Few makes of fine collectibles can raise a glass to our nerdy nostalgia quite like Hot Toys. Fresh off an incredible streak of can’t-miss Star Wars collectibles, the venerable makers of fine sixth-scale figures have revealed their upcoming recreations of Marty McFly and Dr. Emmett L. Brown as they appeared in “Back To The Future Part II”, and…wow.
As always, the details in the likenesses of Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd are almost obsessively meticulous in their details, from the fine lines of their faces down to their letter-perfect attire. Not to sound spoiled, but as Hot Toys creations go, that’s just par for the course. The same goes for the superb individual stand-up bases. However, we’re not sure they’ve ever outfitted any collectible figures as extensively as these two.
Get a load of Marty. We would have expected a fine-looking hoverboard, but then Hot Toys has to go and throw in a removable baseball cap, cylinder for his self-lacing Nikes, Pepsi, almanac (WITH A SLIPCASE), copy of USA Today, eight interchangeable hands, and as a special-edition bonus, a “Wild Gunman” light pistol. Heavy.
Doc himself comes with four hands of his own, a swank red patterned shirt just like the one he wears in the movie, his metallic Bret “Hitman” Hart-looking futuristic shades, an issue of USA Today of his own, case full of money, two watches, a hypnotizer, futuristic binoculars, and his own bonus Walkie-Talkie set. Great Scott.
You can pre-order both figures today for a better chance of nabbing shipments with bonus accessories. These collectibles are set to release somewhere between July and September of 2017.
