A View To A Thrill

It's 1985 and Roger Moore retuns as 007 for one final mission, his seventh and last Bond adventure A View To A Kill. This is often classed as one of the weaker films, mainly in part to Sir Roger's advancing age, but it's still a fantastic romp and I really enjoy it. It also gave us some great Bond collectibles from toy guns to Smiths Crisps promo posters and what has been elusive to me so far, Wrights A View To A Kill promo soap, which I will get one day! Below are just some of the items produced at the time of the films release and since. So 'dance into my collection' and have a look…
