Christopher Lloyd's LEGO Ad Makes Us Want A New Back To The Future Movie

Doc Brown returns in this fun trailer for WB Games’ Lego Dimensions, in which the zany scientist helps construct the device that enables the toys (including his own tiny doppleganger, and lots of other familiar faces that have nothing to do with Back to the Future) to virtually “come to life.” » 5/23/15 4:50pm 5/23/15 4:50pm

Could Doc Brown's DeLorean Even Get Up To 88 MPH In That Parking Lot?

The DeLorean was known for a lot of things. Speed was not one of them. Underpowered even by early 1980s standards, it was a bizarre choice for a time machine that needed to hit 88 MPH to cross the temporal barrier. But could Doc Brown’s car even go that fast in the Twin, er, Lone Pine Mall parking lot like it does in… » 5/13/15 5:58pm 5/13/15 5:58pm

A Cheaper Non-Hovering Hoverboard Prop That Doesn't Feel Like a Rip-Off

Back in 2012 Mattel decided to toss Back to the Future II fans a futuristic bone in the form of a hoverboard replica that looked exactly like the one Marty McFly rode in the time-traveling sequel. The one feature it lacked, of course, was the ability to actually hover. That made its $130 price tag a little steep, but … » 3/28/15 1:40pm 3/28/15 1:40pm

Museum Giving Away Back to the Future Car (If Cubs Win World Series)

We're still waiting on many of the futuristic technologies from Back to the Future: Part II. We don't have Marty's hoverboard, Doc's electronic technology that puts you to sleep, or the government's total weather control. But you might have a chance to win Doc Brown's DeLorean — provided the Cubs win the World Series. » 3/18/15 1:02pm 3/18/15 1:02pm

This car parade of DeLoreans is the coolest thing

A prediction about the future that I'm pretty confident in making: this picture will be the best thing to come out of St Patrick's Day 2015. The photo, showing a line up of DeLoreans and a BTTF DeLorean caboose, was taken by BruceK and shows the DeLorean portion of the 2015 St. Patrick's Day Parade in Toronto. » 3/16/15 7:55pm 3/16/15 7:55pm

The BTTF clock tower scene perfectly recreated with Lego

If you needed any further proof that everything is better with Lego, the folks at Macro Lego Universe recreated the iconic clock tower scene from the end of the original Back to the Future movie. Given how successful The Lego Movie was, it's probably not a bad idea for Hollywood to just recreate every movie we've ever… » 3/05/15 12:18pm 3/05/15 12:18pm

No One Asked For a Flux Capacitor Version of Yahtzee, But We'll Take It

It's impossible to improve the gameplay of classic board games like Monopoly, Scrabble, or even Yahtzee. So how do you go about convincing people to buy more copies of a game that stays playable for decades? You re-brand it. Monopoly is already available in about a thousand different flavors, and now it's time for… » 2/26/15 9:57am 2/26/15 9:57am

Only Time Travel Can Make this Perfect BTTF DeLorean Arrive Any Sooner

For toy car collectors who prefer their miniature rides a bit larger than just a few inches long, the Hot Wheels Elite line has been churning out some incredibly detailed models. And at Toy Fair this weekend Mattel gave everyone a sneak peek at its upcoming take on the time-travelling DeLorean from the Back to the… » 2/16/15 9:33am 2/16/15 9:33am

Awesome animation is like a cross between Back to the Future and Tron

If this video doesn't get you going, you're dead inside and we can't be friends. Florian Renner made this short animation, Retrowave, as an ode to the style of the 1980's. It basically combines the worlds of Back to the Future and Tron by turning the DeLorean into a Light Cycle on The Grid. » 2/10/15 11:30pm 2/10/15 11:30pm

This Lego Toyota pickup is better than Marty McFly's

First things first: Paul Kim's self-designed Lego 1983 Toyota Hilux is not the truck from Back to the Future. But when you build a black '80s Toyota on beefy tires with a rollbar and yellow fog lights, comparisons tend to be made. And given the details in Paul's Lego truck, his would beat Marty's any day of the week. » 12/26/14 5:59pm 12/26/14 5:59pm

Tonight's Episode of The Goldbergs is All About Hoverboard Promises

Were you one of those kids who saw Robert Zemeckis insist that hoverboards were real back in 1989? Then tonight's episode of the ABC sitcom The Goldbergs is for you. In the episode Adam wants to come up with a cool explanation for how he broke his arm, so he decides that he'll tell people he was riding a hoverboard.… » 12/03/14 6:18pm 12/03/14 6:18pm

Back to the Future's Hoverboards Were Originally Way Bigger

The hoverboard from Back to the Future: Part II is one of the most iconic artifacts of 20th century futurism. But surprisingly, the hovering toys were originally envisioned to be much larger than what made it on screen. That's according to John Bell, the visual effects art director on the classic 1989 film. » 11/25/14 2:59pm 11/25/14 2:59pm

You Can Never Really Be Late With a Flux Capacitor Watch

You can cross a smartwatch off your wish list this holiday season now that ThinkGeek has revealed this utterly amazing compact Flux Capacitor Watch that really fluxes.
