More information about the James Bond Aston Martin

Posted by ,

LEGO has published another teaser image for an upcoming James Bond set on Twitter, confirming that it will form part of the Creator Expert theme. Several recent quotations posted on both LEGO's and James Bond's official Twitter accounts have strongly suggested that this set will be an Aston Martin DB5.

Furthermore, a 'top secret' event will be taking place at the Leicester Square LEGO store in London on the 18th of July, running between 10:07am and 1:00pm. This will involve a signing with the designers of the upcoming set and Brickset will definitely be in attendance so let us know in the comments if you are planning to visit as well.

There is certainly a great deal of potential for interesting functions in a LEGO Aston Martin DB5. What would you like to see in such a set?

Very exciting! Love what they did with the start time!

If is an old DB5, it will be a great set.

Ooh, sounds unique. I have my hopes up!

creator expert, eh? how about a modular with Q's lab instead of a car? ^_^

At the very least it needs to have rotating plates, ejector seat and pop up bulletproof shield, if it has pop up guns in the hood I hope there's no stud firing or flick missile BS since this is for big boys n girls :)

Hope it's similar in scale to the Mini/Beetle/F40/Caterham.
Love the DB5. If it sells well, they could then attempt the Lotus Esprit/Sub from "Spy", with alternate parts for either car or sub. One can dream... ;-)

“Ejector seat? You must be joking!”

Being a Creator Expert car, i feel that the liklihood of a minifigure is low.

Considering estimated price, I would like to see a really accurate design first. This car is so emblematic that no global shapes shall be approximate : we are now in 2018 and available Lego parts allow to come close even to very specific curves and shapes . And of course talking about 007, secret equipments are required (even if there is no lethal and existing weapons to keep compliant with Lego politics about the matter). But first of all respect of shapes and color scheme of course.

See you there!

I'd still love some minifigs - after all UCS sets have them as well...

Gravatar
By in Australia,

... that doesn't sound like a very secret meeting to me, though.

By in United Kingdom,

price should be around £120-140 range based on an accidental Lego store pre-order page leak.

By in United States,

I don't know anything about 007 but this looks pretty cool.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I strongly suspect it will be an Aston Martin DB5 similar in size to the DeLorean Time Machine (21103) or maybe The Joker's Notorious Lowrider (70906). It will probably be an 7-8 stud wide car with Bond and one other minifigure- perhaps Auric Goldfinger or Oddjob. I think it'll be Oddjob since his weaponized hat is typical of Lego weaponry and the character is well-known amongst the Millennial target audience from his appearance in the GoldenEye video game.

If it's just the car, expect a $40-50 price point, if it's $150, it will probably be a full playset

Ejector seat, machine guns, rotating number plate and the bullet shield...........without these it's not complete

Gravatar
By in United States,

@CopperTablet I highly doubt that. Given that it’s confirmed to be a Creator Expert set, and the fact that it’s a VIP early access set, we can expect a price range of $100-$150. The teasers have also suggested that it will include the famous gadgets from the James Bond films. With that in mind the scale should be similar to the Creator Expert MINI Cooper and Volkswagen Beetle to fit those features without resorting to an all-Technic design. The ejector seat will be the most obvious feature, but we’ll probably see rotating licence plates and a rear bulletproof shield.

I know it won’t happen, but I’d personally liked to have seen the use of a light brick in the center stack to illuminate a map like James Bond used in Goldfinger to track Goldfinger in Switzerland.

By in Jordan,

@CopperTablet It's a Creator Expert set, so it's more likely to be a 1:17 scale model of the DB 5.

By in Canada,

I doubt they'll be able to fit all the gadgets into the car, but I really hope it at least has:
- interchangable license plates
- ejector seat (in some form, with at the very least a section of the roof that can be flicked off

I'd be incredibly surprised if they don't have some sort of ejector seat based on the marketing.

A rear bulletproof shield that can raise up would be cool, a compartment with droppable black studs (oil), and wheel-destroying blades that you can add to the rims would all be additional bonuses, but not deal breakers if they weren't included.

Yet another Ideas project, magically turning into an official set. Hmm...

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

I'm curious to see what colour it'll be. Pearl Silver or Light Bley?

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Nesquik Um, none of us have even seen the actual LEGO set. As Aston Martin and James Bond are both pre-existing intellectual properties, you could say the person submitting the idea is as guilty of stealing as LEGO is (not that either party is guilty of anything, but that's the implicit logic here).

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I'm really excited for this i think at a minimum it needs to have:
- Revolving license plates - perhaps using parts such as 18677 and 2780
- A telephone in the right-hand door
maybe also extendable bumpers or browning machine guns in the sidelights
I hope the box art is similar to the new style of box art they've been using for the star wars UCS sets - it's nice and simplistic but not too simplistic

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Would be nice to see all the 007s there signing boxes. I'd grab more sets for my brothers and best friends. Sadly this will not be happening...
Will see what the set brings but my girlfriend will be upset again that I spend more on Lego than our holiday!

