The Lego James Bond Aston Martin, which Lego revealed today, is based off the car Sean Connery drove for Goldfinger; it is an expert-level set with 1,295 pieces. Build it correctly, and it has all the necessary spy gadgets: rotating licence plates, a bullet shield, a hidden phone, pop-out machine guns, tire slashers mounted in the wheels. And oh hell yes, it has an ejector seat.

Back in May, a real-life DB5 used on the set of GoldenEye was put up for auction for as much as $ 2.1 million. This toy collectible’s price isn’t quite so steep: Lego is selling it for $ 150, starting August 1. (You can take a look at it here.)

Get it for your kids this holiday season, although they won’t have a clue about its cultural significance, or get it for yourself and have a bit of fun. Unfortunately, it does not come with a mini James Bond Lego figurine. But Lego Batman will do in a fix.
