The first Back to the Future movie in 1985 spawned two sequels, and has been inspiring LEGO builders ever since. Doc Brown’s time-traveling DeLorean DMC-12 alone has been rebuilt in LEGO more times than we can count. See some of the best BTTF models right here on The Brothers Brick.
I recently finished these two mosaics and was able to display them at Emerald City Comic Con this last weekend. They are my first mosaics but won’t be my last, as they were much more fun than I was expecting. I guess there is something to be said for building outside your comfort zone, eh?
I was also able to meet Rob Paulsen and Maurice LaMarche, the voice talent behind Pinky & The Brain, and get them to sign the mosaic. Unfortunately, Christopher Lloyd had to cancel or I would have snagged his autograph too. Oh well…you can’t win them all!
Alex Jones’ (“Orion Pax”) Back to the Future DeLorean looks like an actual diecast model rather than a Lego creation. Despite the spray-painted hull, it’s still a legit build due to the skillful customization job.
Alex Jones (Orion Pax) built a Back to the Future diorama featuring various buildings from Hill Valley. Each building has its own unique color scheme and architecture worthy of a closer look. You can see the entire layout on Flickr.
Even though Alex (Orion Pax) couldn’t afford to join the likes of Brian Wilson and Kanye West in owning a pair of the new Nike MAGs from Back to the Future, that didn’t stop him building his own from LEGO.
Auctions of the real shoes benefited Michael J. Fox’s research foundation for Parkinson’s disease, and raised several million dollars.
Iain Heath celebrates the 25th anniversary of the first “Back To The Future” movie with builds of Marty McFly and Biff Griff Tannen…from the second movie. However, built with Iain’s usual flair for the awesome, these dudes invoke the true feel of the characters. Well played, Iain, well played indeed!
