Hi Bryan Here…
Just like the flux capacitor replica and the Ghostbusters ghost trap replica, Mattel is putting out a 1:1 scale replica of Marty’s hoverboard from ‘Back to the Future. Mattel announced a press release today teasing on what we can expect. Sadly since it’s not 2015, they will not actually hover yet, but 2015 is not far off.
Back to the Future Hover Board: Finally! This totally awesome 1:1 replica of the hover board from the BTTF 2 and BTTF 3 films includes multiple whooshing sounds and will glide over most surfaces (does not actually “hover” – check back in 2015 for that feature). We’ll be taking orders for it March 1 – March 20, 2012, and the final product will be shipped around November/December 2012. Because this is such a high-cost item, there will be a minimum number of orders required to go into production. If we don’t receive the minimum orders, won’t go into production and customers will not be charged. The price will be announced later this month. (Note: Hover board does not work on water.)
This might just by the right center piece and focus point in my living room. Well that’s just until they make the 1:1 scale replica of Ash’s chainsaw.
