“What would James Bond do?”. Ask yourself that as you tackle our 007 Building Challenge where we invite you to Build Something Spectacular from the world of 007! What we’re looking for is a creative build that really embodies the spirit of the James Bond universe. It could be your favourite iconic movie scene, landmark or vehicle, an emblem or motif, or a gadget-filled tribute to Q – the ultimate creative genius. Whatever it is, it should be unmistakeably Bond… in LEGO bricks!
So, come on, what are you waiting for?
The Grand Prize winner will receive no less than the 10262 James Bond™ Aston Martin DB5 accompanied by a poster with an outline of the car signed by the LEGO Designer. On top of that, the Grand Prize winner will get the full vehicle package from LEGO Creator Expert consisting of 10220 Camper Van, 10242 MINI Cooper, 10252 VW Beetle and 10258 London Bus, and just because we are feeling the Christmas spirit, we want to top it off with the 10263 Winter Village Fire Station.
