This is a numbered limited edition of only 500 pieces.
The replica is made up of big and little brother magnetic metal homers, a high quality display case and stand, a certificate of authenticity, prop story book and a numbered plaque. The transmitting homers, are Q Branch creations issued to James Bond as part of his field equipment in 1964’s Goldfinger. This Factory Entertainment prop replica has been created after a careful study of the original props in the Bond Archives to ensure maximum accuracy.
Backstory. The smaller device was standard field issue for all agents. Its larger brother was designed to track vehicles from a receiver built into the dashboard of Bond’s iconic Aston Martin DB5, with an effective range of 150 miles. After being captured by Goldfinger and flown to the USA, Bond activated the smaller homer and concealed it in a special compartment in the heel of his shoe while on en-route. This alerted the CIA and MI6 to Bond’s location and allowed them to keep Goldfinger under close surveillance, eventually foiling his plot to irradiate the gold in Fort Knox. The film used a little cinema magic and used a solid brass small homer. As brass is non-magnetic Q simply dropped the smaller homer onto the larger one, giving the illusion of a magnetic attraction.
Details. The replica is made up of the two homers, a museum quality display stand and cover, numbered limited edition plaque, certificate of authenticity and a detailed prop story booklet. It is also presented in a 007 branded box, protected within an outer shipping carton. Requires 3 x LR44/A76 batteries (included).
The large homer is machined from solid stainless steel and aluminum and contains a powerful magnet. As in the film, it also features a spring-loaded slide which emits an electronic ‘beep’ when pulled back to tell you it’s armed. Release the slide and it springs back into place ready for action. The smaller homer is crafted from highly polished brass alloy to allow for a magnetic attraction. The design features a manual pull-back arming slide and is attracted to the larger homer when placed nearby.
