As promised last month, official Back to the Future Hoverboard replicas from Mattel are now available for pre-order. The board is a 1:1 replica of the film version right down to the smallest detail (except for that whole hovering thing). It even features various “whooshing” sounds sampled from the movie.
Even if the board doesn’t hover, it’s not a bad deal for $120—especially since each board will come with a version scaled for 6-inch action figures.
Keep in mind that because of the high cost of production, Mattel must receive a minimum number of orders between now and March 20th in order to ship. Customers won’t be charged if the quota isn’t met, but not getting a board would be truly tragic. So pitch in and order while you can.
