Back To The Future (BTTF) Cuusoo Set Revealed
Tonight I finally got my very first glimpse of the DeLorean Time Machine from the upcoming and VERY much anticipated Back To The Future set. Thanks to my good friend, super spy and Birthday Girl, KT for grabbing the upcoming Store Newsletter that reveals the very first picture of the model and the all important release date………18th July!!
The shot is of the DeLorean as seen in Back To The Future Part II (and the beginning of Part III), with the hover conversion that allowed it to fly. No word yet on price, minifigures or whether the DeLorean will be customisable to make all the other versions that we see in the film trilogy.
The Back To The Future (BTTF) – DeLorean Time Machine was the fourth project approved by LEGO Cuusoo for production after reaching the crucial 10,000 vote support criteria in 2012 and then passing through LEGO Cuusoo’s rigorous review process, before being publicly announced as an upcoming set on 22nd February 2013. Since that day we have been waiting for any details about when and how much this set will cost. Now we know the When. I am still very curious about the price though.
One thing that really stands out to me is the differences between the proposed and submitted model by Team BTTF and the final LEGO product as shown in the Newsletter. Right now, the roof/windshield and the bonnet of the upcoming set actually look worse to me, when compared to the original. I have included pictures of both below. What do you think? Is this better or worse than you were expecting? Will you be buying it regardless? Let us know below.
EDIT: Thanks to Rich L for correctly pointing out that I forgot about the flying DeLorean at the end of Part I. So facepalm for me.
