LEGO Unveils ‘Back to the Future’ Time Machine Set
Marking the fourth release from the LEGO CUUSOO fan submission-based designs, LEGO has unveiled a Back to the Future box set. Originally submitted by two fan builders and selected late last year to be the next LEGO CUUSOO release, the set features everything from faithful LEGO Minifigure reproductions of Marty McFly and Dr. Emmet “Doc” Brown to the Flux Capacitor and Mr. Fusion Home Energy Reactor. The time machine itself, of course, is a LEGO take on the trilogy’s DeLorean DMC-12 and be customized to reflect the look of the machine in any of the three films; the set even includes details like the “OUTATIME” and barcode license plates, as well as the dashboard’s time display. Available now in extremely limited quantities at San Diego’s Comic-Con, the Back to the Future set will launch August 1 for $34.99 USD via the LEGO Shop. The sale of the set will also go toward a good cause – collaborators Masashi Togami and Minifig-builder Sakuretsu have elected to donate their share of the royalties to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.
