Published on: 8th December 2014

The company has signed a licence to sell Corgi and Scalextric-branded James Bond products, Hornby-James-Bond-480with the new range to be unveiled at the London Toy Fair.

Bond is back in the headlines after last week’s announcement that the 24th film in the series will be called Spectre and released next November.

Hornby chief executive Richard Ames said that the deal will continue a long partnership between the company and the property, commenting: “James Bond has been a fantastic licensed partnership for our brands going back over 50 years, with Corgi’s Aston Martin DB5 from the movie Goldfinger winning the very first toy of the year award in 1965.”
