Hook on! Buy Griff's 'Back to the Future Part II' Pitbull Hoverboard
Last year, Mattel's adult oriented collectible arm Matty Collector released what was supposed to be a fantastic replica of Marty McFly's hoverboard from Back to the Future Part II. However, what once was a product approved by writer Bob Gale became a panned hunk of plastic that was better in theory than execution. As someone who has the replica in question, it looks nice on display, but I was hoping for more. If anyone else feels the same and they happen to have $13,000 lying around, they can pick up Griff Tannen's Pitbull hoverboard. Remember, the other board doesn't work on water, unless you got power!
The board measures 36" and is made of wood, resin and metal. The only thing that seems to be missing (according to the description) is the rear foot pad component for the top of the board. The product page says this one of the original hero prototype versions designed by the art department. It was not seen on screen, but it's about the closest thing you'll get. It's always hard to tell the legitimacy of these things on eBay, and this seems like something that would be better sold through Profiles in History, the movie prop auction house featured on the SyFy series Hollywood Treasures. Still, it's pretty damn cool. Anyone buying?
