Playmobil launches toy version for children aged 5 to 99

-

In a toy designed for those ages 5 to 99, Playmobil has released its version of the Aston Martin DB5 driven by Bond, James Bond, in the 1964 movie Goldfinger.

The Playmobil version features an array of “fighting gadgets” patterned on those Q provided to 007 in his battle with Auric Goldfinger, Oddjob and other villains.

The Playmobil DB5 measures nearly 10.5 inches in length, more than 3 inches in height and nearly 4 inches in width. It has removable roof panels, triple rotating license plates “and various lovingly designed details,” according to the Aston Martin news release.

Goldfinger was the third movie in the Bond series. Aston Martin notes the pairing of Bond and the DB5 “marks the start of a special relationship between 007 and the DB5 which has since spanned seven James Bond films and over 50 years of cinema history.”

It adds, “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 by the headlights, helping to see Bond’s mission through to a perfect success.”

The set not only includes the car, but four character figures representing Bond, Goldfinger, Oddjob and another of Goldfinger’s henchmen.

The 70578 James Bond Aston Martin DB5 — Goldfinger Edition by Playmobil has an MSRP of $89.99.
