Part of the LEGO Creator Expert line, the Back to the Future Time Machine honors all three films in the classic series with parts and accessories from each of the films. From a light-up flux capacitor and lightning rod from the first film, to Mr. Fusion and fold-down hover tires from Part II, all the way through Part III’s whitewall tires and hood-mounted circuit board. It’s really three LEGOs in one.
Doc Brown may not have been too interested in the aesthetic particulars of his time machine — for those who forgot, Brown was more interested in the temporal displacement qualities of the stainless steel body — but the folks at LEGO sure sweated the details with this set. Open the gull-wing doors to reveal the numbered date selector on the dash; string black conduit along its sides; watch the 1.21-gigawatt flux capacitor brick light up; and, best of all, the kit includes Dr. Emmett “Doc” Brown and Marty McFly mini-figures, so you can play with your, er, toy when no one’s watching. Whether it gets up to 88 miles per hour or not is up to your filthy little imagination.
