Take a time-travelling adventure with the new LEGO Back to the Future Time Machine

LEGO and Universal Brand Development have revealed a brand new three-in-one reproduction of one of the most iconic movie vehicles of all time – the Back to the Future Time Machine.

It is inspired by the iconic DeLorean car seen in the film franchise and allows builders to recreate the car from either the first, second, or third movie. This build is even more incredible because it comes complete with a light-up flux capacitor, a box of plutonium, Marty’s hoverboard, and LEGO mini-figure versions of characters Doc Brown and Marty McFly.

Faithfully recreated details from the film trilogy include wheels that fold down for flight mode, the iconic light-up flux capacitor, printed dashboard dates, opening gull-wing doors and hood, and many more surprises, including Marty’s hoverboard and swappable license plates. The set even comes with a banana and tin can power, the Mr. Fusion device as seen on the vehicle at the end of the first movie.

Gumtree's online marketplace is also filled with all sorts of LEGO products that can be purchased as gift for someone or to recreate the inner child in you.

Here are some fun facts to know about the original movie:

  • The script was rejected many, many times
  • It was almost not called Back To The Future
  • Christopher Lloyd turned the part of Doc Brown down
  • There were many changes made to the script

Sven Franic, LEGO Set Designer, says: "Since its release in the 1985, Back to the Future continues to be a cult film and a favourite for generations of fans all over the world – including me. I had so much fun reliving my favourite moments from all three films on this exciting and nostalgic design adventure. The shared timelessness of LEGO bricks and the Back to the Future franchise is something we really wanted to capture for this set, so we hope fans will enjoy racing through time in LEGO style."
