The gull-wing doors open up smoothly, allowing you to put in up to two minifigures (seats have to be removed - which is super-easy to do). The seats are adjustable, as is the steering wheel. And now there's even a flux capacitor inside the cabin!
About this creation
Inspiration: The modified, flying DeLorean time machine from the movies, "Back to the Future" and "Back to the Future II"
No. of Parts: 287
Dimensions (LxWxH): 6.5 x 3.75 x 2.5" or 16.5 x 9.5 x 5.5cm
(Version 4.0 is a redesign of our 2.1 design - sleeker, stronger, better doors, more accessories and still has the same hover mode and capability to seat two minifigures!)
Our DeLorean V2.1 was by far our most popular and highly praised item we have ever offered. But we decided it was time for something new, something sleeker and better built. Our Version 4.0 retains the same smooth hover-mode wheel system that made V2.1 so popular, however it is now wrapped up in a stronger frame while also allowing a lower height to more accurately match the real DeLorean DMC-12. The gull-wing doors open up smoothly, allowing you to put in up to two minifigures (seats have to be removed - which is super-easy to do). The seats are adjustable, as is the steering wheel. And now there's even a flux capacitor inside the cabin!
Includes a plutonium chamber attachment, a Mr. Fusion and a conducting rod that slides into the back of the car. Now any scene from the first two Back to the Future movies can be replicated!
I spent more time designing the folding wheels assembly than everything else put together. These wheels simply don't just flip down underneath the car - they extend out, flip down and then are pushed up into the wheel cavity in one smooth motion. Once you are finished flying, you can simply push the wheels back into position and start driving on solid ground - the wheel assembly is designed to automatically "lock" into position to prevent any jamming or slipping.
I sell complete kits of this model at www.ichibantoys.com . The kit includes all of the brand-new official LEGOŽ parts needed packaged in polybags, plus a heavyweight gloss-cover color instruction booklet!
