Last week we reported on Mattel Toy’s exclusive pre-order offer of a replica prop Hoverboard like those seen in Back to the Future 2 (and 3) on MattyCollector.com. Last Friday, Beyond the Marquee’s AJ Locascio (the voice of “Marty McFly” in the Telltale Back to the Future Video Games) in conjunction with BTTF.com the Official News site for Back to the Future, was invited into the TOP-SECRET Mattel Design Center in Los Angeles. We met with MattyCollector.com’s Marketing Manager Scott Neitlich, who gave us an Exclusive look into the design and technology going into this high-end collector’s item. Because of the abundance of content and that mere fact that we are all Back to the Future fans here at BTM, we’ve extended the episode a few more minutes to pack in all the details and behind the scenes info!
And if our recent visit to Mattel wasn’t damn cool as it is, we’ve been given an exclusive personal invite to be on hand again in a few days to the Mattel Design Center when a very important player involved with making of the Back to the Future films will be paying the Matty Collector gang a visit.
Check out our prior BTM post with all the details for the pre-ordering of the Back to the Future 2015 Hoverboard from the MattyCollector.com website; http://beyondthemarquee.com/?p=4804, The pre-order runs right now thru March 20th, so Back to the Future fans, check out the video web-series of our visit to Mattel and get an in-depth look at what’s in store … don’t be left behind on a chance to own a piece of the future!
Here are some shots we took of the work-in-progress “Looks Like” Hoverboard used to promote the product at the recent New York Toy Fair and an early technical Prototype.
…and while you’re still here, check out these rockin’ versions of the Back to the Future theme we found on YouTube recently…we even incorporated a couple into this week’s episode!
