Back to the Future: LEGO CUUSOO Review

In the spirit of the film series - and partially because we didn’t get the set until very recently - we’ve decided to release our review of the Back to the Future (BTTF) DeLorean Time Machine LEGO CUUSOO set to here, several months after it’s been put on sale. This set is just one of a growing collection created by the minds at "Team BTTF", a set of conceptual LEGO artists that aim to support the Michael J.

While it’s fairly clear that the toy group has quite a few sets ready to roll in test form here nearer Spring, this week it’s been made clear that K’NEX Titanfall toys will be released later this year.

This is a viral campaign, working with celebrities like model Billy Zane (also BTTF actor), skateboarder Tony Hawk, and actor (and the original "Doc" from Back to the Future) Christopher Lloyd. They also suggest that it’s all very "real."

This week the first look we've had up close and personal with the creators and the artwork behind Star Wars Rebels is close at hand. What we're seeing here is a preview for the animated show that'll take place between the 3rd and 4th Star Wars movies.
