Solex Agitator

0
Prop replica (made by Bond fan Mick 'Quartermaster') of the Solex Agitator among other props from the movie The Man With The Golden Gun

The Solex Agitator is a small but very powerful device, used in the movie The Man With The Golden Gun (1974). In the film, the Solex Agitator is a device which can harness solar energy, created by British scientist Gibson as a solution to the global energy crisis. Gibson gets killed by Francisco Scaramanga (Christopher Lee) and Nick Nack steals the Solex after the assassination. Scaramanga then offers the Solex to the highest bidder, and includes a solar-powered laser cannon with it, "no extra charge". Eventually James Bond (Roger Moore) and Mary Goodnight (Britt Ekland) are able to get the device back.

The Solex Agitator is a fictional device, and it was designed and created for the movie. One of the original movie props was sold at an auction at Christie's in 2012 for £55,000 (approx. $85,000 or €70,000). The item on auction has a circuit board encased in resin, the metal casing engraved on the front H/220, and engraved post-production 'James Bond', the back engraved A/6B and H/220, with a Bond archive label.

 

2014 fan-made replica

In 2014, a very accurate prop replica was created by Bond fan Quartermaster Mick (see photo on top of this page). The case of the replica is machined from a solid aluminium block. The electronic circuit board and components are encased in clear resin, just like the original prop. There are over 50 component parts used in the piece.

 

2024 Factory Entertainment Solex Agitator Replica

Factory Entertainment has made a replica of the Solex Agitator, limited to 1000 pieces.

This replica is based on the original prop which contained a range of 1970s obsolete vintage electrical and computing components. Each has been carefully hand-duplicated. The frame is machined aluminum, and the core components have been recreated in resin and have been embedded into clear acrylic, exactly like the original prop.

Each Factory Entertainment Solex Agitator Replica is presented in a wooden display box and includes a certificate of authenticity booklet and an individually numbered metal plaque bearing the unique edition number of each piece.

The Factory Entertainment Solex Agitator Replica can be ordered at the 007Store for £199.
