    Lego BrickHeadz 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    So S@H now confirms Venkman & Slimer release date on July 1 not August as previously reported. *edit* in Europe

    Meh. That's just a poor man's Trevi Fountain

    Issue with 10261 Roller Coaster

    Possible that something happened during transit rather than an actual build fault?

    James Bond 2018

    Delusional. Half the world's population have seen a Bond film, and it's a global event whenever a new movie (24 and counting) comes out or there's an actor change. They make BILLIONS. That's why Lego have secured the licence. I doubt even half your street has seen a Dr Who episode or even cares. Outside of the UK, those figures drop off the cliff entirely. Look I personally have no interest in Harry Potter, books or Lego sets, yet the fact they're being exhum...err sorry rereleased doesn't mean I repeatedly spam those threads with complaints above how, say, the Twilight series would be more popular and make more money for Lego. Because 1) it's patently not true, 2) I have respect for fellow bricksters who absolutely love HP Think you'd be better off spending your time on other forums amongst fellow Whovians. (sorry mods) ... Back on Aston Martin then, and with Bond 25 soon to start filming, it seems we may already know what his next ride is... *WARNING! MAY CAUSE EXCESSIVE DROOLING* The rear definitely has some DB5 in it.

    Creator Expert Car 2018 Speculation

    Even leaving aside the obvious Bond appeal, the harder lines of the beautiful DB5 would also be easier to create as a more distinctive and accurate build in brick form, compared to the more generic and curvaceous lines of its modern descendants like the DB9/DBS/Vanquish. I guess we'll find out soon enough. Preparing to be disappointed, hoping to be pleasantly surprised

    Someone posted in the Licensed James Bond thread...apparently reads "Limited Model - Coming Soon" I really hope the silhouette is just a placeholder but I doubt it. Given the licensing agreement, to then use it for something other than the iconic DB5 from Goldfinger (reappearing for more than a cameo 50-odd years later in Skyfall) would be an epic fail and a massive missed commercial opportunity.

    Yep. Eon Productions is about as British as it gets in the filmmaking industry, not sure why Digger believes Bond is an American franchise.

    James Bond 2018

    Assume the hyphen means that the Chinese text reads "Aston-Martin"? I know they're still current sets, but the juxtaposition of those older utility vehicles alongside the Vanquish looks a bit odd. It needs the retired F40 in there. Quite. Seems a bit of a p-tease and letdown now, if that proves to be the case. Oh and looking at the Mini and Routemaster, with an Aston on the way, the obvious gap is there for an old-style London black taxi. I'm calling it now for 2019 release

    James Bond 2018

    At a quick first glance, I also assumed it was a DB10 (first revealed by AM in Spectre) but on closer look (front skirt and curves) it looks more like an older Vanquish. That it's placed in the Creator line alongside the VW Camper, Mini et al means there'll be no minifig. So I wonder why they needed/tweeted/promoted the Bond license in that case?
  11. Really nice adaptation. May build similar with the kids, not comfortable with the artillery/machine gun.

    James Bond 2018

    Anyway, back on topic...sadly from the leaked silhouette, it seems it's not a Bond DB5 but a Creator-scale Vanquish

    Creator Expert Car 2018 Speculation

    I assumed it was a Spectre DB10 at very first glance given the 007 Twitter stuff. But yeah, you're right..the front skirt suggests a Vanquish. Disappointing.

    I missed this thread last month. I wish it'd stayed that way to be brutally honest.
