Issued in 1971 and only sold for around 2 years Corgis Rockets are some of the hardest of the bond vehicles to find. Sold separately and in a gift set these are highlights in any diecast collection.  Most common loose is the SPECTRE Mercedes and hardest is the Escort. Interesting to note that the Mercedes only has a sticker on one side. Each comes with its own "Tune Up" key which has a paper label specific to each vehicle

Corgi included two Aston Martins in their short lived Rockets series.  Bizarrely neither was issued as a Bond vehicle, even though one was an Aston Martin DBS exactly the came as driven by Bond in OHMSS

Released as part of Corgis new whizzwheels range these OHMSS vehicles are considered by many to be the ultimate Corgi Bonds. Two bobsleds from the sled chase and a Volkswagen as seen in the ice rink race. Each was available seperately and also together as a gift set

Although only produced for a short time it is interesting to note that there are four different versions to each bobsled. The Volkswagen has two. All the versions relate to the packaging. Cards either do or don't have a black sticker above the Corgi Logo, this applies to all three vehicles. As for the bobsleds they can either be side on, as seen here, or they can be flat. These are not mistakes as the blisters are specific to each type. In my opinion the versions here are the best as they have the stickers and the vehicles are all in the same orientation
