James Bond may have had some commitment issues, but he sure did love his 1964 Aston Martin DB5. The iconic car was the best sidekick a spy could ask for, and it is now joining the ranks of such vehicles as the Millennium Falcon and Marvel S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier and getting the Lego treatment, reports Esquire. 

The Lego James Bond Aston Martin, which was revealed today, is based off the car Sean Connery drove for Goldfinger. It is an expert-level set with 1,295 pieces, and it includes all the necessary spy gadgets: rotating license plates, a bullet shield, a hidden phone, pop-out machine guns, and tire slashers mounted in the wheels. Best of all, it has an ejector seat.

Lego is selling the set for $150, starting August 1.
