Brick News has posted new images of the LEGO CUUSOO Back to the Future DeLorean Time Machine (21103). Last week, we got our first look at the DeLorean itself and there were mixed reactions of the design of the car. As you can see from the image above, you can see the box art of the set as well as the Marty McFly and Doc Brown minifigures. Marty also gets a purple skateboard. The image also shows the dashboard of the DeLorean with the time circuits set at January 28, 1958 for the destination time and October 26, 1985 for the present time. I’ve did some research and there are a couple of issues with the time circuits because there are supposed to be three dates shown with the last one being the last time departed. Another issue is that there was no destination date set as January 28, 1985 in the movies.
I’m not sure where LEGO got that date from but it’s not one that was used. A helpful follower gave me an update on a reason why LEGO may have used that particular date. January 28, 1985 is the date that LEGO patented the design of LEGO bricks. It’s interesting that LEGO included that fact into the set even though it may confuse some people if they’re not up on their history.
Target: 10+ boys; and fans of the “Back to the Future” movie of all ages.
Storyline: Based on “back to the Future” movie (Universal Studios): With the DeLorean time machine, a young guy Marty McFly can travel back in time for different adventures.
Description: LEGO model of the DeLorean time machine. Designed by users of LEGO CUUSOO, the set includes the car and 2 main characters: Marty McFly and Doc Brown. Besides the building steps, the booklet in the set includes pages with info on the BTTF movie production, selected original stills from the movie, and fun details for the movie-fans. This set was developed based on the idea from the LEGO CUUSOO platform – through support of the LEGO and BTTF fans communities. This is a one off exclusive!!!
Buyer Benefits: The DeLorean car is the main feature in the movie. Instructions give the opportunity to add details to the car to modify it into 3 different versions, that represent the 3 different movies.
The Delorean is confirmed to be released on July 18th and will be priced at £34.99. The number of pieces of the set is still a mystery since the image is a little blurry. The box art is awesome and one of the best features of the whole set. We also get the Marty and Doc minifigures which is nice because from what we saw last week, we weren’t sure if any minifigures were included. The ability to modify the DeLorean into 3 different versions is also a nice added touch so you can change the car to fit with your MOC scenes.
