Mel are you saying Adam is a fellow Elite collector, or just stirring up boring stuff?

I don't ever recall Adam referring to himself as some "elite, 5 star collector," either. 

But I could be mistaken.  coffee

Yep. For safety reasons I worship Ari's five starness from afar.

Oh, come on Stevie, your list is far from complete.  Where are the entries on other elite collectors?  You should employ thy wit on them as well. 

Adam, whose "James Bond love affair, ultimately, has culminated in him being the owner of the world's largest invisible Bond collection"?

Jeff, who has made 5,000+ "squee" posts on the various movie poster forums but who apparently doesn't actually own any movie posters? 

Carson, the clever and beguiling charlatan collector who reportedly sought asylum in Ecuador in 2010 after Holiday threatened to "get medieval" on him?

Mirosae, the Bogart-lusting femme collector who has somehow survived almost a year amongst the horny bastards/drunkards/nerds on this forum?

So..Mel..in which category you place yourself, the horny bastard, the drunkard ....or the nerd? Looking at your posters, I will say that you could well fit in any of the three..but I am guessing more number three huh? . :-*

I think Mel needs a category all to his own.  Like "That's just Mel being Mel!"...  Otherwise, I feel any description or term we apply may once again destroy his own personal poster-time-continuum resulting in collecting only late 70s B paper and selling off his current collection again...

Mek is like the Virgin Mary of poster collecting, except Mary is spelled Mel, and he never had a baby.

Just to make people aware, members I know and members I don't, that Bondposters.com is a reference website made up of items not just from my own collection. Reason I added an online store was to sell in one place as opposed to another website in the belief it would make things easier, but this caused a problem. Bondposters.com was and is after all a reference website, so in the end having an online store was confusing for many people. Therefore, I created a new selling website and returned Bondposters.com to a reference-only website which was and is the right thing to do.

Also, with regards to the comments about "largest collection"; this was a quote from someone else and I used it naively (if some noticed, I hadn't actually changed that content since it was created 4-5 years ago). Hindsight is a wonderful thing as I should not have used that quote - I got into creating websites and content blind, so learning what to use/what not to use and what to say/what not to say in several mediums is a very interesting process and something I advise others to do - I learnt many things through completing an Advertising degree.

Not much else to say other than I just wanted people to know the above information and so I do hope Holiday and Thierry look at this and see that I should NOT have to continually defend myself to torrents of abuse from a certain member, especially with new members joining, as his words genuinely (and wrongly) damage my name. And for new members; he was invited to meet me and see my entire collection first hand even when he planned a trip to the UK, but he ignored me which should tell you everything.

ANYWAY...

If anybody is an elite collector, I put forward Simes as I do not believe he has been singled out as yet.
Very nice man. Very good collector. Very dedicated.

The other collectors I would mention have already been named.

Well said, and it's good to see you back and around, Adam.

And best of luck with the new online store; I hope it all comes together nicely and works out well for you.

Hi Paul,

Thanks.
Event was yesterday; went well, but was way too hot as there was no air conditioning - you'd think Pinewood Studios would be equipped with it.
Best wishes,
Adam

Thanks Ted!
Not yet! - Waiting for several things to materialise then maybe, just maybe ...

Event was good, very niche market - BOND - and limited tickets - 120 - but even then things were good because people knew what they wanted. Ended up buying a DVD standee for Skyfall off the guy next to me for a very nominal amount at the end of the day! Luckily, it came with its bag and folded down.
Best wishes,
Adam
