Own Your Own Hoverboard (Doesn’t Fly)

by


A while back, there was an opportunity to purchase one of the original hoverboards from Back to the Future II, but that one sold for over $22,000 at auction. Here’s a chance for you to own your own, at a fraction of that price.

For just $85 (USD), you can own a full-size replica of the original Mattel Hoverboard, handcrafted by JGDesignz. It looks very much like the one featured in the movie – after Marty McFly steals it from the little girl and pops the handle off, that is.

Each Hoverboard measures about 8″ wide by 27″ long, and is made out of rigid 1/2″ thick foam board, with hand-painted wood pieces on the bottom, coated with clear-coat and epoxied to the board. To finish it off, there are accurate vinyl decals on both sides, along with the velcro foot strap thing on the back too.

If you want one of these for yourself, head on over to Etsy, and get your order in right away. Since each one is handmade, there could be a backlog if there’s enough demand. JG is careful to point out that the hoverboard does not actually function, so don’t bother if you had your heart set on riding one. Of course, with 2015 just a few years away, you never know if Mattel will make these for real.
