Not many have heard about
Factory Entertainment, but it's one of the companies that I follow with great
interest. It's similar to EFX and Master Replicas, but they don't have a Star
Wars licence to my knowledge. I have already bought some of their items, mainly
from the James Bond line and I can tell you, the quality is there. The material
of this replica is
all metal machined
construction and plated in 18 ct gold.
JAMES BOND - GOLDEN GUN 1:1 REPLICA -
Signature Edition + Artist Proof # 2 of 15 Worldwide
I'm gonna start with the gun replica. It's from the second Roger Moore James
Bond movie, The Man With The Golden Gun from year 1974. The main villain is the
legendary actor Christopher Lee that we all know from Star Wars prequels,
playing Francisco Scaramanga in the movie. He's one of those actors that I
respect very highly. He goes to the gategory of Alec Guinness, Gregory Peck,
Clint Eastwood etc, definitely one of the greatest names in the history of
filmmaking. He's now 90 years old and still active in the business. He has made
more films than any other living actor and has performed roles in 275 films and
counting. He's a real trooper and one of my favorite actors of all time.
These Golden Guns are released both in signature and limited editions. The
signed edition was by both Christopher Lee and Roger Moore.
The golden gun is also Artist Proof that are limited only into 15 worldwide.
Mine is AP#02. Nice to have a very lo number, i think Roger Moore has number 07
and Christopher Lee has number 01 :). The plaque says 400, but it means there
are 400 signature guns overall. It comes also with a acrylic case and stand for
the gun. As for the bullets, you can open the gun and place a bullet into it.
The trigger moves, but of course it doesn't fire anything or do anything, since
it's complete static replica. Still, it's a nice touch that you can actually
place a bullet into it. The certificate of authenticity is something really
unique and special. It's hard to display it with the gun, but it's something
pretty cool as a design.
Then we got Roger Moore, who happens to be my number one Bond. I was raised
watching his movies and Man With Golden Gun was my first Moore flick I ever saw.
Still the very first Bond was Living Daylights to me, followed by Licence To
Kill, because these two came out when I was a kid in 1987 and 1989. I think I
saw Dr. No quite early also, but nevertheless Roger Moore was the one that I
liked the best. He had the humor, the charisma with the women, also he had the
best villains like Jaws, Scaramanga, Mr. Big/Kananga. For all the true Ian
Fleming and James Bond book fans, perhaps Roger Moore was the least favorite of
them all, since he was quite a jolly person, quite the opposite to Daniel Craig
for example, but I loved him and he's still my favorite Bond to this date. Also,
I believe Roger Moore's Bond movies are rated as the worst, but to me they're
the most entertaining, fun rollercoasters of them all.
