No Time to Die makes retiring LEGO James Bond set relevant one last time

No Time to Die has finally debuted in cinemas in international markets, making the LEGO Group’s only James Bond set relevant one last time.

10262 James Bond Aston Martin DB5 is due to leave shelves by the end of 2021, which means you don’t have long left to pick up the gadget-packed car. And if you’re planning to see Daniel Craig’s final outing as Bond any time soon, it’s only going to increase any desire to grab the LEGO set before it’s gone.

Very mild spoilers for No Time to Die follow, although most of what we’re discussing here has already been revealed in the film’s trailers. But if you’re avoiding every last promo clip for the movie ahead of seeing it in cinemas, best to click away now to be on the safe side.

As glimpsed at the 1:15 mark in the trailer embedded above, the iconic Aston Martin DB5 returns in full force in No Time to Die, complete with extensive use of its gadgets. There’s no ejector seat – arguably the LEGO set’s best feature – but the car’s pop-up machine guns have plenty to do.

The iconic DB5 features in one of the film’s most exhilarating sequences (and that’s saying something), basically doing the LEGO Group’s work for it by selling 10262 James Bond Aston Martin DB5 as a very relevant set that’s well worth picking up before retirement.

In fact, we wouldn’t be surprised to see the set suddenly shift from its planned 2021 retirement to stay on shelves into 2022, although that’s pure conjecture on our part. If you want to guarantee owning a copy before it disappears for good, best not to wait around.

10262 James Bond Aston Martin DB5 is available now from LEGO.com for £129.99 / $149.99 / €149.99. No Time to Die is in cinemas in the majority of markets now, and will premiere in the US and Canada on October 8.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
