LEGO CUUSOO has recently interviewed Team BTTF to learn more about the creators of the LEGO DeLorean Time Machine, Masashi Togami and Sakuretsu. As you may have already know, the DeLorean was the set chosen by CUUSOO in the Summer Review to be the next set that will be produced by LEGO. Also, the 1% royalties that Masashi gets from the sale of the sets will all be donated to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, which is pretty awesome in it’s own right.
The purpose of Team BTTF was to reintroduce the movies to a newer generation of fans using LEGO. Each member of the team had different roles with Masashi taking the lead with product concepts and the press relations. Sakuretsu handles the model building and the custom minifigures. Legohaulic was also involved in building the UCS Time Machine.
The interview was very insightful on how the concept of the DeLorean as a LEGO set came from a sketch to becoming a reality. Read the whole interview on the LEGO CUUSOO blog here.
