If you were diehard Marty McFly and Doc Brown fans back in the 1980’s, good news has just arrived. You can stop living in the past and bring one of the most iconic film franchises to life with a brand new LEGO building set!

The LEGO Back to the Future Time Machine is the DeLorean at its best. The 3-in-1 building kit lets you create the time machine’s three unique versions from each of the three movies. The set comes with everything you need to travel to the past: a light-up flux capacitor, box of plutonium, Marty’s hoverboard and LEGO minifigure versions of Doc Brown and Marty McFly.

No details were spared in the recreation of the DeLorean. Look for things like wheels that fold down during flight mode, printed dashboard dates, opening gull-wing doors and hood, swappable license plates, banana, tin can and more Easter eggs the uber fan will notice.

The reason the set is so authentic? Universal, Amblin Entertainment and the Back to the Future filmmakers all collaborated on its creation!

Bob Gale, co-writer and co-producer of the trilogy shares, “In the movie, Doc Brown spent almost 30 years and his entire family fortune to build his Time Machine. Fortunately, you’ll be able to build this LEGO model in significantly less time and with far less expense – although your completed version will be unable to travel through time!”

To make the release even more special, LEGO captured some special shots with the OG DeLorean when it took a trip to the Backlot at Universal Studios in Hollywood where the franchise was filmed.

Not only that, you can now watch a special animated short, “Brick to the Future” where Marty and Doc have another time-traveling mission to repair the broken time machine! You can view it now on lego.com.

The LEGO Back to the Future Time Machine is meant for adults 18 years and older and comes with 1,872 pieces. While you can create all three versions of the DeLorean with the included pieces, you won’t be able to do all three at once. The set retails for $170 and is available starting Apr. 1 (NOT an April Fool’s joke) on lego.com and at your local Lego store.
