I used to know that. There are two Bond sets and one Buffy. I don't think the Buffys are numbered. I have a box full of the Johnny Lightning cards for these sets I never opened, but was never able to complete any of the sets.

The James Bond Johnny Lightning promo set has 80 cards. The corgi promo set for James Bond has 50 cards and I don't know how many the Buffy set has. Hopes this helps

I have 18 of the Buffy cards, so there are at least that many.

It seems that they are quiet few and far between as I have only seen about 6 James Bond not expensive but with 80 in the set there is possible a full set will never come up same with Buffy also I recall seeing an Angel Johnny Lightning but could be a part of the Buffy set

I remember going to hobby shops and Toys R Us to find these cards, never being able to make myself take the cars out of the blister packs to remove the cards. I had them stuck all over the place on my bookshelves, then got tired of dusting them and put them all in a box. I made lists of the cards I had and used them to make sure I didn't buy any duplicates, which I wound up doing anyway. The few freed cards I have were bought from a dealer for $6 apiece, which, considering the cars were about that same price is not such a bad deal. I think the cards were available somehow from Inkworks individually, but I don't know under what circumstances. In fact, I think my dealer may still have a number of these for sale, but I'm sure the price has gone up.

Don't know about the Buffy cards but for Bond...

The Corgi set has 50 cards - made for the UK market.

The Johnny Lightning set is numbered to 80 but made up of two separate model car releases:
Series 1 (50 cards) and Series 2 (30 cards) - made for the US market.
Johnny Lightning Series 1 uses identical images to the Corgi set - the difference between the sets being the Corgi or JL branding.
All the cards use identical images from the Inkworks Bond base sets GoldenEye, Connoisseur Collection 1-3 and The World Is Not Enough, but this time with the colourful banners at the bottom of the card fronts and the checklist tick-boxes on the back.

A full set of either Corgi or JL was a very rare thing indeed and I painstakingly pieced most of these together (but still don't have a full set) when it was very difficult to find each card, usually still attached to a car, making shipping a killer.

Then Inkworks went bust and a tonne of these hit the market, and are much easier to find now. Complete sets come up fairly regularly and singles are far more abundant, particularly from a UK seller who got much of the liquidated stock.

That's good to know, X. Maybe I'll try to find some of these myself now.

There's a complete set of the Corgi Bond cards on Ebay (not mine) for $250.00. That's $5.00 a card which isn't bad considering it's all them at once.

Thanks for that I was given a set of Corgi ones and they did not look like they had been taken from car packs as they were too crisp for that and I wondered about that I am more interested in the Johnny Lightning ones so there mite be hope yet
