One of the best things about James Bond are his toys. From fancy tech to cars and suits, Bond has it all. Now you can get one step closer to being a 007 Agent yourself with the James Bond Thunderball and Die Another Day Breather Prop Replicas from Factory Entertainment!
These marvelous 1:1 scale prop replicas are officially licensed and perfect for any Bond fan. They’re made from aluminum, brass, die-cast metal, and rubber, and are presented on a waterfall display to showcase the evolution of one prop to the next.
In 1965, Sean Connery used his underwater breathing tech to sneak into Largo’s lair through the shark-infested pool in Thunderball. About the piece, Q says in the film: “In the event of a rebreather not being available, you can use this device.”
For filming, Connery simply held the piece in his mouth while he held his breath. Pretty convincing, huh?
Fast-forward 37 years when Pierce Brosnan paid tribute to Connery in Die Another Day. The original prop is seen in the film but Brosnan gets an updated one to use when he, once again, sneaks into an enemy lair. This “rebreather” was more practical and comfortable for the wearer.
These replicas come with a certificate of authenticity and feature a numbered plaque, detailed prop story booklets, and an acrylic cover for proper protection. They are currently available at Entertainment Earth with free shipping.
