Principal sculptor Stephen Mansfield is pictured working on the wax figure sculpt of Roger Moore, as Madame Tussauds London announces it will bring together all six Bonds for the first time in October. Moore played Bond seven times beginning with 1973’s Live, Let Die , is portrayed as he appeared in the 1977 movie The Spy Who Loved Me. - Madame Tussauds London today announced it is bringing together wax figures of ALL SIX James Bonds for the very first time this October, with five completely new wax 007s joining the existing figure of Daniel Craig. To coincide with the release of Albert R. Broccoli's EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, and Sony Pictures Entertainment's SPECTRE, the line-up of Connery, Lazenby, Moore, Dalton, Brosnan and Craig will appear at the legendary London attraction for a limited time only, before embarking on a tour of Madame Tussauds' worldwide. This unique experience, created in close collaboration with EON Productions, will give fans an opportunity to stand side by side with all six Bonds - in the same place, at the same time. Guests are invited to see how they measure up to each 007, pose with their favourite and take a stand out profile picture. Each of these new wax figures will be featured in a classic 007 dinner suit, designed by Oscar® winning costume designer Lindy Hemming, based on the original costume. The Madame Tussauds team already had access to measurements of Craig, Connery, Moore, Dalton and Brosnan from previous figures featured at the attraction but needed George Lazenby's to complete the picture. The star of On Her Majesty's Secret Service was happy to oblige and gave the artists a sitting in LA in February. "The kind of information we can gather at a sitting is hugely beneficial, even at a different time period to the figure we are creating," commented Stephen Mansfield, one of the Principle Sculptors on the project. "George was extremely entertaining and generous and we gathered an entire catalogue of measurements, photographs and footage. We are using those along with references from the film to create what we hope will be an authentic and lifelike figure." General Manager of Madame Tussauds London, Edward Fuller, is delighted to be hosting the line up on the first leg of their world tour. He commented, "It's very at Madame Tussauds - London, United Kingdom - Friday 24th July 2015

Sir Roger Moore, the veteran actor perhaps best known for his stint at portraying James Bond, has made the extraordinary revelation that there are plans afoot for an unofficial James Bond movie similar to The Expendables, which will feature all the old 007 actors.

In an interview with British tabloid paper The Sun, the 87 year old actor claimed that producers are hoping to feature him, GEORGE LAZENBY, Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan in a feature film – but at the same time admitted that Sean Connery isn’t interested.

Roger Moore Denies Racism Over Idris Elba James Bond Comments


Idris Elba Roger Moore

Roger Moore has attempted to clarify the comments he made about the possibility of Idris Elba becoming the next James Bond, after he was accused of racism. In the interview conducted with Paris Match magazine, Moore reportedly said that Elba could not play Bond because he was not "English-English" enough.

Roger MooreSir Roger made the comments to Paris Match magazine

“A few years ago, I said that [Cuba Gooding Jnr would make an excellent Bond, but it was a joke!” Moore stated in the interview. "Although James may have been played by a Scot, a Welshman and an Irishman, I think he should be 'English-English'. Nevertheless, it's an interesting idea, but unrealistic.”

'An Afternoon With Roger Moore': The Bond Actor On Remaking 'The Saint', Tony Curtis & UNICEF


Roger Moore Tony Curtis Audrey Hepburn

Spending an afternoon with Sir Roger Moore, regardless of the thousand or so additional members of the audience, is not something to be sniffed at. Moore has played a number of iconic roles during his 68 year career including James Bond and Simon Templar in The Saint.

Roger Moore
Roger Moore is "warming up" his fans before his autobiography due to be released next year.

Moore is on tour "warming up" his fans for his forthcoming autobiography which he hopes, should publishers allow it, to entitle "One Lucky Bastard" or, should this profanity prove too controversial, "One Lucky Fellow". The 86-year-old discussed his tour and upcoming memoirs with the BBC, it appears he had discarded other titles including "Moore on Bond or Moore or Less" after realising that he truly is "exceedingly lucky".

Bond's Infamous Lotus Esprit Goes For Half A Million, Purchased By Unnamed Collector


Roger Moore

One avid James Bond fan has purchased a piece of the 007 legend in the form of Bond’s infamous white submersible Lotus Esprit that appeared in the 1977 film The Spy Who Loved Me. The vehicle was sold at auction for more than £500 000, according to The Guardian. For you non-Brits out there, that’s almost $800 000 or in our humble estimates, far too much money for a car.

Roger Moore, For Your Eyes Only Still
Moore made for one adventurous Bond.

But the Lotus isn’t without its history to back up the ridiculous price. After becoming one of the stars of the 007 movie, it was lost to history for a while. Until 1989 when the iconic vehicle was found in a storage storage container in New York, purchased for $ $100 (£64). Even adjusting for inflation, that’s quite a bit lower than the car’s current price.

James Bond Lotus Submarine Car From ‘The Spy Who Loved Me’ Up For Auction For The First Time Ever


James Bond Roger Moore

James Bond fans could be able to own a mouth-watering piece of Bond memorabilia as long as they aren't afraid to splash their cash.

The Lotus submarine car used in 'The Spy Who Loved Me' is going up for sale at a Battersea auction in South London for the first time ever and is expected to go under the hammer for £650,000 to £950,000.

The ex-Bond car was specifically used and designed for underwater scenes in the 1977 Bond movie starring Roger Moore as 007, and is said to be still a fully functional vehicle. Maybe it doesn't have the 'button' Moore pressed to replace its wheels with fins as he guided into the ocean, in typical nonchalant Bond-esque style - as propellers emerged from the rear and a periscope popped out of the roof to transform it into the Lotus submarine - but it can still drive.
