Back to the Future Part III – Delorean Time Machine – Picture Special

Lego Back to the Future Part III Delorean Time Machine

Time is standing still here at TLCB Towers. It’s been hours and we’ve accomplished nothing. Because of this. The single most amazing model that we’ve posted this year. Built by Flickr’s 지현 주 (aka seter82), it is, of course, the incredible final DeLorean DMC-12 time machine from the iconic Back to the Future franchise, and it’s the hardest one to make of them all.

Often overlooked by model makers, the time machine from Back to the Future Part III is the most intricate and highly detailed of all of the movie cars, modified to operate before gasoline was discovered via a push from a steam engine. Steampunk, surely, began here.

Seter82’s astonishing recreation of the Back to the Futrure Part III DeLorean is one of the most beautifully replicated movie cars we’ve ever seen, in any context, and it even gives real-world recreations from the Back to the Future franchise fierce competition. With a perfectly recreated cabin, complete with all the paraphernalia Doc required for time travelling, a 100% movie-accurate exterior, plus functions such as opening gull-wing doors and hood, and adjustable steering wheel and seats, Seter’s DeLorean is a build that you can revel in for hours.

Which is what we’ll be doing. You can join us at Seter82’s Flickr photostream by clicking here, where a huge gallery of incredible imagery is available to view – however, unless you have a real time machine be prepared to lose a good part of your day. Because Seter’s DeLorean is as real as it gets.

Brick to the Future

Lego Back to the Future DeLorean DMC-12

Previous bloggee Brian Williams (aka BMW_Indy) has released an absolute masterclass in both small scale building and beautiful photography. His expertly recreated DeLorean DMC-12 time machine from the second ‘Back to the Future’ movie is one of the best mini-figure scale vehicles we’ve seen this year.

Brian has enhanced his model with a few trick products from custom Lego suppliers Lifelites and  Brickarms, and the results – as you can see above – are spectacular. There are more images to view at Brian’s Flickr photostream – click here to hit 88mph and here to read the unbelievable true story of the real DeLorean Motor Company.

Back to the Future… Again

Lego Back to the Future DeLoreanThe third and final post for today’s Movie Vehicle Special is another car we seem to feature every other month; the DeLorean DMC-12 time machine from the cult 1980s trilogy Back to the Future. Misterzumbi is the latest builder to take a crack at the infamous vehicle, and a sterling job he’s done too. You can see all the details of his mini-figure DeLorean on Flickr via the link above.

You can also see LEGO’s own version of the star movie car in our Brick To The Future 21103 Preview, and if you want to know the real story behind the DeLorean car, including the drugs, bankruptcy, and conned celebrities, make sure you read ‘Failure, Cocaine and Marty McFly’ via The Lego Car Blog Archive.

Lego 21103 Preview – Brick To The Future!

Lego 21103 DeLorean Back To The FutureGreat Scott! LEGO’s Cuusoo scheme – where fans can publish their creations on the LEGO Cuusoo site, and those reaching 10,000 votes or more are considered for limited production – has generated its fourth fan-designed official LEGO set!

m.togami and Sakuretsu’s mini-figure scale DeLorean time-machine from the superb Back To The Future movie franchise was recently approved by LEGO’s ‘Jury’ of designers for production, and The Lego Group this week released images showing how the set will look when it reaches stores later in the year. The new set – numbered 21103 – will contain 401 pieces, including both ‘Doc Emmett Brown’ and ‘Marty McFly’ mini-figures, a skateboard, and of course, a DeLorean with a few ‘modifications’.

It’s too early for us to say what the pricing for 21103 will be, however the really cool news is that the designers have decided that the revenue they receive as a commission reward for creating the Cuusoo-winning product (1% of the total generated) is to be donated to the Michael J. Fox Parkinson’s Foundation. If The Lego Car Blog gave out awards for the heroes the Lego Community of 2013, m.togami and Sakuretsu are surely top of the list.

So watch the video below, start saving, and join the discussion on Eurobricks. And congratulations to the winning duo, from all of us here at The Lego Car Blog, for making this exceptional project a reality.
