The LEGO Speed Champions garage continues to expand, and now boasts the addition of two new cars from the James Bond and Fast & Furious franchise – the Aston Martin DB5, and 1970s Dodge Charger.
- 76911 007 Aston Martin DB5 – US$19.99 / AU$32.99 / £19.99
- 76912 Fast & Furious 1970 Dodge Charger R/T – US$19.99 / AU$32.99 / £19.99
Most excitingly, in addition to being 007 and Fast & Furious licensed, the sets also come minifigures of James Bond (Daniel Craig), and also family man Dominic Toretto, played by Vin Diesel.
I’m really excited by the prospect of both manufacturer and movie-licensed Speed Champion sets, as it opens up the possibility of so many more exciting movie cars.
Would love to see Herbie, Mini Coopers from the Italian Job, Ford GT40 from Ford v Ferrari and so many more in this format.
76911 James Bond 007 Aston Martin DB5
76911 James Bond 007 Aston Martin DB5 looks absolutely superb, and I think a must-have if you’re a Speed Champions fan. In a surprising twist, I think these are printed elements on the front, which are mind-blowing, but it’s a little hard to tell.
This looks much better than the Creator Expert version, and James Bond fans will be pleased.
The Daniel Craig Bond minifigure is understandable, given the proximity to No Time To Die, but I hope we get a Sean Connery version somewhere down the line.
76912 Fast and Furious 1970 Dodge Charger R/T
Dom’s Charger is okay I guess – the front looks a bit too blocky and doesn’t have the subtle downwards slope on the 1970s Dodge Charger, but it looks slightly better from the back.
It’s an okay model, but for fans of Fast & Furious and Vin Diesel, this is really a must-have. Personally, I would’ve really liked Paul Walker’s Skyline GTR, which I think would’ve been a more interesting pick.
