Great Scott! LEGO has unveiled a Back to the Future set and we can’t wait to get the engines started for December 4, 1985.
Wait a minute Doc, are you telling me LEGO built a time machine? Good kind of.
The Danish toy company has recreated one of the most iconic cars of all time: the beloved time-traveling Delorean.

“Universal, Amblin Entertainment and the filmmakers of Back to the Future are thrilled to have partnered with the LEGO team in creating this fantastic piece of kit,” said Bob Gale, co-writer and co-producer of the trilogy.
Mr Gale added: “In the film, Doc Brown spent nearly 30 years and his entire family fortune building his Time Machine. Luckily, you’ll be able to build this LEGO model in much less time and at much less expense – although your finished version can’t time travel!”
It’s been faithfully redesigned with details from the movie trilogy, including wheels that fold out for flight mode and time travel once you hit 88 miles per hour!
The Delorean set includes a light flux capacitor, dates printed on the dashboard, opening doors and butterfly hood and many more Easter eggs.
You’ll even find a banana and a tin can to power the Mr. Fusion device as seen on the vehicle, like at the end of the first movie.
Sven Franic, LEGO Set Designer commented: “Since its release in 1985, Back to the Future has continued to be a cult film and a favorite for generations of fans everywhere – myself included. so much fun reliving my favorite moments from all three films in 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 enjoy running through time in LEGO style.”
The Back to the Future set costs £149.99 and will be available to buy from April 1 via the LEGO website.
