"Well I figured, if you're going to build a time machine out of a car, why not do it with some style?"
I actually built this to make a cameo appearance in the background of my Takeover of Mordark LEGO comic (see the NOVA REFUGE section for the comic) just for fun. I only wanted it to be easily recognizable, but I ended up putting a lot more work into it than I had planned.
"Great shot, Doc!" - Marty (after Doc slams the door into Biff's face)
Some people may fuss at me for using big grey stickers on the top to make the doors look right. I felt it was necessary, because I felt it was necessary to have the doors open the right way (one of the neatest things about the car). Besides, I was using a lot of decals anyway, and it's not unlike something the LEGO company would do.
Since right now this is the BTTF1 DeLorean, I really should have put the lisence plate on here that said "OUTATIME," but instead I just put an orange thing to represent the futuristic ID plate they get in BTTF2.
"The only thing that can generate 1.21 gigawatts of electricity is a bolt of lightning!"
"A bolt of lightning!"
Here is the DeLorean with the lightning rod heading into the Flux Capacitor. Marty and Doc use this rod to power the car when Marty forgets to bring extra plutonium.
"That was the day I invented time travel. I remember it vividly. I was standing on the edge of my toilet hanging a clock when I fell, hit my head on the sink, and when I came to... I had a vision! A revelation! A picture in my head! A picture of this... this is what makes time travel possible... The Flux Capacitor."
And here, my friend, is the Flux Capacitor. Sorry for the otherwise Spartan interior, but I'm not very good at interior detailing, and besides, I just built this car to be easily recognizable from the outside, as I said.
"When this baby hits 88 miles per hour... you're gonna see some serious $#&@."
Sorry for mixing grey with bley (new grey/bluish-grey), but I couldn't find enough available tiles in the right color, and everything seems to lose points for being too "studdy."
"Marty, you have to come back with me!"
"Back to the Future!"
I know the minifigs are crappy, but I actually never intended to make them. As I've said three times now, I just built this to make a cameo appearance in my comic book. I later considered making decals and everything for the minifigs, but I only got as far as Marty's futuristic jacket... so Doc is rather sloppy, especially with the Drizzt Do'Urden hairpiece. Heh.
"Doc, what are you doing?"
"I need fuel."
This is Mr. Fusion! When Doc returns from the future to grab Marty and Jennifer, he has this replacement for the old plutonium... a little "blender" that turns trash into power. It actually says on the side "Mr. Fusion - Home Energy Reactor."
transform into hover mode! Isn't that great? All you have to do to switch their position is... well... take them off, replace several pieces, and then put them back together again... heh. I guess I should have called Mr. Wilson III.
Must've missed this one on your site, Scorp. It's fairly accurate, although there are a few problems, like the fact that the black thing should go all the way back. Still a decent representation of the DeLorian, though a lot of your other stuff is better.
It's a nearly faithful recreation of the car from one of the greatest movies of all time. The rear of the car could be revised and i would recommend using hinged bricks positioned at the end of the car on both sides, set so that they extend to the roof of the car. I really love the idea for the gull-wing doors. I actually have a six wide Delorian nearly completed but couldn't find a solution for doors(yours wouldn't work for me either) since every possible one would require the car to be 8 wide and I don't want to do that.
