Mattel to sell Back to the Future Toys
Posted 19 October 2010 - 06:49 PM
Sadly, like the GB line, I forsee lots of variations of Marty and Doc which not lend itself to longevity for the line. Most people will be satisfied with a 'classic' Marty in his vest and a Doc in a white lab coat or something. After that, the demand for variants such as Marty in radiation suit, 1950s look, future Marty Jr., old west etc will drop. While there are probably collectors out there psyched to get some or all of those, I don't think the demand will be great. The same goes for Doc variations and to a lesser extent other characters. Are you really clamoring for a Prinicpal figure?
That being said, I'm excited to see these happen for however long they keep the line going. I've been wanting a Marty and Doc figure forever!!
And please oh please make a DeLorean that's inscale with the 6". Please oh please find a way to make it happen.

There are lots of 'famous' vehicles that I would love in 1:12 scale.
General Lee, K.I.T.T., Magnum's Ferrari, etc
Also, after GB and BttF, what other famous movie franchises would you like to see Mattel tackle?

so ghostbusters has a corner around here, indiana jones has one. how about a back to the future corner? since their seems to come a lot from mattel in the next years, it could be cool to have everything together.

the only thing i dont understand is mattel saying no to a dcuc batmobil or ecto-1 or a delorian. they say that there is no real demand for it. how do they know that? how can they know this when they havent even tried it out??? hasbro sells a 19insh galactus for crying out loud and it seems to do really well. i hear people all the time for a dcuc batmobil. the vehicules for motuc are on everyones wishlist. the ecto-1 is even more in demand. the delorian is a must. why do a line of timetravelers when they have no time machine? makes no sense.

Also, I saw the anniversary BttF screening on Saturday, and it was awesome seeing on the big screen. There were kids there who had never seen it before, which was cool, and the theater manager was asking trivia questions before the show started. As a bonus, we got free posters for attending, and I finally found the miniMate DeLorean and black Hot Wheels DeLorean. Great Scott!

Is that the same one that lights up?
Yeah. They had a PartII version and a dirty PartIII version with the wooden stuff strapped to the hood and different wheels.
I got the PartII version because it was a more 'classic' look.
I was debating whether or not to splurge on it, but I knew if I left it on the shelf and never saw it again, it'd be one of those 'awww man I wish I wouldve bought that...' Moments.
