LEGO goes Back to the Future with its latest collaboration

Inspiring fans to fire up their brick building engines, the LEGO Group and Universal Brand Development have revealed a new three-in-one reproduction of one of the most iconic movie vehicles of all time – the LEGO Back to the Future Time Machine.

Inspired by the DeLorean car seen in the time traveling adventure film franchise from Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment, the LEGO Back to the Future Time Machine set allows builders to create the car from either the first, second or third movie.

It also comes with a light-up flux capacitor, a box of plutonium, Marty’s hoverboard and LEGO minifigure versions of Doc Brown and Marty McFly.

To celebrate the launch, LEGO has created a new ‘Brick to the Future’ animated short, which sees Doc and Marty travel through time to try and repair the time machine.

In addition, the LEGO Group went back to where it all started – the famous Backlot at Universal Studios in Hollywood, where Back to the Future was filmed, to capture the three LEGO models alongside the original DeLorean Time Machine as seen in the films.

“This has been an incredibly exciting project to collaborate with the LEGO Group on; from Easter eggs that nod to each of the three Back to the Future films, to iconic elements from the DeLorean Time Machine like Mr. Fusion, to making Doc Brown and Marty McFly into mini figures – the fans are going to love going back in time with this LEGO set,” said Joe Lawandus, svp and general manager, global toys and hardlines for Universal Brand Development.

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 Easter eggs including Marty’s hoverboard and swappable licence plates. The set even comes with a banana and tin can, to power the Mr. Fusion device as seen on the vehicle at the end of the first movie.

Sven Franic, LEGO set designer, added: “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.”
