shown on their website include the Aston Martin Vanquish, Volante, DBS, and DB10, as well as the Jaguar JXR Convertible and submersible Lotus Esprit. It appears that Agora is scanning the vehicles in the Bond in Motion collection that is traveling around the world:

Personally, I think this is a fantastic idea and look forward to seeing all of the great models they bring to our market.

  1. I wonder what this means for the people who were partway through the Eaglemoss DB5 when the company failed. Of the four Eaglemoss kits I was working on, that was the one that was closest to done (about 2/3 complete). It sounds like these are new scans, so I’m guessing it means the old model will not be resumed and, given licensing, PCT won’t have it either.

    1. Yeah, the EM DB5 was not manufactured by PCT, but by Grani & Partners. The FDNY Tower Ladder 9 fire truck from Agora is also made by Grani & Partners, so we know the relationship with Agora already exists. Since Agora is now licensed for James Bond, it is possible that the ‘Goldfinger’ era DB5 that EM sold will return in some way. It would make a lot of sense to use the Grani molds/designs that have already been created. Time will tell!

  2. At first I was very excited about this because I have a bond car collection of other models already going. But now I’m worried about my half completed Goldfinger DB5. The Agora website shows a picture of the Goldfinger DB5 but there isn’t any mention of it. So close but yet so far?

    1. I have a feeling that Agora is going to ‘re-release’ the Eaglemoss Goldfinger DB5 as one of the 007 Collection models. My hope is that they update the instructions!
