The next LEGO CUUSOO set will immortalise the Back to the Future trilogy in bricks.

LEGO CUUSOO allows people to submit and vote for LEGO ideas and following the Shinkai 6500, the Hayabusa and a Minecraft set, Back to the Future is the latest CUUSOO idea to get the green light.

The Back to the Future Time Machine was submitted by two fan builders and is obviously based on the 1980s film trilogy starring Michael J. Fox,

The LEGO Back to the Future Time Machine was chosen due to ‘its broad worldwide appeal’ and that it ‘lends itself to challenging and creative building for both children and adults’.

This set features the Flux Capacitor, a time display tile, the Mr. Fusion Home Energy Reactor and LEGO Minifigure versions of Marty McFly and Dr. Emmet 'Doc' Brown.

All three versions of the DeLorean can be created and the set includes a booklet containing production notes, original images and fun details from the movies.

Fans whose LEGO CUUSOO ideas are selected for production earn one percent of the total net sales of the product and fan collaborators on this LEGO CUUSOO project, Masashi Togami and Minifig Builder Sakuretsu, will donate royalties to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.

LEGO Back to the Future is available this week in limited quantities at the LEGO booth at San Diego Comic Con and participating European LEGO stores. It goes on sale globally August 1 in the online LEGO Shop, LEGO Stores, and select retail partners, at a recommended price of $34.99.
