BTTF Time Machine Bass Guitar: Bass to the Future

BTTF Time Machine Bass Guitar: Bass to the Future
In Back to the Future, Marty loved to play the guitar. I’m thinking if he ever asked Doc Brown to make him a musical instrument, it might have looked like this. Sure, he’d have to learn to play the bass, but I’m sure he’d be fine with that. This awesome one-of-a-kind custom electric bass was designed and built by Chicago guitar makers Steve and Richard Doner, and features lots off cool design touches inspired by Doc and Marty’s time-traveling DeLorean DMC-12.

Back to the Future II DeLorean Hovercraft for Sale: Great Scott!

Back to the Future II DeLorean Hovercraft for Sale: Great Scott!
I am so glad that no one has remade, rebooted, or changed the gender in Back to the Future. These movies should be left alone. If they did reboot it they would likely feel the need to give us some new versions of the time-traveling DeLorean.

This Original Back to the Future II Sneaker Needs to Go Back to the Past

This Original Back to the Future II Sneaker Needs to Go Back to the Past
Time marches on and in the end, it gets us all. Back To The Future II’s sneakers, like the rest of us, are at time’s mercy. Currently offered on eBay is a single shoe (the left one) of one of the pairs of Nike Air Mags used in the production of the classic 1989 sci-fi comedy. This is one of the shoes made specifically for the movie, and sadly it’s falling apart.

Back to the Fury Road

Back to the Fury Road
All Hollywood seems to know how to do these days is make remakes, reboots, rehashes, and retreads. One of the movies that they haven’t touched yet is Back to the Future, and they must never be allowed to soil this classic franchise.

Back to the Future Lunch Box: Back to the Cafeteria

Back to the Future Lunch Box: Back to the Cafeteria
Growing up, the thing I looked hardest for each year when it was time to go back to school wasn’t shoes or shirts, it was a new lunch box. The competition for coolest box at lunch was intense, and if yours sucked, kids made fun of you.

Nike HyperAdapt 1.0 Self-lacing Sneakers: HELLLOOO McFly!

Nike HyperAdapt 1.0 Self-lacing Sneakers: HELLLOOO McFly!
The DeLorean time machine was certainly the thing I wanted most from the Back to the Future movies. I would have also settled for that hoverboard McFly rode around on. I’m not really into footwear, but the thought of shoes that tied themselves and had lights on them was very appealing when I was a kid. Nike has a modernized version of McFly’s shoes coming out this year. 

Knight Rider Back to Future DeLorean: Back to the Hasselhoff

Knight Rider Back to Future DeLorean: Back to the Hasselhoff
Two of our favorite cars just got mashed up head on at 88 MPH, with Michael Knight behind the wheel of one and Doc Brown behind the wheel of the other. Yes, one ambitious fan has taken a classic DeLorean and transformed it into a mashup of the time machine from Back to the Future and Michael Knight’s classic car K.I.T.T.

DeLorean Time Machine Cake: Hover Converted Dessert
London-based Tattooed Bakers have wowed us before with their Maleficent and zombie horse cakes, but they went all out for Back to the Future day. The dessert masters made a DeLorean time machine cake that looks more like a toy than something edible. Tattooed Bakers made the cake for software maker Bullhorn.

Back to the Future Cafes Hit Japan

Back to the Future Cafes Hit Japan
We celebrate Back to the Future Day today, October 21, 2015, which was the date on the dash of the DeLorean time machine when Marty and Doc arrived in the future. I still don’t have my Hoverboard, and thankfully, cars don’t look as ridiculous as they did in the movie. If you live in Japan, five pop-up cafes have opened to celebrate the day.

Marty and Doc Travel to the Real 2015

Marty and Doc Travel to the Real 2015
The 2015 that Doc and Marty time traveled to in Back to the Future Part II was pretty awesome. Way cooler than our 2015. I’m still waiting for a decent hoverboard and those self-lacing sneakers. Flying cars too.
