Agreed to all of the above, but I'll still buy it. Partially because I love that series of movies, and partially to help support the Cuusoo movement. But yeah, not quite up to the caliber I would expect...

We need a UCS Delorean. Shame there are no minifigures with it as well.

Nice Freddie ^^

Agreed on the Delorean but I too will purchase one. We'll have to try and make our own figs to go with it.

While I think it could have been done a little better, I feel like they wanted to keep the product similar to what the fans voted on. They did make some considerable upgrades to the model however. I think the fan made hood element is more true to the original car than the actual release. Not quite sure what the thinking was there. But overall I prefer the version being released.

Gotta make a hover board to go with Marty. Nice touch.

So it does come with minifigures.

Bricknews has posted an image containing the box and minifigures for the upcoming LEGO BTTF DeLorean 21103 set! It will include Marty McFly and Doc Brown minifigures. In addition, the instructions provided contains three different versions of the Back to the Future DeLorean Time Machine representing the 3 different movies. Price would apparently be £34.99. Thanks to staff Brickbuilder0937 for the heads up.

Nice! Back to the Future minifigs, a hoverboard/skateboard, and it looks like a time circuits block as well.

Just hope they get those dates correct! Don't want to see ANY MORE incorrect meme gifs in my facebook feed... (stupid people, happens every damn month)

Also love that the flux capacitor is there!

Nice. My kids are starting to reach the age where they play with Legos and I might pick this one up to add to the collection.

That's awesome news! They're gonna sell a ton more of this set with figures in it. Congrats to the person who created it. I wonder what 1% looks like from one of these sets?

I was trying to hold out until July for my next Lego.com order (because I wanted the Hot Dog cart freebie) but pulled the trigger Saturday on the Creator Apple Tree House. It said call for availability, I did, and was told there were only 10 left in stock. 1 is on its way to my house along with the Creator Log Cabin.

Nice! I love the Creator series, and really am excited to get that new modern house set they just showed off. The Log Cabin is ok, the base model is a little flimsy (at least for the little hands in my house), but was a fun build.

The modular buildings are really fun. The only problem is after you finish one, you'll feel like getting another one, and another, until you are trying to track down older ones on ebay.
