Indonesia may have Venom Cheese, but we have a LEGO James Bond Aston Martin DB5, so really, don’t these sorts of things have a tendency to level off in the end? As per the folks at LEGO, this building set is a fitting tribute to the most iconic automobile of James Bond’s illustrious career (so far):
“This impressive replica model captures the elegance and timeless sophistication of Agent 007’s iconic 1964 sports car, and comes with a wealth of authentic details and functioning gadgetry. Open the doors and you’ll discover a detailed interior with a concealable radar tracker and a door compartment containing a telephone. And when it’s time for action, activate the passenger ejector seat, turn the revolving number plates, raise the rear-window bulletproof screen, deploy the wheel-mounted tyre scythes and pull back the gearstick to reveal the front wing machine guns. This collectible model car also features a detailed straight-6 engine, drum-lacquered silver front and rear bumpers, moulded silver-coloured wire wheel rim inserts and front and rear Aston Martin logos.”
Now for the catch: The LEGO James Bond Aston Martin DB5 is available only to members of the LEGO VIP program, and even then it’ll set you back a Goldfinger-worthy $150 bucks from the brand’s online store here. But wider availability is reportedly scheduled for next month. Try to get it all back in one piece, 007.
