LEGO CUUSOO: Back To The Future

It’s been a while since I’ve had time to post any pics. I changed shifts at work and don’t have as much free time as I want.

Growing up the Back the Future trilogy was one of my favorite series, right behind Star Wars and Indiana Jones. I was really excited when the Back to the Future DeLorean was announced as a LEGO CUUSOO Set. It was the first project that I supported to actually be made into a set.

The Marty McFly and Doc Brown minifigs are well done. The have dual sided heads and back printing on the torso. The instruction booklet is a nice collection piece. There are a few pieces of Lego and BTTF trivia included. One being that the date on the time display is the date that the LEGO patent was granted. I would have preferred the actual dates that appeared onscreen in the first film. There were on only two dates on the time display but I guess that all that would fit and be legible.
