Scroll down to see the other suits, including the grey suit recently seen in the latest James Bond film "Skyfall" with Daniel Craig reprising his role as MI6 Secret Agent 007 James Bond, the man with a license to kill.

I saw this right after posting my toy blog entry on the subject of Daniel Craig as James Bond in my previous two posts HERE and HERE, the first covering ZCWO's new 1/6 scale Ab02 Normal Size Male Body with Daniel Craig's head sculpt and the second on ZCWO's newest Mens Hommes Men's Fashion MH Vol. 13 which is a black tuxedo suit with weapons included.

Everyone seems to have a thing for Bond lately, with Brother Production also previewing their version of the British Super Spy with their Sky Fall MI6 Agent "Bone" 12-inch figure. You can view the pictures HERE

This particular NAT "The Agent" Limited edition Set comes with almost two complete suits with only one pair of shoes and socks missing. The black tuxedo is a must if you want him to be recognizable as James Bond.

The grey suit is a nice addition since Daniel Craig as James Bond wore it in "Skyfall".

The 1/6 scale head sculpt does bear some resemblance to the actor who played him in the last three Bond films. Skyfall is the twenty-third James Bond film produced by Eon Productions. The film's release coincided with the 50th anniversary of the Bond series, which began with Dr. No in 1962. It features Daniel Craig's third performance as James Bond, and Javier Bardem as Raoul Silva, the film's antagonist.

Daniel Craig achieved international fame when chosen as the sixth actor to play the role of James Bond, replacing Pierce Brosnan. Though he was initially greeted with scepticism, his debut in Casino Royale was highly acclaimed and earned him a BAFTA award nomination, with the film becoming the highest grossing in the series at the time. Quantum of Solace followed two years later. His third Bond film, Skyfall, premiered in 2012 and is now the highest grossing film in the series.

Craig describes his portrayal of Bond as an anti-hero: "The question I keep asking myself while playing the role is, 'Am I the good guy or just a bad guy who works for the good side?' Bond's role, after all, is that of an assassin when you come down to it. I have never played a role in which someone's dark side shouldn't be explored. I don't think it should be confusing by the end of the film, but during the film you should be questioning who he is."
