Finally, the Lego kit I have been waiting for has arrived and I had time to actually build it the other day.
I am talking about the amazing Back To The Future DeLorean Time Machine. I will start off by stating that I loved this kit and love this build. If you are a fan of the movie, then this is a MUST HAVE!
Let me share some photos so you can see how cool it really is so you can justify buying one for yourself or kids.
When I opened up the box the goods come organized like this
The booklet had some great information in it besides the instruction build. It was a joy to read.
The kit comes with some additional add on pieces. The red hub cap, a new upgraded engine, and a clean energy diffuser
Of course my guilty pleasure are minifigs so I just love these two! You can rotate the head to unveil different facial expressions which is very cool indeed!
And of course the wheels fold in for flying perfection!
Here is a top view
Here is a back view( you can swap our the license plate if you wish)
Here is my final picture taken with the doors open the way I like it!
I loved it. It was not a complicated build, but one that I enjoyed doing. The moving pieces make this cool whether the wheels, the doors, or other items. If you can get your hands on this one, then I suggest you get one.
Now onwards to figure out how to connect it to a EV3 brick to give it some actual speed!
