LEGO Unveils Official Back To The Future DeLorean Set

After receiving the requisite number of votes on the CUUSO website, being green-lit by the company, and acquiring the licensing rights, LEGO has unveiled their official Back to the Future time traveling DeLorean playset. And this is it. The limited edition drops August 1st for around $55 and comes with enough pieces to mod the car into the DeLorean from any of the three movies. We're all gonna make the flying one from Back to the Future II though, right? I imagine a few purists will build the original, but the only person to build the one from the third movie will be the same guy who bought three sets so he could have them all on display simultaneously. 'That rich bastard' we'll all call him.

Thanks to Ed T, who doesn't need roads where he's going (presumably because he drives on the sidewalk).

There are Comments.

    Just bought it. Love the minifigures!

    If you want a Ghostbusters set to happen as well you can support it at the official LEGO Cuusoo site. Also search for any other ideas you like to support and make it happen.

  • Tyler AitchKay

    People give three too much shit, at least it tried something different and didn't retread in familiar territory, copying the first movie beat for beat.

    I am the only one the thinks the quality id awful. Look at this one for an example of a well done version (granted it is only from the 2nd film)

    If I've learned anything it's that I have a new video game in the distant future to get excited about.

    Legos?Where we're going we don't need...oh wait yeah were gonna need some of those

  • DeathBotGamma

    Hi. I'm the bastard that's going to buy three sets just because I can.

  • Barry

    I'm the guy with enough Legos to buy one and then use the instructions to build all three.

  • Eric Hettervik

    That looks pretty crappy compared to the original that was submitted.

  • Elak Swindell

    Totally agree. With all the time and money Lego put into this project, you'd think they would go with the hyper-detailed version made by the fans instead of this cruddy looking low-tech edition. For $55, I'd rather get the beautiful detailed version.

    Good, I thought I was the only one who thought that the quality is awful.

    That is the style they should have went with. For $55, I would rather have that than this crappy looking release.
