My build thread had some renewed interest and I decided to open an interest thread to keep it all separated.

Here is the link if you want to follow the research I put into making the replica.

http://www.therpf.com/showthread.php?t=146312

These are all CNC cut from rigid pink foam. This material is used to allow you to display these outside for Halloween or inside for a collection. They are lightweight for shipping and storage. Each tombstone is made from multiple layers of the foam and the center layer has slots cut in it for using wooden stakes to secure it to the ground. These will not slide free like the metal ones you buy at the store.

I will include a tombstone finishing guide to aid in finishing these. These are made from foam which can melt if you use the wrong kind of paint on them. I prefer Latex house paint.

There are three versions: - (Prices do not include shipping)

1. Emmett Brown - $65
2. Clint Eastwood - $65
3. Double Sided - Emmett (Side 1) / Clint (Side 2) - $85

The tombstone measures around 36" tall and 19" wide and 2.25" thick.





Info on shipping for those that have asked:

UPS is the cheapest for the continental US.

I pulled up some samples from different areas of the country and found the following to give you an idea what it might cost. (cost is based on a single tombstone)

Los Angeles - $28
New York City - $28
Orlando - $24
Phoenix - $27
Omaha - $20

Average cost is ~$25

For shipping international, USPS is the only carrier that is "affordable". I say that lightly, because it is still a steep charge.

Shipping to UK for one tombstone is $65.

These rates are all based on using a box sized 37x27x4 which is the most affordable size for a single tombstone.

Thanks,

-Eric

Wow - this is super cool! I don't have a large BTTF collection, but at this price, I may have to jump on this! Curious about shipping - I live in AZ.

Curious also to see a successful paint job...

Re: Here Lies Emmett Brown

yes uk price pls !
We could split the shipping maybe? ^^

- - - Updated - - -

Maybe we could share shipping as you don't live that far from me Emma??
Totally! I was thinking that actually, didn't see you were interested as well, but yeah it would be even more convenient with you :p. Depends how much it will be for 2-3 tombstones shipped together!

Re: Here Lies Emmett Brown

Did some more digging.

Internationally, I can't ship more than two tombstones together. USPS will not take a box bigger than what is required to ship two tombstones. Shipping for two in the same box to UK is $100 even. USPS charges by weight for boxes with a girth under 108". They do not ship boxes any bigger than that.

The only other option I can offer is a scaled version to get the overall cost down to a reasonable amount.

Its the same cost to ship in the US, whether you get one or two. UPS charges dimensional weight up to 28 pounds.

Re: Here Lies Emmett Brown

Hello just a quick question is there any chance you could include a small piece of the foam (cutt off) so we can test paints etc on it before we go full out on the main prop! As I would prefer to mess up on the scrap bit if you know what I mean? No worries if you can't I still want mine! Great prop :) thanks

Re: Here Lies Emmett Brown

Good question!

There will be plenty of extra material included with each tombstone for testing.

Thanks,
