If you aren’t aware by now, Back to the Future is one of my favorite franchises. I still wear a calculator watch and owning a Delorean is still on my bucket list.
The animated series picks up where the movie trilogy left off with Doc Brown on his Hill Valley farm with wife Clara and sons Jules and Verne. Although the usual movie characters made occasional appearances, the show focused primarily on the Brown family. The show ran for 2 seasons on CBS on Saturday mornings from 1991-92 before the reruns reappeared in the FoxBox in the early 2000s.
Trivia note: It was the first production of Universal Cartoon Studios.
NECA knew how popular the franchise was and worked some of their usual magic to acquire the license for not only the movie related stuff but the animated series as well. When they made all of their Back to the Future reveals at Toy Fair, I was most excited for the Ultimate movie versions but was pleasantly surprised they decided to give us some animated series offerings as well. I also feel it was smart thinking to follow the Toony Terrors model keeping them simple and affordable. At $12.99 each, it makes the decision much easier for someone who is on the fence. (more…)
I happened to be in Walmart on the first and was lucky enough to find the new Playmobil Back to the Future Delorean. Playmobil revealed their new Back to the Future offerings this past year at NYCC. The Back to the Future franchise is one of my favorites, and I am a firm believer that one can never have too many Deloreans.
Playmobil has been coming to NYCC the past few years and have always brought some pretty cool reveal, and this year was no exception. They revealed not one, but two new licenses. It looks like fans will be excited to hear that Scooby Doo and Back to the Future will be joining the Playmobil family. (more…)
If you know me you know Back to the Future is one of my favorite franchises. So much so, an actual DeLorean is in my future. So I was pretty excited when Funko released a new Marty McFly Exclusive POP! at this weekend’s Fan Expo Canada. The new POP! is Marty sporting his Buddy Holly guitar from his performance at the Enchantment Under the Sea dance.
From two of the biggest names in toys and collectibles, Funko and Playmobil toys, comes a team-up meant to be collected! It’s the same stylization of the Playmobil figures you’ve loved since 1974… But twice the size! (more…)
