LEGO’s Worst Kept Secret Is Out! James Bond’s Aston Martin DB5 Is At Your Service

LEGO has been teasing this for weeks and the secret is finally out (officially). This is a set fit for James Bond himself, assuming he had the attention span to sit in one place and assemble several hundred little plastic bricks that would recreate anything other than a woman. Honestly, I don’t think James Bond would be a LEGO fan, but I doubt he’d be a movie fan either so what does he know?!

This baby is loaded with all the latest gadgetry from the Q Branch of 1964. It’s a little boxier than the real deal, but that’s to be expected with a sexy beast like this and all it’s subtle curves. Personally, really like it, but I fear the $180 price tag will make it difficult to pick up if the run is short lived. That’s my Voltron money!
