    Am I the only one excited about the silicon molds you can see in one of the pics? I can now have BTTF ice and chocolate treats.

    Yeah they are pretty cool, though wish there were molds of characters or the DeLorean as well. Check out the above link for a close up shot.

    Nice, I look forward to that Roland. Hopefully it will not be slimy .

    Not sure if it's possible to identity the manure truck model. If you can track it down, then perhaps you can re-create a bigger diorama set along with the Ford.
    Here are two screen shots of the truck. Maybe there's a car expert who can identify the truck.

    A funny trivia: the "D. Jones" sign is attached on different places in both scenes. It's obviously the same truck, just the sign has moved.

    According to IMCDB, it's a 1947 Chevrolet 4100 and that same truck was used in the sequel. Check the following pages and go through the comments where they confirm it. Looked up for its model car, didn't find anything yet.

    you can get 1/18 chevy 3100 pick ups ..would need to remove the pick up bed and scratch make the wooden manure box, and the wheel base should be longer

    theyre very similar , the 4100 bit meant they could haul more weight but the bodys were close from 47-53

    Cool, thanks for confirming that Steve. Going to add that to my future to-buy items list. Currently seem to be available at around $30+.

    Hot Toys answers question (#15) about their BTTF figures. Still hoping to see a preview this year.

    https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=1&theater



    Few other updates from Tyler who is the Art Director at Factory Entertainment. He posted this back in March 2013 on the Sideshow Collectors forum thread.

    "Hi All..

    Oh man - I have some damage control to do here

    My name is Tyler and I am the new Art Director at Factory Entertainment. I started right after Toy Fair. (For some background, I sculpted a few of their upcoming replicas as a freelancer - like the Creature From The Black Lagoon Fossil hand, and the upcoming Wolf Man cane...)

    Anyhow - Everything we showed at Toy Fair Shakem wise were First draft sculpt prototypes. Literally, many of them it was the first time WE had even seen them. Since then, extensive sculptural revisions have been sent to the artists (albiet, some needed more than others) and I have personally undertaken resculpting a lot of the facial likenesses.

    And I mean, I get it - There are limitations to what we can get with a product like this. Im a collector too so, ya... I understand people who collect sideshow and hot toys saying they arent for them. But just so you dont write them off based on first appearances, know that we are working on getting them as good as we can (and I mean that sincerely as a fan and sculptor)

    You can always email me at tyler@factoryent.com as well if you want any updates or have a question or really anything!

    Thanks everyone.

    Tyler"

    Another question posted by one of the members there.

    tbay said:
    Are Marty and doc going to be in the same scale as your princess bride shakems? I'd be interest in picking them up if the heads were 1/6 scale

    That is if the sculpts are revised to capture more likeness
    tylerh said:
    Hi tbay -

    No they are actually scaled more proportionately.. Like not so much "big bobble head" and more 6" scale size. I actually just resculpted Marty's face a few days ago

    Feb 15, 2014, 1:45 PM - Back to the Future action figures #35

    Some pics of the official Back to the Future action figures from Funko and Super7 launching later this year have been made available:

    Marty McFly (1985)
    Doc Emmett Brown (1985)
    Biff Tannen (1955)
    George McFly (1955)

    A bit of a step up from the Kubricks, Minimates and LEGO Minifigures, but still not the most accurate resemblance to the original actors. I guess that’s down to the “retro Kenner style” but I’m sure they could’ve made them look a bit more similar. It looks like they still have a few nice details though…

    I am digging it and I am planning to buy all these BTTF figures along with the other movie lines in the ReAction series from Funko.

    These figures are a throwback to the retro look of figures from the 70s/80s which back then didn't have much actor likeness either.

    We can expect actor likeness in the $200 figures from Hot Toys next year.

    And when a toy company decides to make 6" figures with actor likeness, we can expect those BTTF figures in the $20 range.

    Wow. How long have I wanted a 3.75" Doc and Marty...

    "Subject to final licensor approval"

    Lets hope so. Do not approve!

    They look like cartoon character action figures. Like if Doc and Marty did a guest spot on Droids or Ewoks. The sculpts are not even close to the quality of ReActions own Alien figures.

    Plus they photoshopped the OUTATIME plate onto the front of the DeLorean on the package. Perfect.

    I don't see a point to action figures if they don't even remotely look like the characters. That marty is terrible. So far i'm not impressed.

    I was wondering the same , but I don't think DST's Monopoly is going to come even close to the level of cool detailing like Beechy's version.

    BTW it bugs me that DST is still using the BTTF Part II logo for most of their BTTF product packaging, cause the BTTF logo licensing is more pricey.

    Not toy related but I just read an article on Cnet saying that Nike is set to come out w/BTTF style power laces next year but there's no word on whether they'll be brining back the Air Mags to put them on.

    The logo font and text are itself identical, but many Back to the Future (Part I) related products from DST including the Part I DeLorean model car packaging have the words "Back to the Future - Part II" as the logo on them. In relation to the actual final product it's not really a big deal, but it's the level of cop out DST continues to make to save on higher licensing fees.

    You can see the full logo on the top of the monopoly box, where the blue "Pending Licensor Approval" note has been placed.

    The flying DeLorean graphic is great and was used in promoting the second film, but unless this product is specific to the second film (and I am pretty sure it's not), it shouldn't carry the Part II logo and should say "Back to the Future" alone, including for items representing the whole trilogy,

    Oh I didn't notice that! I was thinking I was missing some other major difference in the logos, but I didn't know you meant literally the logo with "part 2" on there. I agree that definitely looks off unless it's a product specific to part 2.

    Vivek's point is solid. A friend gave me the DST 1/15 Time Machine thinking it was the hover conversion version because it had the part II on the package. He was disappointed because he thought he paid for the version with the folding wheels, not realizing to look for Mr. Fusion.

    I mean whatever they gotta do to make the products is fine with me. It's nice to see merchandise. I guess I'm curious to know how much they are really saving. Sure the first movie cemented BTTF in film history but my feeling is there is a lot more to sell from the sequels. You'd think the Part II license would be the pricey one.
