Growing up, I was always more of a LEGO kid than a Playmobil kid. I always liked how LEGO bricks and minifigs left more to the imagination than Playmobil, so I felt I could be more creative with their toys. However, when it comes to anything Back to the Future related, I have a soft spot in my heart. So when I saw that Playmobil had released a Back to the Future playset, I just had to have one for my toy collection.
The centerpiece of the 64-piece set is a 9.8″ long replica of Doc and Marty’s iconic DeLorean DMC-12, complete with gullwing doors, and wheels that fold 90-degrees for flying. It’s got lots of neat little details, like a Mr. Fusion machine on back, and time travel controls on the dashboard. The blue lighting along the roofline and front bumper really bring it all to life.
In addition to their stainless steel steed, the set includes figures of both Doc and Marty, Einstein the dog, along with a skateboard, Marty’s video camera, Doc’s remote control, plutonium cores, and a hazmat case.
You can grab the complete Playmobil Back to the Future set over on Amazon for about $49.99. Where we’re going, we don’t need LEGO.
