After the first batch of official Mattel Back to the future hoverboards (non working replicas though) have been sold out in no time at the beginning of the year, here comes another chance to get your hands on it. Matty Collector is now accepting pre-orders. The 1:1 scale model was made in cooperation with BTTF movie’s special effects supervisor Michael Lantieri, prop maker Mary Anne Lantieri and the BTTF godfather Bob Gale and features of course the original design. However, it does not fly, but a includes an authentic “whooshing” sound sampled directly from the film. We suggest you head right over there and place that order, before it’s too late… again.
