Yes, we called it, after several weeks of teases, LEGO has finally pulled back on the curtain and shown off their latest licence; James Bond’s Aston Martin DB5, the most iconic car in the franchise.
The new LEGO Creator set, which gives fans the chance to piece together all 1290 parts to create 007’s classic vehicle, was revealed from a silver briefcase by Moneypenny actress Naomie Harris at 10:07 at the company’s flagship London store.
Coming in at 13 inches long with an interior that contains a tracking computer and hidden telephone, the classic car also comes complete with rotating DB5 licence plates and a working ejector seat.
LEGO designer Michael Psiaki was at the launch and spoke of the set:
“James Bond fans will go wild for all of the authentic features and functions we’ve put into this car including the tyre-scythes, pop-up machine guns, and working ejector seat. The iconic status of James Bond’s DB5 makes this car a perfect fit for the Lego Creator Expert series. We’re really excited to unveil our LEGO brick version of this elegant and timeless machine.”
The set is priced at £129.99 and will available from 1 August.
