James Bond Archives- Final Edition.
I see that many of the autos and relics for this set are already for sale "you know where" as a pre-sale.

And the 3 "new" SkyFall auto/relics are not that much, so I guess they are pack inserted

I am still a hypocrite. I said I wasn't going to do this set at all but I ordered one box. Now the question is, open it or add it to my unopened box collection?

I am not a Bond collector but I don't see how this isn't the last set, just given the Connery cut incentive alone. If it isn't then what other "incentive" could you possibly offer for the next set that would even come close to that? Plus if there was more coming I doubt they would unload all these different Roger Moore autographs in the same set. But I'm sure I'll be proven wrong as usual. Twak

Maybe the licence is up for renewal and they think they may lose it, so, just in case,this time all in, but I hope not, my full bleed on going collection will not allow it.

The Archive Box Shima auto is WA56, one of the missing WA numbers

Still no word on WA 48

I think these are the strongest points to argue it could be the last set.

That said, there are several obvious and recent names RA must have got on Women of Bond cards we haven't seen yet like Kurylenko, Arterton and Seydoux.

I don't want to be wrong but I have little doubt we will set another set.

If this is the last set, then when will we see autos WA 48, and A291 and 294 ?

Can't believe that WA 56 will be so tough to acquire. Frown

Well we won't see them in this set, so it would have to be another one...

Annoyed about WA56 being so scarce too.

I commented about the WA56 on the RA forum and the response was that dealers will no doubt break open the Archive Boxes and sell the contents piecemeal, so collectors can acquire the auto that way

But if there are about 20 or so Archive Boxes in existence, how many of these WA56 autos will surface, that are not going to the collectors who are also scooping up the Connery auto ? Not many, I am assuming !

She has signed 200+ other cards, so as Wolfie implied, she has probably signed far more than 20 of these cards. Anyway Razz to Rittenhouse for doing such an artificially rare card

From what I have heard, the Archive Box is not the route to go, unless you want the Connery card. The Box does NOT contain :


The 9 case Christoper Lee auto

The 12 metal cards

The relic cards

All 4 Roger Moore autos (only has 1)


Not sure if this is true, but this is what I was told by a dealer

Has Lea Seydoux signed a 40th anniv auto card yet ?

No, no WoB either, just 2 full bleeds.

I'm thinking, Lea Seydoux signed X2 full bleed variant and no 40th anniv as being a no, same with all three Spectre signers to date, Rittenhouse have favoured 40th anniv to the point you think the head of the company must be collecting them, so I think there is more to come but maybe with a longer wait.
