Lego has announced that a Delorean Lego set, inspired by the Back To The Future movie series, will be available on 1 April of this year. The Back to the Future Time Machine set (10300) is a three-in-one set that lets you build a version of the Delorean from all three movies.
This isn’t Lego’s first Back To The Future Delorean set. In 2013, Lego released a more basic-looking Delorean set—to which fans have remarked that it was “lacking detail and functionality”. The 401-piece set has since been discontinued.
This time, Lego aimed to do things right. It is a 1,872-piece set, and when built, it is 11cm tall, 35cm long, and 19cm wide. It also comes with its own Doc Brown and Marty McFly Lego figures as well as many other pieces that might be familiar to you if you’re a fan of the movie series—like a Flux Capacitor that actually glows thanks to an LED-powered light brick, a Mr. Fusion generator that actually looks like the prop from the films, a case of plutonium and even a bright pink hoverboard.
However, the main showstopper for the set itself is that it lets you build all three versions of the time-traveling DeLorean. There’s a version from the original film with the lightning rod sticking out of the top, the flying version featured in Back To The Future II with folding wheels and a Mr. Fusion generator in the back, and the version from Back To The Future III where Doc Brown had to repair the vehicle using the primitive electronics available at the time.
