Since it's not only the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future, but also the actual year in which Marty McFly and Doc Brown traveled to the future in Back to the Future Part II, we're in store for a lot of celebrating in honor of the time travel franchise. We've already featured a cool time machine iPhone case, an awesome trilogy of fantastic prints, and there's supposed to be some kind of huge anniversary screening this year too in Los Angeles. But just like Ghostbusters had last year, it appears there's much more merchandising in store as well. At the Toy Fair earlier this month, some new products were unveiled, including Back to the Future versions of popular games like Monopoly and Yahtzee, and more. Look!
Here's a sneak peek at the Back to the Future versions of Monopoly and Yahtzee (via Blastr):
Some Vinyl Idolz figures coming from Funko sometime in the third quarter:
A 1:15 scale DeLorean time machine that's painted to look frosted, just after it's traveled in time:
And a new Hot Wheels Elite version of the DeLorean customizable for all three variants:
As you have presumed, the Monopoly game will use iconic locations from the films as properties, though we're not sure of the pieces involved yet. Surely there will be plenty of fighting over who gets to be the DeLorean, but hopefully there's a hoverboard too. In addition, that Yahtzee game that looks like the Flux Capacitor would look cool on a shelf (or in your car). We're betting this isn't all the cool new stuff we'll see this year for Back to the Future, and since we're big fans, we'll let you know once more pops up. Cool?
