The gold standard in high-end collectible toys is a company called Hot Toys. They have the most desirable licenses, and create work that is absolutely second to none. Some of their recent brilliant work is based on Back to the Future, The Dark Knight and The Avengers.
Back in July, Hot Toys finally announced they had acquired the mother of all licenses: Star Wars. This was a crushing blow to collectors like myself because it meant we’d soon be dead broke as Hot Toys takes all our money with their amazing work. Now the first two pieces have been released and, as expected, they are incredible. You can see a tease above; below, check out the first Hot Toys Star Wars for Han Solo and Chewbacca. Read More »

In July, Hot Toys announced they would be producing a Back to the Future 1/6th scale Marty McFly Figure as part of their Movie Masterpiece line. The first photos of the Michael J Fox-replica Marty McFly figure was very impressive, but what was in the background of the photos got even more buzz: a 1/6th Scale DeLorean Time Machine replica. From what I hear, Hot Toys only created the vehicle as set dressing for the Marty figure, but the response at Comic Con 2014 (where the figure was on display with the car) convinced them to make it a reality.
And today they have released new photos of the prototype, along with information about the features of the collectible, price and more. Since I was a child, I always wanted top own a DeLorean time machine — this might be my only (reasonably affordable) chance. Hit the jump to learn more about the Hot Toys DeLorean Time Machine.
