007 James Bond Astin Martin ejector seat works great!

I recently got the James Bond Astin Martin and it's pretty fun to play with. My son and I had fun getting this photo. That's legit how high the bad guy will launch. I did photoshop out my hand and use an alternate angle of the chair as you can see in this unaltered photo

Also, this works really well with my micro-fogger!

I also tried my hand at painting one of my figures in gold, but the spray paint was a bad idea. I'll try again with a gold pen

AMAZING!

And that second one is a real unchanged pic?  :o 
(mind boggles)

As to the lever think, I found it needs a lot of strenght, imo... Anyways, mine is unlikely to really do that again... like most blinky-winkies (this is one such... because.. :P )

Great images! It's a great looking set. I held off because I assumed the Mercedes gull wing would be in silver too, but it's going to be white racing instead. May get this one eventually after all.

Mine doesn't work great.  :'( Where the ejector lever should be on mine, there is just an empty hole.  8} I bought 2 sets & gave one away as a Xmas present; I was clueless until my brother-in-law showed me what his car looks like.

I showed Deluxe Toy the problem & then called PM USA. PM said they would replace the car after they hear from Deluxe. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. The lever is not a separate piece and has no part number, & even if I could get a replacement lever, I'm not sure I could assemble it properly as it needed to be done in factory. PM agreed with me.

Wish me luck!  :lol:

That's really bad, JLMatterer - but hopefully they replace it - hope you get to keep the extra car!

Good luck!

Amazing photo!

If you haven't painted already, brass spray paint is pretty good for giving a gold result.
