Arrived today. This go around, Metal Bullet vs. Plastic. Richer gold and significantly heavier. First two pics are my older SE edition9399C990-9966-4D57-9E58-48F4A540E770.jpeg30781226-99EA-422C-8CEA-F474A620587C.jpeg0FCFD8C8-59CB-46D7-BFA5-7556F83C890E.jpeg50F1B00F-21B1-475A-8840-9793CECFA984.jpegDBC86E79-196F-492B-92FC-627FF3395DBF.jpeg4363EC22-63F7-489D-932D-E156498884C2.jpegCB6D67BE-2ECC-4CE2-BBF7-C8677F4BE5AC.jpeg3BBC10C7-5172-49FF-B5A5-C3D0CEBA28DB.jpeg8327C87A-424B-4C2E-B1DD-DF645336AE97.jpegB8CDEE75-9BEE-412B-937D-DE8918A42C9D.jpeg602C693B-55BF-4C64-9A76-7D81CD5C7FF3.jpeg809A92EA-972B-4EE7-A4DB-2792AB145512.jpeg6179A73E-8840-4A5A-9EF7-DCA47227249E.jpegB7A9375B-4134-4A74-8A03-E568A89E35E3.jpeg72913EE1-2CC2-487E-8653-1BE831EDCB1B.jpegA775DFE0-F88E-4562-9CCC-060182F539B7.jpeg9866B65E-253C-4BDE-BB21-62A9A5D91749.jpeg7A551EB6-6909-402D-AC4C-B2FDF5A50E7A.jpeg

Great piece GC! This seemed to come out right on time or close to it.

How do you like this new display case over the older acrylic stand?
I bought it for just that reason. I like the case display idea so you can display the individual pieces. The older style was more set up for the assembled gun only. This new style you at least have different options. Also as in the original form it still fits in a Detolf. The price point for the “preorder”( god I hate that word now) was pretty reasonable IMHO at $699.00. They sold out and I am not surprised. A few folks were upset they released this again but as a LE they basically can make as many as they think they will sell. The quality this go around with the improvements cannot be understated starting with the heft which is significant as it is indeed, heavier than the earlier model, the larger thread for the cuff link, the metal bullet vs. the old plastic bullet, the moveable pen clip that allows you to arrange the pistol site correctly and the even darker gold. I am glad I have the SE edition as those Wonderful actors are not coming back however this LE is the best I have seen and the Improvements really go a long way. You will not regret buying this LE version vs. the older LE version.

Thanks for your input! I don't have any really nice 007 replicas but have been toying with the idea of picking one up. This is high on the maybe list. I have a couple of lightsabers I need to track down first.

Sorry I’m not assembling this one as it will be displayed as is. The first two pics are the older unit and it almost identical except for the deeper color
However here is a video of the exact unit being assembled for comparison. Enjoy
