Back to the Future(BTTF) - DeLorean Time Machine is a project on LEGO CUUSOO created by m.togami and Sakuretsu. The project was started on October 1st, 2011, and reached 10,000 supporters on April 29th, 2012. It is the 4th LEGO CUUSOO product.

At first, there was doubt regarding the passage of this project, since the presented model featured a few "illegal" techniques, and LEGO would have to obtain a license for the potential set. But Universal seemed willing, and LEGO has produced a set based off of the project, with a release date of July 18th, 2013 in select European LEGO stores and a worldwide release of August 1st, 2013.

My name is Masashi, a founder of Team BTTF. I'd like to thank you for visiting my page! I'm a Huge fan of the "Back to the Future (BTTF)" series, I even remember it as the first movie I've ever seen, and I've been in love with the series ever since! When I was a child I tried many times to build the DeLorean Time Machine, however, the project was a difficult one because I lacked some specific LEGO bricks and minifigures.

LEGO CUUSOO is where wishes come true. Also, I strongly believe quotes from BTTF. "If you put your mind to it, you can accomplish anything." "Your future is whatever you make it."

Now, my dream is to create a Back to the Future themed series through LEGO CUUSOO. Please support and spread the word about my dream to make this a reality!

Masashi, Founder of Team BTTF

"提案者よりメッセージ" 私はまさしと申します。私は映画「バック・トゥ・ザ・フューチャー(以下BTTF)」の大ファンです。 BTTFレゴ商品化プロジェクトページにお越しいただきありがとうございます。

初めて見た映画はBTTFで、私が小さい頃、レゴ ブリックを使い、何度もデロリアンを作りましたが、とても難しかったです。なぜなら、特殊なブリックやいろんな色のブリック、マーティやドクのミニフィグが必要で満足行くものが作れませんでした。

私の夢はBTTF をテーマした製品シリーズをLEGO CUUSOOを通じて商品化することです。 是非私の願いに賛同してください。


"MESSAGE DU MASASHI" Mon nom est Masashi et je tiens a vous remercier de votre visite sur la page de mon projet! Je suis un grand fan de la serie ≪ Retour vers le Futur ≫, c'est le tout premier film que j' ai vu et depuis lors je suis tombe amoureux de la serie ! Etant plus jeune j'ai souvent essaye de construire la Delorean, cependant ce projet etait difficile car il me manquait des pieces LEGO specifiques ainsi que des Minifigures. LEGO CUUSOO est un endroit ou les reves deviennent realite. De meme, je crois sincerement dans cette citation tiree du film : ≪ Tu peux tout accomplir dans la vie si tu as le courage de le rever ≫ Mon reve aujourd'hui est de creer les Machines a voyager dans le temps de Retour vers le Futur au travers de LEGO CUUSOO. Ce MOC et les Minifigures qui l' accompagnent ne sont qu' un exemple de mes idees.

S' il vous plait, apportez-moi votre soutient et parlez-en autour de vous afin de realiser ce reve !

Congratulatory message from LEGO for 1,000 votes



Congratulations on crossing over 1,000 votes! We usually give this message at 500, so this is coming a bit late. Better late than never!

Our team is impressed with the detail in your DeLorean model and the Doc and Marty minifigs. Given the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future is coming up in 2015 we see the potential of some BTTF commemorative LEGO models. Keep the ideas and the supporters coming! Best of luck in your journey to 10,000 supporters.

Congratulatory Message from LEGO for 5,000 votes!


Dear m.togami,

Congratulations on passing this milestone of 5,000 supporters on LEGO CUUSOO for the Back to the Future DeLorean Time Machine! You're halfway there!

Over the coming weeks, veteran designer Steen Sig Andersen, the same designer who built the final Shinkai 6500 and LEGO Minecraft Micro World models, will investigate your DeLorean model and build our own concept. We will post the results here with our comments once that is complete.

Best wishes as you continue on your journey to achieving 10,000 supporters on LEGO CUUSOO.

Congrats on 10,000 Supporters, m.togami!


Slow and steady wins the race. You came out in front early on with the DeLorean model and you have done it thanks to hard work and persistence. The awesome LEGO model didn't hurt, either. Congratulations!

As we're approaching the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future, this project could not have come at a better time. Congratulations on achieving 10,000 supporters. We now officially advance this project to the Review phase.

What happens now? This project moves from the Idea stage to the Review stage. A "LEGO Jury" composed of designers, product managers, and other key team members will examine the idea. We'll build concept models and determine if the concept meets our high standards for what it takes to be a LEGO product, including playability, safety, and fit with the LEGO brand. Every LEGO product goes through a process like this and must meet the same standards.

Timing of the LEGO Review From here forward, the LEGO Review will take place quarterly. The next review will be held starting in June and will include all projects that reach 10,000 between now and then. We'll update the LEGO CUUSOO blog with additional details soon; this project crossed the threshhold before we were fully prepared to provide this update.

The review is a thorough process and from it's start, it will take several weeks. When finished, we make a "go/no go" decision to develop and sell the DeLorean. Naturally before we can announce the results of the review, we will need to secure a license to produce this product. We will inform you of our decision, and if green-lighted, this project goes into the longest phase of the project; the Development phase. During this time, LEGO model designers refine the product and develop it for release, we create the product materials (box, instructions, marketing), and get everything ready for a production run. This takes several months.

We will post followup information and our decision here.
