Some of the bigger LEGO sites and some people in Europe already have gotten their hands on the latest LEGO CUUSOO set, the Back to the Future DeLorean Time Machine (21103). Many have done reviews on it and noticed that the flux capacitor piece has a pretty big spelling error. Someone in quality control forgot about the “I before E, except after C” rule in the bottom sentence “SHEILD EYES FROM LIGHT” instead of “SHIELD EYES FROM LIGHT”. It looks like the the first batches of the set have this error and LEGO has acknowledged it in their Knowledge Base. The DeLorean will be available at LEGO stores and Shop@Home and LEGO is now thinking of options to resolve this issue on the flux capacitor piece.
This probably means the set I picked up that was autographed at the 2013 San Diego Comic Con may also have the spelling error which makes it more of a collector’s item. I will be picking up another set when it becomes available globally to do review and I’ll check if that batch has the error or not.
Information about the Back to the Future set Flux Capacitor misspelling.
It has come to our attention that one of the pieces in the new Back to the Future Time Machine set was printed with a spelling error on it. Text on the Flux Capacitor element reads “SHEILD EYES FROM LIGHT” instead of “SHIELD EYES FROM LIGHT”. We’re sorry for any disappointment caused by the oversight.
The set will launch as planned on August 1st, and we’re currently investigating the best way to resolve the error. For updates, check this Knowledge Base article or contact LEGO Customer Service. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
