First Look at Official LEGO Back to the Future Set!

Well this is a nice surprise! Those plucky Danish maniacs at LEGO have unveiled the first official image of the very soon to be released Back to the Future time travelling Delorean. "WHHAAAA?" you say, rubbing your bleary eyes in disbelief! It's true! This one of exclusive is the result of a successful campaign on the Lego Cuusoo site where imaginative upstarts like you and I are able to submit their outlandish ideas for sets and, if they garner at least 10,000 votes, LEGO will step in and review the concept, pushing those lucky through into production. And thanks to an outpouring of fan support, the BTTF set is now a reality. Check it out...

Complete with Marty and Doc, the Delorean will apparently have enough pieces to convert it into all three versions from the trilogy of films. Hopefully there'll be some minifig customisation options too (future Doc?) but that might be asking for a little too much. Love that Flux Capacitor tile!

And crazier still, it will be going on sale this Thursday 18th July, presumably online through the link on the Cuusoo site. This is a one time only deal so make sure you grab it. I've started constantly refreshing already. "What' happens to us in the future? Do we become assholes or something?" Probably! But at least you can own a Lego Delorean!
