James Bond’s Aston Martin DB5 has been released by Playmobil. The car, which first appeared in 1964’s “Goldfinger,” has been adapted into an authentic replica by Playmobil for the first time, in a deal brokered for Aston Martin by IMG.
The 70578 James Bond Aston Martin DB5 – “Goldfinger” Edition from Playmobil is just like the full-size sports coupé. Individual parts with an eye-catching chrome finish recreate the appearance from the car’s starring role on the silver screen.
Along with many more authentically reproduced details, one highlight of the Playmobil model is the famous ejector seat; triggered by pressing the exhaust pipes, Bond’s adversary can be casually catapulted out of the roof through the removable panels. Other features taken straight from the movies include triple rotating number plates at the front and back, the retractable bulletproof armored bulkhead behind the rear window and the extendable ramming horns on the bumper. Hidden, retractable machine guns are also included at the headlights.
This set includes four James Bond film-related character figures: James Bond 007, Goldfinger, Oddjob and another of Goldfinger’s henchmen.
