It’s officially here! The LEGO Back to the Future Time Machine set, which has been said to become a reality for quite some time now. It was first submitted by two fan builders and selected last December to be the next LEGO CUUSOO set that’s based on the highly popular 1980s film trilogy starring Michael J. Fox. It’ll be available this week in limited quantities at the LEGO booth at the San Diego Comic Con and participating European stores and will go on sale globally starting August 1 online and at physical LEGO stores for $34.99. Fan collaborators of this LEGO CUUSOO project, Masashi Togami and Minifig Builder Sakuretsu, will donate royalties to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.
The model features iconic details known to the movie, such as the Flux Capacitor, a time display tile, the Mr. Fusion Home Energy Reactor, and LEGO Minifigure versions of Marty McFly and Dr. Emmet “Doc” Brown. Users can actually build all three versions of the time machine as featured in the movie’s trilogy, down to the printed OUTATIME and barcode license plates. This unique set also includes an interesting instruction booklet containing production notes, original images and fun details from the movies, making it great for collectors and fans alike.
