For those who missed out on ordering the Back to the Future Hoverboard replica earlier this year, MattyCollector.com is providing you another chance to get your hands on the replica prop that’s the 1:1 scale model and fully sanctioned by the movies. Going for $130, the site is taking orders for the item for a limited time since there’s only a limited amount available. The hoverboard is a replica of the one that Marty McFly used in the Back to the Future movie and was made by Mattel and developed with the movie’s special effects supervisor Michael Lantieri, prop maker Mary Anne Lantieri and the Bob Gale. The replica measures about 28″ x 8″ x 3 and doesn’t actually hover as it does in the movie, but it does have the exact “whooshing” sound sampled from Back to the Future and all Mattel logos just like in the films.
