TOY FAIR 2012: Mattel to Release BACK TO THE FUTURE II Hoverboard
Published: February 16, 2012 - 10:32am
One of the most sought after collector's items is finally being produced. At this year's Toy Fair exp, Mattel officially announced a life sized replica of Marty McFly's Hoverboard will be released to the masses.
Back to the Future Hover Board: Finally! This totally awesome 1:1 replica of the hover board from the BTTF 2 and BTTF 3 films includes multiple whooshing sounds and will glide over most surfaces (does not actually “hover” – check back in 2015 for that feature). We’ll be taking orders for it March 1 – March 20, 2012, and the final product will be shipped around November/December 2012. Because this is such a high-cost item, there will be a minimum number of orders required to go into production. If we don’t receive the minimum orders, won’t go into production and customers will not be charged. The price will be announced later this month. (Note: Hover board does not work on water.)
