Topic: Jack's back!!

So Royal Doulton announced they're bringing Jack the Bulldog back, as apparently it (he?) comes back for an encore in NTtD. I'm guessing that it will be essentially identical to the SPECTRE one (apart from the box), which I missed. Seeing as prices for second hand ones have soared, I'm thinking of getting one this time around. I do own the Skyfall one and it's a favourite. Does anybody who owns the SPECTRE one have any insight thereon? Thank you.

Re: Jack's back!!

It’s a nice collectible and if you don’t have the Spectre one then this is likely a more cost effective option.

I have both the Spectre and Skyfall ones so doubt I’ll pick up the NTTD version if it’s the same as the Spectre one. Sounds like a bit of exploitative marketing of an older product to me.

Pre-ordered this yesterday as I didn't have either from SF or SP. I'm guessing it'll be seen in Bond's Jamaican villa.

Re: Jack's back!!

Looks like they’re using porcelain for this edition. The SF and SP versions were bone china.

It would be nice if they made the eyes more accurate for this edition.  The ageing and damage applied to the SP version was near perfect.  Just let down by the eyes.

Really glad it’s coming back for NTTD, it one of my favourite props.

I've already bought the NTTD thermos, leather card holder and mug. They keep adding new NTTD merch all the time.

£65 to pre-order.
And somebody on eBay is already offering a chance to pre-order for £155!  ajb007/amazed
Nice profit if people take them up on this tempting offer.

Ahh right, probably should’ve been the first place I checked. Cheers QQ

Re: Jack's back!!

I wouldn’t worry, they’ll be readily available over the next few months.

Re: Jack's back!!

Apart from what it’s made out of, this version won’t look any different to the Spectre edition right? Surely old Jack hasn’t been through any more bomb blasts since Skyfall...

Re: Jack's back!!

The promo images look the same as the last edition. But maybe they’ll tweak it slightly so there is some difference.  It would make sense commercially to do this as they’d get more sales.

Re: Jack's back!!

Well it’s just a Bulldog figure and unless he grows a set not much they can really do to make him unique for NTTD - less of course Bond gives him a moustache in a drunken state of revenge at Madeleine  ajb007/lol

So naturally owning SF and SP, I have ordered the NTTD version just to complete the set damn it.

Weird.  My posts keep automatically getting deleted on posting in this thread.

I’ll try it without the image.

Re: Jack's back!!

Well, they could sort those eyes out and make them more accurate. The blurb states that they are updating it to recreate all the lumps and bumps, which might be why they switched to porcelain. It’s also being handmade in England, whereas the first two versions weren’t.  We shall see.

Re: Jack's back!!

I own both and the obvious difference besides the boxes they come in, are how Jack looks which we all know so I won't go into detail.

What I'd like to know, besides the obvious box difference with this new one, what will differentiate it from the Spectre one? Does anyone know?  To me it looks identical to the last one. Granted I haven't actually compared them. ajb007/martini

Re: Jack's back!!

No one has them in hand yet.  So apart from the speculation I made above, we are yet to find out.

Hi Asp..stupid question but is it just the painting of the eyes that’s inaccurate or is the mould or shape of the eyes different as well?

To me even the shape of the ears on the sale version looks more rounded....not sure if my eyes are deceiving me

The difference you are seeing is for two possible reasons: 1) Angle of the image is different, so the ears look different and to me even the jaw area looks fatter 2) More likely explanation is the top picture is of the early 20th century vintage Jack used in production (with the damage painted on I think Asp stated some time ago in another thread) and the bottom picture obviously is the new version, which is understandably going to vary slightly from the vintage original.

I have the SF Jack (and a vintage Jack in the smallest size of the three originals) and I'm guessing the only real difference between the SP Jack and the NTTD one (other than the mentioned switch from china to porcelain), will be the NTTD logo on the bottom of this latest iteration.
