LEGO BTTF Jules Verne Train Instructions by Team BTTF

Earlier this year, the BTTF – Jules Verne Train by Team BTTF achieved 10,000 supporters on then LEGO Ideas. Unfortunately, it wasn’t chosen as one of the projects that would be official sets in the First 2014 LEGO Review. For those who really wanted this to be a real set, there’s some good news.

Today, Team BTTF announced that they have provided the instructions for free in LXF format. You can easily import the instructions to LEGO Digital Designer (LDD) to build your own version of Jules Verne Train.

There are two different versions of the train: the regular locomotive version and the one with the motor included. Check out the video below to see the Jules Verne Train in action.


LEGO CUUSOO Back to the Future Projects Featuring Orion Pax

In light of Team BTTF’s Jules Verne Train getting 10,000 supporters on their project, there is another creator on LEGO CUUSOO who also has some Back to the Future projects hoping to achieve what Team BTTF has done three times already and that person is Orion Pax, aka Alex Jones. If you’re fans of LEGO MOCs, you may have heard of Orion’s name since we’ve featured him on the site a few times before. On CUUSOO, he has listed a number of projects themed with “2015” which is the 30th anniversary of the first Back to the Future movie.

One of those projects is the Nike MAG that Marty wore in the second film. These particular shoes are confirmed to be re-released by Nike next year with power laces. Orion’s other BTTF projects include various buildings from Back to the Future II such as the Cafe 80s, the cinema showing Jaws 19, the Texaco station, and the iconic Hill Valley Courthouse.

Go check out these projects and support them if you like what you see. Also remember that Team BTTF also has some other neat projects that you can support as well. Overall, it’s cool to see that many fans are embracing the fact that a renowned movie like Back to the Future will be reaching its 30th anniversary and are creating things that bring back memories of when we first saw the movie and hopes that fans like us can actually have one of these sets in our hands.


LEGO CUUSOO BTTF – Jules Verne Train Achieves 10,000 Supporters

The BTTF – Jules Verne Train by Team BTTF becomes the latest project to achieve 10,000 supporters on LEGO CUUSOO. It now joins the LEGO Bird Project and the Modular Apple Store in the review stage on May 5th. Coincidentally, Jules Verne is also the first train-type project to get 10,000 supporters. The Train was seen at the very end of Back to the Future III when Doc Brown along with his family, Clara, Jules, and Verne, comes back from the Old West to visit Marty and Jennifer.

The Jules Verne Train is now the third project by Team BTTF to achieve this feat along with their DeLorean-Time-Machine (21103) as well as the UCS DeLorean Time Machine. By getting the required amount of supporters on this project shows that LEGO fans, especially AFOLs, appreciate projects that are based on things we are familiar with and all grew up with such as the Back to the Future movies.

Congratulations yet again to Team BTTF for reaching their goal! The Invisible Hand now becomes the highest supported project on CUUSOO.

Congratulations on 10,000 supporters, m.togami!


Congratulations on reaching 10,000 supporters for yet another fantastic Back to the Future model. This train engine is beautifully built and has so much character. It really captures what must be the second most iconic vehicle from the Back to the Future trilogy.

We now officially advance this project to the Review phase.

What happens now?
This project moves from the Idea stage to the Review stage. A “LEGO Review Board”


LEGO CUUSOO BTTF – UCS DeLorean Time Machine Achieves 10,000 Supporters

The BTTF – UCS DeLorean Time Machine is the the latest project to hit 10,000 supporters on LEGO CUUSOO. The project was getting very close to the Winter Review deadline but it garnered enough supporters with only 8 minutes to spare. This is Team BTTF’s second project to get the required supporters for it to have a chance to become an official LEGO set with the first one being the first being the regular The DeLorean Time Machine (21103). This version of the DeLorean was build by Legohaulic and is fit with the RC Function system (see below). Although it won’t get 88 mph, it’ll still be pretty fun to have if it becomes an official set.

The UCS DeLorean now joins the Macross VF-1 Valkyrie, Sherlock, Legend of Zelda Iron Knuckle Encounter, Japanese Old Style Architecture, and The Adventure Time Project in the Winter Review Stage. Congratulations again to Team BTTF for this achievement!

Congratulations on 10,000 supporters!


Congratulations, m.togami and Legohaulic, for reaching 10,000 supporters just in the nick of time for the Winter 2014 LEGO Review deadline!

We now officially advance this project to the Review phase.

What happens now?
This project moves from the Idea stage to the Review stage. A “LEGO Review Board” composed of designers, product managers, and other key team members will examine the idea. We’ll build concept models and determine if the concept meets our high standards for what it takes to be a LEGO product. This includes factors such as playability,


LEGO CUUSOO Back to the Future – Marty​’s Truck

Team BTTF is back with another project for LEGO CUUSOO and this time it is the Back to the Future – Marty’s Truck. The project features the black 1985 Toyota Hilux that was first seen at Statler Toyota and later in Marty’s garage after the events of the first movie. The truck is 6 studs wide and is able to fit two minifigures: Marty McFly and Jennifer Parker. Marty has a Shah Safari white checkered shirt over a red t-shirt with suspenders and blue jeans. Jennifer wears a blue vest over a white shirt and has the pink flower pants. The build and minifigures were created by Sakuretu as usual. If you like what you see, head over to the project page on CUUSOO and give your support.


LEGO Doc Brown’s GMC Value Van By Team BTTF

Last month, Masashi Togami revealed that he and Team BTTF will be releasing more Back to the Future related sets to be added to LEGO CUUSOO in the next few months. Today, Sakuretsu has posted a few preliminary images of Doc Brown’s GMC Value Van. It is the white van that is used to transport the DeLorean Time Machine at the Twin Pines Mall. On the side of the van, it has the wording “DR. E. BROWN ENTERPRISES — 24 HR. SCIENTIFIC SERVICES. The images also show a smaller DeLorean that is able to fit inside the van. Some other things that are shown in the images are Marty and Doc in their radiation suits with Einstein. Marty is holding the video camera that was used to record Doc’s experiment of the temporal displacement. Doc is seen holding plutonium that he took from the Libyan nationalists. Just from seeing the images, I feel that this will be a popular project on CUUSOO when it is submitted later this month.


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
