It’s a great time to be both a LEGO Builder and a fan of the long-running James Bond spy film franchise. The past few weeks have seen a near daily barrage of promotion for the upcoming collaboration between LEGO, the Bond franchise and Aston Martin. The latest development on this has the LEGO Creator Expert Aston Martin DB5 (10262) being put up for pre-order at the LEGO Store in Budapest (sounds like a top secret place that Agent 007 would visit in his classic films). But are there any further updates on when the set will be introduced to the world?
As it turns out, the LEGO Store in Leicester Square, London will be busy for the next couple of weeks – now that it has posted an invitation (via Facebook) to all LEGO VIP card holders to attend the unveiling of a ‘top secret’ LEGO Creator Expert set. Slated on July 18, from 10AM to 1PM (UTC), attendees will witness live the reveal of the much hyped LEGO Creator Expert Aston Martin DB5 (10262) in all its silver gray glory.
The said event will also allow LEGO VIPs an early access to purchase the set, to meet and greet the set designers and have their box sets signed by them. Pre-registration to attend the event is required and you can do so by heading to this link, which is also mentioned in the event details below as posted by LEGO.

Until further notice…
It would be appropriate for the LEGO Aston Martin (10262) set to formally debut in the UK. In the past, the LEGO Store in Leicester Square, London has been instrumental in the launch and early VIP access for some of LEGO’s most notable sets including the LEGO Ideas TRON: Legacy (21314), the LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) and last year’s LEGO Creative Expert set the London Bus (10258).
But for those who can’t be there for the occasion, LEGO extends the early VIP access online at shop.LEGO.com from July 18 until 31. Watch out for more updates on this in the next few days so stay tuned here on the Brick Show.
