Great Scott! Lego has announced a new version of the classic time-travelling car from Back To The Future, that can be built in three different ways.

The kit, based on the sleek DMC DeLorean, will finally allow fans of the Michael J Fox sci-fi series to build the car as it's seen in the three movies released between 1985 and 1990.

The previous Lego version of the car, released in 2013, was designed by a fan and released as part of the CUUSOO range.

“Universal, Amblin Entertainment and the Back to the Future filmmakers are delighted to have partnered with the Lego team in the creation of this fantastic kit,” said Bob Gale, co-writer and co-producer of the trilogy.

“In the movie, Doc Brown spent almost 30 years and his entire family fortune to build his Time Machine. Fortunately, you’ll be able to build this Lego model in significantly less time and with far less expense – although your completed version will be unable to travel through time!”

Lego set designer Sven Franic commented: “Since its release in the 1985, Back to the Future continues to be a cult film and a favourite for generations of fans all over the world – including myself. I had so much fun reliving my favourite moments from all three films on this exciting and nostalgic design adventure.

“The shared timelessness of Lego bricks and the Back to the Future franchise is something we really wanted to capture for this set, so we hope fans will enjoy racing through time in Lego style.”
