There are many different strands for James Bond collectors to collect and this feature looks at collecting James Bond 007 Jigsaw Puzzles. We also include a price guide on some of the puzzles that have been sold at auction.
Arrow Games produced a series of great jigsaw puzzles in the 1960s to tie in with the film franchise. As far as we can see there were four in the series. The set includes classic scenes from Goldfinger (Aston Martin ejector seat), From Russia with Love (Helicopter chase), Thunderball (Sean Connery wearing jet pack and scuba diving scene). Each jigsaw puzzle was 375 pieces.
