LEGO and the 007 franchise have joined forces to celebrate LEGO’s 90th anniversary and James Bond‘s 60th anniversary at the toy company’s newly-refurbished flagship store in London’s Leicester Square. Housed in the 805sqm space, LEGO’s largest shop in the world, are life-sized replicas of James Bond as a mini-figure, Blofield’s cat, and the iconic 007 Aston Martin DB5.
According to LEGO, the 1,037 kilogram DB5 model is made up of 357,954 bricks and took nearly 57 days to build. Features include a rotating license plate, functional headlights, a light-up dashboard, and an authentic steering wheel.
A smaller 298-piece James Bond 007 Aston Martin DB5 Speed Champions model will also be offered in-stores and online to commemorate the 1964-era icon. Head over to the 007 website for more information.
