Back to the Future II hoverboard replica teased to ToyFair attendees
Posted by Patrick Sauriol on Tuesday, February 14, 2012
2015 is just three short years away. Unless the world sees some rapid technological discoveries in flying cars, 3D holographic, hydrated food and home fusion kits, I don't think that we're going to get to the same future world glimpsed in the 2015 scenes from 1989's Back to the Future Part II.
Nike Power Laces could happen. Mattel's Hoverboard? Perhaps we won't get one that floats on air like Marty McFly's, but we'll get the next best thing: an official replica that will "glide over most surfaces". Huh?
A display standing at last weekend's ToyFair boasted that a 1:1 replica of Marty's famed pink Hoverboard is being offered by the MattyCollector website. According to the info posted on the website, orders for the Hoverboard replica will be accepted between March 1 to March 20. If enough orders are collected for this "high-cost item", it'll go into production and ship to buyers sometime in November/December 2012. The price hasn't yet been revealed by the company.
MattyCollector.com claims that their Hoverboard prop will "glide over most surfaces" but that it doesn't actually hover. (If it did I'd suggest that they have figured out something more important than selling BttF collectibles.)
