Can't believe no one has proposed this before, but it appears not.....

Since the future of the James Bond franchise appears to be in doubt, please feel free to appoint yourself production designer of the next one, script and title of your choice, and produce a model of some hardware for your proposed movie.

Some ideas:

Gadgets. These could be 1:1 scale! Got an old nose-hair trimmer that's just crying out for a concealed laser? Now's your chance.... evil

Vehicles. Plenty of kits of swanky sports cars about,  just needing the rockets and rotating number plates. Or you could get more creative: folding helicopter blades in the boot (trunk)? At the other end of the scale, there's those SSBN-swallowing supertankers....

Villain's bases. Bit of cross-over with vehicles, of course. You could do the whole base, or just a diorama of the bad guy's stealth helo in it's volcano crater-floor hangar...

Over to you..............

I'm Bond-fan (and expert) from long time ago and I love this idea. But I don't think seriously that the franchise is at risk to close now; in the past there have already ste crisis, both creative and productive and I'm optimistic.
Now I think that the right next bond car it can be, for example, a Range Rover Sport (whit hidden hovercraft system) and, of course, the new Aston Martin. Bentley Convertible? I don't if is a good idea....
Villain's base: i think something like a S.H.I.E.L.D. sthealt carrier: a very very big flying aircraft carrier, heavily armed. Other solution: a mooonbase in the dark side of the moon.
The villain's henchmen could have the cars with hidden gadgets such as Zao's Jaguar.
New stories: here is easy: there are a lot of very good novels from writer as Jhon Gardne and Raymond Benson.

Good idea but wouldn't this all fit under the Movie GB idea which I believe is already on the enormus idea list?

I personally think a flying car is long overdue in a Bond movie. Armed to the teeth, of course. Thumbs Up

Maybe it would. It all comes down to the ever-imponderable focus-vs-breadth argument re GBs. On the one hand, a very broad GB encourages (it's argued) wider participation, but on the other hand, the limitations of a more narrowly focussed GB can often be inspiring. The JBGB isn't really very narrowly focussed in any case. I deliberately put it in the context of a future unmade James Bond movie (it could even be a past, unmade JB movie), and since James Bond movies have used all sorts of hardware from classic to sci-fi, that's a pretty wide scope.

One more point on advisable rules: when choosing names for Bond Girls, do bear in mind that this is a family website......Wink

Didn't the villain escape in one, somewhere in SE Asia I think?

It was a Mizar I think, a Ford Pinto hatchback with wings and tail clamped onto the roof, with the engine right above the driver/pilot. It always sticks in my mind because the 'hangar' had fold-down upper walls so the wings could get out!  Grin AFAIK it was unarmed though.

Anyone remember the film, 'The Man with the Golden Gun' perhaps?

The Scaramanga's flying car in "The Man With The Golden Gun" was an AMC Matador 2-doors coupe Smiley

Yep, it was Scaramanga & Nik Nak in The Man with the Golden Gun.  I think the car was an AMC Matador?  I know there have been a handful of real cars that have flown in a similar manner with a detatchable wing, but I think that the car was a prop & it was a model that we saw flying.

EDIT, the Man in Black beat me to it! Party

OK, so it was a small American car anyway, and I only 'do' BIG American cars.  Grin Wink

At least I got the car that was used for the Mizar project correct, even if the real thing was a disaster. One wing came off in mid-air!  Undecided Shocked

Always thought the Frog Sea Vixen tail booms might work for the Man with the Golden gun flying Matador, if you could find a kit of a Matador.
