We just talked about LEGO CUUSOO a few days ago with news and updates on recently approved LEGO-fan created projects that LEGO is considering for production (see: LEGO CUUSOO Update & Project Reviews), and today there is more good news; the LEGO Back to the Future DeLorean Time Machine by LEGO-fan m.togami is coming soon! 🙂
The LEGO Back to the Future DeLorean Time Machine reached the required 10,000 public votes and was approved for production by LEGO last December. After hearing nothing for 6 months and starting to wonder when this set will be released, we finally got an official release date and also some pictures to see what the set will look like, so let’s take a look! (You can click image for larger view.)
The above image of the LEGO Back to the Future DeLorean is from BrickNews.com, a LEGO fansite from the UK. It shows the LEGO Back to the Future DeLorean Time Machine, the box-art, as well as the minifigures; Marty McFly and Doc Brown. It also mentions that the booklet that comes with the set will include not only building-instructions but also info on the Back to the Future movie production, selected original stills from the movie, and fun details for BTTF fans. The instructions also give the opportunity to add details to the car to modify it into three different versions that represent the three different movies.
The LEGO Back to the Future DeLorean Time Machine set is scheduled for release on the 18th of July and priced at £34.99. If and when this set will be available in the USA and other countries is not yet known.
LEGO fans have been eagerly waiting for the release of this set as many of them grew up with the movies. However since the first images appeared of the official set, re-designed by LEGO from the original CUUSOO submission, there has been a lot of disappointment as well. The minifigs look fine, but the DeLorean seems to be looking worse – especially the hood. Hopefully the other features are better designed and compensate for the ugly front. It appears that the DeLorean may light up on the inside judging from the faint red light, and the controls do look good. 🙄
What do you think? How do you like the LEGO Back to the Future DeLorean Time Machine? Are you a fan of the movies? Is this a set you are interested to get?
