Bond: “Ejector seat? You’re joking?” Q: “I never joke about my work, 007!”
Introducing the James Bond Goldfinger DB5 Ejector Seat Button Prop Replica. This is a 1:1 scale replica of the iconic Aston Martin gearshift stick with a flip-top concealing the button to activate the passenger ejector seat. Each is numbered and part of a series of just 1,964.
Backstory. Originally conceived by longtime Bond Production Designer, Ken Adam, the original prop was crafted using a combination of found-parts and specially machined components. It did not function, it was purely cosmetic. The same prop was recreated for 2012’s Skyfall.
Details. This replica has been copied from surviving material in the EON Productions Archive. The knob is crafted of aluminum and resin. It’s flip-up lid features a magnetic closure and a red momentary switch has been used for the famous button. Each replica is permanently mounted on a display stand finished with Silver Birch paint, printed with Goldfinger and Aston Martin logos and the number plate of the car. Packaged in a gift box with a numbered certificate of authenticity booklet.
Dimensions. H170mm/7", W90mm/3.5", D80mm/3”
Please note. Although it delivers a satisfying ‘click’, the replica does not activate an ejector seat and will not rid you of any unwanted passengers!
