British toymaker Hornby has been awarded the official international license to sell Corgi and Scalextri-branded 007 products for the upcoming film. Aston Martin fans, owners and enthusiasts alike can look forward to the release of the upcoming display at the London Toy Festival sometime in January of the coming year. Hornby Chief Executive Richard Ames said that the deal will continue a long partnership between the toy firm, which traces its history back over 100 years, and the Martini-sipping spy.

A series, which is synonymous for the appearance of the Aston Martin for fifty years now, with a recent report that the Aston Martin may not appear in the next upcoming chapter, fans were a stir with disappointment. However the luxury carmaker Aston Martin dispelled that rumor recently and shared they would continue supplying Bond with his favorite car with the building of a new sports car, the DB10, with only 10 specially-designed models to be made for the film.

The Bond series providing a number of businesses exposure and promotion through the years, is most well- known for its partnership with Aston Martin. With the unveiling of the DB10 at Pinewood Studios near London, marking the 50th anniversary of Bond’s first cruise in the Aston Martin in 1964 film the Goldfinger, we expect the scaled down size models of 007’s Aston Martin to fancy many.

Most likely to become a collectible, it is unclear yet how long the toy models of the Aston Martin will be available and how many might be produced. Obviously the less in production the more likely to become an item of desire by collectors. With that said what might you pay for a mini me version of the infamous 007 Aston Martin?
