Details have been released on the upcoming release from Rittenhouse card sets for the newest James Bond 007 film, Casino Royale.
As posted on the SciFiHobby forums, a different approach will be taken in regards to Casino Royale. Steve Charendoff posts that a ‘Mega-Bond’ set is planned. It will include many cards from Daniel Craig’s first Bond film, but also elements from the twenty previous 007 films.
What is also different is that the set is not planned for release around the film’s premiere in November, but rather the DVD release in March 2007. ‘We will inevitably have more autographs, more costume cards, more prop cards, more, more, more, because right now a lot of these elements are simply not available to us,’ says Steve Charendoff.
