Topic: Life-size cardboard cut-outs

Hi, we (aldershot churches together) are putting on a James Bond-themed Ball for the youth of Aldershot, in Hampshire, UK. We would really like to get hold of some life-size cardboard cut-outs of Bond for the event. Does anyone know where best to go for these or does anyone want to donate any? It would be highly appreciated!!!

I'm not sure how much help this is, but I've seen recently at my local cinema (Southampton, Hampshire, UK) large cardboard cut-outs of Bond Daniel Craig promoting Casino Royale. You may be able to get hold of one at you're local cinema.

There was also one at Forbidden Planet in London the other week (last month).

Interesting that as often as this is asked, no one has ever produced them (aside from those issued as part of a specific ad cam[aign).

Other than looking on eBay or checking a cinema specialist, they aren't available; there's clearly a demand so I'm guessing it's a licensing issue. I got it into my head to have a life-size cut-out for each of the Bonds and now that I do, I don't think I've ever displayed but one or two and only for special events (the [i]LD display is HUGE ... makes me glad I never got the [i]GE though I must have 3-4 Brosnan's from other films/ads).

Thanks for the replies everyone, it's very helpful to know where I should focus my efforts. Time to switch on the charm with a few cinema managers methinks.

That shouldn't return more than 10K items or so ...

Actually, try "bond video," "bond phone," or "bond heineken" ... there have been life size standees for the tapes, beer, and mobiles.

Seen a few on ebay sillouette versions, think they were in the general shape of Pierce.