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Anyone know price like a rough estimate

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Josh103 It will be a little bit more expensive than the London Bus.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I can’t see why it should be more than the bus unless it’s because of the licensing. The other creator expert cars ranged from £74.99-84.99. The bus was £109.99 because it had around 500 pieces more than the others. This surely will have a similar piece count as Ferrari/beetle so should be within that similar price range.

Event starts at 10:07 - I like it :-D

By in United Kingdom,

the preorder was 50k HUF so roughly £135

Hotel & Train Tickets Booked!!

First time going to this store and an Lego event of this type

Excited!! Hope its available to buy

Gravatar
By in Puerto Rico,

I just hope it comes with a minifigure.

Gravatar
By in France,

I’d love it to have as many of the gadgets already mentioned.

My real concern is the colour. If it’s silver I’ll be buying it immediately. If it’s grey hmmmmmmmm

I’d really like a minifig and UCS plaque as well

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Minifigures would be great - as well as Bond, should at least include Q.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I'd much rather have a later DB model myself

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

If it involved Daniel Craig it would be cool. I’d like a Lego Daniel Craig, I don’t think I have one......? (Apart from maybe a Stormtrooper)
Better time would be 00:07

By in Australia,

Cue the Bond Brickheadz.
(or Q the Bond Brickheadz).

Gravatar
By in United States,

Thinking about the IP, James Bond seems like a great fit for a Lego video game, does it not?

Gravatar
By in Ireland,

I would expect it to have the same functions as the old Corgi model; ejector seat, changing number plates, bullet proof screen and pop=out machine guns.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Being creator hopefully it looks better than the ugly technic Porsche

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I was hoping for it to be more affordable. I also didn't want it to be a DB5 cos I have no nostalgia for the old films. I think the series is overrated for the most part. Nonetheless, I'm interested to see what functions and detail they can fit into the set.

Gravatar
By in United States,

At this price, I hope they manage to cram every function the real DB-5 in there.

A Speed Champions set, I feel would have been better, given 10 of those (which would cost about the same ) would move quicker than a $150 set. I think Lego's reason for losing money is their habit of making bigger, and bigger sets the average family, especially in rural areas like mine, can't afford. And at the same time, ditching pocket money lines that sold well like Racers.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Miss money penny is making arrangements for the trip to Leicester Square, just off to Q's Lab for weapons update for DB5.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Damn, I have been scaling back the Lego spend recently...then they do this! Its a day 1 for me...another set I won't have time to build, or room to display!

Gravatar

Picture on-line! Looks nice. :D

By in Poland,

Does anyone else share my doubts regarding how for does James Bond fit the LEGO brand values :)? It's not that I'm personally not excited - I am super excited! Just asking...

Gravatar
By in Poland,

Well, that is what disappointment looks like.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Badgeroo I just built the Technic Porsche yesterday. I'd suggest if you think it's ugly you just get a die cast metal replica. I think it is a masterpiece for the medium of Lego Technic.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Badgeroo Lol! True. It’s still a really well designed set, though

Gravatar
By in Germany,

@lazpapa: looks boxier than I would have hoped, but altogether not too bad.
But there doesn't seem to be an ejector seat function, at least no separate part in the roof that could come off like in the film. Revolving number plates otoh seem to be a given.
Can't really wrap my head aroud the purported price of up to 150 Euro though as it doesn't really look any bigger than the Mini, Beetle or F40 to be honest.

By in United Kingdom,

@Revanant thanks for the link its really useful to compare the real car with the box art. There actually are a lot of the features and detail of the DB5 in the model. What you don't (and can't) get are the gentle curves which make it a DB5. The article slates it saying ther is nothing in common but if you work down the car the detail of the bumpers, grill, mirrors, airvents are all there. The one thing you didn't have on a sportscar from the 1960s was a flat panel (and there are a few of them on the Lego version).

Gravatar
By in Germany,

Car will be 149,99 EUR in Germany

Gravatar
By in Germany,

Sorry to say but it doesn't look like it's worth 149.99 Euro to me.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

Oh my God, I must have this.. It hope it has gadgets!

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

Just saw the leaked image and it does look way too boxy. I'm honestly wondering if it's the real thing because it looks nothing like a DB5. I don't understand how, after the VW Camper, the Mini, The F40 and the Caterham there can be a car like this.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Even though this isn't the best bond car (white Esprit of course) this is an almost must buy for me as I love all the licenced TV/film related sets we've been treated to over recent years. However if it doesn't have working features like the revolving plates, ejector seat etc I'll be very disappointed.
