Playmobil Back to the Future Playsets

Last year, Playmobil released a Back to the Future playset featuring the Doc Brown, Marty McFly and the DeLorean time machine. Considering the kid friendly style of these toys, it was an impressive little vehicle with a surprising number of accessories inspired by the time travel franchise. Now the German toy maker is time traveling again.

Playmobil is releasing two new Back to the Future playsets. There’s one inspired by the “future” of Back to the Future Part II with a playset inspired by the hoverboard chase in Hill Valley town square, and then we have a new vehicle playset inspired by the end of the original Back to the Future (which is also the beginning of the sequel), when a little change in history back in 1955 made Marty McFly’s present day life in 1985 a little bit sweeter. Check out the new Playmobil Back to the Future playsets below. Read More »

Oliver Rankin Back to the Future Posters

“When this baby hits 88 miles per hour, you’re gonna see some serious shit.”

A new batch of Back to the Future posters by artist Oliver Rankin certainly make good on that promise. In this trilogy set from Bottleneck Gallery and Vice Press, the iconic DeLorean time machine from Robert Zemeckis‘ classic film franchise is speeding through 1985, 2015 and 1885, each with a different version of the vehicle generating the 1.21 gigawatts of electricity needed to activate the flux capacitor.

Back to the Future Part II ReAction Figures

It’s been years since Funko released a Back to the Future line of ReAction Figures, taking the basic approach to action figures with the minimal amount of articulation and the most basic of body and face sculpts. Inspired by the classic 3.75-inch action figures that were popular in the 1980s and 1990s, the ReAction Figures line has given us a lot of the movie characters that we wished we had growing up. But these figures started with Super7, and that’s who’s making the new line of Back to the Future Part II ReAction figures that are now available for pre-order. Read More »

Back to the Future 4K

The 30th anniversary of Back to the Future took place back in 2015, which somehow feels like it was literal eons ago and only yesterday at the same time. I think it’s because even through multiple generations, Robert Zemeckis‘s time travel comedy has never really left the public consciousness. But to celebrate the film’s 35th anniversary later this year, the entire trilogy is finally getting a 4K release for the first time ever.

And while the new Back to the Future: The Ultimate Trilogy box set repackages plenty of existing bonus features, it also includes over an hour of brand new features, including the casting auditions of then-up-and-coming actors like Ben Stiller and Kyra Sedgwick. Get the details below. Read More »

Back to the Future Too

In Back to the Future Part II, there’s a subplot in which Michael J. Fox’s Marty McFly travels to an alternate version of the future which is bleak and terrible. It’s easy to imagine that we’re currently living in a worse version of that timeline in the real world, but while things are pretty dire right now, there’s a small ray of light, too.

Yesterday, a fan-made remake of Back to the Future Part II premiered on YouTube. It’s called Project 88 – Back to the Future Too, and more than 300 people across nine countries contributed to the DIY remake while abiding by social distancing and quarantine guidelines that were in place due to the coronavirus. So make sure your time circuits are on and your flux capacitor is fluxing, and let the creativity on display in this remake put a smile on your face. Read More »
