Lego’s Brand New Back to the Future Set Comes With Perfect DeLorean

Back to the Future Set

Lego has released a new Back to the Future DeLorean set, making the time-traveling car from the movie series with its most authentic brick model yet and this one actually looks like the iconic vehicle.

This is a $169 set that has 1,856 pieces and is much bigger and more detailed in every way. There are functional gull-wing doors, a far less blocky hood, a brand-new windshield that Lego created especially for the new set to match the real car, and a light-up flux capacitor.

Back to the Future Set

The new DeLorean set can be made in three different designs: the “original” version of the time machine from the first Back to the Future movie (complete with a lightning rod); a hovering version with a Mr. Fusion reactor from the futuristic 2015 timeline in the second movie; and the steampunk 1885 variant from the 3rd movie.

The set only includes enough pieces to build one DeLorean at a time, so if you’d like to put all 3 variations on display, you’ll need to buy 3 sets.

There are also some amazing accessories: a to-scale hoverboard and box of stolen plutonium, swappable license plates for the different eras of the car, and a banana to throw in the Mr. Fusion. And while the car is bigger than the Minifigure scale, the set does come with the Marty McFly and Doc Brown minifigures, too.

Back to the Future Set

The original Lego DeLorean set was released back in 2013 for a far more reasonable $34.99 price tag. The set holds a special place in Lego history, too: it was one of the initial fan-designed projects from the Lego Ideas that was produced by Lego.

You can buy the new Lego Back to the Future DeLorean set will be available from Lego’s website and other vendors starting on April 1st.
