Apologies for the lack of news since last Christmas, but life gets in the way of the internet sometimes. I have recently started a new job as Executive Director for the Powell County Chamber of Commerce, in my home town of Deer Lodge Montana. I’m also still working part time at the Old Montana Prison Museums. Settling into the new job very well, but it does take up time and thought, so I’ve not been able to get my mind on my own business Bondpix. Hopefully that will change as time goes by, and more Bond Collectibles will be arriving later this month.

The Battle For Bond first edition book by Robert Sellers

Battle For Bond

Talking of Bond Collectibles, I have just got my hands on a spare copy of the rare First Edition of Robert Sellers excellent opus on the ‘Thunderball’ saga, ‘The Battle for Bond’. Withdrawn due to legal pressure from the Ian Fleming Will Trust, only the truncated 2nd Edition is generally available.

I hope everyone has a great Spring and Summer, and that the delay on the next Bond film doesn’t go on for much longer.

Best wishes

Save on 007 goodies

Ultimate Edition James Bond DVD Boxed Set

Now that most of us have had a chance to see the new Bond film ‘Quantum of Solace‘, maybe it’s time to catch up on 007′s previous exploits. If you have yet to purchase the Ultimate Edition James Bond DVD’s, you may be interested in our sale of the Region 1 two-disc versions. Until recently the individual films have not been available on 2-disc DVD sets in the US, you could only buy them in sets of five. The ones that are now on sale, from the likes of Amazon etc., have new, and I believe, inferior cover designs. If you’d like to add or complete your Bond DVD collection, we have the original cover designs on sale for only $9.99 each. Or you can buy the complete box set of 21 films for only $149.99. These are the 2 disc versions, with all of the special features and documentaries on disc 2.
James Bond Poster set
We have also just listed a wonderful set of all 22 James Bond movie posters. Each one measure 24″ x 36″ and are recent reprints of various designs. Only $99.99 for all 22! If you are interested in individual titles, please let us know as we may have them available for sale soon.

James Bond MonopolyJust in time for Christmas comes the Ultimate James Bond Monopoly game. This differs from the version that was released a few years ago by being customizable, with re-usable stickers representing 50 Bond locations. The tokens are also different, so even if you own the 2006 release of this famous board game, be sure to get this new version. Only $39.99 while stocks last.
Doctor No Collectible plate from Franklin Mint
Also, still proving very popular, are the Franklin Mint Collectible ‘Sean Connery as James Bond’ plates. Long since out of production, a set recently sold for over $500 on eBay. However, we’re not greedy, we have them available from $39.99 each.

James Bond Movie BooksWe still have lots of books, from the classic novels by Ian Fleming to books about the history of the movies. Most are no longer in print, and some are becoming increasingly difficult to obtain. Add them to your Christmas list, or put one in your own Xmas stocking.

Happy Thanksgiving!

New James Bond Novel

Devil May Care:

The NEW James Bond Novel by Sebastian Faulks (writing as Ian Fleming)

We have just received delivery of this limited edition of the new James Bond novel. This is number 250 of only 300 copies made available worldwide, the splendid Bentley Special Series Edition. Beautifully bound in leather, with stitching to match the luxury car makers upholstery, this book also contains a die cast model of James Bonds Mark VI Bentley, ‘the ‘Locomotive’ as Fleming referred to it. Completely sold out in the UK, the only available copies are now in the US, and this is one of only 100 copies for sale here. We ship worldwide, so if this is the book your personal library is calling out for (and it should be), purchase it today and it could soon be on its way into your collection. Click here for more details.

Although this particular edition of ‘Devil May Care’ has never been read, I did purchase a copy of the UK edition a few weeks ago, here are my thoughts (for what they are worth).

Faulks manages to bring the writing style of Fleming back from the Sixties, without it being too much of a pastiche. The story moves along at a brisk pace, although never quite living up to the ‘Fleming sweep’. The characters were interesting, with a twist to one that was a bit of a surprise. I thought the tennis match worked much better than I expected when I first heard about it, very much in the style of the great battles on the golf course or around the casino tables that Fleming thrilled us with. The appearance of the ‘Caspian Sea Monster’ was inspired, a machine I always thought belonged in Bond’s universe more than our own. Overall I thought it a very enjoyable read, a welcome return of the Adult Bond thriller. Hopefully more Bond novels will be appearing in bookshops before too long.

Apart from operating Bondpix Freelance Photography, designing and updating the Bondpix website and new online store, I am the Executive Director of the Powell County Chamber of Commerc in Deer Lodge Montana. The Chamber represents local businesses and helps promote our county for business and tourist visitors. You can see the website that I designed and maintain at Powell County Chamber of Commerce.

Old Montana PrisonI also work for the local Powell County Museum & Arts Foundation, which runs the Old Montana Prison complex. The foundation helps support the local community in many ways, not least in running the Museums in and around the old Territorial Prison. Apart from the old prison buildings, the complex houses the Montana Auto Museum, Yesterday’s Playthings (toy and doll museum), Frontier Montana (Western and firearm museum), Powell County Museum and Cottonwood City (old historical buildings, including a working blacksmith). I am employed as an Online Sales clerk, and run their Ebay store as well as their online gift shop at www.pcmaf.org/shop. My wife Valerie is the main gift shop clerk in the Visitors Center and assists in the Curators Office.

I have also helped in the design and layout of the Museum Visitors Guide and other publications, adverts and flyer’s, and designed their new logo. I also run the Museums online blog

The Museum is a fascinating place to work and visit. The Old Prison is home to a large number of paranormal expreriences, from full body apparitions, glowing orbs, strange sounds and voices (EVP), and other inexplicable events. Ghost tours are planed in the future, as well as full Paranormal Training courses for those who would like to learn how to identify, and explain, many of the strange happenings.

For more details, please check out the Museums blog at Old Prison Museum news

It was with great sadness that we learnt of the recent death of stuntman Roy Alon. Roy was a veteran of the James Bond films, having worked on most of the 007 films since 1977′s ‘The Spy Who Loved Me’, and was one of the Worlds most prolific stuntmen. His first film was ‘A Bridge Too Far’, and apart from his stuntwork he had also appeared as an actor, including one of the stock car drivers in the 1981 film ‘The Long Good Friday’. His more recent films include ‘Troy’ and ‘The DaVinci Code’ to be released later this year.
I had met up with Roy on the set of the last Bond film, ‘Die Another Day’, on a muddy field in Aldershot, where he was about to become a Korean soldier taking part in the hovercraft chase sequence. You can read an article about this set visit at http://www.bondpix.com/BOND_XX_On_location.htm
An extract from Roy’s ‘STUNTS’ magazine interview is at http://www.bondpix.com/roy_alon.htm

Just uploaded the new issue of our FREE weekly advertiser, the ‘Tri-County Shopper’. We are now at Issue 16, nearly four months of hard work building this little paper up, and the feedback so far has been very promising. Lots of the businesses that advertise with us are reporting increased sales, phone calls and visitors, so we are feeling pretty pleased with ourselves. It’s a family affair, with myself, my wife and our sister-in-law Eileen, together with help from office staff and paper carriers to spread the word. The ‘Shopper’ is distributed throughout Deer Lodge, Anaconda, Philipsburg and other communities in Powell, Deer Lodge and Granite Counties here in southwestern Montana, hence the name of the paper! Check out the latest issue by downloading it from the link on the right, or go to www.mtpowellpublishing.com.
New issues are available every Wednesday.

2008 NOTE: The Tri-County Shopper has now been discontinued, and the website is no longer available.
