Licence to build Lego James Bond

LEGO Creator Expert, 10262, James Bond Aston Martin DB5. This is an impressive replica model which captures the elegance and timeless sophistication of Agent 007’s iconic 1964 sports car. It comes with great many details and functioning accessories. You can open the doors and you’ll discover a detailed interior with a hidden radar tracker and a telephone. When the action begins you can rotate the number plates and pull back the gearstick to reveal the machine guns at the front of the car!

LEGO Inside Tour 2018 Ferguson Tractor (4000025)

There are only around 80 to 100 box sets of the LEGO Inside Tour released every year. This year it’s the Ferguson tractor (4000025). It is based upon one of LEGO’s earliest plastic models which was released in 1951. I think that it is a good brick-built version of the Ferguson Tractor. It is designed by Steen Sig Andersen and each set is signed by him. It even earned a spot in the Tree in the LEGO House.
