James Bond Props Juliens 2014 auction
26 James Bond lots from 13 of the films will be auctioned off in Julien's Auction on Saturday 6th December 2014 in Beverly Hills.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
UPDATE 7-12-2014: Final sale prices listed below. The total amount raised from the James Bond lots (with 5 of 26 unsold) came to 72,056 USD.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
James Bond’s next assignment (SPECTRE) is to thrill auction go-ers as Julien’s auctions props, vehicles, set pieces and gadgets. Bond has some interesting ways of getting from point A to point B.

In Die Another Day (2002), Pierce Brosnan fought villainous thugs while driving an Osprey 5 hovercraft. Of the seventeen crafts built for the film, only a few survived destruction and one is offered for sale here.

Octopussy (1983) (1983) saw Roger Moore’s Bond flying the world’s lightest single engine jet. This BD-5J, built by stunt pilot J.W. “Corkey” Fornof, is offered to the high flying winning bidder.

Never one to simply drive a car, in Tomorrow Never Dies (1997) Bond used a mobile phone/ remote control for his escape from the bad guys. This prop, along with other props, posters and signed items are among the items in this 007 collection.
