Limited Edition Replica Golden Guns to be Released
Posted June 21st, 2010
The online collectibles store Factory Entertainment has created two officially licensed limited edition replicas of the golden gun that appeared in The Man with the Golden Gun in 1974. The million dollar per shot pistol used by Francisco Scaramanga, has been recreated as a 1:1 scale exact replica.
There are two editions of the gun, the regular edition, and the Dual signature edition that includes a numbered plaque signed by both Christopher Lee, who played Scaramanga, and Roger Moore, who of course played James Bond. Both editions are plated with 18 carat gold, and can be dissembled into five parts, including the bullet.
The company did extensive research into the original prop, talking with the original designer as well as the main cast of the film, and treading through the EON archives. The replica is officially licensed by Danjaq LLC and EON Productions. The regular edition is limited to 1000 guns, and the dual signature edition is limited to 400.
The pieces cost $449 and $649 respectively. Pre-ordering is already open, and the guns are due to ship in September of this year. The official description of the guns components follows:
- Fountain Pen Forming the 'barrel' of the replica, the pen screws directly into the body of the lighter. Includes removable thread cap.
- Lighter With a hidden 'slide out' section the lighter forms the main body of the replica. The lighter 'lid' opens to reveal a breech chamber.
- Cigarette Case Open the end to create the handle and trigger housing of the replica
- Cufflink With sprung blades, the cufflink screws into the trigger housing to create the trigger which can be pulled.
- Bullet A replica bullet inscribed with the 007 legend that can be fitted into the 'breech' of the cigarette lighter or displayed separately.
Also available from Factory Entertainment are a replica of Jaws teeth from Moonraker, and a replica of Solitaire's taro cards from Live and Let Die. For more information, visit the James Bond section of their website.
