Cool Stuff: Lego 'Back To The Future' Time Traveling Train And 400,000 Brick 'Harry Potter' Hogwarts

The team that brought you the first official Back to the Future Lego is back at it again, and this time they run on steam. Team BTTF has created a functional, unmistakably detailed Lego recreation of Doc Brown's Jules Verne Train that appears at the end of Back to the Future Part III. The Lego Cuusso project only has a few hundred supporters at the time, and needs 10,000 to get put in front of the Lego board but, that's bound to happen with this cool creation.

Not to be outdone, Harry Potter fan Alice Finch created a jaw-dropping, 400,000 brick, room by room recreation of Hogwarts Castle from the Harry Potter films. Check out photos of both below.

The Back to the Future III set can be found, in detail, on its Lego Cuusoo page, which is also where you'd go to endorse it and, maybe, help get it made. Thanks to Gizmodo for the heads up.

The Hogwarts set was originally found on Finch's Flickr, but was featured on The Brothers Brick as well. Thanks to IO9 for the heads up.

Here are just a few images of both.

For more images of each set, click on the links above the gallery. There are dozens and dozens (especially of Hogwarts) along with info on their creation. Which would you rather own or try to build?
