DeLorean Time Machine
DMC DeLorean from the "Back to the Future" Movies
About this creation
So, here it is, my LEGO Delorean Time Machine from the "Back to the Future" movies. Everyone knows it, right. Anyway, I'd just watch the first BttF recently, and then became inspired to make this out of LEGO. Mainly just to have, and because it is so darn cool. So I did.

   I have modified this car slighly since these pics, So see below pics for a Hover Conversion, removal of the Octane tile and extra detail.



Enlarge image
   So, what happends when the car his 88 mph with 1.21 Jigowatts of electricity? It leaves tracks of flames! And also goes back in time. Or forward in time, depending on preference.



Enlarge image
   And it melts the roads.



Enlarge image
   A bad close up of the back with a cr*ppy Mr. Fusion thing.



Enlarge image
   All fuelled up, the DeLorean can get ready for its next adventure...



Enlarge image
   What? You want me to make a comment for all of these? This is to look like the poster for the film.



Enlarge image
   Woo, I changed the car slightly. Here are some pics of the new additions. As you can see, I have finally, after much searching, found the brick to replace the Octan tile. The car is instantly improved.

   I also included those wires from the front to the back that go over the wheels. I originally though I would have to se some tubing like at the back to put them in...



Enlarge image
   ...but I found one of these tubes in the LEGO pile, and tried using one for the task. It came out pretty well, in my opinion.



Enlarge image
   I also devised a cool way to make the wheels rotate so it can fly (a la BttF II). First, you remove the wheel from the axle...



Enlarge image
   ...connect the wheel to this other axle-pin part...

(Skip over the next picture for what happens next)



Enlarge image
   So anyway, here is the front. This one is a bit like Scorps, but that's mainly because I used the same doors and windshield. This is because I couldn't find any other way that looked as good, to make the doors open that way.



Enlarge image
   ...and connect this part to the existing axle to create rotated flying wheels!



Enlarge image
   Three times more, and you've got yourself a hover conversion.



Enlarge image
   Whee! I can fly!



Enlarge image
   I mentioned before about why the rear tyre is not bigger than the front tire? This is why. I don't think it looks as good as the other tyre, myself. Kind of like is a Dragster, Jeep and DeLorean could have a baby. Or something.

   Fly away...




Enlarge image
   I used some SNOT on this creation, also it is one of my best creations. This car is white, however, because I did not have any of the right pieces in grey close at hand. It still looks quite cool in white though.



Enlarge image
   The... back of the car, with the "Time Engine" things. Once again, I'm not boasting about this being great, because another thing I got from Scorp's DeLorean was those red and blue trans things there on the back. I put them there because it looked a little plain without them. They also went well with the lines that goes across the engine, represented by the black tube.



Enlarge image
   Moving on, we have the top, I'll say the Octan tile is sponsorship, but it is really because I couldn't find a single 6x1 white tile.



Enlarge image
   The doors, are, the best thing about the car, besides the fact that it can go through time. The doors actually stretched the thickness of the car to 10 studs, even though the engines and hood sections are only 6.



Enlarge image
   A simple Marty fig to go with the car... Not much to say...



Enlarge image
   The interior. This car can sit two minifigs comfotably, but I never made the Doc. I don't knw how I could effectively. Has LEGO ever actually made white-ish minifig hair? Tan perhaps, but hey...



Enlarge image
   So, what happends when the car his 88 mph with 1.21 Jigowatts of electricity?

Very good, Caleb! I left of a smiley because the Octan sign and a few other things kind of spoil it a bit, but it's still great. No worse than mine, that's for sure. Good job on the overall shape, and the "junk" on the back looks great. Oh, and it's 1.21 gigawatts. ;-)

Tis pretty good looking, although light grey would've better matched the actual color of the Delorean than white.

Sweet! The open door and back shots are the best.
