In terms of licensed IPs within LEGO, time-travel sci-fi franchise “Back to the Future” is quite a minor label. One might describe it as a special one-off. “BTTF” set representation lies only in LEGO Ideas (during its Cuusoo days), the defunct “LEGO Dimensions,” and one BrickHeadz twofer. Still, there are LEGO-collecting fans of “Back to the Future” who would like more tie-ins. It’s no wonder that rumors of a new LEGO set featuring the DeLorean time machine are frequently followed. We covered an iteration of this speculation in November last year. Now, the buzz is back again in full force.
Stone Wars tells us that the long-alleged LEGO DeLorean (10300) from “Back to the Future” is coming closer. Sure, the possible April 1 launch date makes the whole thing “sus,” as “Among Us” players might say. But there is the fact that the set name apparently carries the “DMC-12” designation of the actual car. That is, even if this turns out not to be the “BTTF” DeLorean time machine, it could also be a model of the DMC DeLorean car instead. The other details remain the same: Creator Expert, Age 18+. As for pricing, it’s now €179.99 or $199.99 (estimate).
Being a Creator Expert set, the rumored DeLorean (10300) won’t be of a scale for minifigures. That hasn’t stopped LEGO from adding minifigs to stand on an info plaque display or something. They’ve done so with other pop-culture vehicles before. Remember Batman Batmobile Tumbler (76240)? Anyway, “Back to the Future” time machine or car, this set is supposed to arrive next month. We have the rest of March to wait for details. Until they come up, we’ll continue to chalk this up as a rumor.
