Bond is one of those licences that they are very protective over. There should really be more stuff out there. I am also astonished that it took this long for Funko to get their hands on this one. But, they always do. And now we are going to get tons and tons of 007 Pops, […]

If we were using Rich’s old street light format, I’d say this rumor would be a red light… but it’s a fun idea. Sir Roger Moore told the Sun that producers are trying to line up a film ala The Expendables, that would start previous James Bonds: Moore (89), Sean Connery (84), George Lazenby (75), […]
