Lego: This Back to the Future box will go on sale April 1

Lego is taking Back to the Future fans on a magical journey through time with an all-new saga-themed set available April 1st.

Inspired by the iconic 1981 DeLorean DMC-12, the LEGO® Time Machine – Back to the Future set allows builders to “create a car from the first, second or third movie with the same set,” announces the acclaimed small brick toy maker . And this latest addition to the Lego Creator Expert line, which includes models like the 9090-piece Titanic or the Adidas Originals Superstar sneakers, really has something to look forward to.

The 1,872-piece box of this set (much more than the brand’s previous model of around 400 pieces) also comes with a few accessories, a light condenser, a box of plutonium, Marty’s hoverboard, and Lego Doc minifigures. Brown and Marty McFly.


Accurately recreated details from three iconic films, from folding tires for flight mode to dates printed on the dashboard, to winged doors, opening hood and license plates. Banana and tin can to power Mr. Fusion, as seen on the vehicle at the end of the first film, round out the set.


Thus, the DeLorean can be built in three different configurations: the “original” version of the time machine from the first Back to the Future movie (with a lightning rod to recreate the movie’s ending);


floating version with Mr. Fusion from the 2015 futuristic timeline in the second film;


and a steampunk version of the third film from 1885.


“Universal, Amblin Entertainment and the directors of Back to the Future are thrilled to partner with the LEGO team on this fantastic set,” said Bob Gale, co-writer and co-producer of the trilogy. “In the film, Doc Brown spent almost 30 years and invested his entire family fortune in the creation of his time machine. Luckily, you can build this Lego model in much less time and at a much lower cost, except for one thing: your version won’t be able to travel through time!

Everything is like real

To play the nostalgia card to the fullest, the LEGO Group returned to where it all began – the iconic Backlot at Universal Studios Hollywood, where Back to the Future was filmed – to film three Lego models alongside the original DeLorean time machine. three opuses.


This new Lego Back to the Future Time Machine set will be available for a suggested retail price of €169.99 at Lego stores and the Lego website starting April 1, 2022, a site where fans can already view the specially made short film. on the occasion when Doc and Marty go back in time to try to recover a lost Flux Capacitor.

Brick is always a hit with young and old alike.

Since the release of the first Lego movie and the X-Wing fighter from Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace in 1999, the company has found an opportunity to give pop culture lovers a chance to indulge.

In recent years, Lego has even greatly increased the number of sets designed for adults, such as the Fender Stratocaster, the 11,695-piece world map set, or the 8-speed Lamborghini Sián FKP 37. But the company keeps most of its sales on the side of children, especially those based on Star Wars and Harry Potter.

Therefore, the success of the manufacturer from Billund, Denmark, which is undoubtedly associated with the Lego Masters broadcasts, cannot be denied. It even recorded “extraordinary” sales during the pandemic, with profits jumping by a third in 2021. A success that this new DeLorean should carry forward into the distant future.
