Space belongs to Bond

1979 saw the release of Moonraker, Roger Moore's fourth outing as secret agent 007. Hot on the heels of the success of Star Wars the Bond producers decided to make a 007 adventure that was quite literally 'out of this world'. This is perhaps one of my favourite films for the range of collectibles and memorabilia that was produced to tie-in with its release. Many of the items were aimed at a younger audience from gum cards, puzzles, space guns and even a sleeping bag from Canada. Here are just some of the items that were produced to promote the films release in 1979 and subsequently in the years since…
