Naomie Harris Unveils New LEGO James Bond Aston Martin DB5
Miss Moneypenny herself, Naomie Harris, has today exclusively revealed LEGO’s latest collaboration at their UK flagship store in Leicester Square – the LEGO Creator Expert James Bond Aston Martin DB5. It. Is. Awesome.
Yes, featuring 1,290 pieces, the new Aston Martin DB5 model is the latest in the LEGO Creator Expert series and features a whole load of authentic Bond gadgets and gizmos to mirror those found in 007’s DB5 first seen in Goldfinger and more recently in Skyfall.
Naomie Harris presented the new and exceptionally-detailed 1:8 scale LEGO DB5 model of the iconic car this morning alongside a real life silver birch Aston Martin DB5. Speaking at the launch, Harris said: “It’s such an honour to be here. To see the iconic DB5 reimagined in LEGO brick form is such an exciting moment to be part of and the attention to detail on the model is truly remarkable.”
LEGO designer Michael Psiaki added: “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.”
Ahead of the unveiling, those in attendance in London were treated to a bespoke, private guided tour of iconic James Bond props, including the 1/3 scale model of the Aston Martin DB5 from the explosive final scenes in Skyfall 2012, Bond’s Driving Licence, and more.
The LEGO Creator Expert James Bond Aston Martin DB5 is available now exclusively at LEGO stores and over at the LEGO Website for £129.99.
