#504 HERACLIO FOURNIER - MOONRAKER (1979)

 
It surprises me that there are some many toys about James Bond. From a modern point of view, the films are quite violent, there are some more or less explicit sex scenes, and there´s a lot of drinking and (before the 90s) also a lot of smoking.

The films, however, are quite cool... specially the cars and the many gadgets that James Bond uses in the films. Most toys are either based on these gadgets or are plastic or die-cast guns and weapons, what we would heute call "role-play" accesories.



 
I already showed two cars made by Corgi (see #33 and #407), but this time, I am presenting a deck of cards. It is a quartet deck with scenes from the film and some texts. There are 8 families (32 cards) plus the instructions card which is also the cover card.

Heraclio Fournier used to make many decks for children based on tv series, cartoons and also movies, although movies were somehow rarer. I also presented the deck Superman HERE (curiously made in the same year as this one). In the 60s and 70s movie decks were somehow more popular.
