If you are a fan of Back to the Future, you may have already heard that last week Mattel began accepting pre-orders for Hoverboards!
Other than the fact that they don’t actually hover, these new replica boards from Mattel reportedly look indistinguishable from the ones appearing in the films Back to the Future 2 and 3. Prior to last week, the only way to get one of these was to either order a non-authorized unofficial replica prop or build one yourself.
The official boards from Mattel are currently available for pre-order from now through March 20th for $120 (plus tax and shipping). Anyone pre-ordering one of the boards will also receive a scaled-down version of the board, suited for 6″ action figures.
As a guy who just dropped $100 on a Wampa rug for his den, I’m still on the fence in regards to this one. While it’s a good looking replica, I’m thinking about waiting until 2015 for the ones that hover to arrive. ;)
