These might need to go into a Feb thread, if previous form is to be observed.

Or, just one Recent Acquisitions thread to cover all needs.

A couple of different type of posters for me I've just picked up, both Bond:

Licence To Kill - Jap B2 - This is the first Jap poster I've ever bought, massive fan of the two Dalton Bond films, probably in the minority here but I've always felt Dalton was highly underrated in the role and his two films
(for me) are two of the best in the whole Bond series.

TMWTGG (Guinness) - This one is certainly different and is probably as much a Guinness poster as it is Bond, it's basically a Guinness/Bond tie-in poster, as can be seen it uses most of the same fantastic art work from the
UK Quad poster but cleverly adds in a Guinness theme to the artwork.

Congrats on the Guinness Golden Gun poster.  Looks to be in top shape.

Took me a while to find this, at a reasonable price.

Appreciate that Simes, thank you!

It's certainly a cracking little unique poster for sure, as for the condition it's probably one of the best posters I have in my collection condition-wise, was very happy to find it.

Yes, cool Guinness poster, John!  Hey, from what show is your avatar? And, "yes" I believe it is an avatar and not an actual picture of you!  Okie

Cheers! Okie.

The avatar picture is certainly not me ;D it's the late actor Jon Pertwee, the picture of him here is from the film "Carry On Screaming" he was in a few Carry On films in minor but memorable roles, but he's probably best known in the UK for playing Doctor Who & Worzel Gummidge.

Ah, makes sense with your "Carry On" poster search, John!  I have to admit, I'm very glad you said Dr. Who as I had no idea on who is Wurzel Gummidge without the help of the internet.  My best, Okie

T

Carry On posters are posters for the Carry On film series, the Carry On's are a British comedy film series, the first one Carry On Sergeant was released in 1958 and the last one Carry On Columbus in 1992.

Some of the best and most collectable Carry On posters had artwork done by Tom Chantrell.

There's some great art on the UK Quads for some of the carry On films T.

Check out Carry on Jack, Carry on Screaming and Carry on Cleo (recalled because of the similarity to the Burton/Taylor flick Cleopatra). These are probably the best of the bunch in my opinion.

Carry on Cowboy & Carry on Spying aren't too shabby either.

Good picks all those ones Marc, I'd also add the Carry On Cabby Quad to the list as well ;)

Agreed John, just looked up the image of Cabby and that's a nice one as well.

I don't collect Carry on posters but it seems Cabby is a rare one as well?

I see a London dealer claiming it's one of the rarest out there. Is that true? It's priced at over 4K  :o

The Cabby UK quad was the last Carry On poster I picked up, I have it posted on these forums, it's considered the second rarest Quad in the series only behind the pulled/banned Cleo Quad.

I think I know the dealer you mention, (atthemovies by any chance?) from experience I think they always go over the top with their prices, I've never bought from them myself but have checked out their site from time to time, maybe they get away with their prices as they are located right in the heart of London? your guess is as good as mine ;)

As for the price, most places when they have one have it around the £3000 range nowadays.
