Marvelous 1:1 scale, officially licensed reproductions of the underwater breathing apparatus from 1965's Thunderball and 2002's Die Another Day 007 movies, these James Bond Thunderball and Die Another Day Breather Prop Replicas are meticulously handcrafted from aluminum, brass, die-cast metal, and rubber. Presented on a waterfall display to showcase the evolution of one prop to the next, these Breather Prop Replicas include a certificate of authenticity. The Factory Entertainment Breather Evolution Set Prop Replicas feature a numbered plaque, come with detailed prop story booklets, and include an acrylic cover for proper protection. The edition size will not exceed 500 pieces.

The Replicas. The Factory Entertainment Breather Evolution Set Prop Replicas were created after exhaustive and careful study of surviving props in the EON Productions archives and reference materials, such as blueprints, photographs, and reference documents. Both replicas are an exact and precise copy of the original prop. Each finely crafted breather replica set comes with a museum-quality display stand, acrylic cover, numbered limited edition plaque, certificate of authenticity, and detailed prop story booklet.

As a Navy Commander, James Bond is well versed in the sub-aquatic and has used numerous underwater gadgets in his five decades onscreen, two of the most famous being the "breathers" seen originally in 1965's Thunderball and then revisited in a revised form in 2002's Die Another Day. While not the same prop, they share a common heritage, and this set showcases their evolution. You get both replicas in one set designed to honor and celebrate the art of the 007 film prop!

Thunderball Breather. Issued to Sean Connery's Bond in the Bahamas, the prop was famously used by 007 to infiltrate Largo's lair through the shark-infested pool. Utterly convincing on screen, the prop was simply held in Connery's mouth while he held his breath. It was created by the EON prop team at Pinewood Studios in England, manufactured from a mixture of custom-made machined parts and some pre-existing items, including the micro-sized gas canisters that were used to carbonate the contents of a soda siphon, a staple in most 1960s British households before the advent of widely available prepackaged soda. Often referred to as a "rebreather," this prop is never actually named in the film. Q simply says, "In the event of a rebreather not being available, you can use this device."

Die Another Day Breather. With direct homage to Thunderball, we saw the original Thunderball breather prop in the early part of the film in a drawer in 007's MI6 office. Bond, this time played by Pierce Brosnan, was issued a new updated version of the breather. Once again, it was used later in the film to enter an enemy lair undetected. Mirroring history again, the prop was also made by the EON prop team at Pinewood Studios, using a mixture of found parts alongside custom-made parts. The canisters this time were actually key chains in the style of miniature air tanks, manufactured by a sub-aqua supply company to store full-sized air-tank 'O' rings. These where repurposed and added to a central aluminum body. This prop was fitted with a more comfortable rubber mouthpiece from a commercially sourced snorkel. Ages 18 and up.
