Playmobil is celebrating the 35th anniversary of Back to the Future with the launch of a new playset line featuring popular staples from the franchise, including Marty McFly, Dr. Emmett “Doc” Brown and the DeLorean Time Machine.
Releasing later this month, the Playmobile Back to the Future DeLorean Time Machine playset ($49.99) will feature McFly and Doc Brown figurines. They come with their 1985 outfits, Einstein the dog and the DeLorean DMC-12, complete with a plutonium tank, flux capacitor and dashboard time travel indicator. The DeLorean’s wheels also have a function that allows them to be rotated to a 90 degree angle.
Playmobil also released a set containing McFly and Doc Brown in their 1955 gear ($7.99), which also includes Marty’s Gibson ES-345 electric guitar from his memorable performance at his parents’ high school dance and Doc Brown’s changing newspaper.
Premiering in 1985, Back to the Future became a cultural phenomenon that grossed $389.1 million worldwide. The film went on to spawn two sequels, an animated series, video games, a theme park ride and Back to the Future the Musical, which took the stage in February this year.
More recently, Lea Thompson and Josh Gad announced the cast would reunite in a Back to the Future special for charity. Although they did not reveal specifically which members of the cast would take part, it was hinted both Michael J. Fox and Christopher Llyod would return as Marty McFly and Doc Brown.
Directed by Robert Zemeckis, Back to the Future stars Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson, Crispin Glover and Thomas F. Wilson. The film franchise is currently streaming on Netflix and is available to own on Blu-ray and DVD.
