Eaglemoss Collections, the UK’s leading publisher of partworks and collections, is launching a unique and exciting product. The Build the Back to the Future DeLorean collectors’ magazine series gives readers the opportunity, week-by-week, to piece together a beautiful 1:8 scale replica of the iconic car from the Back to the Future movies, the DeLorean DMC-12.
Available from December 26, the DeLorean is made of die-cast metal and high-quality ABS. It is packed with details and forms an extremely accurate representation of the original car, including working interior and exterior lights, the iconic gullwing doors and a careful replica of the time machine components on the back. To achieve this, Eaglemoss collaborated with Joe Walser, who restored the original time machine for Universal Pictures.
The detailing of this model is second to none from my favourite film franchise of all time. I cannot wait until this hits the shelves so I can get started right away!
Ben Robinson, head of Eaglemoss’s Men’s Licensed projects, commented:
“Few films are as iconic and loved as Back to the Future, and it’s a real pleasure to have worked on the model which is a thing of beauty.
“Not only does our new partwork collection give long-time fans the chance to have their own time machine, it takes something you’ve loved and makes it real.
“As with all of our products, an enormous amount of research went into the model and we owe a massive debt to our consultant Joe Walser who rebuilt the original car from the movie and knows more about it than anyone else alive. All-importantly the DeLorean model is remarkably simple to build. We are confident that this new collectors’ series will gives anyone who builds it an enormous amount of pleasure and give them something to be proud of.”
Launching late December Eaglemoss’s DMC-12 DeLorean model can be purchased in kit form with manuals from the website, or in WHSmith, all good newsagents and Morrisons.
