I just don’t get it. It blows my mind. The amount of praise ToC get on their twitter with these designs is disgusting. Honestly they will never learn or change or improve because they only need to look there for their creepy bum liking feedback. With a few idiots even wanting the ToC treatment on every bond and/or every Craig Bond movie. Seriously this company will never change. They are blindsided by twitter and most likely insta. It’s a joke
So true

However isn't that the same here in some aspects?

The amount of times I see someone complain with others for legit reasons then go "...but I'll buy it anyway"

Like...I don't want to be the dick to tell you how to spend your money but why? If it's not good don't buy it or don't buy the new line it's trying to start, for example I hated what they did with the Star Wars ones at Zavvi with that awful disco Vader head and I just didn't buy any of them, it hurt because I've always wanted poster artwork but I stood my ground. If idiots keep praising them and just buying it anyway then companies will never learn.

Fact is if they really wanted a Bond film, even if it was promotional for the new film coming out then why not Dr. No...that's cult.

I find it more mixed here which is what I like. There’s a few that love everything or even a few that hate everything and then as you say still buy it but I like the balance and and less bias approach here. Along with the discussion. But there’s a few that lie to themselves, I’ve even done it to myself in the early days when I first started collecting and had to have it all. I’ve seen a lot more mature away from that Though over the years

As a full package it looks ok but all on it’s own is awful. That poster image is laughable and looks like someone knocked up on windows art
That's the thing, people that can't think rationally get fooled by the overall image, which is intended, with some of the image on the plastic box overlaying the art of the steel, with the depth, and something shiny and metal 'floating', that gets them buying.

Who's actually going to wear that gawdy, god awful poker chip pin badge??? Jeeeezzz.... The same number of people who will hang that fold creased poster on their wall.

TOC chasing EB with their inclusion of superfluous tat.

Damn, they do good renders this mob.

I figured I'd like this once complete, but a) I wish it was a poker chip not a pin this time b) I'm not fancying buying all the Bonds at £35 a pop c) They probably will only do one or two Bond titles anyway

Hmm, I disagree. Most the time It’s a mismatch of items forming a collage of images that don’t fit together at all. Some are ok as a full package (looking directly at the front of the boxes) Blade runner, Mad max, 2001, this. But that’s about it.
The rest are just a scramble of images

I'm gonna be the odd one out here so go easy on me, but.. I actually like the design
You are not alone..... so do I :LOL:. Do I want a folded poster or a pin badge; no thank you. Do I want the steel; yes please.

I don't buy every ToC release but this is a favourite Bond movie and I like the design based on the opening sequence. Will probably be disappointed in the finish but may be pleasantly surprised ( :dunno: ). Also:
The taste of steel is too strong...

Poster needs to be a 6" banner (3-4 ft wide) - rolled up so no creases

Agreed. But... it's probably too much effort to pack them separately and would most likely just be another excuse for them to raise their prices even more. Personally I'd rather they scrap posters altogether (who has the wall space for them all anyway?) and either replace them with something else, or just lower the price - my preferred option, since the steel and pin is enough for me.
