it was the right size, the clasp was correct, just the edges were slightly rounder on there's compared to the original, so very close.

So, you are saying the breather was 100 % Singe made a resin prototype from our version made with original components but it was not 100%

This is typical of many licensed replicas though, so maybe it’s a contractual thing. I think they are meant to maybe represent how the props are perceived to look on screen,  rather than how they actually look in real life.

So much truth in these words, this is why I actually own no licensed replicas.

Re: Factory Entertainment - Coming Soon

I just got the mail from FE.

Does someone has more info regarding the accuracy, upgrades of this version or price tag?

Comments on the Factory Entertainment Facebook page suggest this will be $700 USD for pre-orders. $100 USD deposit and the balance due when they ship in 2020.

Re: Factory Entertainment - Coming Soon

Some new info and pics available.

The screws visible once the lighter open and the ignition cap on the bullet don't convince me.

I like the display idea

Re: Factory Entertainment - Coming Soon

I like the display.  Much nicer than the acrylic cases.

Love to know what metals are being used.  The downfall of the last one, apart from this re-issue, is the alloy it was made from, longevity of the product was not good.  Degradation was a major issue even on display only pieces.  It’s an incredibly tactile piece, it needs to be durable. The screw thread on the cufflinks on both of mine has become nonexistent even from extremely limited and careful handling.  The finish on one has become really discoloured and patchy with peeling in some areas. I’d rather pay a higher price for better materials, than a lower price for awful ones.  But Bond props aren’t exactly a hugely popular business, so I know compromises have to happen.

My genuine Q pin came from a good home and is different in size than the first run of FE pins. Were there two EON sizes for the pins in production?

Does the new case stand upright? It was good to stand up the guns in the perspex cases.

I did read somewhere that the new edition is heavier (I think it was an answer on their Facebook page) so they may have addressed this issue.
I’m disappointed to read that there is an orange end to the barrel. Hopefully, that can be easily corrected...

Re: Factory Entertainment - Coming Soon

A short video which shows the display case clever options. Very nice.
Also demonstrates assembly and shows the orange end cap. Looks like it can be easily corrected.
What did the first edition end cap look like?
Obviously the original had an open barrel...

New Intel...

The ordering window for this new edition Golden Gun has opened early!
It’s available now.

Re: Factory Entertainment - Coming Soon

Pre-order placed for the early $699.99 price.  ajb007/martini

Re: Factory Entertainment - Coming Soon

Besides the removable pen sight and the new foam case, are there other changes from the prior round?

I think it was 500 FE guns and 500 FE SE guns last time (?), does anyone know how many are being issued this time?

A comment from FE on Facebook suggests that this version is basically a totally new build and doesn’t have many similarities with the previous version. It didn’t go into any details about what the differences are.

They also commented saying that the production run is still TBD but will be a max of 2000. I guess it will be like the rebreather whereby the number of preorders determined the size of the run?

Re: Factory Entertainment - Coming Soon

Pricing is a mess.

FE has it as $799 normal, pre-sale $699.

007 store has it as £899!! That's quite a mark-up. It also states that's an early bird offer.

Re: Factory Entertainment - Coming Soon

£580 from Factory Entertainment + 20% import duties  = approx £700
That’s a VERY expensive free print that 007.com are throwing in if you order from them at £900  ajb007/amazed  ajb007/insane  ajb007/amazed  ajb007/insane

Re: Factory Entertainment - Coming Soon

Having missed out on both the SD and previous FE editions, I pre-ordered the second it went online. A lot of money, but I've spoken to a few people who have either of them - one lucky sod who has both - amd everyone agrees it's a masterpiece to have in one's collection. Now it's time for the long wait until October next year...
