    It is quite cool!!! It has many of the gimmicks of the full-sized car, with a removable roof section & ejector seat, ramming bumpers, rear bulletproof shield, extendable tire shredders, rotating license plates, as well as opening doors, hood, and trunk! It cost a pretty penny ($189 including shipping), but I'm worth it!

    Nice! When I was a kid the Corgi Toys DB5 in around 1/72nd scale with the same features was every boy's dream toy.

    As well as the other goodies it had a spring loaded ejector seat which threw the baddie about 2 feet in the air.

    I have one of the Corgis myself; I've had it for several years. I also have the Danbury Mint die-cast DB5 in 1:24 scale; like the piece pictured above, it has a load of gimmicks built in.

    One very special piece I have is the Gilbert Aston Martin DB5 battery-powered car; it has flashing lights to simulate machine guns, the rear bullet-proof shield raises & lowers automatically, the ramming bumpers extend & retract automatically, the ejector seat works and shoots the half-figure of the passenger quite a distance, and it runs around on the floor after displaying the gimmicks. It then stops and starts the whole cycle all over again. It's one of the best pieces of James Bond stuff I have!
