$150. That's a little steep. My Ecto-1 only cost $70 and it wasn't much less complicated than that.

This one? https://brickset.com/sets/21108-1/Ghostbusters-Ecto-1

The Bond one has more than twice the bricks.
Would not have guessed that. Looking at the description, it looks like there's an engine under the hood and other little things that my Ecto-1 set didn't have, so I guess the cost is justifiable (But outside what I'd personally pay for a Lego Set.)

QoS is great when  viewed immediately after Casino Royale

I think they're both basically forgettable.  I used to hate them, now they're just "meh."  Haven't seen Skyfall or the other one yet.

There’s over a million pieces of Lego Technic in this life-sized Bugatti Chiron, as well as 2,304 tiny Lego electric motors allowing it to be actually driven to speeds of over 18 miles per hour.

Well that's literally just a vinyl skin over lego parts, like the ship sails. Great idea.

Lego is so much better than when I was a kid. Even in the last ten years it has gotten so much better.
