Get Your Own Levitating DeLorean on Indiegogo
Bohs Hansen / 4 years ago
We have barely entered 2016 and I think that I’ve already found my favourite collectable of the year, at the very least it will be a very tough one to beat. I almost missed this completely, but I’m glad that I came across the Indiegogo campaign site for the 1:20 sized and first truly Levitating DeLorean Time Machine collectible, the well-known vehicle from the Back to the Future movies.
The Levitating DeLorean Time Machine collectible is off to a good start in both the development and the fundraising campaign. The working prototypes have been created and the Indiegogo campaigns funds will be used to create the molds and get the mass production going. All the early-bird specials are gone, but there only were 100 of them and the only bonus here was included shipping. Anyone else can still get their pledge in for $195 USD plus shipping costs. At the time of writing, the Levitating DeLorean Time Machine collectible has gathered $25,000 USD out of the $30,000 funding goal.
The company behind the collectible is Kids Logic Co Ltd based out of Hong Kong. The toy manufacturer was established in 2009 and has already created high-quality official collectible toys from titles such as Transformers G1, Saint Seiya (Japan Anime), Arale (Japan Anime), Transformers: Age of Extinction, and Street Fighters.

The model is based on the car from the 1989 Back to the Future II movie and in 1:20 scale with its 22cm length. The magnetic floating base pushes the DeLorean Time Machine into the air where it will levitate for as long as the power is connected or the batteries don’t run out of juice. It can be powered by either a 12V AC/DC adapter or sixteen AA batteries via the included battery pack enclosure.
The base has LED lighting around the base when it’s turned on and also showcases the Back To The Future II logo on the front. The car itself is also filled with LED lighting effects and you can also switch the wheels between flying and driving mode. The flying mode wheelset also comes with built-in LED effect. In total, the car has over 30 LED lights at various points. The model is built from over 200 individual pieces and carefully painted to resemble the original from the movie. Details are important in collectables and this is one and not a toy, just to clarify.
There’s still 23 days left, so that’s plenty of time to secure yourself one of these very cool levitating collectable Time Machines in the form of a Back To The Future II DeLorean. You can find the Indiegogo campaign here.
