Uncover the secrets of 007’s most famous vehicle with the LEGO® Creator Expert James Bond™ Aston Martin DB5

Combining a wealth of sophisticated gadgetry and the elegance of 007’s iconic Aston Martin DB5, LEGO Group have today announced the launch of the LEGO Creator Expert James Bond™ Aston Martin DB5, available exclusively from LEGO Stores and shop.LEGO.com from 18th July, 2018.

James Bond’s Aston Martin DB5 from the 1964 hit film Goldfinger is the latest in the LEGO Creator Expert series and features a wealth of authentic gadgets and gizmos all created in Q’s workshop.

The model has been designed to provide a challenging and rewarding building experience full of nostalgia—a must-have for fans of Aston Martin, James Bond movies and LEGO building sets.

Featuring 1,290 pieces, you can combine the understated sophistication of Aston Martin with the joy of LEGO building and create your very own piece of James Bond™ memorabilia. An authentic replica of the world-famous 1964 Aston Martin DB5 sports car, this 1:8 scale model includes many of the unique features showcased in Goldfinger, from a working ejector seat, revolving number plates, radar tracker, hidden telephone, bulletproof shield, front wing machine guns and wheel mounted tyre scythes’.

The exterior of the car, painted in Silver Birch just like the original, features the smooth curves and sleek edges of the original Aston Martin DB5 and includes key details including sloped headlamps and drum lacquered silver front and rear bumpers. The moulded silver wire wheel rim inserts also feature the iconic Aston Martin wings that match the wings on the front and rear of the car. Pop open the bonnet to find a detailed six cylinder engine and open the doors of the car to reveal a radar tracker, as well as a telephone tucked away in the secret door compartment.

This LEGO Creator Expert model packed with a wealth of James Bond™ gadgetry is sure to have fans rubbing their hands with excitement.

The finished model measures over 3” (10cm) high, 13” (34cm) long and 4” (12cm) wide, making this a perfect display piece whilst showcasing the timeless elegance of 007’s iconic sports car.

LEGO Ideas Voltron (21311) Review

LEGO Ideas Voltron (21311)

Some of you may know that I’m a huge fan of the show but I have pretty much collected a number of Voltron toys and to have this set in my hands is something I’ve never dreamed would have happened. For the background of the Voltron project on LEGO Ideas, Leandro Tayag was the fan designer and it only took him just three weeks to hit 10,000 supporters. As for the details of the set itself, it has 2,321 pieces and retails for $179.99 and will be available starting on July 23 for VIP members or August 1 for the general public.

LEGO Marvel Thanos SDCC 2018 Statue

LEGO Thanos SDCC 2018

LEGO has revealed another statue that fans attending San Diego Comic Con 2018 this week can take a picture with and that is the Mad Titan himself, Thanos. Standing at 8 1/2 feet tall and weighing in at over 450 pound, the model used 91,350 pieces to create. In addition to Thanos, Ultrakatty from The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part will also be on hand as well. I expect there will be at least a few more reveals before Preview Night kicks off on Wednesday. If you haven’t seen it yet, I’ve done a round-up of the LEGO happenings at SDCC 2018 which you can check out here.
