Last night at Comic-Con’s preview night, The latest LEGO CUUSOO set Back to the Future went on sale. Along with it came the official announcement posted on the CUUSOO site. If that’s not enough information for you. The brothers over at The Brother’s Brick got a preview copy to review. which is informative, and provides some otherwise unpublished published pictures.
I could take some time and type a whole raft of comments and notes about what I can see in the set, but instead I think I’d be better off limiting it to what I see as the major points and then letting you look through the pictures, and watch the Video for yourself.

Lego has warned, that when the sets first appear in September, there will be a limited supply due to the expedited production and product launch timeline. SO both sets will probably experience the same shortages that were common with the first LEGO Minecraft set.
All that aside, the best part of this news is the possibility that other LEGO CUUSOO sets and themes could be expanded into multiple sets.
Back in December, LEGO Cuusoo, Lego’s Crowd sourcing platform, announced that the nest crowd idea to be made into a set would be the Back To The Future Delorean. And now, Brick News has the first images of the set form what appears to be an internal document. There are some unique pieces and Figures to collect.
The set is expected to be available July 18th, for a cost of £34.99 (sorry no word on the US pricing). Just like the last CUUSOO set Minecraft, we can expect this one to be hard to find in stores, being primarily available form LEGO stores, and online.
All credit goes to "Sven" on moc-pages.com for the design. I reversed engineered it from a few pictures he posted. His model is quite faithful to trucks used by UPS that were made by International Harvester Company. I made a few minor changes. I had to make one eventually since I drive a brown truck for a living. Needs mirrors, is missing a few brown headlight bricks, and I have a plan to limit the "stamp" effect. Stickers are wrong scale, but oh well. I’m not sure if those brown tubes I used on the back are real Lego, just found them in a parts bin. …
Hey! I bought this on impulse a couple of weeks ago but I’m now trying to sell it because I need the money. Is there anyone interested in buying it. It’s brand new and unopened. I was going to sell it on Ebay but I just want to check here first to see if anyone is interested. It’s sold out in the stores at the moment, so this could be a great opportunity if you’re trying to buy one. I paid around $860 for it, with tax included, so I’m not willing to sell it for less than that. I will simply sell it to whomever is willing to pay the most.
As I am sure many of us have Lego ornaments on Christmas trees this time of year, please share a pic of one of your favorites that you have hanging this year – any design, MOC, designed by Lego, Chris McVeigh, etc. I’d love to see what people have. …
