LEGO CUUSOO Back to the Future DeLorean Time Machine (21103) Misspelling

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 [email protected]icon 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


LEGO San Diego Comic Con 2013 Day 1 Recap


Day 1 at the 2013 San Diego Comic Con is finally over and I haven’t been this tired in a very long time. Let me do a recap on all things LEGO related today at the Con. The biggest news there was probably the failure of the exclusive Spider-Woman minifigure giveaway. As you may have seen in my earlier post, the LEGO floor staff had to shut down the whole thing 15-20 minutes into the giveaway due to overcrowding. If you’ve been to SDCC before, once there’s any sort of overcrowding, they would be forced to shut down things like this. As a result, there are still some left over raffle tickets left over for Spider-Woman and will be given out tomorrow morning at 11:30 but this time it’s at the West Terrace. At that time, LEGO will also be giving out tickets for the Amazing Spider-Man minifigure as well. At 3:30pm, check if you have a winning ticket on and if you do, head back to the LEGO booth to pick up your precious.

Another thing that I noticed that was a little out of control was the line for the LEGO The Hobbit Micro Scale Bag End and the LEGO Star Wars JEK-14 Mini Stealth Starfighter exclusive sets. People were lining up for the minifigure giveaway when the line was for tickets to get the two sets. This confusion led to a line that snaked a couple of times around the whole booth. There were only a limited amount of each set … Continue

LEGO CUUSOO Interview With Team BTTF

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.
