As part of the 50th anniversary celebrations for the iconic movie 'Goldfinger' later this year, Hot Wheels in the USA will release a commemorative collectors edition Aston Martin DB5 model.

The 'super deluxe' model is part of a new range from Mattel, owners of the Hot Wheels brand, and will be launched alongside collectibles from the Simpsons and Star Wars franchises.

The chrome Aston Martin DB5 model, which does not include the famous ejector seat that made the original Corgi toy to popular, will be included in an attractive display case and is expected to retail for around $40.

Mattel will preview the full range at Comic-Con in San Diego next month.

Although left largely dormant since Hornby took over ownership, it is unclear if Corgi still retain any die-cast model rights to the James Bond franchise.
