Team BTTF has been pushing for months to get a Lego rendition of Back to the Future's AMC DeLorean as an official kit. Persistence pays off: Lego's Summer Review has approved the two-person group's project as its next Cuusoo set, both for its realistically affordable design and in response to the "massive appeal" fostered when geek culture took notice. While we don't know how closely the design will follow the templates created by M. Togami and Sakuretsu, it's safe to say there will be a brick-based (and sadly non-functional) Mr. Fusion in the mix. We'll have to wait until mid-2013 to buy a set for ourselves; that's arguably early when Back to the Future II won't take place for another two years.
Great Scott, film fans! You won't need a flux capacitor to fulfill your density because the first ever Hoverboard prop replica from the classic Back to the Future™ trilogy is coming to MattyCollector.com in 2012!
Unbelievably it has been a little of 25 years since Back to the Future first graced movie screens. Celebrate a quarter century with this Minimates four pack. You get Marty McFly, Doc Brown, Biff Tannen, and the first ever Principal Strickland Minimate. Look for it in a specialty store near you.
