This is the Weapon set for ' secret Agent of Red Box' my thanks to Colin of Acme toy shop Erdington Birmingham, for saving this great set for me, i already have one Redbox Agent case, but it was nice to get another to Compare the two.
The Weapons come in a Plastic case and the set was made Obviously to cash in on the classic Multiple toys James Bond set, but it is a really nice little item on its own, it contains the great agent 707 Cigarette case, which can fetch up to £40.00 on its own on E bay, i think nearly every budding James Bond/Secret Agent child of the 60's and 70's had one of these cheap little items, the great novelty being it was a gun disguised in a Cigarette packet..How cool is that!
This set comes with 3 Badges , passport, ammo and 2 grenades , and some Keys???..the passport had been written in by the original young owner.
|i wonder where Ben Is now?|
|The Thumb Belongs to Me!|
The second badge i added from my first incomplete set to make a ( i think) a complete set..my first case contained a transistor radio, instead of the Cigarette case to disguise the gun..
|My First Incomplete Case|
The squirty Camera is the same, but a watch & Compass replace the Grenades.below are the 2 cases together so you can see some of the Differences..
|My new case & incomplete Old Case|
Another difference is, on my old case theres no writing under the logo, so i think this is a later variation, maybe late 60's early 70's ?, these are the 2 examples i know of, redbox repackaged the contents in another set which i don't have but i will be blogging about soon.
